Need a very cheap case? This slim option won’t add a lot of bulk to this petite phone, and it won’t take a big bite out of your paycheck, either. Overall, this is a solid option to consider.

3. Best iPhone SE Wallet Case: Ionic Pro Apple iPhone SE Wallet Case
This wallet case offers card storage for three cards, plus a slot to stash your currency or receipts. The folio flap protects the screen, making this a nice style of case for those who often keep their phone in a bag or backpack where it might scratch up against other items.
We recommend using a screen protector with these types of wallet cases, since the cards in the front flap come into contact with the display.
Price: $9.85 (75 percent off MSRP)
4. Best Water-Resistant iPhone SE Case: SUPCASE Water Resistant Case With Built-in Screen Protector for Apple iPhone SE
Waterproof and water-resistant cases are usually hard to find shortly after a new phone has been announced. One option we recommend from the slim pickings currently on the market is the SUPCASE model above. While not waterproof enough to allow submerging, it is water-resistant enough to provide protection against minor splashes and drops of water. We also love the interchangeable back plates, which let you switch up your look.
5. Best Clear iPhone SE Case: Ringke Fusion Crystal Clear iPhone 5SE Case
Many iPhone owners prefer clear cases because they let you show off your new phone. You can really see the color, the lines, and the markings on the rear of the device with a clear-backed case. These cases from Ringke in totally clear options, as well as translucent cases with just a pinch of color. If you’re looking for a similar clear case, we also like this option from Trianium, though they are slightly more expensive as of this writing.
