Best Leather Cases for Google Pixel

Slapping a case on your Google Pixel is always a smart idea to protect it from general wear as well as any accidental drops. But not everyone likes the plastic brick look that most cases offer.

Fortunately, you do have more stylish options. Whether you're looking for a functional wallet case or just prefer a more premium look for your phone, check out these great leather cases for your phone.

BELK Retro Slim Wallet Case

This stylish folio case lets you keep your phone, cards, and cash all in one place making it ideal for a night on the town or travelling. Your phone is kept secure and protected by the flexible TPU sleeve built into the interior of the phone, and stitched into the faux leather exterior.

There's ample cutouts for the ports, speaker and fingerprint scanner, although the cutout around the camera seems slightly too small and might make an appearance in your photos or videos. This might be a deal breaker for some. There's a magnetic clasp that keeps the front flap closed when in your pocket, which also folds over to double as a kickstand for hands-free media viewing. There are six different color options available, so you can find the case that best fits your style.

LK Luxury PU Leather Wallet Case

This wallet case option features a front cover with three card slots (including a see-through slot for your ID) as well as a pocket for some cash. It's not real leather — if the budget price wasn't a dead giveaway — but it does come in four bold color options to choose from.

This case also might be susceptible to the same flaw for photography as the BELK case — which seems to be a common issue with wallet cases for the Pixel in general. Other than that, you'll get a secure fit for your phone and ample cutouts for your phone's ports and the fingerprint scanner on the back.

X-Level PU Leather Luxury Back Cover

This bumper case provides adequate protection, though it does leave the bottom of your phone wide open. It's available in black, brown or pink-colored synthetic leather.

It's a very sleek option that keeps your Pixel's profile slim while providing a premium leather look and feel.

  • I really like the look of leather cases and have had a hand-made one on my m8 for most of the 2 1/2 years I've owned it. I just wanted to point out something to keep in mind when buying real leather. The oils on the leather will get on your screen when you close it and you will have to clean your screen quite often. That's the trade off, but I am willing to pay it for a beautiful case and the character that leather builds over time. It has offered excellent protection also since my phone has been dropped a few times and still looks pristine to this day.
  • How are PU cases in a post titled "Best Leather Cases"? This selection if horrible. Maybe if Google could produce more than 18 a week somebody would make a proper case.
