Check out Engadget’s take on the best iPhone cases …
A good case is a wise investment for your iPhone. Even the least expensive iPhone is pricey, and the right case will offer protection against scratches, dings, and cracks—and allow you to personalize your phone—without adding much extra bulk or changing how you use your phone. We’ve tested hundreds of cases for every iPhone back to the iPhone 5, and we think the Silk Base Grip (available for iPhone X, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8 models) is the best case for current iPhones, offering solid everyday protection at a low price. But we have recommendations for older phones, too.
Who this is for: People who want a slim, protective, and affordable iPhone X case.
Why we like it: After testing almost 70 cases for the iPhone X, we think the best case to protect that huge investment is the Silk Base Grip. This sleek case will help protect phones against damage from everyday life—to get more protection, you’d have to use a much bulkier case. The flexible plastic material offers more grip than a bare phone, and the raised lip around the screen is tall enough to help protect the glass from drops. And the Base Grip is very affordable.
Flaws but not dealbreakers: The Silk Base Grip is a rather plain case with a relatively limited selection of solid color choices. It’s not the best pick for someone seeking a unique look.
We also have picks for other types of cases, including leather cases, waterproof options, and more in our full review of the best iPhone X cases.
