Best case guide for the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro

Huawei launched its P20 and P20 Pro flagship smartphones on March 27 at an event in Paris, and despite some differences in hardware, both models sport glass panels front and back with some truly stunning finishes. You only need to take a look at either handset in the Twilight or Pink Gold colors to see that Huawei has kicked its design skills up a notch. One of the unfortunate side-effects of a glass finish front and back, though, is the increased fragility. Unlike aluminum, the glass panels can shatter or crack if not looked after carefully.

With that in mind, putting your brand new Huawei P20 or P20 Pro in a case is an easy fix, and luckily for you, we’ve done all the hard work for you and found a bunch of great cases for your Huawei P20 or P20 Pro smartphone.


 Spigen Rugged Armor

Starting with one the big names in smartphone accessories, we have Spigen’s Rugged Armor case for the Huawei P20. Constructed out of flexible TPU with an interior spiderweb pattern, the case has a raised lip to help protect the display when the phone is placed screen-down on a flat surface. The Air Cushion Technology provides shock absorption when the phone is dropped or knocked and the tactile buttons allow for easy access to the power and volume buttons. Available in Black, the Spigen Rugged Armor case can be had from Amazon for $12.99.

EasyAcc Crystal Clear

Next, we have EasyAcc’s Crystal Clear case that lets the beauty phone’s finish shine through. Available for both the P20 and the P20 Pro, the case is made of flexible TPU and boasts a slightly elevated camera cutout to help protect the rear camera lens from scratches. The dot pattern on the inside of the case helps prevent those unsightly watermarks that you often see when using clear cases and the cutouts for the controls allow for easy access. Available from Amazon in a single Clear color, the EasyAcc Crystal Clear case costs a very reasonable $7.99.
