As we said in our ZTE Blade Z Max review, this phone is really big and adds some new features from last year’s ZMax Pro. It has a huge 6-inch screen and a new design that includes a grippy texture on the back and a repositioned camera in the top left. The headphone jack is located on the bottom of the phone next to the USB-C charging port. Ports that you use all the time should be easily accessible. The Blade Z Max needs a case that will protect that massive screen from drops, but also offer easy access to those ports. Here are our picks for the best ZTE Blade Z Max cases that will do that and more.
