Pixel 2 vs Pixel 4a


Swappasaurus says...

Upgrading from a Pixel 2 to a Pixel 4a would put you on a three-year upgrade cycle, which means you will be getting a nice overall boost. Just as a starting point, you will be getting a nicer looking phone. The Pixel 4a has an 8MP hole-punch style camera on the front, which also means the bezels are much smaller compared to the Pixel 2. And, because of the smaller bezels, you’ll be getting a larger display without any increase in the overall size of the phone. The Pixel 4a has a 5.8-inch display with measurements of 5.7 (H) by 2.7 (W), and the Pixel 2 has a 5.0-inch display with measurements of 5.7 (H) by 2.7 (W). Other display related highlights include a resolution of 2340 x 1080, HDR support and a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 cover glass. The Pixel 4a is powered by a Snapdragon 730G processor with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a 3,140 mAh battery, and a 12.2MP dual-pixel (f/1.7) camera on the back.
