Some of the best Pixel cases are often ones made by Google itself. This year, Google released stylish and durable clear cases to show off the Pixel 6 and its colors. We highly recommend getting a protective case to keep your phone safe from life’s daily hazards, plus ensuring your investment lasts as long as possible.

Google’s new Pixel 6 case has a dual-layer design for durability, raised edges to keep the screen safe, and uses over 30% post-consumer recycled materials in the manufacturing process.

Pixel Perfect: Spigen Liquid Air Armor

Spigen makes some of the best cases around for any phone and offers several styles to fit everyone’s needs. However, one of our favorites is the Spigen Liquid Air Armor. Thanks to a dual-layer design, it offers plenty of protection, all without being too bulky or too thin. In addition, the textured sides and back will get you plenty of grip, which will surely be an upgrade for this slippery phone. We also like how Spigen matched Google’s design with the black stripe on the back around the cameras.

While this is our favorite Spigen case, the company offers a wide assortment of options. Those who need even more protection, or added features, should try the Spigen Tough Armor with a built-in kickstand and extra reinforced corners.

One of the first dual-layer cases on the market came from Incipio, with the DualPro line. Over the years, the company refined that great case into a rugged, durable, sleek case that offers two layers of protection into a slim, well-rounded case for most phones.

The new Incipio Duo line for Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro offers 12-ft drop protection in a slim case that’s not too bulky. They’re using a rugged inner shell with a soft-touch impact-resistant outer layer for improved comfort. Plus, these new cases offer an antimicrobial treatment that prevents 99.9% of surface bacteria. We also really like that each case has raised edges for screen protection, not to mention anti-slip bumper feet on the back for an improved grip and so it can’t slide off a table or surface.

Extra Tough: OtterBox Defender Series Case

OtterBox Pixel 6 cases

Otterbox is a well-known brand that should need no introduction at this point. It offers some of the most durable and rugged cases on the market and has for years. That said, OtterBox cases tend to be on the bulky side, so you’ll have to decide if they’re right for you. And while OtterBox does have slimmer options like the Symmetry Series, the Defender Series is one of the toughest.

This case offers the same sturdy and rugged design we’ve come to expect from Otterbox, with reinforced corners, raised edges, easy-to-press tactile buttons, and meets the military MIL-STD-810G standard for durability. Additionally, Otterbox added a silver-based antimicrobial additive that may help inhibit microbial growth and even make these cases 50% recycled plastic. And finally, the Defender comes with a free belt holster and kickstand add-on for those interested.
