The best Google Pixel 4a cases:
Editor’s note: We will continue to update this list of the best cases for the Pixel 4a as more are released.
Caseology’s Vault keeps the simple, sleek look that defines the Pixel 4a. It comes in matte black with a texturized TPU finish that’s easy to grip. The Caseology Vault uses a 1.2mm lip around the screen and a 2mm lip around the camera for some added peace of mind. Better yet, the Caseology Vault is MIL-STD 810G certified for drop-resistance.
If you’re dead-set on a thin case with a pop of color, the Anccer Colorful is tough to top. After all, colorful is right there in the name. Currently available in black, blue, green, and rose gold, the Anccer Colorful is an easy-to-apply polycarbonate option. It’s just 0.03 inches thick, and an 0.3mm lip protects the camera from drops. Anccer’s colorful case isn’t the most durable on the list but it’ll brush off the daily scuffs and scrapes.
The second option from Caseology adds hybrid protection and a unique triangular finish to the brand-new Pixel 4a. You can try the Parallax in Classic Blue, Coral Pink, Matte Black, and Google’s own Purple-ish finish. The case combines a soft TPU shell with a rigid polycarbonate bumper for MIL-STD certified protection. Precise cutouts also allow for easy access to all of the ports and buttons.
The thicker the bumper, the better the protection — at least that’s the philosophy behind Ghostek’s Covert case for the Pixel 4a. It comes with a built-in kickstand and it’s available in smoke, pink, and clear, but the thick TPU bumper is the real selling-point for this case. The bumper is designed with R2x shockproof technology that can brush off 8-foot drops according to Ghostek. Anti-slip grips around the edges mean that it should stay snug in your hand.
Poetic’s Revolution case finds its way onto many of our best lists because it’s one tough nut to crack. It offers full 360-degree protection with a beefy back panel and a polycarbonate lip that features a built-in screen protector. The Revolution isn’t the easiest case to add or remove, but that’s because the protection is just that tight. Even the back of the case doubles as a built-in kickstand for hands-free media streaming.
As the toughest name in phone cases, it should come as no surprise that Otterbox is rounding out our list. The commuter is another hybrid case with a soft TPU cover protected by a hard polycarbonate shell. it comes in classic black and Cupid’s Way Pink if you want to add a touch of color. Port covers keep dirt and debris away from the Pixel’s precious internals, and the case is thin enough to support wireless charging.
If the Commuter is Otterbox’s thunder, the sleek Symmetry case is its lightning. It’s completely clear and makes for a perfect option to show off your Google style. The one-piece design means that the Symmetry case is easy to apply or remove in seconds too. Instead of port covers, the Symmetry saves weight by using simple cutouts around the ports and a tactile cover for the volume rocker.
