    Google Pixel 4A is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Art8 from Google Pixel 4A I was very qurious about Google Pixel smartphones and I had Pixel 4a but honostly it is not my smarthphone. Buttons for power on/off and volume are swaped which is very strange and inconvinient. Also with this white button on the black phone, who is sticking out too much .... realy ? The battery is not long lasting either. I think that the only pros are that storage is big enough and display is not so big and you can use the phone only with one hand. In my opinion Google Pixel 4a looks like a cheap phone and for that price I can get a better smartphone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by markytech from Good mid-range phone I usually purchase higher-end Android phones but this time I wanted to see what a mid-range one felt like and I really like the stock Android look and feel over and above the "features" that other manufacturers put on their Android phones. The Google Pixel 4a the screen is really good and the AMOLED screen really works well in all light levels. My only issue with the screen is the camera cut-out which because the screen is smaller than I am used to feels too large for it. I'd much prefer a bigger bezel. Some apps have a problem with the cut-out and you miss some of the text etc... Battery is really good and can easily get a full day out of it when browsing for a lot of the day and watching an hour of video. Charging is very quick using the included adapter but it is a shame that this phone doesn't include wireless charging even at this price point! The body of the phone is really nice to hold in my smaller than average hand (for a male). My only concern has been how slippery it is in the hand. The back is very smooth and the phone definitely needs a case on it. With the small bezels I would only recommend using a more rugged case as a thin silicone case will not offer the protection needed when dropped from a height. Fingerprint sensor is on the back which is no doubt to save money. It is a shame they didn't put it on the side of the phone as that is much more convenient when the phone is in a dock. The response of the sensor is one of the quickest I've used. The camera app works well and the photos come out really nice. It can take a little longer to process the pictures but that is to be expected with the mid-range processor. I've had this phone for 4 weeks now and there is no real world reason for me to go back to using a flagship phone. I probably wouldn't buy it if I was a big mobile gamer but I'm not so this meets all my needs. Highly recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by LJD901 from Easy to set up I found this phone really easy to set up and get the data transferred from my previous phone to this. I like the finger print on the back, although sometimes I find it can play up slightly but this can be turned off and pin code protected I think the quality of the phone is great for its value. Camera is great and the zoom is also good. Battery life is the best part I can be sure that a charge will last at least 2 days depending on use. The phone is a good size and the screen is clear Instructions when setting the phone up was really clear and it was a quick set up. There is many some amazing features on the phone Would deffo recommend

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Lily1 from Great camera, good phone This phone has the best camera I've ever owned. If you want a mid-range phone with an brilliant camera, this is the phone for you. One thing I love is the night-vision-mode; I took some beautiful photos of my girlfriend's birthday. On my old phone at her previous birthday she was just a brown blob, because it couldn't do a good job with a black-skinned person at night. The camera also has loads of features like stabilisation, slow-motion videos, etc, etc. There's a lot so I haven't got the hang of all of them yet. Other than that it's a pretty good phone, good memory, good processor. It's a little smaller than my previous phones, which has advantages (fits into pockets easily, light) and disadvantages (my old phone had a bigger screen which was good for watching TV). Sound quality is also good. Though I like to listen to music really loud, and the volume doesn't go up really high. It's fine for TV though. A downside: the battery isn't great. Not trash, but not amazing. That's why I'm giving it 4 stars, not 5. That's not as big a downside as I first expected, because it seems to charge up very fast. It takes like an hour and a half to charge from really low to full. But I'd still like a longer-lasting battery. Also, I dropped it on my bathroom tiles and it didn't break. Though I would not advise testing that! :)
