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 review: 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 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


Unadulterated Android at an affordable price

Impressive low light photography ; Vibrant, dynamic screen ; Good value for money

Disappointing audio performance ; Rudimentary design and build ; Slightly underpowered

A fine phone for video and photography, it’s just a pity that the audio doesn’t quite match

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


Update: the Google Pixel 3a could get a whole lot better towards the end of the year as Google has announced Google Stadia , its cloud gaming platform that's due to launch in November, will initially be exclusive to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a series of...

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...

Save £70 on the superb Google Pixel 3a


A fine phone at a super price

Given the Pixel 3a is guaranteed new versions of Android and security updates until May 2022, you’re probably okay to buy now if you think the price is right.

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.

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.
