Want a clear case for your Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro (also available), but without the shinny surface that is a fingerprint magnet? The Ringke Fusion Matte case’s matte finish is “anti-fingerprints” and resists against oily smudges. It has raised edges all around the case to minimize surface contact with your Google phone, as well as a built-in hole for a hand strap for added security (strap not included). Sure, this Ghostek case might add some bulk to your phone’s corners and sides, but you will appreciate its shock-absorbing abilities if you ever drop your precious Pixel 6. This case is compatible with Qi wireless charging and is available in pink, clear and translucent gray.
As lovely as the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are, their smooth glass backs, as Dan Seifert pointed out in his review, are exceedingly slippery. And, because to their cheap feel and still-slippery texture, the official Google frosted recycled plastic cases aren’t ideal. So, as the new owner of Google’s flagship phone, where does that leave you? You can’t just leave your brand-new phone out in the open. That’s why, whether you’re searching for a case for yourself or a present for a new Pixel 6 owner, we’ve picked up several third-party cases that fit the Pixel’s unique style. Just keep in mind that cases may be out of stock or take a long time to arrive, so you’ll need a lot of luck and patience this holiday season to find the perfect case.
Looking for a frosted case that is even slimmer than Google’s official Pixel 6 case? Then this 0.35mm thin minimalist case from PHNX is for you. The MNML is a lightweight case that supports wireless charging and offers raised edges to prevent scratches to the camera lenses. Pixel 6 Pro case is also available; case comes in Frosted White, Frosted Black and Matte Black. For an ultra slim case for the Pixel 6, you can’t do much better than this Aorstke minimalist case. Made from hard PC material, it brings grip to your phone without adding bulk; raised edges around your camera bar and screen prevent your screen and camera lenses from getting scratched. It comes in black, pink, green and blue, and is also available for the Pixel 6 Pro.
The SolidSuit is a 3mm slim case that protects your Pixel 6 from significant drops — the company claims it is effective from as high as an 11-foot drop (MIL-STD 810G). Best of all, Rhinoshield has many collaborations with other brands like Snoopy and the NBA and even allows you to print your own custom design on a SolidSuit. Also available for Pixel 6 Pro. Want to see your phone’s unique colorway without sacrificing protection on all sides? This Ultra Hybrid case from Spigen does it all. It wraps the sides of the phone and the camera bar in shock-absorbing material, while its clear center layer is protective without adding bulk to your phone. Also available for Pixel 6 Pro.
