Feast your eyes on this lot and take your pick, or risk going naked and try your luck.

Recommended HTC 10 cases

RhinoShield CrashGuard Bumper ($20)

RhinoShield CrashGuard Bumper

You may resent the idea of covering up your gorgeous new HTC 10, but there’s no need if you opt for the CrashGuard bumper. This tough bumper is a thick frame that goes around the phone leaving the screen and back open, though it extends far enough to protect both in the event of a fall. RhinoShield promises military grade drop protection that will keep your HTC 10 safe from drops up to 11 feet, and possibly beyond. It’s chunky, but it’s very light and it can be used in conjunction with screen protectors. There are generous openings for the ports, but the button covers are a bit stiff. It comes in black or white.

Seidio Surface Case ($30)

Seidio Surface Case

It’s a tried and tested combination of shock absorbent TPU on the inside and polycarbonate on the outside for Seidio. The outer layer comes in two parts and includes a kickstand for propping your HTC 10 in landscape view. It can be slotted away when not in use and stays put magnetically. There are openings for the camera and ports, and you’ll find tactile button covers on the side. This is a tough case and it comes in gold, red, or black.

Terrapin Ultra Slim Case ($8)

Terrapin Ultra Slim Case

Want something basic that won’t cost much? This slim Terrapin case is about as minimal as you can get. No logos or superfluous details here. It’s a tough, polycarbonate shell with a soft touch finish that’s comfortable to hold. There are cutouts for the camera, ports, and the buttons. This case should keep the back of the HTC 10 safe from scratches and it adds some grip, but it’s not really going to provide much in the way of drop protection.

Poetic Affinity Case ($13)

Poetic Affinity Case

This protective case has a clear polycarbonate shell enhanced with a TPU bumper and highlights that help dissipate the shock of any impact. The sides also have a ridged pattern that enhances grip, and there’s a raised lip around the display. The openings you need for easy access to the ports and other features are present and correct. The button covers are easy to feel and press. You can get the TPU portion in black or go for a completely clear version.

VRS Design Layered Dandy Case ($20)

VRS Design Layered Dandy Case

Fans of the wallet style of case might like this option from VRS Design. It’s not real leather, but it looks quite good. The shell that holds your HTC 10 is a contrasting color and the cover is stitched onto it, which gives it a unique look. There are three slots for stowing cards in the cover, along with a larger pocket at the back, and it closes securely with a magnetic clasp. You’ll also find openings for the camera on the back, the ports top and bottom, and the buttons on the side.
