The OnePlus 2 looks like a bargain for the money, but it’s not so cheap that you can afford to risk dropping it without a good case to protect it. It’s also not the most exciting design we’ve ever seen, and the textured back cover could prove to be an acquired taste, so you might want to add a touch of style. That said, these are the best OnePlus 2 cases and covers currently available.
You can expect reasonable drop protection from this two-layer case. It combines a flexible, black TPU interior skin that’s reinforced from top and bottom, with a hard polycarbonate outer shell in black, red, mint, or metallic slate. The TPU absorbs shock, and there’s a raised lip on the front to protect the screen should your OnePlus 2 land face down. The button covers are also easy to find and press, and the openings for the ports, switch, and camera are accurate. It does add a bit of bulk, but that’s often the price of drop protection.
If you do love the look of your OnePlus 2, and you’re not keen on covering it up, then a transparent case could be just the ticket. This one is comprised of a hard, polycarbonate back panel, with a flexible TPU bumper that encompasses button covers and port plugs. There’s also a bezel around the camera opening to protect the lens. You get a screen protector in the box and there’s even a protective lip on the front. The bumper comes in either a clear or smoky black option.
Cases really don’t get much cheaper than this. It’s a really basic, thin, TPU case that’s flexible for an easy fit. You’ll find a soft-touch, matte finish that provides some extra grip and won’t pick up fingerprints. The volume and power buttons have covers, and there’s a gloss Diztronic logo further down on that spine. The switch has a cut-out, and there are openings for the camera and ports, too. There is also a small, protective bezel on the front to prevent the screen from touching surfaces if it lands face down, but you shouldn’t expect rugged drop protection from this case.
This official OnePlus offering is a classic, flip open, folio-style case. The hard polycarbonate back replaces your back cover for a slim fit, and there’s a fake leather or polyurethane, covering around it. The OnePlus 2 automatically wakes when you open the cover and sleeps when you close it. There’s also a handy slot on the inside for housing a single credit card or ID. You’ll also find a cut-out on the back for the camera, one on the front for the speaker, and unfettered access to buttons. It’s textured for a bit of added grip, but we wouldn’t count on it for drop protection. It comes in a choice of five different colors.
It would be impossible to describe this case as pretty, but it is practical. There’s an inner TPU case with button covers and openings for the ports and camera that comes in blue, black, red, or green. On top of that there’s a black exoskeleton made of tough polycarbonate. It’s chunky, with a grid pattern that really enhances grip, but it should stand up to knocks and falls. There’s also a handy fold-out stand on the back for propping your OnePlus 2 in the landscape position.
