Google has decided to stick its own high-performance chipset inside the Pixel 6a (the same one as on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro), and even though it’s no match for the high-end Bionics and Snapdragons, it’s still a very fast SoC (You can also check out how the new “a” stacks against the old one in our Google Pixel 6a vs Pixel 5a comparison).
The design language has stayed the same for better or for worse, and if you like how the Pixel 6 family looks you’ll probably love the Pixel 6a as well. The horizontal camera module (Camera Bar) is there, along with the glossy back and curvy sides.
But the most important thing about the Pixel 6a is its price, obviously. At $449 this phone is a serious contender for that sweet mid range spot, currently occupied by the likes of the Galaxy A53 and the iPhone SE (2022).
Today we’re checking out if Google has hit that sweet spot with its latest phone. Are you planning on buying the Pixel 6a? It can be a great backup or second phone, and to be fair, with those specs it can be a daily driver as well.
