Best Full Coverage: Ledniceker Case

The Ledniceker case is an excellent option for people who want a shockproof case. The most crucial detail is that it has a built-in screen protector to protect from scratches and minor falls. Its kickstands aren’t one piece, but that doesn’t change the functionality of their viewing angles.

The handle does make it easy for kids or adults to carry it around, but it lacks a hands-free option that similar cases have. Even though it’s missing the shoulder strap, this is one of the few cases that has a screen protector built-in. Plus, it is very easy to install and take off.
