When hunting for a new phone case, there are various factors to consider—price, texture, aesthetic, durability, additional features, and peace of mind, to name a few. Many phone case brands in the market tote special features like a wallet attachment, a battery pack attached to charge your phone, and waterproof capabilities. Whether it is name-brand phone cases like Otterbox or boutique phone cases like Huawei Cases, those of us who use our phones every day are looking for the best bang for our buck. We want a case that is worth purchasing. Below are the top four best phone case brands to keep an eye out for when buying your next case!
Spigen is a fan-favorite brand of cases because they are dependable while remaining affordable. A Spigen case is also well known for its variety—slim, armored, or hybrid; this is a case brand that has whatever you need. Whether you have a Galaxy Note, an iPhone 12, or a Google phone, a Spigen case is available in nearly every phone carrier. Chances are, while you are buying your phone, you will be able to purchase a Spigen case there.
If you are in the mood for some glam, check out the Spigen Liquid Crystal Glitter case or the Spigen Rugged Armor case for more resilient shock absorption—both cases are thin, attractive, and lightweight. Usually, these phone cases would be upward of $40 if a different brand produced them, but you could purchase both of them together for under $30!
OtterBox has been a staple brand for nearly as long as the smartphone itself. It is the “go-to” phone case that guarantees to keep your phone safe, with many series’ (like the commander series, the defender series, or commuter series) to fit your phone case needs. OtterBox cases tend to be on the bulkier side because the brand prioritizes heavy-duty protection over design. However, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on attractiveness over safety because OtterBox has a wide array of cases to choose from. Each OtterBox case comes with dual protection to keep your phone safe from debris, water damage, accidental bumps, and especially drops.
Compared to Spigen, OtterBox is on the more expensive side of the phone case spectrum. Often these cases will range from $30 to $80 depending on where you purchase them from—and if it is a certified OtterBox case.
Unlike OtterBox’s bulkier Defend Series design or Under Armor Gear’s cases, Speck offers a slimmer option without skimping on the protection. However, their Presidio Grip case is an affordable option for someone looking for a case that will reduce their slippage chance. The Speck Presidio Grip case also comes manufactured with anti-microbial technology that kills 99% of bacteria residing on your phone. During a global pandemic, this seems like a relatively attractive option, doesn’t it?
When choosing your phone case, if you are doing so online as many of us do, take a glance at what people are saying about your desired case and the brand. Do the reviews seem trustworthy? Are negative comments being hidden or deleted? There could be some circumstances where one brand’s case could have 3,000 reviews while a different brand has 600 reviews—don’t let this deter you!
