The Nexus 6P is one of the most anticipated phones of 2015. Featuring a big 5.7-inch Quad HD display, super loud front-facing speakers, Android 6.0 Marshmallow and an all-metal unibody design, this high-end Nexus phone is certainly an attractive device. Just because it’s made mostly of metal, though, that doesn’t mean the device is impervious to bumps and scratches. Thankfully, that’s where a good case can come in.
We’ve rounded up some of the best cases you can buy for the Nexus 6P and listed them below in no particular order. It should also be noted that since the Nexus 6P just came out, not many cases are available for the device at the moment. We’ve listed the release dates for each case and attached Amazon links as well, so you can get your hands on these accessories the day they become available.
It wouldn’t be a best cases roundup without Spigen. The Rugged Armor Ultimate case provides a great balance between form and functionality. It’s made of a single layer of TPU and its corners are equipped with Spigen’s Air Cushion Technology for protection against small bumps and drops. It also has a raised lip and camera cutout that will lift screen and lens off flat surfaces, which is a nice touch. The Rugged Armor Ultimate case will be available soon for just $12.99.
Spigen’s Ultra Hybrid Clear cases are quite popular thanks to their slim design and cheap price point. This case comes with a 1.2mm raised lip and 4-point rear guards that protect the front and back from flat surfaces, which is something we always like to see. The buttons are easy to press, and the clear design of the case will allow your Nexus 6P’s beautiful aesthetics to shine through. The Ultra Hybrid Clear case will be available soon for just $13.99.
SUPCASE’s Unicorn Beetle Slim case will provide tons of protection for your device while only adding a small amount of bulk. It’s made of high-grade soft thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and hard polycarbonate (PC) materials for added protection, and easily snaps on to the phone. It has a somewhat sporty/rugged design to it, as well, and comes in three different color options. The SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Slim case will be available very soon starting at just $6.99.
If you’re a fan of SUPCASE accessories but want a little more protection, you might want to give this one a try. The SUPCASE Heavy Duty case features an advanced dual layer design that combines a polycarbonate hard shell and flexible TPU for added protection against drops, bumps and bruises. This case also comes with a built-in screen protector, which is a feature we’re really happy to see included on rugged cases like this. This Heavy Duty case will be available very soon in three different color options, starting at only $12.99.
If you don’t mind paying a little extra money for official accessories, this Adopted Stylish case might be the one for you. It comes in two color options, Carbon or Quartz, and features a textured microfiber exterior to keep your phone secure in your hand. It also has a strong frame and slightly raised bezel to help protect against bumps and falls. It’s available now from the Google Store for $34.99.
If you’re looking for a basic, no frills case for your Nexus 6P, Adopted’s Protective case could certainly fit the bill. This case is available in two colors: Carbon, Clear Frost. There may not be any fancy features here, but you do get a solid case that helps protect your Nexus 6P from drops, scrapes and scratches. Pricing isn’t on the lowest spectrum, but $20 isn’t a bad asking price by any means.
The Verus High Pro Shield case offers tons of protection and doesn’t sacrifice looks in any way. It’s made of high-grade TPU and polycarbonate and features a TPU lip to protect the device from short drops and scratches. In my opinion this is one of the more attractive cases on this list, thanks to the brushed-metal look on the back of the case. It’s available now in five different color options for only $16.99.
The TUDIA Ultra Slim case is a pretty simple looking case, though it is still a reasonably attractive one at that. It’s made of a high-quality TPU material and gives the case a nice soft touch feel. Although it likely won’t protect the phone from drops, it can stop your Nexus 6P from getting scratched or bruised. You can get the TUDIA Ultra Slim in your choice of Black, Blue, Gray or Purple for only $7.99.
If you’re a fan of wallet cases, you can’t go wrong with the Tauri Luxury Wallet Leather case. It features three built-in credit card pockets and and extra pocket for carrying money. You can also use the cover as a kickstand if you’d like to watch movies or YouTube videos at your desk. It’s not the most protective case out there, but it will protect your Nexus 6P from dust, dirt and small bumps and bruises. The Tauri Luxury Wallet Leather case is available now in Black, Hot Pink, Purple and Mint for just $9.99.
Last but not least we have MoKo’s Hard Bumper case for the Nexus 6P. It’s made of a hard polycarbonate and features a silicon inner layer to protect against scratches, bumps, bruises and drops. The design isn’t anything special, but we think the price makes up for it. This case will be available soon in five different color options starting at just $3.59.
