Your iPhone X is expensive and walking around with it naked can lead to all sorts of scrapes, scratches, and scuffs. If you want to wrap your brand new iPhone X in a protective layer, you might as well buy a case for it! The Spigen Neo Hybrid is a great choice, but there are a lot of great cases out there for the iPhone X.

Simple Leather: Apple Leather iPhone X Case

We would, of course, be remiss if we didn't mention Apple's own cases for its products.

Apple's Leather iPhone X case comes in 13 different colors and is made out of specially tanned and finished European leather, so like the Nomad case, it will develop a natural patina over time. Apple no longer directly carries the leather case for iPhone X, but you can still find them on Amazon, and often at a nicely discounted price.

Protection and more

Buying a case for your iPhone X gives you peace of mind knowing that you don't have to worry every time your iPhone takes a minor tumble. Not to mention if you ever choose to try and sell your phone at a later date, keeping the iPhone X in mint condition will help its resale value.

I have been using the Spigen Neo Hybrid on my iPhone X for months and absolutely love it. It manages to offer fantastic protection while maintaining a relatively slim profile that doesn't mess the iPhone X's ability to wireless charge.

Of course, protection isn't the only thing that a case for your iPhone X can offer you, it can also give you some very handy practical applications. Cases like the mophie juice pack air can help you get more out of your iPhone by providing a built-in external battery that can keep your iPhone up and running even longer, so you can get more done in a day without having to charge your phone.
