Keep your Lumia 950 looking stylish and safe with these 10 great cases

Microsoft’s flagship Lumia 950 is the first phone to run Windows 10 Mobile, and it has plenty of tempting features. You can unlock it with your iris, blow it up to desktop size with Continuum, and chat to Cortana. One thing you don’t get out of the box is protection for the 5.2-inch screen, should that slippery plastic body get away from you. Microsoft has also done away with the colorful covers of old, so if you aren’t content with glossy plastic in black or white, then it’s time to shop for the best Lumia 950 cases.

Tech21 Evo Check Case ($43)

Tech21 Evo Check Case

Despite being a slim and lightweight case, the Evo Check employs Tech21’s “Flexshock” technology to give you serious drop protection. Your Lumia 950 can survive falls from up to 6.6 feet when it’s wearing this case. The style is pretty understated, with a check pattern crisscrossing the smoky black, translucent, flexible shell. There’s plenty of reinforcement in the corners and a lip round the front to safeguard your screen. You’ll also find generous openings for the camera and ports, as well as good button covers.

Incipio NGP Case

This simple case from Incipio is a great choice for anyone who dislikes bulky cases. It provides a thin layer of malleable protection that will take the sting out of any impact and prevent scratches and scuffs. The cut-outs are just where they should be for uninterrupted access to features and functions, and the button covers are easy to find and press. The only detail to speak of is a subtle indented Incipio logo on the back, though you can get this matte case in hot pink if the black feels too dull.

A flexible TPU shell is nothing new, and it’s a good way to get basic protection for your Lumia 950, but Ghostek has changed things up here by wrapping an aluminum frame around it. The main TPU shell is actually transparent, with a Ghostek logo on the back, but the aluminum frame comes in black, gold, red, or silver and features metallic button covers. You’ll also get a tempered glass screen protector in the box for complete coverage.

Orzly Fusion Bumper Case ($10)

Orzly Fusion Bumper Case

Here’s a nice design if you want to avoid covering up the back of your Lumia 950. It combines a hard plastic back panel that’s completely transparent with a flexible rubber bumper. There’s a raised bezel to protect the screen. You’ll also find accurate openings for the ports, the camera, and the buttons. The TPU frame should absorb a bit of shock, but it’s very thin, so don’t expect rugged protection. It does add some grip, but it also has a glossy black finish and a wee Orzly logo that won’t be to everyone’s tastes.
