If you just invested in a brand-spanking-new Google Pixel 4a 5G, you're going to want to protect your new, premium smartphone. The slim phone has a gorgeous 6.2-inch full HD+ OLED that requires protecting, especially since the device is not water-resistant. But you also want to maintain the sleek look of the phone. This is where a protective case comes in that will protect the device from bumps and scratches, and the best thin cases for Pixel 4a 5G won't add a ton of bulk.

Choosing the right Google Pixel 4a 5G thin case

If you're opting for a thin case for the Google Pixel 4a 5G, chances are you're doing so because you want to show off the sleek and sexy design of the phone. Since the phone is not water-resistant and has a large 6.2-inch full HD+ OLED screen, however, having a case that offers sufficient protection and doesn't just look good is critical.

The Caseology Skyfall (opens in new tab) is a solid option that balances good looks with military-grade protection. And it comes in two standard colors to suit your style while still working with wireless chargers without you having to remove the phone from the case.

To flaunt your personal style, the fun color options of the Crave Strong Guard Protection Series Case (opens in new tab) might be appealing, especially since the case itself also offers shock- and scratch-resistant protection.

Whatever case you buy, it's a good idea to also invest in a screen protector for the Google Pixel 4a 5G, and the Thinkart Phone Case (opens in new tab) actually comes with a pack of two so you have a spare or can give one to a friend or family member. The case itself is soft and flexible TPU and has a raised lip as well to further prevent screen scratches and cracks.
