When Google discontinued its Nexus smartphone lineup, it left a void in the market that has been hard to fill. People didn't really have an affordable option running powerful hardware and stock Android software. Multiple smartphone manufacturers have tried to make something like a Nexus smartphone, but have fallen short. Google tried to offer a substitute with the relaunched Android One programme, which helped participating manufacturers offer a stock Android experience on their devices, but it still hasn't been the same.

Google Pixel 3a Summary

The Google Pixel 3a is positioned as an affordable alternative to Pixel 3. This smartphone promises the same Google Pixel experience but at a relatively affordable price point of Rs. 39,999.

The Pixel 3a sports a 5.6-inch OLED display with full-HD+ resolution. It has three colour profiles which help change the output of the display. It has good viewing angles and punchy contrast. The Pixel 3a gets stereo speakers as well but these aren't front firing like the Pixel 3. The stereo speakers produce a good output but sound tinny at full volume.

Google has opted for a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC which is an octa-core chip. The Pixel 3a comes in one variant only, offering 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which isn't expandable. However Google does offer unlimited photo storage at compressed resolution.

The Pixel 3a has a single Nano-SIM slot but offers dual-SIM functionality via an E-SIM. You can take full advantage of the E-SIM if your carrier supports this functionality.

Being a Pixel smartphone, it runs stock Android Pie with some of Google's customisation on top. Pixel devices are known to get timely software and security updates. With the Pixel 3a, Google promises 3 years of guaranteed software support. The smartphone offers a good user experience and we did not notice any lag or stutter during our usage.

The primary camera is a 12.2-megapixel Sony IMX363 sensor just like the Pixel 3. At the front, it has a single 8-megapixel selfie shooter. It gets most of the camera features of the Pixel 3 like Night Sight, Super Res Zoom and Playground. The camera performance is very good and the Pixel 3a manages to deliver crisp shots in most lighting conditions.

Google has equipped the Pixel 3a with a 3000mAh battery that helps it offer good battery life. The search giant also includes an 18W Type-C charger in the box that helps charge the Pixel 3a quickly. We could go on for over a day once the Pixel 3a was fully charged.

For the launch price of Rs. 39,999 the Pixel 3a feels expensive for what it offers. Some of the competitors offer more powerful hardware for lower prices. But if you want the best camera performance under Rs. 50,000, the Pixel 3a delivers on that front.

    If camera and stock android is your top priority, this one is for you. Also 3yr updates from Google, AR support, good battery life. Costly but if you get a good deal, go for it.
