5 of the best OnePlus 3 cases

The best bits of armour to help protect your shiny new handset

The OnePlus 3 is a superb handset. It's so good in fact, we're convinced that its ₹28,000 price tag is a mistake.

It offers the best bang-for-buck smartphone experience in history and you'd be mad not to consider snapping one up for yourself.

If you do, then you'll want to make sure it goes through life with as little trauma as possible. That's where this lot come in:

TUDIA Ultra Slim case (₹1,799)

This no-nonsense case won't draw admiring glances from any fashionistas. It doesn't have giant logos plastered all over it. All in all, it's rather unassuming, and that's just fine by us, because it's not terribly bulky but still offers decent protection from drops.

Best for: simple protection

Official OnePlus 3 case (₹1,499)

OnePlus' official cases stand out a lot more, and are a great way to inject a little personality into your handset. From bamboo to the company's traditional black grippy sandstone finish (and even carbon fibre), there should be something here for everyone. Unless you're after a fluffy pink affair, that is.

Best for: standing out from the crowd

Daily Objects case (From ₹699)

Understated does not apply to these cases. Available in a rainbow of colours and styles with various themes ranging from abstract, gothic and floral all the way to Bollywood, your OnePlus 3 will feel right at home from anything to a business meeting to a rave. If you're willing to pay out a little extra, Daily Objects also allows you to customise your case - you start with a blank canvas, select your colour, add images and text, and even run the whole thing through some filters. 

Best for: DIY-ers

Orzly FlexiCase (₹1,499)

If you want your case to be as invisible as possible, then this clear gel case is the way to go. It'll offer more grip while still showing off the OnePlus 3's lovely metal rear, while its overlapping corners offer a little bit of extra protection from particularly nasty drops.

Best for: minimalists

OtterBox Case (₹1,999)

If you spend most of your time mountain biking or fighting crime, then this is the case for you. It's big, it's beefy, and it'll have a hard time slipping into skinny jeans, but it offers the best protection available, letting your beloved handset survive all sorts of nasty spills and tumbles.

Best for: Batman
