The budget-friendly Pixel 4a has only been around a short while, but an upgrade is already coming. If you plan to make the leap to Google’s new 5G-capable version, you’ll want to keep it safe from harm. After all, the larger display, dual cameras, and Snapdragon 765 chipset are meant to last you a long time. Here are our picks for the best Google Pixel 4a 5G cases you can buy.
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 into a slim case that still manages ample protection. 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 in case the worst should happen.
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 relies on raised bezels and the familiar Air Cushion technology for all-around protection.
Tudia Merge Pixel 4a 5G case
The Tudia Merge is one of our favorite hybrid options for the Pixel 4a 5G thanks to its slim build and bright color options. 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 what Tudia calls “Tough Rhino” technology. It’s a MIL-STD 810G certified case, and 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.
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 Tough Armor 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.
