The Google Pixel 6a delivers a lot of phone for a very tempting $449 price tag. If you're looking for a new smartphone with power, amazing camera capabilities, and a snappy new design, you can do a lot worse than the Pixel 6a. But despite its cut-price nature, you'll still want to keep it safe.

That's where a protective case comes in. From a basic gel case to a wallet case to a full-on rugged protective cover, a case can go a long way to protecting against scratches, chips, and even drops. But not every case is right for you. Here's a list of some of the best Google Pixel 6a cases currently available.

Looking to protect your new phone's screen? Check out our picks of the best Pixel 6a screen protectors around.

Official Google Pixel 6a Case

Pros
  • Simple, stylish protection
  • Raised edges for superior drop protection
  • PC shell made with 75% recycled plastics
Cons
  • Only two colors to choose from

Protecting your new phone should be simple, like this Pixel 6a case from Google. Available in a choice of two colors, Charcoal or Seafoam (a cool minty green), it's specially engineered to perfectly fit the Pixel 6a. Raised edges provide superior drop protection, and the PC shell is made with 75% recycled plastics — the case is made with over 30% recycled plastics by total weight. Who says you can't protect your phone and the planet too?

Crave Dual Guard Case

Pros
  • Compact, pocket-friendly profile
  • Dual-layer protection
  • Choice of nine colors
Cons
  • Some reviews say the buttons aren't great

Crave's Dual Guard Case is a must if you're looking for colorful yet durable protection for your Pixel 6a. Available in a choice of nine shades, we love Shaded Spruce (pictured), a deep, dark forest green. Style aside, this dual-layer TPU and PC case has plenty of substance, with a slim, pocket-friendly profile, excellent shock absorption, and increased grip control, plus easy-click side keys and easy access to ports. For $15, it's premium protection for your phone at a less-than-premium price.

Ghostek Covert 6 Clear Case

Pros
  • Up to eight feet of drop protection
  • R2X reinforced shockproof corners
  • Non-slip coating adds grip
  • Clear, minimalist design
Cons
  • Design may not be to all tastes

This ultra-thin clear case from Ghostek shows off your Pixel 6a with a pocket-friendly profile that adds minimal bulk to your phone. The crystal clear scratchproof back is made from silicone, with an anti-yellowing coating to keep your case looking as good as new. Impact R2X reinforced corners boost the military grade drop protection, ensuring this case can withstand drops up to eight feet. There's also a non-slip coating that adds grip, raised bezels around the screen and camera to ward off scratches and dirt, and button covers and precise cut-outs for the phone's ports and features to round off the package. This case comes in a choice of seven colors, too.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Series Case

Pros
  • Superior drop protection
  • Built-in screen protector
  • Kickstand for hands-free viewing
Cons
  • Rugged style may not suit all tastes

If you're the type of person who's always dropping your phone, this case from Supcase is the one for you. Its dual-layer TPU and PC construction offers superior drop protection, with a built-in screen protector to keep your Pixel 6a's screen safe from scratches and scuffs. The integrated kickstand folds out for hands-free portrait or landscape viewing, with a detachable rotating holder and precise cutouts for ports. The rugged style of this case may not be to all tastes, but we think it looks pretty cool.

Kwmobile Slim Case

Pros
  • Slim, pocket-friendly profile
  • Smooth finish hides dirt and fingerprints
  • Choice of 10 colors
Cons
  • There are better options for drop protection

Always slipping your phone into a pocket? Then the Kwmobile Slim Case is an excellent, pocket-friendly choice. Its slim profile packs protection for your Pixel 6a, with its soft silicone coating that cushions your phone from shock and falls. There's a microfiber lining that keeps your Pixel 6a safe from scratches and a raised lip around the screen for extra protection. The silicone finish is smooth to the touch yet designed to hide fingerprints and dirt. This case also comes in a choice of 10 colors, including our pick, Bordeaux Violet, a deep burgundy. If you're looking for the ultimate drop protection, this may not be the best choice for you — we recommend one of the rugged cases on this list instead.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case

Pros
  • Clear and stylish
  • Strong dual-layer construction
  • Good price
Cons
  • Lacks rugged protection

Spigen is a name you can rely on, and we're excited to see it release a bunch of different cases for the Pixel 6a. But we always love a good clear case, and it's hard to get a better clear case than Spigen's Ultra Hybrid. It's made from absorbent TPU and hard polycarbonate, giving it strong resistance to minor bumps and drops while also protecting against scratches and other hazards. The clear style means you can see your phone at all times, and the slim and lightweight design means your phone doesn't feel bigger or heavier. Best of all, it's available at a great price.

Osophter Slim Case

Pros
  • Rock-bottom price
  • Decent protection
  • Slim and stylish design
Cons
  • Lacks more serious protection

This dual-layer case from Osophter is good if you want protection that doesn't add a large amount of bulk to your slim smartphone. It's made of TPU and polycarbonate, so it's good against scratches and scrapes while also providing decent drop protection with the TPU's shock-absorbing qualities. A raised lip protects the display and camera lenses, and there's extra protection for the otherwise vulnerable camera bar, too. It won't work if you're looking for something more heavy-duty, but it's a great choice if you want some solid everyday protection.

