Very good review per usual. I'm wondering if the 4a is the better buy if I'm not getting the 6? I want a good camera and video camera. TY.

They quietly discontinued the 5, 5A and even the 4A with 5G here in the UK a while before the Pixel 6 got properly announced, seems like they don't want any 5G competition cannibalising their sales.

If they want to make Pixel 6 sell more, it's time for them to expand to other markets. I'd definitely buy a 6a with Tensor chip though, that'll be the dopest budget phone.

Google would sell more phones, if they open official stores in many places. I'm living in Poland, no official Google store available, so even if I like pixel a lot...I can't buy it. That's sucks as hell.

The 5a 5g release was perfectly timed for me. I wanted (well needed honestly, I've been running off a gifted obsolete s7 for two years now, ugh) a phone with a great camera that does the essentials and will have support as long as possible as up till now I'd largely used hand-me-downs with limited future update support. I'm not interested in paying extra for the pixel 6 due to my own budget and even a pixel 6a I imagine is going to be around a 600-700 dollar device at a low estimate. I'm very excited for their success though and I hope the pixel 6 manages to compete with the devices it's trying to compete with so that google can keep putting out better and better budget and mid-ranged models for us normies and people who don't want to rely on financing and credit for phones. I see the pixel 5a 5g lasting me 4-5 years with how I treat devices and with the proposed EOL and the care program, but I'd love for them to be successful enough with the Pixel 6 and their own cpu architecture to have tempting budget friendly upgrades to offer me before then.

I have a Moto G fast atm. This seems like the perfect mid tier upgrade for me from what I've seen. Anything cheaper is not enough of an upgrade yet anything higher in specs is too expensive of an upgrade for an upgrade I don't need.

You say like not seeing a design change is a bad thing, except it's often quite the opposite. When you have a great design that feels good in the hand, why bother changing it. Just so people know you're not a peasant running around with last gen? Because that's the only valid reason I can think of why one would change a perfectly good design.

Well, I just ordered one. The second I saw it was available, I ordered it. I have an old 3a XL that is starting to get tired. One thing I have to say is that even though the specs are just like the 4A that's partly because the 4A was packed with features. For that cost, the RAM and everything is just incredible.

I'm currently using the Pixel 4a 5G and there are things that are frustrating about it. Especially the overheating issue when livestreaming or just living in California during the summer. So the Pixel 6 sounds really tempting. Even this 5a sounds tempting cuz of the bigger battery and waterproofing. But I'm wondering if I should just wait until the Pixel 6a that will hopefully be running on the Tensor chip as well. Thanks for the informative video once again!!!

Sherri T[A]P Me!! To Have [S]EX With Me Prije 16 dana
So, this is my new phone. I've been a very faithful pixel user for years and years and years. Ironically the only reason I purchased this phone was because there was a (I didn't know this at the time) massive software issue with the battery that essentially turned my 4xl into a brick. so hearing that the only improvement is the battery is a huge bonus for me because, well, that's really the only thing I didn't like about my 4xl. That and it's almost impossible to find people to fix this phone as it isn't as universally serviceable as other phones. As iphones have switched to USB C ports, I no longer have the issue of being randomly stranded somewhere and not having a charger because most people have them. To me, pixels have the superior camera and that's kind of important to me as a (cringe) "influencer". For me the camera, and the integration with google stuff makes the pixels a no brainer, but when they break (which is honestly rare), they are incredibly stressful to fix.

Stop acting like a headphone jack is a bonus it makes it less water-resistant haven't even used a headphone jack since I don't even know when and I'm not even rich I always buy mid-tier phones at most like more often than not whenever I need to get a new phone I need to get a new phone so I get a cheap one like $100 or so. They put in a slightly bigger haptic sensor or anyting anything whatsoever other than a headphone jack which is another hole that makes it less water resistant

So if I caught him correctly at around 4:00 the 5A is $50 cheaper than the 4A 5G. I do know they're discontinuing the 4A 4g. Well they're not going to be making them anymore. I've wanted to try a Pixel for months now, I've always only had Samsung. But I'm being a little crazy about it. I've probably watched 200 videos, always talking to people.. most likely it will be the 5A I purchase. I just wish it was a tad smaller. That's one of the best things about Google phones as well, your pocket doesn't look like you're carrying around an encyclopedia. They make tablets and smart TV'S for a reason.
