It's super important to make sure that any phone that you buy nowadays is protected, whether that means with a skin, case, or anything else that you want to use to keep your hard-earned dollars protected. With the number of smartphones that we have had our hands on over the years, we have tried even more cases to see which you should consider keeping your phone safe. With the Nokia 4.2, this device has become increasingly popular due to its low price point and solid performance in a gorgeous package.
Old-school Android users will remember the hay-days of Cruzerlite and their awesome Bugdroid cases. The company is not as popular as it once was but still makes some solid cases for an array of devices, including the Nokia 4.2. This TPU case sports a carbon fiber and leather texture, keeping your device free from fingerprints while ensuring it doesn't fall from your hands.
Show it off
What's the point of buying a flashy new phone if you just plan to hide it beneath a case? The TiYa Clear TPU case makes it so that you can show off the Nokia 4.2 in all of its glory. The four corners of the case are a bit thicker than the rest of the case to keep your phone safe from accidental drops.
Flexible and protective
Big and bulky cases can be rather frustrating and end up adding to much heft to your phone. This slim case from MAIKEZI solves that by both offering a slim design, along with being made from TPU. The combination of flexible, slim, and protective can't be overstated, plus DagoRoo offers a 60-day warranty on its case.
Minimal with perfect cutouts
The Tianyd Ultra-thin cover almost feels like a skin, and it has precise cutouts so that you will still have access to all of the buttons on your Nokia 4.2. In addition to offering a bit more protection than a skin, the case comes in six different colors to choose from.
Some folks out there don't want a boring old case with a basic color. Instead, they want a design to accentuate the phone, along with adding some personality. This TPU case from Starhemei comes in either a Penoy or Rose pattern, along with being clear so that you can still see the phone itself.
Fashionable and functional
Wallet cases are vastly underrated, and the FirstCover Premium Leather Wallet for the Nokia 4.2 is a great way to stop carrying too many items. The case sports three card slots, along with a pocket for any cash or receipts. As an added bonus, FirstCover includes a free screen protector, and a wrist strap to make carrying your phone easier.
Keep it in your hand
Popsockets are all the craze now that are phones are getting larger, making them more difficult to handle. With a case like the 8Wireless Rotating Ring Case, you won't need to worry about installing a Popsocket, as there is a rotating ring built-in.
Rugged and shockproof
There are some folks out there who just can't handle having a lightweight or ultra-thin case on their phones. That's where options such as the LiuShan Shockproof Case comes into play with its dual-layer design. The case even includes a built-in kickstand so you can prop up the Nokia 4.2 to watch your favorite Disney+ show.
