The best cases for the LG V30

The LG V30 is still a pretty enticing phone, and whether you just recently bought it or have been rocking it since it first came out, there’s one thing we can all agree on — it’s a phone that needs a case. The glass back may look great, but it’s also a slippery mess that’s just asking to be shattered at any given moment. Need some recommendations on what case you should buy? Here are our favorites.

Can’t be beat

Spigen Neo Hybrid

Staff pick

If you follow AC, you know we’re big fans of Spigen’s Neo Hybrid case. And you know what? Who wouldn’t be? Its dual-layer design allows for great protection with shock absorbing tech, in addition to looking really sleek with its Satin Silver paint job. It’s also not too thick and fits the V30 like a glove.

While not as flashy as the Neo Hybrid, Spigen’s Tough Armor case is another worthy contender for your LG V30. Available in two colors (Gunmetal and Black), the Tough Armor consists of a TPU cover and PC back to offer maximum coverage. We especially like the kickstand on the back that works great for hands-free use.

Clear and rugged hybrid

I-Blason Magma Series

We love unique cases, and for the LG V30, one that stands out is the I-Blason Magma Series. While this is technically a clear case at heart, there’s also a textured and durable TPU bumper surrounding the V30 that keeps it safe from all kinds of accidents. The four striking color options are just icing on an already great cake.

It’s an OtterBox

OtterBox Defender Series

OtterBox is one of the best-known names in the case business, and of all the products it makes, few are as popular as the Defender Series. The multi-layer design means the V30 is safe and sound from pretty much anything, there’s a belt-clip holster that doubles as a kickstand, and a free lifetime warranty.

Light as a feather

UAG Plasma

The UAG Plasma is pretty incredible. Why? It offers tremendous military-grade protection for the V30 while retaining a profile that’s slim and lightweight. This is achieved thanks to the unique honeycomb design, and the end result is a case with that’s really spectacular no matter how you dice it. It is expensive, but it’s well worth the asking price.

Add some grip

Speck Presidio Grip

If we had to choose

There are a lot of great cases for the LG V30, but if it was my money, one of the first ones I’d pick up is the Spigen Neo Hybrid. Between the thin profile, ample protection, and striking design, there’s something about this case that just speaks to me. And, for the price, you just can’t beat it.

Another case I really like is the Anccer Colorful Series. As someone who can’t stand big, bulky cases, having something this thin is kind of a dream come true. It may not be the most durable option out there, but for people that just need a little bit of coverage without compromising the V30’s slim form factor, it’s a great choice.

Lastly, if you’re looking for a case that’s more rugged and durable than the average bear, I’d recommend picking up the UAG Plasma or I-Blason Magma Series.
