The OnePlus Nord is the company’s newest and also the most hyped product in a long time. After years of ramping up the prices for their phones and going from making true flagship killers to literal flagships itself, OnePlus has finally decided to go back to the roots. While the OnePlus Nord has a mixed response when it comes to the mass media and its consumers, it is still quite a good looking device that doesn’t break your bank.
While the OnePlus Nord manages to undercut many of the mid-range smartphones in terms of premium-ness and features that it offers, it still has had some bad press for having a questionable build. Although the front and back of the Nord are covered with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5, the sides are all plastic. In a bend test, the Nord seemed to fail miserably and that is something nobody wants to see happen with their brand new phone. If that’s the case, this is the perfect read for you! We have compiled a list of some of the best OnePlus Nord Cases and Covers that you can buy in 2020 for the best mix of protection and feel!

Top 6 OnePlus Nord Cases and Covers
It is good to note that the OnePlus Nord is still a relatively very new phone and it doesn’t help that it isn’t available in places other than Europe and India. This restricts the number of interested case manufacturers by a huge amount. However, the few cases that have popped up for the OnePlus Nord seem promising and we have only picked the top ones out of the bunch. With that out of the way, enjoy the read!
Grip Case by Dbrand
Kicking the list off, we have one the best solutions for protecting your OnePlus Nord against drops and scratches while still keeping the premium look of your phone. The Grip series of cases by Dbrand has been on the rise ever since they were first released, and they still remain to be one of the best options out there if you want a perfect blend of protection and aesthetics. The Grip case features a rugged material going around the edges of the case which absorbs most of the drops to the ground.
What makes the Grip case by Dbrand a unique option to consider is the fact that you can still add a skin to its back to further customize your OnePlus Nord. You can select from their vast library of premium phone skins that you can later stick to the back of the compatible Grip case. The Dbrand Grip case for the OnePlus Nord starts shipping from September and does have a slightly higher price tag on this list, coming at $29.95 for the case and an additional $9.95 for a skin addon.Dbrand Grip Case
Sandstone Case by OnePlus
No matter how premium smartphones get with their glass sandwich builds, nothing beats the good old days when OnePlus used a sandstone backing for their phones. Luckily, they have always continued to make cases with the same texture for their newer releases and the OnePlus Nord is no exception. The Sandstone case for the OnePlus Nord is one of the best ways to add the most grip while still keeping the entire form factor sleek and pocketable.
I do personally use the black sandstone case by OnePlus for my Nord and absolutely love the amount of grip and protection it offers at minimal thickness. There is also a blue version of the same case that might make your phone pop out more thanks to its vibrancy. Overall, as a great mix of durability, grip and looks, the OnePlus Sandstone case for the Nord should definitely be an option you ought to consider. It goes for only €18 or 790 rupees on their website.Sandstone Case
Up next is an option that you should definitely consider if you want a sleek case but one that offers a whole ton of grip and protection as well. The iBetter case for the OnePlus Nord is a thin flexible shockproof case that also happens to look really good. It has highly precise cutouts for the cameras, USB C port, speaker and the microphones. It also features a raised lip to the front to protect your screen against scratches while your phone is face down on a surface. The same is the case with the camera cutout at the rear to protect the lenses from scratches and smudges. The buttons are tactile and feel premium as well. All in all, for a mere €7.59 on Amazon UK, we don’t think you’ll find a better deal!
Foluu Liquid Silicone Case
When it comes to grip and protection, nothing beats a good old silicone case. However, due to their nature of being messy and degrading quicker than other options, they aren’t usually people’s first option. Well, the Foluu case solves both of these issues featuring a really clean feel to the case as well as reinforced materials that will last you for years together. It has dual-layer protection for the edges of your OnePlus Nord, keeping it abrasion-free. It also looks pretty sleek with the uni-body silicone design all around the phone.
The raised lip and camera cutout protection also go a long way in avoiding scratches to the front and on the lenses. The microphone holes, USB C port and the speaker all have precise cutouts and so does the alert slider. The buttons also feel tactile and responsive with the case on. Overall, for just €8.99 on Amazon UK, this is a great option to consider if you want 360 protection without making your phone feel too bulky.
Clear Bumper Case by OnePlus
In case you own the shiny blue marble variant of the OnePlus Nord, it would be a shame to have it covered inside of a case that masks away the really cool color. Or if you just want to showcase the back of your OnePlus Nord, then you should definitely give the clear bumper case a shot. It is built and sold officially by OnePlus itself, so the fit is highly precise and the build material is also superior to the other clear bumper cases on the market.
It costs the same amount of €18 or 790 rupees on Amazon or OnePlus’ own website. The case is transparent and thus showcases the logo and the OnePlus text alongside the marble blue or onyx gray color of your OnePlus Nord. It has a slight lip to the front to protect the front glass from scratches when placed face down on surfaces. It has good padding to the sides and all the corners and it seems like it could protect your phone against a few drops. Overall, for not that much money the clear bumper case is a great choice to flaunt your new phone!
Foluu Canvas Flip Case
Ending our list of some of the best OnePlus Nord Cases and covers to buy in 2020, we have one for all the flip cover lovers out there. While using a flip cover does completely change the way your phone looks and feels, the added benefits outweigh the cons. The Foluu Canvas Flip case is a great option to go for if you are in the market for a flip cover for your OnePlus Nord. It features a great finish on the surface with a soft TPU design that folds effortlessly.
Upon flipping the case open, you gain access to 4 slots where you can store your cards as well as some cash. Even when the case is closed, it does make your phone seem premium thanks to the unique texture that it bears. Easily the best advantage of having a flip case such as this is the ability to use it as an instant kickstand for your phones to watch videos or movies. Overall, durability and functionality-wise, this case is one of the best flip cover options to go for. It sells for a reasonable £9.99 on Amazon UK.
