Google Photos Live Case ($40)

You can choose plain or clear from Google to protect your Pixel phone, but we think the Live are worth an extra few dollars. To create your Photos Live case, you pick a favorite shot and drag and drop it into your browser, then edit to get the look you want. The photo is matched with a wallpaper for your home screen. This is perfect personalization made easy. The case itself is pretty basic with accurate cut-outs for every feature and function. These are slim, snap-on , so they aren’t going to provide rugged drop protection, but they’ll guard against scuffs and minor bumps.
