Best Google Pixel 5 Accessories 2020
The Google Pixel 5 is one of the best Android phones. It's a stylish phone that can stand on its own, especially with that supremely suave Sorta Sage color and best-in-class photography. Because of these reasons, it deserves only the best accessories to keep it pristine and powered. From wireless chargers that beat Google's own, to cases and headphones, we've gathered the best Pixel 5 accessories your phone deserves.
Safe and stylish
This mesmerizing case has protected my last two Pixels with grace, and the colorways for the Pixel 5 are quite fetching. The Aqua Green will fit the green Pixel 5 perfectly while Burgundy and Navy Blue jazz up the black Pixel 5.
Fun, fashionable feel
This is the iconic case series we see from Google each year, and this year the fabric cases are made of recycled plastic and polyester. The result is a soft, vibrant case that's machine-washable and microfiber-lined.
Cover your glass
Nothing will transform a phone into a paperweight faster than a broken screen, so guard yours with the extra impact protection of tempered glass. The pocketbook application process is also super simple.
Just drop and charge
Belkin's fast chargers have been some of the most consistent for the Pixel 5, and unlike the Pixel Stand, this one will charge at 15W and won't show every little speck of dust and dirt. It's also more reasonably priced.
Keep a spare
Not only do you get nice long, cables that are rated to charge laptops, much less your wonderful new Pixel 5, but you get two of them! One can live your backpack while the other hangs off your nightstand.
Not only does Anker make some of the most dependable power banks on the market, but they make a beautiful green one that perfectly complements the Sorta Sage Pixel 5. Power Delivery means you'll get top speed, too.
Teeny tiny power
This charger has the smallest footprint I've seen for an 18-20W charger so far, giving you the top charging speed for your Pixel 5 while not taking up much room on your surge protector or in your gear bag.
Road trip ready
This will only charge at 10W, not 15W, but iOttie's mount is sturdy, long-lasting, and we know it works with the Pixel 5. Just as a gentle reminder when you're taking long road trips, be wary of heat buildup.
Pixel perfect pair
Google's true wireless earbuds are expensive, to be sure, but they offer up amazing sound, comfort, and fit. Top that off with auto-adjusting volume that works surprisingly well and Assistant integration is on-point.
Beefy battery and sound
Anker manages to cram in a hefty amount of battery life in the Soundcore Life Q30, and both the sound quality and the active noise canceling are improved. The headphones themselves also have a more polished feel.
Grip and go
My little sister, like me, can be a bit prickly towards others at times, and this PopSocket is both a proud statement and a warning to all who approach: Swim at your own risk because if you cross us, we BITE!
Your cute companion
There are tripods in every shape and size available, but why not get something that's cutely squishable and long-lasting? There are almost a dozen colors available, and most will play nice with the Sorta Sage Pixel 5.

There are a great many things your Pixel needs and quite frankly deserves if you're going to use it to the fullest, but first and foremost forever is buy it one of the best Pixel 5 cases you can. I'm partial to the Caseology Parallax (opens in new tab) for its bold color options — including a stunning Aqua Green to complement the Sorta Sage Pixel 5 — and the added grip. Of course, if you're anything like me, you're also going to need a PopSocket (opens in new tab), too, and even with the texturing on the back of the Parallax, a PopSocket still sticks to it easily.
After guarding the outside, you need to power the inside, since after all, a dead phone is just a paperweight. There are a handful of great wireless chargers that we know work with the Pixel 5, but the Belkin BoostCharge 15W Wireless Charging Stand (opens in new tab) is a cross-platform, more affordable, and more powerful version of the Pixel Stand, so it's the wireless charger you should give your money to. It even works with Power Delivery, meaning that you don't have to dig out an older Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0 wall plug.
