Editor's Notes

January 12, 2021:

Whether you have a new device or an older one, you probably want to keep it protected, which is exactly what these cases will do. Obviously, the level of protection varies between them, and you will often have to make a comprise between bulk and how well it safeguards your phone. For example, the SupCase Unicorn Beetle Pro 4 and OtterBox Defender 5 will make your phone nearly impervious to damage, yet they are considerably heftier than something like the Spigen Rugged Armor 5 or Caseology Parallax 5, which offer less protection but have slim builds that slip into a pocket easier. While there are many low-quality leather options on the market that don't cost too much, we feel it is worthwhile to pay a little more for the Pixel 5 Yogurt OL79 and Snakehive Vintage 4, so you get a case with a premium aesthetic and feel that continues to look better with age rather than worse.

Whether it is a brand new or old device, there are few things worse than dropping your phone and breaking it. If you are like most people these days, it can feel like your entire life is on your smartphone, from pictures to appointment reminders to social media feeds. Rather than wind up in that unfortunate situation, consider protecting that valuable item with one of these cases.

We did our best to include a nice variety of case styles to ensure there would be one to meet every need. Those who prefer a slim option that is easy to slip into a pocket and doesn't add much bulk or weight will want to check out the Pixel 3a Spigen Rugged Armor, Pixel 4 Google Case, and Pixel 3 Speck Presidio. Each of these offers a sufficient level of protection, without making it feel like you are carrying around a large brick.

For those who are tough on their devices, we recommend the Pixel 4 SupCase Unicorn Beetle Pro, which includes a screen protector, or the Pixel 3 OtterBox Defender, which has a dual-layer design; reinforced corners; and port covers to keep out dust and debris.

If you are tired of carrying so many things with you every time you leave the house, you'll probably enjoy a folio case that doubles as a wallet. Models like the Pixel 3 Snakehive Genuine Leather, Pixel 3a KeziHome Wallet, and Google 4 Feitenn Folio offer multiple credit card slots, a bill pocket, and a flip cover that keeps the screen protected when not in use. We also have the Pixel 3a Teelevo Wallet, which has just enough room for two cards.

It is worth pointing out that, while we have reviewed cases for specific Pixel models, many of these are also available for other generations, so if you like the features of the Pixel 3 Snakehive Genuine Leather for example, you can also find it in a 3a option. If you are disappointed with this selection because your landed here looking for a case for your XL model, not to worry, we have a dedicated list for Pixel XL cases.
