[Deal Alert] Half off Google Pixel 2 & 2 XL first-party Carbon fabric and Rock cases at Best Buy

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

The first-party fabric and Google Earth Live cases for the Pixel 2 and 2 XL were among our favorites when we reviewed them, but the high price tag associated with Google's self-branded cases probably prevented many of our readers from picking one up.
