The iPhone X is an expensive smartphone covered in glass—it might survive a tumble onto a carpet, but if your case-less new phone meets the sidewalk, you're probably going to walk away with a splintered screen.

Due to the wide selection of different smartphone case styles, we were reticent to crown an overall best choice, but we did find the Silk Wallet Slayer Vol. 2 to be the best wallet-style option, and our pick for the best slim case is the Caseology Parallax.

Editor's Note

The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.

Best Wallet-Style Case
Silk Wallet Slayer Vol. 2

The Wallet Slayer from Silk is part-phone case, part-card-holder, and despite Silk's gratingly cheeky marketing copy ("Netflix and chill" is a phrase I never want to hear uttered again), the Wallet Slayer does a great job protecting your iPhone X while holding your cash and cards.

The card slot—which takes up most of the case's back—is made from a surprisingly soft, flexible plastic. The remainder of the case is comprised of a stiffer plastic for drop protection, and the case's edges feature a rough texture, which makes it easy to grip.

Even though the Wallet Slayer case isn't spacious or functional enough to replace my actual wallet, I still find it to be convenient for subway passes, cash, or security cards. Plus, the case feels sturdy enough to guard against short-distance drops.

The Wallet Slayer comes in three stylish color options—Black Onyx, Blue Jade, and Crimson Red— and will set you back about $24 via Amazon. It's not the most affordable case out there, but it's good-looking and multifunctional.

Pros

  • Soft and flexible

  • Easy to grip

  • Sturdy enough for drop protection

Cons

  • Not spacious enough to replace a wallet

Best Slim Case
Caseology Parallax

The Caseology Parallax is a dual-layer case with a simple, aesthetically pleasing design. It's available in several different two-tone options (though we picked up the black and gray version to match our iPhone X).

The Caseology Parallax is slim, making it a great fit for the already slim iPhone X. In terms of durability, the case's stiff frame should offer moderate protection for short falls, but it probably isn't a good fit for a rugged, off-road lifestyle.

Customer reviews of the Parallax are generally positive, though a small percentage of people note that their case did not last as long as they would've liked. If you're in the market for a slim, basic case that offers moderate protection at a decent price, the Parallax series is available on Amazon for around $18. At that price, it's hard to beat.

Pros

  • Elegant patterned design

  • Available in several two-tone color schemes

  • Offers moderate protection

Cons

  • Not built to withstand a lot of wear and tear

Other iPhone X Cases We Tested

Product image of Under Armour Protect Grip iPhone X Case
Under Armour Protect Grip

This single-layer case from Under Armour is sturdier than most of the one-piece cases we tried out, which makes it a decent option for anyone looking for a moderate level of protection without the bulk that comes with modular cases.

The back of the Under Armour case is stiff and not as grippy as a traditional silicone case, but there are raised ridges on the side of the case that deliver a graspable texture where it matters.

Ultimately, it's difficult to recommend the Under Armour grip case for anyone who isn't infatuated with the Under Armour brand to begin with. You could certainly do worse, but the $40 asking price on Amazon is steep for what you're getting here.

Pros

  • Extra sturdy

  • Textured sides

Cons

  • None that we could find

Product image of Supcase Unicorn Beetle iPhone X Case
Supcase Unicorn Beetle

The Supcase Unicorn Beetle case is a transparent, single-layer case with rubber bumpers lining the edges.

One major issue with the Unicorn Beetle case are its buttons, which take the form of marked spots on the edges where there's less resistance in the rubber, rather than actual, elevated buttons. This makes your iPhone's volume and power buttons difficult to press, which puts it at a slight disadvantage compared to some of its contemporaries.

Still, at just $11 on Amazon, you might be willing to put up with a less-than-ideal button situation. The Beetle Unicorn isn't the most attractive case in the game, but it's affordable and feels sturdy enough to protect your iPhone from minor mishaps.

All versions of the Supcase Unicorn Beetle feature a transparent back with bumpers that come in your choice of black, navy, pink, green, or violet.

Pros

  • Rubber bumpers around the edges

Cons

  • Can make buttons difficult to press

Apple Leather Case

Apple's signature, one-piece leather iPhone X case comes in eight or nine colors depending on your retailer, and definitely plays the part of a premium case with gusto. Unfortunately, you can also say the same about its price tag.

To be clear, this leather case isn't an investment in security. You're paying more for its stylish, iconic look than you are for its ability to protect your iPhone from dangerous drops. It excels at two things: protecting the back of your iPhone from scratches and looking good.

A note on the leather: You can expect to see some immediate, noticeable wear-and-tear in the form of scratches. Like any genuine leather product, the surface will smoothen out and darken over time, but you'll have to put up with a break-in period.

Right now, this leather iPhone case from Apple is about $37 to $49 on Amazon. The price tag isn't indicative of quality so much as it is a result of being a first-party Apple product. If you've used and enjoyed variations of this case in the past, you'll probably love this one, too. However, if you're at all skittish about handing over close to $50 for a simple, leather case, you might want to consider alternatives.

Pros

  • Comes in a variety of colors

  • Soft European leather

Cons

  • Easy to scratch

  • Pretty slippery
