    Im bored of my iphone. Tempted to try one of these
    Cloudane's avatar
    I just switched to the vanilla 7 (which from what I've been reading might be worth looking for a deal on) from an iPhone 13 Mini and after a week my thoughts are:

    * I much prefer the app drawer. A swipe up is a lot faster and slicker than swiping across to the library thing on the iPhone and then down, and it's easier to browse

    * Camera IMO is marginally worse - exposure always seems low (dark) coming from an iPhone and certain areas like the shadows between a wall and a ceiling I've noticed have more jpeg compression artifacts despite the fact the images are like 3MB compared to the iPhone's 700KB or so. Night sight tends to be marginally more blurry, darker (but more realistic) and with cooler tones than my eyes and my iPhone saw. It's not BAD by any means, it's the best Android camera I've had (even if that says something about Android cameras especially at this price point) but side by side comparisons with my iPhone left me conceding that the iPhone was slightly better. Nice thing though is the shots are almost always usable. I've had phones from OnePlus et al where the reviews on youtube gushed about how great the camera was but in the real world they've lagged or produced motion blur if not held perfectly steady etc.

    * Battery life is poor, but better than the iPhone 13 Mini (not difficult). But probably a letdown after an iPhone Pro.

    * You lose the screen feature where the colour temperature adjusts to match your environment - that's probably patented by Apple. At first it seems archaic seeing a cooler phone display in warm lighting but you soon forget about it.

    * I was sceptical about the facial recognition security as it doesn't have all the fancy 3D scanning of the iPhone (and I've fooled OnePlus phones with pictures of myself) but AI seems to make up for it, including making sure your eyes are open. Doesn't work in the dark though and you're relegated to the fingerprint sensor which at least with a screen protector is hit and miss.

    * I love that I can install ReVanced and e.g. watch Linus Tech Tips without all his overly excessive sponsorship stuff. You can have a patched Youtube on iOS and other sideloaded apps too but have to refresh it every week due to the App Store dev license thing.

    * Performance feels on par to me i.e. it never lags and feels buttery smooth. I've not done any scientific comparisons or feel the need to though. Google devices have come a long way since the Nexus 5X which I yeeted out of a window the 50th time the camera app lagged for almost a minute and caused me to miss capturing a fleeting moment.

    * Speakers just as good

    * I love the "Now playing" feature that auto-shazams all the time based on an internal database with little to no battery usage or data usage. Means I can satisfy my curiosity by casually glancing at it (when it detects) instead of actively running a Shazam and getting an "ooooh do you liiiike that song you should have just asked, it's soandso, why do you like that anyway you should listen to blahblahblahetcetcetc" from my friends. I just want to know what's playing without any fuss. I might not even necessarily like it!

    * The ability to have Google Assistant screen unknown calls is neat. I've heard people tend to assume it's voicemail and hang up though.

    * I use 1password and find Android's password filling, which was behind iOS a few years ago, seems better integrated than iOS nowadays.

    * You can copy text from any app even if it's not selectable text, by using the app switcher which has a "Select text" function, I find this very useful. You can do this in iOS by taking a screenshot and selecting the text from that, but it's an extra step and more camera roll clutter.

    * The third party app Island, which uses the Work Profile, is super useful for any ahem "private research" you might want to keep separate from everything else. You also have full fat multi-user support as an alternative.

    * Android Auto! (My car doesn't support CarPlay)

    * I miss iOS's ability to move the text cursor all 4 directions by pressing and holding the spacebar. You can only go forward and backward on Android.

    * App Notifications tend to be more spammy on Android, you have a LOT of controls for reducing them though but it takes a lot of time and refinement.

    * There seems to be more flexibility on Android in areas like notification sounds

    * Android doesn't suffer from Ancient App Syndrome where some older apps designed for like the iPhone 5 render in a blown up screen format

    * Duolingo has finally caught up but tends to lag behind any changes/improvements they make on the iOS version like new course structures.

    * Naturally, you open your legs to Google in terms of tracking / data collection. Personally this doesn't bother me much, I like all the AI smarts it gives me in exchange. Despite the grumbling of privacy campaigners they do actually have very good privacy controls if you can be bothered to spend the time on the privacy dashboard instead of posting tinfoil hattery on Reddit, and the EU stops them doing too much, so it's not all bad.

    * Having just USB-C for everything is nice.

    * iOS comes with iMovie and you can have nice image editors like Pixelmator for not too much. Android image and video editors, from all I've seen so far, tend to be ugly and just not very good.

