Eight of the most beautiful cases for your iPhone X
So, have you got your iPhone X yet? Of course you have, it’s been out nearly a month, so there’s no need to put one on your list for Santa this year. Of course, that does leave open the question of what you do want to find under the tree this 25th of December. Well, for one thing, a great phone deserves great accessories. You’ve got the luxury phone, now you need a case to hold it in; after all, you wouldn’t make a Samoyed puppy sleep in a broom cupboard, would you?
Let’s run down our list, then, of the finest and most exclusive iPhone X covers – which one will be in your stocking this Christmas?
1. Blake Folio in Damson with Gold electroplating: £129
Although this sumptuous little shell is also available in black, beige and grey, those versions will be everywhere this holiday season, so go for something a little more regal instead. With deluxe German leather and Alcantara suede, you literally won’t want to put your phone down, even when you’ve played with every app you can find.
2. Apple iPhone X Leather Folio: £99
If people don’t know you have an iPhone, do you really have an iPhone? Fortunately, you don’t need to worry about such philosophical questions, as you can keep your phone safe and show the Apple logo off with this case. As well as the look, this folio phone holder performs a neat trick; the case wakes the phone when you open it, and puts it back to sleep when you close it.
3. Presido Ultra: £49
£50 is cheap compared to most of the cases on this list, but when the case is this handsome and minimal, it’s tough to overlook it. It comes with a removable rubber bumper which allows the phone to survive a 4.5 metre drop; so you could drop it out a first-floor window in shock if your free bets don’t come off, and it’ll still survive to serve you well.
4. Louis Vuitton Folio: £210
If you want to carry your X in style, then this may be your best option. In rich brown, with the iconic LV monogram picked out in gold, this is the most luxurious iPhone X case of them all. It’s practical, too– an adhesive backing means that even if your fingers fail you, your phone will stay nestled safely inside its case.
5. Pad And Quill Heritage Pocket Book Wallet Case: $119.95
If you want this glorious, chic case you’ll need to buy one from America, as they’re not on the UK market as yet. With leather coating over a wooden frame, it’s as sturdy as it is luxurious. Plus it doubles as a wallet, with room for up to seven cards and a windowed section for photo ID inside!
6. Noreve Saint Tropez Leather Case: Up To £110
The name in French luxury phone accessories, Noreve have released this beautiful sleek leather cover in a range of finishes including their durable and opulent Saffiano leather. Made by skilled craftsmen, this is a case not everyone will have, but which everyone will want when they see it. This is what phones would be wearing on the catwalks in 2018, if phones could walk.
7. Waterfield Ranger iPhone X Case: From £65
As the name suggests, this is a case you can take with you if you’re braving rough terrain or heavy weather, and still want to look stylish. Covered in full-grain leather, which will age beautifully, and with an ultrasuede interior which will keep your screen clean as well as safe, it’s the perfect iPhone for an active life, and it’ll clip to your belt when you need it to.
8. Grovemade Minimalist Tough Case: £75
Can there be beauty in strength? There can when you’re shopping for a new iPhone case, as this sturdy handmade effort shows. Available in a range of finishes including maple, walnut and leather, it will stand up to some rough treatment and still look refined and elegant. Well worth £75 of anyone’s money, it will last and last; the next time you’ll need to buy a new one will be when the next iPhone comes out.
These are just eight of the luxurious, gorgeous, hard-wearing and hand-crafted options on the market for Apple’s latest smart phone. Whichever one you pick you can feel confident it will turn heads well into the New Year. In fact, with cases this good on offer, why wait for Christmas Day? Treat yourself, and your phone, to the case you deserve.
