10 LG G3 case offerings
You might be reluctant to hide the brushed rear looks of the LG G3 with a case, or add extra bulk to an already sizeable chassis, but LG's innovative original cover could very well dissuade to in your intent to use the flagship as raw as its manufacturer intended. The so-called QuickCircle is undoubtedly a great official case already, which offers unique features, and is tailor-made with the G3's features in mind. A variation of that case can even add wireless charging to the handset, if you are so inclined.
If you don't like LG's admittedly pricey offering, there are plenty of alternatives out there, in the form of cases, covers and folios currently available for the LG G3, to help with the wrappings, once the phone lands in your shaky hands. Some case manufacturers have started outing their own designs, which might not offer more features or fanciness, but are slimmer, and, most importantly, cheaper than the official LG accessory lineage. Check out some of the best cases and covers for the LG G3 in the slideshow below, and tell us which one would you pick, if you are the kind to wrap your precious phone in a stylish and/or protective second skin.

The QuickCircle case was made official before the LG G3 introduction even, hinting of a new interface design, and indeed those expectations materialized. Besides offering quick access to the information in your most used apps, like the call log, music player, or the messaging service, through a giant circular cutout in the case, it also glows around the circle's edge, and is available in a variety of different colors and texture finishes. It is available in a wireless charging form, too, though that one will cost you extra.
If the original QuickCircle case is not to your budget, alternatives like the Baseus Stand Case are starting to pop up for a lesser price tag. This one is with a soft microfiber exterior, and a durable back protection. Moreover, it doubles as a stand for your G3, as you can actually fold the front and flip it over to the back to prop the G3 while watching a video, for instance.
At $11, Spigen's matte hard case is one of your best bets for affordable G3 protection. It offers smooth matte surface made out of polycarbonate with urethane coating inside. It also sports an open design, with an easy access with large opening for ports, and a natural grip for better handling.
Want even more protection? Well, Spigen has you covered on that front as well, for a ten extra you can get a G3 case in its Slim Armor line, which features added "air cushion"protection, hard back, and a flexible TPU bumper for the hard landing scenarios. It, too, is available in several colors.
Available in 11 flashy colors, the Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit Case for LG G3 provides a simple impact damage resistance via the durable TPU material, and is easy to slip on or take off - an important feat for the largish handset.
Don't like the hard stuff? The Aura slim form-fitting wrapper is a simple jelly case with cutouts for all the G3 ports and slots, and extra texture on the back for a better grip. It comes in several hues, including the flashy pink you see here, and is at a rock bottom price of seven bucks, too.
Here's another affordable and simple form-fitting case. The Ringke Slim wraps around your LG flagship tightly, adding minimal bulk to an already large handset, and has a nice soft-touch texture that keeps it apart from the cheapo silicon gel covers, for a very comparable price.
Jonesing for a unibody aluminum design? Well, you won't find it in the G3, but the Verus Iron Shield offers the next best thing - an aluminum cover for the G2, with anti-shock soft core. It offers dual-layered protection, and still manages to stay slim, with colored rubberized edges for extra pizzazz.
Jonesing for something a bit more upscale than the cold, lifeless plastic derivatives above? This leather case brings the much needed human touch to technology, and is available in many color options - from the classis, to the flashy. It has pockets for your cards and bills inside, in addition to serving as a kickstand for enjoying the large 5.5" Quad HD display hands-free.
Want rugged protection for your G3 at a rock-bottom price? The Poetic Invictus is a hard-shell wrapper on a steep discount at the moment. Granted, it will add a fair amount of bulk to a big-screen phone, but the durable polycarbonate material with soft honeycomb-patterned lining will ensure the G3's protection from both external and internal elements.
