The OnePlus 6 is available now, so it seems like the perfect time to take a look at the best OnePlus 6 cases and accessories on the market. Even if you don't have the phone itself, skip down to the accessories section and find yourself a nice new addition for your Android phone!
Our first choice is this tough clear case from Olixar. The ExoShield offers excellent resistance against scratches and fares well against drops too, although thicker cases will of course provide even better protection. The case includes cutouts throughout for important features like the camera, fingerprint reader, buttons and ports. Meanwhile, the transparent design ensures that the mirror black, silk white or midnight black finish you've chosen remains perfectly visible. Nice one!
This sleek case transforms the look of your OnePlus 6 while adding nominal protection. With three materials on offer -- nylon, faux carbon fibre and ebony wood -- you can customise your OnePlus 6 to suit your needs. The case is light too, adding minimal weight and bulk to ensure that your OnePlus 6 remains easy to use at all times.
The Otterbox Case for the OnePlus 6 is a heavy case that provides excellent protection against drops, knocks and scratches. It uses a dual-layer system, combing silicone and polycarbonate elements, in order to keep your phone safe without compromising usability. However, it is worth noting that the case isn't compatible with some glass screen protectors. This case is available in indigo (left) and black.
This inexpensive case provides excellent resistance against drops and knocks, thanks to its tough dual-layer design. The case also comes with a stand built into its back, allowing you to rest the OnePlus 6 in landscape mode to watch videos, play games or check your notifications. Finally, ridges on the back and sides aid grip, making it less likely that your phone will slip out of your hand and meet an untimely end.
This polyurethane faux-leather flip cover provides excellent screen protection and lasting style, thanks to its classic leather design. The case supports flip to wake functionality, so your OnePlus 6 will automatically unlock when you open the case and lock when the case is closed. If you want a stylish look without spending a whole lot, this is a good choice.
This clever USB-C dock is a perennial favourite in these kinds of lists, thanks to its simple design, fast USB-C charging and low cost. Pro tip: hook this up to the quick charger that comes in the box to minimise your charging times.
This combination of case and screen protector provides all of the protection you need in one box. The glass screen protector provides long-lasting protection from a range of hazards like scratches and shattering, while the case keeps your OnePlus 6's glass body from getting damaged. There's also a lip around the screen to keep it safer. All in all, for £30 you're unlikely to find much better!
These shiny new headphones aren't available until early June, but they might be worth waiting for. According to The Verge's Vlad Savov, the headphones are perhaps the best in their class, and certainly for their price point, offering "engaging and exciting sound" while "exceed[ing] and rais[ing] my expectations for long-lasting fit and comfort." It all sounds pretty positive, and it's not too much of a surprise given how good OnePlus' second-generation wired Bullets were.
9. Olixar inVent Mini Portable Air Vent Car Holder
This barnacle of a car holder clings to your air vents, providing a stable platform for you to put your phone without blocking your view of the road or requiring you to dangerously look away. The small size and universal capacity of this car holder make it easy to take with you and use anywhere, from your everyday commute to your new rental car. You can even pop a credit card into the back side of the holder to make an impromptu desk stand -- neat.
The new, larger screen of the OnePlus 6 is perfect for doodling on, so why not pick up a stylus and start sketching? This stylus from Prestigio is a good choice, offering a pen on one end and a fibrous stylus tip on the other. This is great for drawing and sketching, although it's not as good as the Note 8's stylus for actually taking notes. Still, for £5 you can't go too far wrong.
