6 Best iPhone X Cases to Protect Your $1,000 Phone

Adam Rowe

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.

Totallee Thin iPhone X Case

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.

Price: $16.99

Spigen Air Skin iPhone X Case

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.

Price: $13.99

Black LUPA Case

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.

Price: $12.99

Mujjo Full Leather Wallet

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.

Price: $45.95

Nomad All-Leather Folio

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.

Price: $54.95

X-Doria Defense Shield

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.”

Price: $29.95
