The Google Pixel 5a may not be the most exciting in its design, but it is sturdy and well-built. The phone is made of aluminum and is covered in a layer of resin, which removes some of the cold feels of the metal, making it more comfortable to hold. The phone’s edges are nicely curved, providing a comfortable grip, and the power button is ridged, making it easy to find with your finger. One of the most notable new features of the Pixel 5a is its IP67 certification for water and dust protection. This means the phone can survive under 3ft of water for up to 30 minutes, a feature not commonly found in phones in this price range. Additionally, the phone comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a charger in the box, which is a welcome addition considering that many flagship phones no longer include these features.
The Pixel 5a comes with a 6.34-inch OLED screen with a 1080p resolution. The display has vibrant colors and deep blacks that are standard nowadays, and it is bright enough for outdoor use. Although it does not have a fast refresh rate like other phones in its price range, the Pixel 5a’s screen still offers a great viewing experience.
The Pixel 5a is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, a step up from its predecessor, the Pixel 4a. The phone also has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. These specs are more than enough to handle day-to-day tasks with ease. However, it is worth noting that the Pixel 5a does not have a fast refresh rate like some other phones in its price range. This means you will not get the extra smooth scrolling experience other phones offer.
The Pixel 5a’s camera system is one of its standout features. The phone comes with a 12.2MP main camera and a 16MP ultra-wide camera. There is no telephoto zoom lens, meaning you can only get up to 7X digital magnification, and the quality is far from great for zoomed-in shots. However, the phone’s camera system still manages to capture excellent photos.
The Pixel 5a’s camera system excels in dynamic range, offering far above-average performance in this class. The camera also provides rich and saturated colors, and we could not find much difference between this camera and the camera on the Pixel 5. The phone’s Night Sight feature automatically turns on when the light gets dim and gives you clean and sharp night shots, which are best in this price class.
The Pixel 5a has a 4680mAh battery, significantly improved from its predecessor. The phone has Fast charging 18W and uses USB Power Delivery 2.0
The Pixel 5a is one of the best-performing devices you can buy now on Gadgets Leo. It brings many pixel features at a much lower price, and most of all, you are guaranteed of a smartphone that can handle anything at any time.
