The Pixel 2 XL was an expensive smartphone when it launched, starting at $849. If you still have one, it makes sense to spend a few extra bucks and get your hands on a case that not only protects the device but can also provide more grip and gives it a different look.

Of course, there are a lot of Google Pixel 2 XL cases still on the market, but not many new options. Don’t know which one to choose? Fear not my friend, that’s what this post is for. We’ve compiled a list of the best Pixel 2 XL cases, which you can check out below.
The best Google Pixel 2 XL cases:
Pixel 2 XL MNML Thin Case
Looking for a thin Pixel 2 XL case? There is no thinner case than the MNML Case at just 0.35 mm. It’s perfect for those of you looking for a minimal case that keeps the look and feel of your Pixel 2 XL. MNML designed its case to be completely free of branding, but a lip still protects the camera from drops. The case comes in five different colors including clear black, clear white, matte black, really blue, and red.
Spigen Liquid Crystal Google Pixel 2 XL Case
The problem with many cases is that they cover up the carefully designed phone itself. It’s for that reason that we like the Spigen Liquid Crystal — it’s perfectly clear. The case is made of a flexible TPU that’s easy to add and remove, and precise cutouts allow access to charging and the fingerprint reader. Overall, the case only adds half of a millimeter of bulk to your Pixel 2 XL, which isn’t bad at all.
Spigen Tough Armor Case with Kickstand
Spigen’s Tough Armor case kicks the protection of the Liquid Crystal up a notch. It’s a two-piece hybrid case with a shock-absorbing TPU bumper layered with a polycarbonate shell. Of course, added protection means a little bit of added bulk, but it doesn’t make the Pixel 2 XL uncomfortable in your pocket. The Spigen Tough Armor case also features a kickstand for hands-free streaming.
The Pixel 2 XL Vault case from Caseology is thin and extremely easy on the eyes thanks to its brushed black pattern. It’s made from a single piece of TPU for excellent shock absorption and earns a MIL-STD 810G rating. The case has cutouts for the camera, fingerprint sensor, and charging port, features tactile button covers, and provides you with more grip.
Bellroy Leather Case
This case has a very thin and minimalistic design that doesn’t stand out from the crowd like some of the other products on this list. It’s made from a flex polymer, environmentally certified leather, and a microfiber lining for cushioning. The case has cutouts for the camera, fingerprint scanner, as well as the power and volume buttons on the side. It can be yours in black, navy, caramel, or stone and comes with a three-year warranty for peace of mind.
Maxboost Premium Google Pixel 2 XL Card Case
The Pixel 2XL is a classy looking phone, so you should surround that phone with some additional style. The Maxboost PU leather wallet protects your phone on all sides, easily flipping open when you need to use your phone. Plus, as the name suggests, the case holds up to three cards and even some cash, so it can replace your wallet when you’re out and about. The case closes securely with a magnetic clasp that is a bit larger than we generally like to see, but that does help security. The case also acts as a kickstand for hands-free media consumption.
Maxboost Polycarbonate Case
Maxboost’s case protects your Pixel 2 XL without adding too much bulk. It’s made from polycarbonate, has all the necessary cutouts, and sports a raised lip that protects the screen of the device. The case features a shock-absorbing frame and a very minimalistic design that’s still easy on the eyes. It has a matte-finish coating that provides a great grip, and comes with a lifetime warranty.
Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro
The Unicorn Beetle Pro from Supcase is likely the most durable option on this entire list. It adds quite a bit of bulk and might be difficult to fit in a pocket, but Supcase includes a belt holster with each case to easy storage. Supcase’s Unicorn Beetle Pro case is designed with two distinct pieces — a TPU and polycarbonate shell and a polycarbonate lip. The two pieces ensure that your Pixel 2 XL won’t escape the case, though it can be a challenge to put the case on.
Of course, if you’re looking for something that has multiple features, you could take a look at the Spigen Slim Armor Wallet case. This is a rugged case that adds a lot of protection and bulk to your Pixel 2XL. But the bulk it adds isn’t wasted as the case also features a compartment that can hold two cards, such as a driver’s license and credit card.
