The aptly named Spigen Thin Fit is one of the best thin cases you can get for the Pixel 5a. The polycarbonate shell case is form-fitted and snaps onto the phone with ease. Button covers add a little more protection than previous versions of the case, and a raised lip keeps the display and rear camera glass safe. You get precise cutouts for everything else, like the charging port, headphone jack, and fingerprint scanner.

Other options you might like:

  • Spigen Rugged Armor: This fan-favorite Spigen case is a great buy if you want more protection than the Thin Fit without compromising on size. It’s thin and lightweight but utilizes Air Cushion technology to keep the phone safe. The carbon fiber elements add a touch of style, while ridges along the sides add grip.
  • Caseology Parallax: The Caseology Parallax features a dual-layer design that combines TPU and polycarbonate. It’s still relatively thin but provides military-grade drop protection. The back’s geometric design looks great, and the textured finish helps with grip.

The best clear Pixel 5a case: Spigen Ultra Hybrid

The Spigen Ultra Hybrid combines a polycarbonate back with a soft TPU bumper for added protection. Like other Spigen cases, you get a raised lip to keep the display and rear camera safe, the buttons are covered, and the case uses Air Cushion technology to ensure the phone survives drops. If you’re looking to show off the phone’s design, this completely transparent case is the way to go.

Other options you might like:

  • Otterbox Symmetry: If you’re looking for a clear case that also provides rugged protection, the Otterbox Symmetry is the case for you. It offers the safety you’d expect from Otterbox cases while showing off the phone’s look.

The Hoomil wallet case won’t look out of place in a boardroom. This classic folio case is made with premium faux leather and comes with two card slots and a cash pocket. The case locks with a magnetic clasp, and you can fold the folio cover and make it a kickstand for hands-free viewing.

Other options you might like:

  • Vena vCommute: The Vena vCommute comes with a rear-mounted design, so you don’t get the folio cover of traditional wallet cases. However, a multi-angle lock stand provides the same kickstand functionality. The case comes with enough room to hold up to three cards.
  • Ghostek Exec: The Ghostek Exec comes with a detachable wallet that can hold as many as four cards. The case has shock-absorbing bumpers for extra corner protection but is thin enough to let you wirelessly charge the phone.

The best rugged Pixel 5a case: Otterbox Commuter

The Otterbox Commuter is the case to get if you’re looking for rugged protection for the Pixel 5a. The case combines a soft inner cover and a hard outer shell to keep the phone safe from accidental bumps and drops. Port covers keep the charging port and headphone jack from dirt, dust, and lint. A new addition to the Commuter range is that the case is also infused with a silver-based additive that protects the case’s exterior from many common bacteria.

  • Spigen Tough Armor: The Spigen Tough Armor offers dual-layer protection with a soft TPU core and a hard polycarbonate shell. The case features a MIL-STD 810G-516.6 certification for drop protection. It also has a built-in kickstand that lets you prop the phone up in the landscape orientation.
  • Caseology Legion: Like the other rugged cases, the Legion combines a TPU inner layer and a polycarbonate shell to keep the phone safe. Ridged sections along the sides of the case help with grip as well. Despite its heavy-duty protection, you will still be able to wirelessly charge the phone with the case on.
