Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase I like the colors and it works great. OtterBox is a good company, and the style is slim as opposed to the previous chunky versions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly fit Recently purchased an Otter Box Commuter for a Pixel 4a. The two-part cover was a perfect fit, performing it's function well. I am prone to dropping my phone, and have never had damage from a drop. We use Otter Box exclusively for our mobile phones and connected devices. Outstanding quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Phone Case!! I used a Commuter Series on a previous phone and once I ordered my new phone I knew I had to get the same case. I travel frequently and and my previous case had been through everything......this case is super durable, protects the screen well, and handle's drops with zero damage. Protects all ports from debris (though I noticed if you take it to the beach some sand will get under the case so it's advisable to clean it out once home. It adds a bit of bulk to the phone but it still fits easily into pockets and is totally worth it for the protection it provides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly heavy duty! I bought this case for my Google Pixel 4a. I realised that a Google case would cost the same, but be more for show. I wanted protection. I was bummed that Otterbox doesn't have a Defender option for this phone, but I must say I'm pleasantly surprised at how heavy duty this Commuter case is. I feel pretty confident if I accidentally drop the phone. Would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unusable with gestures The case is sturdy. However, gestures do not work, on account of the edges of the case being too high. For the 4a, swiping to move forward or back is not possible. I had to turn the '3 button' navigation back on. It's not the end of the world, but really disappointing. Otherwise, the case is sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What You'd Expect From OtterBox Tough, dependable and simple, it gets the job done and I can get back to being mildly irresponsible with where I leave my phone. My only real complaint: the color choices are terrible (I defaulted to black since the other options were clear, clear with stupid glitter, and vomit pink. Is it so wrong to want a cute OtterBox?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable durability Have used otterbox for past phones and happy with quality. This new otterbox for pixel 4a is sleeker and yet feels like the same quality durability of past chunkier cases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good This is a good protection from drops. It would be better if it had a belt clip and if it had a screen protector. It would be even better if it were available in more colors than plain black such as camo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cases but lame colors We actually won't buy phones unless there's an Otterbox case for them available, which does limit options. But while these cases are the best going, the lack of color options is absurd. Black or faded pink? Really? That's all we can choose from?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paid for itself on day 4 Paid for itself on day 4. I dropped my new phone and it landed corner first on concrete steps, without my Otterbox it would have probably broken. I wish they would get the screen protector for my Pixel 4a going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone protector without the weight After cracking my phone screen, I needed this Otter to protect my new phone. I was afraid it would make my phone clunky. I was pleasantly surprised to find the cover lightweight and adding minimal size to my phone. The edges around the screen will protect protect it from how I cracked my former phone. I love how the power and microphone protectors bend toward the back of the phone instead of toward the front. This makes connecting frustration free - i can see the ports! The color makes the phone easy to find in my purpose. From now on I will only use Otter box cases. There my not be a lot of color options, but protection is more important than glam!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's functional Have used it for a few weeks now. The case is much more slick than my previous OtterBox which had a more rubber texture was easier to hold onto. Also I didn't realize it didn't come with the built-in screen protector. That's on me. Other than that it's really not any better than any other heavy duty case except it cost more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color combination a bit off The color combination of maroon and pink is not the best look in my opinion. Luckily I also ordered a black version as well as the pink. My wife and I swapped the two housing pieces so her case is the light pink outer shell and the black rubber inner molding. This looks very nice. My case is now the black outer shell and maroon inner rubber. This looks nice as well. Even more so since it makes it look like a U of MN Gopher maroon case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has the Otter name, It has the Otter name, other than that it is unremarkable from cases costing a third of the price. The is no cover as there is with the Defender series yet it is priced similarly. It's a hard plastic and rubber combo just like all the others cases just with a bigger price tag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional, Simple, Useful I've been using this phone case for a couple months and it works very well. I slipped a small magnet between the hard plastic and the rubber for use with a magnetic car mount and it still lies flat on its back on a table. It looks great and works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same great quality I've come to expect from Otter I've used nothing but OtterBox Commuter cases on my last three phones. They protected the phones from who knows how many drops, and lasted the life of the phone each time. This new Pixel 4a case looks like it will perform the same way. Separate from all that, shipping was free and incredibly fast. That was much appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic as Always Once upon a time my phone (in a trusty OtterBox commuter case survived an auto crash after slamming into the windshield at 60 mph. Only a small crack in the corner of the case, and no damage to the phone. Since then I've always relied on OtterBox commuter cases to be slim enough to fit in my pocket and tough enough to trust in all my outdoor adventures. I especially like the port covers, which keep water and gunk out of the headphone jack and charging port. Worth the price for peace of mind, knowing that when it drops out of my pocket onto rocks, down hills, etc that it'll be just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Protection I LOVE how these cases protect your phone against stupid things like gravity and the occasional droppage and when using your phone as a coin to settle a coin toss (because who carries coins these days?. Seriously though, wonderful protection from drops and does not make your phone insanely bulky. Only thing that's missing is a screen cover to protect against face down drops when your phone lands on a pointy metallic object (5 stars if it had a face cover).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Solid Case Option I have had this case for the past month. Overall, the case has met my expectations. It feels sturdy in my hands (I haven't dropped it yet!. The buttons press well and have a solid feel. Port covers function properly and don't feel flimsy. The depression for the finger print scanner works really well. Two minor gripes: One, the case is bulky. it would be nice if Otterbox had other sleeker options for Pixel phones. Secondly, it would be great if there were other color options. Black was the only option. I have a "barely blue" phone color and a clear case option would have be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone case I've had this case for about a month. It is a nice looking case. I can easily access all the buttons and ports. I've been a customer with OtterBox in the past. I trust that my cell phone will be protected with this case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good so far! 1 Pink isn't my favorite, but a cool sticker on the back helps and it's not a "bubblegum" pink 2) Case fits well. I was worried it wasn't snug enough but after 2 weeks in very dirty pockets, I only found dirt between the layers, not on the phone 3) The raised edges do inhibit the swipe functions and sometimes feel in the way 4) The hinged covers on the ports make a big difference in keeping them functional, mine used to fill with debris 5) This pixel is a small phone that feels impossible to use without a case. This case is a little bulky, but it's smaller than many phones and still fits well in a pocket. It's grippy without being sticky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protection, less comfortable to hold and use This case does not feel as comfortable and secure to hold as my previous Otterbox case for an HTC One M7 phone. It has a large bevel on the back edge where my finger tip joint is, whereas the previous case has a sharper (but not too sharp corner which fits and locks into the joint. So this new case tends to slip out of the joint and my fingers squirm to find a place to "lock onto" the phone. Also, the front rubber edge is too high for this phone and prevents my finger from easily reaching the edges of the touchscreen. A shallower angle of the rubber, where it meets the screen is needed. deal breaker, as the case is well built and should offer great protection, but I am disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as good as they used to be Been using otterbox since I first got a waterproof case for an iPod and I just don't think they're as sturdy as they used to be. Some of this is probably a function of the changing shapes of smartphones requiring a lot more exposed areas to work. As someone who beats up their phone, I've always gone for the bulkiest case available, I'm not searching for something slim. And my current case now has decent bits snapped off of the case. BUT I will say for that my *phone* is still fully intact, so the case is doing it's job. Replaced the screen cover when I shattered it, and the case is still usable and protecting the phone with it's current missing bits. I definitely haven't found a better case at this point, but these new cases certainly aren't going to hold up for decades like those early iPod cases were able to do.
