Best Google Pixel 5a cases 2021

The Google Pixel 5a packs a big battery into a very familiar design, and while it might look a little boring on its own, that's what cases are for: protecting your phone and making it look even better! The limited release of the Google Pixel 5a had me concerned we wouldn't see many big-name, high-quality cases, but those fears were unfounded. We've got the best Pixel 5a cases right here to help you protect your new phone, whatever your tastes prefer.

Sage colors, serene patterns

Caseology Parallax Compatible with Google Pixel 5a Case (2021)

Staff pick

Since the Pixel 5a lacks color options, Caseology has given us the best of the Pixel 5's colors along with its tried and true favorites. The Parallax features a fun cubist pattern across the back that adds grip and style. The bumper here has a new ultra-textured section, but some might find it abrasive.

Grippy and understated

Spigen Liquid Air Armor

If you want grip without a case that glows like a rave, Spigen's Liquid Air Armor is grippy, understated, and skips the carbon fiber accents, so many TPU cases tack on. The sides have a different texture that aids the narrower grip area, and there are slim air cushions throughout the case.

Be bold and sustainable

Google Pixel 5a 5G Case

Google's best known for its iconic fabric cases, but I've rocked this case for the last week, and I'm in love. There's good grip, it's got precise margins around the ports and screen, and the neon accents let the Google G pop. I paired my Likely Lime with a Neon Yellow PopSocket for added flair.

$29 at Google Store

Better for the planet

Pela Compostable Case

On top of being made with fair trade and certified eco-friendly materials, the Pela case is actually one of the smoother cases available for the Pixel 5a. No, I mean it! It's soft but still grippy, and no, it won't fall apart in your hands. Once you're done with the case, throw it on the compost pile, and it'll naturally break down.

Clean and clear

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

While there isn't much color or design to show off on the Pixel 5a, if you're still the type to prefer clear cases — maybe you put decals on them or stick your ID in there to always be handy — the Spigen Ultra Hybrid does clear cases right. The bumper has extra cushioning and two color options: clear or black.

From $14 at Amazon

Distinct carry-all

Ghostek Exec

Ghostek's heavy-duty cases can take quite the beating, but my favorite Ghostek case goes a step further by protecting your Pixel 5a and your wallet. The Exec features a detachable wallet so that you can easily carry it all when out and about, then ditch the extra bulk when relaxing at home.

$30 at Amazon

Wonderful texture

Caseology Vault

Google called the Pixel 5a Mostly Black, but I wish they'd picked the same hue as the Urban Gray Caseology Vault. It's an excellent hue, there's a good texture across the back for subtle grip without getting thick, and the sides feel very pleasant in hand.

$14 at Amazon

Protect it all

Sucnakp Case with Screen Protector

This killer combo gives you a nice absorbent TPU case with deep grip grooves and a screen protector to protect that 6.34-inch screen from scratches, scuffs, and chips. So if you need to protect your Pixel 5a on a budget, this is your winner.

$9 at Amazon

Fill and flip

HAII Leather Flip Folio

Available in four colors, this leather folio case can carry your Pixel 5a, your ID cards, and cash with ease. The Folio can double as a kickstand for watching YouTube in the breakroom, and an RFID layer is built in to help keep your credit cards from getting skimmed.

$11 at Amazon

Invisible and indestructible

Ghostek Covert

Clear cases and heavy-duty cases seldom mix, but Ghostek's Covert case series gives you protection while still showing off that ever-so-important Google G on the back. While it's also available in Pink and Smoke Black, the pure, clear one looks much better.

$15 at Amazon

Barely there

Latagui Hard Shell

Ultra-thin polycarbonate (PC) cases like the Latagui won't offer you much in the way of impact protection the way hybrid and TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) will, but if you just need a case that'll give a little more grip and avoid scratches, this slim case comes in a great blue, green, light pink, and black.

The best Google Pixel 5a cases add style and security

The Google Pixel 5a will likely be the last phone with this particular styling, which has become a bit stale after almost three years. Since the phone lacks pizzazz, it's up to us to add that in with a great case, and both Google and Caseology have brought the color and the style in spades. Google's own case is a pastel and neon gem, which can easily be leveled up with a matching PopSocket.

Caseology's Parallax brings us Pixel 5-like Sage Green and Midnight Blue alongside its iconic pattern and grip, but if that's not colorful enough for you, the KWMobile Fabric case offers up some striking shades as well. You can also go understated with textures instead with the Spigen Liquid Air and its triangular texturing.

While you're protecting the sides and back of the Pixel 5a, make sure you're also protecting the front with a sturdy screen protector. After all, nothing will turn your new phone into a paperweight faster than a shattered screen.

How to watch England vs India: Live stream Fourth Test cricket online

Having bounced back from defeat with an impressive win in the third Test at Headingley, Joe Root's men will be hoping they can now forge an advantage as the series moves to London - watch every ball of this fourth Test with our England vs India live stream guide below. England managed to dismiss India for just 78 on Day 1 in a scintillating bowling display, but there was even better to come from the hosts' top-order batting, with all of the top three managing to notch up half-centuries in their first innings. Skipper Root meanwhile continued his extraordinary 2021 form, clocking up yet another three-figure score. With a buoyant home side now hoping to carry on where they left off, India captain Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri must unravel how their attack was so routinely undone with the new ball last time out. Kohli himself will also need to do more leading from the front, with the normally reliably prolific batsman having scored no more than 55 during any inni

The last time the final at the Arthur Ashe Stadium was contested by two players yet to reach their 20s was when Serena Williams defeated Martina Hingis to take the title back in 1999 in a match that signalled a new era for the women's game.
