The Best Smartphone Cases: Ballistic SG Maxx Series for HTC One

My girlfriend is looking for a new phone, and she’ll be using it outdoors a lot this summer. Which one has the most protective case available?

The HTC One, which came out in March, has a strong aluminum case, but that’s no match for drops on hard ground. The SG Maxx Series swaddles the latest HCT phone/tablet like an onion—with a hard, transparent screen protector outside, a polycarbonate shell in the middle, and a soft silicon inner layer that absorbs impacts. It all hooks to a holster with a swivel clip, and you can get it in any color you want as long as it’s black.

Price: $50
