13 Best OnePlus 5T Cases

These are the best OnePlus 5T cases to protect your phone and keep it looking new. Our buying guide will go over the different cases available and what they each have to offer. With a big new 6-inch AMOLED display on the 5T, a case is highly recommended.

In an effort to take on the Android and iPhone competition, the latest OnePlus 5T comes with a nearly bezel-free screen. This makes it look great, but also more fragile. The phone is still new so case options are somewhat limited. That said, we’ve found a few different styles from brands we know, use, and trust.

We have everything from thin cases, cheap options, kickstand cases, and heavy-duty protection. Our list details some cases as low as $5, which is better than paying $200+ to repair a broken phone. You’ll need to spend more to get the most durable cases, or upwards of $30 for something directly from OnePlus. We’ll continuously update this list once more cases become available.

While we recommend investing in a quality case from OnePlus themselves, even cheap $5-$10 TPU cases on Amazon are better than nothing. In fact, some of those cheap TPU cases offer the most protection. The more expensive options offer thicker and durable materials or a premium design with more features, like a wallet or kickstand.

And while the new OnePlus 5T looks nearly identical to the OnePlus 5 from earlier this year, even with a bigger screen, the design is different. That means you’ll need a new case if you’re upgrading from another OnePlus phone.

Additionally, many users skip buying a case because they don’t want to cover up the premium design. If so, consider one of our clear cases. We’re expecting more cases from top brands in the near future.

A case will help prevent damage or scratches to the dual cameras on the back of your phone, make it easier to hold and keep the 6-inch screen safe. While some of the biggest brands like Spigen and Incipio have yet to launch OnePlus 5 cases, owners still have more than a few options to choose from. We’ve done the hard work for you, so pick a case from our slideshow below.

OnePlus Sandstone Protective Case

Our first recommendation is a case by OnePlus themselves. They continuously offer excellent accessories for every phone released, including the OnePlus 5T.

One of the most popular OnePlus cases is the Sandstone case, which matches the styling of the original first few phones from the company. 

The Sandstone Protective hard case is the perfect blend of protection, style, and texture. Meaning it will keep your phone safe, it looks good, and the Sandstone finish on the back makes it very tactile and easy to hold. That way you won't accidentally drop this otherwise slippery phone. 

OnePlus reinforced the corners, and added raised edges and lips to the camera lens, fingerprint scanner, and screen to keep the entire phone safe. This is still one of my favorite cases ever released.

    I’m not a case guy. But I changed the look of the oneplus 5T with the Skinnova skins from the Gadgetshieldz.
