Best Thin Cases for Google Pixel 3 Android Central 2020
Google made the Pixel 3 beautifully thin, but unfortunately, it also made the Pixel 3 a glass-backed phone, and glass-backed phones need cases before they face the concrete jungles of the real world. Nobody likes a clunky tank of a case, but you can protect your phone without losing that thin feel. There are many cases on the market for the Pixel 3 that are so thin, you'll forget you have a case!
- Like totally perfect: Totallee Case
- Lightweight companion: Spigen Thin Fit
- Flexible fit: X-Level Guardian Series
- Matte magic: Avalri Ultra Thin
- Crystal clear: Spigen Liquid Crystal
- Liquid skin: ESR Essential Zero Case
It doesn't get much thinner than Totallee, a casemaker that is 110% about making phone cases so thin you'll forget you even have a case on. This 0.02-inch case comes in three styles: Frosted Clear, Solid Black, and a softer Glossy Clear, and each one is totally worth the price.
It's right there in the name: Spigen Thin Fit case. This aptly-named case offers corner protection and just enough lip around the camera and screen to help avoid scratches and scuffs. Just keep in mind that the top and bottom of the case are open and exposed.
This is one of the thinner TPU cases you'll come across for the Pixel series, available in Black or Wine Red. This case will be far easier to get on and off than other polycarbonate thin cases; just make sure you pick up the Pixel 3 version.
This hardshell case wraps around the back and corners of your Google Pixel 3, giving some scuff and scratch protection without any bulk at all. Avalri's ultra-thin case is just 0.03 inches in thickness and comes in one of five beautiful colors.
Eschewing bulkier hard-plastic backs, the Liquid Crystal's flexible TPU is easy to apply and easier to grip. This crystal clear case gives your Google Pixel 3 light protection that is as thin as it is beautiful.
Like it's not even there
Again, we've loved Totallee cases for as long as it's been making cases for Android phones because these cases are ridiculously thin, are perfectly sculpted for the Pixel's curves, and feature no branding whatsover. Most of the time from a distance, it doesn't really look like you have a case on at all.
Totallee is pretty proud of its products and the price tags show that, but you can still get a good thin case without breaking the bank. The X-Level Guardian can be slipped on and off easily thanks to its flexible TPU design, which will also hold up better long-term than hard-shell thin cases. Hard cases can be thinner than TPU, but that also makes them more fragile, and a fragile case doesn't really protect your phone well.
