The LG G6 is one of the big smartphone releases of 2017 LG

After a mediocre response to the LG G5 in 2016, LG has ditched its modular smartphone experiment and has returned to a more traditional design approach with its latest flagship, the LG G6. The good news is that the LG G6 is a lot prettier to look at, boasting a high-end sheen that leaves no question that this is a handset that belongs at the very top of this year's smartphone roster.

Yet that being the case, the LG G6 comes with a considerable price tag: around £650, in fact, and while the phone has limited protection against the elements, you'll need to invest in a case if you want to keep it safe against the occasional knocks, drops and stair-tumbles life enjoys dishing out.

Thanks to the wide range of cases already on sale, you can make sure your shiny LG G6 is protected from day one. There are a variety of different styles and designs to choose from too, meaning you're guaranteed to find one no matter what your particular tastes are.

Below is our hand-picked selection of the best LG G6 smartphone cases you can buy.
