Question: 3a XL or A20, Which has the best camera??

Honestly, give me a plastic back. No, give me a rubberised plastic back. It's sturdier and stays in the hand much more easily.
Actual bezels as well, so that the screen's less liable to shatter. Plus it's easier to hold in landscape. I can't wait for the 4 to drive this thing down in price.

Where can you get Google Pixel 3a for US$400? In most other countries it costs at least $550 and that's 6 months after it released... Tell me where i can get it for $400 and i'll have it shipped to me for cheaper... wtf.

no good cameras on sub $500 phones ? i don't know about that, i'm pretty happy with my Pocophone F1, through updates it got stuff like night sight and 4K 60fps video, also you can sideload the google camera with it's night sight, i'm sure the Pixels camera is even better, but i'm not gonna pay an extra $400-500 for it.

Renewed Pixel 3 is $40 more than a new 3a on Amazon. With prices that close should I get the 3..?

Why would you buy something that is not cheap ... it only has old tech in it ... for the same amount of money you can buy more powerful phones, but what i hate the most out of this payed review is when he says "this is not a premium phone ... whatever that means" ... it's just an old phone and Google thought ... hey is an old phone but it will sell because is made by google, just like google plus ... is like a grandma phone, and he gets really excited about headphone jack ... who cares about that

Nice video sir, liked your channel,
but I would go for Poco F1, and flash Google Pixel 3XL rom, which is for only 270 USD, in India.

Hey, just bought this great phone and was wanting to use nova launcher. Is there a way to get gesture navigation working with Nova or is there a launcher that is fully compatible with Pixel 3a xl that allows me to hide apps and also create folders within the app drawer? Cheers, great video

FYI, for anyone worried about performance, my Pixel 3a opened Spotify just as fast as the Pixel 3XL on this video. Thats is almost double as fast as the 3aXL they showed here... And mine isn't factory restored and there were other apps running in the background.

The pixel 3A is a good phone for people who doesn't mind not getting the best specs. It gives you the best features from a premium phone without breaking your budget. It's not as slow like some reviewers are telling.

Hold on, that high quality thing with the Pixel 3a isn’t a problem. The file size is going to be compressed a little bit, but considering that the camera is 12.2 megapixels—far under the 16 megapixel Google Photos limit—there should be virtually no difference between the photos in Google’s servers and the photos on local storage even if you’re a pixel peeper. In fact, only people who use DSLRs or serious cameras are the ones going to be concerned about “original quality” and at that point why should they expect so much from a $400 phone? Just something to think about when reviewers talk about drawbacks...Google removed or changed features of the 3a for a reason.

Just bought a Google Pixel (from 2016) for $75. Fantastic camera. Only 32gb of storage but unlimited backup.

Just got my pixel 3a yesterday at Best buy -100 for Sprint activation and $80 of gift cards... That was given too me... So I got this phone for only $245 so at this price.... It's definitely worth it hahaha

the color tone is still a bit different between the two cameras as seen on the sample shots...basically different SoC means different ISP...and the better processor still kicks out better pictures even if the other hardwares and algorithms are the same...

The OLED panel on the 3a has terrible color shift and is quite warm(yellow)...just as bad as the Pixel 2 was well known for. It also is blurry, compared to the super sharp and crisp panel Pixel 3.

Hey guys. Get £40 to spend in the Google store when you buy the new pixel 3a or 3a-XL with this new code : B-OTON68NMPFMQHSSYSIV7U2P

Well, the Nexus 6p & 5x had a set of twins the 3a & 3aXL, yikes. For 399.00 best in class camera plus Google Software processing. There are no mid-rangers with this excellent camera. Will they sell boatloads, absolutely!

No mention whatsoever of the video capabilities of the phone, which is such an important consideration for a smartphone now. You made the point several times about how great the camera is, but no report on its video. Even more importantly, the fact that this phone cannot be set to shoot at 60 FPS in ANY resolution, which is a very serious issue for many users. He “auto FPS” feature is atrociously indicative of dumbing-down gone excessive. Otherwise, great reporting.

I have been using mine for 2
Days and am pretty impressed. The phone for me is fast enough for what I need to do like take pictures, listen to music, android auto, and reply to text messages and email. It's a phone that does a great job at being a phone. Games, and more intense work I leave to my iPad pro 11inch.
The thing about this phone is, you cant treat it as something it's not, a specd out flagship, but like Dieter says, the experience is actually really good 😎

I like how a lot of people see the none existing wireless charging as problem, because I really don't get it. I never had wireless charging, but is it really that hard to just plug in a phone? I don't think so
MüsliManTV - Před 3 měsíci
@Jenny Yeah, I have the 3a now, so nod wireless charging for me
Jenny - Před 3 měsíci
Ha I totally agree - I've never had wireless charging, never even considered it a thing but now I'm looking for a new phone and some phones have it, my brain wonders if I can ever live without it smh

I got myself a Pixel 3A XL after watching this video and I really regret it. It's got a really good screen and a really good rear camera just as said in the video. But there's one big problem about this phone is that it's way too slow when you run lots of apps on a daily basis. I don't play video games on the phone and I'm not like a super heavy user. But I use roughly 10 to 20 apps everyday, for chatting, for accessing my bank account, for web, for Instagram, for messaging so on and so forth and it get's incredibly slow the longer you use this phone. I'll probably give this phone to my dad as he doesn't use as many apps as I do but seriously for any heavy user this phone is not right for you.

You may have lots of sensors and triple camera but the real camera beast is Google pixel camera algorithm 🔥

Could you elaborate more on how the RAM and snapdragon capacity impacted your daily use of the 3A with all the regular apps you tend to use? ALSO, could you elaborate on the networking WiFi/LTE part? does that mean the phone will spend a long time trying to connect to any network, and the LTE part it will have issues picking up reception?

Thanks in advance

Perfect review! Clear, concise, funny and thorough - with the perfect level of detail. Told me everything I needed to know in a reasonable amount of time. Carrier support point was key. Oh, and great production. Music was thankfully not too distracting. Nice job! I actually think the 3a will do very well.

@Fikri Aziz I don't have insta but I can tell you that after a few weeks of having it it's a really great camera the battery last for about 6 hours a day if you have it charged at 100 but yeah it's a really great phone!

I am leaving Samsung and moving to pixel line up. They don't care about their customers after they sell the phone. Horrendous software update track record by Samsung. I will vote with my wallet on this.
