21 Cool and Funky iPhone Cases

Updated on April 11, 2013

Fancy a new iPhone case?

Do you fancy a new iPhone case? Maybe you're bored of the old one. Are you looking for something a bit more funky to cover your iPhone?

I know the feeling. You're sick of looking at the same, old thing on your iPhone. You just really fancy a change, but you can't decide just what to change it to! Well, with my list of cool and funky iPhone cases, you can't possibly go wrong!

If you're looking for a cool and funky iPhone case, then check out my list of 21 Cool and Funky iPhone Cases!

Why buy an iPhone case?

You've just bought an iPhone. It's cost several hundred dollars and you'd ideally like to preserve its value for as long as possible. In order to look after your iPhone properly, the best thing to do is buy a case for it.

Here are just some of the advantages of using an iPhone case to protect your phone.

1. It will prevent scratches and marks

Scratches on the back of your iPhone aren't so bad, but scratches on the screen are awful for most people, especially if the scratch is quite big. If you're worried about scratches on the screen of your iPhone, buy a case which closes to cover the whole of your phone. This is probably the most protective cases you can buy. I used to have a case like that and they're great for protecting the whole phone.

Apart from that, other phone cases only protect the back. The back of your phone is more likely to get scratched than the front, so a case which only covers the back is fine for most people. Most of the cases featured on this page cover only the back of your phone.

2. It will preserve the value

If you're the kind of person who likes to upgrade their phone every 1-2 years, you might be considering selling on your iPhone after you've had enough of it. Although you'll never get the full amount you paid, you can still get a couple of hundred dollars for a used iPhone in good condition. If it's free from any marks and scratches and has been well looked after, buyers will be prepared to pay those extra few dollars that could make all the difference to you.

3. It will make your phone look better

Many people use an iPhone case simply because they think it makes their phone look better. For a lot of people, an expensive case or unique case is something they can show off to friends.

# 21: Otterbox Defender Case - Pink and Black

In my opinion, all the defender cases are really cool and funky! Some people think they're too chunky, but I definitely think they're more funky than chunky.

A good thing about having a more chunky case is that it'll protect your phone against all kinds of things, including being dropped on the floor and knocked about.

Oh, and an added bonus: they offer great protection for your iPhone.

#20: Hello Kitty! - With rhinestone crystal jewels

For all those Hello Kitty fans out there, this is the perfect iPhone case for you. How could you not love it? You will definitely be the centre of attention with this cool iPhone case!

This iPhone case is a cute, sparkly and very girly accessory. Something like this also makes a great birthday present for young girls or even older teenage girls who like Hello Kitty.

#19: Zebra Print

If you're one of those "mad-about-zebra-print" people, then you should definitely get your hands on one of these cool cases.

An extremely inexpensive option, particularly good if you just want to build up a nice collection of different iPhone cases so you can swap your cases around every day.

#18: Doggy Paw Prints

Calling all doggy lovers out there! This iPhone case is incredibly cute, cool and funky. If you're a doggy lover, you will not want to miss this great bargain.

The Flexi rubber makes it really easy to get your phone in and out of this case. With some of the harder cases, it's difficult to actually get your phone in there, and then it's always a lot of hassle trying to get it back out again. With rubber, you can move it around to fit around your phone without worrying about breaking the case.

Made of Flexi Rubber!

#17: Bunny Rabbit

Aww, this iPhone case is what you call super-duper cute, cool and funky! If you thought the dog paw prints case was cute, look at this one! (it just gets better and better.)

With its cute rabbit ears sticking up, how could you resist?

Oh! Look at that! Just when you thought it couldn't get any better - there's a FURRY rabbit tail too, which can be used as a stand.

It's also available in blue, so if you're not too keen on the colour pink, search Amazon for the blue version.

#16: Red Great Shield

This iPhone case is cool, funky and it will stand out for all your friends to admire. This one (unlike the one with bunny ears) is suitable for both men and women.

Although it might seem plain, not everybody wants a flashy case that draws attention to your phone. Business people, secretaries, and other people in professions certainly want a somewhat discreet iPhone case. For example, a lawyer doesn't want a case with pawprints or bunny ears.

This iPhone case is perfect for those who would like a plain case with colour.

#15: Pink Pink Pink!

One for the girls here! If you're looking for something that's really girly, really cool and really funky, then why not grab yourself one of these great iPhone cases?

Very affordable, protects your iPhone, and will stand out a mile with its gorgeous hot pink colour.

