I have the black case and can’t tell if information technology’southward turning yellowish or picking up dirt, but information technology is definitely starting to warp effectually where the power and volume buttons are.

A bad case for a great phone
While we were fans of the Pixel 6 in our review of Google’s latest flagship smartphone, citing its affordability and excellent camera every bit reasons to purchase, information technology’s a shame that the official case hasn’t been up to the same level of quality.
It’s peculiarly disappointing because the case isn’t exactly cheap. At $30 / £25 / effectually AU$42, it’south pricier than unofficial cases that are even sturdier, such every bit the Caseology Vault, which we’ve included in our list of the best Google Pixel 6 cases yous can buy.
Information technology’south worth noting that not every official Google Pixel half-dozen case will face the issues outlined above. Simply for the time beingness, we’d recommend erring on the side of caution and opt for a more reliable unofficial case. Either that, or potentially look for Google to release an updated version.
Even so, at present, there’southward no guarantees as to whether or not the tech giant will plan to release an updated case. We do think Google should consider it, though, especially every bit the official case carries the Google name and branding. As a company that’s no stranger to making high-quality products, nosotros feel it’s in its best interests to address the current problems that some Pixel 6 owners are having with the official case.
