The Poetic Affinity is one of the most budget-friendly rugged cases available for the Pixel 4. It’s MIL-STD 810G-516.6 tested for shocks, drops, and scratches. The frosted clear back panel shows off the color of your device while the textured TPU bumper adds a degree of grip so you won’t drop your phone and it won’t slide away. However, it’s a single layer case and doesn’t provide dust protection like a few other Poetic models.


6. Tudia Merge
