Asus offers some quality, midrange smartphones all over the world, and the latest in the Zenfone Zoom series — the Zenfone 3 Zoom — is no exception. Starting at $329, it offers a dual-camera setup with a portrait camera, just like the iPhone 7 Plus.

In addition to Gorilla Glass 5, a Snapdragon 625 processor, and a 5.5-inch display, the Zenfone 3 Zoom sports a massive 5,000mAh battery that powers the phone. That said, you’ll want to protect your device from drops, scratches, and other unforeseen events.  Below, we’ve rounded up a variety of Zenfone 3 Zoom cases, whether you’re looking for a pouch, a wallet, or a more traditional case.

It also currently comes with a bundled screen protector, giving you all-around protection, and you can nab it in either a black, gold, or red.

The back of the case has a cut-out for the your phone’s dual cameras, so that you don’t have to take out your phone just to snap a picture. The Flip Case doesn’t have speaker cut-outs to take a phone call with the wallet closed, however, because the front is where you stow all your cards. The case can also bend into landscape position, so you can set your phone on a desk or table when watching video. It currently comes in black, purple, and rose gold.

The CoverON FlexGuard is made of both hard and soft thermoplastic, which gives you adequate drop and scratch protection. This design keeps the case thin and lightweight, rendering it great for everyday use. Another good feature is the lip on the front bezel, given it prevents your phone’s screen from touching a surface when placed face down. The case comes in either black or clear varieties.
