10 great Xperia X cases to safeguard your shiny new Sony phone

best xperia x cases version 1464793231 lime green pis design
Sony
Sony softened the edges on the new Xperia X, and the glass on the 5-inch display runs out to meet them. It’s a seductive design, but if you want to make sure those curves stay free of unwanted dents and cracks, then you’d best invest in a decent case. Here are the best Xperia X cases we’ve seen so far.

Our favorite Xperia X cases

Sony Style Cover Case ($37)

Sony Style Cover Case

It’s a shame that official cases are so over-priced because they tend to fit perfectly and look stylish. This is a slim, minimal shell that’s also pretty flexible. The cut-outs are generous for easy access to your phone’s fingerprint sensor, camera, and ports. There are button covers for the volume rocker and camera button. The finish looks and feels like leather, and there’s a soft interior lining that gently cushions the Xperia X. The case also comes with an insert so that it fits Sony’s charging dock perfectly. There are four colors to match the handset finishes, so you have lime gold, rose gold, black, and white.

Case-Mate Tough Naked Case ($35)

Case-Mate Tough Naked Case

This transparent case shows off the design of the Xperia X, but also wraps it in a protective bumper that can absorb the impact of a tumble or bump. It has openings for your phone’s ports, camera, and power button, along with metallic button covers for the volume rocker and camera key. The hard back is translucent, with a subtle logo at the bottom. The bumper is a bit chunkier, but that’s what takes the sting out of unforeseen impacts.

Case-Mate

Olixar FlexiShield Case ($9)

Olixar FlexiShield Case

These soft gel cases are about as slim as they come. The clear version is a good choice if you don’t want to cover up Sony’s design. It has decent cut-outs for your phone’s camera, power button, and ports, and button covers for the camera shutter key and volume rocker. It’s also very flexible, so it’s easy to fit, and it makes the Xperia X easier to grip. The case also extends a tiny bit around the screen to offer a little extra protection. It’s obviously not rugged, but if you like your cases to be as minimal as possible, this is a good bet.

Roxfit Pro-2 Touch Book Case ($36)

Roxfit Pro-2 Touch Book Case

Here’s an interesting case that mimics Sony’s Style Touch Cover, but comes in at less than half the price. The idea is that it looks like a normal, slim folio-style case, but when you turn the screen on, the display shines through the front cover. You can actually interact with the touchscreen, take calls, view text messages, and more without opening the cover. The soft-touch shell is minimal, with corners that hug the Xperia X and a design that leaves all your phone’s ports and buttons easily accessible.

Roxfit

Tudia TPU Case ($10)

Tudia TPU Case

If you just want a basic TPU case and prefer a matte finish, then the Tudia TPU Case is worth a look. The company currently offers black, blue, gray, and frosted-clear varieties. All the cut-outs you need available, with button covers for the volume and camera keys. The edge surrounding the screen is also slightly raised to help protect your phone’s display when placed faced down. The back is textured and comfortable to hold, too, with a gloss logo and highlights at the bottom.
