The Urbanite (iPhone SE; $35 MSRP, $26.95 on Amazon) offers impact protection without adding excess bulk to your iPhone. This sleek case features multiple layers of sturdy materials, raised edges to prevent scratches and dents to your screen, and reinforced corners for extra peace of mind. The Urbanite comes in green/black, gray/pink, or brown.
The Glide Case (iPhone SE; $24 MSRP, $14 on Amazon) is a hard-shell case that adds minimal bulk for barely-there protection. Manufactured with nontoxic materials, this two-piece case features an anti-smudge finish to minimize residue and scratches, comes with a glare-free camera opening to improve photo quality, and includes both front and back screen shields and an extra bottom piece to switch up its look.
The Identity (iPhone SE; $35 MSRP, on sale for $20) features a glossy exterior engineered to “self heal” from scratches over time thanks its a special polymer composition.
This dual-layer case protects your iPhone from drops up to four feet high, sports a raised edge for front damage prevention, and includes interchangeable back frames to create your own custom look. The Identity is available in berry crush, mineral blue, black, white, or white pearl.
The case’s soft finish makes slipping it in and out of your pockets easy, while its resilient exterior prevents damage from bumps and scratches. The Stashback comes in white/turquoise or white/gray.
The Sleek Armor (iPhone SE; $30 MSRP, $13 on Amazon) offers a rugged enclosure made of shock-absorbent materials, reinforced at each corner for extra drop protection. This sleek case features a textured carbon fiber back, a raised edge to prevent screen damage, and unobstructed access to all of the iPhone’s ports and buttons.
The case includes an inner metal frame, an anti-slip side texture combined with TPU button covers and flaps, and a co-molded design for the perfect fit. The Revolution comes in black, green/gray, white/gray, pink/gray, or blue/gray.
The CandyShell (iPhone SE; $34.95 MSRP, select colors $24.46 on Amazon) is an iPhone case staple, and Speck recently added new patterns and color choices to its lineup for the iPhone SE. The case meets military drop-test standards, includes rubberized press-through button covers to keep out dust and dirt, and comes with a protruding bezel that keeps your iPhone from sliding when resting on a slippery surface.
The Kirigami (iPhone SE; $25 MSRP, on sale for $15 through SwitchEasy, $8.44 for select colors on Amazon) keeps your iPhone fashionably protected with textured star- or heart-shaped cutouts in the back.
The case sports an anti-slip rubber coating, includes matching press-through button covers, and comes with interchangeable metallic inserts. The Kirigami is available in six different themes: HotLove, LavenderWings, NightWings, PureLove, SummerWings, or SweetLove. (You’ll have to check SwitchEasy’s website to decipher each look.)
The TICDA Shell (iPhone SE; $10 MSRP) is a lightweight case, featuring a motivational statement in different languages (“Today I can do anything”—TICDA. Get it?). Made of biodegradable polycarbonate, the case features raised edges to prevent cracks to your screen, a smooth finish, and cutouts for your back-facing camera, Lightning connector, and buttons.
