Naturally, you’ll want to protect that large screen and expensive investment.

As a wallet case, it comes with a number of card slots, while it also incorporates a magnetic closure so you can effortlessly close it without having to worry about it flipping open by accident.

Made of soft, handmade PU leather and a gold electroplated frame, this case is perfect for anyone who wants their leather fix without having to buy a full-on wallet-style case.

This case combines wood veneer with carbon fiber texture leather on the back and TPU rubber inside. It’s a slim fit design case that offers simple protection along with good grip, so the phone won’t slide out of your hands. A raised lip lift further helps protect the phone’s screen, and a camera cutout means you can still comfortably snap photos or shoot video while the phone is housed inside. It supports wireless charging, so you can plop the phone down on a Qi-enabled charging surface without having to take it out of the case.
AiroShock technology provides impact protection in the lining of this case, which is made from black leather for a trendy yet classic look. It also employs the AutoAlignPlus mounting system for magnetically mounting to other Limitless 3.0 accessories for wireless charging.

With a sportier look than the others, this is the most minimalist case on the list, ideal for those who just want something simple yet classic.

It has a zippered case and detachable back cover that can hold the phone magnetically. Because of the magnetic attachment, however, you have to remove your phone in order to wirelessly charge it. It can also hold cards and money in several pockets, and it even comes with a bonus tempered glass screen protector. It’s made from premium selected leather and comes in different finish options, ideal for both men and women.
