Design and display

Bright, super screen

The Google Pixel’s Full HD+ display is the perfect screen for all your favourite content. Whether you’re cycling through social clips on your break, or catching up on Netflix on the train home, everything looks great on this 6-inch AMOLED screen.

Long lasting battery

You’ll never get caught short again thanks to the Pixel 3A XL’s fast charging battery – you can get up to 7 hours of use in just 15 minutes. It lasts all day too, so you can stream, surf and generally get things done.


Perfect pics

The 12.2MP camera is here to take your photos to the next level. If you’re out after dark your photos still come out great thanks to Night Sight, while Portrait mode always get striking results. Motion Auto Focus makes sure everyone looks great in group shots – even that one friend who’s always making silly hand gestures.

Endless storage

When you’re taking photos of everything – friends, architecture, your cat – you might get a bit worried about running out of space. The Pixel 3A XL has space for everything thanks to unlimited Google Photos storage. Your pics get beamed up into the Cloud for safe-keeping, and it’s free!

Under the hood

Google Assistant helps you out

Google Assistant does so much. Skip songs, send a text, check the weather, you can even find out if your train’s running on time. All this and you don’t have to press a button. Just use your voice, ask away and let Google do the rest.


Safe and secure

It’s important to keep all your digital info safe. The Pixel 3A XL’s Titan M Security chip helps protect your smartphone from online threats, so all your data and passwords aren’t compromised. Take that, hackers.

Google Pixel 3A XL is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the price! I bought this two weeks ago and it's an amazing device! I was using a mate 20 Pro and with the same each use, the pixel lasts all day, while the 20 Pro lasts till 17:00... Screen is sharp and cannot see difference from the mate, and with only one camera, the photos taken are amazing! It's only 64 GB, but you can save loads to the cloud... I have 130 apps and still not using more then 22 GB of the phone! Fully recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just fantastic!! I have been an IPhone user for a number of years. I was due an upgrade from the iPhone 7.. I was looking at the iPhone XR and the newly released SE and I just didn't fancy them. I looked at alternatives and came across the 3a XL. After looking at reviews I decided to go upgrade to this and I am glad that I did. I am paying quite a bit less per month for the contract with more data. I love the look and size of the phone, the battery is outstanding - I charged the phone up full about 26 hours ago and it's still on 40% charge after some pretty heavy use - I have been using it for work, emails and all the usual stuff like what's app and social media. The Camera is brilliant, I walk along and take lots of photos (mostly of my dog!) And there's no comparison to my previous iPhone - my daughter has the iPhone 11 and to me the photos are more detailed. The 3 important things in a phone to me is the battery longevity, camera and ease of use. This phone beats all my expectations I am really pleased with it. Personally, if I didn't know it was a midrange phone I wouldn't have said it was. 5 starsFrom me! Also I have upgraded with carphone warehouse for 10 years and as usual the service was outstanding!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic cheaper alternative to the regular Pixel Had this a couple of weeks now and in reallt surprised how good this phone is. Other than some slight differences from the front (and no notch) you wouldn't know this wasn't a Pixel 3. The feel is very similar and build quality is great for a plastic phone with no give anywhere. Because it's cheaper there are obviously differences but the 400 pound saving far outweighs those differences. The screen is vibrant and crisp with a different protection to Gorilla glass. It is good for keys and coins (level 6 scratch protection) buy to be honest i always look after my phone so not an issue for me. Only 4GB RAM and a slower chipset but unless you play the best games you wouldn't know. Fantastic (same) camera as Pixel 3. All-round great performer and a real eye opener that midrange phones can be this good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pixel 3a xl Great camera, great battery. Everything else is pretty mediocre. It's a very buggy phone with lots of issues with the OS. Also Google are just as bad as Apple....want to cast your screen...oh you'll need a chromecast for that....stick with Samsung....
