Speck Stay Clear Presidio

The claim to fame of Speck's Stay Clear Presidio case ($40, £20) is that it stays clear and doesn't turn yellow over time, like many cheaper clear cases do. Why? It's infused with a special coating to keep the oil from your skin from penetrating it. And it's tough, drop-tested to 8 feet.

OtterBox Symmetry Series

The OtterBox Symmetry Series is the company's most stylish case and is both fairly slim and protective. It's similar to Speck's cases, which certainly influenced OtterBox's design. The Symmetry Series comes in a variety of color options and starts at $50 (£30, AU$75).

Speck Presidio Pro

I'm a fan of Speck's Presidio Sport case, which is basically a tougher version of Apple's Silicone case and has a similar soft-touch finish that's nice and grippy. Speck calls it a "no-slip grip."

For some folks, the Sport was a little bulky, so Speck decided to make the Presidio Pro, which is essentially a standard Presidio case with its no-slip grip. Like the Sport it has Microban antimicrobial technology, which is supposed to "inhibit the growth bacteria that causes stains and odors."

It's a little expensive at $40 (£20), but it is one of the best iPhone XR cases out there.

Speck Candyshell Fit Textured

The Candyshell Fit Textured is a new case for Speck and one my favorites from the company. It comes in several color options for $30.

OtterBox Strada

One of my favorite folio cases -- the OtterBox Strada -- is available for the XR. It's highly protective and has a card slot on the inside of the cover that allows you to store a single credit card and perhaps a driver's license or some money. Handy, since Apple Pay still isn't universally accepted yet. It costs $50 (£43 or AU$75).

Speck Presidio Sport

Available in a few different color options, the Presidio Sport was ostensibly designed for gym rats or people who run with their iPhones. It holds up well over time. It also feels good in your hand and isn't too bulky for a tough case. Some people don't like the little button that covers the mute switch -- it does stick out a little -- but that's the only design gripe.

At $45 or £25, it is a little expensive. However, Apple's Silicone case is $39, so maybe it's not such a bad deal when you consider that it's more protective and has that extra layer of Microban.

Speck Presidio Grip

Speck's popular Grip series cases ($40, £20) come to the iPhone XR in a variety of colors. I'm partial to the dark blue.

Gear4 Victoria

This Gear4 Victoria Case is a protective translucent case that comes in several variations with different design. Its other clear cases, including the Piccadilly and Crystal Palace, are also very good. (Yes, this is a UK company.)

They all feature a lining of the company's special D3O shock-absorbing material. The case is $40 or £30.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

Spigen Liquid Crystal

Another popular slim case from Spigen, the Liquid Crystal is an inexpensive clear case that costs $13 (£10 or AU$18). It's not all that protective but it will appeal to folks who want a "barely there" slim case.

LifeProof Slam

When phones started becoming waterproof, LifeProof lost a little bit of its raison d'etre. After all, one of the main selling points of its cases was that they allowed your phone to take a dip. 

Now the company has shifted gears and is focusing instead on making slimmer, more attractive cases that offer good drop protection. Case in point: its Slam case that retails for $50 (£43, AU$55) and comes in four different color options, all of which feature a translucent back to show off your iPhone's rear.

I'm not sure it's all that different from competing cases out there, including ones from LifeProof's parent company OtterBox. But I like it -- it's well-designed -- and at least it costs less than LifeProof's other cases like the Next, which goes for $80 (see next slide).

LifeProof Next Case

Available in a few different trim colors, the LifeProof Next Case is a bit more protective and has a gasket that seals off the Lightning port. The case is "drop-proof, dirt-proof and snow-proof." It goes for $80 (£50).

LifeProof's totally waterproof Fre ($90, £70) remains the most protective in the line. They're good cases, but they should cost less.

Urban Armor Gear cases

Urban Armor Gear is bringing its full line of cases to the iPhone XR, which start at $35 (£25). I personally like the Plasma (shown here in "ice"), which features a translucent design in a few color options, and Pathfinder.

The Plyo is a slimmer case that lists for $40.

The Metropolis is a folio case with a slot for storing credit cards and cash (the Trooper also has a card holder). The extra-tough Monarch Series costs $60.

Casetify XR cases

Casetify's line of iPhone XR cases start around $35 and go up to around $50. They're relatively slim, sleek-looking cases that offer a decent protection and come in a variety of design patterns. They're worth checking out but they should probably cost a little less.

Catalyst Impact Protection case

Catalyst was once known for its waterproof cases (it still has them). However, it's shifted to making slim "shockproof cases" with a clear back.

I liked this one -- and it comes with a removable lanyard. I just wish the lanyard could be tightened on your wrist. It's a available in a few color options for $40 (£40).

Moshi Altra

Moshi has always made nice iPhone cases, and it has some new designs for the 2018 iPhones, including the Altra (shown here), which features a detachable wrist strap. Its new folio cases -- the Overture, StealthCover and SenseCover  -- are also worth checking out, and I like the new Vesta. (We're still waiting on samples for some of these models as some of Moshi's new cases aren't available quite yet.)

Prices range from $45 to $55.

15:21 Cork

Swedish startup 15:21 makes natural cork cases and wallets that give your phone a unique look and feel. These are slim cases that aren't incredibly protective. (You can read the story behind the company name here.)

I've tried the iPhone X version of the case and like it. 15:21 cases for the iPhone XR are coming soon -- it's currently listed as sold out on the site.

The price should be around 39 euros, with free shipping around the world. That converts to about $46, £35 or $AU54.

Grovemade

Portland-based Grovemade produces some beautifully crafted wooden cases. Its $59 wood bumper cases are the most affordable, but naturally I'm a fan of its Walnut and Leather Wallet case, which retails for a mere $129 (as a new customer you do get 10 percent off). It's one of the lighter, more refined looking wallet cases you'll find, and also comes in a lighter maple color.
