Not looking to break the bank, but you need all day perfomance, smart solutions and fully integrated Google tools? The Pixel 3A is your phone. With 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, an all day battery and fast charging will get the job done!
The Pixel 3a is a standard size phone with a 5.6" OLED screen at FHD+ resolution; it looks fantastic. That screen is driven by chips that aren't as fast as the latest top-line phones, but they still give you performance to spare and all-day battery life. The Pixel software has learning algorithms to identify what apps you use the most and shutter those that are less used, contributing to it's efficiency in both battery and performance. Continuing the Google tradition of an excellent camera in all of their phones even the midrange Pixel 3a comes with a 12MP camera. Interestingly for a mid-range phone, the camera offers both optical and digital image stabilization for the best photos possible! We'll take a deeper look at that coming up. Tied closely to Google, the experience is pure Android with no skins or 3rd party software to slow it down. You're also guaranteed 3 years of support from Google with the latest versions of Android.
The build of the phone is solid, featuring a matte polycarbonate back with glossy top. No worries about shattering the back of this phone if it happens to drop. The matte finish feels good in the hand and gives it some traction to prevent those unintended drops. The glossy finish looks good out of the box, although how long it will remain glossy in your pocket is yet to be seen. This is a phone that is cut out for getting the job done, not showing off it's logo. Centered in the back is an efficient and fast working fingerprint sensor to keep your data secure and prying eyes off your phone. The phone is equipped with the Titan M security chip - the same technology that Google uses in their datacenter servers - preventing malicious software from compromising your data as well. All in a price conscious 'mid-range' phone.
At just $399 full retail price, the Google Pixel 3a is a hard bargain to beat for a phone that will get the job done.
