    Google Pixel 4A is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Ken22 from Good battery and camera, but flimsy make The battery life is really as is the picture quality. However there is a really annoying issue in that it started making a slight cracking/crackling/creaking sound when I squeeze the phone near the camera and power button. I'm extremely worried this would become a problem in the future but apparently it's not that rare of a problem. Considering the price of it, this is flimsy.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by I Chew Water from Error After Error After Error I bought this in January when about a month ago the SIM card would not be acknowledged. So taking it out and putting it back in helped temporarily, but at one point I was having to do this multiple times a week. So I got it replaced (thanks Carphone Warehouse!), and now a week after it has decided my charging cable/plug is also not worthy of its acknowledgement as well as it will not charge on the cable/plug found in the box. Everything else is fine, but this feels like a phone where a stiff breeze will put it down. In contrast, I had my prior phone for four years and only stopped using it because I dropped it onto a tile and the back shattered, even then I had continued to use it for another year just fine excluding the ongoing slithers of sharp plastic coming off the back at random times, exposing the hardware and risking cutting myself. Excluding its current tendency to snub SIM cards and charging cables/plugs, I've been finding it an okay phone for the past six months.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Paul L from Impressed with battery life. Stereo speakers initially disappointing, even with tweaking controls, but much improved using free downloaded app from Android platform. I've encountered technical issues with tablets and laptop recognising phone via USB connection and had to resort to Bluetooth alternative, resulting in slower image transfers. And for that reason star rating is lower than otherwise would be offered . Overall though satisfactory phone for price point.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by carolina from Very delicate screen If you are not extra careful with the phone, the screen got scratched very easily and it can be broken even if it falls from 5 CM high. Photos are super nice and ita a good smartphone for a low budget.
