The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are now official, priced starting at $399. We know the specs and what they feature. We also know that they are available starting today basically everywhere. You can literally go into a Best Buy or other retailer and pick one up.
The question is, will you be buying one?
At sub-$500, they are quite tempting. Google says we can expect the same high-end photo-taking experience as we get on the more expensive Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, as well as other premium features like stereo speakers and, oh yeah, a headphone jack!
If you’re curious what makes these phones cheaper than the other Pixel 3 models, it’s the usage of plastic for the hardware in place of metal, plus the addition of the Snapdragon 670 processor instead of anything from the Snapdragon 800 series. From what we’ve heard and seen so far, performance appears to be pretty solid.
So, are you going to pick one up? If so, what’s drawing you to it? If not, how come? Don’t have a need for one or is there something in particular you don’t like?
