CES 2016: Top Phone Cases from Rugged to Designer

January 15, 2016 •

This day and age, the phone you carry says a lot about you. And don’t forget about phone cases. The phone case you choose (or don’t choose) is an indication of your personal style. For instance, your phone case choice can signal to people that you are an outdoors enthusiast, a fashionista or just into simplicity. We scoured the floors of CES 2016 and have come up with a list of our favorite phone cases. From rugged, protective cases to stylish designer cases for the fashion forward, these cases are a fun element that can enhance your mobile experience!



Unique phone cases are Toast’s bread and butter! Initially a Kickstarter campaign, Toast is becoming a major player in the phone case market; You may remember Toast from a previous article we did on the best phone cases for Android. With offerings like real wood and genuine leather phone cases, your phone is sure to get a lot of attention. Toast also offers custom options – just upload your design, choose your material and Toast will pop it out for you. Cases are offered for a variety of phone makes and models; they even make cases for laptops and tablets! Toast cases are handcrafted in Portland, Oregon.



You’re probably all ready familiar with Speck phone cases, and for good reason. Speck cases are not only durable, but they are also turning out some really great designs! Their CandyShell line offers cases that are simple and completely clear to cases with fun, whimsical graphics. You’ll want to check them out sooner than later! We even had a fun moment at CES when we discovered that Speck was using our tablet holders for their booth display! Luckily, we had a Speck case on hand and were able to return the favor in our booth!



Are you the earthy, modern hippy type? If so, you will love Recover phone cases. These unique cases feature minimalist designs made out of natural, sustainable materials, such as wood and shell. Also based out of Portland, Oregon, Recover offers cases for iPhone. Like to listen to groovy tunes on your phone? You can also purchase a nifty little portable, wireless speaker on their site called the Outlier.



We had a chance to chat with Incipio at CES while checking out their newest line of stylish phone cases! Glitz and glam was the name of the game for the cases pictured above. For those looking for something more pragmatic, Incipio showcased a line of demure grey fabric cases, perfect for the business professional, as well as a newly released line of performance cases. Incipio offers a large selection of phone cases for many makes and models of phones, including iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy series, as well as tablet, laptop and other mobile accessories.



As usual, Otterbox had a great booth at CES this year. What was even better was the surprising debut of limited edition designer phone cases in the Symmetry Series. The series features cases designed by fashion icon Nina Garcia. The Brazilian Pop! cases feature bold, street-style designs and are sure to be a hit! LifeProof, which is part of the Otterbox family, also displayed rugged cases boasting a capacity for being waterproof, dirtproof, snowproof and dropproof.
