If you want to buy a Google Pixel 8 or Pixel 8 Pro soon, you are probably also interested in finding the best cases available to protect your investment from potential accidents. After all, no one wants to see scratches or even broken screens on their new smartphone.

To make things easier for you, throughout this story you will find some of the best Google Pixel 8 series cases available in different price segments and categories. So, you will have a reliable guide that will help you decide which one best suits your needs or personal tastes.

Best cases for the new Google Pixel 8 & 8 Pro

Whether you are looking for a transparent, traditional, rugged case, slim or one that supports MagSafe, we bring together options for all tastes. It’s noteworthy that although the reference images only show one of the Pixel 8 series models, the cases are available for both (vanilla and Pro).

Traditional cases

Official case

Among the official cases, the simply called ‘Pixel 8/ Pixel 8 Pro Case’ in the Google online store is one of the most recommended. The company offers them in colors that match those available for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. It has a soft silicone finish and fits perfectly to both devices, being also thin. This case costs $35 through the Google online store.

Spigen Liquid Air

Spigen puts its extensive experience into the Liquid Air case, which not only offers a slim profile but also adds a finish that improves grip. Its design with geometric shapes is also eye-catching, and its price of $30 places it among the best in its segment.


If you are looking for a case that combines a good level of protection and attractive design, the Peak Design ‘EVERYDAY CASE’ is among the best you can find. Not only does it have a slim profile (2.4 mm), but also a Nylon finish on the back area for a distinctive look and feel. This one costs $50 through their website.

X-level case

The X-level Pixel 8 series case could be the best for those looking for a very affordable option, without sacrificing decent protection and attractive design. This one also boasts a slim profile, anti-fall protection and better grip, but even has a back texture that imitates leather. At just $13 on Amazon, it’s hard to go wrong with this one.

X-level Carbon Fiber

If you are a fan of cases with a ‘Carbon Fiber’ design but don’t want it to be rugged or too expensive, we have you covered too. X-level appears again with a case that stands out among others thanks to its design, good protection levels (it covers the camera module as well) and an affordable price of $16 on Amazon.

Clear cases

Official clear case

If what you are looking for is a clear case, there are also some good options. First, Google offers its own official clear case as well, which is made of TPU with an anti-scratch coating to make it more durable. According to the company, this case can protect against drops of up to 12-foot. It costs $30 in the Google online store.

Caseology Capella Case

Caseology, one of the best-known brands in the segment, offers the Capella Case with a transparent finish and a slim profile. Unlike the official one, this case provides a layer of protection over the camera module, covering the entire area around the sensors. It’s even a little cheaper, costing $20 on Amazon.

AICase Clear Full Body

If you are looking for a rugged-transparent case, the AICase Clear Full Body could be the answer. This one includes rugged edges (silicone bumpers) and a solid back area (PC) for better protection against falls, while keeping the phone’s design visible, and even includes a tempered glass screen protector. You can buy this one for about $17 on Amazon.

Oterkin clear case

The Oterkin clear case for Pixel 8 series appears to be another good alternative that boasts good anti-fall protection thanks to its padded but not bulky edges and a transparent design that does not hide the device. You can get this one for about $16 on Amazon.

OtterBox Symmetry Series Hard Shell

If what you are looking for is a thin, transparent case that offers a high level of drop protection (without being rugged), the OtterBox Symmetry Series Hard Shell emerges as a good option. This one boasts the DROP+ protection rating military-grade standard. However, the price of this one goes up to $50.

MagSafe support cases

Juntone Magnetic clear case

If you are interested in a case with MagSafe support, there are also some options for you. First, the Juntone Magnetic clear case offers a transparent design, protection against drops up to 10 feet high, and support for the beloved magnetic charging technology. You can get it for $22 on Amazon.

dbrand GRIP CASE

In higher price ranges, there is the dbrand ‘GRIP CASE’ with MagSafe support. Like other cases from the brand, there are multiple colors and finishes to choose from. Its textured edges and precise cuts for each button/port give it a fairly premium look and feel. Its price is about $55 on the company’s official website.

Mous clear case

Going up even more in price we find the Mous clear case that boasts the best of the previous two, offering a transparent design (slightly frosted) and MagSafe support, but also adding high impact resistance without being too bulky. You can purchase this case for $70 on Amazon.

Slim cases

Ringke Onyx

There are many users who prefer to use slim cases, which are supposed to offer basic protection against scratches and drops from a low height, but maintain the thinness of the device. There are some great alternatives such as the Ringke Onyx, a thin and elegant case that also adds a textured finish to the back area, while completely protecting the camera module. You can get it for $15 on Amazon.

Spigen Thin Fit

Staying in the affordable segment, the renowned brand Spigen offers its Thin Fit case for the Pixel 8 series, with a classic TPU finish, reinforced edges for additional protection against drops and multiple colors to choose from. It can be yours for about $18 on Amazon.

Totallee Thin case

Totallee has also designed a form-fitting case that appears to ‘merge’ with the phone. This is the Totallee Thin case for Pixel 8 series, available in both black and transparent for about $39 on Amazon.

Mous Jet Black

The Mous brand appears again on the list with the Jet Black, a premium case with a minimalist and discrete design, as well as attractive. In addition, it includes MagSafe support, so you can use this technology without problems. The price of this model rises to $60 on their website.


As a bonus, did you know that you can have a slim and ‘rugged’ case at the same time? This is what the UAG ‘SCOUT SERIES’ case for Pixel 8 series offers. Also, its price is not too high, costing about $30 on their website.

Rugged cases

Spigen Tough Armor case

For the public who always looks for maximum protection regardless of adding some fat and weight to their phones, we also think of you. We’ll start with Spigen, who appears on the list again thanks to his Tough Armor case. This one offers multiple layers of anti-impact protection and a smooth finish, also integrating a stand to place the phone horizontally. You can purchase it for $45 on their website.


In a more affordable segment is the TORRAS Case, which stands out for offering MagSafe support too. The manufacturer promotes ‘military grade’ protection against drops, and the case also includes a stand in its rear area. In addition, its design seeks to combine both its rugged nature and a more traditional profile. You can get this one for $33 on Amazon.


The CaseBorne combines a fairly noticeable rugged appearance, MagSafe support, a clip on its back area and even an included screen protector (tempered glass) for a price of $35 on Amazon, making it another excellent option.


There are also similar rugged cases available for around half the price of the previous ones, such as the ANTSHARE case. This one is available in multiple colors and offers high resistance to shocks and impacts, also integrating a rear stand. Additionally, this one includes additional protection for the cameras in the form of a sliding window. Its price of $16 makes it one of the best value for money out there.


To top it off, in the lowest possible price segment is the RMOCR whose rugged nature is notable at first glance, but with a design that manages to be attractive. As in the previous case, it includes a tempered glass screen protector, and all for only $13 on Amazon.
