Though Pixel 3a is made up of polycarbonate body but still its looks very aesthetic. The smartphone feels very premium in hand. It more or less looks like the original Pixel devices. It also features the OLED panel and comes in three color options. So overall, it’s a great looking device.

Specs wise this phone can disappoint you a bit. As it comes with a snapdragon 670 which is not justified at a price it comes with. Phone features on wireless charging and no water resistance.


Storage – 64GB

Display size – 5.6 inches OLED Panel

Resolution- 1080X2220

Battery – 3000mAh

3.5 mm Jack – Yes

Memory Card Slot – No

Front camera – 8MP

Rare camera – 12MP

Speaker – Stereo Speakers

Weight – 147g

Thickness – 8.2mm

The main highlights

The biggest highlight of this device is its camera. If camera is your priority than it’s the best smartphone camera. It has a single 12MP rare facing camera whose quality is unbeatable. It captures excellent shots during night also. Google’s camera is more of software enhancement than the hardware. That’s the reason Pixel phones still feature a single rare camera. 

Apart from this, Pixel 3a will get continuous 3 years of android update. The battery back is also excellent due to its hardware and software optimisation.

Final Thoughts

Since Pixel 3a is imported to India, it cost around 39 thousand rupees. India is a very price sensitive market. It’s very hard for this device to get sold in India. But if you are a stock android lover and camera is your priority than it would be a perfect match.
