    Feels Great but WAAYYYYyy worse than Pixel 2 varia

    Fair Warning: This case DID NOT protect my phone from a 3 foot drop on to a tile floor and Google Support was &^$%$&*# about trying to get any help. I got the same case for my Pixel 2 and that variant was much better then this one for a key reason: the lips that surrounded the screen were much higher, thus protecting the screen from damage when dropped. For some reason the pulled the lip back flush with the phone for the pixel 3, which resulted in my phone breaking. Based on having two versions I would say always go darker with the fabric color or you will realize how dirty your pocket/purse/etc is as the Pink Moon showed dirt FAST while my charcoal on pixel 2 still looks amazing. Fabric Case is very minimal, compliments the phone design well and feels great and lets you grip the phone well, but this version is inferior to the previous release.

    Lovely case with a couple of issues

    These Google cases look extremely nice and feel good in the hand. My only problem with them is what makes them so nice in the first place - the fabric. While they feel good they're more slippery than expected in your hand. It's also prone to slide around a bit say if it's on your leg in the car. Also, and this may be particular to my hand - I use my pinky the support the phone since it's so large and the fabric on the bottom of the case has really irritated the skin where it sits. Minor I know but my pinky hurts :) Overall a very nice case if you can deal with the ergonomics of the fabric.

    A nice, but slippery feeling case

    The cloth composite is different from what I'm used to. Not good, not bad, just different. It does look great, though. I typically gravitate to phone cases that have a sticky feel to them because I suffer from dry hands and most cases just slide right out of my hands just as this one does. I was disappointed because I thought cloth would have a more adhering property to it. I've asked my wife to see if she has some vinyl that we can stick to the case's sides to help. You hate to modify a $40+ case because of this, but alas, that's exactly what we're doing. I do like the case, so I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for one that's lightweight and attractive.

    This case was designed especially for Pixel phones, and it shows. The build quality is fantastic, the buttons work like there's no case (it even replicates the colored power button on the side), and it feels good in the hand. The case offers good impact protection, and the unique fabric lining is stain resistant and cleans easily with dish soap. The case is compatible with wireless charging. My only minor complaint is the cloth is a bit slippery due to the tight knit stitching, and if you use a magnetic car mount it won't work- the phone will keep slipping off or twisting around. You'll need to use a "cradle" style mount.

    I previously bought a Spigen for my pixel for an all rounded protection, but the type that I got had little to no grip. Felt as if it would slide out of my hand at any moment. So I turned and bought myself the Google Pixel indigo case. At first I had my doubts about the protection but it actually does it job. It covers all around including the buttons with no gaps. Plus the look of the case has nice touch to it. In my opinion it looks great with the protection. Not bulky, firm grip, and nice color with the logo on the back. For you Google fans out there, it's a great case to buy.

    Loved the style of this phone and the fabric but it offered no protection. Even with that, I would have been fine but just putting my phone in my jeans pocket occasionally over 2 days COMPLETELY changed the color of the case and it looks discussing and dirty and it can't be cleaned since the entire case is just fabric. Awful and such a waste of money. So disappointed

    FAIR - Only Looks Good

    I bought this case with high hopes - however - I do not believe this case will provide any protection for your phone. It does looks great and feel great but it almost has no screen lip for front facing drops and no cushion for any other kinds of drops. So - if you are not looking for any protection from drops and only want to protect the phone when it is in your pocket from scratches - then this will work. I also saw a YouTube video of someone who had this case and dropped the phone from 2 ft on a corner and cracked the screen - yikes.

    I originally had the Otterbox case, but it wasn't working with the Google Charge stand 100%, so I switched to this case. The phone is very slippery, and I had hoped this case would make it less slippery. Sadly, this case makes it more slippery. It's a neat looking case, but that's about it. I don't think it's too functional as far as protection goes. It might reduce scratching on the rear of the case. If you traditionally don't use cases but want a little something extra, it's a fine cover, but that's about it.

