The best Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact cases

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is a small phone living in a big phone’s world. Despite its pint-sized form factor, it’s a great phone with impressive specs. We’ve rounded up the best cases available for the Xperia XZ2 Compact so you can keep your new phone safe from harm.

Slim protection

Spigen Rugged Armor


Staff pick

From Spigen comes the Rugged Armor case, which is my go-to recommendation for pretty much any phone out there.
This case tops all my lists because it’s thin and lightweight while offering the protection you need with extra attention paid to the corners. The carbon fiber accents at the top and bottom look great paired with the matte finish of the rest of the case.

A classy option

32nd Classic Series Folio Wallet


32nd Shop makes their wallet cases with genuine leather paired with a soft satin finish on the inside. That’s where you’ll find card slot and a pocket for stashing cash and receipts. The case doesn’t impede the functionality of the phone at all with the front cover protecting the display better than any other case on this list.

Thin and transparent

AVIDET Crystal Clear


For fans of minimalist cases, the AVIDET clear case is an enticing option. It’s a thin and flexible TPU case that lets the full look and design of your phone shine right through while protecting it from drops. Precise cutouts around the charging ports, camera sensors, and fingerprint sensor ensure all features of your phone are accessible.

Get some color

Anccer Colorful Series


Anccer consistently offers one of the thinnest snap-on cases for phones. This case is precisely designed to hug to the sides of your phone adding an ultra-thin skin of rigid plastic to protect your Xperia XZ2 Compact. Choose from seven color options and enjoy your protected phone without dealing with a bulky mess.

A case and screen protector

UPONEW Leather Protector


This case is made of one solid piece of flexible TPU with a textured back that looks and feels like leather. The case alone would be a good value, but you also get two tempered glass screen protectors included to sweeten the deal, along with all the necessary installation tools.

Minimalist views with serious protection

Olixar Bumper Case


This case is ridiculously rugged with a beefy bumper providing ample protection for your Xperia XZ2 Compact, while also including a clear panel on the back that lets you still see your phone. It’s a snap-on shell that’s backed by a two-year warranty from Olixar.

Heavy duty protection

LOVE MEI Aluminum Shockproof Case


One of the benefits of a smaller phone is that bulky, heavy-duty cases won’t make your phone so unwieldy to hold. Crafted from aluminum and silicone with a built-in screen protector, this case from LOVE MEI is as rugged a case as you’ll find — you literally need to screw the case sealed. Extreme shock protection combined with dust and waterproofing for the ultimate case that’s available in five color styles

Psychadelic style

Head Case Designs Rainbow Iridiscent Marble Case


Cases don’t have to be boring to protect your phone. Head Case Designs offers some outlandish and psychedelic looks for your XZ2 Compact with a standard hard snap-on case design that’s lightweight and ultra-thin. You get a front lip that provides some protection for the display, but ultimately you’re going to get this case because of its looks more than anything else.

One of a kind

kwmobile Wood Case


Not all cases are made of synthetic materials. If you’re looking for a case that really stands out kwmobile offers a case made of actual wood. They also lasercut an Indian Sun design on the back which looks great and also gives your hand low key edges to grip. This is truly a one of a kind case for your Xperia XZ2 Compact.

Don’t chance it — get a case on that phone!

If you picked up the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact odds are you did so because you liked the smaller design of the phone, and for that, we can appreciate all the slim case options available for it.

Our top recommendation is the Spigen Rugged Armor. I love the lightweight design that Spigen uses, and the Rugged Armor lives up to its name by providing ample protection for your phone, especially in the corners where it matters the most.

If you’re a fan of minimalism, but you still want to add some color to your phone, the Anccer Color Series is calling your name. These ultra-thin cases snap right onto the back of your phone, protecting against drop damage.
