Google Pixel 3a XL Review

Score: 78.9 / 100

Google Pixel 3a XL is a great quality cellphone released in 2019, packed with a large 6-inches display, an extremely powerful 2000 MHz Octa-Core processing unit, and 2 cameras, a 12.2 MP back side camera and an 8 mega-pixels front camera. Great! That's it? No, it's only the beginning of this extreme review.

Google decided to build this device using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SDM670 system chip, backed up by an extremely powerful 2000 MHz Octa-Core processing unit with a big 4 GB of RAM memory. This cellphone has a 64 GB awesome internal memory and although it doesn't come with an SD card slot, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games available nowadays without even thinking about how much memory is left.

This device feels much lighter than what one would think about a device like this. This phone is quite a compact cellphone, taking into consideration it packs a 6" screen and it has just 6.3" long. Being just 0.32" thick,this cellphone is extremely thin and practical. This phone is sold in 3 different color options, black, purple and white. About its aspect, this phone is mainly made with Plastic .

This cellphone features two cameras, a 12.2 megapixels back facing camera and an 8 MP front-facing camera. this device's back facing camera has a F1.8 aperture so it can take very nice photographs even in low light conditions. It also shoots videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 fps, and slow-motion videos in (HD) (1280x720) at 240 fps (8 times slower than regular videos).

The Google Pixel 3a XL includes a incredible 6 inches display with a 1080 x 2160 resolution, which makes everything look absolutely great.

This cellphone comes with amassive 3700 mAh non-replaceable battery providing the Google Pixel 3a XL an impressive battery duration. An issue to consider is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to lose its charge, though having 3700 mAh you will probably buy a new phone before that becomes a real problem.

This phone counts with WiFi capability (which it can share with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) ultra fast connectivity and also HSPA+ connection type (a lower speed 4G technology) and the fastest 3G connectivity, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM services.

This cellphone also includes a great numbre of cool characteristics like Fingerprint ID, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (for communication with other phones and accessories) and GPS Geolocation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone is being sold for about $ 167, quite the same as other similar phones. This cellphone is definitely the correct option for you no matter if you love photography, will use this device majorly for internet broswing and social networks, will use it for playing games or are looking for a phone for work.