    It's honestly swings and roudabouts in many ways but I do prefer the freedom and flexibility of Android, always have. I tended to switch back to iOS to have a predictably decent camera and fast updates again, but both of those issues are resolved by going Pixel. The one remaining difference is dealing with Google - expect things to change constantly and things to get randomly abandoned and shut down as they have corporate ADHD. Either Fit or Fitbit will die at some point for example. Change is generally good but can be a pain when you're used to something. (edited)

    For those of you disappointed with the battery life out of the box try to disable the option called "Mobile data always active" in Developer options.

    Always keep mobile data active, even when Wi-Fi is active (for fast network switching).

    Mine was always trying to find a 5G network at home when connected to WiFi.
  3. nectar's avatar
    As always with Google products ….. just wait - this will drop and be a real steal. At this price it’s still outstanding value for money but I see 0 reason to pay more for this over the 7

    No point just posting the code mate, some scally will use it and not even say thanks/let others know.

    Always best to offer via DM in my experience.

    The Pixel fold is a ripoff
    plewis00's avatar
    I'm intrigued but having got a Fold3 for £500 last year, I really don't see the added value here... Pixel 7a looks interesting, if a bit expensive but at least it's got a 90Hz display this time round.

    18w Wireless is nice at this price though

    Yes I can confirm that and my £50 refund was processed today.

    It's a shame the tablet is £599 in the UK and $499 in US
    DirtyQwerty's avatar
    Yeah, makes no sense.

    Pixel 7a in the US - $499
    Pixel 7a in the UK - £449

    Pixel tablet in the US - $499
    Pixel tablet in the UK - £599

    They're having a laugh with that pricing.
  10. winchman's avatar
    Not sure why you'd pay for this if you can get a 6a for £200 a lot of the time...
    Not much difference..
    Smoggy1970's avatar
    Because the 7a is better.
  11. FubarKid's avatar
    Pixel 7 was a much better deal at £290 the other day,can still be had for £349
    praevalens's avatar
    What deal is this? Thanks

    Switchy lurks on the net full time so he can bring us great mobile deals
  13. margamboy's avatar
    Give it a month or 2 and all the fanfare with a new release dies down and everyone realises spec wise your better off with the cheaper 7 and one of two things needs to happen. The 7 price increases above that of the 7a or the 7a drops below what some have been able to get the 7 for recently. My money would be on the latter. £350 within a couple of months or equivalent on contract, especially when looking at US pricing. (edited)
  14. phantompti's avatar
    Wait... £50 extra just for a colour preference? What is going on.
    alanjr_uk's avatar
    If you keep changing colour it seems to change to £449 too (only found that out after ordering non-Coral colour!)
  15. quake.ee's avatar
    So Coral is £50 more....not fair.
    praevalens's avatar
    No. Just keep changing the buds and the phone colours until it updates to 449. No idea what triggers it but eventually it will sort itself to 449
  16. 1988dave's avatar
    Need a decent contract

    Maybe around £20 a month would do
    Daniel789's avatar
    For reference I bought a pixel 7 on a 50gb idmobile contract for 20.99 a month, with £175 enhanced trade in (which was a pain in the proverbial to get but I got there in the end) and 150 Quidco cashback.

    So would I think you'll get your 20 quid a month sooner rather than later, just sit and wait a couple of months
  17. 1.5fbV's avatar
    Possible extra freebie of a phone case @MrSwitch
    quake.ee's avatar
    Is that in usa? There is no such promotion here.
  18. DonkeyKonk's avatar
    Currys have it up for order, with the ear buds but also £75 extra trade in value on top for an old phone... (They used to offer £100-£125 for such things and that may change when they Update their website for the new offers as the link to the trade in for the Pixel 7a is currently not working, but currently says £75 extra)


    Personally I am interested in the phone, but expect better deals in a few months time, and ear buds don't appeal to me. (edited)
  19. naughtyboy2020's avatar
    Coral exclusive colour is £50 more expensive at £499 (edited)
  20. yesitsjess's avatar
    I was tempted but phonearena makes it seem like a sidegrade on my Pixel 5 :/ :/
    Ricky_G5l5's avatar
    You should join the beta program, using android 14 beta 2 just now, pretty decent, slightly buggy but it's a beta version so it'll improve, and the latest beta is the most stable I've tried thus far

