The Pixel 6 Pro that actually holds yours as you type this article is protected with a case. Yes, this writer used to not have a case, and it wasn’t until yours actually bought the Pixel 2 XL in 2018 that a follow-up purchase was made for protection. And the two handsets I’ve bought since then, the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the aforementioned Pixel 6 Pro, both sport protection.
To be fair, the cases I bought were from third-party manufacturers, ranging in price from $15 to $55. In this writer’s experience, the cheaper product offered the same protection as the more expensive case. Now, some Pixel 6 series owners who are struggling with hardware and software bugs have another problem that they complain about: the first-party cases that Google leans on the online Google Store.
These cases are made for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Complaints about these cases are popping up reddit
and Amazon. One Reddit subscriber wrote: “I paid the extra money for the official Google case because I thought it would be good quality. 7 months later and it’s twisting the knobs for no apparent reason. A quick Google search showed me that the same thing happened with the 4a5G cases.”
This case for the Pixel 6 Pro, sold by Google, was pink seven months ago
Another problem with the Pixel 6 series cases offered by Google is that they turn yellow. This is a common complaint and a Reddit subscriber was able to get a full refund for their case when it started showing the same issue. How did he do it? He contacted Google at https://support.google.com/store/gethelp and used the online chat feature. He sended Google photos of his business (which he called “photo proof”), and his order ID number, and that was enough for Google to send back a full refund.
Protect your Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro with a Spigen case
This is not a new development as similar complaints about the business date back to January. And since quite a few recent complaints have been written about this issue, it seems that Google has never been able to improve the quality of its business. Other than the cases turning yellow, some are no longer able to protect a phone from drops after warping and else lose their ability to protect a handset from landing on a hard surface.
In the grand scheme of things, this isn’t the worst problem in the world, as Pixel 6 series owners can always pick a new case to buy, except for the one Google sells. Personally, I have used Spigen cases on my Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 6 Pro and both have protected my phones very well.
