Classic heavy duty: Tudia Merge SeriesStaff pick
Tudia's hybrid case grips your Pixel 4 XL snugly with a TPU sleeve and adds sturdiness with a colorful polycarbonate shell. There are four colors here, but the best of them are the bright blue and warm Rose Gold.
Protect and showcase: Ringke Fusion-X
I love the Fusion-X because it showcases the phone's natural beauty while still giving robust corner and drop protection. The black and camo black options should really pop against the orange Pixel 4 XL.
Ultra-thin durability: Tech21 Studio Colour
Tech21 may be better known for the thicker and clearer Evo Check line, but the slimmer Studio Colour line offers the same anti-microbial protection and plant-based materials while offering great protection in a super-slim package.
Crystal clear: Spigen Liquid Crystal
Spigen's clear case is slim, shiny, and perfectly accents the Pixel 4 XL's curves while adding some much-needed grip to this glassy Google beauty. The flexible TPU construction makes it a breeze to get on and off.
Do your part: Pela Eco-Friendly
Phone cases need to be sturdy and stylish, but they don't need to be wasteful. Pela makes cases that are 100% compostable and super-cool. A portion of the Ocean Series case's proceeds is donated to charity.
Forget it's there: Totallee Thin
Totallee's cases are perfect for people who hate cases. They're ridiculously thin, feel great while adding grip, and come in a couple of styles to let you get the feel you prefer: understated black, frosted white, or a squishy clear.
Mesmerizing mosaic: Caseology Parallax
Caseology's hybrid case eschews the solid, boring back for the unique cubist pattern that adds some depth and style to your Pixel 4 XL. I love the fall festival vibe the Burgundy/Rose Gold gives off with the Orange version.
Fab folio feel: Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet
Snakehive's wallets are a swanky suede European nubuck leather, with three card slots and an extra cash flap behind them. There are five colors available, and Snakehive offers free engraving to personalize yours.
Hefty protection: Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro
This heavy-duty case comes with a kickstand around back that you can use in portrait or landscape, which is great for power-users like me who prop up their phone for note referencing while working.
Hold on tight: Speck Presidio Grip
Speck's durable case comes in four fun two-tone color schemes that offer up those distinctive grippy grooves across the back and sides while also offering antimicrobial properties and 10-foot drop protection.
Leather luxury: Bellroy Leather
Bellroy's cases are lovely and luxurious, which is why Google has partnered with them for leather cases since the original Pixel. Four years later, they're still every bit as wonderful.
Clear protection: ESR Air Armor
ESR's sturdier clear case sports air-cushioned corners to help keep your Pixel 4 XL safe from drops while still showing off that Google style in full glory without being quite as angular as the Ringke Fusion-X.
Holster included: OtterBox Defender Series
OtterBox is synonymous with heavy-duty cases, and sometimes you do get what you pay for. This can withstand just about anything life throws at you, but you may need to turn up Active Edge sensitivity.
Make it personal: Skinit Custom Clear Cases
Get customized cases from Skinit with designs from Disney, DC, sports teams, anime shows and if none of those strike your fancy, you can always upload a picture for a one-of-a-kind case.
Defend your Android
Whether you have a Pixel 4 or 4 XL, Google phones can last a long, long time — the original Pixel got 4 years of OS updates — but that long support life only matters if you keep your Pixel 4 XL safe. Safe phones are happy phones, and heavy-duty cases like the affordable Tudia Merge Series can help you ensure that your Pixel 4 XL lasts you as long as possible.
On a clearer note, the Ringke Fusion-X allows me to show off the distinct Google design while also adding some extra edge and style with the colored bumpers. Space Blue will look great with the black and white versions, and the Black and Camo Black will look great with any color Pixel 4 XL.
If you prefer not to bulk up your brand-new and already-large phone, the Tech21 Studio Colour and its super-slim profile offer scratch protection and grip without adding any bulk at all. Despite being an ultra-thin case, the Studio Colour is still rated for drops up to 8 feet — not that I'd want to test that claim — and has anti-microbial protection, which is great for those of us who use our Pixels quite literally everywhere.
