Your OnePlus 2 might look good now, but the second you smash it up you'll remember just what you went through in order to buy the thing (if you're still trying to get hold of one, read our article on how to buy the OnePlus 2 for some tips). In this article we round up some of the best cases for OnePlus 2, with a selection of cases including OnePlus 2 silicon and gel cases, OnePlus 2 hard and rugged cases, and OnePlus 2 wallet cases and flip covers.

Best OnePlus 2 cases: Ludde & Urbain OnePlus 2  Slimline Case - Bamboo

MobileFun stocks this stylish Bamboo-effect OnePlus 2 case from Ludde & Urbain for £19.99. The 3D printed case is actually soft-touch plastic, and also available in Rosewood, SandStone and Onyx. (Onyx looks particularly cool.)

The wood-effect finish helps your OP2 stand out, while offering durable protection and access to all the key ports and connections. This slimline case adds very little bulk or weight to the OnePlus 2, and feels fantastic in the hand.

Rigid, yet with some flex, it's easy to snap on the rear of the OnePlus 2 and remove whenever you choose.

A screen protector is also provided in the box.

Best OnePlus 2 cases: Olixar Leather-Style OnePlus 2 Wallet Stand Case

MobileFun is stocking this sophisticated brown leather-look flip cover for the OnePlus 2 for £14.99.

The Olixar Wallet protects the OnePlus 2 from all angles, with a built-in soft-touch plastic casing to hold the phone, and a faux-leather cover that also accommodates two credit cards. There's no clasp holding down the cover, but it's sufficiently rigid to stay in place by itself, yet flexible enough to fold back and form a stand to prop up the OnePlus 2.

There are cutouts for all the buttons and connections, and slots at the front for the speaker and on the rear for the camera. Using a flip case does make it impossible to access the Alert Slider in your pocket, but if this doesn't bother you the Olixar Wallet is a great option for protecting your OnePlus 2.

Best OnePlus 2 cases: Orzly Multi-Function Wallet Case for OnePlus 2

If flip covers are your thing, a slightly cheaper option is the leather-effect Orzly Multi-Function Wallet Case for OnePlus 2, sold via Amazon for £8.99. The Orzly Wallet is available in black, blue, grey and red, and in common with the Olixar can accommodate two credit cards, plus there's a space for hiding away banknotes.

Less sophisticated in appearance but just as functional, the Orzly can also fold back to form a stand, and it has a clasp to hold the cover in place. As we mentioned with the Olixar, flip cases do make it impossible to make use of the Alert Slider when the OnePlus 2 is in your pocket, but all the other ports and connections are easily accessible with cutouts present and correct.

Best OnePlus 2 cases: Official OnePlus 2 Silicon Case

OnePlus stocks its own silicon cases for the OnePlus 2, available for £12.99 from its online store. Right now white and red options are available, with blue and black coming soon. A OnePlus logo sits just below the camera cutout, so don't worry - onlookers will still know it's a OnePlus 2 you're carrying.

The OnePlus Silicon Case has a hybrid design that mixes the tough protection provided by a hard polycarbonate shell with the soft, smooth and rubbery grip of a gel case. It's rugged, and it feels good in the hands.

The silicon case covers the rear and sides of the OnePlus 2, and adds just 24g to the phone's overall weight. While the screen is still vulnerable to drops and scratches, the OnePlus 2 is otherwise protected from every angle.

Best OnePlus 2 cases: Olixar FlexiShield OnePlus 2 Case

The official OnePlus 2 Silicon Case isn't your only option if you want a rear cover rather than 360-degree protection for your OnePlus 2. We really like this Olixar FlexiShield OnePlus 2 case in Smoke Black from MobileFun, which is less than half the price of the official silicon case at £5.99.

The Olixar FlexiShield is a proper gel case, and therefore flexible and easy to put on and take off the phone. The rear has a matt finish to match the grippy and sandpaper-like rear cover of the OnePlus 2, which is also visible through the case. This not only looks good, but prevents the phone easily slipping out of your hand.

A slightly raised lip that sits above the screen helps to protect the OnePlus 2's display when placed face down on a flat surface, while the tough gel material stops the rest of the phone coming into contact with anything that could do it damage.

Best OnePlus 2 cases: OtterBox Case for OnePlus 2

Tougher still is the rugged OtterBox case for OnePlus 2, which OnePlus sells through its own site for £18.95. The OtterBox case is available in Glacier (grey and white), Black, Snow Fire (red and white) and Night Shadow (black and blue).

A dual-layer shell provides ultimate protection for your OnePlus 2 against bumps, drops and shock, with a hard outer layer and a soft silicone interior. There are grips on the left- and right sides of the phone to keep it secure in the hand, plus five vents in the rear that look a little like an otter has slashed the case in fury.

The OtterBox Case for OnePlus 2 adds some weight and bulk to your phone, but the design is a still-pocketable 159.7x81x15.5mm, adding just under 50g to your phone.

Best OnePlus 2 cases: Ringke Fusion Case for OnePlus 2

You bought the OnePlus 2 partly because you liked its design, right? So you may be tempted not to put your OnePlus 2 in a protective case, but you'll regret that decision the second you damage it.

Ringke's Fusion Case is a transparent hard shell for OnePlus 2 that adds protection without detracting from its design. The Fusion Case costs £7.99 from Amazon, and it comes with a free screen protector, too.

Alternatively, by buying a clear case such as this you are free to create your own design with a personalised OnePlus 2 case.

Ringke says its Fusion Case for OnePlus 2 features anti-scratch technology and an anti-static element that repels dust. A cap also sits in the headphone jack to keep it free from dirt and grime.
