Editor’s note: We will continue to update this list of the best cases for the Sony Xperia 1 II as more become available.
Banzn Slim Fit
While you want to ensure that your Sony Xperia 1 II stays safely protected, you probably don’t want to add too much bulk. The case itself is only 0.8mm thick, but a raised lip provides protection for the screen and camera units. It won’t provide too much protection against drops, though the Banzn Slim Fit should be more than enough to tackle the daily wear and tear.
Spigen Liquid Crystal
Spigen’s Liquid Crystal is another great option if you want a thin case and the clear design helps you show off your device. The TPU material is not only easy to attach, but it also provides a degree of air cushioning in each corner. A thin lip helps to protect the screen and cameras and precise cutouts allow for easy access to the buttons and ports.
Anccer Thin Fit
A rugged polycarbonate case stands up to drops and scratches better than a TPU bumper, and Anccer’s Thin Fit offers protection with a pop of color. The case is currently available in four bright finishes that should keep your Sony Xperia 1 II safe and sound. While the back of your phone should stay safe, the button cutouts are larger than some other cases so make sure to be careful!
KWMobile TPU case
The matte black TPU case from KWMobile adds extra grip to your Sony Xperia 1 II so you shouldn’t have to worry about the slippery glass surface. It boasts high-quality shock-absorbing rubber that will stand up to bumps and drops while keeping a slim form-factor. Although the case doesn’t appear to have thicker ridges around the screen and camera, the case itself provides a thicker layer of rubber cushioning.
KWMobile Wallet case
Why carry around a phone and a wallet when you can combine them in one stylish package? KWMobile also offers a faux leather wallet case with card slots, a cash pocket, and a magnetic clasp. Sony gave the Xperia 1 II a long 21:9 screen that should be perfect for streaming when you flip the wallet case into kickstand mode. A TPU bumper helps to keep your phone securely in place while you go about your day.
Spigen Rugged Armor
The Spigen Rugged Armor is a sleek TPU case that offers decent shock protection without adding much bulk to your phone. It has a carbon fiber design at the top and bottom, though the real protection comes from the Air Cushion technology and a durable interior spider web pattern. Spigen’s Rugged Armor case features tactile buttons and precise cutouts for a comfortable and secure experience.
