A classic Apple design, the Silicon Case combines protection for your iPhone X and comfort for the user. The device rests on a soft microfibre lining with a protective silicone exterior.

Though the slightly raised edges offer some protection to the front screen, an additional screen protector is recommended for optimal safeguarding.

The Silicone Case also complements the iPhone X nicely as it's compatible for wireless charging.

You can purchase the Apple Silicone case for £39 directly from Apple. Apple also offers a selection of nine different colours, so you’re sure to find one that you like.

Apple iPhone X Leather Case

The iPhone X Leather Case offers a French leather finish with a natural patina that develops over time.

With a snug fit that’s similar to Apple’s Silicone Case, the microfibre lining provides a soft interior in addition to the leather shell.

The iPhone X Leather Case also comes in nine colours and is compatible with wireless charging. You can buy this case from Apple for £49.

Apple iPhone X Leather Folio

The last (and most expensive) of Apple’s collection of iPhone X cases is the iPhone X Leather Folio. This case provides the luxurious look and feel of the iPhone X Leather case in addition to a protective flap and space for exterior storage.

Opening and closing the case activates your iPhone X and puts it to sleep.

Lastly, storage on the back of the case eliminates the need for users to carry a wallet, leaving space for bank cards, receipts and etc.

Ted Baker for iPhone X

We love Ted Baker's cases for iPhone X, particularly this Shannon Mirror Folio case, which protects the front and back of the iPhone and also has a handy mirror in the inside cover.

The Ted Baker cases are well priced, too, with shell cases available for £29.95 and folio cases for up to £39.95.

Vision Series for iPhone X

The Vision Series by Snugg has a slim and lightweight design for protection without the bulk. A TPU shell coupled with strengthened bumpers acts as a shock-absorbing shield to protect against unprecedented impact.

Raised bezels also offer some protection to the front display of your iPhone.

The Vision Series is available to purchase in a range of colours from Amazon.

All of Snugg’s phone cases come with a lifetime guarantee policy, so if you ever have an issue with one of the cases, Snugg will repair or replace it.

Pulse Series

Similar to the Vision Series by Snugg, the Pulse Series also has a flexible silicone TPU shell that enfolds your iPhone X.

However, the Pulse Series has a rippled pattern with with inner air-pockets and a polycarbonate bumper for maximum grip and shock absorption.

All Pulse Series come in a matte finish with Snugg’s signature ‘S’ ergonomic contour. Choose from a variety of colours on Amazon for £12.99.

Infinity Series

What separates the Infinity Series by Snugg from the Pulse and Vision Series is a polycarbonate exterior. This interchangeable back piece acts as a more durable shield when faced with shock.

It also maintains a slim and lightweight design that combines style and functionality.

The Infinity Series case comes in six colours and is available on Amazon for £12.99.

Proporta Carbon Series

Another great option comes from Proporta, which offers several cases including the Carbon-fibre case for iPhone X. It's thin, light and durable, and allows access to all ports and buttons.

Picadilly for iPhone X

If you’re looking for a case that displays your iPhone and offers great protection, the transparent Piccadilly is a good fit.

According to Gear4, D3O technology allows their cases to have the thinnest yet most advanced impact protection on the market.

You can purchase this case from Gear4 with clear, rose gold or black edges.

Windsor for iPhone X

Drop tested at 3 metres, the Windsor by Gear4 provides D3O Impact Protection with a slim, elegant design.

This case has a frosted back plate with a clear panel, and the bumper colour is available in rose gold or black.

Buy directly from Gear4 for £29.99.

Mujjo Full Leather iPhone X

Mujjo has completely redesigned their selection of Leather Cases using a new in-mould production process.

Each Leather Case is wrapped entirely in premium full-grain leather. The case fits securely around the iPhone X with the purpose of accentuating the device rather than concealing or adding bulk.

The leather raises 1mm above the edge of the glass, resulting in a raised bezel that keeps your screen scratch-free.

Snakehive iPhone X Collections

Snakehive has a wide variety of cases available for iPhone X, with collections including the Pastel Collection, Wilderness Wood Collection, Slimline Wallet Collection and the Vintage Collection.

From the Vintage Collection comes this Vintage Plum folio case, with protection for the front, back and sides of the case as well as a magnetic clasp for extra security. The case doubles as a stand, too.

