Get started on your Pixel 6 journey with one of these cases

The regular Pixel 6 was the only one to get actual color options and not just metallic shades, and we deserve to flaunt those fun colors and bold accents around that eye-catching camera bar stretching across the back. This is one of the best Android phones with half a decade of updates ahead of it, and if you want your new phone to last that long, you need to grab one of the best Pixel 6 cases you can.

Come to the dark side

Caseology Parallax for Google Pixel 6

Staff Pick

While not many cases yet highlight that pop of red at the top of the Kinda Coral Pixel 6, Caseology leaped right in. So whether you're tracking rebel scum across the galaxy or lording over your domain, the Parallax will help you keep an iron grip upon your Pixel 6, thanks to the new diamond grip pads along the bumper.

Be still, my blue heart

Bellroy Leather Case for Pixel 6

We might not be getting a fabric case for the Pixel 6 this year, but at least Bellroy is back with another round of beautiful leather cases in some breathtaking colors. While the classic Terracotta is well-tinted, the Sea Mint is wonderfully matched to the Sorta Seafoam, and then there's a stunning Cobalt reminiscent of the Pixel 1.

Show off

Ringke Fusion Compatible with Google Pixel 6

Ringke offers its clear (and clearly durable) Pixel 6 case in two variants. The completely Transparent version reflects more light and lets the full detailing on your Pixel 6 shine through. While it's not available quite yet, there's also a Matte variant that will give you the same frosty look like the official Google case without being as expensive (or as slippery).

Kickstands kick butt

Poetic Revolution

The Revolution is already a heavy-duty case with heavy-duty thickness, but Poetic makes excellent use of it by adding a kickstand that works both vertically and horizontally. The front frame of the case includes a built-in screen protector that should work with Google's in-screen fingerprint sensor, and should you scratch that screen protector somehow, there's a spare front frame in the box.

All the color options

kwmobile Soft Slim

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: life's too short for boring cases. kwmobile lets you pick from over a dozen colors to get exactly the hue to match your wardrobe, your purse, or your favorite team. If only they sold matching smartwatch bands to go with them, they'd be perfect.

Grip and go

Spigen Liquird Air Armor for Google Pixel 6

While Spigen is better known for the Rugged Armor and Tough Armor cases, its best option is the Liquid Air Armor. The texture has more grip than the Rugged and Thin Fit, but it's still slim, works with stick-on grips or card slots, and it's snug but easy to get on and off if you want to hide some cash or an ID inside.

$16 at Amazon

Tough and translucent

Ghostek Covert

This clear case is the ultimate antithesis of Google's first-party transparent case: it's rugged, re-inforced in the corners, and heavily protects both the screen and camera module. The corners are lined with impact-absorbing gel, and the red matches well with the Kinda Coral colorway. The Sorta Pink also amplifies the Coral's feminine hues, but Cloudy Clear is the clear favorite.

Ruggedly handsome

VRS DESIGN Damda Glide Pro

Card slot cases and even folio cases usually only have room for two (maybe three) cards, but VRS's heavy-duty case has room for four cards. The steel accents around the slide mechanism add a nice contrast and help with the case's drop protection, ensuring that even if your case takes a bad fall, your cards won't get trapped inside.

$22 at Amazon

Sage design and shades

Caseology Vault for Google Pixel 6

Are you going to miss the Sorta Sage Pixel 5? No worries, Caseology brings that color along to the Pixel 6 in its slim, grip-friendly Vault case. The texture across the back is wonderfully plush, almost pleather, and the case adds a raised ridge or protection around that bold new camera bar to keep it safe and stable when it's flat on a table.

$13 at Amazon

Stylish yet secure

iBlason Cosmo Series

Heavy-duty cases usually only come in two flavors: boring and macho. i-Blason bucks that trend with the Cosmo Series. This two-piece case includes a built-in screen protector in the front frame, and the back is covered with a beautiful pink/white or blue/green marble tiling with gold accents. The bump around the camera is there, but the pattern helps it blend in better.

$22 at Amazon $22 at Walmart $25 at i-Blason

Affordable protection

Foluu Liquid Silicone

Foluu may not be a name you're familiar with, but the cases it makes punch above their budget. A nice high bumper protects that thick camera bump, and the cool color options help the Pixel 6 stay understated. That way, your new flagship doesn't catch too many wandering eyes until you start snapping pictures with it.

