What are the best cases for Nexus 6P?

Picking out a Nexus 6P case for day-to-day use can be challenging. The case needs to be durable and protective enough for your liking without being too thin or overly bulky, the design and colors should speak to your sense of style, and the case's individual, specific features should jump out at you and draw you in.

As you hunt for the perfect Nexus 6P case, here are a couple of options to help you narrow down your list.

MoKo Halo Series

MoKo Halo Series

Lightweight and minimalistic – yet protective – the MoKo Halo Series case for your Nexus 6P is a great option if you're looking for a basic looking, high-quality phone case.

The MoKo comes with cutouts for all ports and buttons, so you won't have to remove the case to adjust your volume or charge your Nexus 6P and risk dropping and shattering your screen. But if you do happen to drop your phone while in the MoKo case, a TPU shock-absorbent layer is designed to absorb the majority of the impact with minimal damage to your phone.

While the front portion of the MoKo is clear — including the raised bezel for edge and screen protection — the back of the case is a sleek, stylish matte black with an anti-slip feel to give your phone more security on surfaces and in your hand.

Lizimandu pattern case

Lizimandu pattern case

Definitely designed for more creative, colorful people, the Nexus 6P pattern case from Lizimandu is a bright and bold alternative to most plain phone cases out there today.

The Lizimandu case isn't particularly known for its overall protection, but the case is designed with a rubber bumper to protect your Nexus 6P from breaking. It also comes with a raised bezel, meaning your screen won't scratch if you lay it down on a flat surface.

The case is snug-fitting, so it won't slide off easily, and is secured with a hyper-vibrant patterned TPU shell. This particular Lizimandu design comes in eight different styles, including an Africa style, blue flower, colorful puzzle, green fragment, marble black, marble white, mystic compass, and white flower.

Nexus 6P Folio

Nexus 6P Folio Case

Available directly from the Google Store, the Nexus 6P Folio offers a stylish and functional option for your Nexus 6P protected. Available in Carbon or Amber, this case features a polycarbonate shell with leather exterior inlay and flap.

Not only will the front flap keep your Nexus 6P screen protected, simply opening the Folio will wake the screen. Close it and the Nexus 6P screen will go to sleep, ensuring you don't waste valuable battery life when you're not looking at your phone. This should help save your battery life as well as make life more convenient. The shell features a raised bezel around the screen for an added layer of drop protection along with large cutouts around all the buttons and ports to help with accessibility.

Also see the regular Nexus 6P case if you're looking for an official, non-folio case that is also of very high quality. It is increasingly difficult to find, however.

Suensan Leather Elegance cover

Suensan Leather Elegance cover

If you're looking for a classic, elegant, high-quality case for your Nexus 6P, then the Suensan Leather Elegance cover is a timeless option to consider.

The outside of the leather case is made from a smooth, thin leather, while the inside lining is soft and gentle to keep your screen free of scratches. With Suensan's design, the case has openings for all ports and buttons, so you won't have to remove your Nexus 6P from its case to charge your phone and run the risk of knocking it off a counter and breaking it.

While the Suensan is a beautiful case for your Nexus 6P, it isn't the most durable, but the case will give you minimal protection in the event of slight drops. On a more stylish note, the case comes in rich brown, black, or deep red leather.

Speck CandyShell Grip

Speck CandyShell Grip

Another great case from a proven accessory manufacturer.

The Speck CandyShell has been military-grade drop tested, so it's not only a neat looking case, it's also pretty durable. A hard outer shell and rubber stripes across the case protect it from high, perilous falls, while a raised bezel prevents scratches from appearing on your screen if you lay it down flat.

The case only comes in two different color combinations, including black and white/black, making it a minimalist, fashionable Nexus 6P accessory.
