8 Best OnePlus 3 Protective Cases and Covers

Last Updated: July 26, 2016

OnePlus recently outed its brand new flagship for 2016 dubbed OnePlus 3 and unlike last year, this year’s device seems right on the money. The device priced at $399 brings a brand new Optic AMOLED display, a brilliant 16 MP rear and 8 MP front camera, the powerful Snapdragon 820 processor and whooping 6 gigs of RAM. All of that encased in a beautiful aluminum design. Also, the company has got rid of its hate-worthy invite-only system, so good news all around.

Well, it’s all impressive, no doubt about that, and that might be the reason why the device has been gaining a lot of traction in the countries where it has launched. So, if you are one of the people who have bought the OnePlus 3, we are pretty sure you love the beautiful metal design. However, as we have come to expect, metal bodies can easily get scratched, plus they are on the slipper side. Now, we wouldn’t want our shiny new OnePlus 3 to take the fall, would we? Thus, here are some of the best OnePlus 3 protective cases and covers you should be buying:

1. Official OnePlus 3 Cases
