Ruggedly handsome: Spigen Rugged ArmorStaff pick
Spigen's Rugged Armor has been one of our go-to cases for years: it feels great in hand and protects your phone as well as many dual-layer cases would.
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.
Armored protection: Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro
This multi-layer case has all the bells and whistles, from a built-in screen protector to dual-layer construction to an included belt clip.
It's, like, totally invisible!: Totallee Thin
If you want as little bulk as possible, this Totallee case is totally for you! The glossy model is a slightly softer case than the frosted versions.
Heavy duty & crystal clear: Poetic Guardian
With vivid color accents, a built-in screen protector, and a rubberized USB-C dust-blocking flap, the Poetic Guardian lives up to its sturdy name.
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.
Ruggedly handsome: UAG Monarch Series
Featuring leather panels protected by an "Armor Frame" and compatible with wireless charging, this should be the only case your Pixel 3 XL ever needs.
Crystal clear: Spigen Liquid Crystal
Eschewing hard polycarbonate backs that tend to produce oily rainbows, the Liquid Crystal's flexible TPU is easy to apply and more comfortable to grip.
Classy wallet case: Maxboost mWallet
This wallet case has white stitching to contrast the black faux-leather, features a triangular magnetic clasp, and the cover folds back into a kickstand.
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.
Name-brand protection: OtterBox Symmetry Series
OtterBox has become the Kleenex of heavy-duty phone cases, and it offers a wide array of color options for the Pixel 3 XL, but my favorites are the Stardust and the Tonic Violet.
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.
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!
