OnePlus updates its range twice every year, with the T-update landing in the later months. But you’d have to be a bit daft to think you need to update your OnePlus phone that often. The OnePlus 7T has gorgeous looks and a strong camera, and is offered for hundreds of dollars less than the competition. Look after it well, and there’s no reason why the OnePlus 7T shouldn’t last for years.
Of course, a big part of keeping a phone for a long time is keeping it safe from physical damage, and there’s no better way of doing that than with a protective case. But which case is the best one for you? There are a lot on offer, from thin clear cases to large rugged covers. Here are some of the best OnePlus 7T cases to keep your phone safe.
If you’re looking for a protective case with a unique look, then it’s hard to go wrong with Ringke. The Fusion X case is a classic, and while its design may not be for everyone, it’s striking and protective in equal measure, and a great price to boot. A clear back panel protects against scratches, dirt, and other hazards, while the soft bumper around the edge helps to guard against damage from drops and bumps. A great case, and well worth your time to check out.
Like the OnePlus 7T, the Spigen Tough Armor is one of the best value cases on the market. The case provides a dual-layer protection design with TPU and polycarbonate material. Compared to most rugged cases, the Tough Armor has a smooth rubberized finish, making it very comfortable to grip. You’ll be able to immerse yourself in the gorgeous 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED display with the built-in kickstand. For $15, this is one of the most versatile cases available.
If you’re a fan of the glacial matte finish of the OnePlus 7T, then you’ll probably want to grab a clear case to show it off. But clear cases are notorious for yellowing over time, and you feel a layer of plastic instead of your actual phone. The Rhinoshield bumper case solves those issues. Known for its open-back design, the case features a thick impact-resistant bumper that surrounds all sides of the phone. With military-grade certification (MIL-STD 810G), the case can withstand drops from up to 11 feet. The best part — the case is lightweight but still effective.
Cases can be bulky and make an already big phone uncomfortable to hold. That’s where MNML comes in. As the name implies, the MNML Thin case is minimal, slim, and light as a feather. However, the name also applies to the amount of protection it provides. This isn’t for those looking for drop protection or multilayered build quality, but for casual users with a more passive lifestyle. Luckily, the case will prevent the back and sides of the phone from getting scratches and scuffs.
OnePlus seems to specialize in beautiful phones, and the OnePlus 7T is no exception. So there’s no judgment here if the idea of obscuring your phone behind a case makes you balk in horror. Thankfully, you don’t have to. Olixar’s ultra-thin case is completely clear, so there’s no barrier to your phone’s good looks. Of course, that means you sacrifice some protection, and this case won’t provide the same security as a bulkier case. But the TPU still provides decent enough everyday protection against bumps and keeps dirt away from your
Soft TPU isn’t to everyone’s tastes, and if you like a thin but hard case, then check out Anccer’s latest in its Colorful Series. Made from hard polycarbonate, the case should hold up well against scratches and dirt, and the gravel-like finish should also mean it’s easier to grip. A slight rise around the camera protects that vulnerable area from harm, while the selection of colors allows you to pick a style that suits you. On the downside, the hard material won’t be very good at absorbing impacts, so it’s not really a case for the clumsy — but it’s thin, light, and comes in a delightful range of colors.
The Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Series is the Swiss Army knife of cases. It has a built-in kickstand, an attachable screen protector, a rubberized port cover, and even a rotating holster. The 360-degree design makes the case one of the most durable ones in the market without compromising touch sensitivity. For $20, this is an easy recommendation if you want to maintain the pristine and mint condition of your OnePlus 7T.
We love carbon fiber. It’s the material of the future — lightweight but extremely strong. It’s a favorite of sci-fi, and for that reason, it’s often seen on cases. Well, carbon fiber-style anyway. While not the real thing, this case from Orzero does a good job of mimicking carbon fiber, with a carbon fiber-style cloth laid over hard polycarbonate and a softer TPU frame. The combination of materials means this case has good protection against a variety of threats, while the cloth feels nice in your hand. The edges are reinforced, while the camera lens is similarly elevated, protecting it from dirt and scratches. It’s expensive for a case like this, mind you, but the dual-layer protection is solid.
Feitenn’s shockproof case doesn’t fit the bill for a clear case at first glance, thanks to the thick black bumper around the edge — but the hard polycarbonate back panel is totally clear, and allows your phone to shine through. That combination of materials is impressive, and offers protection against drops, bumps, scratches, and more. It’s relatively thin and lightweight for the protection it offers, and best of all, it’s not that expensive.
