Google's Pixel phones get updated years longer than most models, so your Pixel 3 can potentially last you a long time, but only if you keep it protected and intact. We've rounded up some of the best heavy duty cases available for the Pixel 3, from perennial favorites to more wallet-friendly options from other trusted brands we like. We're sure you'll find a case that speaks to you and your needs.

Again, picking a heavy-duty case is about finding long-lasting case in a style that you enjoy — after all, this is the case you're going to be holding in your hand and feeling in your pocket for the next 2-3 years. Some heavy-duty cases are thicker than others (coughOtterBoxcough), but most of the entries on this list strike a good balance between protection and portability.

If you're also interested in adding a screen protector to your phone, the Poetic Revolution (opens in new tab) is worth considering, but my recommendation goes to the Spigen Tough Armor (opens in new tab). Spigen's products are always top quality and the Tough Armor style, in particular, is a reliably rugged option for any smartphone.
