After a long wait, Google finally released the Pixel 8 series, and the Pixel 8 is the smallest Pixel in the roster since the last two Pixel releases. This not only makes it a compact offering but the new feature set and the improvements done to Android 14 ensure it’s easy for one-handed usage. When you buy a new device, one of the first things you look for online is protective cases to protect your new Pixel. It can be hard to settle for a protective case because as soon as a new device hits the shelves, there’s an overwhelming flow of different types of covers in the market. To make it easier for you to decide which case to pick, here are the best Pixel 8 cases and covers you can buy.
1. Spigen Thin Fit Case for Pixel 8
If you have purchased a high-quality case before, you may have heard of Spigen. The brand is really popular and is known for its premium-looking cases. After being on a hiatus and not making covers for the Pixel 7 series, they are back with a few new cases for the Pixel 8 series. The Thin Fit cases, as the name suggests, are for those who find the usual cases bulky. The case, while adding less bulk than regular cases, has raised lips to protect your phone’s display; And given it’s Spigen, the quality for your bucks should also be high.

Caseology is a Spigen subsidiary that also makes some great smartphone cases. We mentioned their Parallax case in our Pixel 8 Pro cases guide because it’s one of the best cases you can buy for the Pro variant, and Capella is no different for the Pixel 8.
For starters, it’s a clear, transparent case, which is great for showing off the bright colors of Pixels this year. Besides, the case is military-grade drop-tested and is a bit on the expensive side.
