The Pixel 3a may lack the fancy glass bodywork of the full-fat Pixel 3 but that doesn’t mean you want to avoid giving it the right kind of protection. With that in mind, we’ve pulled together a selection of amazing cases which are worth a look if you want to keep your phone in tip-top condition.
Pixel 3a Fabric Case
Google’s been producing fabric cases for its Pixel phones for a while now, and with good reason – they’re excellent cases that give you a premium feel as well as a good level of protection. At £35 they’re not cheap, but this is one of those cases where you get what you pay for. The fabric case is available in three different colour schemes, each with its own unique power button colour.
Olixar Attache Google Pixel 3a Leather-Style Case
Olixar is famous for its low-cost cases, but while this model keeps the reasonable pricing it doesn’t cut corners in terms of construction quality. Billed as a ‘premium executive-style’ case, it boasts a leather-like feel and a sturdy frame. While purists may accept nothing but real leather on their phone cases, this is a decent enough substitute that won’t cost you a small fortune to own.
Olixar Leather-Style Google Pixel 3a Wallet Stand Case
Wallet cases may be loved by your grandparents but they serve a practical purpose, too; not only do they protect the screen of your phone when it’s in your pocket, they offer the means to carry around your vital credit cards without using a bulky wallet. Olixar’s Pixel 3a effort also acts as a handy kick stand for those times when you want to watch a TV show or film.
Case-Mate Google Pixel 3a Twinkle Glitter Case
This one won’t be for everyone, but if you crave a little glitz and glamour in your mobile life then the Case-Mate Twinkle Glitter case is going to be right up your alley. With its eye-catching design, metal buttons and grippy texture, it manages to combine flashy looks with the impeccable level of protection you expect from Case-Mate.
i-Blason UB Pro Case For Google Pixel 3a
Ultra-thin but blessed with military-grade drop protection, this is the case for those of you who are serious about the great outdoors, but want to ensure your beloved phone is always in good hands. Granted, the design completely covers the lush lines of the Pixel 3a, but it’s not a totally unattractive look – in fact, we’re quite taken with the design.
