These are the best cases and covers for the Honor 9 Lite smartphone

Honor, a sub-brand of Huawei, offers some of the best budget phones on the market. The Honor 9 Lite costs around $280 and, as we mentioned in our hands-on review, we loved the build of the device. One of the key things we mentioned is that, unlike the Honor 9 ,its more premium sibling, the Honor 9 Lite has an all-glass back, a 5.65-inch display, and a bezel-less design.

Put all these things together, and you have a smartphone that will need some protection out in the wild. Here are our picks for the best Honor 9 Lite cases and covers.

Nillkin Leather Case ($10)

KuGi SS Case ($8)
