    HTC Aria Your HTC Aria, which is one of the best HTC phones on the market, gives you all the power of a full-featured smartphone in a compact design. But before you start browsing the web, downloading apps and getting the most out of your smartphone experience, why not consider getting a little protection for your new phone? A case for your phone will help it look like new, even after months of general use. While no case will protect your phone from the impact of, say, a sledgehammer, a good hard or soft plastic case can prevent dings and scratches from small impacts with desk corners or keys in your pocket. There is no shortage of different types of cases available for the Aria, so we have narrowed down the best HTC Aria cases for you, into this list of the top five.

    Honorable Mention: Zooly TPU Argyle Case

    Zooly Green TPU The Zooly TPU case just missed making this list of the top five cases, but I just couldn't pass up the chance to mention an HTC Aria case with an argyle pattern. In all seriousness, the case is light-weight and able to take a decent amount of abuse before any damage starts to show. The case adds a nice tactile sensation to the back of your Aria, which makes the phone feel more comfortable in your hand. The Zooly cases come in a number of colors, including Clear and Smoke, for those people who don't want to add a splash of color to their device.

    5. PROZKIN Flexible Plastic Case

    PROZKIN Flexible Plastic Case The PROZKIN case uses a flexible plastic material to wrap your Aria up and protect it. Despite being flexible, the plastic of the case is strong enough to provide a solid barrier between your phone and the outside world. Since the case was designed specifically for the Aria, it has an open screen to allow you to use the phone and cut-outs from the plastic in all the necessary places for your ports and buttons on the side of the phone. The PROZKIN felxible plastic cases come in up to six colors and sports a checkered diamond design on the back.

    4. Nite Ize Clip Case Sideways

    Nite Ize The Nite Ize Clip Case Sideways is a general phone pouch that fits a large number of wireless devices, including the HTC Aria. According to the manufacturer the case is made with a material called Ballistic Poly Hypalon which gives the case its durability and rugged tactile feel. On one side of the case is a velcro flap that closes to protect your Aria, and on the other is a flexible clip that you can use to attach the case to your clothing. The case succedes in combining a durable material and a quality design into a case that is both protective and stylish. Definitely a good option among the HTC Aria cases available.

    3. Amzer Rubberized Snap On Crystal Hard Case

    Amzer Rubberized Snap On This Amzer hard case comes in two pieces that snap together to completely enclose, except for the screen, your HTC Aria. The plastic that makes up the case is strong, but it is also still flexibile enough that you don't have to worry about breaking the case to get it open. The plastic is coated is a rubbery substance that increases the grip on the case as well as making it a bit more shock resistant. The Amzer rubberized case both protects your Aria and feels good in your hand, the perfect combination for any cellular case. This case is available in a number of different colors, so you are sure to find one that you like.

    2. Wigan Premium Mobile Horizontal Case

    Wigan Premium Case The Wigan Premium Mobile Horizontal case is a little like the Nite Ize case from earlier in the article, but the Wigan has a few features that makes it stand out from other horizontal HTC Aria cases. The first difference is that the swiveling clip on the back lets you hold your Aria in an upright position or a horizontal position, whichever way you prefer. The black outside of the case is made with a blend of leather and nylon and accented with pieces of metal. The color of the outside also contrasts nicely with the tan color of the interior. The large flap on the front of the case is held in place by a magnet, so it is easy to quickly open and close.

    1. Amzer Silicone Skin Jelly Case

    Amzer Silicone Skin Jelly The Amzer Silicone Skin Jelly Case tops the list of HTC Aria cases because it is lightweight, durable, inexpensive, easy to use and doesn't take away from the original feel of the Aria in your hand. The silicone stretches enough so that you can just slip the Aria into place, but then contracts enough so that the case feels solid around the phone and doesn't hang off where it can get caught on things and tear. The case also helps prevent damage from single point impacts and is resistant to cuts from most objects. There isn't much to this case, but it will protect your Aria perfectly, and for a very reasonable price. The Amzer Rubberizied case is also available in up to eight different colors, including some neutral colors like black and grey.
