While the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are both able to resist water and dust, a case can definitely come in handy – especially if you ever drop the expensive handset. But protection doesn’t have to break the bank. There are a number of different cases available for less than $20. Here are five of our favorites.
i-Blason Armor Box
A nice rugged option, the Armor Box is made with two distinctive layers – a hard shell exterior and a flexible inner core. The front part of the case features a built-in screen protector. Also included is a side mount belt clip holster that can also swivel when needed.
The black version of the case for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is $17.99. Four other colors – blue, green, pink, and white – are $19.99.
Caseology Vault Series
A slimmer option only available in matte black, Caseology’s Vault Series case sports a carbon fiber texture for better grip. A raised front lip helps protect the front and back of the device and the screen. Both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cases cost $11.99.
X-Doria Impact Pro
The Impact Pro doubles up on protection with two distinct layers. Along with a clear material that lines the outside of case to provide grip and drop protection, the inside is made with a shock absorbing polymer to deflect the for of impact away from the phone. A raised front lip protects the screen when placing the phone face down.
Able to fit three credit cards along with cash, Silk Innovation’s Vault Armor Wallet protects entire handset. Specially textured sides help make the case easier to hold.
