    Hi Everyone. I have a 3A coming and was hoping you guys could help. Looking for screen protector and case that works well.
    Note this is my 2nd android phone, coming from the S7 Active, which I loved at first, and then grew frustrated with how slow it became and app performance.
    Anyways, any help would be appreciated.
    Are most of you using a case/screen protector?
    Regards..

    For screen protector I just ordered the Zagg when I ordered the phone. I picked up a Speck Presidio Grip from the Verizon store but now I'm using my Tech 21 Studio Design.

    I'm still wearing my Apple watch because I don't have notifications coming to it anyway.

    Do you like it? I thought I read that it doesnt offer much as far as protection from drops, specifically on the display side.

    I installed the ESR Tempered-Glass Screen Protector and the ESR Essential Zero Case on my Pixel 3a XL. Both were reasonably priced at Amazon. The case is transparent and fits the phone well. The screen protector fits well and was easy to apply. My only complaint about the screen protector is that it seems to pick up fingerprints more easily than the naked screen. I think both these products are available for the Pixel 3a. I do plan on ordering a case from Google once I receive my $50 Store credit.

    I got the ESR screen protector too. I liked how well it was to apply but like you said it attracts way too many fingerprints. Another thing I noticed was that I can BARELY see the screen in sunlight. I had no choice but to take it off. Will try another protector.

    I had that casemate case and just returned it actually. I found the sides super slippery and for $40 I figured it will yellow over time. I am getting the below screen protectors today from Amazon. Hopefully these are better than the ESR edge to edge ones.

    I bought a MoKo clear "Hybrid" case (TPU sides with a polycarbonate back) and am really liking it. I like having the PC back since it doesn't yellow over time and provides extra "rigidity" in the case (though it can scratch), while the TPU still provides drop protection. It also gives a nice "lip" to help protect the screen in case of drops. I'm impressed with it, particularly for a case that is going for $6.99 (and $5.99 atm with $1 off coupon).

    Thanks! I was just looking for a clear TPU case recommendation. Gotta show off the color! It's not available until May 31, so I'll have to be careful until then
