The Huawei Mate SE is a really solid offering in the budget space. It’s priced around $250 and sports an 18:9 display along with a dual camera setup around back. Both of those features are usually reserved for flagship phones, so it’s quite a deal.
If this description sounds familiar, it’s because the Honor 7X can be described the same way. In fact, the two are identical in appearance (with a minor cosmetic difference at the camera module on the back). The Huawei Mate SE has a bit more RAM and more onboard storage, but most importantly, they share the same cases. So when you’re looking at items on this list, and they say “Honor 7X” as well, you’ll know why.
TopACE transparent cover
A nice transparent cover is a great way to protect your phone while still enjoying the design of the phone. The Huawei Mate SE is a fine looking phone with an aluminum build usually reserved for flagships. This clear TPU case is soft and durable, protecting your phone from drops, scrapes, and scratches, and includes precision cutouts so you can access all of the ports on your phone without having to remove the case. A dot pattern on the inside of the case helps prevent fingerprints and smudges.
EasyAcc soft TPU case
Another clear phone case worth checking out comes to us from EasyAcc. This clear case neatly protects your phone from accidental drops with a nice grippy soft TPU cover. A microdot pattern on the inside helps your phone case stay clean — fingerprint and bubble free. The case is simply to put on and take off. Raised bezels on both sides provide some protection for the camera and screen as well. This is a solid option for keeping your phone safe.
TopACE ultra slim hard cover
Hard shell polycarbonate cases are really great for keeping your phone safe without adding a lot of bulk. If that’s your priority, this PC case from TopACE is just what the doctor ordered. This super-thin case gives your phone a hard protective layer against scratches and scrapes, and is precision-designed to help protect your camera as well with a small lip. The case just snaps on and it’s ready to go. It also comes in three different colors.
KuGi TPU Case
KuGi has a great bumper case ready to protect your phone. This bumper is made from high-quality TPU material with a very grippy edge design, further preventing accidental drops. On the back, you’ll find precision cutouts for the fingerprint sensor and dual camera module. Plus there’s a nice looking leather pattern, complete with stitching which gives your phone a classic look and feel. It also comes in four different colors, so you can find the one that’s best for you.
Tekcoo hybrid case
For a little more protection, Tekcoo has a thicker bumper case which will help protect your phone against drops and scratches and breaks. This dual layer case has a soft TPU lining with a harder polycarbonate outer shell, providing the benefits of shock absorption and impact resistance. A lip around the front of the case helps protect your screen in the event of a face-down fall. Plus, the hexagon pattern on the hard shell gives the phone a grippy texture and a cool look. The case is available in six different colors and designs.
TopACE rugged rubber hard back case
TopACE has another way to protect your phone, this time with a more rugged dual-layer design. This is a neat, futuristic-looking case with a built-in kickstand. Let’s face it, all cases should have a built in kickstand for hands-free media viewing. This case comes in four different colors for the backplate while the TPU sleeve remains black. The case has an anti-skid smart design making it less prone to drops or falls and it doesn’t add a lot of bulk to your phone, which is always desirable. Overall, we think it’s one of the nicest Huawei Mate SE cases out there.
Linkertech rugged dual layer hybrid case
If you want something really ruggedized and ready to go, Linkertech has a case for you. This dual-layered case can handle a lot of stress from drops or scratches, and it has a big lip around the screen to keep the front safe as well. The super-grippy texture on the back and side of this case will ensure the phone doesn’t go anywhere you don’t want it to go. Of course, like all good cases, this one has a kickstand built in for media viewing. It also comes in three different colors, so you can find one that suits your style.
Dux Ducis wallet case
If you want something with a little more style, you can check out this case from Dux Ducis. This is a classic PU leather wallet case with a single card slot on the inside to hold ID or a credit card. The nice part about a wallet case is that it surrounds the phone in protection — including the screen. Cutouts on the back allow access to the fingerprint sensor and a thicker case helps protect the camera modules. The wallet case also serves as a kickstand for hands free media viewing, which is an extra bonus.
HOOMIL PU Leather Case
Hoomil has another wallet case you can check out. This one only comes in the black, but it looks great. The case is made from PU leather and has a slim TPU case on the inside for maximum protection. This wallet case has two card holders on the inside, and a pocket for some cash or receipts. Add to that a magnetic closure and this is a great wallet case to pick up and leave your normal wallet at home. Finally, the case itself works as a kickstand for hands-free media viewing.
Newdery 5000mAh Battery Case
Sometimes you need a lot of power on the go. But battery packs and the like make it difficult to continue using your phone. Newdery has a 5,000mAh battery case you can pick up to keep your phone charged for days. This battery case more than doubles your phone’s battery capacity. An LED indicator on the back shows you how much power is left in the pack. A built in Micro-USB port allows you to charge the case while it’s on your phone. Plus it’s a case, so it’ll protect your phone from drops and scratches while keeping you powered on the go.
