Best P30 and P30 Pro Cases
Huawei’s P30 and P30 Pro are the last in the brand’s P series flagship range to feature Google Play, making them a popular option a year after the initial launch –
see the best P30 and P30 Pro deals. So popular, in fact, that Huawei is releasing a new version of the P30 Pro with increased RAM and EMUI 10.1 to improve the Google-powered experience on offer.
The phones feature a slew of fantastic features – but the cameras are what take reign. The P30 features triple rear cameras while the larger P30 Pro features four cameras. You can read about the excellent features both phones offer in our
comparison review. Also see our individual reviews of the
P30 and the
Whichever model you choose, you will want to keep your P30 or P30 Pro protected, which is why we’ve rounded up the best cases out there so far.
We have tried many of these cases out on various other phones in the past and trust these brands for producing reliable and hardy cases.
US shoppers may find that case availability may be limited at times, and this is due to the phone not being available in the US (amidst political tensions). We have tried to source US options wherever possible.
We will be testing more cases for the Huawei P30 and P30 Plus as more become available, so watch this space!
The best place to get a case that promises a perfect fit is from Huawei itself, which is offering a few different cases for its latest smartphones. The silicone case is available in various colours like blue, pink, light blue, black, yellow and red (pictured).
The silicone case allows access to all ports and buttons as you would expect. Of course, we don’t expect rugged protection, but it’s a great option to prevent day to day wear from scratches and bumps.
It’s available for both the P30 (
US$15.49) and P30 Pro (
US$15.49) from Mobile Fun.
Huawei’s Smart View Flip Case is similar to
Samsung’s S View case that provides access to useful information like the time, alarms, and weather, without having to peel back the front cover, which doubly helps to keep your screen protected too.
On top of this convenience, the case also protects the P30 from scratches and impact. It’s available for both the P30 (
US$37.52) and P30 Pro (
Olixar’s prolific approach to case making in recent years has helped the brand gain notoriety,but it’s the unique design of the MeshTex that stands out.
The patterned back complements the sleek lines of the device while aiding grip and aiding heat dissipation. Smartphones can get very hot with all the processes going on, so it’s nice to see this was thought of here.
Don’t worry, the regular protection you’d expect from an Olixar case is here – the composite material has been custom-built for durability.
If you’d like, you have a choice of additional screen protectors for all-around protection.
It’s available in blue or black, and you can buy it now for
if you want to add a splash of luxury to the already stunning P30, Noreve’s leather cover could be for you.
Available in four designs, including black (pictured), the beauty of this case is in its simplicity, having been made to measure for the device. Cutouts for ports and cameras are still all easily accessible.
Noreve also offer an optional metal or spring belt clip, for easy access to your phone at all times.

This case has been a favourite of ours for a while now, as it offers a great blend of form and function.
Although we’d like the branding to be slightly more discrete, this provides excellent protection for a relatively affordable price.
There is the option to add a screen protector, but you might be fine without considering the raised edges of the case and Corning Gorilla Glass on the phone.
You can buy it now for
£23.99. We couldn’t find anywhere selling it in the US, so you might need to import.
Snakehive is a favourite of ours. The UK-based brand crafts high quality cases made of premium European Nubuck leather and at an affordable price. Its cases are under £30 – not bad for a hand-crafted good. Over time, the leather forms a patina, giving it an additional layer of sophistication.
The case allows easy access to all ports and buttons. Plus, as a wallet case, you can stow away up to three card and notes too.
It’s available for the
P30 Pro for £26.95 directly from
Snakehive (in a variety of shades) and on
Amazon as well. It’s currently unavailable in the US.
Spigen makes tough cases and the Slim Armor is a trusty style we’ve seen before for other phones. Made with a combination of TPU (silicone-type material) and polycarbonate (hard shell plastic), it is shock resistant and offers military-grade protection for your Huawei P30
Spigen also offers what it calls ‘Air Cushion Technology’ to protect the corners of the phone. It has a useful stand at the rear of the case too, so you can enjoy hands-free viewing.
It’s available for the P30 only in
both the UK and
US (via Spigen).
UAG Plasma Case for Huawei P30 Pro
With its ‘feather-light composite construction’ the Plasma series case from UAG is now available for the P30 Pro. We’ve seen similar options from UAG for iPhones, so it’s good that this rugged case with its mil-spec drop protection will now keep your P30 Pro safe.
It has extra material at the corners and slightly raised edges to protect the screen when placed face down. But not so high that you can’t use the gesture navigation in Android 9, a problem we’ve had with a few cases.
The rear is opaque and sort of lets your P30 Pro’s colour show through but it’s not the case to choose if you really want to see the gorgeous Breathing Crystal gradient in its full glory.
The Plasma case is also
available for the P30.
Ringke is another great option if you’re after a rugged case for your Huawei P30 or P30 Pro. It’s shock absorbent with reinforced inner and outer corners. It is also tested to meet military drop protection standards.
The clear back lets you show off the bright, original colour of the Huawei P30 phone. Plus the ‘Anti-Cling Dot Matrix Technology’ – essentially a grid of tiny dots – helps prevent any watermarking or rainbow effects on the transparent back of the case, so it can stay clean and clear.
The Fusion-X case comes with dust caps to keep ports free of debris. It’s available for both the
P30 Pro on Amazon (£7.99/$12.99, for either model).
Speck is another reliable name when it comes to phone cases. The Presidio Stay Clear case is for those who want the natural beauty of the Huawei P30 or P30 Pro to shine through.
It’s coated to stay resistant to UV rays and oils. Plus, its designed to disperse shock, even when dropped from a height of 8 feet.
It’s available in the UK only for both the
P30 and the
P30 Pro, for £19.95.
Tozo Ultra Thin Hybrid
Smartphones these days are works of art, with manufacturers doing all they can to make them as thin as possible – only for them to be hidden by a chunky case.
That’s not the story with Tozo’s Ultra Thin Hybrid case for the P30. As the name suggests, the Tozo case is much thinner than most others in our roundup, allowing you to achieve something close to a ‘bare smartphone’ experience without compromising on protection.
There’s a slightly raised lip at the front, stopping the display from coming into contact with surfaces when laid face-down, and there’s a 0.6mm raised lip that surrounds the rear-camera setup for the same reason.
The only disappointment is that it isn’t currently available for the P30 Pro. But if you’ve got a standard P30, you can pick it up on Amazon right now for only
