This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in April of 2016. When shopping for a phone case, the two things that matter most are style and resilience, but it can be hard to find one that gets both of these right. Wooden cases tend to sacrifice hardiness for the sake of looks, and they are, indeed, good looking. This list of protectors includes some with flair that also keep your Android device or iPhone safe from scratches, dings, and falls.

Editor's Notes

August 01, 2019:

Few phone-related items garner as much attention and compliments as a good-looking wooden case. Because they run more expensive than counterparts made of synthetic materials, they are still relatively rare. Almost everyone has a phone case, but one made of wood is an attention grabber. Especially if you choose one that features artistic etching, such as the Carved Luxury Traveler. It's hard to go wrong with its handcrafted designs which make each case distinctive.

We like the ones with textured edges because they offer a better grip than those without. For this reason plus its low price tag and simple aesthetic appeal, we bumped the Jubeco Slim to one of our top slots.

July 25, 2019:

When buying a wooden case, one thing to bear in mind is your personal experience with your device. If you don't frequently drop it and just need something to protect from standard wear and tear, then opting for cheaper cases is a great idea. You'll save money, and you can still find fantastic items like the Tendlin Silicone Hybrid. The fact that it's flexible makes it easy to remove, which means you can clean it more often. More cleaning means fewer scratches, which is always nice. If, however, you tend to find your phone on the floor more often than you'd like, then the higher end products are worth every penny. The Carved Luxury Traveler provides the aesthetics and bulk that only the higher end brands can offer. It can be a steep up-front cost, but it's preferable to breaking an expensive flagship.
