    Grippy, protective, snazzy, and unique

    The fabric cases by Google are easily the best cases I've ever had on any phone. In the past I've used Otterbox, Tech21, Speck, Insignia, Platinum, Samsung, Apple. and many other small name brand cases for my smart phones over the years. But these cases give me everything I look for in a case with a unique material choice that is both visually appealing, and practical as far as being protective and easy to hold. The cases by Google are very low profile, hardly adding any bulk to my Pixel 2 XL, and yet provide excellent protection for my phone. I've dropped my phone in the case several times on hard wood floors and on cement and the case has performed beautifully. At first glance I thought that the fabric would be an annoying material choice for a phone but after using mine for the last two months I couldn't imagine a more ideal case. The fabric design is very easy to hold and never slips out of my hands or off my desk surface. If you're a fan of a thinner case for your phone and are open to trying out the fabric design, this is the case for you. It's a solid $20 cheaper than the bulky cases you'll find with Otterbox and protects your phone just as well.

    The fabric cases from Google are hands down the best cases I've ever had on any of my smartphones. This is the second color I've purchased and I love everything about it. The fabric cases provide a unique fabric material design that offers a different kind of grippy security. They are very low profile cases that don't add much bulk to the Pixel 2 XL like an Otterbox or Speck case would. But, having said that it is thinner, it does not sacrifice protection quality. I've dropped my phone inside the Carbon colored case several times on hard wood floors as well as on concrete and my phone has been perfectly fine over the past two months. If you're looking for a thin, protective, and easy to hold case, these fabric cases are for you. They are easily interchangeable and are a solid $20 cheaper than a bulky Otterbox. Pay no attention to the poorly rated reviews. It seems like the majority of them are rated poorly because Best Buy has the case listed for the Google Pixel XL instead of the Pixel 2 XL. Hopefully that will be updated promptly to avoid any further bad reviews because these cases are amazing!

    Protection for a great phone

    I normally try to install tempered glass on my phones but with these phones going more and more to a rounded edge, the glass isn't the best idea. So with that, I decided on this standard HD screen protector. Absolutely zero issues with the installation. I know its an intimidating process for some but follow these steps: 1. Read the directions. That's it! It also helps to make sure you have no fans or near nay air circulating so it prevents dust and whatnot from creeping under the film as you apply it.Also, don't stress if after the installation you find yourself with a few bubbles that you cant seem to get rid of. After two days, the bubbles were gone after normal use, warmth from the phone itself and what I imagine- air escaping the material.

    I love the look of this case! It’s exactly what I was looking for. One word of advice: when I first put the case on, there was an issue with the case’s alignment with the power button. I would press the power button, then it would shift and hold the button down. At first, I thought I would have to exchange it. However, I aligned the case with the button and left it alone for about 30 minutes. I’ve had ZERO issues with the the button alignment since!

    First, this case is confirmed for Pixel 2 XL. The coral color looks bright and eye-catching. The material is a little slippery even though it claims to be fabric. The case itself is super super light weight lighter than you would expect. It is s feel between plastic and fabric but I would anticipate it gets stained a lot easier. Fits perfect on my panda color Pixel 2 XL and all buttons are clicky. The inter material is super soft so it should provide enough buffer to protect your phone from dropping.

    The case looks great. Despite being designed by Google for Google's Pixel 2 XL, however, the case did not fit correctly out of the box, depressing the power button in such a way that it caused the phone to constantly cycle off and on until I manipulated the bit of plastic on the case into a different position. I would also prefer if the edges of the case were a millimeter higher around the edges of the phone screen to provide a bit more protection for the screen.

    great unique case that offers moderate protection

    this case is unique due to the fabric used instead of plastics or other polymers. it gives a good amount of grip and some cushion while not being overly thick. however, due to the construction, it is a little heavier than some other cases of similar thickness, and the fabric will pick up stains or liquids since it's not made of plastic, but the black case does now show these as much as the lighter colored ones, but it is something to keep in mind.

    Perfect for People not worried of drops

    The cloth texture is nice, but it isn't a "soft" feeling. The fabric looks pleasing, doesn't make the phone bulky, and provides adequate protection to the sides and back of the phone. It's not slippery, and is very screen protector friendly. Only minor issue is that it slowly retains wear, such as scratches, although it wipes most away, and is waterproof. Also my case has a very minor fray, but this occurred from a drop onto a corner.

    Sharp looking case that goes well with the design of the phone. The felt feel is nice and does not collect fingerprints like many other case on the market do. Cut-outs all match up perfect as expected. Not the thinnest case, but not too much bulk. Definitely feels solid and would protect from decent drops. My only con would be its a bit pricey at 40 bucks.

    Great looks, not completely practical

    This case fits the phone perfectly. The only downside is that the outside is made of cloth. It looks great, feels good in your hand, but I'm always wary of where I set it down (afraid of it getting stained or sopping wet from a little liquid on a table or counter.) You shouldn't have to worry about these things with a case on your phone, but this one keeps that thought in your mind.

    I like the way it looks, but I will likely purchase an additional case to switch between. PROs: 1 it looks cool 2 Makes the "Squeeze" feature much easier. 3 It protects the phone reasonably enough CONs: 1 Way too slippery. If you're used to more grip then avoid this case. 2 dirt is easily collected around the corners. 3 Quality doesnt match price - I think it's $10 over priced.

    This case gets a lot of looks. Its sleek and looks really good. I'm not sure about the long term durability or the protection from a fall that it offers but as of right now I really love this case. It does feel a little slick in the hand, so if you're drop prone this may not be the best case for you

    I have been wanting to get this case for a while. It was on sale and I manged to grab it. Case feels very nice and it's a joy to use the phone. It doesn't fully protect the phone. It's a sacrifice for this kind of a case. I would have loved to have a full protection cloth case. Maybe for Pixel 3.

    Got this for half off and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and feel. Love the material feel even though it makes the phone a tad bit more slippery. My only real complaint is the fingerprint access is a little more obstructed, which makes using fingerprint swipe gestures a pain.

    Bought this for my daughter and it’s been 3 weeks now and it’s still held up pretty well. The fabric felling is still there from day 1 and it hasn’t fallen apart which I expected from fabric. It’s dropped a few times on hardwood flooring and it’s protected the phone every time.

    Since the phone is still very new on the market there wasn't much available for cases at the time. Purchased this because after spending a small fortune on the phone I wanted at least something on it for protection. Since it is a Google case it fits the phone perfectly but there is not much to it for the price.

    I was a bit skeptical at first buying this case at this price point, but I gave it a shot and it has not disappointed. The fabric feel is amazing and unique. It stands out from other cases out there and keeps my phone safe and snug.

    Nice design with the fabric, feels good to touch, however I found it was easy to slide out of my hand at times, I felt the thin material was not good enough to survive a fall to the ground without any damage, returned it and got an otterbox.

    This is a really good case. Its different and feels very good. It's pretty slim. The fabric is a nice touch and above all, its washable :). just don't throw in a washing machine lol. I am enjoying my Pixel 2 XL and this case.

    Does not fit Pixel XL as listed. Clearly marked on box for Pixel 2 XL. Have reached out to Best Buy twice to get the listing updated and they still haven't. Will update rating once they update.
