Pixel / Pixel XL wood cover Reviews

The skin looks great, feel great, and even smells great, but it does have draw backs. It's expensive and not very durable. Unless you need that wood look and feel it's not worth it. Also after a few months of use they will get scratched, corners will break off, and it might even attract some pen and pencil marks. It does look really good though
Stylish, but not Durable
Posted by Kevin on 20th Nov 2018
I previously had this case with the ebony finish; it looked rich and luxurious and received many compliments. The product lasted 8 mo to a year before the all four corners were completely crumbled off. At that point, I ordered another case in white. I do not recommend the white -- it makes your phone look like an iPhone!
Posted by Eric on 1st Apr 2018
The front panel does not cover the entire front bezel especially the sides. This is very prominent especially on the white version of Pixel XL.
TOAST RESPONSE: Thanks for your feedback. We do leave some of the bezel exposed. This is so you can touch the entire screen. If we came right to the edge of the screen then you would lose some functionality.

Just a few days after the installation, parts of the corners were detached by it self, then quietly, the four corners suffered the same fate. The corners of my phone are now unprotected and more and more damaged and the broken wood is cutting my hand. The back of the phone remains nice and slick, but I am really disappointed with the quality of the product in general.
It sounds like you received a defective cover, as any adhesive defects will present themselves within the first few weeks. We are happy to replace it under warranty it and get you a replacement, simply email us at email@example.com with photos.
Does what it says
Posted by yancy bullock on 8th Nov 2017
It covers your phone nicely while hiding those scratches on the back of the phone. The front face even elevates the screen a little.
Posted by Mike on 10th Oct 2017
I have now bought two of these. I replaced the first one after about 10 months because all the corner pieces had peeled off and the wood grain was starting to feel worn. They are very easy to apply when new and take off when you need to replace them. The wood feels secure and comfortable to hold. I would definitely recommend trying one out.
Best case EVER
Posted by Ari on 5th Oct 2017
This is the best case I've ever had. I get compliments on it everywhere I go and it provides the perfect protection for my needs. It does not make the already sizable phone any larger, and the wood has a really nice hand feel. You definitely pay more than you would for some other cases, but you get what you pay for. The only downside is that it is one use, but given the design, it really needs to be. Don't wait, just get one...you won't regret it.
Cover looks great, but the front panel blocks the sensor
Posted by Scott on 3rd Aug 2017
I love the look and feel of the cover on my Pixel. My only complaint is about the front panel. I installed the panel as accurately as I could, and everything seemed to line up within maybe a millimeter of accuracy. I quickly found that, during calls, I could not access the screen. I realized the top of the panel might be interfering with the proximity sensor. Sure enough, I removed the top portion of the panel (sadly) and my proximity sensor was working again! I reapplied the top portion in a variety of positions, but each one interfered with the sensor. I am not sure if they product tested this feature, but I would recommend updating the design to leave the area around that sensor much larger.
TOAST RESPONSE: Thanks for your feedback. Please contact us with this issue. This is the first we have heard of an issue with a sensor on the Pixel. We will correct it immediately if this is a problem with our cover.
A good choice
Posted by Matthew Dunavant on 20th Jul 2017
I like this product. It looks good and feels good. It's more of a skin than a case, to be honest. And the corners were a bit flimsy, one of the little pieces broke off during installation (though that could be my clumsy fingers). I would recommend this product.
Don't hesitate to take advantage of our "butterfingers" policy: we offer everyone a free do-over if something goes awry during installation! Just send us some photos for verification and we'll get a second cover headed your way, on us.

Really awesome durable product! Super easy to install and really lasts! You won't be disappointed!
Exactly what I wanted out of a wood skin
Posted by Erik on 14th Jun 2017
Great phone skin, precision cut to perfection. If you have a steady hand and apply the skin correctly you'll be happy with the purchase. Only drawback I can see is that it catches a bit of pocket lint in the tiny spaces between the wood pieces but not a big deal. I'll be toasting all my future phones for sure.
Awesome! The lint sticking issue disappears after a few days. It occurs because of the exposed adhesive on the edges. Thanks!
