    hi guys,

    actually enjoying using the pix3 without a case as at home all the time ....even nicer to hold than my pix2

    .... but can see myself dropping it when out and about :/

    anyone got a really good slim case fitted? .... maybe one of these?

    thanks

    I'm a super-giant-huge fan of the RhinoShield bumper-type cases:
    https://rhinoshield.io/pages/shop/G...ry=crashguard&prod=google-pixel-3-bumper-case

    They provide plenty of protection against drops (take it from someone who's dumped his Pixel 3 on the concrete several times with no damage), make the phone a bit grippier to hold, and still let you enjoy that wonderful glass finish on the back. Seriously, can't recommend enough.

    I'd be pretty wary about any ultra-slim cases as they might not provide much crash protection. Be sure to check that they provide ample overhang over the front of the screen. I found that the later generations of the Google fabric cases are pretty much flush with the screen and therefore completely useless from a protection standpoint. They do look and feel great though.

    DBrand is one of the big names in phone protection, but they are skins (they have some cases too). A skin is literally as slim as it getas: https://dbrand.com/shop/google-pixel-3-skins

    Also, I recently discovered MNML which is the slimest case I've ever used: https://mnmlcase.com/products/pixel-3-mnml-case

    Depends on the skin, but yeah, they tend to be at least marginally more grippy than the bare glass. I've actually got their Teardown skin on my Pixel 3 and I love it.

    ^what he said, lol. All they do is offer barest protection, and provide grip. Dbrand seems to be a favorite of many reviewers/youtubers etc. Probably a discount if you use a promo code from Linus Tech Tips or MKBHD.
