The best ZTE Axon 30 Ultra cases and covers

ZTE may not be the word on everyone’s lips where high-end flagship smartphones are concerned, but the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra is a strong reason why you can’t dismiss the company so easily. Absent for a while due to U.S. government crackdowns, ZTE has come roaring back with an excellent $749 smartphone. It lacks 5G in the U.S. and some of the features you might get with competitors, like wireless charging and water resistance, but even with those concessions, it’s still a great smartphone.

Like any expensive device, you’re going to want to keep it safe. A protective case is a must these days, and a good one will keep your valuable phone protected from dirt, scratches, bumps, and more — and some even add extra features, like kickstands or wallet functions. Here are some of the best ZTE Axon 30 Ultra cases and covers.

Shantime Soft Silicone Bumper Case

Don’t want a big, bulky case that adds thickness to your phone? You’re not alone there, and this thin case from Shantime will be a great choice for you. It has a sleek, minimalist design without logos or other additions, and the simple black and white color options mean your phone stays understated. That strength is also a weakness, though, and if you’d rather something flashier, you won’t find it here. The TPU is thin and lightweight and should offer decent everyday protection against bumps, scratches, and minor shocks. Best of all, it won’t hit your wallet particularly hard either.

Available in a bold red (but also in other more sedate colorways), HualaBro’s PU leather flip cover is a great option if you like to flip your phone open like a retro Star Trek tricorder. A magnetic clasp keeps the case closed, and the front cover helps to keep your display safe, while the TPU inner core keeps the rest of your phone insulated against bumps, scratches, and other minor damage. There’s a card holder on the inside, and it’s a real steal at this price as well.

Chengmi Zmone Slim TPU Case with Magnetic Ring Kickstand

Cases aren’t just for protection — they can add extra functions to your phone as well. The Zmone case from Chengmi is made from slim and sleek TPU, giving a minimalist style to your fancy flagship smartphone. But the real magic is on the back — a magnetic ring can be used to attach it to magnetic phone stands, as a finger-holder to boost your grip, and even as a rudimentary kickstand for watching videos. It’s a great price for what it offers, and while it’s never going to be considered a rugged case, it still protects well enough. It’s a solid case at a great price.

Gift Source PU Leather Wallet Case

We love a good wallet case, and while this certainly isn’t real leather (not at this price), this cheap wallet case from Gift Source will give you everything you’re looking for if your ZTE Axon 30 Ultra also needs to double-up as a purse or wallet. The inner TPU shell keeps your device safe from bumps and shocks, while the tough PU leather resists scratches, dirt, and other hazards. It folds into a kickstand when needed (as in the image above), and it lends a certain business executive chic as well. It’s a nice little wallet case that won’t burn up your budget.

Why not go straight to the source when looking for protection? ZTE offers its own protective options for its phone, and they’re as high-quality as you might expect. This case is made from durable and easy-to-clean PU leather that feels great in the hand and offers some fairly strong protection for your phone. The leather-like texture adds grip while also adding resistance against scratches and minor drops. Sure, the color is bright, to say the least, but it’s a cool, racecar-like color in real life and really announces its presence, as a flagship phone should. It’s the most expensive option on this list, but it’s still a steal.

The best protective iPhone cases in 2023: our 30 favorites
OtterBox Lumen Lunar New Year case on Deep Purple iPhone 14 Pro front

Apple's latest iPhones are more durable than ever, thanks to new technologies like Ceramic Shield and IP68 water resistance. However, that doesn't mean they're impervious to damage, and replacing your iPhone screen can get pretty costly. That's why you need a protective iPhone case.

Even if a drop doesn't result in a cracked screen, it's still likely to leave unsightly scratches, scuffs, and dents on the elegant glass and aluminum or stainless steel finish, and while you can add some peace of mind against shattered glass with an AppleCare+ plan, this won't cover cosmetic damage to your iPhone.

The best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 cases: 8 best ones right now
Photo of official Samsung cases for the Galaxy Z Flip 5.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 was revealed at Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2023, and it shows that Samsung is still serious about a foldable future. Brand new to the Flip range this year is a revamped outer screen, with a big 3.4-inch size and the ability to do even more than it could before. While you're still going to want to open the phone to do most of your business (or just scroll through Instagram), the new outer screen means you can stay on top of your notifications while keeping your phone folded and safe.

But as cool as all that is, accidents still happen, and even the best smartphones can't withstand a drop onto concrete without at least some damage. While keeping your phone folded and using the outer screen can help to keep it safe from hazards, the outside can still be chipped, cracked, or even shattered. That's where cases come in. Here are the best Galaxy Z Flip 5 cases you can buy right now.
