Google’s latest offering, the Pixel 6, is well worth buying for Google’s Tensor chip, not to mention that Galaxy Note-esque design, 6.4-inch screen, and all-day adaptive battery. If you’ve invested in Google’s latest, you’ll want to invest in a case to keep your new phone safe. We already covered some of the best Pixel 6 screen protectors, but finding the right case can be a challenge. Do you go for a clear case, a leather wallet case, or a silicone option? To help you decide, we’ve rounded up the best Google Pixel 6 cases available right now, with something here to suit all tastes and budgets.
Opted for the flagship Pixel 6 Pro instead? Check out our picks of the best Google Pixel 6 Pro cases.
Official Google Clear Case
- 30% recycled materials
- Official case by Google
- Comes in three colors
- Some users find it slippery
Google’s official Pixel 6 case is the one to get if you’re going all-in on the Google experience or if you’re looking for a planet-friendly choice, as it’s made with over 30% recycled materials. This case comes in three colors: Stormy Sky (pictured), Light Rain, or Cotton Candy. The translucent material lets your choice of Pixel 6 color shine through, while the dual-layer case absorbs shock and impact from drops or bumps. Raised edges prevent the screen from touching down and reduce the risk of damage should you drop your phone.
Poetic Revolution Case
- Military-grade drop tested
- Has built-in kickstand for hands-free viewing
- Available in various colors
- May be a bit bulky
Poetic’s Revolution case offers the rugged protection you need for an active lifestyle. This flexible TPU and solid polycarbonate case is military-grade drop tested, as well as being shockproof, scratch-proof, and impact-resistant. Raised lips and corners keep your screen safe from drops, there’s a built-in kickstand for hands-free viewing or video calls, and it even has a built-in screen protector for an extra level of protection for your screen. This case comes in black, blue, brown, pink, or maroon — though we’d opt for the classic black version.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case
- Well-known brand
- Crystal-clear case to show off your phone's back
- Offers extra shock absorption
- A bit pricey
- No design
Spigen’s Ultra Hybrid case is the perfect way to protect your Pixel 6 while also showing off its design. This crystal-clear case is made from polycarbonate and TPU, with Air Cushion Technology adding extra shock absorption to the corners. It’s super slim and has added grip on the sides, making it less likely you’ll drop your phone in the first place. Not a fan of the clear version? It’s also available in black.
Olixar Soft Silicone Case
- Cute colors
- Popular brand
- Raised bezels around the edges
- Won't protect against heavy impact
Available in a soft purple shade as well as mint green, red, or pink, Olixar’s soft silicone case is the perfect case for those who don’t want a hard-shell case. Providing superior protection against drops, bumps, and scrapes, its soft-touch finish feels great in your hand and adds grip, too. Raised bezels around the edges stop your phone screen from ever touching down, and the custom molded, slim-fit design doesn’t add bulk to your phone either.
Caseology Parallax Case
- Offers military-grade protection
- Compatible with screen protectors and wireless charging
- Comes with built-in grips
- The 3D back may feel rough to use
Serious about drop protection for your new phone? Caseology’s Parallax case offers military-grade protection and has been drop tested from up to 4 feet. Compatible with screen protectors and wireless charging, this case has a 3D “Hexa Cube” design for added protection and built-in grips on each side. Raised bezels around the screen and camera complete the package. Choose from three two-tone colors: Sage Green, Ash Gray, or red (which is actually black with red accents).
Crave Dual Guard Case
- Made of dual-layer TPU and PC
- Has a slim finish
- Available in classic colors
- Not a well-known brand
Crave’s Dual Guard case offers excellent shock-absorbent protection for your new Pixel phone. This compact case is made from dual-layer TPU and PC, with tactile buttons and a slim finish that makes it ideal for slipping into a pocket or bag. We love the Blush version, pictured, but it’s also available in more classic black or navy as well as Forest Green, Slate, Berry, Lilac, Aqua, or red.
LoveCases Gel Case
- Cute design
- Crystal-clear back to flaunt your phone
- Has a non-slip coating
- Not the best for protection
For those who want a clear case but don’t want to miss out on a fun design, LoveCases’ Gel Case is the perfect solution. This crystal clear case comes in a variety of different designs, but we like this moon and stars version. It’s not all about looks, though — this ultra-thin case is durable and features a non-slip coating, too. It has raised bezels around the screen and camera to protect against scratches, dirt, and dust as well.
Ghostek Exec 4 Genuine Leather Wallet Case
- Made of hybrid TPU and PC
- Offers 6 feet of military-grade drop protection
- Comes with a built-in card holder
- No color options
A wallet case is a must if you’re traveling light — and also pretty handy if you’re grabbing a coffee after a workout or run. This one from Ghostek is a hybrid TPU and PC case, with a flexible, form-fitting body and hard bumper offering up to 6 feet of military-grade drop protection. The rear of the case has a card holder covered in genuine leather with space for all your cards, cash, ID, or tickets. There are raised bezels around the screen too, so you can place your phone face down while you’re at work or working out without worrying about scratching the screen.
Ringke Fusion Case
- Has raised bezel for added protection
- Clear back to flaunt your phone
- Offers great protection against bumps and scratches
- Simple, clear case with no color or design options
Ringke’s Fusion case shows off your choice of Pixel 6 color while providing superior, crystal-clear protection. This dual-layer TPU and PC case is designed to protect against drops, bumps, and scrapes. A clear bumper runs around the outside for better grip and additional protection should you drop your phone, while a raised bezel around the screen ensures it never touches down.
Incipio Grip Case
- 14 feet of protection against drops
- Ultra-slim, lightweight case
- Multidirectional non-slip grips
- No color options
If 4 feet of drop protection doesn’t sound like enough, check out Incipio’s Grip Case, offering up to 14 feet of protection against drops thanks to Impact Struts and shock-proof technology. This ultra-slim, lightweight case comes in black or Midnight Navy and features a raised bezel around the screen and camera to reduce the risk of damage if you drop your phone. Multidirectional non-slip grips on the side prevent your phone from slipping through your fingers or sliding around when you place it down, and the case has antimicrobial tech built in to prevent 99.9% of surface bacteria and germs.
