The Best Google Pixel Fold Case: Thin, Light, MagSafe Compatible

4 min readJun 30, 2023

The long-awaited and the first Google foldable smartphone was finally released last month. It may not be the best foldable phone considering its hardware is nowhere near what people expect to see or come close to foldable phones from other brands like Samsung and Huawei. But you can’t deny that it has exciting new features, such as high-quality camera with photo-editing features and the Google Tensor G2 chip with AI features like Live Translate.

A nice case is indispensable for many phone users, and foldable phone users are no exception. Today we will introduce the MagEZ Case 3 for Pixel Fold and explain why it’s the best Google Pixel Fold case.

Lightweight yet Durable

The Google Pixel Fold weighs 283 grams (10 ounces), which is about 80 to 100 grams heavier than regular smartphones. If you are not used to foldable phones or big phones like the iPhone 14 Pro Max, you will feel the weight difference when holding the Pixel Fold. For such a big heavy device, it’s not smart to put on a bulky case to increase your everyday burden.

The Pixel Fold case from PITAKA is about 21.5 grams (0.76oz). Considering it features a MagSafe array, it’s indeed one of the lightest MagSafe cases.

That said, the light Pixel Fold case can protect your device from scratches and scuffs in daily use as it’s crafted from military-grade aramid fiber which is lighter but stronger than steel and often used in aerospace, military, and bulletproof wear industries.

Built to Last

Speaking of aramid fiber, it’s scratch-resistant, sweat-resistant, and corrosion-resistant. In other words, it’s very stable chemically.

So Pixel Fold cases made from aramid fiber can hold up for years. They won’t fade or age easily. And they are easy to clean.

Thin Pixel Fold Case

Google claims that the Pixel Fold is the thinnest foldable of all. Foldable phones are inevitably heavier and bigger than nonfoldable phones, so it matters a lot that Google strives to keep its foldable as thin as possible.

To maintain the slim silhouette of the Google Pixel Fold, a thin Pixel Fold case is necessary. On the other hand, a thin case means less bulk.

PITAKA’s MagEZ Case 3 for Pixel Fold is about 1mm thin. You may not think that’s slim enough, but considering it has MagSafe magnets, it’s thinner than most MagSafe cases out there. PITAKA uses its proprietary technology MagSafe SlimBoard™ to keep the Pixel Fold case as thin as possible while keeping the MagSafe magnets embedded.

Pixel Fold Case with MagSafe Compatibility

That’s right. PITAKA’s Pixel Fold case is MagSafe compatible.

MagSafe is a proven success. Magnetic connection makes wireless charging more stable and carrying more convenient. Like Apple, we hope more and more people can embrace the MagSafe technology and enjoy its tremendous benefits.

PITAKA has been making MagSafe phone cases since the iPhone 12. And they not only make MagSafe cases for the iPhone series but also for Samsung Galaxy S series, Galaxy Fold series, and Google Pixel Fold.

The MagEZ Case 3 features a strong MagSafe attachment that lets you connect the Pixel Fold to MagSafe accessories including the MagEZ Slider (a 3-in-1 wireless charger), MagEZ Car Mount (MagSafe phone holder), and MagEZ Grip.

Excellent Grip

Through the vacuum forming process and special spraying and painting, the Pixel Fold case maintains the smooth and delicate texture of aramid fiber while offering a nonslip grip. As a result, it’s grippy like cases with a matte finish but smoother and more comfortable.

Uniquely Stylish

The MagEZ Case 3 for Pixel Fold is available in three colors, black/grey, overture, and rhapsody. The black and grey version has this carbon look that many people find attractive. If you prefer a little color in your daily life, you may consider the overture and rhapsody. These two versions were crafted using Fusion Weaving technique, a new way developed by PITAKA to weave aramid fiber into intricate and beautiful patterns.

It’s true to say that you can’t find aramid fiber cases with anything similar to PITAKA’s. It has this understated style in a minimalist design that can go with any occasions.

Other Details

The PITAKA Pixel Fold case has a raised camera lip to protect the rear lens. Placing your phone with the screen down on the table is a concern of the past. In addition, the charging port area is cut completely open to fit any type of cable. And buttons are not covered either for smooth pressing and operation.

Silicone cases attract oil and dust and become dirty easily. Leather cases can be heavy and age and break as time goes by. Transparent cases will turn yellow as they age. But with aramid fiber cases, you can enjoy the ultra-lightness and durability without sacrificing style or other things.

PITAKA has the best Pixel Fold case made of genuine 600D aramid fiber. It’s light, thin, and MagSafe compatible. It can hold up for years and has this never-before-seen style.
