What are the best cases you can buy for the Huawei Mate 9?

The Huawei Mate 9 is a big phone, but just because it's well-made — full of precisely-machined metal and Gorilla Glass — doesn't mean it is unbreakable. If you're concerned about damaging this new-to-the-U.S. smartphone, here are some picks for the best cases you can buy right now.

Ringke Fusion Bumper Case

Get that brand new flagship into some covering — stat! If you're buying the Huawei Mate 9 from Amazon, add the Ringke Fusion Bumper Case to your cart. This particular case adds a bit of thickness to the Mate 9 so that there's ample space between the phone and what it's laying on. It also features a couple of elements that other cheap cases don't typically include, like covering for the headphone jack and charging port. It comes in four color varieties.

Vinve Ultra Slim Hard Cover

I am obsessed with cases sporting a built-in phone stand like the one featured on the Vinve Ultra Slim Hard Cover case. Not only is it shaped like a bear, but you can hook your fingers through it so that the Huawei Mate 9 doesn't slip out of your hand and fall to the floor. The case is available in chic black or rosy pink.

Spigen Rugged Armor Case

Give the Huawei Mate 9 that carbon fiber appeal with the rugged armor case from Spigen. The case is made of flexible plastic and features an interior spider-web pattern for a neat design effect. It also comes with a raised lip that keeps the screen from touching the ground when it's laying down. At present, the rugged armor case is only available in black.
