4. ESR Essential Slim Silicone Case
Another solid clear case for the Pixel 3a is from the ESR Essential guys. Staying true to its name, this is an ultra-slim case, which means that it doesn’t add bulk to the overall look of the phone. Plus, the microdot pattern on the insides prevents the case from clinging to the phone, preventing your phone from getting the dreaded ‘wet look’ at the back.
The ESR Essential case has slightly extended corners to break the momentum of falls during accidental drops. The screen and the camera lens are protected from scratches, all thanks to the raised edges on the sides and the camera module.

5. Spigen Liquid Crystal
Up next, we have the Spigen Liquid Crystal case. The one for the Pixel 3a carries all the bells and whistles associated with clear cases. The lip running around the edges makes the rear camera sit flush against the case. At the same time, the case is slim and doesn’t add much bulk to the overall weight of the phone.
The only issue that some of the users on Amazon seems to have is the tight fit. Some users believe that the case is a little tight for the phone, thus skewing up the alignment of the cuts against the phone’s ports and the buttons. However, user Dan Yoon states that you will need some patience to align with the phone’s cuts precisely.
And once you achieve that, the Spigen case not only helps protect your phone from regular wear and tear but also from dust. The Spigen Liquid Crystal for the Pixel 3a retails at $9.99.
6. Supcase Unicorn Beetle Style Protective Case

The back is made of hard PC material, while the sides consist of flexible TPU material. What sets this case apart from the rest is its quirky color combination. There’s the classic combination of a black bumper against a clear back and a bright blue bumper against a clear back.
If you want your phone to stand out, the blue case will surely do the job for you. As for the fit, the Supcase UB case for the Pixel 3a fits perfectly. The buttons are easily accessible, and so are the ports and other cutouts.
The crux of this case is its slim profile. It does all the right things (bumper protection, screen, and corer protection) without adding considerable bulk to your phone. Moreover, the sides have a rubbery feel, which in turn helps in gripping the phone better.
