Google launched (a little late) its recent proposal to make a place in the mid-range, and although it comes with features that are not entirely surprising, it is true that photography leaves a good taste in the mouth. But what would be the competition facing the Google Pixel 4a , which has a cost of $ 350 dollars?
The phone – despite not considering glass or aluminum finishes – feels good in the hands, with a 5.8-inch screen (Gorilla Glass 3), polycarbonate finish and fingerprint sensor on the back.
Its OLED display has Full HD + resolution (1,080 x 2,340 pixels) and HDR compatibility, however, Google does not say anything about its refresh rate. Other of its specifications are: Android 10, Snapdragon 730 processor, 6 GB RAM, 128 GB storage and 3,140 mAh battery (compatible with 18-watt fast charge). In other words, a mid-range in the entire length of the word.
Your main camera comes with a single 12.2-megapixel lens, but it seems to be enough to deliver quality still images; its front optics, in a circular notch in the upper left corner, is 8 megapixels. As for audio, Google put stereo sound.
