So, you’ve put down the $400 it takes to become the owner of a brand-new ZTE Axon 7. Regardless of your reasons for buying ZTE’s Android phone, it’s probably safe to say this will be the phone you use during your day-to-day activities. Like other smartphones, there’s always the possibility it will fall off a table, however, or get scratched. To prevent this, you may want to look into buying a case for it. To save you some time, we’ve done the hard work for you and found five of the best ZTE Axon 7 cases currently in existence, each of which is designed to protect your new smartphone from the outside world. From clear cases to wallet cases (and everything in between), there’s bound to be one here that catches your eye.
CoverON Holster Case ($7+)
For the Axon 7 owner who’s always on the move, or simply prone to dropping their phone a lot, there’s CoverON’s Holster case. As the name suggests, it comes with a holster attachment, allowing you to clip the case onto your belt and set your phone at one of 13 different angles for easy access. The case, which is made of rubber and a hard outer shell, also features a kickstand on the back, so the phone can rest horizontally when it’s not attached to the holster. You can also remove the kickstand from the back if you ever want to get rid of the additional protrusion on the rear.
Vinve’s Relievo case is made using TPU and silicone and manages to protect your phone while giving it a whole new look; one that’s also certain to draw attention. The case’s flexibility makes it easy to put on and take off, but since it has cutouts for your phone’s side buttons, camera, and ports, there may not be a reason to ever remove it. Those wishing to avoid adding more bulk to their phone need not worry, either, as the case is pretty slim and fits the Axon 7 perfectly. It will increase the phone’s overall dimensions, to be sure, but not by very much.
J&D’s case is especially convenient if you want to get rid of your wallet. This synthetic leather case, as you may expect, will cover the entire Axon 7 when closed. The magnetic strap also ensures that it stays closed. The inside of the case features three card slots, as well as a holder for your money. Like the aforementioned Vinve case, J&D’s wallet case also features precise cutouts, meaning you’ll never need to take your phone out of it. And if you ever get the urge to watch video, you can fold the cover back to position the Axon 7 horizontally.
If you’re all about adding more grip to your phone, Oeago’s case for the Axon 7 will get the job done. The additional grip is provided via a textured back, which sits on top of a layer of soft silicone. Aside from that, other benefits include some welcome shock absorption, a fitted design, and buttons covers that don’t interfere with your phone’s functionality. It also feels really nice to hold, thanks to the material and coating used to make it.
The case that officially comes from ZTE, the manufacturer behind the Axon 7, also has the most unique feature on this list. The flip-like design is similar to that of the wallet case above, but instead of slots for credit cards and IDs, it has a window on the front cover that lets you see notifications and messages without having to open the case. Another useful feature is the built-in sensor, which will trigger or turn off the display. Those who want something similar can also look into the Axon Flip Cover which, while not specifically made for the Axon 7, should still accommodate it just fine.
