The best Google Pixel cases and covers

The 20 best Google Pixel cases to protect your phone

The Google Pixel phone may no longer be the fit young upstart now the Pixel 2 is out and the Pixel 3 is on its way, but it still features an interesting, aluminum design with a 5-inch display and a glass section on the back. With snappy performance, a great camera, and Google Assistant onboard, there are plenty of reasons to buy one. But these impressive specs also carry a premium price tag, which makes opting for a proper case all the more important. Those curved edges could chip or scuff if you drop your new Pixel, and even toughened glass can scratch and crack easily. Fortunately for you, we’ve rounded up the best Google Pixel cases, many of which are as stylish as they are durable.
