The OnePlus 8 Pro is a pretty impressive device, even now a few months after it has launched. It’s still one of the best phones of 2020. And if you’re buying a new one, it’s time to find the right case for your new OnePlus 8 Pro.
Which include some cases at just about every price point. From those that are around $5, up to around $50. So depending on what you like, there’s something for everyone.
These cases are going to protect the glass-backed OnePlus 8 Pro, which is why they are important and the best. Whether you want something that is pretty thin and will keep from making your OnePlus 8 Pro even bigger. Or something that is very thick and will protect your OnePlus 8 Pro from drops, dings and other things.
The OnePlus Sandstone Bumper case is one of the best cases for the 8 Pro, because it is a first party case. It was made by the same company that made the OnePlus 8 Pro. So it’s going to fit really well.
Of course, Sandstone is pretty iconic for OnePlus, as the OnePlus One had a sandstone back. So it’s a bit of nostlagia for true OnePlus fans. But it also adds a ton of grip to the back of the OnePlus 8 Pro. As Sandstone is very easy to hold onto. So you won’t ever need to worry about it slipping out of your hands. Now that, is a good thing.
This year, OnePlus is offering the Sandstone Bumper Case in two colors: Black and Cyan. So you can pick and choose which color you want.
The Spigen Rugged Armor is always a really great case for any phone. It is a somewhat rugged case from Spigen, that will keep your phone protected. But it’s not quite as good as something from Otterbox. And it’s also not very thick. Which is definitely a good thing.
This case is basically a TPU case, but a bit thicker. It has a carbon fiber look at the bottom and the top, to give it some character. And it also has a pretty sizeable lip over the display to protect it. This means that if you were to drop the phone, the display would be protected by the Spigen Rugged Armor. And that is pretty important. After all, that’s why you buy a case for your smartphone.
Getting a somewhat rugged case for just $13 is definitely worth it. And The Spigen Rugged Armor is a good option.
The OnePlus 8 Pro Karbon Fiber Bumper is one of the best looking cases available for the 8 Pro right now. It’s got a karbon fiber back that looks incredible. It also is pretty thin. Now the downside to having a case that looks this thin is definitely the fact that it won’t be as protective as the Spigen Rugged Armor.
In fact, the OnePlus 8 Pro Karbon Fiber Bumper doesn’t even cover the display. So you’d better make sure you hold onto this one. But on the bright side, it means that you can still access the buttons and the alert slider on the right side of the phone. Which is one of OnePlus’ key features, to be completely honest.
This might not be the perfect case for the OnePlus 8 Pro, but it is definitely one of the better looking options on the market right now. And even though it is a bit more expensive than the sandstone bumper from OnePlus, it’s worth the price.
The Tudia Merge might look like a pretty plain looking smartphone case, but this is what makes it stand out. It’s a dual-layer case. Which makes it thicker than some others. But the reason for this is because it has a soft TPU layer that goes against the phone to protect the glass back. And then a hard layer on the outside to absorb the impact when you drop your phone (by mistake, of course).
Because of this, the Tudia Merge is a bit thicker. But it also adds some grip to the back of the phone. Which makes it much easier to hold onto. Now that is definitely a big deal here. Especially since the Onyx Black color of the OnePlus 8 Pro is glossy. While the other colors are matte. All of them are very slippery in the hand, unfortunately.
If you are worried about dropping your phone, Tudia Merge is definitely the one to get.
The Ringke Fusion-X is great for those that do drop their phones a lot. As this one is made for impact resistance. With the reinforced sides and the reinforced corners. It’ll make sure that you’re brand new OnePlus 8 Pro does not break or shatter when it hits the ground.
It’s also great for those that are looking for a somewhat clear case for their new smartphone. As you’re getting a clear case, but with the black corners and sides that are reinforced. Which still allows you to show off that incredible look of the OnePlus 8 Pro. Especially if you got in the Ultramarine Blue as shown above.
The Ringke Fusion-X is also one of the cheaper cases on this list, that is going to do a good job at protecting your shiny new OnePlus 8 Pro. Which makes it a no-brainer purchase for a lot of people.
If you’re looking for a clear case for your new OnePlus 8 Pro, look no further than the Pulen TPU Case. This is a clear TPU case that is pretty thin, but still allows you to show off that Glacial Green or Ultramarine Blue color of the OnePlus 8 Pro. Or even the Onyx Black if you went with the boring color.
This one does have buttons available for you to use the power and volume rocker, as well as a cut out for the alert slider. So you’ll still be able to use that, which is definitely a good thing here.
As far as protection goes, the Pulen TPU Case does a good job there too. It offers up shock absorption, so if you do drop your phone, the case will take the damage. That way your new OnePlus 8 Pro is not damaged and you can keep using it. After all, that’s why you buy a case anyways.
Those that are looking for a TPU case, that isn’t too thick, but does add some grip to the OnePlus 8 Pro. Then look no further than the Osophter Flexible TPU Case. We’d even say it’s one of the best cases for the OnePlus 8 Pro, hands down.
The Osophter Flexible TPU Case comes in a number of colors. Including red, blue, gray and black. So no matter your style, there’s a color available for you. Now it does look a lot like the Spigen Rugged Armor, with the carbon fiber towards the bottom of the phone. But it adds in the brushed aluminum look, which frankly, looks really incredible. Not to mention it is available in a lot more colors than Spigen has.
If you are looking for a really good TPU case for your OnePlus 8 Pro, then you really can’t go wrong with the Osophter Flexible TPU Case. And at just $8, it’s definitely the best case available, for its price.
