The Pixel 6a is probably one of the best affordable phones you can get right now, at least until its successor comes along. It borrows a lot from the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro but comes at a lower cost, making it one of the best Pixel phones you can currently buy. But how does the 6a stack up in terms of size against other phones? Let's find out together.
You can check out our complete review of the the Pixel 6a. We are super excited to test out this new Google handset and pit next to its siblings.
But without further ado, let's take a look at how the Pixel 6a compares in size to other phones on the market at the moment.

More on the Pixel 6a:
Pixel 6a vs. Pixel 6 vs. Pixel 6 Pro
Starting off with a comparison between all Pixel 6 models seems rather fitting, as they share almost identical designs overall.
As already mentioned, the budget-oriented 6a is smaller than its two older brothers. With the three phones placed to each other like presented above, it almost feels like there is an invisible curve going from left to right, corresponding a price/size ratio.
By the looks of it, the Pixel 6a is small enough to bring a noticeably different look and feel compared to the more high-end models. Keep in mind that both the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are very big phones to begin with, so even though the 6a looks smaller it still can't be considered a "compact" phone.
Pixel 6a vs. Pixel 5a vs. Pixel 4a vs Pixel 3a XL
It's pit the new guy against his predecessors, the results look intriguing!
In 2019, Google tried its larger format XL version with the A-series, back when Google wasn't exactly sure what it wanted to do with its lineup. Well, the Pixel 6a seems to be the answer the tech giant and its fans were looking for.
It really feels like the 6a has struck the perfect middle ground when it comes to size, which is somewhere between the larger 3a XL/Pixel 5a, and the smaller Pixel 4a.
Pixel 6a vs. Pixel 7 vs. Pixel 7 Pro
While we are at it, why not also compare the Pixel 6 a to the newest Pixel duo from Google, the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro.
The situation here is very similar to the comparison between the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, as the general design and size have not changed by any significant margin.
Pixel 6a vs. iPhone SE (2022)
The differences between Apple's most affordable handset and that of Google is like night and day.
The Pixel 6 a is obviously the more modern-looking phone here, it is hard to disprove that fact. The only thing going for the iPhone SE (2022) design-wise is the fact that it can truly be called a compact phone by today's standards. If a bigger and better display is what you are looking for, though, the winner here is obvious.
It is somewhat funny that both of these phones are going for very similar price tags, especially when you look at them sitting next to each other.
Pixel 6a vs. OnePlus Nord 2 vs. Galaxy S21 FE
How does the Pixel 6a stack in size against other similarly priced Android phones?
Interestingly enough, it seems the Pixel 6a is the smallest in size when compared to the competition from Samsung and OnePlus. Of course, that inherently means a smaller screen size too, so it really depends what you look for more in a budget phone when it comes to size—more screen, or a smaller form factor?
