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)

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.

Ghostek Cloak Case ($20)

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.

Noreve Tradition Leather Case ($50)

If you want something classy to slip out of your pocket during meetings, then Noreve’s real hand-crafted leather cases are always worth a look. This one flips open vertically and has a snug shell inside that will hold your Lumia 950 securely in place. The exterior is padded for extra protection, and the interior boasts a soft, embossed lining. You’ll find that the openings for access to buttons, ports, camera, and speaker work perfectly. You can customize this case further with alternative colors and textured finishes if you pay a little more.

Cimo TPU Case ($8)

This is as basic as it gets. A thin TPU shell with no markings that comes in black, blue, or purple. The back has a matte finish, but there are gloss highlights around the frame. It has a slight lip to protect the display and it adds grip, so you’re less likely to drop your Lumia 950 in the first place. The openings for ports and features are quite tight and there are thin button covers. Cimo also offers another version of this case with a gloss wave pattern on the back.

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.

Krusell Boras Wallet Case ($36)

This is a good professional-looking wallet case for the Lumia 950. It’s fake leather, but it has the right texture and look. Open it up, and you’ll find three card slots and a money pocket at the back. You can also fold it back to prop your Lumia 950 in landscape view. There are cut-outs for access to all your phone functions. It has a magnetic wrap-around closure that keeps it firmly shut in your pocket or bag. The only real detail is a small, circular metal logo on the front.

Tudia Merge Case ($13)

A classic design combining a TPU inner skin with a tough polycarbonate panel, this case will absorb impact shock and deflect damage. The flexible TPU layer is black and includes well-defined button covers and a protective lip around the screen. The hard panel comes in a variety of colors including black, slate, mint, and rose. There’s a small Tudia logo on the back. This is quite a thick case, but the port openings are generous, so it shouldn’t be a problem.

Case-Mate Tough Case ($25)

You’ll get decent drop protection from this dual-layer case, which features an impact-resistant shell and a shock-absorbing interior cushion. It has an unusual rugged, textured finish that really adds grip. There’s a very small, subtle logo on the back, and it only comes in black. The metallic button covers add a visual highlight. The openings provide easy access to everything you need.

Oeago Rugged Case with Kickstand ($8)

This big, chunky, two-piece case is another option that combines a malleable TPU inner with a hard plastic exoskeleton. There’s extra protection at the corners to reduce the risk of drop damage. The outer shell is black and features a wee kickstand, so you can prop the Lumia 950 in landscape view. The inner shell comes in white, blue, black, green, red, or, purple. The indented grid texture is eye-catching and it adds some grip in the hand.

We’ve reached the end of our roundup of Lumia 950 cases, but please post a comment if there’s another case you’d like to recommend.

Main home screen on the iPhone 13 Pro.

If you're looking at getting yourself a new iPhone 13, you've probably been wondering if it's all it's cracked up to be and if Apple's new MagSafe cases really can protect it.

Allstate Protection Plans is back again to find out. After having just recently given the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 its own breakability test, it put the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and the MagSafe cases through the wringer.  Unsurprisingly, due to the similar construction and materials of the iPhone 13 to those of the iPhone 12, it performed about the same as its predecessors except in one place -- the iPhone 13 silicone and leather MagSafe cases.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 range may be the newest S-range on the block, but that doesn't mean that the Galaxy S10 line isn't still a tempting option. With enough power to run anything you throw at them and good looks to turn heads for years to come, the Galaxy S10 line is still a fantastic choice if you're looking for a new smartphone.

Plus, the dual-camera system produces some exceptional shots.
