If you look at it, phones cost us a lot more than the prices at which they are retailed, once the cellular and data plans are added in. So, it goes without saying that investing in a quality phone case should be one of the first things to do when you buy a phone.
If you are the owner of the newly-launched Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, here are some of the best cases and covers available online as of now. Take a look!
At the time of writing, the Technowik Carbon Protective Back Cover was one of the highest rated products, thanks to its durability and premium looks. Priced at Rs 299, the Techowik cover fits the phone perfectly and comes with spider-web patterns on the inside for easy heat dissipation.
Made from carbon, this cover boasts of a textured back which naturally helps you to grip the phone better. What's more, it preserves the slim look of your Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 without adding much bulk to its size.

2. Bounceback Slim 3-in-1 Back Case
3-in-1 cases are the latest sensation in India and without a doubt, these covers lift the look of the phone multifold. Especially, if the top and bottom edges are in colored in eye-catching shades. One such case for the Redmi Note 5 is the Bounceback Slim Back Case.
Where this case stands apart from the rest is its incorporation of a matte texture on the surface. This gives the necessary grip and style. Other than that, the precise cuts for buttons and camera make sure that nothing gets between you and your phone.
This case comes in three separate parts, so you might find the removal part a bit cumbersome. But if you ask me, it's better than having a ding on the phone.
Priced at Rs 349, this case is made to take on small to medium falls. To add to it, the case is water and dust resistant. Moreover, the volume rockers and power key are kept covered with tactile buttons.
Though it promises an edge-to-edge protection, the lower edge is left exposed to the elements. Hence, a landing on the lower edge may pose quite a bit of a problem.
4. Bounceback Semi-Transparent Slim Back Cover
Usually, it's the phone's edges which suffer the most damages in short drops. So, if you don't want to see ugly scratches on the edges, it's always recommended to get a quality bumper case.
The Bounceback Semi-Transparent Slim Back Cover balances both the looks and the protection of your phone. The edges are carbon while the rest is transparent, thus letting you admire the design of the phone to your heart's content. Also, the raised lips around the camera module ensure that the camera is kept protected from scratches.
5. Jkobi WoodFeel Leather Flip Case
Looking for a 360° protection for your new Xiaomi phone? If yes, trust the Jkobi Leather Flip Case to take care of it. The advantage of using flip cases is that you can prop your phone and watch videos hands-free. This case also comes with a slot for carrying your cash and cards.
The Jkobi Leather Flip Case boasts of two protective layers. While the inner layer is soft, the outer layer is rigid, keeping the case in shape. Plus, this case also comes with a slot to carry cash and cards. One good thing about this case is that it'd fit perfectly on your new Xiaomi Redmi Note 5.
Though the look of the case is a tad on the lower scale, this one is the best option for you if you're paranoid about your phone.
6. Mobi Armor Transparent Back Cover
Last but not the least, we have a transparent cover from Mobi Armor. Priced at only Rs 147, this case is a value-for-money proposition if we were to go by the reviews.
The Mobi Armor Transparent Back Cover is the cover for you if you want to maintain the original looks of your Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. The good thing about this cover is that it has precise cutouts for the volume rockers and power buttons.
If you ask me, I always tend to look for covers which come with openings for buttons. This way, the button feedback isn't compromised in any way. Besides that, the cover is flexible. However, we would recommend you not to handle it with sweaty hands.
After all, silicon and sweaty hands seldom go well together.
