This case is a lot more understated than the bold colors of the Parallax, but it will stand the test of time. Legion cases are some of Caseology’s most dependable and I’m grateful it’s available for the Pixel 5.

What this case lacks in fun colors it makes up for in grip and a slim profile. The diamond texture across the back should add grip no matter which way you hold it, and there’s also hatching across the sides.

What are the best cases for your Pixel 5?
The Google Pixel 5 is one of the best Android phones of the year and it deserves only the best cases to protect it. The Caseology Parallax, in particular, is an excellent Google Pixel 5 case because not only does it offer air cushion impact protection and a nice lip around the camera, it has undeniable style. Skip the boring black and get you something bold, like the gold-accented Navy Blue, and the Aqua Green with a green Pixel 5 will look killer!
If you need something a little slimmer we’d recommend the excellent Anccer Colorful Series, which comes in a black that matches the matte black Pixel 5 perfectly and a vivid blue for those of us who need something cooler. We’ll see more cases over the coming months, but with such great Google Pixel 5 cases available right now, why wait?
