With 15 years in the books for the 21st century, we should expect our phone cases to go the extra mile. These ten certainly do!

Minimalists rejoice! The Bellroy 3-Card has enough space for your most used cards and the ability to hide some bills in the inside of the case—this one is great for those who like to keep things lean. It also has a secret slot for an extra sim card.
This military-grade case delivers top-notch protection and power storage, with the addition of two power features: The Auto-Stop charge system cuts power when your phone is full, saving it for when you need it later, and an LED on the back of the case displays the reserve power in 25% increments.
This sleek vegetable-tanned Italian leather Nodus case offers you a magnetic mounting system (so you can mount it on your car dashboard, for example) and even includes the Micro Dock for free with your purchase.
The Kraken series is the superstar of Trident's phone case lineup, with tons of great features. The Kraken A.M.S. provides three layers of protection, and a detatchable media stand for use with other accessories. According to their site, the Kraken is infused with silver ions that fight to keep your phone up to 99.99% free of common microbes. (Since cell phones are absolutley crawling with bacteria, this is a pretty big win.) The case also meets military grade standards for drop, vibration, dust, sand, and rain tests.
This ultra-powerful case provides a plethora of awesome features. Its reserve battery pack will give you an extra 150% charge, and all you need to do is flip a switch when you're ready to tap into it. A newly designed Impact-Isolation System integrates internal suspension bumpers to provide extra shock absorption for contact with the ground (we've all been there...). Additionally, the case is compatible with some great accessories, including a holster, charging station, and a car dock.
If we're talking innovation—Snow Lizard's SLXtreme case has a built-in solar panel for green charging, making it one of the most creatively designed cases we've ever seen. Waterproof and drop-tested, this case is perfect for any type of adventure.
