3a is effectively a downgrade from the 2. It doesn't have the visual core chip, it's plastic build quality instead of aluminium / glass. The battery life should be better. A 3 or 3XL is an upgrade but not by much. The Pixel 4 is an overpriced joke phone.

The pixel 3 has bad battery life, the 3a has excellent battery life

but the 3a does not have wireless charging, dual selfie cams, free full resolution storage on google photos

if it was me I’d wait for the rumoured Pixel 4a in May as the pixel 2 is still an excellent phone

I replaced mine with an iPhone 11 Pro and ultimately regret it as the camera is better on the pixel,

I'd always go for the best processor personally, but better battery life I believe on the A series

Was thinking the 3 myself because of the processor and it also feels more premium. Just read a lot of good about the 3a. She does keep her phones for a number of years
I've had the 3A since launch and have no regrets
is this locked to EE, I have read that sometimes you can't unlock them

Personally my choice is 3a battery is a lot better. But no wide front camera, no free original quality storage, and no IP rating

Thanks for pointing out the no free full photo storage, I didn't realize this. This is probably my wife's favourite feature. Do you think the pixel 4a will also omit this?

Also really surprised to hear the pixel 2 takes better photos then the iPhone 11!

yes as the pixel4 no longer hs this feature. You get the normal free google photo storage, which is compressed ( doesn't make much difference on photos but can make a difference on videos, espeically if shot at 4k)

Not sure about an iphone 11, but I found the pixel (3 and 3a) took better photos than a mate 20 pro and p20 pro, and my wifes iphone x

Genuinely the pixel 2 takes better photos front and back cameras

I especially note that the iPhone struggled with moving subjects and produces a blurry photo WAY more often than the pixel. I mostly take photos of my greyhound being an idiot, so I noticed straight away. Night mode is the same, moving subjects blur, pixel normally works it’s magic and gets you a usable photo.

not everyone is so fussy, but I have become so due to the Pixel being so reliable for photos

videos are not so good, but I take lots more photos than videos so that’s my preference

The Pixel 4/XL don't have full resolution photo storageon Google Photos online so the 4A is very unlikely to as well.
Edited by: "fishmaster" 21st Dec 2019
Yep google have dropped this it seems, but I’d hope the 4a is going to be a bit of an upgrade for the pixel 2 since it’ll be 3 years younger regardless if it’s mid range .. we’ll see what

No. The Pixel 3a has slower multi thread performance, so slower app performance and installation performance. It lacks the visual core chip, it has a plastic build quality, the battery life is the only real thing that's better. It's not what I'd call an upgrade more of a side step to nowhere.

I disagree.

The 3a is, IMO, the best Pixel, followed by the small Pixel 2. What the 3a gives up in speed, it gains in stamina.

It doesn't get mentioned enough but like the iPhone XS, XR and 11, the 3a is the only Pixel that supports dual sim dual standby via eSim.

The Pixel 3 has many issues/bugs including poor battery life and poor reception. Clearly such issues would impair the usability of what is supposed to be a communication device.

The 3a isn't an upgrade over the 2 that's the point. It's missing quite a few features of the 2. It has battery life going for it, but in every other respect it's a downgrade. If it was an upgrade then I would have bought it as I have a Pixel 2 which is on its last legs with the battery.

You aren't wrong. Several features were omitted from the Pixel 3a, but then they had to be, otherwise it'd cannibalise sales of the flagship pixels. I'm sorry but the Pixel 3 should not be on anyone's shortlist.
It's very understandable that consumers will consider phones from Samsung, Apple, Huawei or OnePlus that provide a flagship feature set without buggy hardware.

If someone had to choose a brand new Pixel to live with for the next 2 years and had researched about the Pixel 3 issues, they would surely come to the conclusion that the Pixel 3a worth the strongest consideration.
I've had a pixel 2, pixel 3, pixel 3 XL and now a pixel 3a XL. I don't find any lag on the 3a XL, I used to experience lag with apps on 3xl. Battery life is at least double of a 3xl. No IP rating and no free original quality updates was a big loss but something I can live with
Well reading this comment section has almost ruined getting a 3 for me! 👏🏼
I’m trying desperately to upgrade from an ip6s -which pixel do you recommend?

Ive had them both, the 3A XL is an upgrade, better battery, the screen is a lot better than the 2XL ,the battery is great, no lag at all.

2XL might have a little more grunt, but not by much, and the camera is a bit better.

The pixel visual unit doesn't do much really.