UAG Scout Case

Pros
  • Strong and rugged
  • Minimalist and lightweight
  • Military drop standards
Cons
  • Not the most exciting design

Minimalism and protection aren't usually specs that go hand in hand, but it's what UAG's Scout case specializes in. It's made from TPU, but that doesn't mean it's not super tough. It meets military standards for drop protection, has a raised edge for the cameras and display, and despite all that, is lightweight too. There's an anchor point for lanyards and other straps, and the antimicrobial coating means it won't pick up germs during your daily use. The price is on the higher side, but it's not unreasonable for this quality. However, it certainly lacks style, which could put you off.

Olixar Leather-Style Wallet Case

Pros
  • All-around protection, including for the screen
  • Great-feeling leather-style material
  • Room for cards and cash
Cons
  • Adds thickness
  • Leather-style material can feel a little cheap

Wallet cases are a great way to add some style and class to your smartphone. There are few places a good wallet case looks out of place, and this case from Olixar ticks all the right boxes. The screen cover keeps all of your phone protected, so you can sling it into a bag or pocket as you like, and it folds back behind the phone during use. It can even be used as a smartphone stand. There's room for credit cards, tickets, or spare cash, and the leather-style material looks good even if it can feel a little cheap. A good choice at a great price.

Otterbox Commuter Antimicrobial Case

Pros
  • Strength that won't quit
  • Antimicrobial coating
  • Lifetime warranty
Cons
  • Expensive

Want the most protection you can get? Right now, that's why you reach for Otterbox's cases. The Commuter case is the more stylish of the cases on offer, but that doesn't mean it's ratcheted down its protective qualities. A soft inner slipcover combines with a hard outer shell to absorb impacts and deflect other threats, and port covers help to protect those vulnerable areas from dust or dirt ingress. It's rugged but still thin enough to be pocket-friendly, and the antimicrobial coating helps to stop bacteria growth on the outside. Unfortunately, it's also one of the more expensive cases out there — but thankfully, there are still options for that.

Poetic Guardian Series Case

Pros
  • Strong and protective
  • Included screen protector
  • Clear back
Cons
  • Unique style may put off the fashion conscious

It's the case that started off a new bunch of rumors, but the Poetic Guardian is still worthy of your attention if you're looking for a strong, protective case. It has raised front lips to protect your phone's display and camera lenses, and there's a built-in screen protector faceplate as well — though you can leave it off if you prefer. Drop protection has been military-graded, and the grippy sides help you keep a hand on your device. It's not really stylish if you want that, but it's cheap (for a rugged case) without compromising on quality. A good choice if you need a budget-friendly tough case.

Caseology Parallax Case

Pros
  • Popular design from a well-known brand
  • Has textured TPU grip
  • Has raised bezels for protection
Cons
  • Comes with a high price tag

Fans of the popular 3D Hexa Cube design will love this new Caseology Parallax case designed especially for Pixel 6a. It's ergonomically built with a textured TPU grip on both sides. With military-grade protection, it will keep your phone safe, while the raised bezels around the screen and camera ring offer additional security. It's case compatible and available in three classic colors.

Anccer Slim Case

Pros
  • Bright colors
  • Camera protection
  • Slim and case-compatible
Cons
  • Doesn't offer the best protection

Love bright colors? You'll love this Anccer case. Available in a bunch of attractive colors, it's eye-catchy for sure. But that's not all. It's made of premium silicone material to offer a skin-smooth feel and a non-slippery grip. The case also protects your camera lens from scratches so you can enjoy your photography session without worrying about damaging the camera. It's also slim and case compatible so you can use your phone hassle-free.

The best Google Pixel 8a screen protectors in 2024
The Google Pixel 8a's screen.

The Google Pixel 8a is Google's latest smartphone. While it's not a match for Google's flagship phones, the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro, it's not meant to be. The Pixel 8a is a midrange powerhouse with the Tensor G3 processor, a showstopping camera, and the advanced smarts of Google's Gemini Nano AI model.

But none of that matters if you can't see it. The display is a vital part of any smartphone, and the Pixel 8a's 6.1-inch OLED panel is a beauty. It has a 120Hz refresh rate and a high brightness, making it comparable to some of the best phones in the midrange market. However, all that tech should be protected. Here are the best Google Pixel 8a screen protectors to keep your phone's screen safe from scratches, dirt, and smudges.

Google's Pixel A range has dominated the midrange smartphone market for years, and there's no sign of that changing anytime soon. The newest addition is the Google Pixel 8a, featuring Google's Tensor G3 processor, a 64-megapixel primary camera lens, and all the usual AI-powered camera features. Notably, it's also the most affordable smartphone to include Gemini Nano, Google's groundbreaking AI model.

However, even with advanced technology, phones are still susceptible to physical damage from scratches, drops, and dirt. To keep your phone safe, a protective case is essential. Fortunately, there are plenty of options available, even for a new device like the Pixel 8a. Here are some of the best Google Pixel 8a cases you can purchase now.
