Just bought the black one, no issues, cheers OP for this bargain alert, thought I had missed the boat, just hope the camera is as good as everyone is saying.

Used an Eir sim I got online for free from Eir.

Would I be mad to buy one of these when I already have a Samsung Galaxy A50?

I just ordered again for the 6th time. All previous orders failed for various reasons. Ordered for store pickup. Seems to have gone through. At least this time I got an order number and email

Got this case for less than a tenner from Amazon (Prime).

iBetter for Google pixel 3a Case, Premium Soft Rubber Cover Shock Proof with Anti-Slip Ultra-Thin for Google pixel 3a Smartphone. Black https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07RZ8GS..._BXBlEbGJEZ6TM

After using Spigen before, they're over rated for the cost and they don't want to seem to deliver to Ireland for a fair price.

I have that case on my 3A XL, it's a perfectly serviceable case. Snug fit, accurate cut outs, slight lip to elevate the screen off a surface when face down. As sturdy as any tpu case.

this case for £5 is really good I've found and looks pretty cool on the black 3a

above the level of the front screen so protects for a fall on a flat surface.

material is more solid than the bog std jelly cases.

or get from here - €5.50 shipped

Unreal deal.

The camera has brilliantly resolved colours and dynamic range that delivers great photos daytime or nighttime.

And the rest of the phone is pretty good too.

If you value photo quality then it's a no brainer for the price.
