    Hamza, 16 Nov 2023Yes i haveAlmost other Android phones have a battery of 5000, which is better.
    But the pixel phone's battery is also low and the camera is also only 12 megapixels, which is very low.
    I think the other phone is the best equivalent to the pixel price.
    What do you think I want to buy today?

            DON'T BUY. The 5a has an average lifetime of approximately a year before the motherboard burns off. Check the disproportionate amount of complaints regarding 5a's bricking in middle of the day for no apparent reason and never turning on again. This phone has no removable memory cards and its automatic backups to Google Drive won't contain all the info and files, so when it bricks many things will be lost for good. DON'T BUY.

              purchased Pixel 5a in Indy in US in Dec 2021. Last week all of sudden while on a call , it switched off . Stopped working. I gave it to its Thane Authorised Service office for inspection & estimate. After two days I got its message its motherboard is gone & will require 250$ for repair. I didn't collect the phone & bought a new Chinese phone. What's meaning of buying a costly branded phone. Worst phone experience.

                Motherboard died in February 2023, not a recommended buy.

                  I bought this in April (on the Google Store), and it died in November. :( It was a great phone but didn't even last a year! Since it was under a year it was in warranty. I took it to UbreakIFix and they said the motherboard fried, so I had to send it to Google, and they sent me a refurbished one. Disappointed it didn't last a year and now I'm worried for this one.

                        We bought 3 5a w/ 5g phones for our family. Bottom line, it is the first phone we've ever had that regularly overheats. Every one of them has this problem.

                              OVERHEATS. I order warranty replacement and it OVERHEATS, overheats to the point it shuts down.
                              Overheats when doing any one of these things:
                              -multitasking like; charging while doing navigation and streaming music,
                              -recording video, just a few minutes of 4k
                              -shooting pictures on hot day.

                              Google has no advice other than to quit doing those things!!!!

                                There is nothing bad in the phone I play games it doesn't lag or heat and it is fast the camera is out of this world simple magnificent battery is another thing one of the best phones ever

                                  Jack, 13 Sep 2021The moment Pixel's "A" series of phones get ... moreDon't think they will. Pixel 6a will already have the same great Tensor chip as Pixel 6, same ultrawide camera, dual glass design, and 60Hz screen. But it will be $100 cheaper. They need to cut costs somewhere.

                                        I have Pixel 5A with Android 12 OS. My compass is not working with any compass app. Sensor accuraccy is very low inspite of waving the phone with 8 like motions. IDoes this problem exist for other users as well?Is it hw or se issue? Any solution?