Blake Folio for iPhone X

A hybrid of deluxe leather and ultra-soft Alcantara suede, the Folio by Greenwich offers a quality design for Apple’s most sophisticated iPhone yet.

And did we mention it’s shotgun tested?

Each Greenwich case has a carbon-fine lining for the ultimate protection against shock. 

Also includes an interior card slot.

Horo Leather

Another Greenwich case, the Horo Leather Folio Case includes an updated, hard-wearing shell that acts as a protective shield.

The sleek leather design crafted with quality leather is the perfect combination of sophistication and functionality, all without additional bulk.

Pizza Emoji Case for iPhone X

Famous for their emoji-decorated cases, Call Candy has unveiled this crafty UV printed pizza case.

With a slim and flexible design, the Mamma Mia Pizza Emoji Case provides protection and comfort with a slim design.

It fits around the iPhone X nicely while adding a bit of fun in comparison to other cases. You can find this case on Case Hut.

Nodus Acccess Case for iPhone X

Never lose your iPhone X out of its case again with the Nodus Access Case.

Using a micro suction pad, the Access Case grips your device securely to the interior.

A vacuum effect holds your phone in place due to a million microscopic suction cups that can be removed and reset a number of times without loss of suction or residual glue. 

The exterior of the Access Case is finished in a stylish Italian leather folio and has an internal pocket for bank cards or money.

Griffin Survivor for iPhone X

Looking for the ultimate protection for your iPhone X?

The Survivor Extreme by Griffin can withstand impact from up to 3 metres and is enclosed in a IP55-rated sealed shell to protect against all elements.

The Supreme Extreme may not be the prettiest, but it does come in black, blue, black/red and black/grey and should keep your shiny new phone safe.

Olixar-X Ranger iPhone X Survival Case

Prepare your iPhone X to withstand all elements with the Olixar-Ranger iPhone X Survival Case from Mobile Fun.

In addition to drop protection and a non-slip grip, the Survival Case comes with a kickstand and multi-functioning lifesaver tool with 26 functions, including a ruler, knife, screwdriver and bottle opener.

Forget your fears of cracking your iPhone X, being unable to tighten a lose bolt or leave a bottled beer behind - the Olixar-Ranger Survival Case has got you covered.

Speck Presidio for iPhone X

Built to withstand 3m/10ft drops, Speck's line of Presidio cases feel just as sturdy and solid as they claim to be, with a multi-layer design and ridged bumpers, but without sacrificing the way your phone looks.

We've picked out the standard Presidio case, but head to Speck's site to check out the full range of colours and finishes, including the even more protective Presidio Ultra, which includes an additional bumper and supportive holster.

Tech21 Evo Tactical for iPhone X

When it comes to non-leather cases protection is usually the priority, but we love the look of the Evo Tactical from Tech21, which features a subtle angular motif on the rear.

It doesn't get in the way of the drop protection features you'd expect, while the tactile grip means you're that little bit less likely to drop it in the first place.

Pad & Quill Bella Fino Wallet for iPhone X

This wallet case from Pad & Quill is made of American leather, and both looks and feels fantastic. There's a choice of three different exterior leather colours, which determine which of three contrasting interior finishes you can have.

There are slots for a few cards, but there's no clasp to keep the case shut. You can either attach your phone using the included adhesive, or use the optional snap-on case. Oh, and don't worry about the US pricing - they ship to the UK too.

Skinit iPhone X Skin

Skinit's iPhone X skins are definitely not for anyone looking to add serious protection to their phone, but are ideal for anyone who just wants some visual flair.

The adhesive skins cover range from simple patterns to comic designs, sports teams, and art prints, and some even have a textured finish.

Caudabe Synthesis iPhone X Case

Synthesis is Caudabe's toughest iPhone X case, boasting 3m/9.8ft of tested drop protection thanks to a combo of a flexible polymer bumper and a rigid back shell - a design in common with most of our favourite tough cases.

It comes in a few colours, but our favourite is the black variant with a transparent rear - and don't worry about the US pricing, it ships internationally for just $5 extra.

Element Roll Cage iPhone X Case

There are plenty of heavy-duty protective cases out there, usually with garish colours and complicated designs, but Element's Roll Cage stands out from the pack with a design inspired by race car tech.

That's because the 'cage' is not only detachable, but can be attached to either the rear of the case or the front, adding serious screen protection when you know you won't be using the phone for a while.
