Thin, lightweight, futuristic-looking with high impact protection, the Tech 21 D30 case knows what’s up. With raised bezels to protect the screen from face-first falls, and solid construction around the back and edges, this minimalist case shouldn’t be overlooked.

These cases really look great and offer some interesting protection over other rubber cases. The TPU material used, while more rigid than silicone, still remains flexible and is less susceptible to tears and cuts than its counterpart. It’s shock absorbent, shatterproof and scratch resistant, while looking very cool, if you’ll pardon the pun. A fantastic option which can be found on Amazon for around 30 USD.

PureGear Retro Game Case: best old school case

I just have to talk about this case. While I can’t attest to its shock absorption ability, or its ergonomic design. I can’t make any claims that the grip is secure or necessarily comfortable. I can’t say, with any gravitas, that the layered materials amount to a durable design. But what I can tell you, is that it has a maze game on the reverse. Yes, a maze game. You can find the PureGear Retro in a few designs, ranging from between 10 and 20 USD.

Aokdis hard case: most creative
