Carrier-specific device redesigns are something we haven’t come across for a long time. Unfortunately, that seems to have happened with the Verizon OnePlus 8, aka the OnePlus 8 5G UW. It’s a difference that is barely noticeable — the volume rocker has moved slightly. However, that is enough to create a problem when using form-fitting and precise cases and covers. Basically, you’ll need cases specifically made for the Verizon OnePlus 8. Here are your options!

To reiterate, there are quite a few options if you’re looking for cases for the OnePlus 8 Pro and the “standard” OnePlus 8 model that you’ll get unlocked or from other networks. This list is specifically and only for the Verizon OnePlus 8.

Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of the best Verizon OnePlus 8 cases regularly as new options launch.

Speck Presidio Pro

Speck Presidio Pro for Verizon OnePlus 8

The Speck Presidio Pro combines an impact-resistant polycarbonate shell and a shock-absorbing interior to keep the phone safe from bumps and drops. A soft-touch finish on the outside doesn’t get scratched easily and adds to the grip. Raised bezels around the screen, covered buttons, reinforced corners, and Microban antimicrobial technology (that reduces bacteria by 99%) add to the protective capabilities of the case.

OnePlus Karbon bumper

Karbon Bumper Case for Verizon OnePlus 8

While you won’t be able to use OnePlus’ other official cases with this version of the phone, Verizon users aren’t left out completely. You can pick up this Karbon bumper case that is compatible with the Verizon OnePlus 8. The bumper case is quite protective and is made with an impact-resistant kevlar. It gives complete all-around coverage with raised bezels, covered buttons, and precise cutouts for the alert slider, charging port, and rear camera.

Poetic Revolution

Poetic Revolution Series Designed Case for OnePlus 8 5G UW

If you’re looking for one of the best rugged cases for the Verizon OnePlus 8, the Poetic Revolution Series is very popular. It offers a full-body dual-layer design that can withstand plenty of torture. It even comes with a solid screen protector and a kickstand for more functionality.

Tudia Merge

TUDIA DualShield

The Tudia Merge is a durable option that allows you to add a pop of color to your OnePlus 8. Available in blue, black, slate, and rose gold, the case combines a TPU bumper with a tough polycarbonate shell for maximum protection. Raised edges protect the screen and camera cutout, and rubber buttons provide added security around the bumper case. Tudia’s Merge case is a slim option that’s MIL-STD certified for drops.

Spigen Rugged Armor

Spigen Rugged Armor

Spigen makes great cases for just about any device on the market, and the Rugged Armor for the OnePlus 8 is a perfect TPU example. It comes in matte black, but carbon fiber details add a touch of style to the finish. You can easily apply and remove the TPU frame in just seconds, and the spider web pattern on the inside helps absorb impacts. The tactile button covers are comfortable and responsive, and a raised lip around all openings adds even more protection.
