If you just picked up an LG V40, you’re probably chomping at the bit to start messing around with your new phone. We don’t blame you, but before you get too far ahead of yourself, you should probably pick up a case to protect the handset before anything bad happens, especially since its glass back makes it more prone to cracks and scratches. If you do, here are the ones you should consider getting.

Slim, stylish, protective

Dretal Shock Resistant Case

Dretal makes great cases for just about every phone, and with the V40, that’s no different. Dretal’s case comes in five striking colors, features a durable TPU material, and has a stylish design that’s both slim and shockproof.

Leather wallet case

Free-Case Leather Wallet Case

What’s better than a wallet case? A wallet case made out of genuine leather! This case has an incredibly sleek design, can hold both cards and cash, and can be used to prop up the V40 for impromptu video streaming.

Hey good looking

Ringke Fusion-X

Ringke’s Fusion-X is just about one of the coolest V40 cases you’ll find. It’s clear design and TPU bumpers not only look great but also keep your handset safe against whatever you throw at it (or you throw it at) thanks to a MIL-STD 810G military grade certification.

Clear and simple

Ringke Fusion

The V40 is a gorgeous phone, and if you don’t want to cover up its beauty, Ringke’s Fusion case will keep it safe while also still allowing you to flaunt the V40’s good looks. There’s a dual-layer design and bumpers on all four corners for maximum safety.

LG really did knock it out of the park with the V40’s design, but even so, it’s not worth carrying the phone naked to end up dropping it and smashing its gorgeous glass back (or front). If you want to keep its natural beauty intact, the Ringke Fusion is a great choice. Otherwise, you can’t go wrong with the Dretal Shock Resistant Case or Free-Case Leather Wallet Case.
