The HTC 10 has an all-metal body, dual-textured finish, chamfered contours, a curved edge display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and a $700 price tag. All of that, that $700 value, can be lost in just a moment, gone after a tumble down a flight of stairs, or after a fall from the roof of a car, or after one too many run-ins with any unyielding surface.

HTC offers owners of its flagship phones Uh-Oh Protection, one free wish for replacing a water-damaged or screen-shattered smartphone. It's a nice perk, but a decent case can help HTC 10 owners avoid having to ask HTC to grant the one-time replacement of a phone with a cracked screen.

Here are some of the best cases available for the HTC 10:

HTC Ice View - $49.99

From HTC and for the 10, this case carries its maker's mark and style. On top of that, it has a see-through cover that allows users to do things like snap photos without having to open the case.

Speck CandyShell Clear - $39.95

It's as clear as glass, but way more durable. This case lets the right type of light in with its UV-resistant build. It's also military-grade and certified to meet or exceed the standards set by the U.S. Air Force, Army and Navy.

Spigen Neo Hybrid - $34.99

Also meeting MIL-STD-810G is the Neo Hybrid Case that has a flexible polycarbonate and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) build with a textured back for improved grip.

Incipio DualPro - $29.99

This two-piece case has a polycarbonate frame and a shock-absorbing core. That's "two layers of interlocking defense" working to keep the HTC 10's condition from deteriorating to a 1 as a result of drops and general bang-ups.

Spigen Thin Fit - $14.99

This case has a thin build and a raised front, which keeps the face of HTC 10 handsets from touching whatever they're lying on.
