1. An iPhone case with slits for your cards, cash, and ID for those fuss-free days. Sometimes you don't want to carry a wallet or a huge purse, and shouldn't have to.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "I love it! It provides great protection for my very expensive phone (I've already dropped it on the street, oops!), but no worries. It's totally safe! The case is fantastic for your essential cards and pocket cash. I find that I can leave my heavy purse in the car and just pack this on my wrist." –Julie Bonner

Price: $7.99 (compatible with the iPhone 7).

2. A delightful and dainty floral-patterned iPhone case.

Promising Review: "I am absolutely in love with this case. The design on the back looks just like the picture and it has a thick, durable case so if I were to drop it, the case would hit the floor and not the screen. It also comes with a plastic screen protector!" –Amazon CustomerPrice: $9.99 (compatible with the iPhone 7).

3. This shock-proof case that's able to endure multiple tumbles while keeping your phone cozy and crack-free. I wouldn't go dropping it off a building, though. Sounds risky.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "I ordered the purple case because I loved the deep royal purple shown in the picture. It snapped together easily and seems like a really sturdy case. The case should help protect the screen because it comes up over the sides." –Bethany Maddox

Price: $9.99 (compatible with the Galaxy S8).

4. A fancy transparent case with a dainty design worthy of your phone.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "Cute cover! I like that it is clear and shows the color of my phone, but adds a pattern on it. The corners are raised so that when the cell phone is lying face down, the screen does not touch the surface. I like my phone placed face down at night (less blinking), and this way it won't scratch. The sides do not come up as high as the corners, which helps you to see the edges of the curved S8." –Michelle Hayes

Price: $9.99 (compatible with the Galaxy S8).

5. A clear case—ideal for showing off your phone's true identity.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "I love this case! It is crystal clear and really shows off my jet-black iPhone 7 nicely. I really like how it fits snugly and is really thin. I've had clear cases before, but this seems more solid. All the buttons and cutouts are perfect, and the lines on the mold highlight the sleekness of my phone." –LikesAmazonStuff

Price: $7.99 (compatible with the iPhone 7).

6. Our friend Totoro. He's completely prepared to protect any iPhone you leave in his charge.

Promising Review: "I am so in love with this. I knew it would be big, but it really is HUGE!

It's certainly a conversation piece!" –Amazon Customer Price: $9.95 (also available in pink or chocolate, compatible with the iPhone 6 Plus).

7. A sleek, sexy matte case that gives off minimalist vibes.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "The case is flexible and easy to put on and take off, but holds tightly to the phone so it won't come off accidentally. It is scratch-resistant and has some friction, making it easier to hold the phone and keep it from slipping out of your hand. The corners of the phone are also protected by the case." –Careful Buyer

Price: $9.99 (compatible with the Galaxy S8 Plus).

8. An Optimus Prime case. Seems pretty fitting that he would protect your phone from sudden death. Robots in disguise.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "It is very slim and adds virtually no bulk to my phone. The outside edges are a matte black silicone-type material that is easy to hang on to. The back is a clear, glossy hard plastic with a colored band around the edges. I like this case because it reduces the slipperiness of my iPhone, yet does not add bulk to it. It also doesn't hinder any access to any of the ports for charging and headphones." –CDD3D

Price: $6.99 (compatible with the iPhone 6 and 6s).

15. This camera case for fooling everyone into thinking that you've got a hobby in photography. You do take awesome selfies, so they're not totally wrong.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I'm a photographer by profession, and this case is just so cute I had to get it. I get so many compliments on it. An added benefit that is the strap! I don't have to worry about whether my phone fits in my pocket or HAVE to carry my purse if the phone doesn't fit. I can just use the case strap. When my kids play on my phone, I have them put the strap over their neck so they can't drop it. It's really great!" –Erin N. Ferguson

Price: $9.79 (compatible with the iPhone 6 and 6s).

16. A super rugged and durable iPhone case that comes with a built-in screen protecter.

Expecting it to be crushed and shattered, we pulled off to the side and found the phone to be in perfect condition!" –Amazon Customer

Price: $9.99 (also available in blue or black, compatible with the iPhone 6 Plus).
