The best Google Pixel 6 Pro cases are likely the first thing you'll be looking to get after buying your new Google phone, and you'd be smart to do so.

The Pixel 6 Pro's unique design, with the big horizontal camera bar, looks distinct even in a case, but picking your favorite case design can still add some of your own style to your phone. It'll keep it safe too of course. Even with the Pixel 7 due to arrive soon, there's no sense in putting your current and fully functional Pixel at risk of damage.

Just watch out if you've yet to buy your Pixel 6 Pro though. Google's about to introduce the Pixel 7 series, including a new Pixel 7 Pro. It's worth considering holding fire until after it arrives, so you can see which phone you'd prefer, and therefore which case you'll need.

How to choose the best Google Pixel 6 Pro case for you

When choosing the best Google Pixel 6 Pro case, you'll need to make an important decision: do you care more about how protected your phone will be or what it looks like? It's a good idea to grab a case that will keep your phone from being smudged or scratched from unexpected drops. On the other hand, you could  opt for the best-looking case that makes your phone look and feel like more of an extension of you and your personality. It doesn't matter what you choose, as long as it meets all your expectations. 

With that in mind, you can't just shell out for the most expensive case and expect that it'll make you the happiest. Look for the case with the features that matter the most for you, and don't discount the cheaper finds, which quite often can make for fantastic options. 

Just make sure you buy a case that fits the right phone — the Pixel 6 Pro is larger than the standard Google Pixel 6, so you’ll need a case specifically designed to fit the dimensions of your phone. And if you do want an accessory for the 6.4-inch Pixel, we’ve got picks for the best Google Pixel 6 cases, too.

How we test the best Google Pixel 6 Pro cases

Picking which Pixel 6 Pro cases make it onto our list comes down to two things: our own tests, and what the public has said.

Our own tests involve using the case with one of our Pixel 6 Pro handsets for a few days, checking the comfort and how well any special features operate. We don't do drop tests though, so any claims about durability come from the manufacturer and should be treated with healthy scepticism.

We also look at reviews of these cases written by average users on retailer websites where we've not been able to sample the case ourselves yet. While it's not the same as first-hand experience, we believe our research will still lead you to making the right pick for your Pixel 6 Pro.

Just remember to keep an eye out on Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro news in the next few days though. You may decide to upgrade or go for a Pixel phone other than the Pixel 6 Pro, in which case let's hope all the cases we've recommended above will get updates for the new generation.
