The Pixel 4a Review

Display

The phone you’re getting a 5.8 inch (14.73 cm) 1080p OLED display with flat-screen 60 hertz. And that hole punch cut out for the selfie camera some people don’t like the hole punch to me honestly really I’ve gotten used to it by now and it’s better than a notch. It’s not the most incredible display but there’s definitely no big issues with it you’re still looking at well over 400 pixels per inch and I’ve noticed a pretty decent range of brightness and some good viewing angles.  

Camera

A flash 12-megapixel sensor at f 1.7 with ois the numbers aren’t too crazy. But the photos you get are exactly what we’d expect right in the same style as pixel 4. If anything just a little softer but it has that confident contrasts high dynamic range look and great color.

That we’re used to from the pixel which is so awesome at this price night sight still spotless. I mean these are great photos for a 350 phone and thanks to that I’m totally fine with it being the single camera on the back like do I miss the ultra-wide a little. The depth sensor at all I mean with a single camera Google’s been doing fantastic portrait mode photos of animals and humans.

Performance

Like Pixel 3a performance on this phone is not that great. First I thought it was just me over realizing it because I just come from these super high-end 120-hertz phones but just having a 60-hertz phone shouldn’t be a death sentence for smoothness.

The snapdragon 730g is probably a lot more to blame here and I couldn’t stop noticing that it just wasn’t very smooth the phone just doesn’t feel fast. I guess is the main point which concerns me for how long it will last you know this is one of the bigger sticking points among a lot of the budget phones coming out.

When you extrapolate their value over time, kind of up against the gold standard of iPhone SE. Pixel 3a had which you know didn’t stop people from loving Pixel 3a as it’s still a great camera in a phone for the price.

8.5

For this price the lack of wireless charging or IP rating or glass and metal and stereo speakers and extra cameras. Really isn't a deal-breaker in fact it's expected the simple plastic build as expected the 60hz screen is fine. The biggest upside is still the camera and the biggest downside is still the performance. It's really just the only difference now is the existence of much more competition in this space with phones like oneplus nord and iPhone SE. Now technically this phone undercuts them both in price which is going to matter to a lot of people 350 bucks.

Pros
  • Great performance
  • Great cameras
  • Fantastic display
  • Headphone jack
  • 3+ years of software updates
  • Affordable
Cons
  • No IP rating
  • No wireless charging
  • Plastic body
