Google has traditionally competed in the high-end smartphone market with its Pixel series, so the Pixel 3a, introduced as an affordable alternative to the Google Pixel 3, is a notable shift in strategy for the company. Launched at Google IO 2019 alongside the Pixel 3a XL (the lower-cost version of the Pixel 3 XL), the Google Pixel 3a shoes the company is trying to expand its customer base by offering phones at a lower price point than its flagship devices.
With many features inherited from the Pixel 3, like its cutting-edge camera and Active Edge squeeze function to launch Google Assistant, the Pixel 3a seems a serious rival to its older sibling.
To look at, the Google Pixel 3a could easily be confused with the Pixel 3- it has a similar looking body with rounded edges and screen corners, and the same two-tone rear design, with the top of the phone, is reflective, whereas the majority of the panel is matted; however, on the Pixel 3 the material used for the rear is glass whereas here it’s plastic.
The similarities extend to the placement of the rear camera and flash on the left of the phone’s back panel, the volume rocker and power button on the right side of the handset, and the USB-C port at the bottom of the device. There’s also an extra port, and it’s a welcome addition- a headphone jack, which you won’t find on many mid-range phones. On the other hand, there’s only one front-facing speaker instead of two, so media played on the Pixel 3a doesn’t reach the bar set by Pixel 3.
At 5.6 inches, the Google Pixel 3a display is proportionate to the relatively small body of the phone- that’s to say, it’s rather small. If this is a problem for you, you can check out the Pixel 3a XL, but many people don’t need big-screen phones, and the Pixel 3a’s display is just right for everyday functions.
The display is Full HD+ and OLED, with a resolution of 2220x1080, and because of the relatively small screen size, the pixel per inch count is rather high at 441. This means media you stream, as well as pictures you take, can be viewed in more detail, although you’ll be hard-pressed to notice at such a high-resolution. The display has a rather limited max brightness and weaker colour reproduction, both of which are most noteworthy when streaming media.
Google deserves credit for bringing all of the key camera features of the Pixel 3 to its cheaper cousin. The Pixel 3a offers a single rear camera at 12.2 megapixels with an f/1.8 aperture, and it can do all sorts of tricks. That includes Night Sight, which allows you to capture great photos even in complete darkness, as well as bokeh Portrait Mode and Super Res Zoom, for a digital zoom that’s comparable with optical.
The Pixel 3a comes with a fairly small battery at 3,000mAh, though that’s still a bit more than you get from the 2,915mAh capacity of the Pixel 3. Coupled with the Pixel 3a’s processor, which features more cores dedicated for low power consumption rather than high performance, this phone can actually last quite a bit longer on a charge than its premium counterpart.
