1 Compared to MSRP of unlocked Pixel 5 phone on the Google Store in the US. Requires a 5G data plan (sold separately). 5G service and roaming not available on all operator networks or in all areas and may vary by country. Contact operator for details about current 5G network performance, compatibility and availability. Phone connects to 5G networks, but 5G service, speed and performance depend on many factors including, but not limited to, operator network capabilities, device configuration and capabilities, network traffic, location, signal strength and signal obstruction. Actual results may vary. Some features not available in all areas. Data rates may apply. See g.co/pixel/networkinfo for info. 2 Up to 18W wired charging rates are based upon use of the included charger plugged into a wall outlet. Actual results may be slower. 3 For 'All day': Maximum battery life based on testing using a mix of talk, data, standby and use of other features. Testing was conducted on two major operator networks using Sub-6 GHz non-standalone 5G (ENDC) connectivity. For 'Up to 48 hours': Maximum battery life is based on testing using a mix of features including talk, data and standby, and limited use of other features that are set as the default in Extreme Battery Saver mode (which disables various features including 5G connectivity). Testing was conducted on two major operator networks. For both claims: Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 battery testing conducted by a third party in California in mid 2020 on pre-production hardware and software using default settings, except that, for the 'up to 48 hour claim' only, Extreme Battery Saver mode was enabled. Battery life depends upon many factors, and usage of certain features will decrease battery life. Actual battery life may be lower. 4 Android version updates for at least 3 years from when the device first became available on the Google Store in the US.

Google Pixel 4A 5G is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone for the money Fantastic phone. Nearly all the functionality of a Samsung or Apple flagship for a fraction of the price. With a headphone jack!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great phone Great Phone! It definitely lives up to all the expectations of a Google Pixel. Moving up from a Huawei P20 Pro I wasn’t sure what to expect of the camera quality, but it is great quality with the built in AI tech. The overall matt black finish is very sleek and even nice to hold, do not have to worry about fingerprints and smudges like most other phones these days. The operating system is very smooth and fast and I have had no issues yet. Haven’t been able to test the 5G as I am on a 4G network but even then, no issues with connectivity at all. The quality of the screen is also second to none, 1080p streaming on this is a dream. Overall, would definitely recommend this phone, especially considering its as good as other phones on the market that are nearly double the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good improvements I have had the Google Pixel 2 for the last couple of years and then decided it was time to upgrade to the Google Pixel 4A(5G). After using the phone for almost a month I can say that this phone is a substantial upgrade from the google pixel 2 I previously had. One of the first things I noticed was how much the camera quality has been improved, as I can take good photos on my phone finally. I feel that navigating around the phone does take some time to get use to as there are no buttons, but once you do it makes the experience much better. There are some moments that when I’m trying to navigate a webpage the input doesn’t work if I don’t swipe the exact way it wants me to which gets annoying over time. I’ve had an android phone for as long as I can remember and this is very familiar, so if you’ve used an android phone before you’ll pick this up pretty quickly, which is a good thing in my opinion. One of the downsides is the phone is a lot more delicate and less sturdy than my previous phone, I dropped it onto the carpet and the screen broke, which is something I did with my other phone and had no problem. Overall, I enjoy the upgrade and happy with quality and improvements

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better. It has good features, simple to use, good battery life as well. Its lightweight so doesn't feel sturdy. Camera is not the best. I personally didn't like navigation layout and the buttons are on right side. For the price given its perfect for teenagers or someone new to smartphones.
