Announcement. Pixel 4a is a budget smartphone in Google's understanding

It has happened. Google Pixel 4a officially presented. Moreover, it has already fallen into the hands of English-speaking reviewers, who instantly managed to bungle a lot of reviews. A collection of links to these reviews (both text and video), as usual, lives on the smartphone page on our website. Come in, read, look at the pictures, admire the ratings. Informative.

Price. $ 349 (₽25,600) in the US, € 349 (₽30,500, $ 415) in continental Europe, personal £ 349 (₽33,600, $ 458) in the UK. Well ... Compared to the younger ones, the Apple Pixel 4a is really budget-friendly.

Iron. Last year's Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G. Or Qualcomm Snapdragon 730. On the official website 730, in all reviews - 730G. However, what is the difference between the 730 and 730G I personally did not understand. The performance is the same, the 730G is "more gaming". We will not reach three hundred thousand points in AnTuTu, but for an average smartphone class, the result is acceptable.

For some reason, everything is without options with memory. 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of constant. There is no memory card support.

In mid-2020, any screen with a diagonalless than six inches is usually called small. So let's do it. Small 5.81 ″ OLED screen. The resolution is FHD + 1080 × 2340, which with such a diagonal will give a large and beautiful number of pixels per inch - 444 ppi. There is a hole in the screen for the front camera.

Cameras are a nightmare - single! 8MP rear, 12.2MP front. Or not a nightmare? Welcome to read / watch the reviews, examples of photos are already pretty much riveted.

One-day battery, 3140 mAh. Moderately fast charging 18W.

Otherwise, everything is fine. NFC, a fingerprint scanner on the back, eSIM, even a barometer.

As you can see, there are no modern frills such as high refresh rates, wireless charging, support for 5G networks, etc. Well, right. Budgetary employees do not need excess.

What do you think? Need to take?
