Apple has recently launched the second generation of the iPhone SE. The device shares its body with the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 8 and thus, all the existing cases for both the iPhones fit perfectly to the new iPhone SE as well. We have created a list of the best cases for your iPhone, whether it be iPhone 7, iPhone 8, or the iPhone SE. Let’s check out each case and find out what suits you the best!
List of Best iPhone SE, iPhone 8 & iPhone 7 Cases
1. OtterBox Strada
The OtterBox Strada is a premium leather case for the iPhone 7 and 8. It’s a folio case that protects your phone from both the front and the back. The dual-materials used in this case provide maximum protection against drops, bumps, scratches, and scrapes. The overall feel is very premium. There’s also a convenient slot for a bank or ID card on the left side of the case when you open it. OtterBox gives you a 1-year warranty with this case.
2. Spigen Tough Armor
The Tough Armor from Spigen ensures that your phone gets no damage after falling down. The dual layers ensure all-round protection from both the front and the back. The case is form-fitted and ergonomic for a strong grip and is pocket-friendly as well. The case is compatible with both the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 8. It also supports wireless charging for the latter. There’s also a built-in stand at the back which you can use while viewing videos and more.
3. Apple Smart Battery Case
Perhaps the biggest problem of the iPhone 7 is its small battery capacity. Well, Apple has a solution for that as well. The smart battery case from Apple claims to increase talk time up to 26 hours, Internet use up to 22 hours on LTE, and even longer audio and video playback. The battery case isn’t of the great things designed from Apple, but it does its job pretty well. Unfortunately, the smart battery case isn’t compatible with the iPhone 8. So if you have the latter, please don’t get this option for your device.
4. UAG Plasma
If you are looking for a solid and rugged case for your iPhone 7 or the iPhone 8 which even has a glass back, the UAG Plasma is the perfect choice for you. It has got a solid form factor that can protect your iPhone from all sorts of accidental drops. The armor shell and impact resistant soft core make sure your phone always remains protected. The scratch-resistant skid pads and screen surround gives all-round protection. The case also has got oversized tactile buttons & easy access to touchscreen and ports. The case is not only compatible with both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, but even with the iPhone 6 and 6s.
5. Otterbox uniVERSE Case
The Otterbox uniVERSE case is perhaps the most unique case on this list. It not only protects your phone but also has a section where different kinds of modules can be attached. The uniVERSE case turns your iPhone into a pro camera, modern register, backup battery and more. You can swap out modules according to your needs. It kind of makes your iPhone like Google’s Project Ara. The case is made up of synthetic rubber on the inside and hard polycarbonate on the outside. It is also compatible with wireless chargers.
6. Vesel Wood Series – Wood & Aluminum
For those who are looking for a rather premium case, Vesel’s wood series might be the best. The case gives you a luxurious feel whenever you hold your iPhone. This case, in particular, combines wood and aluminium which gives you a great rugged feel. The case is attached to your iPhone using screws! Vesel boasts that they use premium quality, oil-finished wood along with 7075 aluminium to ensure the high standard.
7. Caseology Wavelength
Wavelength by Caseology is a minimal but functionally designed case that protects your iPhone from all sides. It comes with shock-absorbing design, high-quality build, and dual-layer protection. The phone case made with dual-layer TPU & PC materials for twice the shock protection. There’s also textured cover with 3D geometric design for enhanced grip and increased shock absorption. The case is compatible with Apple-certified wireless chargers for iPhone 8.
8. mophie Juice Pack Wireless
Mophie’s Juice Pack Wireless is perfect for those who want to get the most of their iPhones. The case includes a 2,420 mAh battery which provides a lot of juice to your iPhone. The LED indicator on the back lets you know how much charge is left on the case. The case is not just for charging, it is quite protective as well. The light-weight case features rubberized support pads on the interior for drops and hard falls, and raised corners for added protection against cracked screens. It is also compatible with Qi Wireless chargers so you can easily charge your iPhone SE / 8 with the case on and it will charge both the case and your iPhone.
9. Spigen Slim Armor CS
Another case from Spigen, this one makes your credit card storage a little easy, along with protecting your iPhone. The screen and camera portion is slightly lifted, so that it protects your phone from direct fall. The card slot on the back can store up to 2 cards while maintaining its slim profile. Spigen says that the volume controls and the power button on the case are very tactile and give you a great feedback. The case is made up of shock-absorbing TPU on the interior and the exterior consists of polycarbonate material.
10. Casetify Clear iPhone Case
Last but not the least, here’s a clear case from Casetify. Because sometimes, you really do want to flaunt that iPhone color of yours and a clear case is perhaps the best way to do that. The case is definitely protective and also features a slightly pink hue along the edges. The case is not like other plastic / TPU clear cases and doesn’t feel cheap. Instead, it is not slippery and has got a nice grip on it. The camera area is also slightly raised above to give you that last level of protection.
So here was the list of the Top 10 cases for iPhone 7, 8 and SE. The list consists of multiple kinds of cases, including clear ones, luxurious, grippy, battery packs and super protective ones as well. Personally, our favorite case is the Otterbox uniVERSE Case, as it has got space for modules where different kinds of accessories can be attached. Also, the mophie Juice Pack Wireless is our second favorite on the list as it doubles the battery life of your iPhone and unlocks the full potential so that you can easily take your iPhone out during trips and forget about a charger.
