At long last, the Pixel 3a is no longer a revolving door of leaks and rumors but an actual phone we can purchase and hold in our hands! While it looks very similar to the Pixel 3, it’s a bit taller and thicker so you’ll need a case specially made for it. The good news is that there are plenty available, and here’s our list of the best right now!
The differences between the 2018 flagship and the new mid-range Pixel’s are very slight from a physical standpoint, and technically you could fit a Pixel 3 case on a Pixel 3a, but depending on the button cutouts and how tightly fitted the case was originally designed, they might fit the slightly taller and thicker Pixel 3a.
That said, any Pixel 3 case would cover up the Pixel 3a’s headphone jack and I would really, really recommend getting a case designed for the 3a, as that will provide the best protection and won’t interefere with any ports/buttons.
Protect your Pixel!
The Pixel 3a may not be as expensive as the Pixel 3 or Galaxy S10, but that doesn’t mean it deserves to be left exposed as you go about your busy day in the concrete jungle! Whether you need a little light protection or want to lock your phone down against shatters and scratches, there is a case out there for you!
On the thinner side of the scale, it’s really hard to go wrong with the Totallee Thin Case and its slim, sleek protection, but if you need a case with a bit more padding in its petit package, there’s always the Spigen Rugged Armor. If you prefer a beefier case, Spigen’s Tough Armor is sturdy and secure, with a price tag to match.
