Best of both worlds

Incipio NGP Case

Incipio's NGP Case provides the best of both worlds: protection and a unique design. It has a two-tone finish with the top part comprising of a translucent material that still shows off the Pixel 3 design while the bottom part is a white polymer that offsets the color quite nicely.

Classic grip

Speck Grip Case

Speck's Grip Case for the Pixel 3 adds the classic finish that debuted years ago. Made of a hard, polycarbonate outer shell and an inner lining of IMPACTIUM rubber material, it can absorb falls of up to 10 feet. The outer shell also has rubber ridges that make it super grippy in the hand.

Those are plenty of options to keep your Pixel 3 snug and safe. The one case I'd go with is the Google Fabric Case as it's a first-party case that fits perfectly with the Pixel 3. However, I'm a sucker for leather and if I had a second choice, I'd go with the Bellroy Leather Case in the Caramel finish. Whichever you decide to go for, your phone will be protected.
