Google Pixel 4a vs Moto G Power – Who Will Win?

Which is better the google pixel 4a or the motorola moto g power well in this video we're gonna find out hi everyone this is kevin here coming at you with my comparison between the pixel 4a versus the moto g power so let's get started now the pixel 4a was recently launched and the moto g power was launched in april of 2020 and while the pixel 4a is a bit more expensive than the moto g power at being roughly a hundred dollars more

I know that the moto g power has been very popular with many people and i'm sure a decent chunk of people out there are gonna be curious on if they should save a hundred bucks with this phone or spend a little bit more to get the pixel 4a now the google pixel 4a features a 5.81 inch display compared to a 6.4 inch display with the moto g power so without a doubt the moto g power not only has a bigger display but it is definitely the larger phone of

The two now the displays feature different technology as well so with the pixel 4a we are getting an oled display compared to ips lcd with the moto g power now the pixel 4a's display does look awesome the colors are great viewing angles are really good and those are all benefits that come along with oled but the moto g power still does have a good display even though it is lcd beyond that both

Displays are 1080p with the pixel 4a we're getting a ppi of 443 compared to a ppi of 399 with the moto g power and with the pixel 4a we're getting a 19 and a half by 9 aspect ratio compared to a 19×9 aspect ratio with the moto g power and then finally with the pixel 4a we're getting an 83.3 percent screen to body ratio compared to 83 with the moto g power so that particular metric is very close now you can see looking at

The top of both devices they do both feature a hole punch for the front facing camera located off to the top left corner now with the pixel 4a we're getting an 8 megapixel front facing camera compared to a 16 megapixel front-facing camera with the moto g power now with the pixel 4a we are getting 128 gigabytes of internal storage compared to 64 gigs with moto g power now there is no micro sd card expansion with the 4a whereas the g power does have micro sd card expansion

So even though the moto g power does have half the amount of internal storage you do at least have the ability to expand it neither of these two devices have wireless charging and they both have fingerprint sensors on the rear so let's give those a try so we'll start with the pixel 4a there we go nice and quick and then now the moto g power and very quick as well now one of the things with the pixel 4a is that the fingerprint sensor is kind of hard to find on the back because it's hardly indented in

So it does take some getting used to that's for sure now neither of these two devices feature face unlock so if you do want that feature you are gonna have to look elsewhere now taking a look at the cameras on the back with the pixel 4a we just have one camera at 12.2 megapixels and then with the moto g power we have a 16 megapixel main camera an 8 megapixel ultra wide angle camera any 2 megapixel macro camera so going into the camera apps here on both devices

Obviously there's quite a few differences that you probably noticed already just by seeing the cameras that we have but definitely for the 4a they've taken a different approach instead of giving the device a bunch of different cameras and camera features they've decided to double down on the main camera and make that especially good and i do respect that i mean if there are certain features though that you want such as an ultra wide angle camera then you can only get that with the moto

G power but to be honest with how good the camera quality is from the pixel 4a and it's way better than any other phone in this price range i will definitely give them a free pass for not having a macro camera or an ultra wide angle camera but both devices do give you portrait mode for the front and rear cameras which is definitely nice you get that nice blurred out background that i know we're all a big fan of for sure is unlike anything that you can find from any device especially under 500 so when it comes to cameras you know

I'll give the moto g power credit for having an ultra wide angle camera and a macro camera but really beyond that the google pixel 4a is in a class of its own and that's really awesome and that's a trend i'd like to see expand across other smartphone manufacturers giving you a really amazing main camera despite the phone not being extremely expensive now with the google pixel 4a we're getting six gigabytes of ram and the qualcomm snapdragon 730 g

And with the moto g power we're getting four gigabytes of ram so two less and the qualcomm snapdragon 665 now i feel like both phones offer a decent amount of performance especially for their various price ranges now i did run a benchmark test with both and i'll show you the score from that right now so with the pixel 4a i got a single core score of 5 5 1 and a multi-core score of 1649 compared to the moto g power where i got a single core score of 304 and a multi-core score of 1309

So without a doubt when it comes to these benchmark scores the pixel 4a does have the better scores of the two now video recording with both devices does max out at 4k at 30fps with the rear camera so that is very awesome now as far as battery capacity goes the pixel 4a features a beefy 3140 milliamp hour internal battery with 18 watt fast charging and the moto g power has a much bigger battery though at 5 000 million powers with 10 watt fast charging so definitely

If you're looking for a device with amazing battery life the moto g power is the better choice of the two in my opinion but on the other hand you are going to still get very good battery life with the 4a now the software experiences here are similar and different so with the pixel 4a we are getting three years of updates as far as the software goes which is great and we are getting the pixel experience here so pretty much a stock variant of android and with the moto g power we're getting

Pretty much the same type of thing it's very stock but there's a few tweaks in here for motorola to make the software better in my opinion and same with the 4a there's some additional tweaks they've done specifically for this phone and the other pixel phones that you can't find with any other android devices now taking a closer look at the hardware of both devices i already talked quite a bit about the front panels on both phones but you can see here that the bezels are

Very small all around for the 4a whereas with the moto g power we do have a little bit of a thicker bottom bezel but still in general i feel like both handsets do look nice they also both feature a plastic build beyond the display which is glass of course now taking a look at the left side of both devices they both have the slot the micro sd card and sim card then on the right they both have the power button and volume button i'm not really a big fan of the placement

Of the power button on the 4a i wish that was the button on the bottom and then the volume button was up top similar to the setup with the moto g power but i suppose that you could eventually get used to this with the 4a so it's not really a deal breaker now taking a look at the top of both devices on the pixel 4a we have a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack and a noise canceling microphone and then with the moto g power we just have the noise cancelling mic and then on the bottom of both phones with the pixel 4a

We have the microphone speaker and usbc port for charging and data transfer and with the moto g power with the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack usb c port for charging data transfer microphone and speaker and then on the back of both phones we do have the camera modules on both so just a single camera again the pixel 4a and then we have the fingerprint sensor but one big difference is that we have more of a matte finish with the 4a and then a glossy finish with the g

Power and i definitely prefer the matte finish on the 4a over what we're getting with the g power let's now do a speed test comparison between these two phones so we're going to start by going to the camera apps on both so one two three go and it was about a tie maybe a little bit quicker with the google pixel 4a let's now go to google chrome one two three go and definitely quicker there with the 4a out of the two and you can see in the side by side here how much brighter

And clearer at least at this angle the display is with the 4a and i do have the brightness cranked up to 100 percent on both phones but since this phone is oled that's one of the benefits with it is that you are going to be getting better viewing angles but let's now go to yahoo.com one two three go there's about a tie in both let's go to endgadget.com one two three go and it looks like it loaded up quicker with the moto g power but not too far

Behind on the 4a so scrolling is very smooth with both phones that's not an issue let's go to this article one two three go and it is quicker with the google pixel 4a at pulling up so in general i'm a big fan of the performance of both phones but i'd say that the 4a does perform better in general without a doubt but i hope you enjoyed this video about these two devices and let me know if you have any questions or any other feedback to

Provide but this is the google pixel 4a versus the moto g power
