The OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro have been available for a few months now, which means attention will inevitably shift towards the 8 series.
However, we shouldn’t look beyond the late 2019 handsets just yet, which offer top-of-the-line specs and performance for a relatively affordable price. As such, the 7T sits top of our best phone chart as of early 2020.
OnePlus’ slick and clean Oxygen OS skin has always been popular, and that may be even more true for the 7T, as it was the first phone to ship with Android 10 out of the box.
If you want an in-depth look at both devices, check out our OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro reviews.
Both regular phones were officially released in the UK on 17 October. A McLaren edition of the 7T Pro, complete with a huge 12GB RAM, was released on 5 November.

There are plenty of great cases to choose from, so check out our round-up of the best on the market.
1. OnePlus 7T Protective Case
OnePlus has built a reputation in recent years for its solid official case lineup, and the 7T series is no different.
As it is specifically designed with the phone in mind, the protective case offers enhanced shock and corrosion resistance.
While it doesn’t directly cover the screen, the case has subtle raised edges to protect it from falls. They are available for both the 7T and 7T Pro (pictured) in a Karbon or Sandstone finish.
The 7T cases start at £22.95/US$24.95, while you’ll have to step up to £27.95 for the 7T Pro, which is currently not available on the US site.
2. Spigen Tough Armor OnePlus 7T Case
An icon of the case market, Spigen’s Tough Armor case has provided outstanding support for many different phones over the years.
The case adds relatively little bulk, while still offering shock absorbency and durability in a single package. Add to that a built-in kickstand and this case offers everything you’re looking for in a rugged case.
You can buy it now for £14.99/US$16.99.
3. Noreve OnePlus 7T Leather Cover
If you like the premium leather look, but don’t want the extra bulk of a folio cases, Noreve’s offering could be for you.
Available in 12 stunning colours, this full leather case offers plenty of customisation to ensure you get the right accessory for you.
These include the addition of a rear stand, card slots and even a necklace. The case itself is enhanced with thermoplastic framing for shock absorption, while raised edges should mean the screen is still protected.
You can buy it now, starting at £47.02/US$51.01.
4. Mofi Fabric Case for OnePlus 7T
A fabric case always adds a touch of style to your phone, and Mofi’s offering does just that.
Available in three distinct colour options, this case fully protects the back of the phone, ensuring it remains in pristine condition. It also avoids the common issue of fingerprint marks, as can be an issue if you go case-free.
The raised bumper should also mean the front of the device is safe, something that can’t always be said about similar form factors.
You can buy it now for £14.99/US$8.69, while it’s also available for the 7T Pro.
5. Olixar FlexiShield OnePlus 7T Gel Case
Olixar’s gel case wraps all the way around your OnePlus 7T, providing solid protection at an affordable price. Crucially, of course, it maintains cut-outs for charging and camera modules.
Although the front of the device is exposed, Olixar have added a raised bezel to prevent it from attracting scratches and dirt.
As with its predecessors, the glass back of the OnePlus 7T is notoriously slippery to hold, but the FlexiShield provides much-needed grip without adding bulk to the device.
You can buy it now for £4.99/US$6.48, while it’s also available for the 7T Pro for the exact same price – £4.99/US$6.48.
6. Nodus Access Case III for OnePlus 7T/7T Pro
The third-generation access case refines what was already a very successful design. Available for both 7T models, this provides almost complete protection for your phone.
Made from high-quality Italian leather, the folio-style case provides a secure pouch for cards and notes. Your phone securely attaches using what Nodus call ‘Micro Suction Technology’, and the tough exterior is complemented by a soft microfibre lining.
Cases for both models are currently priced at £39.99/US$52. The Nodus site is still saying a November dispatch date, so we have contacted the company in the hope of receiving an update on when you might be able to get your hands on them.
7. Olixar Carbon Fibre for OnePlus 7T Pro
If your priority is style, then Olixar’s Carbon Fibre case could be the one for you.
Carbon Fibre is renowned for being lightweight, and this case also adds very little bulk to your device. It wraps all around the phone, protecting the side buttons but not compromising on their tactility.
It has been designed with safety in mind, with powerful shock-absorbing strength protecting your device from scratches and falls.
The matte finish gives a premium look, while the textured back aids grip on what is usually a relatively slippery device.
You can buy it now for £12.99/$14.49.
8. Olixar Leather-Style OnePlus 7T Wallet Stand Case
If gel cases aren’t your thing, Olixar also produce a wallet-style case.
This folio design has become very popular in recent years, combining your wallet and phone into one compact package. However, Olixar has gone one step further, as the horizontal fold of the case means it doubles as a stand for hands-free viewing.
The use of faux leather has meant the price can be kept down, but the company also produce genuine leather options if you’d prefer.
You can buy it at Mobile Fun for £9.99/US$12.98.
9. SLEO Case for OnePlus 7T Pro
Continuing the leather theme, SLEO’s OnePlus 7T Pro case provides a relatively inexpensive route into premium wallet-style cases.
This case features the usual card slots and notes pouch opposite, and is available in three colours – Brown, Dark Brown and Black.
Other features include a built in adjustable viewing stand for media consumption and magnetic open/close mechanism. Crucially, it retains space for the pop-up camera module.
You can buy this case on Amazon for just £3.99, but it’s currently unavailable in the US
10. Olixar NovaShield OnePlus 7T Bumper Case
Olixar were one of the first major case manufacturers to announce concrete plans for the OnePlus 7T, so how about one of their bumper cases?
This case frames the device, keeping the back transparent while still the impact of any potential drops. This design provides cutouts and easy press buttons, ensuring the full functionality of the device is maintained.
Many people laud the beauty of modern smartphones, so if you’d rather not cover up the original design then this case may be for you.
It is available for £12.99/US$16.88.
