No water resistance and no wireless charging, but Google packs the $400 Pixel 3A with the features that matter.


No water resistance and no wireless charging, but Google packs the $400 Pixel 3A with the features that matter.

The Pixel 3A is cheaper than the original Pixel 3 but packs the same grade-A camera that shoots great in low light. It can also record time-lapse videos and has a headphone jack.

The phone isn't water resistant and doesn't have wireless charging. Local storage is capped at 64GB, and Pixel 3A owners have unlimited uploads to Google Photos at a compressed high-quality resolution, not original.

If you want the latest software from Google and the ability to capture excellent photos, the Pixel 3A has the best camera for its price.

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: A question of compromise


When it comes to smartphones, it's easy to get caught up on the “more is best” treadmill. More megapixels, more gigabytes and gigahertz, more camera sensors... and more money, of course. Then along comes the Google Pixel 3a and slams the emergency stop...

Best camera in its class ; Very affordable ; Pure Android promises timely updates ; Design doesn't suffer for the budget ; All-day battery, despite the size

No waterproofing ; Wireless charging is missing ; Processor can't keep up with flagship phones

Some Pixel 3a owners can’t seem to update from Android Pie directly to Android 11


The Pixel 3a and 3a XL may have been superseded by the Pixel 4a — and recently released 4a 5G — but that doesn't mean they are not great devices. While they still offer a “premium” Pixel experience at a lower cost, it looks as though some Pixel 3a and...

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


With a flagship-caliber camera, the latest version of Android and great battery life, the Pixel 3a rewrites the rules of what a midrange phone should be.

, which offers a better processor, camera, design and display for $50 less. The 4a has rendered the 3a obsolete, sadly, especially because you can't buy a new Pixel 3a from most official retail channels anymore. That said, if you can track one down for...

Google Pixel 3a review: The phone made for everyone


For $399, you'll be hard pressed to find a phone that includes more for the money. The Pixel 3a brings the software and hardware features from its beloved premium line to a low price tag with only small hits to performance. If you can deal with small...

Comment: Google Pixel 3a at $250 makes a great last-minute smartphone gift


It may have been $230 earlier this week (as our friends at 9to5Toys spotted ), but you can still grab the Pixel 3a at Best Buy for $250 if you're willing to activate the phone today. While I think our gift guides have done a great job of rounding up...
