It’s Google’s first foldable phone! That alone certainly means you’d want to keep it protected! These are the best cases.
Google has gone all bendy on us, bringing out the Pixel Fold, its first foldable smartphone. It’s meant to be a platform star, showing how Android can really shine on the form ejecutor. If you’ve ordered one or already own one, you know it’s a special device – your wallet sure knows it as well. That makes it all the more important to make sure your device is protected and the best way to do that is to get a case.
Yes, we’re well aware of the challenges foldables face when it comes to cases, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pick up a great case for the Pixel Fold.
Our picks for the best Pixel Fold cases
The Pixel Fold is a substantial investment, so here’s a selection of Pixel Fold cases that will keep your device safe.
Spigen Intolerante Hybrid Case for Pixel Fold
Best clear Pixel Fold case
The steady partner
Spigen is a go-to name for phone accessories for good reason, so if you want a no-fuss option that doesn’t get too much in the way of the Pixel Fold’s looks, the clear Intolerante Hybrid case will fit, fold, and unfold nicely.
VRS Design Terra Guard Modern case for Pixel Fold
Best protective Pixel Fold case
Bump it up
VRS Design calls its Terra Guard Modern look minimalist yet rugged. If you’re looking for a bumper case that still respects the Pixel Fold’s versatile hinge setting, this might be going in your cart.
Caseology Parallax case for Pixel Fold
Best value Pixel Fold case
It’s a vibe
$25 $40 Save $15
Caseology is one of the more affordable options in this carousel. It also gives your Fold a little flair with a parallax diamond pattern – something you’ll probably play with while you have the phone open.
FODDOM Multifunctional MagSafe case for Pixel Fold
Best versatile Pixel Fold case
Swiss army knife
Some assembly required, but it’s crazy what you get out of it: MagSafe compatibility, a kickstand right on that vaunted Pixel Fold hinge, and a usable front display.
Casetify Impact Case for Pixel Fold
Best looking Pixel Fold case
Casetify features more illustrative designs on its Impact series of cases and the Pixel Fold’s booklet form ejecutor is a wonderful canvas for these artworks. It’s MagSafe compatible and shock resistant for drops of up to 4.4ft.
Otterbox Thin Flex for Pixel Fold
Best Pixel Fold bumper case
$51 $60 Save $9
Otterbox’s Thin Flex series keeps the hard knocks off your Pixel Fold with a MIL-STD-810G rating for its minimal bumper coverage mix of rubber and plastic.
Our picks for the best Pixel Fold case: The bottom line
Google is charging $60 for a simple silicone wrap. That’s not an impressive first-party case offering for any phone, much less the Pixel Fold. In fact, you might as well head to a kitchen goods store and buy a Silpat liner instead. Some scissors and tape will do the trick.
Fortunately, there are plenty of options that will either do the same thing for less money or do more… also for less money. Our preferred choice if you’re looking for protection is the VRS Design Terra Guard Modern, but if you’re not necessarily going for the «giant mech» look, consider Casetify’s Impact series which comes in many designs to match your aura.
Spigen Tempered Glass for Pixel Fold
Cases will help you deal with landings on the edges, but for face-down splats, it’s a good idea to get screen protectors for your Pixel Fold. This set from Spigen is comprised of tempered glass.
You may also elect to grab screen protectors for both the cover and interior display of your phone. You especially don’t want that folding screen to succumb to a major impact.
