Launched in the United States on Sprint, the HTC Bolt — also known as the HTC 10 Evo — sports HTC’s signature design with its polished chamfered edges that surround the aluminum body, a protruding lens with a single LED flash just above the camera, and a pill-shaped home button. The Bolt doesn’t come cheap, though, given it retails for $600 through Sprint. Aluminum sure is sturdy, but it will scratch and dent. To keep your smartphone as pristine as possible, you’ll want to purchase a good case. This will not only protect the body of your phone from damage but protect its display. Below are some of the best cases we’ve seen for the HTC Bolt.

Poetic Affinity Case ($13)

poetic-affinity-htc_bolt
Poetic Cases brings one of their most popular cases, the Affinity, to the HTC Bolt. This case is a real beauty and a bargain at $12.95. It is made of a clear polycarbonate surrounded with a soft shockproof TPU. The raised TPU along the sides provides a very solid grip, but the sides are a bit thinner than the case itself. This makes carrying the phone a joy because it doesn’t feel like you are holding anything thicker than the phone itself. This is one of those cases that not only look good, but feel good. It’s not bulky at all. It will provide good protection, it is very durable, and it won’t hide your phone’s design.

Incipio is one of the most trusted names when it comes to smartphone cases. Its dual-layer design offers lots of protection for your smartphone. This case is made up of an inner silicone piece and outer piece made of Incipio’s Plextonium material, which is a blend of polycarbonate that, according to the company, provides superior drop and scratch resistance. A shock absorbing inner core is something you always want to look for if you’re prone to dropping your phones a lot. It is important not just to protect your phone from cosmetic damage, but also internal damage. The case comes in Black/Black, Cyan/Charcoal, Gray/Charcoal, and Pink/Charcoal.

This case from MP-Mall tackles a couple of problems we all encounter with cases, how to clean them and take them off. This case is made from a shock absorbent and scratch resistant gel TPU material, so it’s easy to take on and off. You will also be able to easily rinse and clean it with water. The case has a slightly raised lip to protect the screen in case you place your phone face down. Lightweight, modern and with raised corners for drop protection, this case is also a great choice. It is available in Black, Clear, and Mint colors.
