The perfect angle: best kickstand cases for the Google Pixel and Pixel XL
Thanks to their bright AMOLED displays running at high pixel densities, the new Google Pixel and Pixel XL are two of the best smartphones currently available if you're mostly interested in the multimedia experience. While the Pixel XL is much better suited for video consumption due to its large 5.5-inch display, the smaller Pixel holds its own as a compact video player.
This is far from being an exhaustive list of all of the Google Pixel / Pixel XL kickstand cases but it's not meant to be one. Instead of listing all of the kickstand cases for the Google Pixel that we could find, we strived to provide recommendations spanning multiple form factors, build materials, and price points. In the off chance that we've omitted your favorite kickstand case for the Google Pixel or Pixel XL from this list, drop us a line in the comment section below and let us know
Spigen Tough Armor
Spigen Slim Armor
The Spigen Slim Armor cases for the Pixel and Pixel XL come with the exact same plastic kickstand as the Tough Armor models.
Tauri Leather Wallet
As all wallet cases, this one comes with slots for your cards, cash, or ID. Keeping everything tightly closed is a leather band with a magnetic clip. Although this case doesn't feature a kickstand per-se, Tauri's leather wallet for the Google Pixel can be folded in a position that supports the handset at an angle in landscape mode.
If you're looking for an inexpensive leather wallet that also doubles as a kickstand case for the Pixel and Pixel XL, this is it right here!
Zizo Bolt Case
Military Standard 810G-certified drop protection aside, the case also comes with an interesting angular design and is available in a range of colors. The kickstand on the back is made out of plastic and fixes into a locked position.
The i-Blason Transformer comes with a hard PC case and a shock-absorbing inner sleeve. We're sure that many professional Netflix/YouTube bingers will appreciate the ability to adjust the angle of the kickstand on the back.
VRS Design High Pro Shield
Like most kickstand cases for the Google Pixel series that we've talked about today, the VRS Design High Pro Shield Case offers two layers of protection, namely a hard PC back cover and a shock-absorbing inner TPU layer. As a side note, the brushed-metal finish earns some bonus points for this case in the aesthetics department.
