Hands-on: This leather Pixel Fold case is better than Bellroy’s at a third of the cost

Google’s Pixel Fold may not be the best foldable you can get, but it’s still a great option. However, the super-premium device only has a few good case options, and it’s been especially hard to get a decent leather case for the Pixel Fold. After my go-to favorite turned out to be a disaster, I settled on a $25 alternative that’s shockingly good.

While I love Google’s stellar official case, the silicone back is a little grippy in the humid North Carolina summers, and the bright blue color isn’t one I want to carry all the time. Really, I just wanted the excellent leather case I was using on my Pixel 7 Pro, but for my new foldable.