    Did not protect

    I was very excited to get my new Pixel 3 XL and bought this case under the assumption that the manufacturer would know how to best protect the phone. I was very disappointed when the screen became cracked with the phone in my pocket. The case does not go up high enough on the sides to protect the glass from contact. I think the pocket knife I had in my pocket must have contacted the screen at the side and cracked it. I also had a Zagg invisibleshield on the screen that did not help.

    I love the design style and look of the case. Especially the mint green button on the side. After using the case on my Pixel 3 XL though I found that it's extremely slippery when trying to hold with one hand. As your typing or doing something your constantly having to rearrange it due to how slippery the case is and makes it extremely annoying and or worse could end up leading to a dropped or broken phone. I ended up returning it and going with the Clear Speck hardshell case for now.

    Stylish yet Useless

    To start off positive, I love this case. I have the "Just Black" 3 xl & I got the Fog case. The material feels amazing, the mint green power button looks awesome, and the cutouts are perfect. But when it comes to protecting your phone the screen is basically fully exposed. Thank goodness I have a screen protector on, otherwise I would fear for my life. So if you just want a stylish case to keep the scratches and scuffs away, this is the case for you.

    Don't Risk It

    I bought this case along with the Zagg Invisible Shield Glass+ VisionGuard. The screen cracked after one fall onto wood flooring. There was no damage to the case or shield. I will return this case as soon as I can, I had the phone about 5 days when this happened, painful lesson learned. The case looks and feels great, the way it sits around the edges exposes enough of the screen that the case and shield will not protect from cracks, not worth the risk.

    Great thin case

    This Google case specifically made for the pixel 3 is great. It has more of a clothing material feel in your hand than a hard plastic case feel. It is thinner and molds to your phone yet gives enough protection if you drop it. I personally do not like big bulky cases. I have seen reviews where it has been said that the case is slippery but I do not find that personally to be true. This case has great styling.

    Best case for Pixel 3 XL

    This case is by far one of the best. While it looks small, it's very mighty. The soft, suede-like inside keeps the back of the phone from being scratched, and the bezels around the phone are just large enough to keep anything from touching the screen while face-down. I have dropped my phone a couple of times with this case on, and the phone literally bounced. Not a dent, scratch or defect. Perfect to compliment your new Pixel 3 XL!

    Best Looking Pixel Case

    This has to be the best looking case for the Pixel. It hides the volume rocker on the side, making it look even more minimalistic with just the power button, and it is a great looking blue, not purple (like I thought indigo was going to be). It's a good middle ground between a soft and hard shell case with a soft interior to save ur phone from scratches. Love it so far.

    Great case; needs cleaning occasionally

    I love the feel of this case, and it fits my phone really well. It's not the most protective, but it's made to be simple, light protection. My biggest gripe is that I have to clean it about once a month. I use a gentle shampoo and rince it really well and all is good, but I can't think of a case that I've had to shampoo to keep looking good before I got this one.

    nice nubbly texture, too expensive!

    lightweight, almost flimsy case made of a slight nubbly texture so it's easy to grip, and warm to the touch, but this thing cost 35 bucks! and it's not made to be impact resistant or anything protective at all. It's just a lightweight case that slips on to help make a thin phone a tiny bit bulkier and easier to grab and hold onto. If that's what you want, it's good. Thirty-five bucks, though!

    wireless charging is excellent, but slippery case

    pros: phone charges in the stand wirelessly , seems to be as good as wired, tho I havn't actually tested it. the case material seems sturdy, and shows no wear after several months of use. cons: the only con against it is that it is fairly smooth, similar to nylon hosiery, so a little too easy for it to slip out of your hand.

    This case is what Google is all about. Simple design, high end materials and great looks. Its a simple slim case that protects the sides and back of the phone, i do recommend a screen protector for your pixel device though as the lip inst big enough to cover the top of the phone. Only reason i gave it 4 starts is because it needs cleaning every now and the.

    It provides the necessary protection for my phone and the built in buttons don't hinder using the buttons on the phone. Only gave 4 stars because of the cloth material. While it's nice and textured, it doesn't prevent any sliding on any angled surface so be mindful if placing it on something like your dashboard. Those "pop out" buttons you place on the back, however, do adhere well to the case.
