iPhone cases

Price range $100+

Sena Isa Crossbody Leather Hand Bag

The Universal Isa Crossbody Leather Hand Bag lists several iPhone versions that it works with, but it is a universal case that works with most phones with screens up to 5.5″.  The Sena bag is made of quilted leather and has gold-finished hardware.  There’s a dedicated pocket for the phone, plus other pockets for keys, cards, wallets, and the rest of your kit.  It’s available in black or red for $129.95 from Sena.

Price: $129.95

Vaja Premium iPhone X cases

We’ve been writing about and reviewing Vaja cases for over 17 years. My very first (I think) Vaja case review was for the Palm V. If a company has been around for 17 years, you can assume that they know what they are doing and Vaja definitely does. They make high-quality luxury leather cases and offer the customer a myriad of customization options from color selection to leather type.

Price: $119 – $289
Where you can buy one: Vaja

Price range $50 – $100

Apple’s iPhone X Leather Folio

If you want to fully protect your new iPhone X, consider the sharp looking iPhone X Leather Folio which wraps the iPhone on all sides and also provides a cover to protect the display. The cover can even wake and sleep the phone when you open and close it.

Price: $99.00
Where you can buy one: Apple

Price range $10 – $50

Totallee iPhone X case

Totallee cases (and I use the word case lightly) are the thinnest phone cases I’ve ever seen and used. They add just the right amount of grip to your iPhone to help you avoid dropping it. These cases won’t help soften impact if you do happen to drop your phone, but for everyday wear and tear avoidance, they have your iPhone covered.

Price: $29.00

Platinum Genuine American Leather Folio Case for iPhone X

The Platinum Genuine American Leather Folio Case protects your iPhone X, front and back.  The phone is held in a hard PC shell for extra protection.  The interior is lined with microfiber, and the front flap has three card slots and a money pocket, so you can keep all your essentials with your iPhone X.  It’s slim and compact, for easy carrying.

Price: $49.99
Where you can buy one: Best Buy

Mujjo leather cases

I think of Mujjo cases as a Vaja (see above) alternative for people on a budget. They don’t offer a lot of color selections, but their cases are made very well, look great, and provide good protection for drops and everyday abuse.

iPhone X and iPhone 8 wireless chargers

Price range $50 – $100

Belkin BOOST UP Wireless Charging Pad

Wireless charging for iPhones has been a long time coming, but now that it’s finally here, you need a wireless charger like this one from Belkin. Once you have experienced wireless charging, you’ll wonder how you lived without it all these years.

Price: $59.99
Where you can buy one: Best Buy

TYLT ORB Wireless Charger

We haven’t had the opportunity to review this charger from TYLT, but we’ve reviewed some of their other wireless chargers in the past and I don’t have any problems recommending them for their design and functionality. This one is compatible with the new iPhone X and iPhone 8 devices and can fast charger newer Samsung Galaxy phones too.

Price: $49.99
Where you can buy one: TYLT

Price range $10 – $50

iOttie Easy One Touch 4 Wireless Qi Charging Station for the car

The iOttie Easy One Touch 4 Wireless Qi Charging Station for the car works with the new iPhone X, iPhone 8/8 Plus, and any other Qi-wireless enabled device between 2.3″-3.3″.  The One Touch lock-and-release mounting system lets you mount your device with a one-finger push.  It comes with a USB cable to provide power to the charger, plus a dashboard pad for mounting to most dashboards (probably not leather nor vinyl, though).  The telescopic arm allows you to adjust the angle to best see your screen.

Price: $49.95

iPhone screen protectors

Price range $10 – $50

Belkin InvisiGlass Ultra Screen Protection for iPhone X

Belkin InvisiGlass Ultra, made with Accessory Glass 2 by Corning, increases the scratch-resistance up to 3-5 times to protect your very expensive iPhone X.  A chemical Ion-Exchange process strengthens the ultra-thin (0.21mm) Aluminosilicate glass, so you’ll experience up to 25% increase in drop performance to prevent screen cracking or breakage.  And by the way, the Aluminosilicate glass is the same glass used in the windows of the space shuttles.

Price: $39.95

ZAGG InvisibleShield HD Glass+ Screen Protector

Another option to protect your iPhone’s display is the popular tempered glass protector from ZAGG which has IonMatrix technology for impact-resistant shatter protection.

Skinomi Tempered Tech Glass Screen Protector for Apple iPhone X

If you don’t want to spend $40 on a screen protector, you can be frugal and order a 3-pk of Skinomi protectors that have a 5-star rating on Amazon.
