What are the best iPhone X.

iPhone X case - the 10 most popular cases tested

1st place & test winner - the ROXX case for the iPhone X

As in the iPhone 7/8 test, the ROXX case came in first again. The case has almost the same materials as the original Apple iPhone X case, which took second place. The big difference between the two cases is the price (19.90 € to 45 €) and the design. The ROXX cover is closed at the bottom and costs less than half the price. The case is velvety soft on the outside, still a hard case and coated on the inside with a kind of microfiber, which protects the back from scratches. The perfect protection and for me again the best case for the iPhone X! In addition, there are now finally other colors that I don't want to withhold from you. I received the pictures directly from ROXX and they have not been edited. The colors really convince here!

2nd place - The original iPhone X silicone case from Apple

Second place goes to the original Apple iPhone X case made of silicone. Here, too, the same perfect materials as with the ROXX cover just opened at the bottom and therefore no perfect protection and all that at a price of 45 €. Probably something for people who absolutely want an Apple logo on the back and want to do without protection.

Price: 45€

advantages

✓ Extremely high quality materials

✓ Great feeling in the hand

✓ Velvety inside

Conclusion - who is this case suitable for?

If there wasn't anything better, I would say that this case is definitely the best, despite various disadvantages and everyone should have one. But there are better ones from ROXX for more than half less and so the only reason to buy this case is the Apple logo on the back.

3rd place - The iPhone X case with a transparent back and frame

3rd place goes to this hard case for the iPhone X with a transparent back and frame. For people who don't want to hide the back of the iPhone X, this is definitely a good option. But you should also note that this case makes the iPhone very thick and that grains of dust and sand between the case and the iPhone act like sandpaper.

Price: 13,99€

advantages

✓ Hard case

✓ Reverse side visible

✓ Looks stable

✓ Arched bulletproof glass possible

disadvantage

✗ Smells like chemistry

✗ Plastic frame

✗ Back not protected from scratches

✗ Makes iPhone X very thick

✗ Accessory plugs may be too thick for lightening connection recess

✗ Possibly poor reception

Conclusion - who is the case suitable for?

If you want good protection and still don't want to cover the back, this cover is well advised. But you have to accept that it makes the iPhone X a lot thicker and if something gets between the case and the iPhone, you can expect a scratched back.

4th place - The iPhone X case from Spigen

4th place goes to the shell of Spigen. Spigen is known for good protection and they can do it again here. The iPhone X is well protected from all sides. Unfortunately, this case makes the whole iPhone quite thick and you have the feeling of having a brick in your hand.

Price: 9,99€

advantages

✓ Very good protection

✓ Goes far beyond the display

✓ Hard case through plastic frame

✓ Buttons are easy to use

✓ Not too slippery

disadvantage

✗ No convex bulletproof glass possible

✗ Makes iPhone X very thick

✗ Recess on camera too big

✗ Thick border reduces the impression of the frameless iPhone X.

✗ A lack of protection on the inside could scratch the back of the iPhone X.

Conclusion - who is the case suitable for?

The Spigen case is more for people who want really good protection and who put less emphasis on the design. But whether there are so many people who buy a smartphone for over 1000 € and then hide the design? Somehow that doesn't make sense.

5th place - the transparent iPhone X case

5th place goes to the transparent silicone case for the iPhone X. In itself, this case is nothing special, but you can see the entire design of the iPhone X through it. Since it is not a hard case, the entire impact of a fall is passed on to the iPhone and unfortunately dust and sand between the iPhone and the case can destroy the entire back of the iPhone.

Price: 5,94€

advantages

✓ Does not cover the design of the iPhone X.

✓ Arched bulletproof glass possible

✓ Not too slippery

✓ Buttons are easy to use

disadvantage

✗ No hard case

✗ Does not go over the display and therefore does not protect it in the event of a fall

✗ Recess on camera too big and unclean

✗ A lack of protection on the inside could scratch the back of the iPhone X.

✗ Magically attracts fingerprints

Conclusion - who is the case suitable for?

If you like it really cheap and still want to see everything from your iPhone X, you can take a look at this case. High quality is something else that you just notice in the camera recess. The biggest problem here is probably the lack of screen protection. Nowadays with such horrendous prices for smartphones an absolute no go.

6th place - the ultra thin iPhone X case

6th place goes to the ultra thin case for the iPhone X. This case is really extremely thin with 0.35mm and you hardly notice it. Everyone can well imagine that protection is neglected here. You really only have a thin layer of plastic around the iPhone X. Any sand. or a speck of dust under the case will scratch the back and since it is not a hard case, you can only keep away scratches in the event of a fall, shocks are passed directly to the iPhone.

