Best Cases for the OnePlus 6

The OnePlus 6 launched on May 16th sporting flagship specifications, an all-glass design, and an affordable price of just $529 for the base 6GB/128GB model. Available in Midnight Black, Mirror Black, and the limited edition Silk White colors, the OnePlus 6 is sure to be another hit for the Chinese handset make. Of course, while the all-glass design is stunning to look at, it is also more vulnerable to life’s bumps and knocks. Luckily, there are a whole bunch of cases available for the OnePlus 6, and we’ve done the legwork for you by rounding up the best ones we could find after the break. 

Protective Case Sandstone

It makes sense to start with a case directly from the horse’s mouth, in this case, from OnePlus itself. The Protective Case is a shell-type case that focuses on being slim and light and maintaining the handset’s slim profile. Offering a ton of extra grip, the Protective Case is made of polycarbonate and has a raised front bezel to protect the phone’s display when laid on a flat surface. You can grab the Protective Case in Sandstone directly from OnePlus for just $19.95.
