Google’s all-new Nexus 6P is a big and beautiful smartphone wrapped in an aluminum design. It features a 5.7-inch Quad-HD display, a fingerprint scanner, and a glass panel around back full of sensors, the camera, flash and more. As a result it has tons to offer, but also could benefit from the protection of a case. Here we’ve round up some great Nexus 6P cases.
At the end of September Google announced the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Both phones are rather popular, but more and more people appear to be choosing the bigger premium Nexus 6P. And while it isn’t a Samsung, so there aren’t as many 3rd party cases and accessories, there are more than a few options worth considering.
The Nexus 6P is already a big device, having a huge 5.7-inch screen and big bezels for the front speakers, so adding a case will only make it bigger. That said, these cases offer tons of protection, add more features like a kickstand and more. These are some of the best choices available right now.
While Google is offering a few cases and accessories of their own right on the Google Store, many other popular 3rd party manufacturers aren’t offering cases for these phones. As some only stick to the popular brands like Samsung or Apple. That said, Verus, Spigen, SUPCASE and others all have some compelling cases to protect Google’s new flagship smartphone.
These awesome Nexus 6P cases range from your typical cheap but quality $10 cases that are thin and lightweight, known as TPU cases, to durable military grade and drop-test approved ones that can handle a beating. We’ve also added in cases that add function on top of protection. Like wallet cases, kickstands, and much more.
It is worth noting that some early cases were covering the laser auto-focus on the Nexus 6P, but most on Amazon and around the web have been updated to reflect the physical changes, and should work with no problems. That said, read the description and reviews of any case before making a purchase.
If none of the below are worth your dollars, get a cheap $8 TPU case and call it a day. That, or try a Toast real wood cover. Although we’d recommend an actual case from our list below. Lets get started.
Speck CandyShell Grip for Nexus 6P
1 / 6
First on the list has to be the Speck CandyShell Grip case for the Nexus 6P. Speck is one of the most popular smartphone case makers, which is why Google partnered with them to offer a case right on the Play Store. We've tried all the cases Google is offering, and this is the only one I liked. Personally. The actual "Google Nexus 6P Case" had a beautiful design and a nice microfiber cloth, but didn't fit right.
Speck is tried and tested, and always delivers great cases. It isn't the thinnest, or the lightest, but is a soft TPU inner material with a hard outer shell for added drop protection. Then, there's slits in the polycarbonate hard-shell allowing for the rubber to slip through, adding to the grip, making it one of the most comfortable cases to hold.
It isn't too thick, but not too thin, and meets military-grade drop tests. Buy with confidence, even if it's expensive.
