HTC’s latest flagship smartphone is a beautiful device that’s receiving rave reviews. HTC 10 is an elegant phone with its full metal build and chamfered edges. Combined with some great specs, it’s being hailed as the best.
While there may be times you want to show off the aesthetically pleasing industrial design and the phone itself may be sturdy; a cover is like a poncho that protects your metal phone from falls and rough use.
HTC 10 costs $699, £569.99, or around AU$900 depending on where you’re located. Protecting it with a case makes a lot of sense, if you want to keep your stunning new HTC handset looking as lovely for months or even years to come.
No matter what you’re looking for, we managed to find a few really good HTC 10 cases that we think will tickle your fancy.
Here are the 15 Best HTC 10 Cases available:
1.) Love Ying Ultra Slim TPU Case
Users seem to love TPU cases and we see a lot of them this year. Love Ying came out with its own slim version of the TPU case in interesting colors, including pink, which is a beauty. At a glance, the Love Ying Ultra Slim case looks elegant and stylish. Made with Flexible TPU Gel rubber, the front edge is raised higher than the front screen and there is also a raised lip on the back. The case offers good protection for the front glass as well as the lens. The phone’s button and port openings are well tailored, offering easy access without leaving unnecessary portions of the phone’s body exposed. Your HTC 10 can be charged without removing the case.
Colors: Clear, Mint, Purple and Pink
2.) LK Ultra Slim TPU Case
Your new HTC 10 smartphone will love this ultra slim case from LK. It’s a very thin case that adds no bulk. This case uses treated smooth rubber that resists even the toughest stains and dirt. The soft rubber makes it easy to slip on and adds some much-needed grip. Access to all the ports and buttons is easy with the skin on. You can get a clear translucent version or tinted colors. This is not a really rugged case, but it will help guard your phone against scratches and light damage. If you’re looking for a really simple, thin and cheap case, then LK Ultra Slim is likely your best bet.
Colors: Jelly Series: Clear, Black, Hot Pink, Mint, Purple
3.) LK Air Hybrid Crystal Clear Case
Unlike LK Ultra Slim cases, the Air Hybrid range, are crystal clear transparent cases. You’ll be able to appreciate the design of your HTC 10 with this clear case. It has a clear back panel with colored edges. Designed with air hybrid technology which offers higher shock protection, this is one of the more durable cases on the market. This sleek offering provides excellent drop protection, thanks to the hard PC used for the clear back panel and the superior TPU used for the edges on all four sides. This keeps your phone safe from watermarks, fingerprints and scratches. The cut-outs are accurate and you’ll find it easy to access all buttons, controls and ports, without having to remove the phone. Some clear cases tend to have a plain and dull look, but not the LK Air Hybrid. This case exudes a unique elegance and charm.
Colors: Clear, Black, Hot Pink, Mint, Purple, Rose Clear
4.) Cimo Slim Matte Case
The Cimo slim fit case for the HTC 10 is beautifully designed and looks elegant. At just 0.8 ounces, the slimness of the phone remains intact without adding bulk. With a matte finish, this phone is made from shock-absorbing and shatterproof superior TPU material. A hybrid of plastic and silicone, the case has the flexibility of a silicone case with the superior protection of a hard case. The anti-slip properties give you more grip and the beveled edges on the front protect your screen from scratches or water even when you lay it upside down on a flat surface.
This case gives you the same tactile feel as using your HTC 10 without a case. The advantage with this case is that it is textured on the sides. It’s like the difference between fine Egyptian silk and cotton sheets; there’s a texture, but they feel comfortable. The top area near the IR port is open as well as the earplug and power plug ports at the bottom. All the buttons are covered but easily accessible. There is a raised lip around the front, ensuring the screen is protected from breaking if it falls flat. Slim, protective and affordable, Cimos for HTC 10 is a case to beat.
Colors: Black, Blue, Purple, Pink, Smoke
5.) Cimo Slim Grip Case
The Grip version of the Cimo Slim Fit Case is similar to the Matte version reviewed above. Although the Cimo Grip case comes with a glossy finish on the back as opposed to the Matte finish, it’s in fact the grippiest HTC 10 case we’ve come across. The grippy sides offer great protection without making the phone look bulky.
Everything else, including the dimensions are the same as the Matte version.
Colors: Clear, Black, Blue
6.) Cimo Slim Wave Case
Perfect for users who’re out on the market looking for a new HTC 10 case that is modern yet durable. The Cimo Slim Wave is a super slim case that adds absolutely no bulk to your new smartphone. It’s designed with a nice looking wave-like curve on its glossy back.
Everything else, including the dimensions are the same as the other Cimo HTC 10 cases.

