Best Google Pixel 4a 5G cases:
Editor’s note: We will update this list of the best Google Pixel 4a 5G cases as more become available.
Spigen Liquid Air Armor
Google’s brand-new Pixel 4a 5G is not a small device, coming in with a 6.2-inch display. For that reason, you may want to look for a slim yet tough case. Spigen’s Liquid Air Armor fits the bill. The texturized triangle pattern is easy to grip, so you never drop your phone. It’s a simple matte black TPU case, but Air Cushion technology helps to reinforce all four corners just in case.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid
Spigen is one of the most popular case makers around, and its Ultra Hybrid offers a step up over the Liquid Air Armor in terms of protection. It’s a clear hybrid option with a tough polycarbonate back panel and a flexible TPU bumper around the edges. If you’re not sold on the crystal-clear finish, there’s also a matte black bumper available. The Ultra Hybrid combines raised bezels and the familiar Air Cushion technology for all-around protection.
Tudia Merge Pixel 4a 5G case
Thanks to its slim build and bright color options, the Tudia Merge is one of our favorite hybrid options for the Pixel 4a 5G. You can grab yours in black, blue, rose gold, or Metallic Slate to match some of your other devices. The Merge combines a soft TPU inner lining with a rigid polycarbonate exoskeleton for Tudia’s “Tough Rhino” technology. It’s a MIL-STD 810G certified case, so you should be able to brush off both drops and scratches.
Spigen Rugged Armor
Jumping back to yet another Spigen option, the Rugged Armor is a simple TPU bumper that adds very little bulk to your Pixel 4a 5G. It comes in a simple matte black finish with carbon fiber details for added style. You should have no problem applying and removing the case in just seconds, thanks to the flexible construction. The Air Cushion technology, on the other hand, should keep your Pixel safe from harm.
PHNX MNML Case
If you want to preserve your Pixel 4a 5G look and feel, you should consider the PHNX MNML Case. At just 0.35mm thin, you’ll barely even notice that you have a case on your Pixel phone. The case works with wireless chargers, is branding free and has protective camera cutouts. The PHNX MNML Case sells for $27 and is available in 3 colors, frosted black, white, and matte black. Right now, you can get 15% off your order with the discount code 15AA at checkout.
Ghostek Covert Pixel 4a 5G case
If you want to show off your new Pixel, but you don’t want to sacrifice a single ounce of protection, the Ghostek Covert is a great pick. It’s a rugged clear option with a very thick bumper on all sides. All four corners are thoroughly reinforced, and the Covert includes a durable metal kickstand for hands-free streaming. You can grab yours now in clear, pink, or Smoke Black.
Spigen Tough Armor
Our last pick from Spigen is also one of the toughest Pixel 4a 5G cases around. It goes by the name Tough Armor, and it offers serious security with a thick TPU bumper and a solid polycarbonate shell. The case comes in both black and Gunmetal, and it makes the most of Spigen’s signature Air Cushion technology. If top-notch protection isn’t enough, the Tough Armor also has a built-in kickstand for media streaming.
When you think of a tough, adventure-ready case, there’s a good chance that Otterbox springs to mind. The Commuter is a perfect example. It’s a two-piece hybrid beast with port covers and a rigid lip to lock your Pixel 4a 5G in place. It’s available in black and pink, and you can bundle your Otterbox with a series of other accessories. Otterbox even tests all of its cases three times beyond the MIL-STD 810G rating, so you know it can handle drops.
