Buying a smartphone is easy. Just compare the price, camera, processor and anything that makes it relevant at the time of purchase. The hardest part might be what comes after that. Choosing a case for the smartphone might be one such hurdle you get into after purchasing a brand new phone. Now that the new Pixel 6 and the 6 Pro are here, the lucky ones among you who already own either one of them might be a bit confused as to which case to get. So let’s look at some of the best Cases for the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro.
Must See: Google working on new Pixel buds as per FCC listings
Even though Google is selling official Cases for both the Pixel 6 and the 6 Pro, they are something that even the fans won’t prefer to buy. There are multiple factors at play when choosing a smartphone Case. These factors include the additional weight and bulkiness of the new Case, shock absorption capabilities, look and feel on hand, etc. Note that we’ll only be covering Cases from Amazon.com as it is one of the most used e-commerce platforms in the US.
List of Best Cases for Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro
Before we proceed further, most brands in our list might be using the term “Military Grade Protection”, which is nothing more than an advertising gimmick. Even with the most durable Case from this list, the probability of breaking the phone is still significantly higher. As long as you’re not using a flip-type Case, the chances of breaking the display are identical to a phone without a Case. So make sure you slap on a screen protector before even turning on your phone for the first time.
Milomdoi Shockproof Case for Pixel 6
We’ll start with the simple one. The Milomdoi (try saying it ten times) Shockproof Case is for those values simplicity. The single tone black design gives a premium look to the already premium looking Pixel 6. As for protection, the Case adds a 1mm ring across the edges of the display of your Pixel 6. The Case also adds another 1.5mm thick layer of a plastic ring across the borders of the rear camera. The innermost Silicone layer can likely protect your phone from falls of a height of up to 6.8 ft/2m.
Milomdoi Shockproof Case for the Pixel 6 is now on sale on Amazon for $18.99, so be sure to check it out.
IMBZBK Shockproof Case for Pixel 6 Pro
This one, on paper, looks very similar to the last one except, this one is for the Pixel 6 Pro. Like the Milomdoi Case, the IMBZBK Shockproof Case for Pixel 6 Pro adds a 1mm ring across the edges of the display. The plastic ring across the borders of the rear camera is also the same as the Milomdoi Case. However, the IMBZBK Case is drop-tested from heights of up to 10 feet (over 3 meters). It should mean your phone might be able to endure those occasional falls from the balcony.
As for pricing, you can get the IMBZBK Shockproof Case for $16.97 from Amazon.
Spigen Tough Armor Case for the Pixel and Pixel 6 Pro
The last two on our list followed is a minimal design. But what if you’re looking for a bonus, like a kickstand. The Spigen Tough Armor Case manages to deliver a kickstand while bumping up protection. As the name suggests, you could get the Case for both the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro from Amazon. The interesting fact is that both of them costs the same. You could get the black variant for $17.99, and the remaining two color variants cost $2 extra.
Spigen uses a combination of TPU and Polycarbonate as the primary materials for the Case. It ensures your phone stays protected from drops and scratches. The kickstand doesn’t seem to have compromised the thickness, as the Case is relatively thin.

Caseology Vault Protective Case for the Pixel and Pixel 6 Pro
Like the Spigen Tough Armor Case, this one is also for Pixel 6 and the 6 Pro. But what makes this one great is the fact that it is a silicone Case. A silicone Case is always soft to the touch, and you can hold it for extended periods with very minimal discomfort. You could get the Case in Urban Gray, Matte Black, or Sage Green. For the first time, black feels outdated compared to the other two variants, especially the Sage Green variant. Even though silicone is not the best way to protect your smartphone, it does give your phone a premium feel like none other in this list.
As for pricing, the Caseology Vault Protective Case will cost around $12.99.

Aeska Flexible Case for the Pixel and Pixel 6 Pro
If you’re someone who likes to showcase your phone’s color or to capture the Google logo during rear cam mirror selfies, this one might be for you. The product description page of the Aeska Flexible Case for the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro seems to be exaggerating things to an extreme level. Even though this one is primarily a silicone Case, Aeska claims it to be a Silicone, Rubber, Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), and Gel Case. However, Aeska does seem to offer all the necessary protection, including raised edges for the camera and display.
Both the models will only cost you under $10, and for such a low price, exaggerations of these sorts are common.

Foluu PU Leather Case for the Pixel 6 Pro
A folding Case is the right choice if you put your phone and keys in the same pocket. The Foluu PU Leather Case uses a combination of PU leather and Soft TPU to protect your phone from accidents and falls. This one is the only phone Case in this list that could offer protection to the entire display. The Case also gives you the option to carry essential things like a Credit card or a $100 bill. The clasp is magnetic, meaning your phone will remain protected from external dirt and debris.
You could get the Foluu PU Leather Case for $11.99 for the Pixel 6 Pro from Amazon. You also have the option to choose between blue, black or grey as the colour of the leather.
That should wrap things for now. Even if you’re planning to buy a folding Case, we highly insist you install a good screen protector for your device. If you don’t wish to spoil the look of your device, we recommend you get a clear Case.
