Pixel 3A vs. Pixel 3 specs: Cameras, processor, battery and more compared – CNET

Published

on

The Pixel 3A and 3A XL weren’t necessarily updates to the existing Pixel 3. Rather the two phones were an expansion Google made to appeal to a wider audience with more affordable handsets (just like the new Pixel 4A and recently discontinued Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL). When compared to the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, the 3A and 3A XL cost hundreds less at launch, though the price gap has since narrowed — right now you can actually find the Pixel 3 for less than the 3A.

The Pixel 3 still has one of the best cameras when it comes to photos, and what’s wonderful is the Pixel 3A and 3A XL get the same camera. Sacrifices were made to get the new phones to hit a low price, but not many. The bodies aren’t as sleek. There’s no water resistance or wireless charging, though there is a headphone jack.

The Pixel 3A has a slightly larger display inside a slightly larger body than the Pixel 3 — we’re talking millimeters. The 3A has a 5.6-inch OLED display while the larger 3A XL has a 6-inch OLED display. Good news is there isn’t a notch!

The newer Pixel phones don’t get the Pixel 3’s Snapdragon 845 processor. Instead they have a Snapdragon 670 processor, which we found less powerful in our benchmark tests.

Google Pixel 3

We called it the best Android phone of 2018

Sarah Tew/CNET

The Pixel 3 really blew us away with its exceptional cameras in 2018. While we were less thrilled about the lack of a headphone jack, the camera more than makes up for it (not to mention the AI-powered call screening). Even after using the phone for six months, we remained impressed.

Google Pixel 3A

Same cameras, plus a headphone jack

While we had qualms about the Pixel 3A’s internal storage and lack of wireless charging, getting the same camera setup as the Pixel 3 is reason enough to consider Google’s pared down version. Plus, it comes with a headphone jack.
