Carrier-specific device redesigns are something we havenâ€™t come across for a long time. Unfortunately, that seems to have happened with the Verizon version of the OnePlus 8, aka the OnePlus 8 5G UW. Itâ€™s aÂ difference that is barely noticeable â€” the volume rocker has moved slightly. However, that is enough to create a problem when trying to use form-fitting and precise cases and covers. Basically, youâ€™ll need cases specifically made for the OnePlus 8 5G UW. Here are your options!
Just to re-iterate, there are quite a few options if youâ€™re looking for cases for the OnePlus 8 Pro and the â€œstandardâ€� OnePlus 8 model that youâ€™ll get unlocked or from other networks. This list is specifically and only for the OnePlus 8 5G UW from Verizon.
The best Verizon OnePlus 8 5G UW cases:
Speck Presidio Pro
The Speck Presidio Pro combines an impact-resistant polycarbonate shell and a shock-absorbing interior to keep the phone safe from bumps and drops. A soft-touch finish on the outside doesnâ€™t get scratched easily and adds to the grip. Raised bezels around the screen, covered buttons, reinforced corners, and Microban antimicrobial technology (that reduces bacteria by 99%) add to the protective capabilities of the case.
OnePlus Karbon bumper
While you wonâ€™t be able to use OnePlusâ€™ other official cases with this version of the phone, Verizon users arenâ€™t left out completely. You can pick up this Karbon bumper case that is compatible with the 8 5G UW. The bumper case is quite protective and is made with an impact-resistant kevlar. It gives complete all-round coverage with raised bezels, covered buttons, and precise cutouts for the alert slider, charging port, and rear camera.
Verizon Clarity case
The Clarity case is made from sustainable, plant-based materials and offers all the protection of a typical bumper case. You get reinforced corners and covered buttons, along with precise cutouts for everything else. Also included with the case is a blue light filter screen protector that helps keep the display free from damage as well.
If youâ€™re looking for one of the best clear cases for the OnePlus 8 5G UW that also provides rugged protection, the Otterbox Symmetry is the way to go. It offers the level of safety that we expect from Otterbox cases while allowing you to show off the design of the phone from all angles. Itâ€™s relatively sleek for an Otterbox case, but is as protective as the companyâ€™s other offerings.
