The Pixel Fold is one of Google’s most premium — and expensive — smartphones to date, starting at $1,799. To put that into context, that’s about as much as a Les Paul or a decent used car. That said, the phone is undeniably overflowing with high-end features, and it will receive at least five years of software updates from Google. During those five years, your device will become home to a ton of important accumulated data. To keep all of that safe, you will want to protect your investment with a proper case. Let’s go over the best Google Pixel Fold cases you can buy to make your Pixel Fold stand the test of time.

The best Google Pixel Fold cases

Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of Google Pixel Fold cases as new options continue to become available.

Official Google Pixel Fold case

Google’s official Pixel Fold case is crafted using polycarbonate, silicone, and microfiber. It will guard your expensive new Pixel Fold against minor drops and scratches, all the while bolstering the device’s aesthetics with a minimal look. Color-wise, it’s available in Bay, Porcelain, and Hazel. With it being made by Google, you can rest assured that the case will fit snugly and the quality will be top-notch.

Spigen Thin Fit

Spigen makes some of the world’s best smartphone cases, and the Thin Fit for the Google Pixel Fold is an absolute gem of a find. Comprised of scratch-resistant polycarbonate and soft TPU, the case adds an unbelievable amount of in-hand comfort to the Pixel Fold. It’s quite thin, but it will help bolster your phone’s defenses against minor drops and bumps.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

Spigen’s classic clear case, the Ultra Hybrid, is now available for the Pixel Fold silhouette. If you chose wisely with your Google Pixel Fold colorway, you will undoubtedly want to retain most of its original aesthetic. The Ultra Hybrid case from Spigen allows you to do just that, providing extra protection along the way.

Spigen Slim Armor Pro

Spigen’s Slim Armor Pro for the Pixel Fold is a bit more of a rugged option. If you’re prone to dropping your phone, you may want to give this one a longer look. It features dual-layer protection, impact foam technology for an extra layer of shock resistance, Air Cushion Technology, and even hinge protection. This case also doesn’t add an unmanageable amount of bulk either, so your phone will still fit in your pocket.

Caseology Parallax

Caseology‘s Parallax line is available for most mainstream smartphones — and for good reason. It offers tremendous protection thanks to its TPU and polycarbonate build, hinge coverage, and an attractive modern aesthetic with that recognizable geometric design on the back. The textured back also offers enhanced grip, so your Pixel Fold doesn’t slip from your hand in the first place.

OtterBox Thin Flex Series

OtterBox’s Thin Flex series is a popular option for lots of phones, especially considering the rugged nature of most of their cases. This one is still tested to meet and surpass military standard drop specifications, but it’s also more practical than a bulky case. This hard case with soft grip edges also features antimicrobial properties.

Poetic Guardian

Poetic has joined the Pixel Fold party with their famous Guardian series. This is a bulkier case that adds the utmost protection to your device. It encases the entire Pixel Fold from front to back, and has a built-in kickstand in the hinge protection area. This is our top recommendation if you feel like you’re prone to dropping your Pixel Fold a lot and want to protect the front screen as much as possible.

Poetic Spartan

Next up is yet another iconic rugged design from Poetic. The Spartan, like the Guardian, encases the entire Pixel Fold from front to back. The kickstand is located on the read panel instead of the hinge section, though, and the design is slightly different. That said, both cases accomplish the same thing: maximal protection for the Pixel Fold in the event of a drop.
