Show off your Pixel 3 while keeping it safe with a clear case

by John_A

The Google Pixel 3 is a beautifully crafted phone with a thin profile and an iconic look. It’s only natural you’d want to show that off, but the Pixel 3 is also a phone with a glass back and a very high price tag, so you should really, really get a case on it. Thankfully, clear cases can keep your phone safe while showing it off for all the world to see.

Crystal clear choice

Spigen Liquid Crystal


$15 at Amazon

Eschewing bulkier hard-plastic backs, the Liquid Crystal’s flexible TPU is easy to apply and easier to grip. This crystal clear case gives your Google Pixel 3 light protection that is as thin as it is beautiful.

A clear deal

MoKo Clear Case


If you want to show off your new Pixel 3, MoKo’s clear case is for you. Its soft TPU material that adds grip without covering up the Pixel 3’s beauty and precise cutouts ensure it doesn’t get in the way of the charging port, camera, and speakers.

Translucent treat

Cimo Slim Grip


$8 at Amazon

Clear cases can be boring. Cimo knows that you want to show off your Pixel 3, but show some personality, too. Its Slim Grip’s translucence lets your Pixel’s design shine through blue or purple — or clear if you want to be plain. What? No, I’m not judging you.

Crystal-clear drop-protection

Tech21 Evo Check


$40 at Google Store

Some people have a tendency to drop their phones. It’s just a fact of life, and knowing this, Google partnered with impact masters Tech21 for the Evo Check Pixel 3 case. It’s rated to keep your phone safe from repeated 12-foot drops and does so without adding any unnecessary bulk.

Smooth operator

Caseology Waterfall


$13 at Amazon

Caseology is one of the most trusted casemakers around, and the detailed quality they bring to cases like the Waterfall keep us coming back year after year. The back corners of the Waterfall have almost invisible bumpers to help keep the hard acrylic back from scratching on dirty desktops.

Unique design

Ringke Fusion-X

$10 at Amazon

Sturdy impact resistant bumpers safeguard against unwanted drops and bumps, and while the more subtle black is a solid choice, the translucent Ruby Red gives the Pixel 3 a bold and dangerous gleam. Ringke also adds anchor points to the Fusion X so you can attach it to a wrist strap or lanyard.

Ghost case

ESR Essential Zero case


“Zero” is an apt name for this incredibly thin clear case. It’s made of flexible TPU rubber and is only 1 millimeter thick at its thinnest point. There are raised edges around the camera and screen to protect each from scratches, and there’s a “microdot” pattern on the inside of the back to prevent that wet, clingy look.

$13 at Amazon

Dual-layer design

Speck Presidio


If you’re looking for a little more protection and don’t mind a smidgen of bulk, the Speck Presidio features a flexible TPU interior and a hard plastic outer shell for extra drop and scratch protection. The outside is also coated to prevent fingerprints and discoloration.

$40 at Best Buy

Bonus kickstand

Spigen Ultra Hybrid S


Spigen’s clear Ultra Hybrid S features a built-in metal kickstand, which isn’t incredibly sturdy, but it’ll do in a pinch. The fit of the case is excellent, offering great tactile feedback on the button covers, and a raised lip around the camera and screen to protect the glass from scratches.

$14 at Amazon

Barely there

totallee Thin Pixel 3 Case


If you’re only looking for scratch protection, then check out totallee’s incredibly thin case, which has a frosted, translucent finish, which is matte and grippy. It’s prefect if you like to keep your phone in your pocket.

$28 at Amazon

For my money, I’d just as soon get a clear case that has some color to it, like the Cimo Slim Grip, because colored clear cases tend to have less discoloration and yellowing over time than traditional crystal-clear cases. Add some color and some serious protection with the Tech21 Evo Check; it may be the most expensive case on this list, but if you’re hard on your phones, it’ll be more than worth it.
