Google Pixel 3a Review: Early verdict – Budget camera champion?

 

Google Pixel 3a review: We've spent five days with Google's new £399 smartphone. Here's what we think about the camera, battery life and more.

The Pixel 3a doesn’t quite bring back the pure bargain-basement pricing structure of the brand’s once-fabled Nexus series. However, it does lower the barrier of entry for anyone wanting a fantastic camera on a smartphone.

Google Pixel 3a

 

Google's well-rounded Pixel 3a is quite simply the best Android phone you can buy for $399.

Best-in-class camera. Gorgeous OLED display. Solid performance. Excellent battery life.

Not waterproof. No microSD slot.

The Google Pixel 3a is an unequivocal win for midrange phone buyers, with good battery life, a lovely display, the latest Android software, and a best-in-class camera. No other $400 phone comes close to offering this level of performance and polish, so...

Google Pixel 3a review (early verdict): premium camera, plastic case

 

Google Pixel 3a aims to bring the best of the Pixel 3 to a more affordable price point. Read our in-depth review to find out what survived the £340 price cut...

Phenomenal Pixel 3 Camera ; 3.5mm Headphone Port ; Fast-Charging / Fast-Charger In The Box ; 3 Years Of Android OS Updates Guaranteed ; Unlimited Google Photos Storage

No Ultra-Wide Group Selfie Mode From Pixel 3 ; No Water Or Dust Resistance ; Wireless Charging Has Been Ditched ; Not As Powerful As Some Phones At This Price

Google Pixel 3a review

 

Google takes back the mid-range with a laser focus on simplicity

Fantastic camera image quality in all conditions ; Stock Android with guaranteed updates ; Brilliant all-round mid-ranger

Budget rivals have ditched display bezels ; Single camera not as flexible as multi-lens competition ; Plastic build not for everyone

Everything we loved about the Pixel, only cheaper. Rivals do more with design, but Google's incredible camera and pure version of Android largely make up for it

Google Pixel 3a initial review: The 'Lite' Pixel still brings camera clout

 

The 'Lite' Pixel keeps the same camera of the flagship, delivered in a more affordable and less powerful package. But does this mid-ranger make sense?

Clean and smooth software experience ; Great point-and-shoot camera

Quite expensive given its specs/features ; Plastic build feels a bit cheap

We like that Google has opted to build a more affordable version of its pure Android smartphones, and even used some smart AI to ensure the camera and performance is pretty much the same in daily interactions.

Google Pixel 3a review

 

Does the 3a get an A?

Brings back the headphone jack ; Affordable price point ; Has Active Edge

Feels a little slower than the Pixel 3 ; No wireless charging ; Plastic body doesn't feel 'premium'

The Google Pixel 3a doesn’t feel like the affordable cousin of a high-end phone – it feels more like a powerful and impressive mid-range handset in its own right, with great specs and useful features inherited from the Pixel 3 that you won’t find in...

Google Pixel 3a review: Less is more

 

If you can live without things like wireless charging, water resistance and the ability to take photos of the moon, there are almost zero reasons to look and buying anything other than the Pixel 3a.

Incredibly good camera ; Headphone jack ; Compact form-factor ; Clean software

No MicroSD slot ; No waterproofing ; No wireless charging

Google Pixel 3a review: A masterclass in mid-range affordability

 

Google's new mid-range Pixel is a competent, well-rounded package with cuts in all the right places

Camera is just as good as the Pixel 3’s ; Significantly cheaper ; Superb colour-accurate display

Battery life is only better than average

It’s not quite perfect, but the Pixel 3a represents a significant turning point for Google’s smartphone division. There are cheaper and faster phones out there, but very little else displays as intelligent and well-rounded an approach.

Pixel 3A review: The cheap phone Google always needed

 

No water resistance and no wireless charging, but Google packs the $400 Pixel 3A with the features that matter.

The Pixel 3A is cheaper than the original Pixel 3 but packs the same grade-A camera that shoots great in lowlight. It can also record time-lapse videos and has a headphone jack.

The phone isn't water resistant and doesn't have wireless charging. Local storage is capped at 64GB, and Pixel 3A owners have unlimited uploads to Google Photos at a compressed high quality resolution, not original.

The Pixel 3A has the best camera for its price. But if a fast processor or more memory is your priority, get the OnePlus 6T instead.

Best Google Pixel 3a preorder deals: Claim a free Acer Chromebook worth £199

 

Google's latest handset is available to preorder right now - here are the best deals out there

As with the Pixel 3a, Vodafone is best for big data. With 60GB per month at your disposal, an upfront cost of £25 and a monthly spend of £38 really doesn't feel too extortionate at all.
