    Great phone! My first Pixel and I love it. Even though it’s 60hz, it’s still smooth. NO BLOATWARE!! Just straight stock Android. Battery life is actually very good. I went to sleep at 10pm with 89% battery and woke up with 85% battery. By noon, I was at 58% with heavy use… Twitter, You Tube etc. By 6pm I was at 35% battery. I’m OK with that!Don’t buy the $1200 phones. If you want all the “gimmicks” then go ahead and pay the $1200. I’ll never buy an expensive phone ever again!

    Updated review:I’ve been using this phone regularly since the beginning of 2021. I have some thoughts to add and I added a star. The substance of the original review is basically the same.Android on a Google phone is better than iOS for an every day person. If you’re a “pro” then you might really want a high end iPhone, but you probably don’t really need it. This phone has value. I paid $500 for the phone, a very basic case, and taxes. That’s the price of a mid level Windows laptop. It’s only cheap in the sense of the skewed smartphone market. For the price of a higher end iPhone (or Samsung or other higher end Android phone), you could buy this phone, Moment lenses, tripods and selfie stick, and other accessories for the same price, if not less. You can buy this phone and all the Moment lenses and still pay less for the highest end iPhone.I still haven’t used all the camera options (no real chance for astrophotography yet) but I have used the camera basically every day. The transition between wide angle, regular, and close up is intuitive and easy whether you’re taking a picture or video. It occasionally gives me a live photo like option.For regular use, there’s no way I’m not going to use location for find my phone. $500 might be cheap to some people but it’s not to me. If I lose the phone, I want to find it. This runs down the battery life. I have been getting excellent battery life out of the extreme battery saver lately, which I use sometimes, than I did at first; but I’ve also been watching less videos lately. Keep an extra charger around if you’re on the go. For most people, the battery life will be the biggest issue. I highly recommend dark mode either way.The fingerprint reader is better than face ID. It’s fast and opens the phone immediately.Google pay is easy and I’ve used it in multiple contexts.Original review:Mediocrity at its best (3 stars)I have had this phone for a week. I have been using iPhones for the past 4 years. I had used cheap Android phones before that. My only flagship was the XS, which I would still use if the cameras still worked on it. I have an iPhone XR, which my employer pays and I use as an additional personal phone as well.I bought the Pixel 4a 5G for 3 reasons:1. The camera. I didn’t think the camera was that great at first but it’s been taking really good pictures, it’s grown on me and I haven’t used all the features yet. Let me compare it to the iPhone. I have small children. The iPhone is a better camera option for a parent for 1 reason – live photos. I often have to edit pictures to get a usable photo. The Pixel wins for its automatic picture quality and software but the iPhone wins because of its live features; and I really liked the Portrait mode on the XS when it worked.2. I plan to keep it for a few years and it has 5G. The 5G capability will make it usable in 4-5 years. The phone will be updated to Android 14 and it will stay modern for a while. It’s not “stock Android” on the phone, it’s Android with extra Google features exclusive to Pixel phones.3. It’s a “boring” phone. I was going to buy an LG dual screen ThinQ phone. The LG has a 32 bit DAC and the dual screen is nice. However, I came to the realization that I wanted a more basic phone. Technology can be a tool and it can be a distraction. The phone has everything I need.Android 11 vs. iOS 14:The only real difference is the Google versus the Apple ecosystem. There are only subtle differences in the user experience. It comes down to what you like. I have an iPad Pro 9.7 and a MacBook as well. It makes more sense for me to use an iPhone as my day to day phone but I wanted to try something different, and I wanted the Pixel camera. The actual experience is similar; although I give Google a slight edge on the design.Cons:1. The battery life is mediocre; I gave it 3 stars just because of the advertised battery quality and my actual experience. It’s worse than advertised and what the “reviewers” on YouTube have been telling us. They’re reviewing on Google’s platform and a lot of them are on Team Pixel. It’s not “bad” but I have it on dark mode and it doesn’t last a full day even with the Extreme Battery Saver mode if you use it normally.Conclusion:It’s a phone that’s good enough. It serves my needs and I plan to keep it for the next 4-5 years. My original iPhone was a SE, I had to replace it because it stopped charging, I probably would have held onto it another couple years otherwise. I don’t need the latest or “bleeding edge” to serve my day to day functions. If you’re on the fence between this phone and the XR (which are similar price points), then it really comes down to how invested you are in each ecosystem. Get an iPhone for iMessage or Facetime. Get the Pixel if you want the best software Google has to offer.

    After using a Google Pixel 3a for over one year, I had the itch to upgrade. Edge-to-edge screens, 5G, faster CPUs, and more RAM were quite enticing. I wasn’t thrilled with the price of the Pixel 5, but the Pixel 4a 5G was just enough to make me give in. It’s a noticeable upgrade from the Pixel 3a and should be more future-proof too. It’s been a great experience so far. And much like the Pixel 3a, the Pixel 4a 5G feels like a modern spiritual successor to the Nexus 5 (one of my favorite Android phones of all time).Coming from the Pixel 3a, the Pixel 4a 5G is slightly larger overall. not a whole lot, but it’s noticeable. If you have small hands or short fingers, the Pixel 4a 5G will feel like a large phone. The extra screen real estate was immediately noticeable. Although I’m still getting used to the hole-punch camera, the extra room is a welcome addition to most apps. Performance is noticeably snappier than the Pixel 3a (faster CPU, more RAM, and faster internal storage), but I usually don’t stress out my phones. The camera seems slightly better and has more features too.5G connectivity is a very welcome upgrade. Coverage with Google Fi in my area is quite good, but I’m usually on Wi-Fi. It’s kind of a shame I’m so cheap with data because the 5G upload speed is 2-3 times higher than my home DSL connection. 5G is still a fairly new technology, so I’m sure its coverage and speeds will get even better over time.Migrating from my Pixel 3a to the 4a 5G was pretty straightforward, but I’m neck-deep in Google’s ecosystem. If you use the Google Authenticator app, check into its migration process BEFORE you change phones. I had to reference my Pixel 3a since the Google Authenticator app didn’t automatically copy over that app’s data when I migrated to the Pixel 4a 5G. This may have been user error on my part, but it would have been a nightmare if I did a factory reset on my Pixel 3a a little too soon.Overall, I’m very happy with my Pixel 4a 5G. If you’re looking for a solid mid-tier phone with 5G connectivity, check this one out. It’s got the usual Pixel “vanilla Android” experience and the migration process was fairly smooth (even with me using Google’s Advanced Protection Program).

    I’ve been a Google Pixel Guy ever since Microsoft stop making phones. I love the compatibility, comfort of use, sleek style, and 5G is definitely faster. My whole household owns Google phones. In my opinion the best. Like I always say “you can’t Iphone that” Google PixelSee more

    I’ve been using for a month now. Bought this for the Camara and it didn’t disappoint. Way better than the Galaxy it replaced. I have been a Samsung user for years but google has converted me. Everything seemlessly integrates, super easy to use. Set up was a breeze. Also google adds new cool features periodically like new HR and pulse ox. Would like wireless charging and waterproof but wasn’t willing to spend the extra 300 for it. Well done google I’m impressed.See more

    This phone is fantastic, has a ton of useful features. One of my favorites is the what is playing feature which occurs when the phone is locked. Allows me to know what most, if not all music around me is being played.Overall, its a great unit, reliable and the cost is amazing!!!!See more
