You may have heard by now: Research from SquareTrade has named the iPhone X one of the most fragile smartphones in history and easily the most fragile iPhone to ever hit the market. That hasn't stopped people from buying them, of course: At launch, Apple sold 3 million of them in just a few minutes. Add those two facts up, and you'll realize that millions of iPhone X cases are going to have to start pulling their weight immediately. Here's a look at the absolute best iPhone X cases on the market, to help you protect your new $1,000 phone.
At 0.02 inches thick, this is your thinnest option for a case that won't be conspicuous. It's more for protecting the device from scratches and scrapes than long falls, so you might want something sturdier. But if appearances are a big concern, it's tough to get a case slicker than this.
Another option for the less noticeable case is the “air skin” iphone X case, which comes in semi-transparent lightweight material that includes black or clear as colors.
Looking for a protective yet affordable option? Look no further: Amazon's personal recommendation is this chunky black case, which comes with a “Military Grade Shock Absorption” that incorporates dual-layer (hard & soft) materials in order to absorb impacts. And there's a one-year-long money-back guarantee.
Want a place to stash your credit card while out on the town? This all-leather case comes with a leather card pocket that fits 2 to 3 ID, commuter or bank cards. Colors include black, tan, olive, and grey.
For those who love the leather but hate the “wallet” pocket, try out this sleek folio to class up your iPhone X. You'll wind up with a minimalist look that's still rugged enough to protect from scrapes and, thanks to a semi-rigid edge, protect against drops as well.
Protection against ten-foot drops is the goal with this iPhone X case, but it also boasts an “integrated front facing audio channel amplifies sound and redirects audio to the front of the phone for a better surround sound experience.”
