I like to collect phone cases. I see them as an extension of my style, and I often switch them out to match my outfits, the season, or whatever suits my fancy. They’re a great way to show off my personality in a device that’s integral to our everyday lives.
But, I am also an Android user. Moreover, I use a less popular Android phone, an LG G4. I don’t have any thoughtful reason for using it over iOS, except that I’ve had Android phones for so long that I’m more comfortable with the platform. I also get free Play Store credit through Google Rewards which is hard to pass up. I basically get paid apps and Miitomo coins for free!
So there comes the dilemma for me. I want all the cute cases, but my phone isn’t popular enough for me to just buy them anywhere. Yes, I do feel a tinge of jealousy when I see iPhone and Galaxy cases at a Walgreens, and none for my LG.
The good news is cute phone cases for Android phones do exist. It only takes a little shopping and a bit of patience. To illustrate, I purchased at least one case from the following stores. They offer cases for all sorts of models, so even if you have an obscure model, you’re likely to find a case or two!
Amazon is my go-to for cheap and cute cases. You don’t need Prime membership since you’d most likely be ordering from an Asian seller. They usually take a few weeks to ship to you, but that’s in exchange for affordable prices. Nearly all of my old HTC One cases were from Amazon. My favorite was my blue Hello Kitty case. I got it for cheap, but it’s sooo cute and it protected my phone.
Amazon also sells some higher-end cases for most Android flagships. I purchased a white Spigen thin case for my current LG G4. It has a very low footprint, so it almost feels like my phone is wearing nothing. And it feels really good in the hand.
If you have a more obscure Android model, you can try your luck with Ali Express. They have filters to help you narrow down your phone by brand such as Huawei, Lenovo, ZTE, OPPO, and much more. Love it.
I ordered my super adorable pink bunny case from a seller in China for just a few bucks! It took a few weeks to get here, but I had free buyer’s insurance which made me feel more confident about the purchase. As always, you should use common sense before buying. Make sure you read the seller’s reviews and ensure that the listing has accurate pictures. I always pass on listings that lack pictures and information.
My favorite by far! Casetify makes designer fashion cases for Android flagships. You can also design a customized case with your Instagram pictures. I ordered two designer cases for the spring and summer, and the print quality on the clear cases are great. They’re just so beautiful to look at and hold. My pink floral case perfectly matched my spring pictures. I killed last season’s aesthetic.
For my phone, they only offered snap-on cases which doesn’t offer much protection. I have to be extra careful with my phone, but my pink floral case is so pretty, I miss it when it’s not on.
Ebay is another go-to site for purchasing hard-to-find items. A majority of the listings for phone cases seem to be posted on Amazon as well, but if you look enough, you’ll find some good ones.
I’ve purchased several vintage clothes from sellers with good experience, so I felt confident when I ordered a high-quality Molang case from a seller in Korea. It arrived here a little over a week later. It’s well-made and super cute to boot! I ended up ordering another one because I love it so much.
Shop Trokm is a case store with an impressive list of available models. Looking at their dropdown menu lists out so many phones, this site is a good bet to find a case for you!
I ordered this gorgeous boho swirl case in black to go with my white plate (my phone has a removable back, I have both white and gold plates ). I used this case when I had back-to-back trips last year, and it protected my phone from so many falls. I tend to drop my phone a lot when I’m traveling alone. Carrying luggage by myself while trying to find my Uber ride can get chaotic. I even dropped my phone on concrete once (welp), and this case left my phone unscathed. I love it so much.
Show me yours!
