why you guys do not update the endurance of this device

the first point (1) located at left bottom of the screen is where sim tray is located ;)

JeffJ318, 06 Sep 2021No, it does not come with a pre-installed screen protector.... moreI always use screen protectors. I always buy matte ones because I do not like reflections on my device screen. I dont think everybody is same as me, though most people do apply some sort of protection (tempered glass or film). But I think it is not device manufacturer's responsibility to provide screen protector or any case in the box. Everybody should be free to purchase one if they need. Otherwise people who do not use (or do not like the included case/protector) will just throw them away - and this is just increasing waste production.

Should I still consider purchasing the Pixel 5a 5G with the video 4k 60 overheating issues?
I am not a gamer, don't take videos, some photos, mostly use the phone for email, FB, YouTube, Netflix, etc. Screen resolution is important.

Anonymous, 31 Aug 2021Dont understand why not coming to Asia Oceana???? There is a chip shortage and that might be one reason. Google is using chips from last year that were probably left over which is okay.

Anonymous, 04 Sep 2021Does it comes with a pre-installed screen protector?No, it does not come with a pre-installed screen protector. It does have Gorilla Glass 3. There is controversy whether anyone needs a screen protector although I think a high percentage of phone users have one.

Rikkon, 06 Sep 2021I've never owned a premium range phone, Always midrang... moreThank you very much for your in depth review. I owned phones (not mentioning the Symbian Nokia phones before) like:
Samsung Galaxy S i9000
Xiaomi Mi2s
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
LG G2 mini (my brother owned but I used it a lot too)
Xiaomi Mi A1
Poco X3 NFC (my brother owned but I used it a lot too)
Google Pixel 3a XL

I must say, the 64GB looks quite low to me. For last 2 years I had to clean files from my phone to make > 5GB storage available for more than 20 times. I have Google One with 200GB so I can upload my captured files and videos there. But lately I had to uninstall apps as well to make some space. I think for today's requirements 64GB is small. All my previous devices had sd card extension, but I do understand why they switched to no microSD (because of slower speed). I requested a review because I need display and battery benchmarks (highest brightness and battery duration).

I am not sure how accurate it will be, but if you have both the devices, can you please tell me whether the screen is more bright than pixel 3a? I own 3a XL but I also think that hardware-wise the displays are similar (though with different dpi). If you have an opportunity, please do check whether 5a is more bright under sun (or under very bright light). Thanks and Regards

I have both phones and 5a is just a couple of millimeters wider and taller. They feel almost the same in the hand. The difference is that the screen of the 5a covers all the front with a small bezel

If faster charging is not enough for you then there are many different options of power banks (portable chargers) and are safer than a spare battery

Anonymous, 20 Aug 2021So lots of small differences that add up against 4a 5g, met... moreYou are right, but I should add that the 5a is more oriented as an upgrade for people with the regular 4a or the 3a (like myself). There is where you can see and feel the differences and improvements.

beep bop boop, 22 Aug 2021Every phone supports dark modeI think he was talking about night sight mode of the camera, not the android dark interface

I prefer it to be on the front or the side of the phone, but I know a lot of people who love it on the back. It all depends on how you use your phone. There is no phone capable of satisfying everybody needs. What can be perfect for you can be annoying or useless for other people
