Not only can a good case make our phone look sleeker and more stylish, but it also helps protect our phones from drops, shocks, and spills. While the iPhone Xs Max comes with an IP68 water resistance certificate, it is not very resistant to scratches and drops. Even a single drop can be fatal. If you have the best protection available, you will be able to do your tasks with a peace of mind. This is especially the case when you spend more than $1, 000 on a phone —  it is only natural to ensure its safety. For these reasons, it’s always a good idea to protect your phone by keeping it in a case.


Below is our take on the five best cell phone cases for the new iPhone XS Max:
