The X factor: Ringke Fusion-X

This big brother of the Fusion features a beefier bumper and reinforced corners for extra protection, and the translucent red version is so lovely.

Tough as a gemstone: Ringke Onyx

Carbon fiber accents and contrasting textures make this discreet case look bolder and feel better in hand. It also comes in a subdued purple.

Soft fabric sweetness: Google Fabric

Google's fabric cases for the Pixel 2 series were soft, luxurious, and darn near perfect. They're even slimmer this year and come in some fun new colors.

Lithe, luscious leather: Bellroy Leather

Bellroy did a luxurious leather case last year, and this year's case for the Pixel 3 XL is made using "gold-rated LWG tannery leather" with a fine microfiber lining.

$39 at Amazon

Slim dual-layer protection: Spigen Neo Hybrid

With distinct two-tone color schemes and a sophisticated Herringbone texture, the Neo Hybrid will protect your phone in style.

From $15 at Amazon

Getting XL-ent protection

Whether you're after the understated protection of the Spigen Rugged Armor or prefer to show off your Pixel 3 XL's natural beauty with an affordable Totallee Thin Case, there's a case for everyone. For a phone this expensive, you need to protect your investment for sure.

If you prefer a case that offers heavy-duty protection without hiding the Pixel's innate style, grab yourself the Poetic Guardian. Thanks to the wireless charging on the Pixel 3, you can leave the dust flaps in place over the USB-C port and wirelessly charge, keeping your phone protected from dust, dirt, and the ocassional puddle. Just remember: no matter your taste, your phone needs a case!

And if you're upgrading to the Pixel 4 XL, we have a list of the best cases for your new phone.

How to find the best Black Friday deals on Pixel 3 XL cases

All things considered, buying a case for your Pixel 3 XL isn't that big of a decision. Even so, there are some things you should consider before going out and picking up the first case that catches your fancy. There are a few tips we like to offer, but the most important is to get a case that will be able to withstand your daily use. This is a nice way of saying, "If you drop your phone a lot, get a rugged case." A rugged case will likely add some bulk and heft to your phone, but that's better than ending up with something that's completely shattered. It's also worth thinking about what sort of features you want in a case. Some of them have built-in wallets, screen protectors, kickstands, and more. You may end up paying more money for these features, but if you think you'll get a lot of use out of them, they're more than worth a few extra dollars.

For Black Friday 2019, we're still waiting to see what kind of Pixel 3 XL case deals pop up. Google's first-party cases will more than likely get a discount for the holiday season, but the level of that discount remains a mystery. Third-party case makers are a bit trickier to predict, but it's worth keeping your eye on what Spigen, Supcase, Ringke, and others have to offer. There will be deals a plenty, we just aren't sure exactly what's going to be on offer.

As we learn about the best Pixel 3 XL case deals for Black Friday 2019, this guide will be updated accordingly to reflect the best current prices.
