10 great Huawei P9 cases to protect your new phone

Huawei P9
Andy Boxall/Digital Trends
If you’ve managed to get your hands on Huawei’s P9 smartphone, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll want to cover it with a stylish or durable case to protect it. Not only to shield the body of the phone from the elements, but also to prevent any damage befalling the 5.2-inch display or the dual-lens camera, which is one of the P9’s best features. There are three variations of Huawei’s latest — the P9, the P9 Plus, and the P9 Lite — and they all have different dimensions, so you don’t want to accidentally buy the wrong case. These cases are all specifically made for the P9.

Bumper Frame Huawei P9 Case ($19)

Bumper Frame Case for Huawei P9

This case combines a tough outer shell with a slim design in order to add protection without adding bulk to the phone. The case also features a two-tone design, with the outer edges sporting a sleeker, shinier finish, while the back is more textured to offer a better grip on the phone, hopefully preventing any drops. All ports, connectors, speakers, and buttons are still as accessible as usual, but the buttons get additional protection as the case has metallic covers. All in all, the Bumper Frame lets you use your Huawei P9 like usual, but now you can keep a better hold on it while appreciating its new look.

Love Mei Powerful Protective Case

This case from Love Mei requires screws to bring the entire thing together, so you know you’re getting something durable that’s ready for adventure. There are several components to Love Mei’s offering, which includes a front cover with a built-in screen protector, an outer bumper, and a back plate to completely seal your phone inside. If that wasn’t enough, there are also removable pieces to cover the charging port and headphone jack, keeping them safe from dirt, dust, or any other substance. It’s shock proof, snow proof, the screen protector is shatter proof, and you can also put it on a lanyard in order to make it theft proof. It’s an expensive case, to be sure, but one that’s well worth the price.

StilGut Cover Book Type Case ($33-$40)

StilGut Cover Book Type Case

If you prefer to have something with a flip cover that also exudes quality, StilGut’s Book Type case may be something to look into. It’s made out of genuine leather and has been hand measured to fit the Huawei P9 as perfectly as possible. A clip on the side ensures the cover will stay closed to protect the screen, and all of the smartphone’s features and capabilities remain accessible while within the Book Type, including the rear cameras. It doesn’t trigger the display when flipped open, but if that’s not a deal breaker, you can’t go wrong with this particular case. It’s also backed by a two-year warranty, which is always good to have.

Official Huawei P9 Smart View Flip Case ($26-$28)

Official Huawei P9 Smart View Flip Case

While this is another flip case that does everything you’d want it to, it does have one unique feature that separates it from the pack, and that’s the smart screen window located on the front of the cover. Using this feature, known as Smart View, people can see their notifications, the time, date, and weather, without needing to open the cover and turn on their phone’s display. Aside from that, it’s made out of high-quality synthetic leather and designed specifically for the Huawei P9, so expect it to fit like a glove.

Pasonomi Hybrid Dual Layer ($8)

Pasonomi Hybrid Dual Layer Case

Pasonomi’s hybrid case blends together quality protection and style, while also maintaining a low price tag. The case itself is a silicone inner layer joined with a hard outer shell that comes in a wide range of colors like blue, gray, red, silver, and gold. It’s also rather thin, meaning the phone won’t feel much larger in your hand, but it still manages to provide additional grip in specific spots along the edges. Finally, there’s a rectangular kickstand located in the back, so you’re all set to watch videos without needing to constantly hold your phone.
