Apple iPhone X Silicone Case

We'll start in the most obvious place, and that's Apple. Each year Apple releases new iPhone cases, and the X is no exception.

The cheapest of Apple's cases is the iPhone X Silicone Case, which is available in nine colours including Blue Cobalt shown here.

You can't get much of a better fit than a case made by Apple itself, and this one includes the Apple logo on the back, too.

There is a slightly raised edge on the front of Apple's Silicone case to offers some protection to the screen, but it's minimal so a screen protector might be wise.

If you've yet to order your iPhone X, you can find the best deals here - and if you want to keep your screen as safe as the rest of the device, check our our iPhone X screen protector guide.

Apple iPhone X Leather Case

The second case available from Apple is the Leather case, which is a shell case just like the Silicone version but made from Leather (obviously). The more premium material adds £10/$10 to the cost, though. 

It's available in different colours, still with nine options to choose from. This one is Saddle Brown.


Apple iPhone X Leather Folio

The final option from Apple, and by far the most expensive, is the iPhone X Leather Folio case. Here you've got the additional protection of a front cover, and there is space for cards and notes, too.

The Leather Folio case covers the sides of the iPhone X too, thanks to an inner portion of the case that secures your iPhone in place.

It's available in four colours: Cosmos Blue, Taupe, Black or Berry (Taupe shown here).


Nodus iPhone X Shell Case

Nodus has some gorgeous iPhone cases, including the Shell Case for iPhone X. Available in several colours, it's made with leather for a premium finish and offers built-in magnetic docking.

The magnetic docking feature does cause some issues with wireless charging, but Nodus has tweaked the design to resolve that issue. The steel within the case that allows it to magnetically connect to the Micro Dock is now removable to allow you to choose between the two features.


Sena iPhone X Cases

Sena has long been a creator of high-quality crafted leather cases and handbags for smartphones, laptops and tablets, and is one of the few third-party case makers to be trusted by Apple for sales in its stores. Or you can buy direct from Sena.

It has nearly 20 cases available for the iPhone X, ranging in price from £30/$40 for the Corsa II Le Mans Racing Stripe Leather Snap On Case to £96/$130 for the Universal Isa Crossbody Leather Hand Bag for iPhone X.

The Corsa II is the thinnest Sena iPhone X case, at 1.7mm in water-resistant leather, and available in Black/Red, Blue/Black, Tan?Black and Grey/Black.

The Isa Crossbody Leather Hand Bag for iPhone X (also fits the iPhone 8 Plus, 8, 7 Plus, 7, 6s Plus, 6s, 6 Plus, and 6) is available in Black or Red in quilted pattern leather. It has a phone compartment, adjustable shoulder strap, interior pocket and zip closure, with gold finish hardware.


Bellroy iPhone X Card Case

This superbly well made card case for the iPhone X is one of our favourites. It's design is pretty unique, with a magnetic flap concealing room to slide in three cards of your choice.

While it adds a slight bump to the back of the phone it's not too fat to still put in your pocket. There's also gaps for a spare SIM and SIM tool if you need to swap over to your business number from time to time.

The build quality is excellent, and it comes in a range of attractive colours including this fetching navy blue.


Ted Baker for iPhone X

Ted Baker makes some stunning iPhone X cases that we think you'll love, and they're surprisingly well priced too.

There are simple shell cases starting at £29.95/$29.95, or folio cases that range up to £39.95/$39.95.

We particularly like the Shannon Mirror Folio case, which includes a mirror on the inside cover for practicality in addition to protection and style.

See the full range of cases here.


Proporta Carbon Series

The Carbon Series from Proporta includes the iPhone X Carbon Ultra, which is simple and sleek (it's only 2mm thick) but thanks to the carbon-fibre design is also light and durable.

It's reasonably priced at £20/$30, but is only available in the one colour.


Tech21 Pure Clear

Another simple, clear case we like is Tech21's Pure Clear, which features protective bumper edges and a double layer that is designed to protect from drops of up to two metres.


Snakehive iPhone X Collections

We love the iPhone X collections from Snakehive, which come in a gorgeous range of colours and styles at great prices. We're sure you'll find something to suit you.

From the Vintage Collection, for example, Snakehive's Leather Wallet is priced at £21.95 and will protect both the front and back of your new iPhone. It has a magnetic clasp to keep the case securely fastened in transit, and doubles as a handy stand, too.

The case comes in a variety of colours including this Vintage Plum.

Other collections from Snakehive include the Pastel Collection, Wilderness Wood Collection and Slimline Wallet Collection.


LoveCases Marble iPhone X Case

LoveCases offers some brilliantly priced options for protecting your iPhone X. We particularly like this slim and lightweight Marble Case, which fits perfectly and adds an extra touch of style for just £14.99/$17.49.

Buttons are protected by a frosted white plastic, so even they'll be safe from scratches.

A slight lip around the front of the case will add an element of protection for your screen, but we'd still recommend investing in a screen protector.


Vision Series for iPhone X

Snugg's Vision Series case for iPhone X lets the design of the phone itself shine through the clear TPU back, which has reinforced edges and a dual layer design to protect from bumps and knocks.

The bezels are raised to add protection to your iPhone's display, too.

It's available in a variety of colours and is brilliantly affordable. You can buy it now from Amazon.


Pulse for iPhone X

Snugg also offers an iPhone X cover called the Pulse, which is made with a textured silicone for extra grip and a polycarbonate bumper to protect the corners and edges.

Again, it's really well priced and it comes in a range of colours.


