Pixel 3a: Google’s new budget device the pixel 3a and the pixel 3a xl features a 5.6″ inch Full HD display(1080 x 2220 pixels) which runs on Android pie. After the launch of pixel 3, Google decided to come up with a budget pixel phone for the users who want to experience pixel’s camera with a mid-range budget.
Generally, mid-range phones give high-end specs but to exclude itself from flagship it has to cut some corners like average display or the build quality, camera etc.. But pixel has done something different.
The new pixel has a poly-carbonate body unlike the pixel 3 which has a glass. This implies 3a won’t be having wireless charging and no IP rating. The device provides 2 speakers but here’s a difference, the pixel 3 has loud stereo speakers whereas in pixel 3a we will be getting a single front-facing speaker with a speaker vent at the bottom which can be blocked accidentally. It has bigger bezels compared to its parent.
Pixel 3a features an OLED FHD display. The display goes off axis when viewed from different angles. It’s not as bright as other displays out in the market.
It comes in three variants :
Wait, there’s one more thing. HEADPHONE JACK!!! Crazy right??
As always pixel’s camera is the main highlight. The primary camera is a 12.2 MP Sony IMX363 sensor just like the pixel 3. Unlike pixel 3 having dual front cameras, the pixel 3a has single 8MP selfie shooter. It almost gets all the features of the pixel 3 like Night Sight, Super Res Zoom etc.. The camera performance is good but not as good as pixel 3, and it manages to deliver crisp shots in most lighting conditions.
We won’t be getting similar performance to pixel 3 since it is powered by 670 processor and Adreno 615 GPU. This might be a little less snappy than a regular pixel, but you will get your job done. The 4GB of RAM isn’t enough for this device in recent times, it cannot hold more apps in RAM.

For the launch price of Rs. 39,999 the Pixel 3a feels a little bit expensive for what it offers to its customers. People who have camera as their priority or want to experience pixel’s camera can purchase pixel 3a or 3a xl without giving any second thoughts.
