Your Google Pixel 4 XL deserves only the best cases

With that fun Soli sensor, a 90Hz screen, and the latest and greatest software goodies from Google, the Pixel 4 XL is a tall drink of awesome. It's also made entirely of glass and metal and needs to be protected at all costs. We've spent hours scouring the internet for the best Pixel 4 XL cases to get for your new Google phone, and these came out on top.

Classic heavy duty

Tudia Merge Series

Staff Pick

Tudia's hybrid case grips your Pixel 4 XL snugly with a TPU sleeve and adds sturdiness with a colorful polycarbonate shell. There are four colors here, but the best is bright blue and warm Rose Gold.

Protect and showcase

Ringke Fusion-X

I love the Fusion-X because it showcases the phone's natural beauty while still giving robust corner and drop protection. The black and camo black options should really pop against the orange Pixel 4 XL.

$12 at Amazon

Ultra-thin durability

Tech21 Studio Colour

Tech21 may be better known for the thicker and clearer Evo Check line. Still, the slimmer Studio Colour line offers the same anti-microbial protection and plant-based materials while offering great protection in a super-slim package.

$30 at Amazon

Crystal clear

Spigen Liquid Crystal

Spigen's clear case is slim, shiny, and perfectly accents the Pixel 4 XL's curves while adding some much-needed grip to this glassy Google beauty. The flexible TPU construction makes it a breeze to get on and off.

Do your part

Pela Eco-Friendly

Phone cases need to be sturdy and stylish, but they don't need to be wasteful. Pela makes cases that are 100% compostable and super-cool. A portion of the Ocean Series case's proceeds is donated to charity.

Forget it's there

Totallee Thin

Totallee's cases are perfect for people who hate cases. They're ridiculously thin, feel great while adding grip, and come in a couple of styles to let you get the feel you prefer: understated black, frosted white, or a squishy clear.

$10 at Amazon

Mesmerizing mosaic

Caseology Parallax

Caseology's hybrid case eschews the solid, boring back for the unique cubist pattern that adds some depth and style to your Pixel 4 XL. I love the fall festival vibe the Burgundy/Rose Gold gives off with the Orange version.

From $8 at Amazon

Fab folio feel

Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet

Snakehive's wallets are a swanky suede European nubuck leather, with three card slots and an extra cash flap behind them. There are five colors available, and Snakehive offers free engraving to personalize yours.

From $37 at Amazon

Hefty protection

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro

This heavy-duty case comes with a kickstand around the back that you can use in portrait or landscape, which is great for power-users like me who prop up their phone for note referencing while working.

$20 at Amazon

Hold on tight

Speck Presidio Grip

Speck's durable case comes in four fun two-tone color schemes that offer up those distinctive grippy grooves across the back and sides while offering antimicrobial properties and 10-foot drop protection.

$6 at Amazon

Leather luxury

Bellroy Leather

Bellroy's cases are lovely and luxurious, which is why Google has partnered with them for leather cases since the original Pixel. Four years later, they're still every bit as wonderful.

$29 at Amazon

Clear protection

ESR Air Armor

ESR's sturdier clear case sports air-cushioned corners to help keep your Pixel 4 XL safe from drops while still showing off that Google-style in full glory without being quite as angular as the Ringke Fusion-X.

$9 at Amazon

Holster included

OtterBox Defender Series

OtterBox is synonymous with heavy-duty cases, and sometimes you do get what you pay for. This can withstand just about anything life throws at you, but you may need to turn up Active Edge sensitivity.

From $11 at Amazon

Defend your Android

Whether you have a Pixel 4 or a Google Pixel 4 XL, Google phones can last a long, long time — the original Pixel got 4 years of OS updates. But that long support life only matters if you keep your Pixel 4 XL safe, and grabbing one of the best Pixel 4 XL cases can help. Safe phones are happy phones, and heavy-duty cases like the affordable Tudia Merge Series can help you ensure that your Pixel 4 XL lasts you as long as possible.

On a clearer note, the Ringke Fusion-X allows me to show off the distinct Google design while also adding some extra edge and style with the colored bumpers. Space Blue will look great with the black and white versions, and the Black and Camo Black will look great with any color Pixel 4 XL. Check out our selection of the best clear cases for the Google Pixel 4 XL for some additional options in transparent cases.

If you prefer not to bulk up your brand-new and already-large phone, the Tech21 Studio Colour has a super-slim profile and offers scratch protection and grip without adding any bulk at all. Despite being an ultra-thin case, the Studio Colour is still rated for drops up to 8 feet — not that I'd want to test that claim — and has anti-microbial protection, which is great for those of us who use our Pixels quite literally everywhere.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases. Jump to: iPad widgets and app drawer Live Text Apple Maps AR navigation iOS notifications New Siri capabilities Apple Photos Bonus: What Google needs to steal iPad widgets and app drawer iPad OS 15 introduced two big new updates for the iPad home screen today: widgets and the App Library.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.

Every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Armor up Ratchet and Rivet before taking down their enemies. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers. The Galactic Rangers' chest armor is forged with justice and Raritarium. The Galactic Rangers' pants protect the galaxy... and your legs
