Pixel 8a feels great in your hand, with its smooth finish and matt back cover. And it's made with recycled materials.4

1 Designed to comply with dust and water protection rating IP67 under IEC standard 60529 when each device leaves the factory, but the device is not water or dust proof. The accessories are not water- or dust-resistant. Water resistance and dust resistance are not permanent conditions and will diminish or be lost over time due to normal wear and tear, device repair, disassembly or damage. Phone is not drop-proof, and dropping your device may result in loss of water/dust resistance. Liquid damage voids the warranty. See g.co/pixel/water for details. 2 For ‘over 24 hours’: Estimated battery life based on testing using a median Pixel user battery usage profile across a mix of talk, data, standby and use of other features. Average battery life during testing was at least 31 hours. For ‘Up to 72 hours’: Estimated battery life based on testing using a median Pixel user battery usage profile across a mix of talk, data, standby and use of limited other features that are default in Extreme Battery Saver mode (which disables various features including 5G connectivity). For both claims: Battery testing conducted on a major US operator network in California in late 2023 on pre-production hardware and software using default settings, except that, for the ‘up to 72 hours’ claim only, Extreme Battery Saver mode was enabled. Tests begin with phones fully charged. Battery life depends upon many factors and usage of certain features will decrease battery life. Actual battery life may be lower. 3 Wireless charger sold separately. 4 Recycled aluminium, glass and plastic are at least 24% of product based on weight.