Functional and Beautiful
Posted by TK on 7th Jun 2017
As long as you're a little careful when you stick it on, and follow the directions about rolling the corners, the end result is awesome! I've had Toast covers on all of my phones since I found out about them. The wood is high quality and well cut, the adhesive is strong but doesn't ruin the phone if you ever need to get it off, but more importantly, my phone is more than just a slab of cold steel and glass now. There's a character to the cover that you don't get with a bare phone. Not to mention, it's quite a bit grippier than my naked device, which is a great piece of mind.
Got my phone knocked out of my hand earlier today - BAM! Right onto concrete. TWO solid bounces. That would have destroyed any other phone, or at least completely scratched up the metal. With my Toast cover, my phone is perfectly fine. Little scratch on the wood, but that just adds to the character of the cover.
I won't buy a phone again unless there's a Toast cover for it.

No company will ever top what Toast has done with this real wood skin. I hate everything about cases. They ruin the look and the feel of the phone and every other skin that I've seen is not so attractive. I purchased the ebony wood skin for my Google pixel and it looks absolutely amazing and the cut is absolutely perfect. The phone is now ever so slightly larger making it more comfortable to hold. The wood grain adds grip as well. I'm assuming the skin adds decent protection from drops even if the wood cracks on impact. Another surprising upgrade is the audio quality. My pixel has had a horrible speaker rattle and the treble is overwhelming and obnoxious. There is now enough wood on the skin to give the phone great acoustics and the volume seems louder and far more clear than before. Most of all, the phone is now gorgeous. I love it. This was worth every penny and was incredibly easy to install. Wish I could purchase this exact same grain and color for my pixel c tablet.
Good product, but you're stuck if your phone dies
Posted by Chris on 10th May 2017
Product seemed pretty good, except my phone died within a week of applying it. It was a brick and was replaced through my work by warranty. I was offered a discount if i could prove with exact sets of documentation that I received a warranty replacement for exactly $0. I sent several sets of documentation, which didn't seem to be what they wanted. Ultimately the last document I sent them they never replied to, so today I do not have a toast skin on my phone, and will likely not consider one in the future.
Toast Reply: We offer a 50% discount on a replacement cover if your phone has to get replaced or repaired under warranty. We simply ask for proof (receipt) of the warranty repair.
Posted by Marcus Young on 15th Apr 2017
My original thought was that this was a case and not a cover. And if you are wondering the difference... I would describe a case as something you snap onto your phone and a cover is something you attach to your phone using glue or tape. It is the latter. That being said, I love it! It's feels like wood, it smells like wood, and the precision cutting makes it so the phone looks like it was created with the wood.
Posted by Jacob Dymond on 11th Apr 2017
I love it! The only problem I had with it was putting it on my phone, so mine is a little off kilter, but that's just because I was in a bit of a rush.
Good quality except for the corners
Posted by Patrick Albert on 8th Apr 2017
I was expecting a proper case but the wrap actually looks really nice. My only disappointment is that I put it on perfectly after watching the videos but less than a day later a corner already fell off.
We try to make it clear that it's not a traditional snap-on case, so I'm glad to hear you like it.
About the corner... that sounds like something that would be covered under our warranty. Send us a pic at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get you taken care of.
Enhanced my Pixel
Posted by Ben Tuson on 31st Mar 2017
Nice quality cover that is non-instrusive. It looked like a daunting job to fit, but proved really enjoyable. Very successful installation and smart protection.
Posted by Banca on 14th Mar 2017
Je suis très heureuse de mon cover en bois de toast mais je suis un peu déçue de me rendre finalement compte que ce n'ai qu'un collant qu'on colle sur l'objet en question et non un vrai cover comme il semble l'être sur les photo, alors ça ne protège en aucun cas le telephone mais lui a donné un look d'enfer il faut ce le dire. Maisf, si ce n'ai que de cela ce n'ai pas cela, je suis ravie de mon achat avec toast et son service rapide pour recevoir sa commande. Je recommande le service.
