Top ten best cases for the OnePlus 6T

OnePlus launched its latest handset, the OnePlus 6T on October 29th, improving upon its predecessor with the inclusion of a bigger battery, a smaller notch, and an in-display fingerprint reader. With its all-glass design available in Midnight Black and the slippery Mirror Black finish, the OnePlus 6T is a phone that could benefit from a protective case. Luckily for you, we’ve done the legwork for you and found the best cases for the OnePlus 6T that we could find.

OnePlus 6T Protective Case

Over the years, OnePlus has made some great cases for its handsets, and this time is no different; the pick of the bunch is the Protective Case in Karbon and Sandstone finishes. The Karbon finish is made from the sexy Kevlar material while the Sandstone variant is made of polycarbonate. Both models are lightweight with raised edges to protect the phone’s display when laid on flat surfaces. You can grab the Sandstone and Karbon cases directly from OnePlus for $20.95 and $25.95 respectively.

    Do any of these cases have a low bottom edge to give your fingers room to navigate using screen navigation gestures without scraping your thumb everytime?

      They all seem to have raised bezels to protect the display when laid face down, so I would say no.
