In terms of design, the Pixel 7a manages to (almost) perfectly mimic its slightly more premium sibling, the Pixel 7a. Google’s new mid-ranger doesn’t kid around when it comes to looks, and the 7a comes with the visual flair that made the Pixel 7 series stand out in terms of branding and identity – the metallic camera visor, clean angles, and slim profile all make for one sharp-looking handset.
Google Pixel 7a
The Google Pixel 7a features impressive camera performance, Google's smart software features, and access to all the latest Android apps, all in a compact and attractive design.
With that being said though, one consideration about the Pixel 7a is that while it comes with a metal frame around its chassis and a Gorilla Glass screen, the phone’s back is made of plastic, which depending on who you’re talking to can seem a bit less “premium.” This does make the phone somewhat prone to scratches, and it’s in times like these when we’d recommend using a case.
As such, we’ve compiled a quick list of cases with slim profiles that don’t add a lot of bulk and thickness to your phone, and instead focus on keeping it safe from scratches, scuffs, and bumps. If you’d like to check them out, you can click on the links that are provided below – let’s take a look!
