Time was, the world needed protecting from your mobile: one drop of a Nokia could see a patio in pieces.
Alas, today’s crop of metal-and-glass phablets are a far cry from the tough tech of old – and LG's newest flagship is no exception.
Sure, the G5’s aluminium unibody shell is hardly flimsy – but it’s nothing a few meetings with the pavement couldn’t punish.
Fear not, though, because Stuff has scoured the internet in search of the best cases for your brand-spanking G5. You can thank us later.
Official LG G5 Quick Cover case (₹2463)
A case so good that LG revealed it before the phone it's made for, the Quick Cover is a nifty G5 wrapper that keeps those always-on essentials just a glance away - courtesy of a convenient cutout. What's more, its semi-transparent mesh construction means you can swipe-to-answer without even opening it.
Patchworks Flexguard case (₹1642)
Suffering from sweaty-pawed excitement at the sight of your new G5? Add some extra grip to its 7.7mm-slim shell with Patchworks' Flexguard case. Its rear panel is textured for non-slip style, while the case itself has both an impact-absorbent structure and reinforced corners, so no more crying over cracked glass.
Caseology Skyfall case (₹1478)
Hide your G5 in plain sight with Caseology's shock-absorbent Skyfall case. A clear rear keeps your swanky smartphone on show, while the black polycarbonate bumper banishes drop-induced cracks. What's more, a well-placed portal means you'll still be able to stick your digits on the G5's fingerprint scanner.
BELK Premium Folio Flip Case (₹749 approx)
Aluminium is all well and good, but we do miss the leather rear of the LG G4. Thankfully, you can now re-live the cow-clad glory days with your G5 guilt-free, courtesy of this PU leather folio case from Belk. Complete with a couple of card slots and a cash compartment, this slim second-skin is a perfect backup if Android Pay goes awry.
Official LG G5 Cam Plus module (₹6500)
OK, so it's closer to half a case - but this insert for your new mobile's modular bottom will boost the G5's battery by 1200mAh, put specific camera keys (including a scroll wheel) under your fingertips, and add happy-snapping comfort courtesy of a padded grip. What more could you want?
