It's been a little while since the Apple iPhone 8 was first released, yet it remains a popular option for those wanting iOS functionality, but without a huge outlay.
While the iPhone 8's aluminum unibody affords some protection, that sleek metal body can be easily scratched or dented – and if you drop the phone, it's likely to shatter the screen or cause internal damage – so it's best to protect your phone with a case.
Below, we’ve picked six of the best Apple iPhone 8 cases, covering various styles and budgets, so you can easily enhance your phone's style, customize it, or simply just protect it from harm.
1. Apple iPhone 8 Silicone Case
Official and well made smartphone case
Designed for iPhone 8 – but also works with the iPhone 7 – this silicone case fits snugly over the volume buttons, side button, and curves of your device easily. The silicone material has a good, grippy feel and the case is so slim it barely adds any bulk (making this phone and case ideal for those with smaller hands.) The soft microfibre lining on the inside also helps to protect your iPhone 8 from scratches, shocks and falls.
2. Snakehive Vintage Collection Wallet Case
A premium product with a price to match
If you’re the type of person who likes your phone to double as a wallet, this premium iPhone 8 case would suit you. The inner of the leather case is made of a smooth soft leather designed to protect your phone screen from scratches, and the outside is made from a velvety soft, matte Nubuck leather. This case is available in a range of colors.
3. Apple Leather Case
Official and quality item
This official case from the makers of the iPhone 8 is a perfect fit for your phone. Apple has ensured that none of the functionality of the phone is lost, while maintaining its slimline feel. The case has been crafted using soft French leather and it features Apple's microfibre lining, that adds further protection against bumps and falls.
4. Lumee Duo Marble LED case
The one for taking great selfies!
The Lumee Duo case for the Apple iPhone 8 is perfect for anyone who wants to take flawless selfies wherever they are and whatever the light conditions.
The Duo features front- and rear-facing lights, effectively turning your iPhone 8 into a mobile lighting studio, so now you can shoot great selfies in the dark too! Despite the built-in lights, the case is still slim enough to fit into your pocket or bag.
There are some pretty cool colors and styles to choose from, but this marble one is our favorite.
5. Lifeproof Frè Series for iPhone 8
Go travel! This case protects against the elements and huge drops
If you like adventures and want to take your iPhone 8 along with you, you'll probably need to invest in a fully enclosed case like this one from Lifeproof. This robust case features built-in screen protection, an anti-reflective glass camera lens cover and front-facing sound ports, which protects against water, snow, dust and drops, without compromising on any of the iPhone's features.
6. OtterBox Defender Series for iPhone 8
Affords maximum drop protection
OtterBox is renowned for its robust phone cases, and it's not surprising as each protective case goes through over 230 hours of testing! So if you're the type of person who throws your iPhone around, or you're prone to dropping it, this offering is probably for you.
The case's polycarbonate shell offers great protection against drops, bumps and shocks, and its built-in screen protector with raised, bevelled edges will prevent scratches. This case might not be the most stylish looking one available and it adds a little bulk to your slim-line smartphone, but if you're after protection, this is the one to go for.
