The LG V30 might just be the most underrated phone released in 2017 — if you bought one, you know all about it. With waterproofing and wireless charging capabilities it's got all the hottest features, but it's also made of glass on both sides so you're going to want a case to help keep it free from scratches and other damage.
Here are some of the best cases you'll find for the LG V30.
- Spigen Rugged Armor Case
- SUPCASE Full-body Rugged Holster Case
- Zizo Bolt Series case w/ kickstand
- UAG Plasma Series Case
- LK Ultra Slim Thin Case
- Ringke Fusion Case
- Tridea Power Guard

Spigen Rugged Armor Case
Looking for a sleek case that offers great protection? You want the Spigen Rugged Armor case for your LG V30. Made from TPU material with a matte finish and carbon fiber detailing, this case looks slick and keeps your phone protected without adding much bulk. Wireless charging will still work with this case on, and precise cutouts around the fingerprint scanner and dual-camera setup around back ensure that all the phones functionality is unimpeded.
Spigen's Rugged Armor case is my go-to choice for any phone I've owned, so it comes highly recommended for any new device. If you want to keep your phone protected while keeping it looking sleek and thin — all for just $13.
SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle PRO Series Case
Some cases claim to be rugged, but few live up to the name quite like SUPCASE. The Unicorn Beetle PRO Series is tough as hell, designed for heavy users and those who love to take their phone into the great outdoors.
Made of a combination of premium TPU and PC materials and includes ports to block dust and debris from getting in — the phone already has IP68 water resistance and dust-proofing, but redundancy is always a good thing. It also comes with a swiveling belt clip and holster, if you're into that look. You can pre-order yours today for just $18.
Zizo Bolt Series case w/ kickstand
Zizo's Bolt Series case is a rugged case option for your V30 that offers a slew of features at a budget price. Designed to precisely fit the V30 with a combination of soft, shock-absorbing TPU on the inside and a polycarbonate shell on the outside, this case will protect your phone from drops and scratches along with a built-in kickstand and an optional belt clip holster.
Zizo also goes one step further and includes a screen protector with each of its cases so your screen will stay protected, too. Get the Zizo Bolt Series case in your choice of five colors for just $18.
UAG Plasma Series Case
Some cases are simply iconic, and it's fair to say that the Urban Armor Gear's Plasma series is one of those.
Part clear case and part rugged protection, UAG never compromises on the construction of its cases— despite the premium materials and heavy-duty design, the case remains feather-light with thoughtful design elements like non-slip rubberized edges so your phone will never slip off a table when you put it down.
It's passed military-grade drop-test standards, but you probably won't be dropping it too often thanks to all the textures for your fingertips to cling to. You can get the premium Plasma Series case for a premium price from UAG's website — yours for just $30.
Ringke Fusion Case
The Ringke Fusion case blends rugged design features with a sleek and clear case that lets the LG V30's design shine through.
This case combines a tough polycarbonate back plate with a soft and shock-absorbing TPU bumper. There are dust caps over the charging port and the headphone, and you can get yours as a crystal clear case, or with rose gold or black accents. This case starts at just $11 on Amazon, so it's also a great budget case option.
LK Ultra Slim Thin Case
If you're planning to get plenty of use out of the LG V30's wireless charging capabilities but still want to keep things protected with a case, you may want to consider the LK Ultra Slim Thin case.
At only $8, it's super affordable and available in your choice of classic black, clear, or a purple or mint-green tint. It's your standard, minimalist thin case, that offers decent protection without adding any bulk to your phone. It's got an anti-slip finish to it, too, so your phone won't slide anywhere if you put it down.
Tridea Power Guard
Feeling bored of the plasticky finish of most phone cases? Why not add a touch of class to your LG V30 with this stylish and slim leather case from Tridea.
Made of flexible and shock absorbent TPU, this case is rugged around the edges of your phone to provide great drop protection while changing things up around the back with a more stylish finish. There are protective lips around the screen and the camera on the back to keep those important glass bits protected, and on the inside of the case, you'll find a hiding space for a credit card.
It's available in both a brown synthetic leather look as well as black with a carbon fiber-style finish and both look pretty great! Get yours for just $10.
Tauri Wallet Case
A folio wallet case is a great option for two reasons: it offers superior protection for your phone's screen, and also lets you ditch your traditional wallet by offering slots for cards and cash on the inside portion of the front cover.
If you're after a wallet case for the LG V30 case you'll want to consider the Tauri wallet case. It's got a no-frills design made of synthetic leather with a magnetic clasp to keep everything closed when it's not in use. It includes a see-through slot for your ID on the inside and ample cutouts around the fingerprint sensor and camera on the back.
Available in black or rose gold, get this case for just $10 and ditch your ratty old wallet!
