vs

Moving from the Pixel 3 XL to the Pixel 4a 5G will bring some similarities and some improvements. As a starting point, both phones are roughly the same size. The Pixel 4a 5G has a 6.2-inch display and sits 6.1 (H) by 2.9 (W). In comparison, the Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3-inch display and measurements of 6.2 (H) by 3.0 (W). The Pixel 4a 5G ditches the top-center notch in favor of slimmer bezels all around, which are made possible (in part) due to the hole-punch style camera on the front. The front camera is an 8MP with an f/2.0 aperture and 83-degree field of view, and the rear camera setup includes a 12.2MP (f/1.7) dual-pixel and 16MP (f/2.2) ultrawide camera.
