Best Leather Cases for the Google Pixel 3 XL Android Central 2021
Even if you've made peace with the notch, adding another dash of sophistication and elegance to your Google Pixel 3 XL may make you forget about it altogether. Plus, the added protection of a leather case means your phone may last until Google decides to release a notchless XL model again. These are the best leather cases for the Pixel 3 XL.
- Premium perfection: Bellroy Leather
- European leather: Snakehive Leather Folio
- Distinct hybrid: Ghostek Exec
- Elegant and affordable: Maxboost mWallet
- Thin and lovely: Totallee Leather
- Minimal wallet: ProCase Leather Wallet
Premium perfection: Bellroy LeatherStaff pick
A purveyor of fine leather goods, Bellroy has partnered with Google to create luxurious cases for each generation of Pixels, and the Pixel 3 XL is no exception. Available in five colors and two styles, these cases are every bit as refined as the Google flagships they cover.
European leather: Snakehive Leather Folio
London-based Snakehive created some super-sweet feeling leather cases in a variety of colors, and its case for the Pixel 3 XL feels soft and velvety in the hand. This case is a delight to hold and for a genuine European nubuck leather case, it's quite well-priced.
Distinct hybrid: Ghostek Exec
This leather wallet case isn't your normal folio, but I kinda like this better. The leather pouch can fit up to 5 cards or a nice wad of cash, it has a plate built-in for use with a magnetic car mount, and the leather/fabric contrast works so well.
Elegant and affordable: Maxboost mWallet
This wallet case has bright white stitching, which is a great contrast against the black faux-leather. It also features a triangular magnetic closer, and the cover folds back into a steady kickstand. There's space for three cards, as well as a cash pocket inside.
Thin and lovely: Totallee Leather
Want a leather case that's also thin as it can possibly be? Totallee knows its way around a thin case and its model for the Pixel 3 XL comes in a Leather option that's perfect for your phone.
Minimal wallet: ProCase Leather Wallet
ProCase's genuine leather wallet is an excellent option, with three gorgeous colors to choose from, room for two cards, a cash slot, and a front cover that folds into a kickstand. The cover features a magnetic closure, though without a clasp, making it seamless.
A premium case for a premium phone
A leather case is a great way to add some much-needed protection to your Pixel 3 XL, and it serves as a note of elegance and sophistication that complements your hardware nicely. For my money, the Bellroy Leather Pixel Case is the best option, because it has superb color options and a gorgeous design, I mean just look at that navy blue! The Coral is also a fun shade.
If you prefer your leather cases with some added functionality, the Maxboost mWallet is an affordable leather folio that lets you consolidate what you carry. I rather like the Ghostek Exec and its leather card slot, too. The metal plate interferes with wireless charging, but let's face it, even if you took the cards out to charge, it'd still probably be too thick to support that, anyway.
