Best phone bags - at a glance

How we chose the best phone bags

  • Size: Different sized mobile phones factor and we can't please everyone. If you have a small flip phone, you might not find what you're looking for. A lot of the suggestions below are for iPhones or similar size.
  • How It Looks: This is an edit of stylish phone bags, so we wanted to choose the most stylish out there. Whether that's the colour choice, the material or the shape, we want shoppers to feel chic and trendy.
  • Practicality: Ideally, a phone bag has a cross-body strap for hands-free ease.
  • Safety: Some internal pockets are useful, but making sure your mobile phone can't be pinched from its carrier is of utmost importance. We were on the hunt for phone bags that have the option to conceal the contents inside.
