The Google Pixel 3a is a solid mid-range phone, even if it’s mostly for reliving the ghosts of Pixel’s past these days. To protect your affordable little phone from bumps and bruises, you’ll need at least a decent case. The good news is that there are still plenty of excellent Pixel 3a cases available out there — as long as you know where to look.
The best Pixel 3a cases:
Editor’s note: We will be updating this post regularly as new Google Pixel 3a cases are released.
1. Spigen Liquid Crystal
The Spigen Liquid Crystal Pixel 3a case is slim and transparent, but don’t let that fool you — it offers plenty of protection. The TPU material is also easy to install and protects from both falls and scrapes. Considering the plastic design of the Pixel 3a is more prone to noticeable scratches and minor scuffs, this is a great case to keep protected while showing off the original design.
2. PHNX MNML Case
If you like thin cases, then you should consider the PHNX MNML Case for the Pixel 3a. As the name suggests, the case is as minimal as it gets, as it’s ultra-thin at just 0.35mm. It’s perfect for those of you who want to keep your phone’s look and add no bulk. Just be very careful with the MNML case if you have any tendency to drop your phone here and there.
The case comes in five different colors, including frosted black, frosted white, matte black, really blue, and red. Also, you can get 15 percent off with code: 15PX3
3. Spigen Rugged Armor
Spigen is one of the best case makers available, striking an outstanding balance between dependability and affordability. The rugged armor case features a matte black finish with carbon fiber highlights that looks great. The design is built with durability in mind, so it can take a knocking without damaging your phone. The case also features raised edges that help better protect the screen.

7. Google fabric case for the Pixel 3a
Google first introduced this fabric case with the Pixel 2 series, and it kept the ball rolling for the Pixel 3a. There are no bells and whistles here: a hardshell case is covered with a fabric that feels great and provides a lot of grip. The inside is also lined with a soft microfiber for extra cushioning. The case is compatible with the Active Edge feature of the phone as well.
