The OnePlus 9 is shaping up to be one of the best phone values of the year. With top-end specs and a price tag that is well below $800 right now. Whereas most other smartphones are closer to $1,000 with the Snapdragon 888 5G inside. It’s not as fragile as the more expensive OnePlus 9 Pro, but you’re still going to want to grab a case for your OnePlus 9.
And luckily, we have rounded up the very best cases for the OnePlus 9, that are currently available. As always, this list will get updated as more cases are made available for the device.
If you haven’t bought or pre-ordered your OnePlus 9 yet, you can do so here.
Spigen Liquid Air Armor
The Spigen Liquid Air Armor is a lightweight case for the OnePlus 9, that also offers some great protection for this one. It does also add some grip on the back and the sides of the phone. So it makes the OnePlus 9 less likely to slip out of your hands.
It’s only available in matte black, which looks great on all of the OnePlus 9 colors.
OnePlus 9 Karbon Bumper Case
Now this one, is a fan favorite. It’s OnePlus’ carbon fiber bumper case, and it’s back for the OnePlus 9 this year. This one isn’t as thick as the “Unique” case above, so it’s better for those that prefer thinner cases.
The Karbon case does add some nice grip to the phone, so it’s less likely to slip out of your hands. That’s always a good thing, to be quite honest. And it has cut outs for all of the right things like the camera, charging port, and the buttons.
OnePlus 9 Sandstone Bumper Case
Sandstone is the material that was used on the original OnePlus One all of those years ago, and OnePlus still sticks to its roots. By releasing a Sandstone case every year. It does offer a pretty interesting feel onto your phone, and perhaps the most grippy of the three cases that OnePlus offers for its smartphones.
It feels a bit like sandpaper, but not as rough. And once you wear it in a bit, it does feel much softer, but still easy to hold onto.
The Parallax is a pretty popular case, that Caseology makes for almost every smartphone that gets released. And it’s a really good looking case, that is dual-layered.
So there’s a soft layer that goes against the phone and then a hard outer-shell – mostly around the sides of the phone. This allows it to take more impact when/if you drop your phone. The Parallax is also a 3D pattern on the back of the case that will allow for you to hold onto it a whole lot easier.
OtterBox Symmetry Clear Series Case
This is a particularly good case for those that are prone to dropping their phone often, and/or want to still show off the design of the OnePlus 9. This is the OtterBox Symmetry Clear Series Case, and while it’s not cheap, it is one of the most protective cases you’ll find. With reinforced sides and corners. It is also completely clear to show off that Morning Mist color of the OnePlus 9.
It’s definitely worth the price, especially if you are serious about protecting your smartphone.
If you’re clumsy, or are prone to dropping your phone a lot, then the TUDIA DualShield is the case to get. And it’s still only $15.
This case is a dual-layer case, like some of the others on this list. So it has a soft inner-shell and then a hard outer-shell. Which allows it to handle the impact of being dropped. So you won’t need to worry about your phone shattering or even breaking, if you do drop it. Still not a good idea to drop it, but it is nice insurance.
QITAYO Crystal Clear Case
QITAYO makes a pretty good looking clear case for the OnePlus 9 here. Which is great for those that really want to show off the design of their new smartphone.
This OnePlus 9 clear case balances the clarity, protection and grip perfectly, soft to install and remove.Fits in all the important factors at a lower cost.
anccer Slim Case for OnePlus 9
This super slim case from anccer offers a slim unibody case in a few different colors and still has full-body protection. So you can put this on your OnePlus 9 and not worry about it getting damaged. Which is why this has made our list of the best cases for OnePlus 9.
Because it is slim and lightweight, it does not add a lot of bulk to your phone, making it easier to put in your pocket or your bag. And less likely to slip out of your hands. This case is available in green, blue, black and rose gold colors.
