The latest Huawei flagship phone, the Mate 20 Pro has arrived at giffgaff. We’re celebrating the occasion with a round-up of our favourite cases and accessories for the new phone. Let’s get right into it!
Part 1: Top 5 Mate 20 Pro cases
1. Huawei Smart View Flip Case - £14
We’ll begin with Huawei’s own Smart View case. This case has a transparent window in its flip cover, protecting the screen while allowing information to pass through. This makes it easy to check the time, look at who’s calling or see your notifications without needing to open the cover each time. Apart from this functionality, you also get a slim official case that provides nominal protection against small drops, knocks and scratches.
2. Spigen Rugged Armor Carbon Fibre Case - £10
Spigen are one of my favourite case brands, thanks to their reasonable prices, solid designs and emphasis on protection (perhaps unsurprisingly, that’s why I’m using a Spigen case on my own S9+.) The Rugged Armor is one of their best known accessories, offering military-grade protection thanks to air cushions in each corner that help to absorb shocks. This case also has a modern design influenced by carbon fibre.
3. Ringke Fusion-X Tough Case - £9
This stunning case combines a hard-as-nails design with a transparent yet impact-resistant rear cover, allowing you to see the Mate 20 Pro in all of its glory (as long as you have the iridescent colourway at least). The dot matrix pattern on the back cover prevents the visual artefacts you sometimes see in clear cases and also prevents your phone from getting stuck inside. The case features military standard protection too, allowing it to live up to its tough image.
4. Love Mei Aluminium Case - £26
This case is one of the thickest and heaviest on the market - so why consider buying it? Well, it’s made from real aluminium, with its three-layer design giving your phone unprecedented rigidity and excellent protection. The bumper design keeps your Mate 20 Pro fully accessible too, with the added metal making for an attractive look. All in all, a solid case that more than justifies its price tag.
5. Ferilinso Leather Case with Stand - £11
We conclude with a leather-style case from Ferilinso. This brand isn’t as well-known as the others I’ve featured on this list, but the case itself cuts the mustard with a highly practical design. There’s a built-in stand, wallet storage for three cards plus cash and RFID blocking technology to prevent skimmers from making off with your card details. All in all, a solid case to round out the top five!
Part 2: Top 5 Mate 20 Pro accessories
6. LK Screen Protector 3-Pack - £10
This plastic screen protector is one of the cheapest ways to protect your Mate 20 Pro’s screen from scratches, shattering or other damage. The wet application method allows the screen protector to be reused or reinstalled if necessary, while the thermoplastic used ensures limited self-healing properties. A high-tech yet inexpensive option!
7. Gritin USB-C Cable 3-Pack - £7
Another three pack, this one provides a ton of USB-C charging cables for less than £10. With three varieties available - 1m, 1.5m and 2m - you can keep one each in different locations, so you don’t need to keep carrying around the single USB-C cable that came in the box with your Mate 20 Pro. Instead, just keep one in your car, one at the office and one at home, then you’ll always be prepared.
8. Choetech USB-C to HDMI adapter - £12
One of the best features of the Mate 20 Pro is its desktop mode. Simply connect a USB-C to HDMI adapter like this one and plug in your TV and monitor, and the Mate 20 Pro will switch to a desktop-style display mode. That means you can keep multiple apps open at once in resizable windows and access the full desktop versions of websites. If you want to turn your Mate 20 Pro into a real productivity machine, you can use a keyboard and mouse for that full desktop experience.
9. Anker 10W Wireless Charger - £18
This 10 watt wireless charger allows the Mate 20 Pro to recharge quickly without needing to touch a cable. The charger’s design is unobtrusive, with an anonymous black squircle and a few dim LEDs to let you know when the charger is operating or charging is complete.
10. Yosh Magnetic Vent Car Holder - £6
A good car holder doesn’t have to cost a lot. This cheap example from Yosh grips tightly to any vent in your car, while magnetically attaching to a sticker you can place on the back of your phone or its case. You get a supremely stable connection and the car holder is so small you can keep it in your pocket - perfect for using in rental cars for that road trip across the United States you’ve always dreamed of.
Thanks for reading through our Huawei Mate 20 Pro case and accessory recommendations. I hope you found it useful and we’ll see you on the next one.
