Totallee thin cases for the Pixel 4 and iPhone 11 Pro: Attractive minimalist cases protect from scratches

It seems just about everyone uses a case on their phone today, but sometimes you don't want to be bothered by the bulk, Totallee makes some of the thinnest minimalist cases today and recently launched new colors for the Pixel 4 and iPhone 11 Pro.

Totallee thin matte cases for the Google Pixel 4 and Apple iPhone 11 Pro

I previously took a look at the Totallee iPhone 11 Pro clear case, but was very excited to see more color options added for this new small iPhone. The green color perfectly matches the color that Apple produced for the iPhone 11 Pro.

In addition, I was able to try out two matte cases for the Google Pixel 4. Totallee has frosted clear and black options for the Pixel 4. One shows off the default color of the Pixel while the other makes it a black phone.

Be proud of the green

The green matte finish Totallee case, $29 retail price, matches the iPhone 11 Pro perfectly and I'm very pleased to be able to enjoy the color of the phone even while being protected from scratches and minor bumps.

There is a slight raised arear around the triple cameras to protect the lenses while the matte finish helps you keep the phone in hand.

Native button access

While the back and edges are protected from scratches and bumps, there are cutouts on either side so that you still use the native buttons of the iPhone 11 Pro.

On the left side the two volume buttons shines through the openings while there is a cutout for the ringer switch. On the right side you get access to the right side button so there is never any worry about not activating your buttons.

Frosted clear matte case for the Google Pixel 4

Google released Pixel 4 phones with basic colors and highlighted power buttons. The frosted clear Totallee case lets you show off the color of your Pixel 4 and power button. Even the edges are shown through this matte finish case.

The right side volume buttons and power button have cutouts in place so you can access the buttons as Google designed them.

Camera opening and edge protection

There is a camera opening for the square dual camera setup on the Pixel 4 while the black edges of the phone are visible too. The Pixel 4 looks fantastic in this frosted clear case and it may be my new favorite case for the Pixel 4.

Solid black Totallee Pixel 4 case

While I've been testing the white Pixel 4, something like this $29 Totallee Solid Black case turns your Pixel 4 into a black model with an orange button.

The Solid Black case has a matte finish to help you hold onto your phone. These Totallee cases add just 0.1 ounce to the weight of the Pixel 4 and are an minimalist as you can get.

Back of the Totallee Pixel 4 case

There is no branding on the case, which makes it seem like it's a native back for the Pixel 4. There is an edge around the camera area, but the flat glass of the Pixel 4 provides the protection here.

You cannot see the original white color of the Pixel 4 with the Solid Black case mounted on the phone.
