Even owners of Samsung and Apple handsets would have to admit that the Google Pixel 8 Pro is one of the best phones around at the moment (arguably the best Android phone). Besides all the AI smarts Google has built into it, the handset comes with a super-quick Tensor G3 processor, 12GB of RAM, up to 1TB of internal storage, and a powerful triple-lens camera around the back.

That's a lot of smartphone for your money, and it'll cost you a lot of money to get hold of one, as well. Pricing for the Google Pixel 8 Pro starts at a not insignificant £999 / $999 / AU$1699, and that's if you settle for the 128GB model. It's quite an investment, and so you want to make sure your Pixel 8 Pro is well protected while you're out and about.

And this is why you need one of the best Google Pixel 8 Pro cases – these cases will protect your smartphone against drops and knocks, and will often add a touch of extra style as well. If you're in the market for such a case, we've picked out five superb options that we fully recommend below, covering a variety of designs and price points.

We admire a case that goes about its business with the minimum of fuss, and that's certainly true of the Caseology Athlex case for the Google Pixel 8 Pro: it offers a lovely textured feel to improve grip, it keeps your Pixel 8 Pro well protected against accidents, and it has raised lips front and back to look after the display and the cameras. On top of all that, it's available for a very decent price, making it easy for us to recommend it.
