The best cases for the Sony Xperia X

Sony’s latest flagship smartphone is the Xperia X, which replaces the Z series of phones for the company. The X is simple, sleek and oh-so breakable, as with most smartphones. Here are the best cases to avoid that heart sinking moment after you inevitably drop it.

Cadorabo Flip Style Sony Xperia Case

This case is a full cover flip design, but best for those who don’t want the bulkier wallet option. There’s no space for your cards here.

It comes in a range of colours to match your handset of choice and has a soft faux leather lining to stop that pristine screen from picking up ungainly scratches.

This case is a full cover flip design, but best for those who don’t want the bulkier wallet option. There’s no space for your cards here.

It comes in a range of colours to match your handset of choice and has a soft faux leather lining to stop that pristine screen from picking up ungainly scratches.

Sony Style Cover Touch

This case from Sony for the Xperia X is really cool – you can use apps even while it’s closed. Most cases like this have limited functionality when closed but here you can use everything as normal with full, branded protection.

Ringke Fusion Crystal Clear Xperia X Case

Clean, simple, functional, cheap. The big four. Get them all here for well under £10. Ringke's clear bumper case keeps your Xperia X protected from scratches and drops with its military grade polycarbonate back and shock absorbent TPU. This case also has dust caps to keep your ports and audio jacks clean.

You can even customize this case with the DIY template included.

Tech21 Evo Wallet Case for Sony Xperia X

This case manages to offer maximum protection for the glass-backed Xperia X while looking slick and slim.

The fastening is a clever magnetic strip that folds around the back of the device and keeps the screen safe from scratches. There's also room for one credit card or travel card, and the rubber bumper around the edges still allows access to the thumb print scanner.

Olixar ArmourDillo Protective Case

This is a truly hardwearing case. Olixar’s ArmourDillo range, no prizes for guessing, are plated style protection for many gadgets and Xperia X is the latest to get the treatment. 

We really like the subtle addition of a little plastic stand on the back for landscape video watching – and it’s in two parts, so you can actually remove the entire hard plastic back and still have a rubberised inner shell. Great stuff.

Caseable pouch

Caseable is a great company that offers accessories in a plethora of great, colourful designs. There’s even the option to create your own designs on any of their products.

This pouch for the Xperia X is really smart and you can be as subtle or as vibrant as you want with the customisable options. We quite like this flamingo design, but the choice is really yours.

Case-Mate Barely There

As the name suggest, this case is very slight while still offering great cover for your Sony Xperia X.

It’s clear, not black as the picture may look, so if you’ve got the white, gold or green Xperia X, this won’t dull down your handset. Its corners are slightly prominent and rounded to prevent major damage if and when dropped.

J&D Heavy Duty Xperia X Case

Another rugged, protective case for the Xperia X is this option from J&D. US visitors can find a nearly identical case from Cocomii

J&D promises shock proof and scratch resistant protection for your device with its silicone and polycarbonate exterior. Like the ArmourDillo, this case also has a convenient stand so you can prop up your device.

This case is available in red, blue and black. 

Snakehive Leather Wallet for Sony Xperia X

For those after a classy look, then this affordable Snakehive wallet is a good bet.

Made from full grain cowhide nubuck leather and secured with a magnetic tab. There's full access to all ports and the camera and even space for three cards.

The Snakehive is available in Navy, Plum, Burgundy (pictured), Black, and Chestnut Brown.
