Your new phone is a fashion statement in its own right - and an expensive one at that. Protect it with a case that’s as tough as it is stylish.

While the case is fitted you can still access all phone features. Cases are available from Carphone Warehouse and EE, and tech21.com and some Apple stores, priced £29.95.