Bien à vous,
Une petite fille très heureuse de son achat
Nice looking wood wrap
Posted by Dave Estes on 9th Mar 2017
Easy to install. The corners don't appear to be as neatly attached as they do in the picture. Had I known, I would have saved my 30 some odd dollars.
Posted by Unknown on 9th Mar 2017
The application was surprisingly easy, and the product itself is quality. Gives my phone a unique feel / look. Have received a few compliments on the look from friends as well.
Beware light colored phones
Posted by David on 3rd Mar 2017
Enjoy the look and feel of the product. However, having a white phone all of the minor areas that are not completely covered by the skin can be easily seen. Would recommend the skin only for dark color phones. The front plate does not cover to the edge of the screen on the bottom. Not sure if I got a bad cut out.... Or if they did this on purpose because for function. The pixel has no physical button on the face so I can see why toastmade decided to expose some of the edges for functionality. I would have preferred coverage to the edge of the screen. Overall please with the case just wish I had a black phone.
What can I say...
Posted by Unknown on 28th Feb 2017
Looks great and was easy to put on. Fit was perfect.
Posted by Michael on 20th Feb 2017
This is a high quality, durable skin. The cutouts are perfect so long as you take your time to ensure that you get it right the first time (the adhesive is very strong).
Stylish at the next level
Posted by Antonio Cardace on 13th Feb 2017
Fast delivery and easy to install
Very nearly perfect
Posted by Daniel on 7th Feb 2017
I was so excited to get this in the mail, and the packaging was simple, but very effective. the instructions are not the best, and i would honestly recommend that Toast look towards the instructions that a company like Dbrand has for applying their skins. Word of caution, the adhesive is VERY strong, so be very careful when putting this on your product. I would like to see some more cuts made on the corners and sides, as they are a bit sharp/pointy until everything is worn down. Also around the camera/flash/mi on the back the opening is very small and bits of fuzz like to collect in there, so a single large opening to accommodate all of that stuff might work better.
Overall, i am impressed with the quality, i love the subtle texture, and it provides ample protections against short drops and bumps. Many people ask if it is real wood, since the veneer is so thin and fits the phone so well. Giving it 4 stars feels a bit unfair, i would rather give this product a 4.5/5 stars since its so close to being perfect.
Looks good, but...
Posted by Michael Wilber on 7th Feb 2017
Great looking case! But despite the elbow grease that I applied to get the adhesive to stick the corner 'fingers' seem to like to flick off. For anyone installing these, make sure to take extra care around the corners for the first few days as the adhesive cures. Still looks great.
Best phone case on the market
Posted by Jason Clifford on 28th Jan 2017
I was apprehensive buying this product, but very much pleasantly surprised. I've now had it on my phone for a week and a half, and I like it more every day. The details are stunning, the quality of the wood finish is a cut above any other phone case product I've seen, and the product is easy to apply. You can tell care goes into each one, as it fits perfectly and every detail is considered.
I can't see myself not having one of these on my phone from here on out. Great product!
Posted by Unknown on 27th Jan 2017
While not a true case per se, it is a fantastic cover. It looks amazing, the detailing is phenomenal. It's easy to apply and really durable.
THIS IS A SKIN NOT A CASE BUT STILL AWESOME
Posted by Andrew Petersen on 20th Jan 2017
Ordered this product with the full intentions of it being a case. Had I browsed the site more, I would have realized that most Toast products are skins, but I was sent to this page directly from an Instagram ad. There are very few details on this page specifying that this product is a skin. It wasn't until I opened the package that I realized what I had bought. Though the fault mainly lies with me, I'm sure I'm not the first to make the mistake. Because I work with phones and phone accessories on a daily basis, I decided to try it anyway. This thing looks great and fits all dementions perfectly. My only complaint is that the skin does not lip over the front of the phone, leaving the screen exposed. It is not meant to protect and with the product being an adhesive skin, it is not something you can swap for a different, more protective option, on the fly. Had I known this product was a skin, I most likely would have refrained from purchasing. I give the product 5 stars seeing it does as advertised.
By far the BEST case I have ever purchased
Posted by Carla on 5th Jan 2017
I think my review headline says it all. I love this case. Fits my phone PERFECT, even the button pieces, looks amazing. Only problem is I lose it on our dark wood bar haha, which is actually compliments how awesome the wood case looks! It just blends right in! Awesome job Toast! I would definitely recommend your cases to my friends and family.
