The best Google Pixel 7 cases and covers

One of the most head-spinning aspects about buying a new smartphone is choosing the right case to keep it safe. The Google Pixel 7, fresh off the assembly line, is no exception. When choosing a case, be sure to take your lifestyle into consideration. Generally, you'll try to balance protection with a slim form factor that does not add bulk or weight to your phone. If you're into active sports, hiking, or cycling, you might consider a more rugged case that offers extra protection against drops and impact.

If you mainly move your smartphone out of the house for routine shopping, walks around the neighborhood, and commuting to the office, a lighter and less obtrusive case might be more appropriate. Don't forget about style. Perhaps you love the color and exterior look of your phone so much that you're loath to cover it but rather prefer a transparent case. Or conversely, you may seek a decorative or eye-popping design. All those options are available by themselves or in combination. We've chosen a few cases from our favorite brands to help you get started.

It's tested to sustain four times the number of drops as military standard MIL-STD-810G 516.6 and features a rugged, multilayer design with port covers. It works with both Qi charging and MagSafe wireless chargers (with no magnets in the case). The included holster serves as either a belt clip or kickstand.
