It’s also great that Google once again offers an AMOLED panel, ensuring that colours are vibrant and blacks are as deep as can be. There’s also the Pixel 4a’s battery, which weighs in at 3,140 mAh.
First and foremost the Pixel 4a is getting the same three years of software updates that the Pixel 4 and upcoming Pixel 5 get, and they also get the same Feature Drops as well, from Bedtime and Personal Safety to whatever fun stuff comes in the coming months after Android 11 launches. the Pixel 4a is now the cheapest unlocked phone that is compatible with Wi-Fi calling on all four carriers since AT&T continues to be an out-of-touch stick-in-the-mud when it comes to basic safety features. The Pixel 4a comes with Google’s stock Android 10 operating system, which runs well and is easy to navigate.
As midrange smartphones are now coming with a triple and even quad-cameras, the Pixel 4a’s Astrophotography feature, dead-simple camera UI, and distinct style of photography that it produces makes it competitive enough to stand out in its class. The screen is plenty bright and nicely sharp.
