Description

The Google Pixel 3a XL is a mid-range phone and a cheaper alternative to the Pixel 3 XL. A key selling point is that it has the same 12.2MP camera with Night Sight mode. The screen, however, has been downgraded: it's a 6-inch OLED display with resolution of 1080 by 2160 pixels, thicker bezels and no notch. Instead of a dual selfie camera, at the front is just a single 8MP cam. The Pixel 3a XL has a body made of polycarbonate, no wireless charging, and no IP rating for dust and water resistance, but it does have an old-school audio jack and a classic fingerprint reader. On the inside ticks a mid-range Snapdragon 670 chip alongside 4GB of RAM and a 3700mAh battery.
