Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Google, which took place in May 2019 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2019). This is a new model Google Pixel 3a XL — smartphone works on Android 9 Pie, which can be updated to version 10.

Google Pixel 3a XL does not support two SIM cards, but if it′s important and necessary for you, we advise you to look in the directory smartphones with 2 sim cards. On this page, you can definitely pick up a good current model, which will suit you perfectly. And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. Google Pixel 3a XL has not received support for 5G networks, but this does not mean that this model is bad and does not deserve your attention. Look at all the features of this smartphone and its price. It is possible that you will like it very much and will be suitable for purchase today. And after one or two years, when you choose the next new smartphone, then on the page of all 5G smartphones in our catalog you will see hundreds of smartphones from many manufacturers at different prices.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. Google Pixel 3a XL received OLED-screen measuring 6 inches. And this is a phablete, not just a smartphone. And, even if you liked this model, it′s far from the fact that it will be convenient for you to use it. Therefore, we advise you to hold it in your hands before buying.

And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The thickness of the smartphone Google Pixel 3a XL is 8.2 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 3 700 mAh, which is the average value in the market.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Google Pixel 3a XL got the main camera with one module: 12.2 MP Wide. And there is also a front camera that has one module: 8 MP Wide. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is very weak. But the frontcamera not very good, we have in our catalog real selfie smartphones. It seems that we have already written many times that before buying you need to see a smartphone and hold it in your hands. And speaking about cameras, I would like to repeat the same idea once again — look at the reviews about this model, see examples of photos taken by this smartphone. It often happens that in search of a low price, you buy a model with a camera of tens of megapixels, but the photos and videos will not be of high quality.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Google Pixel 3a XL is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 670. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 4 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications only on the built-in smartphone memory, because the support for memory cards is not implemented here. You are only available 64 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Google Pixel 3a XL: buy or not to buy?

A huge new smartphone Google Pixel 3a XL you can choose and buy in any store at a price of $260. Sales start at May 2019.

We made a brief review of this model, we also recommend that you look at photos and videos about it. In our opinion, the smartphone turned out to be very powerful in performance, but with a conventional camera.

And if you are not suitable for buying Google Pixel 3a XL, then choose any other smartphone from the price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300” or directory of current DROID smartphones.
