Google simply took the wraps off its newest smartphone: the Pixel 3A, a less expensive model of its flagship Pixel telephone that begins at simply $400, or roughly half of what the extra highly effective Pixel Three prices.

If you wish to know whether or not the Pixel 3A is nice, I’d suggest studying my colleague Dieter Bohn’s assessment (spoiler: it’s excellent, particularly for the worth). However the query isn’t whether or not the Pixel 3A is nice — it’s whether or not the common Pixel 3 (and Pixel Three XL) are ok to justify spending twice as a lot.

First off, let’s get to the largest distinction: the processor. Merely put, the Pixel Three has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, a flagship-class Android processor (even whether it is final yr’s mannequin). The Pixel 3A has a Snapdragon 670 chipset — it’s good, nevertheless it’s not the very best, and the Pixel Three shall be sooner to launch apps, load webpages, and course of extra effect-laden footage. If that’s $400 price of a dealbreaker for you, stick to the Pixel 3.

The screens on the pricier Pixels are additionally higher, utilizing Corning’s higher-quality Gorilla Glass as an alternative of the Dragontrail glass on the Pixel 3A. And the construct high quality on the extra premium telephones is nicer too: the Pixel 3A is basically product of polycarbonate. It’s additionally not water-proof, and lacks wi-fi charging (though it does have a headphone jack, which its pricier sibling lacks).

And naturally, there’s the rear digicam, which is almost the identical for the Pixel 3A because the Pixel 3, together with Google’s a lot vaunted Evening Sight function — in all probability the Pixel 3A’s largest promote, and undoubtably the very best smartphone digicam on a telephone on this value vary.

For those who’ve bought a Pixel 2, we’ve included that right here as nicely, do you have to be contemplating an improve. Except you actually miss a headphone jack, although, you’re in all probability higher off simply ready for Google to launch an up to date flagship Pixel within the fall (particularly if you happen to’re on a two-year installment plan and purchased your Pixel 2 in October 2017 when it first launched).

In the end, although, onerous specs received’t ever inform the entire story, however at the very least at a fowl’s-eye look, there’s much more in frequent between the Pixel Three and the Pixel 3A than is totally different. And for a tool that prices half as a lot, that’s a fairly good place to begin.
