Best HTC 10 cases available right now

Metal's strong, but concrete can be stronger, especially when it's you're shiny new smartphone taking an unexpected tumble towards the pavement. If you've got your eye on the impressive new HTC 10 then, you're going to want to wrap it in something to keep it safe from accidental knocks and drops.

Enter then the best HTC 10 cases you can buy right now. From slimline skins to splash-happy covers, there's an option to suit everyone's wants, needs and tastes. Because that iPhone 6S-rivalling brushed metal finish won’t stay that shiny for long without one.

1. HTC Ice View case

htc-ice-view-frontback-black

Remember the awesome Dot View case that added a bit of vintage, dot matrix charm to the HTC One M9? Well it's been improved, with the new HTC 10-friendly Ice View case offering clearer, crisper, more colourful visuals thanks to a semi-transparent front. It’s not just about style either. The Ice View cover has a number of tricks up its sleeve, showing message notifications, weather and time alerts, as well as letting you launch the camera without compromising your phone’s safety.

Buy it from HTC for £36.99

2. SLEO Clear Rubber Case

SLEO Case 1

If you’ve dropped just short of £600 on the HTC 10, chances are the purse strings are going to be a little tight. SLEO’s polycarbonate case will appease your wallet though, with the slimline offering costing just a couple of quid. While its low on price, it’s big on protection, with the snap-on case, which is available in a number of bright colours, offering drop protection without unwanted bulk.

Buy it from Amazon for £1.99

3. ArmourDillo Protective Case

There’s drop protection, and then there’s the ability to stand up to all out war. The ArmourDillo case falls towards the latter end of this spectrum, with two-layered protection that will save it from more than your typical knocks and drops. It’s handy as well as hardy too. Cut-outs offer easy access to the phone’s connection ports while a clever little flip-out stand on the rear lets you enjoy landscape movie viewing hands-free style.

Buy it from MobileFun for £12.99

4. Speck Candyshell Clear Case

Speck CandyShell Case

With its sleek curves and stunning brushed metal finish, the HTC 10 is one of the best looking smartphones going. It seems a shame then to hide this behind a bulky case. You don’t have to compromise sturdiness for style though, Speck’s transparent CandyShell cover will keep your high-end handset protected against scuffs and knocks without cramping its style.

Buy it from Speck for £12

5. Incipio Octane

Incipio Octane 2

Cases don’t need to turn your phone into a pocket-stretching monster. Incipio’s polycarbonate Octane case closely hugs the contours of your phone to keep it safe, and slim. The frosted back plays on the phone’s uncluttered metal design while the impact-absorbing bumper adds a bit of contrasting colour. This flexing boarder also helps keep your phone safe even if dropped to those all too fragile corners.

Buy it from Incipio for $24.99

6. Tech21 Evo Check Case

Tech21 case

Tech21 makes some of the toughest cases going, and this one’s seriously strong despite lining up 30 per cent slimmer and 60 per cent lighter than many of its rivals. While keeping all the essential ports free, it’s tough enough to withstand a 2 metre drop to concrete, that’s well above head height for most of us - what are you doing dropping your phone from up there?

Buy it from Tech21 for £29.95

7. Valenta Genuine Leather Pouch

Valenta Leather Pouch 1

Protecting your new phone doesn’t have to come at the cost of its good looks. Valenta’s folio-style case is crafted for supple calf’s leather and features discrete stitching for a classic look that’s as easy on the eye as the HTC’s own metal finish. It’s practical as well as pretty too, with a trio of credit card slots and a spot for your notes.

Buy it from MobileFun for £14.99

8. Proporta BeachBuoy

Proporta Beachbuoy

Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Sony Xperia Z5, the HTC 10 isn’t a friend of the wet stuff. It’s lack of waterproofing doesn’t have to be an issue though. The BeachBuoy lets you use the 10’s brilliant 12 UltraPixel camera to take sub-surface snaps, with the transparent front and back letting you still access the screen without your phone succumbing to a watery death.

Buy it from MobileFun for £15.99

9. Incipio Dualpro

Incipio DualPro 2

One layer of protection is good, two layers are better. That’s what the Dualpro offers, with a phone cuddling rubber surround topped with a solid, polycarbonate shell. This combination helps better cushion the handset in case of accidental spills whilst also protecting it from scratches if placed in a pocket or bag with keys and coins. As a bonus, the soft-touch finish offers a little more grip that the HTC 10’s slick metal form.

Buy it from Incipio for $29.99

Want to buy the Ice View H10 case from HTC's UK site but there's no option to buy just yet? Any information on when it can be bought here in the UK?

ordered gold htc 10 waitng for despatch thought id look at cases--Incipio dual pro looks good but only in black spigen slim armor looks better and also has a gold option so looks like i'll be getting that when available did look at dbrand but i think they lost the plot on this one and a clear option for the back should be an option

They told me the official HTC 10 accessories will be available 'at the end of June'.

Phones were shipped at the start of May... that's 2 months.
