Talking about pros then there are many good stuff that this Google Pixel 3a & 3a XL has then the Pixel 3 & 3 XL . Starting with the basic,these pixel devices have the 3.5mm audio jack which is most demanded by the users, so this is a great step by google to provide a headphone jack. With that it also have the stereo speaker in it which gives a better experience while watching videos without any headphones. Google also ensures minimum 3 year updates on this stock android that is also a great initiative by the company. It also has night sight feature in camera and click awesome pictures with both front and back camera. Last but not the least we can’t end up without talking about its battery backup which is amazing and can last upto a day easily with a plus point of support of quick charge.

Personally I feel that there are many things missing like we don’t get a led notification light in it which is not a that much big deal but something we want.Another thing comes out from the looks, it made up of poly-carbonate plastic and has a big notch as well as chin which doesn’t look premium in hand. Thing which matters the most is that it has the Snapdragon 665 processor, I’m not saying its bad but in this price range there are many companies that offers snapdragon 855 processor which make a huge difference. This device also have some heating issues, so if you are a gamer and going for it, think twice. Pixel 3a & 3a XL memory cannont be expanded that means it doesn’t support any microSD card for additional space which is quite disappointing. Neither it supports dual sim cards and wireless charging which matters alot. So under this price range there are many features missing in this pixel phone.

In my opinion Google should have lower the price range of these smartphones to increase the number of buyers. We all loved pixel series but in such a high price range many people might hesitate in buying.

Alright guys, so this is from my side,hope this blog helped you in deciding whether to buy it or not.
