Without a doubt, the Google Nexus 6P is a pretty sweet smartphone. It is fast, powerful, and probably the best device to experience Android in its latest, purest form. But as a recent Nexus 6P teardown showed, repairing the phone could be a real challenge. Of course, yours probably won’t go through the extreme torture session we recently saw, but you just don’t know what might result after an accidental slip out of your jacket. Or if you happen to sit on it while it is in your back pocket. Or if it falls off the roof of your car. Or… you get the idea.
Thankfully, someone has already invented protective smartphone cases. They keep our gadgets safe from harm and don’t really cost all that much. And if you’re in the market for a Nexus 6P case, there’s already a variety of offerings to pick from. Below are listed the best Nexus 6P cases we could dig up. Ranging from soft and slim to tough and rugged, they’ll protect your handset against the every-day wear and tear. Check them out, and do let us know in the comments which one you find best!
1. Spigen Rugged Armor Nexus 6P case

Colors for the case have been chosen to suit the handset, regardless of the color you have picked.

This protective case by Verus aims to strike a balance between protection and comfort. It isn’t overly thick, yet it should protect your Nexus 6P against accidental bumps and drops.
