Ever since 2017, we have seen a bevy of bezel-less phones with the OnePlus Nord being the latest phone to join the trend. While bezel-less phones are beautiful, they are also incredibly delicate and fragile, and you can't afford to be careless with them. In such cases, a phone case or cover is one of the many options to safeguard the phone against falls and drops.
Besides shielding from the impacts of falls, a simple case also does the added job of preventing scratches and other abrasions on the phone's surface. After all, you wouldn't want the phone's back or the display to be marred by scratches, right?
So, if you are looking for some cases and covers for the new OnePlus Nord, here are some of our recommendations.
If you do not want to stray out of the OnePlus ecosystem, the Sandstone Bumper Case is one of the best options. Since it's an in-house case, you do not have to worry about the case not fitting the phone. Besides giving it a slightly textured look at the back, the sandstone cover also aids in a better grip.
At the same time, the openings for ports and sensors are precise. The edges around the rear camera module are raised slightly to protect it from scratches and dust. At the same time, the case prevents 'phone-wobble' due to its even structure.
The sandstone cover for the OnePlus Nord has a TPU bumper that aids in a better grip and makes it easier to take the case off/on.
It's available in two colors - Cyan and Black. And yeah, the former looks amazing.
The next case on our list is the one by FanTing. If you are a fan of slim cases, you can't go wrong with this carbon fiber back case. It comes with a lightly brushed back that gives the phone a cool look and helps you grip your phone better. And the carbon texture at the top is the bonus.
The corners of the case are lined with air cushions to disperse the impacts of falls. And at the same time, the insides have web-like designs for easy heat dissipation.
Aside from that, the camera module and the fingerprint sensor also have raised lips to keep unnecessary scratches at bay.
Osophter Clear Case is a plain and simple transparent case for the OnePlus Nord. It's is a gel-based cover, which makes it easy to put on. It comes with raised corners and slightly raised edges at the front. While the raised corners are designed to bear the brunt of falls and drops, the raised edges shield the screen from damage when the phone is kept face down.
Wrapping a transparent case around a phone is one of the best ways to let the original color and the logo of the phone shine through. Unfortunately, they do not extend the same protection level as provided by a rugged case or armored case.
But on the upside, clear cases do not add much bulk and lets you keep the original profile of your phone.
Dbrand is no stranger to grippy cases and skins, and the one for the OnePlus Nord is no different. The case is made using shock-absorbing polymers and designed to make the phone more grippy while shielding the phone from impacts. The crux of this case is the Crescent Arc edges on the sides. This design extends military-grade protection to the screen if the phone happens to fall face-down.
Moreover, it's slim and light and doesn't add bulk to the phone. If we talk numbers, it adds only about 2mm thickness to the phone. Cool, I must say.
At the same time, you can also customize the rear of the case with a design of your liking.
Users browsing from India can check out the case by Riggear. This one brings the best of both worlds by combining a transparent case and a TPU case. Yep, you read that right. While the TPU bumpers give a better grip at the edges, the clear back lets your phone's color shine in all its glory.
Like most cases in this price range, the corners are fortified to break the impact of falls. What's more, it boasts of the MIL-STD 810G drop test.
Moreover, the side edges are raised ever so slightly to prevent scratches and scuff marks on the screen, and the same is true of the back camera.
