What's in the Pixel 4a?
According to a review by 9to5Google, Pixel 4a is a mid-range smartphone that can do the job at a fraction of the price. It comes with a 5.8-inch display in a black plastic body shell with a green power button. It runs with a clean-build Android 10 and can be soon updated to Android 11.
The phone carries Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset, 6GB of RAM, and its huge 128GB storage. It is pre-loaded with Google apps, including the "new" Google Assistant that leaves other device assistants to dust.
Meanwhile, Google Pixel 4a one has a 12MP camera with 7x zoom on the back, which takes some crisp images. The battery is quite small, but it performs really well throughout the day with about 20% remaining even with web browsing and social media.
