Google decided to invest in the intermediary cell phone segment with the Pixel 3A in 2019.. It was not a great success due to its lagged design with excessive edges hardware below the medium and battery. That was short lived.. All of this has been fixed in Pixel 4a.. Do we now have a good intermediary with quotpurequot Android? This is what we will check in this analysis.. The Pixel 4a has a plastic body and does not try to innovate in design.. What matters is that the edges have been reduced with the adoption of a hole shaped notch.. This made the new Google intermediary more compact, even with the increase in screen.. The rear now has a completely matte finish, and that even includes the biometric reader.. The layout of the camera follows the same pattern adopted in the most expensive models of the brand, with a bouncing block that includes a two tone LED flash. You will have a smartphone that is better to hold even more compact and lightweight. The Pixel 4 sights in the public. That is tired of big guys cell, where even entry level models come to market with more than 6quot screen.. Google Phones do not bring slot MicroSD, but at least we now have 128 GB of storage.. The model cheaper is not certified IP68, as seen in Pixel 4, but this was expected because of the price reduction.. Other technologies such as wi, fi, Bluetooth and NFC are the same in both.

. The Pixel fourth screen is also the OLED type. It just doesnt have the high update rate of the most expensive model.. Okay, its rivals also have a 60 Hz panel.. The highlight of Googles phone is the high brightness of the screen that ensures good viewing, even on the most sunny days. Compared to Pixel 3a. We have a great evolution. It seems that Google left the LG aside and decided to bet on Samsung as a supplier. The infinite contrast of the OLED technology ensures black, perfect vibrant colors, but without exaggerating there are three profiles: the user. can choose. Lher one changes the saturation according to the content of the screen, but you can choose this manually between the other two profiles.. The viewing angle is wide and the experience delivered by Pixel is great.. We can even say that it is among the best intermediaries that we test when it comes to image. And best of all, it has stereo sound to complement the multimedia experience., While most manufacturers continue to limit their middlemen with mono sound.. The audio played by Pixel 4a is not the most balanced and tends to be very high, pitched, which can result in a little distortion when the volume is at maximum.. The important thing is that the sound is powerful and better than others in the segment.. It does not come with the headset in the box, but you can connect any headset. You have to the P2 input on the top of the device.

. The sound delivered by Pixel is loud and clear. Making it a great option for listening to music with professional headphones. Performance has never been the strong point of the Pixel line, even though Google phones come with good hardware and pure system. That should be well tuned.. At least things are improving and the Pixel 4a delivers expected performance for a device in the segment and was even faster in our tests than others with Snapdragon 730G, as is the case with the Moto G9 Plus.. Having 6GB of RAM helps a lot to hold many applications and games in the background, the agile response time of the screen also improves the experience. Even though the panel is only 60 Hz. In benchmarks, we have above average scores and will please those who care about AnTuTu results.. The Pixel 4a is not a Gamer phone but runs any Android game without gagging. In PUBG. It was possible to play in the high HD configuration and in the others we had the experience at close to 60 FPS.. Unfortunately, there is no tool to extract better performance or limit features and notifications. While you are playing at least the Google intermediary does not suffer from overheating, even though you spend hours playing. Another point that the Pixel line always disappointed was the battery Google continues with the craze to include small batteries in their cell phones, but, as the Pixel 4a Is a compact device? You cannot expect 5000 mAh. At least Android 11 has the best power management, and now we see good autonomy for a phone with a little more than 3000 mAh.

. The autonomy goes far beyond the Pixel 3a, but it can still be insufficient for those who do not leave the cellphone even a minute.. You may need to charge a 2nd charge in the early evening, but at least the charging time is not as long your battery goes from 0 to 100. In less than an hour and a half. With a fast charge of 15 minutes, you will have 27 of the battery recovered, which allows you to have a few extra hours of moderate use.. The Pixel 4 coming out of the box with Android 10, but already has Android 11 and December security patch available.. Its biggest differential, is to receive updates before others and with updates guaranteed for three years.. The system is clean and flows very well as expected from a Pixel. Pressing. The power button gives you shortcuts to control smart electronics in your home, as well as payment information with Google Play.. You may have seen that Motorola’s recent releases allow you to customize the Android interface, and this is also present in the Pixel 4a and you can change the font, icons and prominent colors of the system.. There are new shortcuts, like switching between the rear and front camera. When rotating the phone, it is similar to what we have in some from Motorola, but it does not serve to open the camera application. And speaking of the camera. It may look like the Pixel 4a and is obsolete by bringing only one sensor in the rear, while rivals already bet in conjunction with 4 cameras.

. The resolution remains the same as last generation, but now has a wider focal aperture to help in dark scenarios.. Camera has always been Google’s forte and the Pixel 4a does a good job with its unique rear. Sensor. Google’s HDR algorithm always comes into play to reduce artifacts and noise without sacrificing photo. Details. Pixel gets the colors right, but if you prefer a cooler tone to work on editing later, you can use night mode indoors. In night scenes. This is where the Pixel 4a stands out. The most. Here it is well above the competition with clearer photos and with little noise. Even if you use the 2x zoom, you will still have clean images with the night mode activated. In fact, it is very rare to see an intermediate phone with such efficient night mode.. The background blur is limited by having only a single camera.. In many cases we see noticeable flaws, but the important thing is that it works with plants and animals.. Do you miss a macro or dedicated camera for blurring Google could have invested, at least in a secondary with an ultra wide lens. The front camera is the same as the previous generation and can record good selfies in any type of scenery and lighting.. Your only problem is in my distant fixed focus.. The impression we have is that the cell phone always focuses on the background and not on the person leaving the selfies and softened. To solve this problem.

Just use the portrait mode that completely blurs the background of the photos.. Some flaws close to the person’s face, especially at the tips of the ears and hair, are noticeable.. Still. The results are better than seen with the rear camera.. The Pixel 4a can shoot 4K at a maximum of 30 fps or Full HD up to a maximum of 60 frames per second. When shooting at 30 FPS. You will have sharp images with great colors.. The focus is agile and electronic stabilization is efficient.. Now, when switching to 60 fps, you will lose sharpness in exchange for more fluidity in the videos. There is a mode called quotCinematicquot which basically works like slow motion. Footage. The quality drops a lot, especially at night.. The front camera is also quite limited in dark scenarios, but you can use the screen lighting to brighten the videos.. The Pixel 4a is a good intermediary phone, but it is not sold here and it will be expensive to import. What would be the alternatives in the national market. There is the Moto G9 Plus with the same hardware. However, it does not deliver the same. Fluid performance. Motorola’s intermediary has a more complete set of cameras with an ultra wide and macro lens, but the Pixel takes the best in the quality of the photos. On battery. We have little advantage for the G9 Plus.. The Galaxy A51 is a good intermediary for Samsung, but has no chance against the Pixel 4a.

. The intermediary of Google beat performance and camera, however tied in battery autonomy. Already from Xiaomi, we have the Redmi Note 9S, which has a battery that lasts much longer and brings some differentials for games. However, it loses in other aspects.. It is a pity that Google does not officially launch its cell phones in Brazil.. The Pixel 4a would be successful for being a compact phone, amid so many quotbricksquot, even more for delivering a great multimedia experience being agile, to run applications and games having a decent battery and taking great photos, especially at night, with its efficient night mode.. The front camera. Could have auto focus, but most cell phones, even some top of the line – phones, don’t.. Its biggest weakness – is limited availability.. If you are lucky enough to import one at a good price, you will have a very competent intermediate phone in hand and best of all, with quick updates for a long time.
