These are the best iPhone X cases you can buy right now. If you plan to buy the iPhone X, also called the iPhone 10, you will want to put it in a case to keep it safe. Even if you buy AppleCare+, you will want to consider an iPhone 10 case for the short term since repairs and replacements will be in short supply.
We’ve been testing out iPhone X cases from top manufacturers for the last several weeks to find out which ones feel best and fit best on a iPhone X model so that you can order your new iPhone X case and have it in time for when your new iPhone arrives.
The iPhone X pre-orders start later this month and will ship in November. If you are looking for a way to keep your nearly bezel-less iPhone safe these are your best options.
We found out the hard way that phones like this are easy to break from even a short drop after shattering the corner and part of the screen of the Galaxy S8+ after a very short drop. Even if you buy a $10 iPhone X case for your $1,000 iPhone, you will be better than just carrying it naked in your pocket. As you can see in the video above, Tim Cook’s iPhone X falls out of his pocket while sitting. This could easily end up bad, with your iPhone X sliding out of your pocket onto the floor, which is how our Galaxy S8+ screen broke.
Here are the best iPhone X cases you can buy to protect your new iPhone investment from drops, damage and to make it more waterproof.
x-doria Defense Lux iPhone X Case
The x-doria Defense Lux iPhone X case is amazing. This case looks great, feels awesome and offers military grade drop protection without adding much bulk.
We love the look of this case in Ballistic Nylon and Black Carbon on the iPhone X. These cases not only offer a cool look, but the back is actually textured like the material listed. The Ballistic Nylon case has a soft, but grippy feel to the back just like you'd expect from looking at it. The Black Carbon feels like textured carbon fiber and looks awesome.
x-doria designed this case to protect your phone from drops up to 10 feet on concrete and there is . sound channel to direct the speaker towards you instead of straight out the bottom. The raised edge keeps the screen safe when setting the pone face down on a table.
