Score: 9.9/10

Google Pixel 4a is a breath-taking Android phone released in 2020, which features an enormous 5.8" screen, a very powerful Octa-Core processing unit running at 2.2 GHz, and 2 cameras, a 12.2 MP back side camera and an 8 megapixels front-facing camera.

Google just offers this phone in just black color. Google did a very nice design job making this cellphone weight only 5.04 ounces. The Google Pixel 4a is just 0.32 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest phones nowadays. This phone is only 5.67" long and 2.73" wide, but it manages to hold a 5.8" screen. Regarding its body design materials, the Google Pixel 4a is mostly created with Plastic and Plastic .

Google sells this cellphone with a great Octa-Core processor ticking at 2200 megahertz, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SM7150-AA chip with a large 6 GB RAM memory. This phone counts with a 128 GB great internal storage memory and although it doesn't include an external memory slot, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of applications and even the largest games available nowadays without worrying about how much storage is left.

This cellphone includes a high-tech 5.8" screen with a 1080 x 2340 resolution, which makes all images and videos look absolutely perfect.

The Google Pixel 4a has two cameras, a 12.2 megapixels back side camera and an 8 megapixels front side camera. Its back side camera lens has a 1.7 aperture so it can capture great photographs even in dark situations. It also shoots videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second, and slow motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 240 fps.

The Google Pixel 4a has a 3140 mAh big Li - Polymer non-removable battery providing this cellphone an average battery duration. An issue to consider is that this cellphone's battery isn't removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts losing capacity, though with its 3140 mAh you will probably discard this device before it becomes an issue.

This cellphone provides Wi-Fi capability (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G ultra fast data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (a bit slower 4G technology) and 3G fast internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone comes with two Nano SIM cards so it's able to work with 2 different phone numbers.

The Google Pixel 4a also features a wide variety of useful features like Fingerprint ID, NFC, Bluetooth (5.1 ) and GPS Geolocation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone costs about $ 349, not so cheap for this kind of device.
