Best Google Pixel 3 cases:
Spigen Thin Fit
If you just need a simple case to help protect your Pixel 3 from drops and bumps, the Spigen Thin Fit is a great choice. It’s a no-frills case that’s surprisingly light and resistant. It’s also very affordable, although it only comes in one color: black.

PHNX thin case
The Pixel 3 is a nicely compact little phone, but most cases add significant bulk and weight. The PHNX thin case avoids this with a super thin .35mm finish. It also doesn’t have any external branding, keeping things nice and clean. It comes in matte black, really blue, red, frosted white, and frosted black. However, don’t expect too much drop protection.

There are many rugged Pixel 3 cases available, but one of the best is the Otterbox Symmetry. It’s lighter than the Defender, but it still offers heavy-duty protection. A TPU bumper guards against drops, while a hard polycarbonate shell protects against scrapes and scratches. The case is actually made from a single piece of material, so it’s effortless to apply and remove, and you can choose from five different colors.

Under Armour Protect Verge
The Incipio Under Armour Protect Verge case has a clear back so you can still see the color of your new phone, along with textured sides for easy holding. A think bumper with reinforced corners ensures that the Pixel 3 can survive a drop. It comes with the distinctive Under Armour logo on top.
Spigen Rugged Armor
Spigen is one of our favorite phone case makers, and they have a few models for the Google Pixel 3. We linked the Thin Fit above, but a more robust option is this rugged armor case, which offers a high degree of protection and a fairly slim design. The one-piece case still has Spigen’s Air Cushion Technology to keep the Pixel 3 safe from any falls from a few feet high, while the textures on the back provide a better grip.
Supcase Unicorn Beetle Style
Another name that ranks up there with Otterbox in terms of durability is Supcase — specifically the Unicorn Beetle line. This option is the UB Style, which swaps the standard matte black finish for a clear polycarbonate back panel. The idea is that you can show off the unique style of your Pixel 3 while maintaining drop and scratch protection with the TPU bumper. You can pick up the UB Style in either blue or black.

The Ringke Fusion-X is one of the best Pixel 3 cases you can buy. The dual-layer design on the sides of the case is certified MIL-STD 810G – 516.6 for falls and drops. The case is transparent and lets you show off the color and design of the phone. A raised lip keeps the display and the rear camera safe as well.
