Totallee provided AndroidHeadlines with cases for the Pixel 7 series. As usual, they didn’t have a say in our opinion, nor did they see an advance copy of the review before you. The review was written after using the cases for approximately 7 days.

I finally got both my Pixel 7 Pro and Pixel 7 after a bit of a wait. As usual, the hunt for the ideal case began once the phones arrived. Totallee hooked me up with a couple of cases – one for the Pixel 7 Pro and one for the regular Pixel 7.

Pixel smartphones have a unique distinguishing feature – that camera bar on the rear kinda like the helmet visors worn by Daft Punk band members. While the camera bar gives the Pixel smartphones a unique look, it also presents a decent amount of headache in terms of getting a case that complements Google’s design language.

Totallee has been making minimalist cases for a while now. Their main focus has been iPhones but they have slowly started to branch out making cases for Android devices. As Google’s Pixel series begins to gain momentum it is understandable that Totallee decided to make their cases available for the latest Pixel 7 series.

Totallee Solid Black Case for Pixel 7 Pro

This case is probably the best example of why people love Totallee cases. It is extremely thin, so thin that you don’t feel like the phone has a case on it.

Totallee claims that the thickness of this Solid Black case is .02″ thick – .508mm. Twenty-thousandths of an inch does classify as extremely thin! For our metric system readers, this case is just over half a millimeter in thickness!

The upside of this case is its bare minimalist construction and design. The downside is of course this case isn’t going to provide any sort of serious drop protection. The idea of this case is to prevent any visible scratches to the frame and the rear glass mainly from plunking it onto a work desk or a car phone holder or even in your pocket. I do think that the case will prevent that camera visor from getting any scratches.

Overall fit and finish are excellent in terms of cutouts for buttons, ports, and speaker grilles. Not to mention the cutouts for the cameras and flash on the bar at the rear which shows the gold color accent very nicely on my Hazel Pixel 7 Pro.

Totallee also sent us a thin Clear Soft case for the Pixel 7. Keep in mind that this case is not as thin as the Solid Black and does offer a decent amount of protection against small drops.

The clear case is made from TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) which has anti-yellowing compounds added to it. Design-wise, the case offers a good amount of grip and excellent tactile buttons. Cutouts are also in the right location and do not block the ports or grilles.

Since the case is clear, it allows you to show off the fancy colors that the Pixel 7 series comes in. My personal Pixel 7 is Snow White and, as you can see from the pictures, the case does a great job of showing the white/silver color scheme.

I have been a big fan of clear cases for many years now because I like smartphones with unique color schemes. This year, I eschewed the green color for the regular Pixel 7, and this Totallee Clear Soft case does a great job in terms of showing the color off while providing a decent amount of drop protection.

Final thoughts

Totallee Case Pixel 7 AH HR Verdict

For those people who don’t like bulky rugged cases on their smartphones, the Totallee Solid Black case and Totallee Clear Soft case are easy to recommend. The Solid Black is ultra-thin and extremely minimal, while the Clear Soft is a bit thicker with buttons that provide superior tactile feedback.
