The best OnePlus 7T cases and covers

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.

Ringke Fusion X

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.

Spigen Tough Armor Case

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.

Rhinoshield CrashGuard Bumper Case

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.

MNML Thin Case

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.

Olixar Ultra-thin Clear Case

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 OnePlus 7T. While not a case to take hiking, this is still a good choice.

Anccer Colorful Series Slim Hard Case

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.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Series Case

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.

Orzero Carbon Fiber-style Case

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 Shockproof Protective Case

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.

Editors' Recommendations

The Pixel 8 just leaked, and it has one big thing I can’t wait for
Google Pixel 8 in depicted in white.

For another year, Google’s next-gen phones are out in the wild months ahead of their grand reveal at a fancy event. Just a day ago, the Pixel 8 Pro was unceremoniously leaked, and now, the standard Pixel 8 has also received the same treatment. OnLeaks and MySmartPrice have shared reported renders and a 360-degree video depicting the upcoming Google phone from all angles.
The design changes are subtle, but easy on the eyes. Just like the Pixel 8 Pro, the corners are once again more rounded on the Pixel 8. The frame is metallic, and there’s a horizontal camera strip at the back with a metallic luster on top. Akin to the Pixel 7, we get two cameras on the Pixel 8, sitting in a pill-shaped cutout.

Another small aesthetic tweak is the earpiece grill at the top, which is now more prominent than what we saw on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. If the current-gen Pixels are any indication, the Pixel 8 is going to offer an excellent in-hand feel. Talking about in-hand feel, though, it appears that Google is once again pandering to the small phone loyalists.

Bixby vs. Google Assistant: Which AI is better for you?
google assistant mobile.

AI digital assistants and chatbots (like ChatGPT) are huge now, and there are more than a few to choose from. If you, like many Android phone owners, have a Samsung device, then you have the choice between two AI assistants: the Google-backed Google Assistant and Samsung's Bixby.
What are the differences between the two assistants, and which one is better for you? Is Bixby better than Google Assistant, or should you  go all-in with Google's AI? We compared Bixby and the Google Assistant to find out. 
Bixby vs. Google Assistant: device integration

Google Assistant is available on all Google Nest and Home products, including Android TVs, lights, security cams, speakers, and more. Google Assistant is also available on Android Auto, so you can use the virtual assistant to execute commands when you’re driving. Google Assistant is available on other brands' smart devices too, so you can use Google's voice assistant on Lenovo's Smart Home System. You'll also find it in all of the best Android phones, but did you know you can also download and use it on Apple iPhones as well?
Samsung’s Bixby, on the other hand, is limited to Samsung devices, like the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It's also limited to only being able to control other devices via the SmartThings app, rather than having native support. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it is more restricted. However, full functionality of Bixby is limited to newer devices, so unlike Google Assistant, which tends to be available to older devices, you'll need to keep upgrading to get the most out of Bixby.
This won’t matter much for users who’ve been using Samsung devices for years and want to continue investing in new Samsung products, but if you live with people using different Android devices, Google Assistant might be a better option for smoother integration across devices.
The winner is pretty clear here. Google Assistant is available on a lot more devices, including Apple iPhones, and helps you to create a comprehensive system for convenient use. 
Winner: Google Assistant
