Best Sony XZ2 cases
Sony unveiled the Xperia XZ2 and the Xperia XZ2 Compact back in February 2018, at the Mobile World Congress, but it can now be yours to own (snag the best deal here).
If you already own the Xperia XZ2 (or its Compact companion), you probably know that it is the first phone to record in full 4K and HDR, features an always-on fingerprint sensor, and is waterproof. The XZ2 is also all glass – curved 3D Gorilla Glass 5, but glass nonetheless. Read our full review of the Xperia XZ2 and the XZ2 Compact. We’ve also looked into which one is better.
If you already feel wary of impending scratches and drops, here are some cases that could keep your XZ2 in great shape for longer. Many of the cases also have XZ2 Compact versions as well.
KuGi’s case has been designed specifically for the XZ2 to allow easy access to the speakers, ports and buttons. It only does cover the back of your phone though, so you may need an additional screen protector if you’re accident-prone (like most of us).
The anti-slip polycarbonate shell provides protection against scratches and shock, and also keeps your device dust-free. And if you’re not too fond of the gold, you can find the Frosted case in blue (£4.95/$US7.95) and black (£3.95/US$7.95).
The case is also available for the Xperia XZ2 Compact for £29.95/ US$5.50, though it is currently on sale for only £3.95. KuGi has a lifetime warranty and a 30-day refund policy on their products to make you feel even safer.
The Olixar FlexiShield is a lightweight silicone case that comes with a non-slip coating for butterfingers. It also has a raised bezel edge around the screen and camera areas to prevent unwanted scratches and scuffs.
This FlexiShield is available in blue (pictured) and black. You can find it for the the XZ2 Compact ( £4.99/ US$6.99) in those colours as well. Both models come with a 2-year warranty.
Another lithe yet durable case from Olixar is the ExoShield. Like the FlexiShield, this case comes with a non-slip coating and raised bezel edges to keep your camera and screen scratch-free. There are also cut-outs for access to all buttons and ports.
For those who prefer it, this is your no-nonsense snap-on bumper case. The ExoShield also comes in a clear design (£9.99/ US$11.99), if you want to show off the all-glass natural beauty of your XZ2.
You can find the XZ2 Compact version for £9.99/US$11.99 on Mobile Fun UK and Mobile Fun US.
We would be remiss to leave out the ArmourDillo from Olixar, a style we mention in many of our best cases round ups – and for good reason. The ArmourDillo, like its name suggests, offers rugged all-round protection.
It’s composed of two polycarbonate layers that piece together, offering shock absorption while still being lightweight. It also has raised bezel edges and a textured finish for additional non-slip protection. We also like its built-in viewing stand.
Keep your Xperia XZ2 and your valuable cards all in the same place with this wallet case from G-Hawk. This case will keep your phone protected from all the little horrors of phone upkeep: scratches, shock, fingerprints and dust.
The outer shell is reinforced with steel, which means your device will remain protected from sharp objects as well. Meanwhile, the microfibre interior lining keeps your screen scratch-free.
This case is made of synthetic leather, but considering it costs less than a fiver, you can’t really go wrong. The G-Hawk case is only available in the UK, but US shoppers can find similar wallet cases from KuGi for US$8.99.
This case from BoseWek has a leather-grain texture on the back and silicone strips on the sides to prevent slips and drops. Its lightweight, elegant, and comes with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty.
The BoseWek is available in both blue (£7.95) and black (£6.95), though only in the UK.
The iBetter flip case is simple, elegant and lightweight. It allows easy access to all ports and buttons, while protecting your Xperia XZ2 from scratches, bumps, dust, and dirt. The cover also folds into a stand for hands-free viewing.
If you run into any issues, iBetter offers lifetime technical support and a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty. This case is not available on Amazon US.
iBetter offers a lifetime warranty on this case. While not available on Amazon US, US shoppers can find a similar case from KuGi for US$5.50 + $3 shipping.
This clear case is a great option for those who want to show off the 3D curved glass glory of their Xperia XZ2. The cutouts on this case also allow easy access to ports, buttons and speakers.
It’s made of poly-carbonate (PC) and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and uses “Air Cushion Technology” – all fancy ways of saying it will keep your phone scratch free, slip-resistant, and safe from unforeseen drops.
Here’s another great option from KuGi that’s durable and stylish. This PU leather wallet case, as you can expect, has slots for credit/debit and ID cards, though like Sony’s Style case, also converts into a stand.
The case is lightweight, offers easy access to ports, speakers, and buttons, and stays closed with a magnetic fastener.
It’s available in black but you can also find it in a vibrant blue, red, or lime green (pictured). It’s less than £5 on Amazon if you choose the black version, and comes with a six-month manufacturer’s warranty – what more could you ask for?
Of course, it would be silly to ignore Sony’s own offerings. If you’re looking for a case that’s sure to fit and offer protection, you can turn to the manufacturer itself.
Sony’s Style Cover Stand, as you can guess, folds into a stand for the Xperia XZ2. Sure, we’ve seen this before and it’s nothing mind-blowing, but it’s still a nifty feature to have.
What’s more nifty? Opening and closing the case wakes and puts your phone to sleep. The Style Cover Stand is available for the XZ2 Compact as well, and in a variety of colours: grey, green, black and pink. You can find all colours and models on Mobile Fun UK and Mobile Fun US.
