The best iPhone 11 cases you can buy

1. Urban Armour Gear Monarch Series: Best for protection

Price: £44 | Buy now from Amazon

Urban Armour Gear (UAG for short) is well known for phone cases that look and act tough and, naturally, it has a selection of new models aimed specifically at iPhone 11 owners. Its Monarch series of cases offer a hefty five layers of protection for your new phone and although the cases don’t look the most attractive they are tough as old boots.

The case has been drop-tested to US military standards (MIL-STD-810G 516.6, to be precise) and should protect your pride and joy in the event of you dropping it or having it knocked inadvertently out of your hands. It’s also compatible with wireless charging. The Monarch sits at the more costly end of the phone case spectrum but given the level of protection on offer, it’s worth paying extra.

Key specs – Colours: Black, crimson, carbon fibre; Materials: Alloy metal and leather; Weight: Not stated

2. Speck Presidio Stay Clear case: Best clear case

Price: £15 | Buy now from Amazon

Clear cases are ten a penny but Speck’s Presidio is well worth paying a little extra for. This is a solidly constructed case, not some flimsy plastic covering, and it consists of two durable layers plus a raised bezel for protecting your screen. The plastic is treated with a coating that “prevents yellowing and oil absorption” and there’s Microban technology, too, designed to prevent the build-up of mould and bacteria. Not only that but there’s also 13-foot drop protection and a lifetime warranty. Impressive stuff.

Key specs – Colours: Clear; Materials: TPU; Weight: Not stated

3. DN-Alive Card Slot case: Best case for under £10

Price: £6 | Buy now from Amazon

For £6 this case offers a number of impressive features. The main selling point is definitely its in-built card-holder. This can hold up to two cards, which sit in a compartment on the rear, allowing you to leave your bulky wallet at home. There’s also a modicum of protection here, with the case made from a layer of hard PVC built on a layer of softer TPU plastic, which prevents the case scratching your phone when removing and replacing it in the case.

Key specs- Colours: Black; Materials: PC, TPU; Weight: 31.8g (Boxed-product weight)

4. Jeack Mirror Flip case: Best wrap-around case

Price: £14 | Buy now from Amazon

If you’ve ever been in need of a mirror to fix your hair on your rushed commute or you just want your phone to resemble a block of gold, Jeack has got you covered. It’s not just a pretty face, though: the polycarbonate shell protects your phone from impacts while a artificial leather lining prevents scratches. There’s also a kickstand for hands-free content viewing and the streamlined design is lightweight and slimline, unlike many flip cases.

Key specs- Colours: Black, blue, gold, purple, pink, silver; Materials: PU leather, ABS plastic; Weight: Not given

5. LoveCase Tropical case: Best for fashionistas

Price: £10 | Buy now from MobileFun

This is unlikely to protect your phone from a drop onto a hard concrete floor but does that really matter when it looks this fabulous? That being said, its soft, flexible construction will give your iPhone some impact protection while ensuring a close, unobtrusive fit; and we love its summery, banana-leaf design, too. The case has been printed with scratch-resistant ink, too, to ensure you can keep the summer alive throughout the coming winter and beyond.

Key specs – Colours: Tropical print; Materials: TPU; Weight: Not given
