Pixel 4a undercuts the competition!

by birtanpublished on November 26, 2020

All right hey google okay before you start but oh i can't say that um hello google before you start making sure you respond to every single tweet that talked about the pixel 4a and its leaks and complimenting me on my sleuthing thank you very much why don't you focus on keep making the pixel 3a until the 4a comes out okay because discontinuing it and then waiting for several weeks before dropping this one just that made no sense why did you do that but yeah the pixel 4a has

Finally come out the phone that a lot of people thought was going to come out a couple weeks after the iphone se which was now four months ago a little late on that one but better late than never because this is probably the best google pixel phone of all time let's begin so yeah other than a few typos on the website which thankfully i pointed out to google and they have now since fixed the google pixel 4a seems to be a pretty solid package undercutting what a lot of us were expecting at a 349 price point man

I would love to know the profit margins on a phone like this i wonder if it's a google nest mini situation where they basically lose money on every sale in the hope that they will make money back from you in other ways because man this thing is unbelievably cheap you got a standard you know 1080p 60hz display but it is oled and the screen to body ratio is not bad pretty consistent and good-looking side bezels all the way around a little bit of a chin but nothing too drastic just a tiny camera hole punch out in the corner and

Definitely looks better than the pixel 3a does which had much more of a dated looking design but at least there was no ugly notch now we've got the camera hole cutout which is what people wanted on pixel phones for so long and it also happens to be on the cheapest phone they've ever made like wow that's pretty impressive and the specs on it aren't too horrible either the battery's a little over 3 000 milliamp hours you got 128 gigs of storage by default which is pretty dope i think a lot of

People are gonna like that and while the camera sensors themselves aren't that impressive google's machine learning and image processing always results in taking really really high quality photos but i just have to ask i'm sorry why the heck does it have to have a square camera on the back if there's only one lens like what happened there on the pixel 3a you know you just had your lens and your flash and on this one they're like no big camera needs to be square because that's how iphone did it

And we need people to think it's an iphone so we put a square camera lens on the back i don't get it is this more expensive is this cheaper why does it have to look so scrap i don't know but the first pictures i've seen youtubers take with the pixel 4a seem to be fairly promising expected when it comes to stills with a pixel phone but of course because of the snapdragon chip the 730 this thing is rockin you obviously can't get that great video performance out of pixels which is to be

Expected that hasn't really changed throughout the years when it comes to rear camera video it's still limited to 4k at 30fps which honestly compared to the iphone se which is kind of this phone's competitor doing 4k at 60 does kind of suck and at the same time the front-facing video performance is also not that impressive at 1080p at 30 fps so no shocks there google is all about the stills and they don't care too much about the video and likely the biggest downfall the biggest issue some people

Might have is that snapdragon chip because first impressions at least from mkbhd who has been using this phone for about a week of course he's saying that it's definitely not feeling as snappy as he's used to with more flagship style phones and that processor is likely where google is skimping out in favor of that display so i guess the head-to-head comparison everyone wants to make between the iphone se and the pixel 4a is that the iphone se is all about price camera and processor whereas the pixel

4a is all about price camera display so on one hand you could say wow the display looks so much better on the pixel 4a it's an oled it's more edge to edge there's way less bezel so that obviously looks much better but if you think about longevity the iphone sc is probably going to easily get three maybe four more years of software support than the pixel 4a is going to get for one it may not age that well knowing that the snapdragon 730 is kind of not up to par with other processors up there you know it gets the job done it covers

The basics but long term definitely don't expect it to age as well as the a13 chip but you know the iphone se also has pretty dated and ugly bezels on the front if you care about that type of thing yeah when we're used to oled and edge to edge displays the iphone sc looks fairly out of place but what it does have on the pixel 4a despite being 50 more expensive is it's got water resistance pixel 4a still doesn't have that iphone c also has stereo speakers so if you like sound

Coming out of both sides of the phone that's a big win on the se that makes a huge difference to me especially and also wireless charging which in my opinion is a huge selling point especially when we have so many wireless chargers throughout our lives these days and we have them on desks we have them in cars we have them at coffee shops they're just becoming more and more commonplace and to have a phone that's launching in august of 2020 that still doesn't have wireless charging i guess that's what you should

Expect when the price is this good because all of my issues with the pixel 4a aside i cannot argue i cannot disagree with the fact that price point is killer in fact if there's anyone out there that wants to buy a new android and they're on a budget i think the pixel 4a will absolutely have to be my most requested phone like yeah i mean this is pretty hard to top the display is good the camera's good battery life is great it's got fast charging and yeah i will be picking one

Up so i will give you my in-person impressions on it as soon as it arrives google loves interacting with my tweets but they stopped sending me phones a few years ago which is totally fine i don't blame them with the amount of bashing i was giving them is totally understandable and frankly i'm confused they did it in the first place but i'm very curious to hear your guys's thoughts on the pixel 4a feel free to hit me up over on twitter join my discord let's chat more about it there this is your app sheep here

And all of your comparisons aside it just comes down to software okay so end of discussion i'll see you in the next one