#14: Purple Rhinestones

Looking for something purple? Looking for something with jewels on it? Looking for something snazzy, cool and funky to show off?

This is definitely a great birthday present for teenage girls. There are several phone cases on Amazon which are filled with gems and sparkles, so if you're looking for another colour in particular, search Amazon and see what you can find.

Grab yourself a bargain with this cool iPhone case!

#13: Hearts and Butterflies

Want to spread the lurrve with this sweet, cool and funky iPhone case? Lightweight and beautiful, this iPhone case is the perfect accessory for any girl who likes to show off.

This isn't as jazzy and bright as the hot pink case or the case with purple rhinestones, but the design is eye-catching and likely to be a hit with many girls.

Oh, and it's got butterflies on it as well. Aww!

#12: Which Animal is it?

For all the animal and nature and wildlife lovers out there, why not pick up one of these cool iPhone cases? With all the different animal fur all on one iPhone case, you'll never be able to choose which one is your favourite!

#11: Fireworks - Happy New Year!

With this cool, funky iPhone accessory, you don't have to wait till New Year for the fireworks. Grab a bargain with this iPhone sticker - I can almost completely guarantee that you will be the only one among your friends with an iPhone cover like this!

A case like this also makes a great Christmas present as the New Year approaches. If you like to have many cases rather than just one, this is one to add to your collection for the special occasions.

#10: Case-Mate Pop! - Blue and Grey

Another one for the boys (or the girls who love blue). This simple but funky iPhone case is great for protecting your iPhone and giving it some colour and "coolness".

Like the red one above, this is plain yet colourful. It's quite a "summery" case for your iPhone too.

Don't fancy the blue one? No problem! Check it out, there's loads of other colours, including red, pink and green!

#9: Fur - I mean, furry fur!

This is gorgeous, stylish, cool, funky and cute! It's everything you could want all in one iPhone case. And, it's got fur on it!

This very unique case will certainly be a conversation starter, if nothing else. It will also be very easy to feel around for your phone if it's lost at the bottom of your handbag or pocket.

If you're really into the furry, animal-style cases, this might be ideal to cover your iPhone.

#8: Walnut Wood Effect

This is for those of you that like the natural, nature-themed, woody effect. It's suitable for both girls and boys, and can be ideal if you are looking for an iPhone case that is simple and doesn't stand out too much, but at the same time is unique and funky!

#7: Soft Angel

These are cute, cool and the ultimate funky iPhone case! They are available in a wide range of colours, so if you don't like the yellow, you can buy another colour of your choice.

The icing on the cake are the incredibly-cute angel wings on either side of the case. Aww!

#6: Michael Jackson

All MJ fans out there, come and grab your iPhone cases quick! This one is definitely my favourite. Its the perfect cool and funky iPhone case for all those Michael Jackson fans.

There are actually lots of Michael Jackson iPhone cases available on Amazon. There are cases with pictures of other singers too, so if you're not a big MJ fan but you love Rihanna, for example, you can get a case exactly as you like it.

If you really are crazy about a certain celebrity, you'll want all your accessories customised with that celebrity. The good news is that you can have iPhone cases with almost any celebrity.

#5: Piano Keys

As a pianist, I would love to have an iPhone case with something musical on it. A case like this is also a great gift for any music lovers, even if they don't play an instrument.

Other instrumentalists (other than pianists) may also like a case like this, so if you have any birthdays of friends coming up, this might be something to consider.

#4: Mickey Mouse

This amazing iPhone case has got to be among the coolest and funkiest iPhone cases I have seen so far. Cute and unique, it definitely stand out from the average crowd!

If you're looking for something colourful and you loved Disney as a child (or still love Disney now!), this case is probably the perfect one to protect your iPhone.

Perfect for the Disney fans!

#3: One Direction

Virtually every teenage girl on the planet has a crush on the band members of One Direction, so this had to be on the list somewhere.

If you know a girl who loves One Direction, you don't need to think about what you're going to get for her birthday anymore! She'll be the envy of all the other One Direction fans she knows once her phone is being protected by this case.

#2: Betty Boop

How could I not include Betty Boop in my top 21 iPhone cases? This cute and cool iPhone case is perfect for any Betty Boop lover, in fact, any girl.

Grab yourself a bargain, this stylish and unique iPhone case will catch anyone's attention.

#1: Panda

This is my personal favourite. It's the cutest iPhone case I've seen so far, although I don't know whether I'd actually have it on my iPhone.

If you're a fan of cute things (and animals), this is a great iPhone case. Kids love cases like this too, and they protect valuable iPhones well.
