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 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.

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Disappointing performance ; Outdated design ; 60Hz display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

Google Pixel 5a Review: Boring looks hide an outstanding budget phone


We discuss what we expect to see from the yet-unannounced Pixel 5a in terms of design, display, software and performance, camera, and battery life.

Big battery can last you 2 days between charges ; Clean software ; 3 years of software updates (updates arrive right after release too) ; Excellent camera ; Affordable price

Annoying camera bugs ; 60Hz screen, no fast refresh rate ; Same Snapdragon 765G chip as last year, slower than some rivals ; Boring design ; No expandable storage, No wireless charging (if you care) ; Only available in US and Japan, in the US you...

Google Pixel 5a review: All hail the king of affordable camera phones


The Google Pixel 5a packs a serious punch, even after Google has unveiled its new Pixel 6 handsets. This is the phone to get if you want the best photography experience under $500.

Spectacular cameras ; Big, bright display ; IP67 water resistance

Older chipset ; Limited to US and Japan ; No wireless charging

There are better phones that cost upwards of $1,000 or more, but I find it difficult to consider any of them to be as good of a value as the Pixel 5a.
