Big Bang for Small Bucks

This would be the first Google phone I've owned. As a long time Android user, I've owned many devices ranging from Motorola to Samsung to LG, but honestly this is an exceptional phone for the money. Boasting an 8-core processor supplemented with 6GB of RAM, complimented with a 5.8" OLED screen and a 3100+ mAh battery, my expectations are being exceedingly met. I can go on about the differences between the Pixel 4 and the 4a, but you can look at the reviews and the specs on this sight for those. I get two solid days of moderate use with the battery before needing to recharge. The call quality and image quality are exceptional. The camera is on par if not slightly better than my last LG phone and running the "vanilla" Android OS 10, I finally see what I've been missing sticking with the other manufacturers for so long. I'm really happy I switched.

Pixel 4a: Better than it should be for $350

The Pixel 4a is Google's non-5G mid ranger, and while I would recommend paying the extra $100 for the 5G model, this is still an exceptional phone. It features a 5.8" OLED display at 1080p, and looks great. The size is a perfect sweetspot for phones, allowing for a larger display while also being manageable with one hand. It's a plastic build, but features a matte coating while feels great on the hands. It also features the Snapdragon 730G, a midrange processor which is great for the basics, and some editing and moderate gaming. The battery will last you all day, even when it's capacity is smaller than other phones. Overall, a great phone that I'd recommend going for if you don't care about 5G and like smaller phones.
And ohhh boy have we not gotten into the cameras yet. It features one 12.2 megapixel rear camera, which when combined with Google's amazing software magic, can create flagship level shots in good conditions. It's struggles sometimes, for example before post processing you can notice flaws such as noise in indoor conditions, but the software and post processing can fix it right back up. Overall, the best $350 camera out there.
