Google Pixel 6a

 

The Pixel 6a is a small, powerful Android phone that's more wallet-friendly next to Google's other devices.

Lovely small form-factor ; Reliable camera for the price ; Google’s excellent software

60Hz display feels slow compared to the rivals ; Slow to fully charge

The Pixel 6a is a small, powerful Android phone that’s more wallet-friendly next to Google’s other devices. It isn’t as revolutionary as other A-series handsets we’ve seen, but it’s still a great phone for those who prefer great software rather than...

Google Pixel 6a review: super yet superfluous?

 

The 'baby Pixel' is here, but does it make sense given the price and forthcoming Pixel 7's arrival?

Android runs at its best on Pixel ; Decent, easy-to-use cameras arrangement ; Battery life is impressive despite smallish capacity ; If you don't want a massive phone this is a solid option

Only a 60Hz refresh rate display ; Screen feels small (to me anyway) ; Pixel 6 isn't much more cash and a more logical buy for most ; Proximity to Pixel 7 series reveal in October feels mistimed

The Google Pixel 6a is a model example of a small-screen Android phone – and I think its size is the key selling point. However, the older Pixel 6 from 2021 doesn't really cost much more and will suit a wider audience really. Still, if you're looking...

Google Pixel 6a review: Mid-range magic

 

Google's smallest and most affordable Pixel 6 device.

Great-looking phone ; Flagship power ; Great updates policy ; That Pixel camera

Storage limited to 128GB ; Display only 60Hz

The Google Pixel 6a delivers some flagship hardware at a mid-range price point. There's the widely-lauded Pixel camera on the rear which offers a great experience while not using the latest hardware from Google. This is a compact phone with a great...

Google Pixel 6a review

 

Google's mid-range Pixel smartphone series gets back on track with better design and availability

Top drawer performance ; Smaller size ; Outstanding camera ; Solid battery life ; Guaranteed software updates

Rear plastic scratches easily ; Charges slow and hot ; Only 60Hz display

A superlative mid-range phone and one of the best value Android phones you can buy, the Pixel 6a crams in the best bits from the more expensive Pixel 6 and 6 Pro at a very attractive price.

Google Pixel 6a review: cut-price camera king

 

Another wallet-friendly stunner. Good luck getting better performance for less.

Impeccable camera quality ; Design fits in perfectly with pricier Pixels ; Excellent performance for a mid-tier phone

60Hz screen off pace with similarly-priced rivals ; Charging could be faster

Confirmation (if more were needed) that affordable Google phones are the best Google phones. The Pixel 6a has a few rough edges, but its cameras and streamlined software are second to none in the Android world.

Google Pixel 6a review: Right phone, wrong time

 

The Pixel 6a is an astonishing mid-range handset, but it should have launched earlier

Google Tensor chipset continues to impress ; Flagship-quality cameras ; Sublime colour-accurate screen

Regular Pixel 6 isn’t much more ; Display is only 60Hz ; No face unlock or microSD expansion

So there’s plenty to like about the Pixel 6a, then. Not that you should be surprised – after all, Google’s pedigree is well-documented at this point – but the Pixel 6a should still be applauded for squeezing this much stuff into a handset this affordable.

Google Pixel 6a review: Cheap, small, and packing a big punch

 

The Google Pixel 6a is here. It has a fresh design, Google's flagship chipset, and still costs just $449. But is it any good?

Compact, lightweight design IP67 water resistance Flagship-grade performance Excellent cameras Clean software Years of guaranteed updates

Display is only 60Hz Tensor chip runs hot Lacking battery life

“While it may not be the knockout value that its predecessors were famous for, the Pixel 6a still delivers a lot of phone for not much money.”

Google Pixel 6A Review: The Best Budget Pixel Yet

 

The Pixel 6A's solid camera and premium design make it the best Android phone under $500 right now. As long as the Pixel 6 isn't on sale.

Great camera ; Affordable price ; Premium design for a middle-tier phone ; Among the first to get new Android updates

Somewhat dim display ; Not a great value alongside discounted Pixel 6 ; Not as many years of guaranteed Android updates as Samsung ; Video quality isn't as good as still photos

Google Pixel 6a Review

 

Excellent overall value ; Fantastic battery life ; Vibrant OLED display ; Solid camera

Lacks microSD card slot and 3.5mm headphone jack ; Doesn't support wireless charging ; Weak cellular performance in some areas

The sub-$500 Google Pixel 6a leads the midrange phone pack with solid performance, incredible battery life, and a standout design.
