Google comes up with the new Pixel 4A, if you've seen other reviews about the phone already, you probably know how good it is. But I still want to share some of my thoughts on it. If you recall, the Pixel 3a was priced at Rs 30,999, $399 at launch, and Pixel 4 was priced at Rs78,999, $799 which was a significant markup over US prices. This time around, the Pixel 4a is priced at a very reasonable $349, Rs 26,300 and it even brings tons of improvements.
So let’s talk about some of those things. First of all, this is still a mid-range phone, so we’re still not getting a premium build quality, water resistance, or wireless charging. For a plastic phone, this feels pretty solid and unibody is clean looking, and the buttons have good tactility. The display is a huge upgrade over its predecessor, and perhaps better than even the Pixel 4. The viewing angle and colors might be tricolors behind Pixel 4, and it doesn’t have a 90Hz refresh rate or an ambient EQ feature, but outdoor visibility is better, which is more important. Then, because of the smaller bezels, the screen is a bit bigger overall, it’s just a more enjoyable viewing experience. By the way, we’re still getting a headphone jack here, and stereo speakers. It’s not quite as good as the ones on thePixel 4, but it is definitely above average, and something you don’t often find on midrange phones. The fingerprint sensor is still here as well, and I prefer it over Face Unlock for sure. It’s reliable, works with banking apps, and more convenient.
Specifications wise, again, massive upgrades here. Pixel 4A has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage which is double the storage that was on the Pixel 3A and the base model Pixel 4. But most importantly it’s using the faster UFS 2.1 instead of eMMC storage. There is a noticeable improvement in speed when loading apps and games.
The Snapdragon 730G here is decent in this price point though it is a well newer chipset. For regular day to day use, I have no complaints here, however, I do want to mention that, I like a few other phones I've tested with the 730G, I can’t turn on High Frame Rate mode for Mobile Legends, PUBG Mobile or Fortnite.
Battery capacity is slightly larger here at 3,140mAh, and even with slightly heavier usage, I can still make it through a day of use, which is pretty great for such a compact device. Software experience for mobile much as expected from Google. I don’t use a lot of the extra Google features, but I like it because of how clean it is, and the three years of timely software support. So I don’t even care that they removed the Active Edge feature.
Like with all Pixel camera performance is decent. It has only a single rear camera, but it's a really good one which is to say it might be even better than some flagship phones. But of course, the Pixel 4 still has that additional telephoto lens, so portrait mode and zoom quality are not quite as good. But I do prefer the slightly warmer photos from the Pixel 4a, and Super Zoom works well enough for taking macro shots or zooming in a little. The front camera is good when it comes to colors and dynamic range, but I think that the minimum focus distance might be a bit too far away, so for a lot of the shots that I took, my face seems to be slightly out of focus. I’m not sure if it’s the same for everyone or just this unit, but anyway it’s probably still fine for social media use. Video quality is really good as well with nice stabilization and dynamic range on both the front and rear cameras. So no complaints here. At this price point, I think this level of camera performance is pretty much unbeatable.
Google’s image processing is so good that all you need to do is just point and shoot. The Pixel 4a doesn’t do anything new. It’s the same formula as the Pixel 3a, with the main focus being camera quality. Just that this time around, the rest of the phone went from being just passable to being pretty good. I enjoyed using this more than the Pixel 4. It still has some compromises for sure, but it's a lot less than you would expect for a phone at this price point. So I think this just might be one of the best mid-range Android phones that you can buy today.