Price: 6,29€

advantages

✓ Extremely thin

✓ Camera extension on the back

✓ The case feels good for plastic

✓ Arched bulletproof glass possible

disadvantage

✗ No hard case

✗ Not closed at buttons

✗ A lack of protection on the inside could scratch the back of the iPhone X.

Conclusion - who is this ultra thin case for the iPhone X suitable for?

If you want a very inconspicuous case for your iPhone X, you are well advised to do this. You don't have to complain about the price either. But you shouldn't forget that this is not a hard case and dirt between the case and the iPhone can quickly cause scratches.

7th place - the iPhone X leather sleeve

7th place is occupied by the leather case for the iPhone X. This is of course more for people who would like to have space for cards and money in the case. The good thing about this case is that it naturally protects it very well in the event of a fall, but you don't really want to carry it in your pocket as a man. So this case is more for women who carry their iPhone in their handbag anyway.

Price: 11,99€

advantages

✓ All-round protection

✓ Space for other things

✓ Tempered glass (small) included

disadvantage

✗ Smells like chemistry

✗ Completely open on the buttons, top and bottom

✗ A lack of protection on the inside could scratch the back of the iPhone X.

✗ Hard plastic case, iPhone difficult to remove

✗ If you lose that, not only is the iPhone gone ...

✗ Increasing on credit cards can scratch the display

✗ Over time, leather will not look as beautiful as it did at the beginning

✗ Covers the noise-canceling microphone on the back

✗ Looks much better and of higher quality on the sales picture

Conclusion - who is this case suitable for?

In my opinion, these types of cases are only for women who carry their iPhone in their handbag. The iPhone just becomes extremely thick with such a leather case and I wouldn't want to put it in my trouser pocket anymore.

8th place - the iPhone X 360 degree protection

The 360 ​​degree protection for the iPhone X landed in 8th place. The sense behind such covers is of course even better protection. With an iPhone 7/8 you can perhaps say that, but here only the notch above is covered. There is no protection from e.g. a microfiber coating on the inside.

Price: 7,88€

advantages

✓ Good protection

✓ Hard case

✓ Tempered glass (small) included

✓ Doesn't feel too cheap

✓ Buttons are all easy to use

disadvantage

✗ No convex bulletproof glass possible

✗ Does the construct really hold together in the end?

✗ Case quite thick

Conclusion - who is the case suitable for?

The only advantage of such cases is protection. So you should think twice about whether you really need 360 degree protection and thus have a much thicker iPhone X. For people who often drop their iPhone, this case is probably the right one or you can also use this case as a work case. This case is probably nothing for everyone else, as in my opinion it does not fit a designer smartphone over 1000 €.

9th place - the original iPhone X leather sleeve from Apple

9th place went to the original Apple leather case for the iPhone X. In the last test, this case even took last place, but today one case was even worse. In itself, this case is actually not that bad. It is a hard case and has the same soft inner coating as the Apple silicone case or the ROXX case, but it is open at the bottom. The biggest problem with this case is the vulnerable back and the price of 59 €. If you scratch the back with your fingernail, you will have a bright scratch that will not go away.

Price: 59€

advantages

✓ Hard case

✓ Interior protection

✓ Perfect camera recess

✓ Feels high quality

✓ Arched bulletproof glass possible

✓ Noble packaging

disadvantage

✗ Open at the bottom

✗ Edge of the case too high above the display

✗ Smells like chemistry

✗ Much too high a price

✗ Creases at the corners below

✗ Back extremely susceptible to scratches

Conclusion - who is the case suitable for?

If you want a leather cover that also offers internal protection against scratches, you cannot avoid the Apple cover. But you should consider that you really pay about 30 € surcharge for the Apple logo on the back and you still have no 100% protection.

10th place - the transparent silicone case with frame

Last place is occupied by this silicone case with a colored frame for the iPhone X. These cases look very stylish in themselves, but unfortunately have more disadvantages than advantages. So you have no hardcase protection, the back is not protected in case dust and sand should get underneath and the worst, the colored frame crumbles within a very short time.

Price: 7,89€

advantages

✓ Looks stylish

✓ Goes beyond the display for screen protection

✓ Closed all around

✓ Reverse side visible

✓ Arched bulletproof glass possible

With this case you only have the plus point of the appearance, good protection looks different. So if you want an eye-catching iPhone X and don't value protection, you can take a look at this case.
