The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus might not cost as much as Apple’s flagship X model, but they are still expensive. The smaller of the two starts at $699, while its bigger brother will set you back at least $799.
To protect your smartphone from bumps and bruises, a case is something you should consider getting. Not only should it minimize the chance of any damage done to the device if it slips out of your hand and falls to the ground, but will also give it a different look — helping it stand out in a sea of other iPhones.
Thinking of getting a case for your iPhone 8 or 8 Plus? You’ll find the best iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 cases currently available below.

Spigen’s iPhone 8 case series is compatible with wireless charging and looks gorgeous thanks to its patterned back made from TPU. It also features a rigid bumper frame that’s designed for impact and should keep your device safe from harm.
The case has all the necessary cutouts as well as tactile buttons on the sides. It prides itself with military-grade drop protection and is available in three color options: Gunmetal, Champagne Gold, and Satin SIlver. Pricing on Amazon starts at $13.99 and goes up to $16.99 depending on the size and color — get it via the buttons below.
The great thing about Sena’s case is that it doubles as a wallet and also covers the screen of the device. It’s made from tumbled leather, has a soft herringbone lining, and sports two compartments inside for storing a credit card as well as cash.
The case features a raised lip that keeps the display elevated on flat surfaces, has cutouts on the back and bottom for the camera, speaker, and charging port, and sports a very minimalistic and stylish design. It comes in Black, Cognac, Denim, or Praline, and will set you back $62.95. In addition to an iPhone 8 case and iPhone 8 Plus case, there’s also iPhone 7 series variants.

The Tech21 Evo Check case is translucent and has a pattern on the back that’s easy on the eyes. It’s made from three layers that will make sure your iPhone survives a drop from a height of up to 3 meters (10 feet).
The case is thin, so it won’t add a lot of bulk to your device, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty for peace of mind. There are a few different color options available including Rose Tint/White, Clear/White, Smokey/Black, and the eye-catching Aqua, all of which retail for $39.95.
This case is similar to the Sena WalletBook described above, as it also protects the screen and doubles as a wallet. It’s made from leather, has a vertical card slot inside, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
The OtterBox Strada also has a simplistic design but with a few more details on the back than Sena’s case and comes with a magnetic latch that will make sure the book-style display cover stays in place. OtterBox’s case for the iPhone 8 comes in Burnt Saddle, Onyx, and Pacific Opal, while those of you who own the Plus variant of the device can also get it in Espresso and Soft Opal. Pricing starts at $21.41 and goes all the way up to $59.95.
Official iPhone 8 Silicone Case
This is an official case for the iPhone 8 series designed by Apple. It’s made of silicone, has a soft microfiber lining, and won’t add much bulk to your smartphone. As you would expect from Apple, the case has a very minimalistic design but is available in a total of nice colors.
The great thing about it is that it’s compatible with wireless charging, so you don’t have to take it off when the battery needs more juice. The case has all the required cutouts for the camera, charging port and so forth, and retails for $35 (iPhone 8) and $39 (iPhone 8 Plus) on Apple’s online store.
These are the best iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus cases in our opinion, although we’re sure there are many other great options available. They should fit just about any budget, as they range from around $14 to $63.
