Google made the Pixel 3 beautifully thin, but unfortunately, it also made the Pixel 3 a glass-backed phone, and glass-backed phones need cases before they face the concrete jungles of the real world. Nobody likes a clunky tank of a case, but you can protect your phone without losing that thin feel. There are many cases on the market for the Pixel 3 that are so thin, you'll forget you have a case!

Like totally perfect

Totallee Case

Staff pick

It doesn't get much thinner than Totallee, a casemaker that is 110% about making phone cases so thin you'll forget you even have a case on. This 0.02-inch case comes in three styles: Frosted Clear, Solid Black, and a softer Glossy Clear, and each one is totally worth the price.

Lightweight companion

Spigen Thin Fit

It's right there in the name: Spigen Thin Fit case. This aptly-named case offers corner protection and just enough lip around the camera and screen to help avoid scratches and scuffs. Just keep in mind that the top and bottom of the case are open and exposed.

Matte magic

Avalri Ultra Thin

This hardshell case wraps around the back and corners of your Google Pixel 3, giving some scuff and scratch protection without any bulk at all. Avalri's ultra-thin case is just 0.03 inches in thickness and comes in one of five beautiful colors.

Translucent treasure

Cimo Slim Grip

There are slim cases, and then there's the Cimo Slim Grip. This is one of the thinnest cases on the market to protect and showcase your Pixel 3, and the translucent TPU lets the Pixel 3's natural beauty shine through one of three cool colors — blue, purple, and white.

Crystal clear

Spigen Liquid Crystal

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.

Liquid skin

ESR Essential Zero Case

This clear case protects your Pixel 3 from scratches while seeming like it's barely there. The "microdot" pattern on the inside of the back cover helps prevent clinging and that "wet" rainbow/bubbling look that happens with some clear cases.

Again, we've loved Totallee cases for as long as they've been making cases for Android phones, but if you're looking for a thin case that has a thinner price tag, the Cimo Slim Grip gives lightweight protection without any bulk, and its translucent tint allows you to show off your Pixel 3 while still keeping it safe.
