Five Best iPhone Cases

Five Best iPhone Cases

iPhone owners have thousands of potential cases to choose from. Some are slim and protect your phone without adding weight or bulk; others incorporate extra features such as pockets at the expense of size and shape. This week, we’re going to look at five of the best iPhone cases, based on reader nominations.

Honourable mentions this week go out to Speck Cases, specifically the PixelSkin HD, which is available for a variety of devices. It’s a soft, rubberised case that protects your device’s back and sides without obstructing any of the ports. Also worth mention are Lifeproof Cases, designed to put up with an incredible amount of punishment, including being dropped in the water. If you’re hard on your phone, they’re seriously worth a look. We also want to give a shout-out to the well-regarded Switcheasy Case and to the Australian-designed Opena, which adds a built-in bottle opener.

This is definitely a competitive field. If you have an iPhone case you couldn’t live without, tell us why in the comments.
