Review: Colorful & Protective iPhone 8 & 8 Plus Cases from X-Doria

X-Doria offers a ton of color and style choices for its Defense Cases ($12.95-34.99) all at a reasonable price.  Most are drop-tested from three meters (almost ten feet) and offer great protection, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style. Several of the designs offer unique accents like carbon fiber styling, iridescent materials, ballistic nylon, or a leather texture.
