The OnePlus 8 Pro will likely get all the attention, but the OnePlus 8 offers an excellent, and more importantly affordable, alternative. If you buy this relatively budget-friendly flagship, you will want to keep it undamaged for as long as possible. Here are some of the best OnePlus 8 cases you can get right now.
Note: If you get the OnePlus 8 from Verizon, these cases will not work with your device. Check out our roundup of the best cases for the Verizon OnePlus 8 (5G UW) instead.
The best OnePlus 8 cases:
Official OnePlus bumper cases
OnePlus does a great job when it comes to first-party accessories for its smartphones. There are already some excellent cases available for the OnePlus 8. The official bumper case is the more protective of the two types of cases the company makes.
They give you complete all-round coverage with raised bezels, covered buttons, and precise cutouts for the alert slider, charging port, and rear camera.
There are a few different versions of the bumper case available for the OnePlus 8. A sandstone version gives you all the grip you can get with the textured finish. There are also cyan and purple color variants this time around to complement the same colorways of the phone.
The Karbon bumper is made with an impact-resistant kevlar and TPU nylon variant is also available that is built with shock-absorbing and durable nylon strands. This case feels great when holding the phone and adds a touch of style as well. OnePlus also released a clear case for the first time, which certainly makes sense since these are some good-looking phones.
Spigen Liquid Air
The Air is an excellent thin and light case from Spigen that’s form-fitted to maintain a slim profile. A patterned back with an anti-slip matte finish helps with the grip and it utilizes air cushion technology for impact resistance. A slightly raised lip keeps the display and rear camera safe as well.

The Poetic Affinity case combines a hard shell and an impact-resistant bumper with reinforced corners to provide military-grade (MIL-STD 810G-516.6) protection for your phone. The raised ridges on the back have a matte finish to keep them scratch-free. An extended lip keeps the display, rear camera, and fingerprint scanner free from damage.

You also get covered buttons and precise cutouts for everything else.

The Spigen Rugged Armor is one of the best OnePlus 8 cases you can buy. It offers excellent protection without adding too much bulk or thickness by utilizing air cushion technology and a spider-web pattern on the inside for shock dispersion. A raised lip keeps the display and camera safe and you also get covered buttons.
The Ringke Fusion-X comes with a dual-layer design that offers a lot of protection. The hard polycarbonate back is transparent and lets you show off the color and design of the phone. The sides and corners are reinforced with a TPU bumper for added drop protection and you also get a raised lip around the display. The case comes with a built-in lanyard hole to connect wrist and neck-straps as well.

The UAG Plasma is a feather-light case for the OnePlus 8 that combines a hard outer shell and an impact-resistant core. A raised rubber lip and reinforced corners add to the protection as well. The case meets MIL-STD 810G-516.6 drop-test standards but is thin enough to let you wirelessly charge the phone.
Spigen Tough Armor
The Spigen Tough Armor offers dual-layer protection with the combination of a soft TPU core and a hard polycarbonate shell. It’s one of the best rugged cases for the OnePlus 8 you can get, coming with a MIL-STD 810G-516.6 certification for drop protection. The case also has a built-in kickstand that lets you prop the phone up in the landscape orientation.
PHNX MNML Case
If you want the absolute thinnest Oneplus 8 case on the market then look no further than the PHNX MNML Case. At just 0.35mm thin, you’ll barely even notice that you have a case on your phone. The case works with wireless chargers, is branding free and has protective camera cutouts. The MNML Case sells for $27 and is available in 3 colors, frosted black, white and matte black.
