Google Pixel 5a 5G review

Large and super-bright OLED display

Limited market availability and only one color and storage option

Google's Pixel 5a 5G has imposter syndrome out of the box: Google doesn't believe that it's worthy enough to compete in markets outside of the US and Japan. The Pixel 5a 5G is a great phone with excellent battery life, a great camera, snappy software,...

Google Pixel 5a 5G Review: A modest upgrade to the camera powerhouse


The Google Pixel 5a 5G brings some minor upgrades to the table with IP67 and a bigger battery, while keeping clean Android software and capable cameras.

“The Pixel 5a continues to live up to its camera expectations, offering smooth performance, punchy photos, and lowlight capabilities on a budget.”

Google Pixel 5a With 5G Review


Durable ; Crisp OLED display ; Best-in-class cameras ; All-day battery life

Lacks a zoom lens ; Mediocre speakers ; No mmWave connectivity

Powerful performance, an immersive OLED display, a large battery, and an incredible camera stack make the Google Pixel 5a with 5G the best midrange phone you can buy.

Google Pixel 5A review: boring, but better than ever


Strategic updates that keep it at the top of the class.

IP67 water resistance rating ; Much improved battery life ; Camera still at the top of the class

Limited availability ; Lacks software-level C-band 5G support ; Good but not class-leading support policy

The Google Pixel 5A gets some strategic upgrades, including an IP67 water resistance rating, bigger 6.34-inch screen, and a larger battery, making a good midrange phone even better.

Pixel 5a review: Pixel 4a 5G remastered


Google's Pixel 5a is the most impressive A-series yet on paper, but there are flaws

Strong battery life ; Bundled fast charger ; Excellent camera performance ; 3.5mm headphone jack ; Water-resistant

Disappointing performance ; Outdated design ; 60Hz display

The Pixel 5a is a solid replacement for last year’s Pixel 4a 5G, but a couple of missteps undercut its upgrades.
