Description

For the Pixel 5a Google has chosen a 6.34-inch OLED display complete with a Full-HD+ resolution and a punch hole in the top-right for the selfie camera. The Pixel 5a lands in at 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8mm, which makes it 2.3mm taller and both a little thicker and wider than the Pixel 4a. These size differences are likely down to the updated plastic unibody. It seems to bulge out more towards the edges of the phone and houses several features including a 3.5mm headphone jack on top and the usual volume rocker on the right. The Pixel 5 boasts a 12.2-megapixel main camera and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide shooter. There is also an LED flash and what could end up being a phase-detection.

almost cancelled, almost perfect (c) Rozetked
Phone owned for - less than a year

one of the longest lasting batteries in pixel ever. proven design and material, fits perfect in hand (but may seem a bit bulky after 4a and 5). good camera, but someone may be missing telephoto lens (me for example).
lacks 90Hz refresh rate and wireless charging, if you’re into that kind of things
