15 best Nexus 6P cases to protect and style your Google phone

The Nexus line is Google’s chance to showcase stock Android, and the Huawei-manufactured Nexus 6P comes freshly toasted from the fire with Android 6.0 Marshmallow onboard. It’s an expensive smartphone with solid specs and some nifty new features, but it definitely isn’t indestructible. If you want to keep that metal body pristine — and moreover, avoid cracking or scratching the 5.7-inch display — then you’ll get some protection. These are the best Nexus 6P cases we’ve seen so far.

Best Nexus 6P cases

Google Live Case ($35)

Google Live Photo Case

Google’s Live cases are specifically designed for Nexus 6P owners who prefer personalization and customization over protection. Using a personal photo or a place on the map, Google will create a case just for you, complete with a case style and finish of your choosing. Moreover, both cases come with a special companion wallpaper. If you opt for the Photos Live Case, you can enjoy a customizable picture gallery, while the Places Live Case will provide a stylized map of your current location. Best of all, the back of the case features a programmable shortcut button, allowing you to launch your favorite app quicker than ever.

Cover-Up Woodback Explorer Case ($25)

Cover-Up Woodback Explorer Case

Cover-up’s case is another that prioritizes design over protection, but still offers impact protection, rubber edges and corners, and a raised bezel that helps protect the front of your display when your phone is placed face down. The main reason to get a case from Cover-Up, however, is the laser-cut wood skin. The exterior of the case is sanded down to make it as smooth as possible, and a unique finish is then added to give it a natural shine. If you want to show your love for Mother Nature, this is your case. Just keep in mind that the wood pattern on your particular case may differ from the product images.

Suensan Leather Flip Elegance Case ($15)

Suensan Flip Case

If you don’t want anything too expensive or complex, but still want to invest in a case that has a distinct leather look, Suensan’s flip case will get the job done. The leather texture makes for a lightweight and thin case, but one that is also incredibly soft to the touch. Overall protection is fairly basic and relies on a soft interior lining, but that, combined with the flip-cover design, means your Nexus 6P will be at its safest when the case is completely closed. It’s not rugged, but it should provide some protection if your device is dropped. Sadly, closing the case will not put your phone to sleep, meaning you’ll have to do it manually.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Rugged Case ($18+)

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Case

Supcase’s Unicorn Beetle case is described as “rugged,” and judging by the look and all the protection it offers, that description is apt. To start, the case is made using TPU materials for shock absorption, making your Nexus 6P resistant to blunt impacts. The case also features a built-in screen protector that won’t interfere with your phone’s touchscreen capabilities, and its inclusion means you won’t need to track one down yourself. Aside from keeping your device safe, the Unicorn Beetle case also comes equipped with a removable, 360-degree clip, which allows you to place it on your belt for quick access. The Beetle Series focuses on protection above all else, and is perfect for those constantly on the move, or people who work in areas that aren’t exactly phone-friendly.

Verus High Pro Shield Slim Fit Case ($19+)

Verus High Pro Shield Case

The High Pro Shield is meant to give your Nexus 6P as much protection as possible, but without the bulk of other protection-focused cases. This slim case is comprised of a hard outer bumper that surrounds a softer cover, one that features an internal pattern that’s designed to provide additional shock absorption. The design of the case will protect your phone’s display when placed face down, too, thanks to a raised bezel that encompasses the screen. Three holes placed in the corners will also produce a cushion-like effect when dropped, ensuring that any impact damage is lessened or completely negated. Lastly, Verus offers a one-year warranty, meaning you can always return the case if it doesn’t perform as expected.
