Nobody’s perfect. Blame it on Mercury in retrograde or your last margarita, but most folks have dropped their phones at one point or another. Sometimes we get lucky and our phones come away without a scratch, but other times the slip can set you back hundreds of bucks. For a gadget as important and expensive to replace as your smartphone, you’ll want a case that not only keeps your device protected, but also makes your phone less likely to leave your hand in the first place. Don’t let gravity get the better of you—here are some great grippy cases to get you started on your search.

The belt holster also functions as a kickstand for hands-free use. It’s difficult to break a phone that’s in an OtterBox.
This LeYi case is specifically designed for the iPhone 11 and is non-slip, shockproof, and scratch-resistant.

Despite its strong protective layer, the case is not clunky and provides easy access to the charger port. For a surprisingly low price, this attractive case is a great option, though it is unfortunately not compatible with wireless chargers.
