The OnePlus 7 Pro’s edge-to-edge AMOLED display is something to behold. This beast of a phone packs an impressive 1440p resolution and a silky smooth 90Hz refresh rate. The downside? The smooth glass means it’s easy to lose your grip on the device.
To prevent cracks, dents, and other damage, we suggest investing in a durable case for your OnePlus 7 Pro. Below, we’ve rounded up a handful of our favorites based on style, durability, grip, and thickness.
You won’t find a case that offers more grip and control than the OnePlus Official Sandstone case. The cover shows off one of OnePlus’ most popular texture choices: Sandstone. The sandpaper-like texture will keep your OnePlus 7 Pro grippy even with its curved and tall body. Do note that the case does not cover the top and bottom of your device, though reinforced corners will reduce the impact of drops. The side buttons and alert slider are also left naked so you’ll feel smooth and clicky feedback. This case is made by OnePlus itself, so you can rest assured knowing it’ll fit your OnePlus 7 Pro perfectly.
The Nebula Blue and Almond colorways for the OnePlus 7 Pro look amazing, and we know that well. Why should you hide that eye-catching color with a case? With the Rhinoshield CrashGuard Bumper, you won’t have to. Made with a durable and tough ShockSpread polymer, the Rhinoshield Bumper case will keep your phone safe without hiding its design. Unlike a traditional case, the bumper-style build wraps around the sides of your device and leaves the back completely empty. Thanks to the what Rhinoshield deems as Impact Flex, the ridges inside the bumper disperse any impact that your phone takes when dropped. The case weighs next to nothing but can still take quite the beating, making it a great choice for your phone’s protection.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is a fairly tall and heavy device, even by today’s standards. For some added protection and grip without the bulk, try the Nillkin Frosted Shield case. The Frosted Shield has a raised dot matrix on the back that makes the phone very comfortable to hold. The hard shell design wraps around all sides of the OnePlus 7 Pro and should drastically reduce any accidental edge touches. The front and bottom lips are just far enough to guard your screen if it ever hits a surface face-first. Made with polycarbonate material, the Nillkin Frosted Shield is water-resistant, dust-proof, and will keep any finger grease off the back of your device.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is hands down one of the most beautiful phones released so far in 2019, and we don’t blame you for not wanting to hide it behind thick plastic. Protection comes in many forms, and you can still get a modicum of coverage even if you want to show off your style with a clear case. This case from Olixar is made from completely clear TPU, which protects your phone from various bumps and scratches while still allowing the design to shine through. It’s cheap, too, so you don’t need to worry about breaking the bank. However, that clear and thin material also means it’s not going to be as protective as larger, bulkier cases.
Increasing your level of protection doesn’t have to mean abandoning style, and if you’re a sucker for sci-fi-inspired looks, then the Spigen Rugged Armor might be your case of choice. With a matte black finish and carbon fiber-style highlights it impacts a cool and futuristic look, but it’s also protective into the bargain. The TPU provides protection against everyday scratches and bumps, and Spigen’s Air Cushion Technology is installed in each corner to boost protection against drops and falls. There’s a raised edge around the screen and the camera lenses that keep them protected from scratches and dirt. A great combination of protection and style.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a powerful triple-lens camera and it would be a waste not to use that to its full. If you’re really looking to get the most out of your phone’s camera and don’t mind spending some money to do it, then the Moment Photo Case is the best protective case for you. The thin build doesn’t add much bulk onto your phone, while the rubberized material and textured back panel adds grip for your fingers. There’s also an attachment point for a wrist strap. But the headline feature is Moment’s range of lenses that can be attached to the case, including a macro lens and a super fish-eye lens. However, they are extremely expensive, so don’t invest in the case unless you’re willing to part with big bucks for the lenses.
Another big name in the phone protection business, Speck is bringing its legendary Presidio Grip series to the OnePlus 7 Pro, and we would be remiss if we didn’t mention it in this article. As you might be able to tell from the name, the grip is a big part of what makes the Presidio Grip so special, and it comes with a series of rubber ridges that add no-slip grip and give the case its unique style. There’s a layer of Speck’s “Impactium” on the inside of the case, providing protection against drops and tumbles, and a raised edge around the camera and screen keeps those areas well protected, but it is expensive.
You don’t have to sacrifice protection even if you err on the side of style and fashion. Otterbox is extremely well known for offering excellent protection for your phone, but it can also provide some style. The Symmetry series is Otterbox’s thin and clear offering, and it offers an attractive gradient coloring and a sparkle finish for a really eye-catching look that complements the sleek style of your OnePlus 7 Pro. But as an Otterbox case, it’s also extremely protective and is made from a combination of polycarbonate and specialized rubber to protect against scratches, bumps, and drops. However, it’s a very expensive option.
We’ve seen a lot of expensive rugged cases, but it’s important to note that protection doesn’t have to be pricey. The Poetic Revolution case is made from a hard polycarbonate outer layer combined with a soft inner TPU case for total protection against scratches, drops, and other threats, and has been drop tested to the military standard MIL-STD 810G – 516.6. There’s a built-in screen protector too, meaning there’s full, all-around protection, and there’s even a kickstand built into the back of the case. However, if you’re looking for a sleeker case this probably isn’t for you, as the Revolution wears its rugged style on its sleeve.
If you’re looking for great protection with a unique style, then Ringke’s Fusion-X case may be your case of choice. The outer bumper of soft and impact-absorbing TPU protects against drops and bumps, and also provides extra grip for your hand, while the clear back panel of polycarbonate provides a rigid structure and strong scratch-protection too. A raised lip protects the screen and camera lenses, while the Quikcatch system allows you to attach a wrist strap for the ultimate in drop prevention. It’s not too expensive, and while the style may not be to everyone’s taste, there’s no doubting it’s a good performer.
