Hello, sports fans! I mean, Xperia XZ Premium fans! Today, we’re looking at some of the best cases and accessories available for this sparkling new phone, from budget options to premium upgrades. Let’s get right into it!
Part 1: Top 5 Xperia XZ Premium cases
1. Sony Style Cover Case - £27
We begin with our top choice, the Sony Style Cover. This case offers Sony’s signature style and class, with a slim design that fits the Xperia XZ Premium perfectly. The case is lightweight as well, adding the minimum of bulk to your shiny new smartphone with just enough protection to keep it safe. This particular case also comes with a built-in stand, allowing you to watch 4K HDR videos on the go – awesome!
2. StilGut Genuine Leather Flip Case - £30
The StilGut Genuine Leather Flip Case comes next. This is an alternative to our #1 pick, the official Sony Style Cover, with a similar flip design. The leather cover keeps your screen protected, potentially removing the need for a screen protector. The case also supports sleep / wake functionality as well, ensuring your phone is ready to go as soon as you open the cover. All in all, a top-notch case at a reasonable price for a genuine leather product.
3. Olixar ArmourDillo Case - £10
The Olixar ArmourDillo is a heavy-duty protective case, designed to keep your phone intact even in the face of drops, knocks and scratches. The case uses a dual-layer design for added protection, combining a lightweight TPU polymer with a tough polycarbonate exoskeleton. The textured back and sides of the case also make it easier to grip, preventing accidental drops. Finally, this case also comes with a flip-out stand, making it another good option for propping up your phone to watch videos, play games or just see incoming notifications as they arrive. For the price, this case is excellent.
4. Love Mei Powerful Case - £30
The Love Mei Powerful Case is made from strong aircraft-grade aluminium, providing incredible protection against drops, knocks and scratches. The case’s rugged impact truss design makes it incredibly resistant to damage with impressive rigidity, while a built-in screen protector prevents scratches. This case is bigger than its peers though, so you may need to use the provided lanyard loop if the phone gets too big to fit comfortably in your pockets. Still, this premium case looks pretty awesome and protects your phone well, so it may be worth it.
5. Olixar Ultra-Thin Clear Case - £8
The Olixar Ultra-Thin Case is a clear case, allowing you to protect your Xperia XZ Premium without obscuring it from view. The case is slim and light as the name suggests, ensuring you can still use your phone as you did before it had a case on. The phone includes some protective credentials as well, with a raised lip around the screen to protect it from scratches and a non-slip coating for extra grip. All in all, a great budget option for the Xperia XZ Premium.
Part 2: Top 5 Xperia XZ Premium accessories
1. Olixar Tempered Glass Screen Protector - £13
I see people every day that are miserably using phones with cracked screens. It’s an annoyance on your £40 burner phone, and an absolute tragedy on a £700 flagship like the Xperia XZ Premium. Save yourself from this fate with a £13 tempered glass screen protector. It’s easy to apply, lasts for a long time and will definitely save your phone from an ignoble end.
2. Olixar Premium HD Camera Lens Kit - £15
This premium camera lens kit is a perfect way to get the most out of the Xperia XZ Premium’s excellent front and rear cameras. These lenses are made of glass, provided a much clearer image than cheaper plastic alternatives. There are three lenses included: a 0.36x super wide angle lens, a 15x macro lens and a 180 degree fisheye lens. The simple clip-on design makes it easy to change lenses as needed, and a carry case and pouch is included. If you like taking photos and videos on your phone, you’ll love this lens upgrade.
3. Samsung 128GB EVO Plus Micro SD Card - £30
The Xperia XZ Premium comes with a Micro SD card slot, allowing you to inexpensively upgrade your total storage capacity. We’re recommending a 128GB Samsung Micro SD card for maximum capacity and excellent speed, but smaller and cheaper alternatives are widely available. Good brands to look out for are Samsung, Sandisk and Lexar.
4. Kidigi USB-C Desktop Dock - £25
This USB-C dock is simple, but it works well. Just pop your phone on the dock, and it’ll charge up while you work, play or sleep. The elevated position makes it easy to see incoming notifications, and the small size ensures portability for use on vacations and travel.
5. Samsung Micro USB to USB-C Adapter Triple Pack - £16
This adapter pack contains three of the small Micro USB to USB-C adapters shown above. The idea here is that you can use your Micro USB accessories - docks, chargers, car holders and the like - with the USB-C port of the Xperia XZ Premium. If you don’t want to upgrade all of your equipment to the new USB-C standard, this is a great interim solution.