8.) Tauri Thin TPU Case
There are plenty of slim and lightweight cases for HTC 10; Tauri is yet another beautiful looking thin case. It may be light and may have a delicate look but it’s stronger than most other slim cases. It can actually take far more impact and is a worthy buy if you’re in the habit of dropping your phone often. The case can be cleaned with water without damaging any part of it.

9.) Tauri Leather Wallet Case with Stand
This one from Tauri is a hand-made flip wallet Folio case made of leather. It offers pockets inside the case that can hold three to four cards and some of your cash as well. Even with a debit card, credit card, a driver’s license and some folded bills stuffed in there, it’s only about a millimeter thicker than most standard cases. The case’s body is made of faux leather that is scratch and dust resistant. The case’s slightly rough texture helps provide a better grip. It closes securely with a Velcro strap and has separate openings for the camera and other buttons.
What sets this Tauri Leather Wallet Case apart is the Kickstand feature. It’s perfect for watching Videos, Messaging or Video calling without having to hold it. We also love the fact that it comes in a very beautiful Hot Pink color.

11.) Sleo Hard PC Back Case
One of the cheapest HTC 10 cases available is also one of the cutest, especially the solid and bright red, purple and blue colors that the case comes in. This case has a rubberized hard polycarbonate (PC) back which screams strong and secure, eliminating all fear of scratches or damage. Apart from the exceptional colors, another reason for our excitement is that it’s super grippy, making it very difficult to drop (unless you throw it). The exterior looks smooth and silky but offers great grip with its non slip matt surface. The case is super slim and snaps on easily, and allows easy access to all the phones features and functions. This will reflect the personality of a bold, outgoing and cheerful person to perfection.

It offers greater scratch, stain and damage resistance too. Snaps on easily and allows direct access to all HTC’s buttons and ports. Check out the endless colors of this case and you’ll notice that the red and other colors in this series are much softer than the ones in the Sleo Hard PC Back cases. The choice is yours. Overall, this is perfect for those of you who seek superior protection but in subdued colors.

13.) Sleo Ultra-Slim and Clear Case
A third option from Sleo, this one is almost the cheapest (yes, there’s a cheaper case) on our list of HTC 10 cases. This is a nice pick in the category of clear cases. It’s ultra-slim and extremely light. Made from superior TPU material, it has transparent, flexible and soft skin. With the clear color of the case, you get to show off the beauty of your HTC 10. Overall this is a very simple case with no frills. Once slipped on, it stays securely in place. It comes in a variety of colors, all of which are transparent. The utter simplicity may not appeal to everyone, but this case sure has its share of takers.

14.) Oeago Dual Layer Protective Case
A bulky case may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but there are many who don’t like giving up protection in the name of sleekness. Most thin and sleek cases also offer minimal protection. Tough and rugged is what comes to mind when you see this Oeago HTC 10 case. This is a heavy duty protection case – almost like armor for your new handset. It has a hard impact-resistant plastic outer cover and soft shock absorbing TPU inner lining that can keep your phone safe from all sorts of falls, bumps and scratches. As is visible, double-thick TPU is used for the edges giving the phone a tough look. This case comes with a foldable kickstand for hands-free video calling, movie watching, reading and more.

Easy and complete access to all HTC 10 connection points and ports is given. The protective lip around the screen protects it from contacting a flat surface. Overall, this case may not offer the level of protection that its sturdier counterpart the Oeago Dual Layer case offers, but this level of protection is sufficient for most people. This translucent case is very sleek and easy to carry around without feeling any additional weight.
