Google Fabric Case
While official Pixel 2 XL cases are going to be more expensive, they are arguably of better quality, and some folks just prefer them over 3rd party options. As its name implies, the Pixel 2 XL case is made of fabric that gives it a very trendy look.

The case is compatible with the Active Edge feature that allows you to launch Assistant just by squeezing the sides of the phablet. It has cutouts for the camera, fingerprint scanner, as well as the charging port and sports a silicone G logo on the back. This official Pixel 2 XL case is sold by Google and can be yours for $40.

Looking for a thin Pixel 2 XL case? There is no thinner case than the MNML Case at just 0.35 mm. Perfect for those of you looking for a minimal case that keeps the look and feel of your Pixel 2 XL.
The case comes in five different colors including: clear black, clear white, matte black, really blue and red. It’s on sale for $14.99.
Google Earth Live Case
Here’s another official Pixel 2 XL case, and a very eye-catching one at that. It features an image/scene from Google Earth and comes with a companion app that updates your wallpaper with a new landscape every day.
It’s compatible with the Active Edge feature and has a dual-layer design that should keep your phablet safe from harm. The case weighs almost 50 grams, is made of polycarbonate and TPU, and has a matte finish. You can choose between the “river” and “rock” variants, both of which will set you back $50.
Google Customizable Live Case
The customizable live case from Google is similar to the Earth Live Case, but with one important difference. Instead of choosing a design, you can make one yourself. You can unleash your creativity and make the case unique by customizing it with your favorite photo, while the companion app will turn the wallpaper into a slideshow of your cherished memories.
You can also customize the case by choosing from one of the modern artworks by various photographers, illustrators, and artists, or design it using a stylized map of a place that matters to you. Google’s Customizable Live Case is compatible with Active Edge and starts at $40.
ZeroLemon Battery Case
What makes ZeroLemon’s case different from the rest is that it also doubles as a battery. So not only will it protect your device, it will also power it at the same time. It features a massive 8,500 mAh battery and has an LED power meter on the back, so you always know how much juice there’s left.
However, it’s also extremely bulky, so it might not be the best option for everyone. The case is 0.9 inches thick (2.2 cm) and weighs 7.1 ounces (201 g). This definitely isn’t something you would want to use every day, but it can come in handy a number of times. To get it, you’ll have to dish out $59.99.

Caseology Geometric Design Case
