The new iPhone SE makes for the perfect device for those who’d prefer it to be of more manageable size. With a 4-inch display, the iPhone SE can be just right for one-handed operation besides being pocket-friendly as well.
The device is also quite a looker even though it shares a lot of similarity with the iPhone 5S, what with that superb metal clad rear with the Apple logo occupying pride of place. Unfortunately, it can’t be kept as such and has to be encased in a protective covering to ensure no unwanted scratches marring the beautiful metal surface.
Presented here are a few cases that not only add a protective covering to the iPhone SE but also add to its appeal as well.
Perhaps the biggest plus with the X-Doria cases is that it carries the same look as the iPhone itself, complete with the Apple logo along with the iPhone badge at the rear. Much of that owes it to the use of the same color options as Silver, Space Gray, Gold and Rose Gold for the cases which happens to be the same as the iPhone model itself.
Color apart, the cases are made of anodized aluminum with a soft TPU covering for enhanced protection. Also, of course, the case provides access to all ports and buttons in the most unhindered manner.
