We can help you find the right options for keeping your Pixel 7 safe and sound. From ultra-slim cases that are easy to slip in your pocket to eco-friendly cases that are less taxing on the environment, we’ve scoured the web for the best Google Pixel 7 cases to fit every lifestyle and budget. Our current top pick is the Spigen Tough Armor Case, with oodles of protective design features, but it's far from the only option.

What to look for in the best Google Pixel 7 case

Why you can trust Tom's Guide Our writers and editors spend hours analyzing and reviewing products, services, and apps to help find what's best for you. Find out more about how we test, analyze, and rate.

When it comes to choosing the best Google Pixel 7 case to fit your lifestyle, make sure the one you buy is actually made for the Pixel 7. It sounds obvious, but accidentally procuring a case for the larger Pixel 7 Pro is simple enough if you’re not paying attention during checkout. (Our Pixel 7 vs. Pixel 7 Pro face-off goes into the differences between these two models.) You’ll also want to avoid Pixel 6 cases as a Pixel 7 vs. Pixel 6 comparison reveals slight differences between this year’s phone and last year’s model, not the least of which is a slightly smaller screen.

Here are some other factors to consider when shopping for a Pixel 7 case.

Build materials and drop protection: From silicone to aluminum to polycarbonate to rubber, look for a good drop-test rating to keep your Pixel 7 protected. Some phone cases are only meant to withstand accidental impacts from a few feet high, while more hardcore competitors have MIL-STD-810G ratings of 10 feet or more.  

Color/design options: Some brands only offer one or two color choices, but the fashion-forward ones take more chances in this department, adding blended colors, textured designs and customized skins to the mix. 

Environmental impact: We humans can always tread lighter when it comes to our collective effect on the environment, and if future-proofing planet Earth is on your to-do list, look for Pixel 7 cases with various green initiatives; many brands increasingly turn to recycled plastics to get the job done.

How we pick the best Pixel 7 cases

As a starting point, we look for Pixel 7 cases based on word-of-mouth and customer reviews. In some instances, we may call in cases for additional hands-on testing. When evaluating each model, we consider color choices, overall protection and special features. Because phone cases are such a personal choice, we also strive to include a variety of styles to fit different tastes — and budgets.
