Google Pixel 5a

 

The Google Pixel 5a remains elusive for UK smartphone lovers, with Google opting for a US-only release for its 2021 mid-range Android phone.

New low price now under $400 ; Camera over-performs ; Android 12 and guaranteed updates ; Vibrant display

Feels old hat now Pixel 6 is here ; Only 60z display

If you’re seeking a smaller and affordable handset with stock Android 12, rapid updates, 5G connectivity, and a camera that can punch way above its weight, the Pixel 5a might be for you. However, since the Pixel 6 arrived, the 5a is already looking...

Google Pixel 5a review

 

The Google Pixel 5a has few improvements over its predecessor, but it's still a solid mid-range phone with decent specs and great cameras.

Great cameras and software Good specs for the price Big battery

Few improvements over predecessor No zoom camera Low-powered in-box battery charger

The Google Pixel 5a isn’t much different than its predecessor aside from a bigger battery and a rating for water and dust resistance, making it an underwhelming upgrade, but still a solid mid-range phone with fantastic cameras. If you don't mind going...

Google Pixel 5A review: Snappy performance, familiar design

 

Google's newest Pixel phone is solid and affordable at $449, even if the 5G support leaves plenty of hanging questions.

Nice screen ; Speedy performance ; IP67 water-resistant ; Affordable price

No wireless charging ; 5G support in the US is unclear

Google Pixel 5a 5G review

 

The Google Pixel 5a is the third iteration of Google's Pixel "a" Series: smartphones based on the Google Pixel experience made with lower-cost entry...

Large and super-bright OLED display

Limited market availability and only one color and storage option

Google's Pixel 5a 5G has imposter syndrome out of the box: Google doesn't believe that it's worthy enough to compete in markets outside of the US and Japan. The Pixel 5a 5G is a great phone with excellent battery life, a great camera, snappy software,...

Google Pixel 5a 5G Review: A modest upgrade to the camera powerhouse

 

The Google Pixel 5a 5G brings some minor upgrades to the table with IP67 and a bigger battery, while keeping clean Android software and capable cameras.

“The Pixel 5a continues to live up to its camera expectations, offering smooth performance, punchy photos, and lowlight capabilities on a budget.”

Google Pixel 5a With 5G Review

 

Durable ; Crisp OLED display ; Best-in-class cameras ; All-day battery life

Lacks a zoom lens ; Mediocre speakers ; No mmWave connectivity

Powerful performance, an immersive OLED display, a large battery, and an incredible camera stack make the Google Pixel 5a with 5G the best midrange phone you can buy.

Google Pixel 5A review: boring, but better than ever

 

Strategic updates that keep it at the top of the class.

IP67 water resistance rating ; Much improved battery life ; Camera still at the top of the class

Limited availability ; Lacks software-level C-band 5G support ; Good but not class-leading support policy

The Google Pixel 5A gets some strategic upgrades, including an IP67 water resistance rating, bigger 6.34-inch screen, and a larger battery, making a good midrange phone even better.

Pixel 5a review: Pixel 4a 5G remastered

 

Google's Pixel 5a is the most impressive A-series yet on paper, but there are flaws

Strong battery life ; Bundled fast charger ; Excellent camera performance ; 3.5mm headphone jack ; Water-resistant

Disappointing performance ; Outdated design ; 60Hz display

The Pixel 5a is a solid replacement for last year’s Pixel 4a 5G, but a couple of missteps undercut its upgrades.

Google Pixel 5a Review

 

Google's a-series phones have always been the pick of the Pixel range, and the new Pixel 5a with 5G is no different. Straying little from the recipe of minimalistic hardware and design, balan…

Impressively affordable ; Latest Android features ; Excellent camera performance ; All-day battery life

Design is bland ; No wireless charging support ; Only Sub-6 5G, not mmWave
