If you’ve gone shopping for a new phone case lately, you’ve probably seen rows and rows of overpriced plastic cases. While there are definitely some iPhone cases out there that are worth a premium price tag, there are plenty of other companies that offer reasonably priced cases. These cases may be inexpensive, but that doesn’t mean they’re cheap. The following cases offer a small price tag, but feature some nice design elements that make them feel luxurious. If you want to find a case with a price tag that doesn’t make you flinch, read on to see five of our favorite iPhone 6 cases under $20.
1. Poweradd Non Slip iPhone 6 Case
Dual-layer construction. Reinforced corners. Non-slip texture. These three features make this cheap iPhone case feel totally premium. For just over $10, this iPhone 6 case offers a blend of lightweight design and impact-resistant features. The texture of this case makes it ideal for people who frequently drop their phones. The best part? This case comes with a lifetime warranty, which means it’ll probably outlast the term of your current phone agreement. In an industry where most phone case warranties last one year, maybe three, a lifetime warranty is a nice perk.
2. MOUKOU 3-in-1 Hybrid High Impact Armor Defender iPhone 6 Case
Need the best possible case for $5 or less? This is the option for you. This 3-in-1 hybrid case consists of three pieces. This makes it more resilient when it hits the ground. We also like the way that this case has a front piece for added protection. For such a cheap case, this option protects a huge percentage of the phone’s surface area. While it is not a case that would match military drop test standards, and it’s certainly not waterproof, this case is still great for people who want a simple, cheap case that offers basic protection.
Looking for a simple case that’s understated and comfortable in the hand? We definitely recommend this case. Verus sent us a sample of this case to try out. It feels surprisingly good on your hand for such an inexpensive case. It does come apart into two layers, which is nice. However, it’s still somewhat hard to get the case back on and have it line up perfectly on the first try. However, the case is snug, and the few times I dropped my phone while it was in this case, my device was not damaged at all. Those were admittedly pretty short drops, certainly no more than three feet, but the phone case definitely did its job.
Looking for a thin, lightweight case that won’t break the bank? We love Incipio’s whole line of iPhone 6 cases, but this is a great choice for people who want a colorful, lightweight case. A nice feature of this iPhone 6 case is the flash-diffusing coated camera ring. Some iPhone 6 cases have a known problem with the camera. The shape of some cases can cause camera flash distortions. If you need a slim, simple case in a cute color, this Incipio case is available in turquoise and pink. No matter what color you pick, you’ll get the same level of protection.
Price: $11.76 and up, depending on color options selected
Normally retailing for $29.95, LUVVITT’s ARMOR SHELL case for the iPhone 6 can be found online for around $10. This case consists of two components. There’s a soft inner sleeve, which wraps around the phone and offers shock-absorption. On top of that, there’s a hard outer shell, which provides impact protection. This iPhone 6 case is perfect for someone who wants an OtterBox-like case, but for a fraction of the price.
