Tech giant Google is well known mainly for its world-class search engine. But Google is also a big software company who like to experiment with new things and ideas. Google releases its pixel phone line up every year late September. But their mid-range segment is more famous from their flagship line up. So like the previous years google recently announced their pixel 3 a successor pixel 4a
Why pixel a line up even exists?
Its been about four years since google is making their pixel phones. They are surely a good phone with excellent camera performance, especially in low light photography. Still, it is not a complete attractive package because there are other balanced phones out there in this price range .so Google decides to launch a mid-range series pixel a line up with the same flagship-level camera quality.
Like every other year pixel 4a comes with a mid-range processor .now let’s run through some key specification:
- Snapdragon 730g (8nm)
- 81 inch 1080*2340 pixels OLED display 60 Hz with HDR support
- 2 MP f/1.7 back camera and 8MP f/2.0 front camera
- Bluetooth 5.1
- 3140 mah battery with type c 18 w fast charger
- 6gb ram
- 128 GB UFS 2.1 storage
These are the main specification. The phone also comes with Gorilla Glass three, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, stereo speaker and so on.
the new pixel phone looks good, and it’s a unibody phone. Though the phone is made out of plastic, the phone doesn’t feel so cheap in hand.the phone is compact, so one hand usability is good. The battery lasted about one day in regular daily usage. Despite its lower capacity battery, the phone continued long because of its 60 Hz refresh rate and small form factor with lower screen resolution.The snapdragon 730g is a mid-range and relatively power-efficient processor.it is based on 8nm .so we can expect power with lower battery consumption. The pixel is unique for its clean software experience. Like all other pixel devices, pixel 4a comes with pure stock android. The cleanest bloatware-free android experience only can be found in pixel devices.
The camera is always the main priority for the pixel devices. It brings the flagship type of camera experience in a lower budget. Pixel 4a takes a good shot in both low light and in daylight.This is the best camera phone in this price segment, no doubt for sure.
If we compare it against the other same price range phone like 50 dollars more, I phone se we will get a better result in photo mode. Pixel 4a have dedicated night mode which brings fantastic low light photography while I Phone SE 2 doesn’t have any night mode build in
So it is undoubtedly the camera king in this price range.
In day to usage, the pixel does a pretty good job, but when it comes to gaming it lacks behind because of this mid-range chipset.you can play the high demandable game like PUBG mobile in medium ultra frame rate.
- Great camera
- Good battery life
- Small form factor
- OLED panel
- Stereo speaker
- Headphone jack
- One hand usability
- Plastic body
- Easy to scratch
- Corning gorilla 3
- Average gaming performance
- No IP rating or wireless charging
- No high refresh rate screen
At the end of the, it all comes to personal preference and self-use case. Because one should buy their product according to their choice or use case, people who need a good camera can go for it for sure. I don’t think anyone will disagree with its amazing camera performance. Overall it is a good deal indeed. But people who need great hardware and the feel of apple can go for I phone se.but the competition in the price range encourage the companies to push their limits. We consumer will be pleased to see more option.
