This is our favorite affordable leather case for the Google Pixel


There are Android phones and then there is the Google Pixel. Made by Google itself, the company that makes the Android platform, you buy this phone and not only get one of the best cameras ever put on a phone, you also buy a peace of mind that you will not have to wait for months (or a year) to get updated to the latest version of Android. Coupled this with the solid design and extremely smooth performance that the phone offers, and you start to understand why the Google Pixel is amongst our favorite smartphones.

If you have gotten the Google Pixel, though, you might also want to protect it and do so in style. A leather case offers both the soft touch you might want and a decent level of protection, and we've just found our new favorite affordable leather case for the Google Pixel: the X-Level vintage series.

Priced at just $13 on Amazon, this is a dirt cheap leather back cover that complements the Pixel with style and protection. It's available in three colors: black, dark coffee and gold (dark coffee shown below is our favorite), and it's available in a larger version for the Pixel XL as well.

I got one for my wife's S7 Edge and my neice's S7, and I gotta agree, it is a great case, especially for the money. The leather feels great, both have been using it for more than 3 months now, and apart from some letters falling off, the leather still looks immaculate.

What makes a leather case affordable out of curiosity? What makes leather affordable? Is it thinner? Lower grade? Always wondered.
