The best Google Pixel Tablet cases you can buy
The Pixel Tablet from Google offers an interesting take on a tablet, with a dock that turns it into a kind of Next Hub. It will also receive five years of guaranteed software support from Google. Whether you take it on the go or leave it at home, a good case will help it go the distance. An even better case will ensure it’s still compatible with the included dock. With that in mind, let’s review the best case Pixel Tablet cases you can currently buy.
The best Google Pixel Tablet cases
Official Google Pixel Tablet case
Google’s own Pixel Tablet Case features a craft hinge design for the stainless steel ring-shaped kickstand, allowing it to prop up at any angle. Furthermore, the charging speaker dock that comes with the Pixel Tablet is fully usable with the official case on the tablet. The case features a silicone finish and a soft-touch inner material, ensuring the tablet doesn’t get scratched up if dropped. It comes in three matte colors: Hazel, Porcelain, and Rose.
Speck StandyShell Case
Speck is known for its modern rugged cases and it’s the only official partner for Pixel Tablet cases at launch. The StandyShell case for the Pixel Tablet features a germ-resistant coating, and the case itself is robust enough to withstand most drops. It also features a kickstand for better hands-free viewing angles and, like the official Google case, is compatible with the charging speaker dock. Speck also includes a one-year warranty with the StandyShell case, ensuring a positive experience post-purchase.
You can choose from three color options: Black/White, Kinda Coral/Rose Tea, and Off White/Serene Silver. All of them look great and are well suited to the Google device.
Speck Magfolio Case
The Speck MagFolio Tablet Case was the first folio-style case available for the Pixel Tablet. It’s very basic, yet professional-looking, comprised of polycarbonate, TPU, and microfiber. It features the antimicrobial protection Speck’s products are known for, a quick-release kickstand, and a one-year warranty. To use the Pixel Tablet with the dock, you simple remove the case from the device, which is attached magnetically. This is a great option if you only sometimes need a case, and want something that protects the screen while on the go.
Moko Magnetic Trifold
Most Pixel Tablet cases are pretty similar, but the Moko Magnetic Trifold does something different. Rather than wrapping around the display, it uses magnets to hold itself in place on the back. It still has a trifold design to cover the display when not in use, as well as a cutout in the back for the dock. The magnetic design just looks more streamlined and removes some of the bulk of traditional cases. It’s also very affordable and comes in several different colorways.
Spigen Thin Fit Pro
Trifold cases are nice, but honestly probably unnecessary since the Pixel Tablet already comes with a stand. If you want something nice and simple, the Spigen Thin Fit Pro is a great option. It’s a thin fabric case that feels great in the hand, and although there’s no large cutout in the back it still works just fine with the Google Tablet dock. Our only complaint is that it only comes in gray.
ATOOZ Slim Case
If you’re looking for a cheap Pixel Tablet case, this is a great option. It’s one of countless generic brands available on Amazon, but the case itself is a tried-and-true tri-fold folio design. There’s a cutout in the back for the dock, and when off the dock you can roll the cover to stand the tablet in different positions. It’s a simple PU leather case, but it’s a fraction of the cost of official Google or Speck cases.
Aippdo Protective Leather Case
Next up is another cheaper generic case, this time with a more unique design. On the surface it’s another PU leather tri-fold folio case, but it has a flap that opens and closes in the back. This means you can attach the Pixel Tablet to the dock when you need to, and close it to protect the port when on the go. The flap also has a stylus loop if digital art is your jam, although your artistic mileage on the Pixel Tablet might be limited.
Poetic TurtleSkin case
Our last pick is a bit overkill for a tablet that isn’t really designed to leave the house, but it can be a good option if you have extreme butterfingers or careless children. The Poetic TurtleSkin is a rugged case with thick bumpers for excellent drop protection. There’s still a cutout in the back for the dock, as well as vents to help dissipate heat. Despite being much larger than any official Google Pixel Tablet cases, it’s significantly cheaper.
