The best Google Pixel 4 XL cases you can buy
Google launched the Pixel 4 XL back in 2019, packed with a flagship processor and the company’s first dual-camera setup. It also shipped with a glass back that you’ll certainly want to keep safe. If you’re still holding onto one and are hoping to keep it safe, here are the best Google Pixel 4 XL cases you can buy.

The best Pixel 4 XL cases:
Speck Presidio Grip
The Speck Presidio Grip combines a polycarbonate outer shell and an impact-absorbing inner material to keep the phone safe. What we really liked about the design is the angled rubber ridges on the back that add to the grip and stop the phone from sliding off surfaces. Raised bezels around the screen, covered buttons, reinforced corners, and Microban antimicrobial technology (that reduces bacteria by 99%) add to the protective capabilities of the case as well. It’s a simple case, but for most people, we think it will be more than enough.

Ringke Fusion-X Pixel 4 XL case
The Ringke Fusion-X comes with a dual-layer design and features a MIL-STD 810G-516.6 certification for impact resistance. A raised lip keeps the display and the rear camera safe, while the sides and corners are reinforced with a TPU bumper to provide added drop protection. Although we like the design, it is quite striking and may not appeal to everyone.

Poetic Affinity Pixel 4 XL case
When it comes to rugged cases, we highly recommend products from Poetic. The Poetic Affinity case combines a hard shell and an impact-resistant bumper with reinforced corners to provide military-grade (MIL-STD 810G-516.6) protection for your phone. The raised ridges on the back have a matte finish to keep them scratch-free. An extended lip keeps the display, rear camera, and fingerprint scanner free from damage.

PHNX Thin Case
If you don’t need protection and want to prioritize having the thinnest possible Pixel 4 XL case, the PHNX Thin Case is as thin and light as it gets. At just .35mm thin, it adds no bulk or weight to your phone. Granted, it also doesn’t add much protection, so you’ll need to be careful.

Procase genuine leather wallet
The Procase Pixel 4 XL wallet case is made with genuine leather that looks and feels great. A magnetic clasp holds the folio cover in place, and the latter can also be folded into a kickstand. It comes with two slots for bank cards or ID and a large cash pocket.

Otterbox Defender Pixel 4 XL case
Otterbox is usually the go-to for anyone looking for a rugged case for their phone, and the Defender series provides the most protection. It’s thick and bulky, with covered buttons and ports, and has a raised lip to keep the display safe. The Otterbox Defender also comes with a belt clip holster. This rugged case is expensive and will be overkill for some. If complete protection is what you want, though, that’s what you get.

The UAG Plasma is the perfect way to give your Pixel 4 XL some rugged protection without hiding its style. It features UAG’s signature honeycomb reinforcement, and the thick TPU bumpers on the top and bottom ensure plenty of impact absorption. Just like almost all of UAG’s offerings, the Plasma secures a MIL-STD 810G rating, so you can sleep easily knowing that your Pixel is safe.
