Keep it safe

Tudia DualShield Merge Series

Staff Pick

Tudia’s Merge Series has been protecting Pixels big and small for years, and if you need some heavy-duty support for your Pixel 4a 5G from Day One, this case will do the job for less than a large pizza.

Fabulous feel

Google Fabric Case

Google’s fabric case feels just as amazing on the Pixel 4a 5G as it has in previous generations. This year, we have some fun color options like the Blue Confetti and the classic but ever so sophisticated Basically Black.

From $32 at Amazon From $25 at Best Buy

Two-tone texturing

Caseology Parallax

If you can’t settle on one cool color for your Pixel 4a 5G case, check out the Parallax, which gives you two fun colors in one case. I’m a sucker for the Burgundy/Rose Gold, but there’s also a two-tone Aqua Green that’s quite fetching, too.

From $14 at Amazon $19 at Walmart

Grip without grime

Spigen Liquid Air

The plastic chassis on the Pixel 4a 5G is easier to keep ahold of than glass-backed phones, but when your hands get sweaty, Spigen’s Liquid Air adds excellently grippy texture across the back and sides.

Kickstand for productivity

Supcase UB Pro

Available in Black, Slate Blue, and a darling Metallic Red, Supcase’s most rugged case series is here to protect your investment while also adding functionality in the form of a built-in screen protector and a kickstand that works in portrait and landscape.

$22 at Walmart

Heavy duty protection

Ghostek Covert

See the bright red strips in the corners of this case? That’s a shock-absorbing gel, which should help your Pixel 4a 5G survive 8-foot drops. There’s also a built-in kickstand near the bottom of the case.

Give it some pizzazz

anccer Colorful Series Ultra Thin

Like the Pixel 4a, we’re not getting any fun colors for the Google Pixel 4a 5G, so why not grab a colorful case to pick up the slack? The Colorful Series is so thin you’ll forget it’s there, but it still adds a bit of grip.

$12 at Amazon

Fit and felxible

X-Level Guardian

Available in three colors, this TPU case will hug every curve of your Pixel 4a 5G and add grip without adding bulk. While the anccer is hard plastic without any drop protection, the X-Level’s TPU adds at least a little impact absorption.

From $10 at Amazon

Pockets inside and out

Simicoo Vintage Leather Wallet

This folio case has slots for three cards and a cash flap inside, but you also get an extra card slot on the front of the case for cards you use most often, like a student ID.

$10 at Amazon

Clear-ly durable

Poetic Google Pixel 3a Rugged Clear Case

The Guardian Series is known for wild color accents — like the acid green version available here — but the black on black on clear of the Poetic Guardian lets you see the Google accents while still keeping the phone’s back and front safe.

From $19 at Amazon

Plush look

anccer Newborn Series

This leather-backed case gives you a rich feel on the back while still offering up the better grip and protection of TPU on the bumper. The Newborn Series comes in four colors, including red and a dashing blue.

$16 at Amazon

Old-school cool


There are few case makers in the world as well-known and well-trusted as OtterBox. The Commuter Series gives you dual-layer protection without being as ridiculously tank-like as the Defender or Defender Pro.

$31 at Amazon

All the pretty colors

kwmobile TPU Silicone Case

If you were wishing the Pixel 4a 5G would get that baby blue color like the Pixel 4a — or any color, really — kwmobile has you covered, literally. Available in 16 colors, this grippy little silicone case has at least one shade perfect for you.

$9 at Amazon

Clean and clear

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

Spigen’s hybrid clear case gives you the option to either get a completely clear bumper or a matte black bumper to hide the awkward angles you usually see on a clear case around the sides.

From $12 at Amazon

Extend your battery

NEWDERY Battery Case

The Pixel 4a 5G already has decent battery life on its own, but if you’re a power-user, chances are you’re still going to want a little extra oomph to keep it alive for longer days. This battery case doubles your Pixel 4a 5G’s capacity.

The best Google Pixel 4a 5G cases give you grip and glamour

The Google Pixel 4a 5G doesn’t get a sexy minty green color like the Google Pixel 5, but these cases bring plenty of style and add an extra layer (or two) of protection. The Tudia DualShield gives us cyan blue and rose gold while also being sturdy enough to last for years. Still, the Simisoo Vintage Leather wallet case has a deep teal, burgundy, and creamy tan if you’re after more subdued colors.

If your tastes skew more towards the soft and sustainable, the Google Fabric Case is made of recycled materials but still looks and feels fantastic, giving your phone great grip and protection without being just another plastic snap-on. This fabric is also machine-washable, so you can wash out the sweat and stains from whatever life throws at you and your phone.

Now that you’ve protected the back of your Google Pixel 4a 5G, make sure you grab a great screen protector to keep the Gorilla Glass intact and scratch-free.
