Best cases for the Sony Xperia XZ2

Sony launched its Xperia XZ2 flagship back at MWC 2018, finally moving on from the dated OmniBalance design language to produce a phone with an all-glass exterior and a fingerprint reader on the curved rear panel that actually works in the US! While the move to all-glass design is a positive step by Sony, it does mean that the curved rear glass panel is more than a little slippery. You’ll want to slap a case on the phone without delay both to protect it from scratches as well as making sure it stays where you put it to rest. So join us after the break to check out the great cases we’ve found for the Sony Xperia XZ2.

Style Cover Touch

Kicking off the list is the Style Cover Touch case from Sony that features a transparent front flap that lets you touch, tap, and scroll your way through your smartphone functions while the display remains protected. Designed by Sony, the case has a minimal profile and fits snugly around the Xperia XZ2, with accurate cutouts for the camera, fingerprint reader, charging port and control buttons. The Style Touch Cover case is available from MobileFun in Grey, Pink, Green, and Black for $50.49.
