You've laid out a lot of cash for that gorgeous new iPhone XR. You want to keep it safe and looking pristine, but you don't want to spend a lot of money to do so (you've already spent so much money as it is!). Or maybe you like having several different cases to swap out for different looks, and you don't want to break the bank. Either way, here are some of our favorite cheap cases for the iPhone XR.

Spigen Neo HybridNeo Hybrid

Price + quality

Spigen is a longtime favorite brand; its mix of price and quality can't be beaten. You can't go wrong with any of its cases, but the Neo Hybrid has an unusual and masculine look. The shade shown here is Gunmetal; also available in two other shades, Jet Black and Satin Silver.

Spigen Liquid Crystal

Sparkle time

I love this sparkly number from Spigen. It's a simple, flexible TPU case for slim protection. If this Glitter Rose Quartz isn't your shade, you can pick up the Glitter Crystal Quartz or Crystal Clear instead.

Silk Grip Case

Kung-fu grip

The Silk Grip Case is designed for — you guessed it — grip. The soft case has textured sides so that it won't fall out of your hands. It comes in several colors, and you can choose from several fun patterns for customization. Bonus: a screen protector is included.

SURPHY Silicone Case

Apple dupe

Modeled after Apple's iconic silicone case, this one is similarly lined with microfiber. I like that SURPHY put the branding on the inside of the case, and it comes in a handful of appealing colors.

ESR Marble Case

Old meets new

Blending the old world look of marble with the newest tech is a fun juxtaposition. This flexible TPU case from ESR gives your phone a different look without breaking the bank. It comes in three shades of Sierra "marble," Black, Gray Gold, and White

The Sonix brand cases are sold at high-end department stores. That being said, the reviews also tell us this is a high-end case. It comes in tons of fun colors and patterns but don't let the cute looks fool you. It's military drop-test certified to 6.6 feet.

SKTGSLAMY TPU Case

Basic cheapie

This is your absolute basic TPU case. It's clear, flexible, protective, and cheap. You can see the color of your iPhone XR through the case. No bells or whistles on this one, which is sort of the point

Cheap doesn't mean second-rate

Just because your case is cheap, it doesn't have to be simple. Well, it can be if that's what you like. But there are lots of options here without spending lots of money. I'd go for the Sonix Case. It doesn't skimp on quality or protection.
