Google Pixel 3a


Google's well-rounded Pixel 3a is quite simply the best Android phone you can buy for $399.

Best-in-class camera. Gorgeous OLED display. Solid performance. Excellent battery life.

Not waterproof. No microSD slot.

The Google Pixel 3a is an unequivocal win for midrange phone buyers, with good battery life, a lovely display, the latest Android software, and a best-in-class camera. No other $400 phone comes close to offering this level of performance and polish, so...

Google Pixel 3a Review: The Phone You Want for $400


The Pixel 3a is a steal for those who simply don't want to spend a lot on their next phone and still get a great camera. The specs are decent for the $399 price, and you don't have to deal with the usual carrier bloatware that you'll typically find on...

Flagship-caliber camera ; Google software and support ; Solid build ; OLED display ; Low price ; Excellent battery life ; Supports all carriers

No water resistance ; Performance is good, not great ; Display could be brighter ; No wireless charging

Buy it. The Pixel 3a has far and away the best camera, software and display you could ever hope to get in a $400 phone.

Google Pixel 3a teardown gives better repairability score, confirms Samsung-made display


Google's new Pixel 3a forgoes a handful of features to lower the price, and it seems those changes actually managed to make this phone easier to repair compared to most of today's flagships. In a teardown of the Pixel 3a, iFixit describes how this...

Google Pixel 3a review: everything in its place | AndroidPIT


Google tries its luck with the Pixel 3a in the middle class. How many losses do you have to accept for the lower price? Find out here.

For 400 dollars, the Pixel 3a is a damn good middle-class smartphone. On the software side pure Android, direct support on the smartphone itself and a three-year update guarantee. In addition, there is a top camera, where other manufacturers in the...

The $400 Google Pixel 3a Completely Redefines Great Bang for Your Buck


Last year, the Pixel 3 proved that it's possible to use software to create a thoughtful phone that's just as powerful, and sometimes easier to use than competitors crammed full of the latest high-end components. But for a phone that started at $800, it...

Google Pixel 3a Review: Early verdict – Budget camera champion?


Google Pixel 3a review: We've spent five days with Google's new £399 smartphone. Here's what we think about the camera, battery life and more.

The Pixel 3a doesn’t quite bring back the pure bargain-basement pricing structure of the brand’s once-fabled Nexus series. However, it does lower the barrier of entry for anyone wanting a fantastic camera on a smartphone.

Google Pixel 3a aims to bring the best of the Pixel 3 to a more affordable price point. Read our in-depth review to find out what survived the price cut...

Phenomenal Pixel 3 Camera ; 3.5mm Headphone Port ; Fast-Charging / Fast-Charger In The Box ; 3 Years Of Android OS Updates Guaranteed ; Unlimited Google Photos Storage

No Ultra-Wide Group Selfie Mode From Pixel 3 ; No Water Or Dust Resistance ; Wireless Charging Has Been Ditched ; Not As Powerful As Some Phones At This Price

Google Pixel 3a review


Unadulterated Android at an affordable price

Impressive low light photography ; Vibrant, dynamic screen ; Good value for money

Disappointing audio performance ; Rudimentary design and build ; Slightly underpowered

A fine phone for video and photography, it’s just a pity that the audio doesn’t quite match

Google Pixel 3a review


Google takes back the mid-range with a laser focus on simplicity

Fantastic camera image quality in all conditions ; Stock Android with guaranteed updates ; Brilliant all-round mid-ranger

Budget rivals have ditched display bezels ; Single camera not as flexible as multi-lens competition ; Plastic build not for everyone

Everything we loved about the Pixel, only cheaper. Rivals do more with design, but Google's incredible camera and pure version of Android largely make up for it
