Here are the best OnePlus 5T cases to keep the flagship-killer beautiful

best oneplus 5t cases
The OnePlus 5T proves that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get a smartphone with flagship specifications, top-of-the-line performance, and a minimal bezel display. But just because it’s a bit cheaper than an iPhone X doesn’t mean you have money to throw around on repairs, and it certainly doesn’t mean you want to see your phone get all bashed up. A protective case can solve a lot of these issues by putting a layer of soft TPU or hard polycarbonate between your phone and the stresses of everyday life. Here are some of the best OnePlus 5T cases currently available so you can keep your phone safe.

TopAce Ultra Thin Gel Case ($9)

If you’re a no-nonsense sort of person who doesn’t like the idea of a bulky case getting between you and your phone, then a clear gel case might be your kind of protection. This ultrathin case from TopAce is made of flexible TPU and provides some protection against minor bumps and scrapes. The soft material also adds grip, so your phone will hopefully spend less time in midair. While it won’t provide as much protection as a larger, bulkier case, it does allow you to still show off the beautiful design of your phone, giving you the luxury of being able to put it on and forget about it.

Anccer Ultra-Slim Hard Case ($12)

Smooth, slim, and comfortable — if you don’t want a large case, and you don’t want a silicone case, check out Anccer’s ultrathin range of hard polycarbonate cases for the OnePlus 5T. PC is a form of hard plastic, so it’s hard-wearing as well as lightweight, and it means you won’t have to worry about the metal frame of your OnePlus 5T once you clip this on. It doesn’t offer much in the way of shockproofing, but it’s certainly better than nothing, and should fend off scratches and dings. The extra grip afforded by the PC should also mean that the chances of slips and drops are lessened.

Official OnePlus Flip Cover ($18)

OnePlus offers some great cases for its phones and this flip cover is no exception. Crafted from durable and easy-to-maintain PU leather, this case is hard-wearing and animal-friendly. An inner core of TPU holds your phone snugly, and protects it against damage, while the outer layer of PU leather wraps around the phone to complete the protection. That’s not all; flipping the cover over the front screen automatically puts the screen to sleep, ensuring your OnePlus 5T won’t accidentally wake while in transit, saving power for when you actually need it. The inside of the case also features a card slot, perfect for a payment card, or travel tickets. Sleek and executive-looking, this flip cover won’t look out of place anywhere.

Noreve Leather Wallet Case ($49+)

If you’re after a case that’s as high-end as the OnePlus 5T’s flagship-killing reputation, then you need look no further than Noreve. First off, there’s a massive amount of choice on offer here. Noreve offers a variable pricing structure, depending on which type of leather you pick (from PU leather to the extremely expensive Patine leather), the color you choose, and the optional belt clips. It’s not a quick way to pick a case, but if you want something truly unique, it’s right there for you. No matter your choice of leather, Noreve’s cases are soft, extremely high quality, and keep your device protected at all times.

Avidet Shock Absorbing Hard Cover ($8)

If you want something a little more hard-wearing, then this case from Avidet might be what you’re looking for. It’s made of tough polycarbonate (PC), making it rigid, and easily able to take the stresses of scratches and dings that would otherwise impact your phone. PC is also a light material, so you won’t be adding much bulk to your slim OnePlus 5T by putting this case on it. The pattern on the back of the case helps to aid grip, so you shouldn’t have any issue keeping a hold of your phone at all times.

Wellci Carbon Fiber-Style Case ($6)

For the next step in protection, you can check out a protective TPU case. It’s obviously not as hard as PC, but because of that it’s able to take shocks better than polycarbonate, making it a great choice if you’re worried about damage from drops and falls. It also looks good, with a slick carbon fiber-style look and a textured surface that aids grip. A raised edge around the screen and camera keep those areas from being scratched by dirt or rough surfaces, and a spiderweb pattern on the inside of the case helps to disperse shock.

TopAce Flexible Shock Case ($9)

One of the softer options in protective cases, this case from TopAce is made of our old friend, TPU. Thanks to the flexible material and the inner spiderweb pattern that transfers energy away from the device, this case should be great at absorbing impact. The leather-like pattern on the back also helps you to maintain your grip on the phone, while also adding a unique style to your device. It’s thin and light, and the raised edges around the camera and screen help to keep those vulnerable areas away from surfaces, and away from dirt and grit that might damage them. A great protective option.

Official OnePlus Sandstone Case ($18)

What sort of OnePlus case roundup would this be without mention of the most iconic cases you can buy? We mentioned OnePlus’s excellent flip wallet case above, but these slim protective cases have always been the jewel in OnePlus’s accessory crown. Made from polycarbonate, the Sandstone case has a sandy finish, adding grip and giving your OnePlus 5T a unique texture. Raised edges protect the camera and screen from damage, and the hard PC surface keeps scratches and dings away from the body of your device. OnePlus also offers a Kevlar variant that includes real DuPont Kevlar fiber — though that will set you back an additional $5. Either case is a unique addition to your device and some of the most stylish protection available.

TopAce Shockproof Clear TPU Cover ($10)

Another case from TopAce, this clear TPU cover is flexible and strong with reinforced corners that take the brunt of most bashes and drops thanks to a series of airbag-like pockets at each corner. With a clear back so you can see your OnePlus 5T’s goregous design, and raised corners that elevate your device from potentially hazardous surfaces, this case is great for making sure that your device stays clean and undamaged, while also allowing you to still see it.

DayJoy Metal Bumper Frame Case ($25)

We thought we’d end this round-up with something a little special, and more than a little different. Metal isn’t a material we see often in cases; although it’s hard-wearing and protective, it tends to be heavy, and conducts shock badly if it’s a flat surface. This case from DayJoy, however, is made from a series of squared aluminum tubes that allow shock to travel away from the phone, as well as keeping the edges of the phone away from impact surfaces. It’s certainly unique looking, and the ring on the back serves to aid grip by allowing users to loop their finger through to hang on. And if that’s not crazy enough for you, check out the A-Black variant. Scary!
