So, how much do you usually pay for a smartphone case?

Even if you don't use a case as a daily accessory, we're pretty sure that most people out there will have on hand just for the odd occasion. It may be a trip or a hike or any situation where one's phone is placed at a high risk of a drop over the cold and emotionless concrete.
And there are tons of cases to pick from. From the super-cheap with $1-$2 shells to official manufacturer skins that can set you back $50 or more, to insane collector-style cases that can go for more than $100.
Anyway, where do you sit? How much would you pay for the item that's supposed to prevent phone damages and actual expensive repairs?
How much do you spend on a smartphone case?
Up to $2, no more
I'd go as high as $10
$20 usually gets me a nice case
Up to $50 for the brand-name stuff
Up to $100 - I want a really, really nice case
I'd go $100+ for the right case

UAG cases have really good drop protection in my experience, and I personally like the design, although it may not be for everyone. That being said, does anyone know of a good case that includes a gap for the SIM card tray?

$20 is good enough. Anything higher is pushing it.

Ooh this is a hard poll. I prefer no more than $10 but sometimes the cases I want are a little more like 12-15, so I went with the $20 option.

Majority of android phones don’t have great case support, just the typical Chinese brands, and they usually are too flashy. So for them, maybe 10-15 avg. You have to buy a few to find one you like. I did buy the official saddle brown leather case for the 6s I used to have, I think around $45, but the quality and class was worth it. Being my first iPhone, it was next level.

Cant go wrong with tech21, they have good drop protection and a range of styles to match. But I also got a spigen liquid air armour and hybrid for my note8. I would roughly spend 20 to about 50 AUD for a good case.
