Which iPhone is best for your needs?

MNML iPhone X Case


If you like thin iPhone X cases look no further than the MNML iPhone X slim case. Their slogan is “Unbelievably Thin Phone Cases!” and they are not exaggerating. Just 0.35mm thin and with zero branding the MNML Case appeals to those looking for a minimalist no bulk case. You aren’t going to get a lot of protection from drops but it will keep your iPhone from scratching. Available in 6 colors including Jet Black, Clear Black, Matte Black, Clear White, Really Blue and Metallic Red. You can grab a MNML Case for $14.99.


Apple Folio iPhone X case

This is a wallet case, which means it covers the back as well as the front of your iPhone X. It sports a minimalistic design Apple is known for and has a few compartments inside for storing things like credit cards and cash.

The case has a microfiber lining inside for added protection and can stay on the device when you’re charging it wirelessly. The great thing about it is that the display wakes up when you open it and goes back to sleep when you close it. It’s made from real leather and comes in four colors: Cosmos Blue, Taupe, Black, and Berry. The case has a premium feel to it and is easy on the eyes, but it’s also super-expensive — it will set you back $100.

Apple silicone iPhone X case

Designed by Apple, this case is made from silicone and won’t add a lot of bulk to your smartphone. It has a clean design with the company’s logo positioned in the middle and is compatible with wireless charging.

It features a microfiber lining to protect your iPhone X and comes in a total of 12 colors. Silicone cases are usually cheap — around $10 — but this one is more expensive because it’s an original. You can get it from Apple via the button below for $40.

Tech21 Evo Mesh iPhone X case

The manufacturer claims that this case uses three layers of advanced impact materials that will protect your iPhone X from drops of up to 10 feet (3 meters). It’s made from TPU and has a unique mesh pattern that makes it stand out.

The case works with wireless charging and comes in four colors: white, pink, black, and blue. It’s partly transparent and therefore doesn’t completely cover up Apple’s logo on the back of the device. You can get your hands on it for $40.

Fly Hawk iPhone X wallet case

Looking for an affordable wallet case for your iPhone X? If so, the one offered by Fly Hawk might be for you. It sports a simple yet stylish design and has a few compartments inside for storing cash and up to three cards.

The case is made from PU leather and can be used as a kickstand when watching videos. It’s also compatible with wireless charging. You can get it in black, brown, red, or khaki on Amazon for $16.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid iPhone X case

Spigen’s case has a polycarbonate (PC) back panel and a shock-absorbing TPU bumper. All four corners are guarded by the company’s Air Cushion technology for added protection.

The case is compatible with wireless charging and sports raised bezels to keep the display and the rear cameras elevated on flat surfaces. It has a transparent back to show off the iPhone X’s original design and a colored TPU bumper — although a completely transparent version is also available. Pricing ranges from $12 to $14 depending on the color.

Torras silicone iPhone X case

This is the case to get if the original Apple silicone case (see item 2 above) is too rich for your blood. It looks pretty much the same, although it lacks Apple’s branding.

The case has a microfiber lining to protect your iPhone X from scratches and is compatible with wireless charging. It sports a raised lip that protects the display when the device is placed face down and is available in seven colors. You’ll have to dish out between $17 and $19 to get it, depending on the color you choose.

Fly Hawk iPhone X wallet case

This is another wallet case from Fly Hawk, but it is different from the first one (see item 4 above). It looks more like a traditional case and comes equipped with two credit card slots at the back.

The product is made from PU leather and has a raised lip to make sure the display is elevated on flat surfaces. It works with wireless charging and can be yours in six colors: black, brown, red, blue, gray, and khaki. You can get it on Amazon for $14.

Spigen Neo Hybrid iPhone X case

If you’re looking for a case that stands out, this is the one to get. It has a gorgeous two-layer design, which means it’s made from two different material — a TPU back panel and a polycarbonate (PC) bumper frame.

The case has an eye-catching herringbone pattern and can stay on your iPhone X while it’s being charged wirelessly. Pricing depends on the color you choose. There are five of them available, with the cheapest costing $15 and the most expensive one going for $17.

Zizo Bolt iPhone X case

The Zizo Bolt is a rugged case with military grade drop protection. If you’re in the habit of dropping your iPhone X frequently, this is a great option for you because of the high level of protection it offers.

The case is equipped with a built-in kickstand and comes with a belt clip with a 360-degree rotatable swivel. There’s also a free Zizo screen protector with 9H hardness included in the box. It supports wireless charging despite its thickness and is available in 10 color options. You can buy it from Amazon for $18.

ESR iPhone X case

This is the thinnest and most minimal case on this list. It’s transparent to show off the iPhone X’s original design but also comes with colored edges — black, rose gold, or silver. The case is only 1 mm thick, so you’ll barely notice it’s there.

The case is made from TPU and has raised edges to protect the cameras and display. It’s compatible with wireless charging and can be yours for $12 — get it from Amazon via the button below.
