The Google Pixel 3a may not be as expensive as the Pixel 3 or other flagships, but it’s definitely not cheap at $400. To protect your new phone from bumps and bruises, opting for a case is the way to go.

Although there aren’t a lot of Pixel 3a cases available at the moment since the phone has just been announced, we did come across a few great ones that are worth your money — check them out below. Also if you haven’t ordered your Pixel 3a yet, do so as it’s available today!

Editor’s note: We will be updating this post regularly as new Google Pixel 3a cases are released.

The Spigen Liquid Crystal Pixel 3a case is a slim and transparent case, 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 spills. Considering the plastic design of the Pixel 3a is more prone to scratches and minor scuffs that are noticeable, this is a great case to keep protected while showing off the original design. You can get the case on Amazon for $11.99.

If you’re looking for complete protection for the Pixel 3a, it doesn’t get much better than the Otterbox Defender. This rugged case includes a solid outer shell, along with an inner softer lining that’s designed to keep the Pixel 3a safe from falls of several feet. It also comes with its own belt holster that can also double as a kickstand for some hands-free video watching. The Otterbox Defender Pixel 3a case is available for $60 and comes in black, purple, and something called dark lake. If you’re looking for something that isn’t as heavy duty, the Otterbox Symmetry case is a good option as well.

The fabric case that Google first introduced with the Pixel 2 series is now also available for the Pixel 3a. There are no bells and whistles here. A hard shell 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 also compatible with the Active Edge feature of the phone. The Google fabric case is priced at $40.


There you have it, folks. These are the best Google Pixel 3a cases in our opinion, although there are a few other great ones out there as well. We expect to see many more hit the market in the next month or so and we’ll make sure to add them to this post once that happens.
