HIGHLIGHTS OF GOOGLE PIXEL 3A
According to Rick Osterloh, Google’s hardware chief, who was also the former president of Motorola initiated the development of an ecosystem of in-house products and platforms with its goal is “to bring a more helpful smartphone experience to more people”, and universally announced “THE PIXELS” on October 4th 2016, which set the mark for the beginning and evolution of a new range of Android Smartphones.
Meet Pixel 3a Premium For less, with the power to do more than the ordinary, or maybe one can say beyond the extraordinary (Apple iPhone). At first glimpse, we could say that the Pixel 3A phones look nearly identical to the most expensive Pixel 3 phones. The 3A model is a little bit taller, which might be due to the extra space needed to fit in a real 3.5mm headphone jack on the top and not to forget at the bottom, the speakers are down-firing instead of front-facing, and has space for a single Nano-SIM, but otherwise, the elegance about PIXEL 3a remains undestroyed.
Measuring 6 x 2.8 x 0.3 inches and weighing just 5.2 ounces with a screen resolution of 5.6-inch OLED (2220 x 1080 pixels), with the full-HD+ resolution, it definitely gives you a display of vibrant colours, with wide viewing angles and 1920’s perfect blacks for a good price.
Armed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC processor which is an octa-core chip, Pixel 3a comes in just one variant, offering 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which isn’t expandable, unless you opt to use Google Photos – The lifesaver of Pixel 3a which has unlimited photo storage capacity at compressed resolution. They also are known to receive timely software and security updates with an assurance of 3 years of guaranteed software support.
The Pixel 3a comes with a fairly small battery at 3,000 mAh, Coupled with the Pixel 3a’s processor, which attributes more cores dedicated for low power consumption rather than high performance, this phone can actually last quite a bit longer on a charge. Adding to the plus point, it also has an 18W Type-C charger that relatively helps in charging the Pixel 3a rapidly.
It offers a single rear camera at 12.2 megapixels with an f/1.8 aperture, with its remarkable tricks that include Night Sight, which allows you to capture great photos even in complete darkness, as well as Bokeh Portrait Mode which means to say that the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image is captured by Pixel 3a beyond perfection, especially as rendered by a particular lens and also carries a Super Res Zoom feature, for digital zoom that’s comparable with optical.
VARIANTS OF COLOUR – It comes in three colours which are Clearly White,
Just Black & Light shade of Purple.
VARIANTS OF SIZE – Just One variant is available which is of 64GB.
PRICE – The price of Google Pixel 3a in India is Rs. 39,999.
The Pixel 3a is a steal for those who simply don’t want to spend a bomb on their phone and still get a great camera. The specifications and the build quality is amazing and up to the mark, the display is a cut above any LCD screens, the battery lasts very long on a charge, and the software consists of Google’s latest services, with the promise of fast updates for up till three years. Last but not the least the features are decent enough for the price, and you don’t have to worry about the bloatware that you would probably find in other midrange phones which fall under the price and category of pixel range of smartphones.
