Despite having a more impressive bigger sibling, the Huawei P30 is a heck of a flagship phone, with Huawei’s latest and most powerful processor, a variety of stunning colors (check out the Breathing Crystal and Amber Sunrise variants), and an amazing triple-lens camera with a 3x optical zoom and Huawei’s new SuperSpectrum technology.
But while it’s an impressive flagship phone, it’s just as prone to damage as any other phone. Since you’re likely to be spending upward of $650 on it, protection is a must. We’ve done the hard work for you; here are the best Huawei P30 cases you can buy right now.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The Spigen Rugged Armor case has been a fan-favorite accessory no matter the phone model it’s paired with. Popularized by its slim yet rugged design, the case is an all-around great case. The matte finish on the back of the case allows it to lay smoothly on your palms, and the textured ridges keep it stationary. While not as bulky as your traditional “rugged” case, Spigen packs its signature Air Cushion Technology on the corners, ensuring protection from bumps and drops. On the inside is Spigen’s spider-web pattern to help disperse any impact that the P30 takes.
For something lightweight yet very protective, see the Plasma case from Urban Armor Gear. Known for making accessories for consumers with active lifestyles, UAG designed the Plasma case to give your phone an ample amount of protection without making it weigh down your pockets. It’s available in a variety of colors including clear, so you can show off the flashy tone of your P30 without putting that glass design in danger. The case is MIL-STD-810G drop-test certified so it can withstand impact and shocks from up to 4 feet high.
If you’re looking for maximum protection for your Huawei P30, then look no further than the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro. This is one of the most complete, rugged, and protective cases you can buy. It features a built-in screen protector, dual-layer TPU bumpers, and even rubberized port covers to keep your headphone jack and charging port free of dust and debris. While the case keeps your phone tightly packed, the rubber cushions inside keep it from causing any damage. When you’re ready to venture into the open, clip the case onto the included holster and have easy access to your P30 every time.
If you really can’t bear to hide your phone away from the world with a large case, then you should consider a clear case. Olixar’s ultra-thin protective cases use TPU to shield your device from hazards, and the soft but durable material is excellent at absorbing shocks from bumps and small drops, while also keeping it safe from dirt and fingerprints. The soft material offers extra grip and even comes with a raised lip along the edges of the screen to protect it further. It’s extremely slim and completely clear, so you can forget it’s there. However, that slim build means that it’s not as protective as bigger cases. Still, it’s a good choice if you want to pretend you don’t have a case.
Getting a case doesn’t have to mean adding featureless black plastic to your phone. A case can add style as well as protection, and wallet cases are a great way to do exactly that. This wallet case from Snakehive is made from European full-grain cowhide nubuck leather, so it looks amazing, while also offering great protection when combined with the inner plastic case. The leather wraps around your phone while not in use, providing complete protection for your device and can fold into a horizontal stand when required. You’ll find soft leather lining the inside of the leather, along with three card slots for spare cards, cash, or travel tickets. You can even customize the case with your initials for a small amount extra.
Ringke specializes in rugged protective cases that certainly have a unique style that goes beyond the usual black plastic look. The Fusion-X is named well, as it uses a fusion of different materials in its construction. A hard and clear backplate provides scratch-protection while allowing the design of your phone to shine through. But you will also find a solid black TPU bumper around the edges, adding shock and drop protection that is rated at a certified military grade of MIL-STD 810G. It has raised bezels to protect the screen, and you will find nicely clicky button covers and even a dust cover for the charging port. A great protective case at a good price.
Leather is great, but not everyone likes genuine leather. Thankfully, synthetic PU leather exists and VRS Design’s Layered Dandy case is one of the best examples of why PU leather is just as good as real leather in many ways. Thanks to the complete coverage, your phone is fully protected in a bag or pocket, while the inner polycarbonate case adds extra protection. There are three slots and an inner pocket for credit cards, travel tickets, spare cash, and it closes securely with a magnetic strap. It’s a slim and beautiful case that adds executive style to your phone. A great alternative to real leather wallet cases.
Who else is better placed to offer you great protection than the phone’s own manufacturer? Huawei has traditionally offered some cool cases, and its Smart Flip cases have always been a particular highlight. Made from a synthetic PU leather, it provides protection for the entire device, though it’s somewhat thinner than most other wallet cases. However, the really exciting part exists on the front. Once clipped onto your phone, the case communicates with it, turning the transparent section into a smart window that shows your notifications, the time and date, and other details.
