The best Huawei Mate 20 Pro cases
1. Urban Armour Gear Monarch: Best heavy-duty Mate 20 Pro case
Price: £40 | Buy now from MobileFun
Urban Armour Gear (UAG) is a regular feature on our best case roundups for one reason: its cases are phenomenally reliable. Admittedly, the Monarch is comfortably the priciest product on our list, but, as the name suggests, it really is the king of protective cases. It features five layers of protection alongside genuine leather and is 2x the military drop-proof standard. The case’s bold design means you shouldn’t have too much trouble standing out from the crowd, either.
UAG is so confident in the Monarch that it comes with a ten-year limited warranty, rather than the usual one year that comes with the rest of its products.
Key specs – Materials: PC, genuine leather, rubber; Drop-proofing: 2x military standard; Warranty: 10-year limited
2. Eiger North: Best protective slim case for Mate 20 Pro
Price: £15 | Buy now from Eiger
Staying true to its name, Eiger specialises in cases built for the intrepid among us. The North case for Mate 20 Pro features two layers of TPU and PC protection, behind a rugged, non-slip finish. It’s slim but has been designed specifically to withstand drops of up to six feet, which is above the height of most humans.
The Eiger North probably wouldn’t survive falling over a cliff-edge in the Alps, but it would give it a better shot than almost all of its rivals.
Key specs – Materials: TPU, PC; Drop-proofing: 1.8m (6ft); Warranty: Not stated
3. Huawei Smart View Flip Case: Most functional case for Mate 20 Pro
Price: £35 | Buy now from MobileFun
It would simply be rude to compile this list without including a case made by the manufacturer itself. If anyone knows how to protect a Mate 20 Pro, it’s going to be Huawei.
The Smart View flip case works in tandem with your Mate 20 Pro’s software to show you the time and notifications, even when your screen is covered. Since it’s an official Huawei product, you can rest assured that this a high-quality case made from high-quality materials, too.
Key specs – Materials: Plastic; Drop-proofing: Not stated; Warranty: 30-day return policy