    Currys is doing a bonus £75 trade in towards 7a purchases. Offering £225 for my 6a.
  23. PurpleTwilight's avatar
    I currently have the Samsung galaxy s20, would this be an upgrade at all?
    Or should I stick with the s20? There's nothing wrong with it, I just fancy a new phone.
    Daniel789's avatar
    No, the only advantage of this one is that it will get more Android updates and security patches going forward
  24. Daniel789's avatar
    Hard to get excited as the Pixel 7 has been lower priced than this already
  25. ohsomeonenew's avatar
    Where is my pixel fold at?
    ohsomeonenew's avatar
    Oh my. Fold 4 at 599 looking sweet right now
  26. L_GRL7's avatar
    Waiting for 199 deal in Black Friday
  27. godphilla84's avatar
    £165 trade in for my S22 is a bit poor even b grade at cex is £222 cash. Will wait a bit longer I think.
    blowndiffuser's avatar
    I'd say the Pixel 7 let alone the 7a is a downgrade from a S22.
  28. eldaniel's avatar
    I moved from Xiaomi note 12 pro to Pixel 6a and this put off Google phones for life. Does not even come close to redmi 12 pro. The only advantage supposed to be camera but just tried it at night and is very grainy. Not sure how 7a is but not taking my chances. I am so disappointed that I will be selling it and going back to Xiaomi.
  29. f28476's avatar
    Tempted to upgrade my Pixel 6. Offering £200 trade in. Good upgrade do you think @MrSwitch?
    MrSwitch's avatar
    MrSwitch Author
    Possible side grade, but I'd take the G2 over the original Tensor any day
  30. Macey7000's avatar
    I am so tired of all the companies throwing in their earbuds. Just give me the phone at the best price please.
    quake.ee's avatar
    Remove headphones and use 10% code to get it down to £404.
  31. HUKD123's avatar
    How is this hot?
    Pixel 7 was sub £450-500 with pixel buds pro.
    So the upgraded phone and upgraded buds for the same price. I understand the case for not being able to go back in time, but I imagine this will drop super fast, so perhaps hold off and go forward in time
  32. hecatae's avatar
    I'm being offered £140 trade in for my iPhone 8
    MrSwitch's avatar
    MrSwitch Author
    Pretty good that, considering you can buy the 8 for under £100 now
  33. Cloudane's avatar
    Well now I feel like a mug! Just last week bought a Pixel 7 from the Amazon Warehouse like new for £444 (one microscratch went under Amazon's radar but eh) and thought I'd done pretty well. But turns out I could've waited a week, spent an extra fiver and got a better specced phone brand new with a bigger battery and some buds to go with it. Oh well.

    Usually the A series has a lot more corner cuts like no wireless charging and previous gen camera. I really didn't expect it to be a better and cheaper phone than the 7. (edited)
    ohsomeonenew's avatar
    7 is still better.
  34. jazzuk777's avatar
    Still topping out at 128gb with no expansion slot? That's a bit off-putting
    DragonQ's avatar
    Yep. The lack of a 256 GB option means I cannot consider the Pixel 7a to replace my Galaxy S10e. The 128 GB I have now is always full because most applications simply don't let you use the SD card slot, or perform poorly when doing so. The Pixel 7 is too large and heavy for my liking so looks like I'll be waiting another generation at least.
  35. kencol's avatar
    Had bought the 7, but sold it as it was like holding a house brick. This is over 190 gram and 9mm thick, so not a lot better.
    Karogoma's avatar
    Pixel 3 was my perfect-sized phone until it died on me a month back. Now searching for a similar sized replacement, and the perfect phones I could find were Galaxy S23 and Zenfone 9, but unfortunately they're both still way too expensive.
  36. zomgwtfbbq's avatar
    Cold, sorry. With the sub-£400 deals on the Pixel 7 these last few weeks, the 7a is pretty much dead on arrival.

    Even moreso with the heap of garbage that is the Pixel fold -- Samsung is still having major QC issues with the hinges and displays on their 4th iteration of folding phones. Considering Google's terrible track record on failing to make even a decent slab phone after 7 generations and always prioritising cost-cutting, I wouldn't go anywhere near their Fold.
  37. 8ndy's avatar
    Student discount also works as long as you don’t mind losing the buds
  38. Redinho's avatar
    The deal for the regular 7 last minute I picked up worked out cheaper than this by a lot!
  39. qw3rtyhhng's avatar
    Also don't forget a lot of you may have £40 store credit from the glitch.
    MrSwitch's avatar
    MrSwitch Author
    I do, and it applies, so the 7a is £369 for me
