    I'm looking for a case for my new Pixel 4XL that doesn't hinder the new Android "swipe up from the bottom" and "swipe in from the right/left" replacements for the old home and back "buttons". All the cases I have come across so far have a fairly tall edge, designed to protect the screen in the event of a "face down" drop. That's terrific, but makes swiping from bottom/side a pain. The ideal case would have the taller edges at the 4 corners but have the edge even with the screen on the top, bottom, and sides. I've been searching all over online and haven't come up with anything that is fairly thin (I don't want a bulky case) but has this combination of edges on the sides/bottom. Any recommendations are welcomed!

    The Google Fabric case is a "maybe" for me. Wish I could see one on my phone to gauge the thickness of the sides.

    I have a Spigen Liquid Air on my Pixel 4XL right now. I love it. But it does have an outer lip on all 4 edges and the OP said he (or she) was looking for a case with no outer lip in some sides

    The outer edge doesn't keep me from being able to use swipe gestures. Maybe it's different on the XL?

    Looks like a nice case and a very decent price. Wish it had lower sides on the top/bottom/sides with thicker at the 4 corners. I see your comment that it doesn't affect your swiping from the side/bottom, but I seem to be pretty sensitive to anything sticking up past the edge of the screen.

    Just came across some pics of the Pitaka MagEZ case and it looks pretty slick. The sides look about flush with the screen. The only thing it is lacking is thicker edges at the corners to provide some "face drop" protection.

    Pitaka is pretty minimal protection

    No drop protection with Pitaka or screen lip...but sure feel awesome

    That's a gorgeous looking case! I gotta look into getting one. The Pitaka MagEZ cases are supposedly pretty strong also.

    Still looking for a case with raised bezel on the 4 corners but not along the edges. I love the new(er) Android gestures for back/home (as opposed to the "buttons") but have difficulty executing them reliably when the phone has a case with a bezel higher than the screen on the sides. I was positive that I would find something. That some case vendor has assessed this problematic situation and started making a case with the raised screen protecting bezel at just the 4 corners, but if someone is doing it, I'm not finding it. Sigh...