Posted by Vlad on 5th Jan 2017
Not a bad product at all, pretty easy to apply - I didn't know it was a sticker not a hard case. Customer service is awesome and called to clarify some things before they cut my custom text into it, however, in an attempt to fulfill my vision for the layout of text, it ended up so small it's almost illegible. I would order again, but maybe with a more custom design or try to figure out the quote situation better.
The best skin for a phone
Posted by Unknown on 1st Jan 2017
I've used Toast skins on several phones and they are easily my favorite case. For the Pixel, it's very comfortable to hold and adds a fair amount of grip. My only criticism is that the cutouts for the autofocus (and mic) are too small and difficult to clean since the adhesive used on the skin will pickup some lint when first installed. I've noticed some issues with autofocus while taking videos, I would buy a 2nd revision of the skin with larger cutouts for the three dots.
Posted by Cheryl on 31st Dec 2016
This case was a Christmas gift for my husband, and I can't say enough about it. It looks great and feels nice too. He has received so many compliments on it. Thank you Toast!!
Posted by Unknown on 29th Dec 2016
Recieved this case as a secret Santa gift. Very difficult to put on but very worth it, extremely comfortable in the hand and a good deal of grip
Posted by Unknown on 22nd Dec 2016
Very nicely created. Customer service is the BEST!
Fancy, but a little broken
Posted by Anthony on 19th Dec 2016
I love the product and the look. My one problem is that within the first week, one of the small squares of wood came off of the corner. I hadn't dropped it or anything, I guess it just wasn't stuck on as much as I'd thought, and putting it in and taking it out of my pocket made it come off maybe? If it weren't for that, I'd give the product a 5 rating. It's classy looking, and people notice it.
Looks great, fits perfectly
Posted by Jared on 17th Dec 2016
Really impressed with Toast wood skins. This is the 3rd I've installed and it's really not that difficult, just take your time and get the alignment correct. It looks great, and feels really nice in the hand. It also offers an impressive amount of protection. I dropped my Nexus 6P several times, even more than 5 feet onto concrete and other than some scuffing and damage to the wood, the screen was intact, and only minimal denting on the metal frame. Really happy with the skin.
Posted by dez on 7th Dec 2016
I didn't know what to expect, is this a skin ? is this a case? Its somewhere in between what ever it is i love it . Application was simple not nearly as daunting as it may initially seem and it has so far handled well.
Posted by Unknown on 5th Dec 2016
It obviously looks great. You can see that from the pictures. It was very easy to install, but I was concerned that it would be easy for the small folded corner pieces to peel up. That has not been the case(no pun intended.) Stays in my front pocket and I treat it like I would any other case, except this one is great looking and super thin.
Love the look!!!
Posted by James on 3rd Dec 2016
I have already had about 10 people ask about my phone and the cover it is sporting.. it is unique and no one has seen anything like it.
Posted by Unknown on 2nd Dec 2016
Love it. There is only one issue that I came up with - lighting detector sometimes goes nuts because of some dust stuck on it. Each time I put my phone into the pocket or take it out (without cover) my screen just cleans itself by fabric inside the pocket. Each time I do that with the cover all the dust and small fabric pieces stuck in lighting detector hole and this cause dialer switch off the screen even if the phone is in front of me (not next to my ear). It's not big deal to do 2 second leanings from time to time but it is the issue and I think the cover could be thinner just for this sake. Other than that, the cover is just beautiful and fits as it should. Custom image option makes this product even more attractive!
Posted by Steve on 30th Nov 2016
Unbelievable accessory product. This is just as good of a product as the device it covers. My only regret is I didn't buy one sooner. The cut is exact, not exact like the Amazon sellers tell you it is, but right on the money. The feel is amazing! Slightly, and only slightly, a bit thicker than a dbrand skin and significantly more streamline then the thinnest case you've ever put on a device. Toast has done a great job here! I can't wait to toast all my other mobile devices! Thanks Toastmade!
