    Use a case. Protect your investment. Just because you haven’t dropped your smartphone doesn’t mean it won’t happen. If you want bare-minimum, ultra-thin protection for the body of your phone, Peel’s Super Thin Case is for you.

    About this review: via the Mobile Nations Community Review Team, Peel sent over a Very Silver case for me to review. This is not fake review.

    Taking the case out of the box, I had an initial impression of the material feeling flimsy but that’s because it’s so thin. Ridiculously thin. Snap it onto the Pixel and that impression goes away immediately. It fits snug but I had no issues taking this case on and off.

    Fit and finish are near perfect. Cut-outs for mics and buttons and the charging port appear tight and as close as they could be. It looks like they were made with a bit more precision that other cases. Unlike thicker cases, as your reach around for the hardware buttons there’s no uncomfortable sharp edges poking at your fingers or palm.

    There are two features are missing from my personal list of features I want in a case. I prefer my cases to employ a lip design for the front as an added extra layer of protection for when I lay my phones flat on their face. Peel’s design does not have this. In addition, to me the Peel case doesn’t feel like it adds any significant grippiness over using the Pixel without a case. With the case on, the Pixel could slip out of my hand just as easily.

    But that said, this case is so thin that it feels like there’s no case on it at all. And if you’re looking for minimal protection, that’s what you want with a case like this.

    Peel’s bread and butter is support for the iPhone so it’s nice to see support for Google’s flagship Android smartphone. I hope this leads to Peel supporting other key Android devices.

    This case is available in three different colors - complementing the Pixel’s Very Silver, Quite Black, and Really Blue. They’re transparent enough to see the glass window and Google logo behind it. And unlike other cases, Peel’s logo is nowhere to be found on the case itself - if you’re into that sort of thing.

    At just 0.35mm thin, Peel’s Super Thin Case for the Google Pixel is an excellent option for those that want minimalist protection. Peel’s case design allows the Pixel’s design to shine through.

    Ry’s Pros
    • Extremely thin
    • Little adjustment in handfeel vs. no case
    • No branding!

    Ry’s Cons
    • Still slippery - doesn't add any significant grip
    • Doesn’t protect the phone when face down

    Great review! I have heard of this brand before but no one has actually reviewed one for the Pixel. That is a bummer about it not protecting the phone face down though.

    I have tempered glass on my Pixel using the Peel case and I feel enough protection with the phone being set face down. I wouldn't trust dropping the phone or tossing it face down since the case is so thin. Not even sure how much this case would protect from a drop on a hard surface, it's more for protecting against scratches and small bumps. For me this case works great and I very happy with the purchase.
