Mous Limitless 2.0 Review- Mous Limitless and Rhinoshield SolidSuit

PROS:

  • Very tough
  • Handles quite well
  • Comes with screen protector
  • Modular accessories

CONS: 

  • Slightly bigger than all the other cases on this list

The Mous Limitless 2.0 is probably the most “premium” case on this list. Mous Limitless 2.0 is well-made, tough and the different finishes actually feel part of the case, not just an afterthought. We recently had the opportunity to re-review the Mous Limitless and we took it through a gauntlet of drops ranging from 4 ft to 13 ft and we still have a working iPhone. The 13ft drop took itʼs tool on the camera  but it looks fine physically.

If youʼre planning on getting Mous Limitless 2.0, consider getting some of their accessories. The flip wallet case is the best wallet case we have ever used and it works seamlessly with the Mous Limitless 2.0.

Loopy Case - The Best Cases for the iPhone X

PROS:

  • The most useful case ever
  • Allows you to get the most out of your iPhone
  • The only case that prevents drops 100% of the time if your hand is in the loop

CONS: 

  • Your iPhone ends up having a hump
  • Buttons are a smidge tougher to use

Hands down, Loopy case is the most useful case we have ever used. The Loopy case changes your iPhone from being a device that you worry about dropping and breaking to a device thatʼs easy to use. Honestly, words canʼt describe how useful it is so watch 21 things you definitely canʼt do with any other case except for the Loopy.

#3 Pitaka MagCase Pro

Pitaka MagCase and MagCase Pro Review-- MagCase Pro overall built

PROS:

  • Compatible with magnetic car mounts and Qi-chargers
  • Lots of texture on the case
  • Carbon fibre back

CONS: 

  • Normal face first drop protection (despite claims)

From a handling perspective, the Pitaka MagCase Pro handles almost as good as the Speck Presidio Grip. The main reason why it scores higher than the Speck product is the fact that the magnets on the case allow you to use it with Qi-chargers as well as magnetic car mounts. The Pitaka MagCase Pro  has a carbon fibre back which improves the lock of the case and will not scratch as easily as other carbon fibre cases.

Rhinoshield SolidSuit Review - iPhone 6s

PROS:

  • Lots of different finishes
  • Premium looking case
  • Amazing buttons
  • Can subtly customize the look of your device
  • Extrenal camera lense compatible

CONS: 

  • Doesnʼt handle as well as other cases

RhinoShield SolidSuit is the only case on this list that allows you to mount different, high quality camera lenses onto the case. The RhinoShield SolidSuit is unique in a way that the buttons on the case are customizable. You can add a splash of color with your case setup. Weʼve grown particularly fond of having a grey microfibre case on our iPhone with yellow buttons. It matches our grey Apple Watch with a yellow band.

Presidio CLEAR vs Presidio GRIP - Speck Presidio Clear iPhone 7 Case Review

PROS:

  • Grippy
  • Great handling

CONS: 

  • Donʼt drop it face first from 10 ft

Apart from the Loopy case, the Speck Presidio Grip is going to be the best handling case on this list. However, the case will suffer a noticeable wear and tear issues due to the rubber edges. The Speck Presidio Grip isnʼt too bulky and makes your iPhone feel solid. Just donʼt drop it from 10ft face first onto a sidewalk without a screen protector.

Ghostek Cloak 3 Review

PROS:

  • Unique design
  • Cheap
  • Handles well

CONS: 

  • Minor fit issue at the bottom of the case

If youʼve got a small budget for your case but wanʼt something that doesnʼt look like a generic ripoff, get the Ghostek Cloak 3. Ghostek has done a great job fitting the TPU and PC frame together and added a bit of texture as well to ensure your iPhone doesnʼt fly out of your hand easily. The buttons on the case is metallic as well so it adds a bit of class to this budget friendly case.

Catalyst Impact Protection - The Best Cases for the iPhone X

PROS:

  • Tough
  • Thin
  • Amazing buttons

CONS: 

  • Wide
  • Back will scratch easily

Catalyst Impact Protection is one of the few cases that weʼd feel comfortable dropping our $1000 iPhones from 10 ft. The Catalyst Impact Protection looks like it would handle like a bar of soap but it doesnʼt. We love the buttons on Catalyst Impact Protection, especially the mute switch. The back will scratch a little easier than other cases.

Spigen Tough Armor - The Best Cases for the iPhone X

PROS:

  • Relatively cheap
  • Handles well (if you get the right version)

CONS: 

  • A little boring

The Spigen Tough Armor should be on everyoneʼs list as a go to case if you donʼt know which one to get or you just donʼt really care how the case looks on your device. Weʼve been reviewing them for years and they hold up well. Make sure you get a darker coloured case as the coatings on certain colors will not handle as well.

#9 Spigen Thin Fit 360

QMNP Magnet mount - Spigen Thin Fit 360 iPhone 7 Review

PROS:

  • Relatively cheap
  • Handles well (if you get the right version)
  • Comes with two screen protectors

CONS: 

  • Not as tough as other cases

If youʼre looking for an ultra thin case, go with the Spigen Thin-Fit 360. This case will cover almost your entire iPhone which is great for those worried about general wear and tear across the entire device. The downside is that the case is made only from polycarbonate so it will offer the least drop protection on this list.

If youʼve been to this site before, youʼll know that we really enjoyed using the Spigen Reventon and ProGuard which shared the same design as the Thin-Fit 360 but Spigen isnʼt making those cases for the iPhone XSʼs unfortunately.

#10 Tech 21 Evo Series

Handling - Tech 21 Evo Mesh and Evo Check iPhone 7 Review

PROS:

  • Handles well
  • Several different designs
  • Large corners can handle lots of accidental drops

CONS: 

  • Width of case is noticeable
  • Lower edge lip will not provide as much screen protector as other cases

Tech 21 Evo Series is probably one of the easiest cases to get with your iPhone since the Apple Stores usually have them in stock. The edges of the case have an excellent grip to them but it is wider than the average case. Using the Tech 21 Evo on a larger iPhone like the iPhone XS Max might be difficult for some people with smaller hands. The Tech 21 Evo Series also doesnʼt have a rigid back so the corners may come off the case during a face first drop.

Where are the Otterbox Cases?

Otterbox cases arenʼt bad. In fact, theyʼre quite good. But overall, they just donʼt make the cut. In general, Otterbox cases are bulkier, with tougher buttons and most cases have a slick back. The handling of the iPhone in an Otterbox case just isnʼt as good as any of the cases weʼve listed above.
