Google just shook up the smartphone game with the announcement of the Pixel 3a and 3a XL. Suddenly, owning a Pixel with Google's fast updates and excellent cameras is significantly more affordable (and tempting) for AP readers.

However, just because these new devices cost less doesn’t mean you shouldn’t baby them like you would any other phone. You know those plastic backs will be way too easy to scratch and scuff. The first step you should take to protect your new Pixel is to grab a dbrand skin. Rugged, resilient, grippy as hell, and cut to perfection, a dbrand skin enhances every device it’s applied to. It doesn't hurt that dbrand skins are quick and easy to apply (or to remove, if you want to change up your look).

As certified ‘made for Google’ accessories they are also the guaranteed to perfectly fit and complement your new Pixel smartphone, you can even choose to have a "G" logo cutout on your skin. With dozens of colors and textures to choose from on dbrand’s site, you are for sure going to find an option that you will love.

Even if you plan on using a case, applying a dbrand skin first will protect your phone from marring scratches and scuffs from the sand and grit that inevitably works its way under the case. For just $12.95, you really can't afford to not get a dbrand skin. Grab one for the Pixel 3a, or 3a XL today.
