These days, people put almost as much thought into their choice of iPhone case as they put into their choice of network. Heck, some people put even more thought into the case: "Vodafone? Whatever mate, just as long as I can get a case that makes it look like a VW campervan."

There are all kinds of awesome iPhone cases on the market nowadays, but beware - there are some truly horrendous ones out there too. Here are some of the worst we've seen:

Chunky Retro iPhone Case

You know how mobile phones get smaller and smaller every year? Extremely clever people have spent their lives trying to make all that technology fit in your pocket - imagine how those people must feel when you put your slim 'n' sexy iPhone in one of these monstrosities. You're basically telling them that all the work they've done since 1985 was a big waste of time.


Hand iPhone Case

What on Earth was the thinking behind this? 'It'll feel like you're holding your lover's hand while you're on the phone'? Nope, sorry - it'll feel like you're holding a severed hand, and that's just creepy. It's like something out of The Addams Family.

Nose-Picking iPhone Case

Cripes. It's bad enough that someone thought a case with a nose on it would be a good idea, but the promotional imagery makes it clear that you're supposed to hold it in a very particular way. Gross.

Breast iPhone Case

Oh, and if you thought that the nostrils and the severed hand were a bit too tasteful, here's an iPhone case that's shaped like a single boob! Can we just agree that iPhone cases should never be modelled on human body parts?

Giant Isopod iPhone Case

You'd never pick up the phone again, would you?

Bathing Woman iPhone Case

Do people actually find this sort of thing arousing? Why can't they just type naughty words into Google Images like the rest of us?

Bulletproof iPhone Case

"What case have you got for your phone?"

"Oh, I've got this awesome bulletproof case."

"Why? Have people been trying to shoot your iPhone?"

"No, but it means that I can drop it and it won't break."

"Where is it?"

"I had to leave it at home because the case was too heavy."

"You're an idiot and we are no longer friends."

That Thing from Your Nightmares


Lobster Phone iPhone Case

Oh look, a reference to surreal artist Salvador Dali! Allegedly with an iPhone buried somewhere inside it! If there's one thing worse than idiocy, it's pretentious idiocy.

Switchblade iPhone Case

A great accessory for the stylish, 21st-century gang member, this is probably the only case on this list that could actually get you arrested. Unless the police think that the severed hand case is actually, well, a severed hand.

Once you go red, you'll wish you were dead.

Is there any sight more feared in the modern world?

1) iPhones choose the worst moments to die.

In the middle of an important conversation? On the brink of conquering that one really difficult level on Two Dots? Halfway through a juicy text to your BFF? Not any more - your battery just ran out!


2) You can never find your charger when you need it...

"Okay, it's not in that drawer either...maybe I left it in work?"


3) ...and if you do find it, you'll have to untangle it from a mass of other cables.

Remember: frustrated tugging just makes it worse.


4) Untangled your charger? Well done! But there are no spare plug sockets - what will you unplug to make room?

"Okay...I can't unplug the internet, or the phone...I'm gonna watch TV while my phone charges, so that needs to stay...I could unplug the toaster, but what if I suddenly start craving Pop Tarts?"


5) Once you've plugged your phone in, you have to wait a few minutes for it to turn on again.

And it feels like an eternity.


6) And that's when it starts - that horrible sense of existential hopelessness that sets in when you can't use your phone.

*muffled sobbing*


7) Even when your phone does come back to life, you have to sit right next to the outlet if you want to use it.

You might as well be cuffed to the radiator. This is the 21st century, dammit - why can't Apple give us a cable that's longer than a few inches?!


8) Of course, you could unplug it...but if you do that, you'll be out of battery again within a few minutes.

And then you'll be right back to square one.


9) Having gone a short while without your iPhone, you'll now have ten billion notifications to wade through...

And you'll have no peace of mind until you've read every. Single. One.


10) ...or, worse still, you'll have zero notifications to wade through.

And you'll wonder why you even bother.
