Google Pixel 4a: Design

The Google Pixel 4a is the latest and one of the most affordable smartphones from Google from the last few years. The smartphone comes with a plastic polycarbonate body and looks like a cheap smartphone from 2018. It has a rear-facing fingerprint sensor and also retains the 3.5mm headphone jack. The device has a 5.81-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution with a tiny punch-hole cutout at the top. This is a regular 60Hz panel and it does offer a good amount of brightness and the colors look punchier, similar to some of the mid-range smartphones that are priced around Rs. 30,000.

Google Pixel 4a: Hardware Performance

The Google Pixel 4a is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, which is a bit old processor. This octa-core processor offers a peak CPU clock speed of 2.2GHz and also includes the Adreno 618 GPU for gaming and graphical requirements. The smartphone comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage and the device does not have a microSD card slot. It does support dual SIM cards with a single physical nano-SIM card slot and an eSIM slot.

Google Pixel 4a: Camera Performance

If there is one reason to get the Google Pixel 4a, then it is the camera performance. The device has a single 12.2MP primary sensor with OIS with support for 4K video recording. The Google Pixel 4a is one of the best mid-range smartphones when it comes to camera capabilities and is capable of taking great photos under any lighting conditions. The smartphone does have an 8MP selfie camera with support for 1080p video recording. However, do note that the device does not have a dedicated telephoto or an ultra-wide angle lens which limits the perspective of a photographer.

Google Pixel 4a: Price To Specs Ratio

Considering the design and build quality, the Google Pixel 4a feels like an overpriced smartphone, especially when compared to the OnePlus Nord. As per the computing capabilities, the Google Pixel 4a is nowhere near the iPhone SE 2020, powered by the A13 Bionic processor.

Google Pixel 4a: Important Features/Highlights

Another highlight of the Google Pixel 4a is that it runs on stock Android UI and is promised to get software updates for two years and security updates for three years. The smartphone also has a 3.5mm headphone jack that can also be considered as one of the highlights of the smartphone. However, it has a smaller battery when compared to the Nord and has a display with a lower refresh rate. It also lacks features like wireless charging and IP rating and the only selling point for the Google Pixel 4a are the camera and the software experience.

Google Pixel 4a: Verdict

The Google Pixel 4a is for those, who want a smartphone with the best possible camera setup, especially for still photos and stock Android experience. For the asking price, there are a lot of smartphones that offer better features and build quality when compared to the Google Pixel 4a, especially in the Indian market.

How do we rate a Device?

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.

Camera

Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.

Battery

Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.

Display

The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.

Performance

This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
