You wouldn’t walk around naked, so why should your smartphone?
Considering the knocks, bumps and scratches our phones have to put up with – especially after paying a fortune for them – it makes sense to invest in a case.
Whether you’re using the latest iPhone 14 Pro, Google Pixel 7 Pro or a much-loved older device, there are plenty of awesome cases out there to choose from.
These little phone protectors can be bold or understated, and many have extra features – like a built-in kickstand.
We’ve rounded up a few of our favourites below. But, if you think we’ve missed a corker – you can let us know in the comments box below.
Here’s our pick of the best phone cases you can buy right now.

How can you push the iPhone 14 Pro Max to the max? By adding a tech21 Evo Max case to the mix.
One of our recurring favourite cases, the tough shell from tech21 comes with a load of awesome rugged features. For starters, the case has 20-foot drop protection to keep any expensive iPhone from getting smashed if you accidentally let it fall.
There’s also a nifty slide-over cover to protect the camera lens and a bundled holster that can double up as a kickstand.
The case is compatible with Apple’s MagSafe technology meaning that magnets are incorporated into the design of the case to allow seamless connection with chargers and accessories.
Mous Limitless iPhone 5.0 case – £50

Established case-maker Mous has crafted this excellent armour for the new iPhone line-up with floating buttons for easier use, ridged edges for a confident grip, and a microfibre lining to protect the glass back.
A raised ridge around the camera ensures the phone lens is fully protected, while impact absorbing ‘AiroShock’ technology means the iPhone is safe from bumps, scrapes, and drops.
And there’s also a couple of lanyard connections to enable compatibility with phone slings. There are versions available for either the iPhone 14 or the iPhone 14 Pro models.
Atom Studios Samsung Galaxy S22 Touch Silicone case – £34.99

If you’re a user of Samsung’s latest and greatest S22 smartphone, this understated case is an excellent choice.
Created by London-based brand Atom Studios, the case is slim and unobtrusive but still offers decent protection. There’s an enclosed base for extra defence and a 1mm raised edge to protect the screen.
The silicone casing is soft to the touch and there’s a microfibre lining on the inside for a little extra cushioning.

As wonderful as Google’s new Pixel 7 smartphone is (and you can read the review of the Pro model here) it is a touch on the slippy side.
Thankfully, renowned casemaker Bellroy has arrived with this luxe leather offering. No longer will you hear a distressing thunk as your phone slides off the desk next to you.
Available in a choice of six different colours, the case is made from seamless, edge-to-edge premium leather. What’s more, it was developed in partnership with Google so you know for a fact the dimensions will fit the phone perfectly.
The super slim profile means you won’t have any extra bulk in your pocket and the Pixel 7 can still be wirelessly charged.
Like any premium leather product, this case will actually get better as it ages. Which, in an era of quick replacements and fast fashion, is exactly what we want to hear.