Mous Cases for iPhone X

Mous has a series of iPhone X cases in a selection of different attractive finishes.

Choose from Walnut, Bamboo, Shell, Leather or Carbon Fibre designs, all of which allow access to ports and buttons and come with a free screen protector.


Windsor for iPhone X

Also from Gear4 is the Windsor design, which uses the same D30 Impact Protection that has been drop tested up to three metres. This time, though, you get a frosted plastic back for a slightly more premium-looking design.


Olixar X-Trio Full Cover Case for iPhone X

Olixar’s Full Cover Case protects the front and back of the new iPhone, with a PET screen protector included. It’s a simple, sleek design that covers the sides of the phone too, and leaves all ports and buttons accessible.


Nomad Rugged iPhone X Case

If you want a rugged leather case for your iPhone X, this one from Nomad is worth considering: it's seriously sturdy for something with a leather back, avoiding the usual rugged aesthetic.

There are downsides though. The buttons are very stiff, and the leather in our samples was much darker than pictured, so be warned.


Olixar ExoShield iPhone X Case

Olixar's ExoShield is a hard shell iPhone X case with non-slip coating that should protect from bumps and scratches. It's a bit thicker than some of the other cases listed here, but it does offer more protection and is still transparent to allow the iPhone's design to shine through. Plus, it's only £9.99/$9.99 so it's one of the cheapest cases you can buy.

Olixar's cases are available from Amazon, as well as from Mobile Fun here.


Olixar X-Trex iPhone X Case

If you're looking for something a bit tougher, you might like the X-Trex case from Olixar, which has a multilayered design that aims to protect your iPhone from even quite serious falls.

There's also a secure card compartment for storing your bank cards or ID, as well as a flip-out kickstand.

The only concern we have with this one is that it's possible it will cause some interference with wireless charging, a new feature in the iPhone X. We are waiting to confirm whether or not this is true, but if you're planning to use wireless charging regularly this might be one to avoid until we're sure.


X-Doria Defense Shield for iPhone X

X-Doria's Defense Shield is also designed to offer a new level of protection. It's made with anondized aluminium, TPU and polycarbonate to create a case for the iPhone X that's military grade drop tested.

There are four colours to choose from, and it's reasonably priced, too.


X-Doria Defense Lux for iPhone X

Also from X-Doria is the Defense Lux series, which is also military grade drop tested but adds a touch of style with either leather or wood detail.


Mujjo Full Leather Case for iPhone X

We really like this leather case from Mujjo, which offers a similar design to Apple's offering, available in three stylish colours. It wraps around the back and sides of the iPhone X really neatly, with a snug fit that feels nice and secure.

The inside of the case is lined with microfibre for an extra layer of scratch protection. Overall, it's a sleek, simple and effective case that we really like. Bravo, Mujjo.


Greenwich Folio for iPhone X

If you've got a bit of extra cash to splash, you might enjoy the luxury of the Greenwich iPhone X cases. They are made from genuine leather, and include card slots for extra convenience.

The Blake Folio is among our favourites. You can buy it here.


UAG iPhone X cases

Available in a huge range of colours and styles, Urban Armor Gear's iPhone X cases offer top-notch protection with reinforced corners to save your phone from bumps and knocks.


Speck Presidio for iPhone X

Speck cases offer a great balance between style and security, combining attractive design with some of the sturdiest build quality we've found in any iPhone cases.

You can pick up the standard Presidio case from Amazon, but if you head to Speck's own site you can find more colours, metallic or clear finishes, or the heavy duty Presidio Ultra case for even better protection.


Tech21 Evo Tactical for iPhone X

Plenty of cases are designed to be minimalist, to avoid distracting from the phone itself, but the Evo Tactical from Tech21 features a surprisingly attractive angular design across the back that's welcome in its own right.

There's still solid 3m drop protection and a durable design, but the Evo Tactical looks the part - along with a tactile grippy feel that means it feels the part too.


Pad & Quill Bella Fino Wallet for iPhone X

There are plenty of leather iPhone wallets about, but Pad & Quill's Bella Fino is one of the most attractive we've seen so far, with solid construction out of American leather and space for a few cards or ID too.

There's an optional snap-on case, or you can just attach your phone directly to the case using the included adhesive. It's only sold in the US, but ships to the UK.


Skinit iPhone X Skin

If you're looking to add protection to your iPhone X, skip ahead - but if all you care about are aesthetics, you might want to consider Skinit.

These ultra-thin skins won't keep your phone any safer, but will let you deck it it out with superheroes, sports logos, artworks, or even textured finishes.


Caudabe Synthesis iPhone X Case

This is the toughest iPhone X case that Caudabe makes, pairing a flexible polymer bumper with a rigid rear to offer very solid protection in a slim design.

We like this version with a transparent back, but you can also get versions in solid colours.


Element Roll Cage iPhone X Case

This unique case from Element takes a cue from race car designs to introduce a protective cage to spread impact and protect the phone.

Even better, the cage is not only detachable, but can be flipped round and attached to the front to protect the screen for when you know you won't be using the device, but it may be at risk of damage.


Poetic Revolution iPhone X Case

There are plenty of tough iPhone X cases, but Poetic's Revolution offers one thing that's slightly different: a built-in screen protector.

It's actually built into the two-part frame, rather than simply included in the box, so it's very sturdy - but bear in mind that means it isn't quite as snug a fit to the screen as with other screen guards. The whole case is also a little tricky to take off, but we can't complain too much when it offers this much protection at such a low price.
