Well when it comes to modern smartphones, it means more. It demands more features, more cameras pixels and sensors more gigabytes and gigahertz and more money as well. Last year Google launched $799 Pixel 3 but this time, it comes up with $399 Pixel 3a. Having a relatively lesser price does not means that the phone has fewer specs. It still offers most of the things that make the Pixel 3 special: an excellent camera, Pixel-specific Android with updates directly from Google.

The Google Pixel 3a has the same aesthetic, dual-finish matte and gloss rear, softly curved sides with squeeze-for-Assistant support. Besides that it has a round fingerprint sensor on the back.

The phone is I 5.6-inches and 2220 x 1080 resolution. If you want bigger, the Pixel 3a XL steps up to 6-inches for $50 more.
