    What protective cases are you using that allow for easy access to the fingerprint scanner?

    I've been trying out the Spigen Tough Armor but find it's hard to use the fingerprint scanner

    Using this case https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08J824HFS...cUvbUpU6889500

    And so far I really like it. It's not bulky, protects the entire phone and makes it so easy to access the finger print sensor bc of the design. It has like a smooth piece so you can easily detect and slide your finger right to it.

    I was looking at that case the other day. Seemed to be one of the best options on Amazon even though it is so cheap. Good to hear a positive review. I too noticed that little slide in spot for your finger for the sensor. Smart design.

    I use a Spigen Liquid Air and a DBrand Grip Case.
    The Spigen is really thin and the Grip is what it's name is, grippy.

    I just got the Google Fabric case. It looks and feels really cool. My first fabric case. Will have to see how it feels on the phone. I'll be ordering the phone on Black Friday - sale or no sale, just have to see if there are any discounts on AT&T.

    I bought the skin from Sopi guard for 10 bucks.

    Application was very simple as it's only the back, and not the sides. Camera skin, I put on last.

    They have a great variety of skins.

    Hope this helps

    The Ringke?

    It's right in between slim and bulky. A nice happy medium without looking like a brick.

    Spigen liquid air also. Very good case. Great value.

    I have a Spigen Rugged Armour and Rhinoshield Solidsuit. The fingerprint cutout on the Solidsuit is slightly larger and angled steeper, so I find that my finger is less likely to partly miss the reader and end up on the camera. The Solidsuit is slightly wider in hand, but is much more protective than the the Rugged Armour.

    Thank you! I usually switch between 2-3 cases, but with this combo, I've only used this one.

    It is definitely a good combo! I too usually have 3-5 cases per phone! I'm obsessed with phone accessories!

    Is anybody here going caseless? How well does the paint on the black and gray hold up (considering you haven't dropped the phone or scratched it with keys? I'm very gentle with my phones so I guess I'm wondering if it can withstand gentle use and being put in an empty pocket without issues.

    I think as long as you are careful, your phone should be okay! I too am very gentle with my phones and even baby them, so I can understand your hesitation to go caseless!

    It seems that there just aren't the amount of high quality cases available for the pixel 5 as there have been for past pixels. Not a good sign for where pixel sales have been trending

    I agree. There have been a few cases that I found that would have been perfect for my pixel 5 case, only to find out that case is only made for iPhone. I was hoping to get a Power Support International case for my P5. They aren't even making any Pixel 5 cases.

    This is the Fusion X which is much more robust than the standard Fusion. The black bumpers all the way around are what has been updated. Despite those bumpers the case, being on the smaller phone, is pretty minimalist.
    I find the added bulk of those bumpers to actuallybe welcome.

    I dropped a bunch of those older phones in the original Fusion a bunch of times. Only once did a screen cracked only once. On a couple of occasions the screen protector cracked. So I'm fairly confident the X will be more effective.

    I went with the Spigen Rugged Armor. Really like the slim design of the case. I'll admit, I did miss the finger print reader a few times, the first couple of days, after putting the case on.
