The best OnePlus 8 cases and covers

The OnePlus 8 smartphone is a valuable hunk of glass and metal that starts at $700. At that price, you wouldn’t want it slipping from your fingers to splinter on a concrete sidewalk. To prevent that from happening, you’re going to need a protective case to shield it from the shocks of everyday wear and tear. Smartphone cases come in a range of styles and prices, from reasonably-priced thin, clear TPU cases to muscular military-grade protection. These are the best cases available for the OnePlus 8 so far.

It may not be cheap, but this case from UAG provides some pretty impenetrable protection for your phone. Built from three layers, including a hard outer shell and impact-resistant softer core, it has met military-grade standards [MIL-STD 810G 516.6] for drop testing, indicating that it will guard against most shocks and trauma. Somewhat surprisingly, it’s also pretty lightweight, being made of a composite material that offers strength without adding bulk. To make things as practical as possible, it includes oversized tactile buttons, as well ample cutouts for the OnePlus 8’s ports. A great all-rounder, even if its design isn’t as minimal as others.

Ringke Fusion X Case

Protecting those vulnerable edges and shielding the glass from harm is the main assignment for the Ringke Fusion X Case. The slender, clear cover is transparent but durable, while a rugged exterior TPU bumper boosts your grip to prevent accidents. Lanyard holes are located on the sides to attach your own straps for extra versatility and utility. The case is compatible with most screen protectors, including tempered glass and PET film.

Anccer for OnePlus 8 Case

The Anccer is a smooth, hard, shockproof, cushioned case made from advanced polycarbonate and designed to withstand drops, bumps, and shocks. Slim and lightweight, the cover is precisely cut to accurately fit the position of buttons for easy access to all ports and controls. A 0.3mm bumper hole specifically protects the phone’s camera lens.

Spigen Liquid Air Armor Case

Another attractive case from Spigen, this one offers full military-grade protection, despite being slim and lightweight. It includes air-cushioned materials that offer a high level of anti-shock protection, while its anti-slip matte surface means that you’re unlikely to accidentally drop your phone, even with damp fingers. It looks great, while it has also been cut to be as pocket-friendly and practical as possible.

Sucnakp OnePlus 8 Case

If edge-to-edge and anti-fingerprint protection of your OnePlus 8 phone are what you’re after, look no further than the Sucnakp. The soft TPU case offers full, easy-to-grip protection. The case installs easily and fits snugly with accurately-placed cutouts and raised bezels that allow direct access to all buttons.

Poetic Affinity Case

Here’s a case that has been military-grade drop tested to the MIL-STD 810G – 516.6 standard. You can therefore rest safe in the knowledge that it will protect your OnePlus 8 against the vast majority of accidents and slips likely to come your way, particularly when it incorporates an inner buffer layer for great shock absorption. It’s also scratch-proof as well as shock- and drop-proof, given that it’s made out of durable PC. At the same time, it comes with raised corners and edges, so that your screen isn’t damaged by any falls or impacts.

OnePlus Bumper Cases

When a company makes a smartphone, you can count on it to also make a great cover for it. In the case of OnePlus, the company is offering four different cover styles to choose from on its website. In addition to all the great third-party cases, also consider four first-party bumper cases as well. All OnePlus cases are currently available for pre-order and range in price from $25 to $40. Of particular interest is the classic Sandstone Bumper Case, which gives you all the style and grip you need and features a textured finish. It comes in cyan, purple, and black.
