What to look for in the best Google Pixel 7 Pro case
Why you can trust Tom's Guide
When selecting the best Pixel 7 Pro case to fit your lifestyle, make sure the case you buy is actually made for the Pixel 7 Pro. The best Pixel 6 Pro cases are unlikely to fit the Pixel 7 Pro perfectly, and the best Pixel 7 Pro cases certainly won’t, as the Pixel 7 has a smaller screen than the Pro model.
After confirming you’re looking at cases that will snuggly fit your phone, here are a few other factors to consider when searching for the best Google Pixel 7 Pro case.
Build materials and drop protection: Whether the case is made out of silicone, aluminum, polycarbonate or rubber, look for a good drop rating to keep your Pixel 7 Pro protected. Some phone cases are only meant to withstand drops of a few feet high, while more hardcore competitors have a MIL-STD-810G-tested rating of 10 feet or more.
Color/design options: Some phone cases only offer one or two color choices, but the fashion-forward ones take add 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 Pro cases with various green initiatives; many brands use recycled plastics to get the job done, and every little bit helps.