$8 at Amazon

You'll forget it's there

Aeska Slim Thin

This clear case isn't as reinforced as the Spigen, but it is slimmer and more affordable. This means that you get the added grip and scratch protection while showing off that cool colorway. However, you shouldn't expect it to survive any significant drop unscathed, as thinner cases mean there's less mass to absorb and redirect the energy of a fall.

$10 at Amazon

Always a classic

Spigen Rugged Armor for Google Pixel 6

One of Spigen's oldest case styles, the Rugged Armor remains popular year after year for one reason: consistency! While details around the camera change — especially for the Pixel 6's camera bar — the smooth back and just enough grip on the sides keep it in your hand and off the concrete.

$16 at Amazon

Floral and fun

Kate Spade New York Defensive Hardshell

Most colorways of Pixel 6 cases are either designed with one phone color in mind or none at all, but Kate Spade managed to make a light floral that works for both. The soft cream yellow petals complement the Sorta Seaform, while the stigma and stamen in the middle work well with the Kinda Coral. Made by Incipio, this case is as durable as it is stylish.

$40 at Incipio

Carry it all

Foluu Canvas Flip Wallet

Our phones are already our digital lifelines, so you might as well slip your cards in and just carry one thing rather than two. Foluu's folio won't break your budget and also doubles as a kickstand. Magnetic clasps keep everything in place, and there are three card slots in addition to the cash flap, ensuring you can keep everything together neatly.

From $10 at Amazon

The best Pixel 6 cases focus on the camera

The Pixel 6's camera bar may look a little bit Cylon — especially with that bright red accent on the Kinda Coral — but that camera bar also makes it easier to help tell durable from thin cases and help separate the good from the bad.

For instance, the Caseology Parallax has a thicker bumper around the camera module and a thicker raised lip around the cameras themselves. It completely covers the sides and the sharp top/bottom edges so that the camera module won't catch on an edge and break during a fall. By contrast, Google's official, transparent Google Pixel 6 Case also has a lip on the top and bottom edges, but Google preserves the sharp look and leaves the sides of the camera bar exposed.

Google's case is more true to the Pixel 6's style, but Caseology's offers more protection. Other cases split the difference with a raised lip around the entire edge, but no sloped curves, as we see on the thin and well-textured Spigen Liquid Air Armor. And, of course, heavy-duty cases are thicker on the back, so the camera bump doesn't seem any thicker than other phones. It's all a matter of which style and level of protection suits you.

Some case makers are still finalizing their Pixel 6 cases, so we'll be on the lookout for more as they become available, but we've already got a fine array thanks to the early arrivals of many name-brand cases. Between that blue-green Cosmo Series, myriad-colored Soft Slim, and the tall, dark, and handsome Parallax, there's plenty of ways to jazz up your colorful new Pixel 6.

Oh, and if you're wondering where Google's first-party case is, well, the texture experience doesn't quite match up with its high price tag, so it's not making the list this year. You can get better clear cases — matte or transparent — for half the price, so the only compelling reason left to buy it would be if you want that soft glowing pink. If you're after that, I recommend checking out a brand called Ghostek; pink is one of their steadfast colors.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://

HBO just canceled this comedy, despite its 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating

HBO has canceled animated comedy after three seasons.  Close Enough was created by JG Quintel, the man behind cult comedy Regular Show, who also topped the bill of voice actors, which included Gabrielle Walsh, Jason Mantzoukas, Kimiko Glenn, Jessica DiCicco, James Adomian and Danielle Brooks. Close Enough followed Josh and Emily – and their young daughter Candice – a couple in their late 30s, who live in a Los Angeles duplex with their divorced friends, Alex and Bridgette. The show chronicled their lives as they dealt with everyday challenges, with things frequently taking surreal and sci-fi style turns.  Originally intended to air on TBS in 2017, after a series of delays, the show debuted on HBO Max in 2020. Three seasons of eight episodes each have been broadcast, with the most recent season coming to a close in early April of 2022.  The show has featured a number of high-profile guest stars during its run, including the likes of Jane Lynch, Henry Winkler, "Weird Al"
