Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL review

 

The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are Google's latest phones, and their key selling point is that they bring the same exact software and camera experience from the Pixel 3 and 3 XL to a much lower price point -- $399 and $479, respectively. You also get...

Smart and helpful software, speedy updates ; Great performance ; Fantastic camera ; Relatively affordable pricing ; Good battery life

A class-leading camera at half the price? Just buy the Pixel 3a already

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.

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: a $399 phone with a great camera

 

At $399 and $479, respectively, the Pixel 3A and 3A XL are great deals.

Low price ; Excellent camera ; Clean Google version of Android

Slow processor ; No wireless charging ; Not water resistant

But I do know this: I have been waiting for Google to make this exact phone for something like five years. Google used to make phones that were ridiculously good for the price. 2013’s $349 Nexus 5 is still the pinnacle of an inexpensive, excellent...

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

Google Pixel 3a & 3a XL Review

 

The Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are an off-shoot of the company's flagship smartphones (Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL) that are touted to deliver similar experiences at the fraction of the cost.

Great camera performance under ideal situations; Long lasting battery life (especially the Pixel 3a XL); Fast recharge times; Responsive actions around the interface; All the trimmings of stock Android

Graphics processing can be challenging; Video performance under low light is underwhelming; No 60 fps video recording

Pixel 3a vs. Pixel 4a: Worth the upgrade? [Video]

 

Much like the potential upgrade path from the Pixel 4 series to the Pixel 5 , suggesting that someone shoul09d “upgrade” from the Pixel 3a to the Pixel 4a is a bit silly. Despite maybe being a little overdue, we're here to examine whether this might be...

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...
