This hybrid case comes in three dazzling color combinations — a deep navy blue, a lighter purple, and a darling coral/gold two-tone — and offers drop protection and grip in a compact profile.
This heavy-duty case comes with a screen protector built into the front frame, offering 360 degrees of protection for your new Pixel 4a. I also like the robust kickstand on the back that can be used in portrait or landscape.
Google’s fabric cases have long been a fan-favorite, but this year they get even more durable because the fabric is woven out of recycled plastic bottles. And when the case gets dirty, it’s also machine washable this year!
Ghostek’s clear case isn’t a dainty flower by any means, and the gel cushions can better help your Pixel 4a survive the oh-so-dreaded corner drops without cracking the screen. Three colors are available, including a cute pink.
With the Pixel 4a only launching in Black at first, I can understand wanting to add some color without adding bulk. The bold blue and emerald green are nice, but if you like a softer shade, there’s always Rose Gold.
I absolutely love the Studio Colour’s bold style, and while I wish we’d get a couple more colors here — maybe an inverse of the Black/Teal version — this is still an amazing thin case that’s more durable than it looks.
A slim profile and great grip have helped make the Spigen Liquid Crystal one of the most popular cases on the market for the last several years. The corner air cushions here don’t stick out, giving a more refined look.
There are millions of flexible TPU cases out there, but I like the Caseology Vault because the back panel has a subtle texturing to it that provides an excellent grip and a nice feel similar to leather.
If you prefer a clear case that will show off the minimalist stylings of the Pixel 4a, this slim case will add grip without obscuring that all-important G on the back of the phone.
Head Case Designs does a variety of different patterns, as well as licensed cases from brands like the NBA, Harry Potter, and a number of bands. This folio wallet is more subdued but still fits two cards and cash.
This Speck case may not have the signature wavy grooves on the back, but make no mistake this soft-feeling case is still grippy and durable. It also has a MicroBan coating, which can help fight bacteria on the case (just remember it doesn’t kill COVID).
This isn’t real leather, but in a case, that’s actually a good thing; this TPU-made faux leather should last a bit longer, especially against things like sweat. I like the blood red, but the more subdued blue is lovely, too.
If you need to defend your new phone on a budget, this combo from Huness offers up a slim TPU case with a grippy diagonal texture across the back with a film screen.
This is one of Spigen’s oldest case lines, and it’s still the one thouands swear by. The texturing on the sides adds some nice grip, and I’m happy to a differentiation in texture between the top and bottom accents.
