Irrespective of the price of the phone, protection is always vital to extend your phone’s life and for an unhindered experience. So after spending a fortune (or not) on buying a great smartphone like the new Poco F1, it’s also wise to invest in a good case, especially if you have no desire to dent the phone in every day use.
The Poco F1 is clearly a stunner when it comes to performance, and while it is built well, we are not confident it would survive being dropped from a height. So I’ve dug through Amazon and Flipkart to bring you a variety of protective cases in different styles and form factors to give you selection to choose from.
Notably, many renowned case makers like Spigen are yet to dive into the affordable flagship phenomenon and thus, the list has been compiled on the basis of how the covers look and their features. So if you’re not satisfied with the TPU case bundled with the Poco F1, you can check these out.
10 Best Poco F1 Cases and Covers
1. KAPAVER Shock-Proof Carbon Fiber Armor Black Case for Poco F1
If you’re all about finding a case that provides better grip, bold, rugged looks, and sharply chiseled lines, the shockproof case from KAPAVER should do the job for you. The case uses a layer of matte-finished TPU with an etched pattern that resembles carbon fiber. Not only does that improve the grip of the case, it also complements the matte look of the new Poco F1.
The cover has raised lips over the buttons to ensure that they remain unscathed over time. On the inside, the case has a cushioned padding to absorb shocks and reduce the impact on the body. Lastly, there cover also wraps around the edges of the display to protect it from directly succumbing to drops.

2. TheGiftKart Toughened Glass Case with Bumper for Poco F1
If looks matters to you as much as protection, this case with a toughened tempered glass back by TheGiftKart demands your attention. Although adding glass to a plastic phone makes the case more fragile the the phone, this one offers style that the others don’t. There’s a TPU bumper on the sides that should protect not only the smartphone but the glass back on the case too.
The openings for ports and for the button the Poco F1 look well cut while the case also removes the bump from the rear dual cameras. For me, this cover does the job, especially because it adds the missing factor of luxury to the new competitive flagship – Poco F1. The cover is available in black, red, pink, and white colors.

Like most others on this list, the cover also protects the buttons on the Poco F1 from getting scratched. Plus, if you’re on a thrift hunt, the additional saving of Rs 174 compared to the original case by Xiaomi should appeal to you.

8. FOSO Leather Texture TPU Case for Poco F1
I’m sure minimalism has a lot of takers, but premium looks never go out of fad either. Which is why if you want to grab other people’s attention with your new Poco F1, you can choose this soft TPU case which comes with a leather-like texture.
The case also does a good job of covering up the edges so the screen is defended against accidental drops and bumps. Additionally, the layer around the buttons is relatively thinner than the overall material, which should provide a more tactile response. Lastly, the design on the back is also intended to remove the heat from the smartphone and aid the LiquidCool technology which is already in place. We are not sure how accurate these claims are, but the look is certainly cool.

9. Tarkan Poco F1 Clear Case
The Poco F1 is not a stunning device but its colors and the Armored Edition variant with Kevlar definitely look good. So, if you are someone who wants to make sure that people see the back of your brand new Poco F1, you can get the Tarkan clear case. The transparent case features bumper case-like corners and raised edges on the front to better protect the phone’s display.
Apart from that, the Tarkan case is said to be shockproof, thanks to the AirCusion technology and it fits in perfectly on the Poco F1. The case here has 12 months of warranty as well, so that’s great.

10. Official Poco F1 Armoured Case
For those who desire the armoured edition of the Poco F1 but might not have the budget for it, Pocophone had also announced an armoured case. The case is likely to feature the same Kevlar design as the top-most variant and come with amber accents to make things more colorful and exciting.
The cover also has ridges along on both side and this is apparently to assist in dissipation of heat. It is yet to arrive and will cost Rs 799, which although is a significant investment in terms of covers, it is one that should pay off.
Best Cases and Covers to Keep Poco F1 Secure
The Poco F1 is built for performance and its specifications that promise a long life. To ensure that the smartphone matches up to your expectations, it is ideal to use a good case. And now that we’ve lined up some of the best ones, deciding should be easier for you. The company also offers an easy solution to the somewhat bland rear of the Poco F1 and that is a range of official skins just like Dbrand and Gadgetshieldz.
The skins will be offered in a variety of finishes and are priced at only Rs 299, and by doing so, Xiaomi and Pocophone are changing the dynamics of yet another market i.e. that of smartphone skins.
