LG has discontinued the iconic (though flawed) G line, replacing it with the brand-new LG Velvet. From the sleek camera housing to the vivid color finishes, the Velvet is rich in style points. However, you’ll still want to do whatever you can to keep the device safe from the scuffs and scrapes of daily life. Here are our picks of the best cases you can get for the LG Velvet.

The best LG Velvet cases:
Editor’s note: We will continue to update this list of the best cases for the LG Velvet as more are released.
Spigen Rugged Armor
Spigen is one of the top names in phone cases, so it should come as no surprise that the Rugged Armor makes this list. As a sleek matte black TPU case, the Rugged Armor is easy to slip on and off, while carbon fiber details add a touch of luxury. Air Cushion technology in all four corners offers shock resistance in case of drops, and precise cutouts allow access to the charging port.
The Ringke Fusion is exactly what you want if your goal is to show off the design of your LG Velvet. It’s a crystal clear case made with a flexible TPU bumper and a polycarbonate back panel. The bumper makes the case easy to apply, while the back panel should stand up to scrapes and scratches, no problem. It’s also compatible with most case-friendly screen protectors and you can attach a lanyard to the QuikCatch hole.
Speck Presidio Exotech
Speck’s Presidio Exotech case offers a great blend of durability and portability. It’s MIL-STD certified for drop protection, and a single-layer design simplifies the application process. Speck’s case is Microban treated for cleanliness, which is a must in the current COVID 19 landscape. A raised bezel guards the camera housing and screen, but the case is thin enough overall to support wireless charging.
If you want a very thin case that offers a pop of color, the Anccer Colorful is a good way to go. A 0.3mm lip protects the camera housing, but the rest of the case is even thinner and fits easily in your pocket. Currently available in black and green, it’s easy to add a touch of color to your already-bright LG Velvet. Cutouts offer access to the power button as well as the headphone jack and charging port.
All of the cases so far have been great for protection, but what if you want to use your case to free up pocket space? That’s what the Feitenn Wallet does by offering three card slots and a cash pocket so you can leave your wallet at home. The folding cover also doubles as a kickstand for media streaming, and you can choose from gray, black, or blue finishes. Feitenn’s wallet case integrates a TPU bumper to keep your phone safe from drops as well.
The Covert case from Ghostek is another unique option with a semi-transparent finish that comes in clear, pink, and smoke. All four corners utilize R2x technology to protect against drops of up to eight feet, and a thick bumper around the edges makes it easy to grip the LG Velvet. Ghostek’s Covert has a folding metal kickstand that’s perfect for streaming from just about anywhere.
That does it for our picks of the best LG Velvet cases, but there’s more to read. Here’s a bit of good news about the future of other LG devices:
