Share and show your friends that cool phone cases made in the USA actually exist!
Magpul Cases for iPhones and Samsung Galaxy Phones
My long search is over; I've found truly great iPhone and Galaxy phone cases made in the USA. I trust my own phone with a Magpul Case. These cases are comfortably thin to slip into your pocket, textured for a better grip, and offer good shock protection from falls. Cutouts for the buttons, mic, charging cable, and camera are precise and don't distort sounds like many Otterbox and LifeProof cases tend to do. Magpul iPhone and Galaxy Cases are very affordable and come in a variety of colors to satisfy the manly and the girly...
The cases pictured above are for the iPhone 6/6s. Magpul also makes cases for the iPhone 4/4s, 5/5s, SE, 6 Plus, 7, iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus; as well as the Samsung Galaxy S4, S5, S6, S6 Edge, S7, S7 Edge, and S8.
Carved Phone Cases
Carved provides stylish American-made iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, and Google Pixel cases. I haven't personally tried any Carved cases, but they look great and receive consistent high reviews. They have a variety of carved wood designs to suit any style. Besides their affordable yet classy wood panel phone cases, they also hand make beautiful limited edition solid wood cases. Their custom solid wood cases are only available directly through Carved.com, otherwise you can find phone cases by Carved through Amazon. Note, this is also one of the only companies to handcraft wood iPhone X cases made in the USA as well as wooden cases for the latest iPhone Xs, Xr, Samsung S9, Google Pixel 3, and Pixel 3 XL.
ArmorSuit MilitaryShield Screen Protectors
ArmorSuit makes excellent screen protectors for many smartphones and tablets including iPhones, Galaxy S-everythings, iPads, LG phones, Pixel, etc. ArmorSuit isn't made of rigid tempered glass but a military grade film that "self heals" minor scratches and conforms to curves like those of the Galaxy S9 and LG G7. I'm very pleased with my ArmorSuit Screen Protector, though I must note that I smartly keep my phone in a pocket alone (not with scratchy keys and such). The application process results in a completely clear, bubble free application, unlike many other protectors I've tried. If you're getting an Armorsuit Screen Protector to use in combination with a phone case then make sure to get the "case friendly" version which allows more room for the edges of the case. I haven't had a single issue with mine after two years of everyday use; however, if I do ArmorSuit provides a lifetime warranty.
