The Pixel 2 and 2 XL are exceptional Android smartphones from Google, improving on the original devices in almost every aspect. Even so, they aren’t indestructible and you’re rightly on the lookout for a decent case.
You can go direct to Google, but there are also alternatives. Here are our favourites.
Google Pixel 2 Fabric Case
This lovely official case from Google is a textured fabric shell for your new Pixel 2. Snap in the phone and gain a snug fit that’ll keep it free of dents while making the back grippier to hold.
A couple of the cases can give your phone a bright punchy look or you can opt for a more muted design. You still have access to all ports, the camera and the fingerprint scanner.
Google Pixel 2 Live Case
This is a great idea from Google. You can customise your own case for your Pixel 2 or 2 XL using a photo of your own. Alternatively, you can use approved artworks Google has picked out or even customise a case based on a Google Map location.
You can pick either a thicker dual layer case for £40 or a slimmer one for £30. Have a play around and see what cool creation you can come up with.
Tech21 Evo Check for Google Pixel 2
Tech21 cases are known for their excellent quality rubberised finish and are even stocked in Apple Stores for the iPhone alongside the official stuff.
This time it’s for the Pixel 2 and there are no compromises. The cases fit snug and secure, allowing access to all ports and buttons and even a ridged design so you can place the phone face down and not scratch the screen. Recommended.
Olixar ExoShield Tough Snap-on Google Pixel 2 Case
An affordable moulded plastic case for the Pixel 2 is a sure-fire winner. For a tenner, you get a see-through case that shows off your new phone and protects it from impact drops with the reinforced corners.
It’s simple, but it might be all you need. Available here for the Pixel 2 XL.
Olixar Ultra-Thin Google Pixel 2 Gel Case
You could go even cheaper with this case from Olixar which is rubberized rather than hard plastic, meaning it’s incredibly grippy so you won’t drop your phone so easily.
It isn’t the most hardy of cases though as the gel casing isn’t too thick, but it’ll keep it free from scratches and short fall dents.
