    I usually buy Spigen cases. However I ended up buying the LifeProof fre. Fits great no issues. The only thing I don't like is the speaker sounds muffled. I bought this case because I live in Hawaii it's certified to protect the pixel 2xl from salt water.

    I have a Pixel 2... Been rotating thru 3 cases...

    1. Spigen Thin Fit
    2. Ringke Bevel - Smoke Black
    3. Spigen Rugged Armour

    I love the minimal design on the Thin Fit and that I finally have a dedicated spot for the metal plate for my car mount. The only drawback is the lack of drop protection.

    I also am really impressed by the Ringke, first time Ringke user. Great grip, minimal fingerprints and looks great with my just black Pixel 2. Haven't had any major drops with it but feel confident it can hold its own.

    The let down of the group is Rugged Armour... I find the case to be more slippery than a naked phone... And it seems to add a significant amount of bulk for a TPU case.

    My favorite part is that I use the magnetic car mount and it goes INSIDE of the case.

    I tried several cases & now I have the Incipio Dualpro on my Pixel 2 (non XL) & am pretty happy with it.

    The only tiny negative is that the case wasn't designed with a little extra room between the 2 layers, so there's ever so slight of a bulge from the plate for my magnetic car mount (you can't see it, but it's there). I now have a thin round metal plate between the case layers & that fits better than the more rectangular plate I originally had in there. The rectangular one was pushing out a couple hairs on the back edge near the logo, & my fingers found that annoying. Thankfully the round disc works ok.

    So I've tried several cases for the pixel 2xl. I wanted something clear to show off the black and white but also slim and protective. I decided on this case because it's slim has anyone drop protection on the edges and additional grip grooves on the side. The grooves make it easy to hold and not tpu slippery.

    I picked it up in clear and white on the edges.

    I can confirm that Android Pay works perfectly fine with the fabric case.

    I've used Incipio DualPro for a couple of months now, here are my thoughts:

    It provides a good amount of grip without feeling like it's going to slip out of my hands.

    Protection levels are really good and I feel confident that it could withstand being dropped on the floor.

    Materials feel high quality.

    Case can be used with a plastic screen protector.

    The only negative has to do with the buttons. They do not provide good feedback and are stiff to use making the experience of clicking the buttons feel like trash. I love this case but if the buttons get any stiffer then I might need to reconsider this case, for now it is staying on.

    is anyone here a long term user of the bellroy leather case on their P2xl? I just ordered one to try it out but am now concerned that the quality will not be on par. I guess I will wait for it to arrive and see for myself

    I love the Google fabric cases, so I'll probably get one of those. Does anyone know if Google's accessories are available at retailers other than Google?

    I'll probably ditch the case at some point, though. I never use cases for my phones. I'm still caseless with my 6s Plus and I haven't broken it or anything.

    I just returned my LifeProof fre case due to the muffling effect it had on the microphone, the shop replaced it with the same case but looking at it, seems like there has been done subtle changes made - mic not muffled and the camera window thing has more protection from being scratched

    I'm disappointed that my Spiegen Liquid Crystal (tpu) clear case is starting to turn brown after only two months of use. I do want a clear, thin case...anyone have the Ringke Fusion clear? I see that the back is polycarbonate (not tpu). So perhaps it's less likely to turn brown?

    I can recommend two:

    1. Diztronic TPU - LOVE this case. It was my second case and now daily case after the MagCase. If you NEED the lip to protect the screen so it does not touch the ground if your phone somehow falls, this is the case. Beautifully made, very minimal look, thin, and seems like it'd provide very good protection.

    2. Pitaka MagCase - also loved this case although it did not have a lip and the screen is exposed. For $40 the quality, build, look, and feel, everything about this case is high quality. If I didn't need the lip this case would still be on.

    I had a Speck and it was always pulling my pocket out and collecting tons of dust at the top of the phone. I then tried the Google Fabric and didn't care for it that much. I am now waiting on a Supcase Hybrid for it.

    I just ordered a Rhinoshield Solidsuit for my Pixel 2. I had a Playproof on my iPhone 6 and it was one of the best cases I have ever used. I also love the Patchworks ITG Level (I have one on my work S8) but Patchworks confirmed that they will NOT be making any cases for the Pixel 2

    I went with the Google live case and custom added white and black colors to mach my Panda colors since I loved the Panda colors. I also ended up getting the more expensive dual layer case with the same theme and switch between the 2 depending what I'm doing that day. If I know I'm going to be somewhere where I migh require a bit more protection like pool side, beach hiking etc I'll use the dual layer case if not I stick to the thiner case.

    So I've had my Pixel 2 for a couple weeks. I've mostly stuck to Spigen and diztronic cases the last 2-3 years. Went with a Spigen Lewis Crystal case to start. Had the intention of getting a dbrand skin to go under it but it was just to slippery and dirt kept getting under it so I had to return it. Last couple phones have had a Spigen rugged armor but I wanted something different and the diztronic just wasn't appealing to me this time.

    Ended up with a Spigen Slim Armor. I had a tough armor for my S7 and I liked it but I didn't like that the buttons were flush with the side of the case so it made it very hard for me to tell where the buttons were without looking. I love the slim armor, it's not as bulky as the tough armor and the buttons stick out just enough to feel them. The phone feels very secure in it and the kickstand is a nice bonus.
