The pandemic didn’t slow OnePlus down in 2020, as it launched its third device — the OnePlus 8T. It’s 5G-ready, packs powerful performance hardware, and it’s an easy way to enter the Oxygen OS ecosystem at $749. If you have an older device, then it’s definitely worth the upgrade. However, you’ll want to protect your new purchase for a long time to come. Here are the best OnePlus 8T cases to do just that!


Best OnePlus 8T cases:

Editor’s note: All of these cases were available at the time of writing, but we’ll be sure to add new OnePlus 8T cases as we find them.

Quantum Bumper

Cases that show off your phone’s internals are a hot commodity, and OnePlus’ own Quantum Bumper is cut from the same cloth. It’s not a proper internal case, but it adds circuitry details on both the inside and outside for a layered effect. Better yet, it comes in Cyborg Cyan which should complement your Aquamarine Green OnePlus 8T nicely. Overall, it’s a simple bumper case made with TPU for impact absorption.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid OnePlus 8T case

Spigen offers an impressive number of cases for just about any phone on the market, and the OnePlus 8T is no exception. The Ultra Hybrid is our first pick, and it offers a blend of polycarbonate and TPU protection. It comes with a textured matte black bumper, and the clear back panel helps show off the color of your new phone. Spigen’s Ultra Hybrid case features a series of tactile button covers and precise cutouts to allow easy access.

Ringke Fusion-X

The Ringke Fusion-X is another case that we recommend for just about any phone. It features a unique geometric bumper that helps to set the case apart in a crowd. You can grab the bumper in either matte black or turquoise, and the back panel comes in either clear or black camouflage. No matter which version you choose, the Fusion-X comes with a pair of handy Quik Catch holes so you can add a lanyard.

Otterbox Symmetry case

If you’re accident-prone or you just want the toughest case on the block, the Symmetry from Otterbox is a top option. It’s slim but solid. The Symmetry is rated for three times more drops than MIL-STD 810G requires. Otterbox went for a single-piece design that should be easier than ever to apply or remove, and the antimicrobial layer helps keep harmful germs at bay. The Symmetry is made of polycarbonate and synthetic rubber for two-pronged protection.

Simicoo OnePlus 8T wallet case

The OnePlus 8T is no small phone. With a screen size of 6.55-inches, you might be looking for chances to free up some pocket space. Luckily, the Simicoo wallet helps double as both protection and a handy wallet with two card slots and a large cash pocket. You can choose from black, gray, red, and blue options. Each features a textured fabric cover and TPU bumper. The folding folio cover doubles as an adjustable kickstand if you’re looking to stream your favorite shows.

Spigen Tough Armor

We’re back to Spigen for another tough case, and this time we’re looking at the Spigen Tough Armor. It’s a larger, dual-layer hybrid option, and it’s only available in matte black. The soft TPU interior keeps your OnePlus 8T safe from drops, while the tough polycarbonate exoskeleton brushes off scratches without issue. Spigen’s Tough Armor even comes with a built-in kickstand to watch your favorite shows hands-free.

UAG Plasma

The next option on today’s list of the best OnePlus 8T cases is one to give Otterbox a run for its money. UAG’s Plasma relies on thick bumpers at the top and bottom for excellent drop resistance, and it meets MIL-STD 810G requirements. The Plasma case also features a honeycomb design on the interior to help handle impacts. It’s a great case if you’re hoping to show off the Aquamarine Green finish of your OnePlus 8T, thanks to its crystal-clear finish.

Poetic Guardian OnePlus 8T case

One final case to consider for your OnePlus 8T is the Poetic Guardian. It’s another two-piece hybrid option, and it combines crystal clear style with a rugged bumper. Poetic’s Guardian is also the only case on the list that features a built-in screen protector. The case offers excellent protection. However, it might take a minute or two to apply or remove the case due to the durable lip design. You can grab the case in blue, black, pink, or green.
