Our Google Pixel 3a XL video review is up

Yordan, 06 June 2019

After three generations of flagship-only devices, the latest smartphone lineup of Google finally has a midrange entry to the portfolio - the Google Pixel 3a XL, which we already got a detailed text review. Now, the video is also out, and we have Ricky to explain all the neat things about the device and what are the frustrations of having a midrange Pixel as a daily driver.

For the sweet price of $479/€479/INR44,999, the Pixel 3a XL offers an OLED, stereo speakers, pure Android experience and the impressive camera from its bigger flagship brother. However, to keep the cost low, Google has put a plastic body, rendering wireless charging unavailable, could’ve brought more RAM and storage and the cool wide-angle selfie camera is no more.

There is also the bezel experience that is a subjective matter - most will find it borderline offensive, but some might think it is actually better for grip. The 3.5 mm audio jack makes a return to Pixel phones, which is good no matter how you look at it.

One damn phone... In love with, camera and battery smooth. I am a beta tester now... waiting for official Android Q. In that we can use dual sim.

I own a Pixel 3a and I can tell you that batterylife is great. Replaced my Nokia 7 Plus for this phone and I must say this one had a better batterylife but the 3a last a whole day with ease. I am an average user. Look for the web for other reviews.
