Short description Google Pixel 4a 5G

This is a smartphone on Android 11 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a great camera that has 2 modules (12.2 MP Wide, 16 MP UltraWide), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Google Pixel 4a 5G has such features: cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Versions: GD1YQ, G025I.

Android version and market relevance

New smartphone Google Pixel 4a 5G introduced a company Google in September 2020. It has Android version 11, which, unfortunately, it will not be possible to update, because the manufacturer did not take care of it. This new smartphone has also received support for high-speed 5G networks so that you can watch very high-quality 4K or even 8K videos on YouTube, play online games and not feel any inconvenience associated with the slow speed of mobile Internet.

Well, what can I say, Google Pixel 4a 5G is a smartphone of 2020 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Google Pixel 4a 5G screen, we were assigned to a segment phablets (smartphones with a huge screen), considering that the bezels around the screen are very small (all smartphones with an edge-to-edge screen). See for yourself, here is OLED-screen with diagonal 6.2″ and with a punch-like notch for selfie camera and sensors.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Google Pixel 4a 5G the case turned out very thick — 8.2 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 3 885 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 8 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment weak cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

The main camera got several modules (dual camera smartphones): 12.2 MP Wide + 16 MP UltraWide, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment very good cameras. You can buy this smartphone. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor Snapdragon 765G installed in Google Pixel 4a 5G. 6 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 128 GB. Memory cards in this model, unfortunately, are not supported.

Price for Google Pixel 4a 5G: buy or not to buy?

Price Google Pixel 4a 5G at the start of sales was $650. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and got a very powerful processor, a huge touch screen, and the front camera is not too cool with a decent main camera.

If you want to buy Google Pixel 4a 5G, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.
