The original dual layer protective case from Incipio offers the best of both worlds when it comes to protecting your Pixel XL, despite looking slightly bland.


The DualPro is light to hold, despite being a ‘bulky’ case. With its double layer of protection; inner layer being made of silicon and outer layer constructing of Plextonium (a proprietary blend of Polycarbonate) you have a reassuring feeling that this phone can take a few bumps, while still managing to feel excellent in the hand.


The case is smooth to touch, it has a soft matte feeling to it, which helps when holding the phone one handed. I have tested a few cases for the Pixel XL and this is by far the best feeling case in the hand.


The buttons are impeccable on this case, they are second to none. It honestly feels like there isn’t a case covering the buttons when I increase my volume or lock the phone.

Ports align up perfectly with the case; I didn’t experience any problems with sound playback or plugging in my charger.


My only gripe with the case would be the design, its plain. That’s not a bad thing, depending on your interest, but the reason I keep a case on my Pixel, apart from protecting the device is to make it look better, and this case, in my opinion doesn’t do that.

What I do love about this case far outweighs the only bad point I could find. The phone feels excellent in the hand, it’s easy to hold, it protects the phone, it’s incredibly light despite being chunky, the gold colour I have looks really nice, and the buttons…. Oh the buttons! You need to experience this case to understand just how easy pressing the buttons are. Too many cases are stiff and thick when pressing the buttons, not the DualPro.

Thanks for taking the time to write and photograph such an informative review of this case. I just found it as I'm about to buy this case for my Pixel 2–in red. I hate that nobody replied to it when you posted.

I agree with you about it being a little plain in some colors, but the red is fantastic! The images online make it look pretty bright, but it's actually a deeper red that you can see some black in at certain angles. I think the blue is like this too.

Has it held up well? Any regrets?
