In a saturated market where it is increasingly becoming harder to stand out, the LG G2, with its ultra-thin bezels, and unique rear button layout has proved to be another great smartphone from the South Korean company.

Be it for style, convenience, or ultimate protection, there are a lot of options available to help protect the LG G2. Here’s a roundup of some of the best cases for the LG G2. Let’s get started!

Note: This list is divided into different categories, and every category will include two sections – one for the Verizon LG G2, and another for the International/T-Mobile/AT&T/Sprint version. This is because the Verizon LG G2 features wireless charging, which means that the back cover is slightly more curved, and the device itself is a little thicker. This is why the Verizon LG G2 requires cases that are specifically made only for this version.

    I am a pretty big fan of those cruzerlite cases. Good for money.

    • AndroidBoss

    • MadCowOnAStick

      You also get to advertise Android! :D

      • Jayfeather787

        Best part about it!

      • AndroidBoss

        Android doesn’t need advertising because it’s the most popular phone operating system. But I really like that cool Android logo on the device.

        • MadCowOnAStick

          Makes the apple fanbois jelly!

  • AndroidBoss

    If you want the best case for the quality, looks, and money- always pick the Cruzerlite Bugdroid.

    Trident Aegis – Dropped down half a flight of stairs (7 or 8 steps) and screen no longer functioned. 2nd try with same phone, 1 yr old son hit it off deck floor only twice, and it separated the touch screen from the visual screen, making it impossible to use the phone. I DO NOT recommend this case as it has not protected my phone from damage 2/2 times.

    My Droid X had a Trident Krakken case, and it protected it for 3 years with zero damage. Its still in mint condition, just replaced it for a newer phone. Rather regretting it now, too. I dropped my Droid X from the seat of a Semi Tractor a few dozen times getting out of the seat, and never did it get damaged. Not sure if the case is weaker, or if the phones are just more fragile now.

    The G2 is easily a competitor for every other high-end smartphone out there. The “weird” button layout works for us, and it’s paired with some smart touch functions that are well thought out. The phone looks and feels great, and just works as a smartphone should.
