Best wallet cases for Google Pixel 6 in 2022

While many miss having a rear fingerprint on the Google Pixel 6, replacing it with an in-screen sensor doubled the real estate open for card slots and wallet flaps. This means that Pixel 6 wallet cases can be ten times better than in previous years when we were stuck with folios or ridiculously cramped card slots, and these are the best ones you can buy today.

Why card slots reign supreme among Pixel 6 wallet cases

While folios are the usual wallet case we'd come across, Google positioned the volume rocker too close to dead-center on the right bumper. This means most folios have an unfortunate defect: any centered folio flap covers the volume down button and possibly the volume up button as well. If you still want a folio, it shouldn't interfere with your music while the case is in your purse, but you'll have to open it up to turn down the music.

That said, card slot cases are neater and offer more possibilities overall for a Pixel 6 wallet case, especially now that we don't have a rear fingerprint sensor making card placement difficult. The VRS Damda Glide Pro is rugged and durable while the Ghostek's removable wallet is distinct and easy to use separately or together, and the colors for the Teelevo bost a cool variety.

If these wallet cases aren't buying your heart, you might be better off buying a slim elastic wallet and grabbing one of the best regular Pixel 6 cases instead. I've used an elastic wallet for over half a decade because they're super small, last half a decade easily, and fit into small pockets and purses much more easily than your grandpa's sweaty old trifold.
