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.

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.

 

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.

It's not going to work well with wireless charging, though, so it's worth keeping that in mind.

 

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, 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.

 

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.

 

Picadilly for iPhone X

Here's a good option if you're looking for top-notch protection with minimal impact on the design. It's completely transparent, with D30 technology that Gear4 says is the thinnest, most advanced impact protection material in the world.

It is also available with rose gold or black edges for a touch of colour.

 

Windsor Case 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 fror 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.

 

Olixar FlexiCover for iPhone X

This one is quite unusual and we’ve yet to try it ourselves for our final verdict, but at £12.99 it looks like it’s well-worth a try.

Instead of needing a screen protector, the FlexiCover has a front and back portion that are both like a normal gel case, fitting perfectly to the shape of the phone for light, slim protection that’s also transparent to allow the design of the iPhone X to shine through.

It’s not going to provide much protection from serious falls as it’s very thin, but it should stop your iPhone from getting scratches or small dents.

 

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 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

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

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.

 

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.
