The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is out now - here's our roundup of the best cases you can buy

So, you've purchased the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. You've resisted the temptations of big-name smartphones like Samsung’s Galaxy Note series and Apple’s iPhone 11 in favour of the connoisseur's choice (that's cheaper too). Consider us impressed.

Stacked with clever features, we reckon the Chinese firm’s beefy flagship is a serious contender for the best smartphone ever released. Who in their right mind would want that to go to waste? Getting a case to protect your new £500 toy is nothing short of imperative.

Just to be clear, the Mate 20 Pro comes with a transparent case included in the price. But variety is the spice of life, isn’t it?

Here’s a roundup of the very best Mate 20 Pro cases out there right now.

The best Huawei Mate 20 Pro cases

1. Caseflex for Mate 20 Pro: Best value Mate 20 Pro case

Price: £2 | Buy now from eBay

Value is the first thing most of us look for when choosing a phone case, and this effort from Caseflex provides just that.

It doesn’t look cheap, though. The carbon fibre effect provides an element of style, as well as enhancing the grip of the case. Formed from shockproof thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU to you and me), it offers protection from all manner of drops and bumps, while a raised bezel saves your screen from scratches.

All this for just £2. What’s not to like?

Key specs - Materials: TPU gel; Drop-proofing: Not supplied; Warranty: 90-days

Buy now from eBay


2. 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

3. 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

Buy now from Eiger


4. 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
