  • What google says about ram is that smartphones don't need more than 4gb. 4Gb is more than enough for smartphones. Software quality matters! Google is focusing more on camera technology! Pixel's camera is natural. No any kind of photo editing while capturing photos (unlike iPhone's colour grading and background lacks a lot of details sometimes)!

  • I don't know if you guys agree, but I don't need wireless charging. It's slow and just warms up my phone. I don't need 5G. I don't live in the heart of a city, the only places in America it exists right now. I don't care about 120hz screens that suck battery life, or 4k or WQHD I can't even see. I don't need under-screen biometrics that takes longer to unlock. This phone is perfect. Stock Android, support for three years... it's a bargain.

  • Stop complaining about specs that 95% of people are barely maxing out in their daily use. For me coming from a 4 year old Samsung A5 (2016) of the same price, this thing is fantastic and the 5G is even more.

  • Just upgraded from a Galaxy S8 to this (it legit arrived yesterday afternoon) and my god is it an upgrade. it has a bigger screen but is physically smaller in every dimension. Still has an aux port so I can use my IEMs and no stupid bixby button for me to accidentally press. I legitimately like this phone, and considering the Galaxy S8 is near it's end of life, is a massive upgrade even price comparable new vs used. Side note: screw glass backs. They're slippery, get covered anyway, and don't actually look that bad to me. They also break pretty easily. Plastic IMO is much better as someone who constantly drops their phone.

  • Hey linus I really appreciate your work and the commentary you give on high end flagship phones is really intresting, but you really seemed to just find every bit of negative thing on the pixel 4a treating it as a 800+ phone, while in reality many of his drawbacks (no 90hz, no widelens, no face unlock) are all justifiable for the price range, and while it has few special features the ones it has are superb thanks to google software. You shouldn't compare this to a pixel 4 or an iphone 11 it just feels like you're giving an unfair look at the phone, wich while undoubtedly doesn't hold a candle (besides maybe in the camera department) to them it's really amazing at what it does at the price

  • I went from high spec phones costing more than I should be paying were I right in the noggin, to buying sub £200 phones. I've not missed the extra cost. Currently 64gb Moto g8 and I've not even used half of its storage yet. This pixel is ideal for those of us who want a phone that doesn't need all the bells and whistles, can take decent photos and video etc and doesn't cost the earth. Ordered mine.

  • He recommended the Iphone SE just 4 months ago and it ONLY has 3 GB of ram and now he's complaining about the pixel "only" having 6GB...which obviously is twice that...lack of consistency much? it "only" has 128GB of storage, again with the SE review starts at 64GB (and even then, at half the storage, 50$ more) want more than 128GB? its 150$ more. its a BUDGET 350$ phone, treat it as such and then you realize how great value it has. Yes, the Iphone has a better processor and has software updates for up to 5 years (2 more than the pixel, on paper) and no water resistance certification, but as far pretty much everything else, the pixel does better, bigger battery, bigger screen, more ram, more storage and a headphone jack. (had to include that one lol ) oh, almost forgot about the camera, the best thing about this phone, easily one of the best phone for taking photos (Wish it had a wide angle lens but again, for 350$, can't ask for much more) Not as good when it comes to videos but still can get the job done (up to 4k 30 fps)

    Bird Turd MemesBird Turd Memesپیش ماه
  • The software updates are what keeps me at Apple for now. Still using an iPhone 7, and the longer I use it the lower the cost per year on the hardware. If Pixel would support 4-5 maybe even 6 years, it would be a whole different matter, as I love the idea of having root access. But for what I need a phone to do day by day, Apple's fine for now.

  • I like how you mentioned specs vs experience because on my iPhone 7 with the cool haptic engine it creates all these feedback clicks and taps to be added to the OS and I think it’s so great, but most Android fanboys wouldn’t get that because they just care about having 8 gigs of RAM

  • Always using power smartphones (one plus 5T, Oppo Reno 2, Mi note 7 and others) with huge amount of ram on storage but never needed these specs for real (even if I use smartphones both for working and having fun in personal life). Think the pixel 4a will be my next phone to try once it will be available here, even if I am using a rather new one.....bored of huge screen who cannot fit into pockets and useless builder add-on to android: I'd like to have a stock android experience! Think it is a great device.

  • Disappointing on the speakers. My Pixel 3a XL stands until at least either the 4a 5g or 5 come out. It's still fast enough, even with worse hardware. Google's optimization is approaching Apple levels, so their devices are fast in practice. Flagship Camera *and* speakers on the 3a XL are enough to justify the other tradeoffs right now.

  • I had the pixel 2 64GB for 2 years and never filled it up. I had all my playlists on spotify downloaded, quite a few apps, no games, regularly took photos which backed up to my Google photos, I'm fed up of tech reviewers pushing for phone manufacturers to include Micro SD slots, sure it's nice to have, but it's just not necessary. 128GB is more than enough, what are you people putting on your phone? How often do you use whatever it is you have stored on your phone?

This is a good minimalistic phone.
