Pixel 3a vs Pixel 4a


Swappasaurus says...

Choosing to upgrade from the Pixel 3a to the Pixel 4a means moving up one generation. You would see some modest improvements in terms of specs and performance, but you would be getting a phone with slimmer front bezels, which makes the phone look a bit nicer. Due to the slimmer bezels, the Pixel 4a also makes use of the hole-punch style front-facing camera. The display on the Pixel 4a is 5.8-inches and features a resolution of 2340 x 1080, HDR support, and a Gorilla Glass 3 glass cover. The Pixel 4a specs include a Snapdragon 730G processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and in comparison, the Pixel 3a has a Snapdragon 670 with Octa-Core processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage space. The remaining specs for the Pixel 4a include an 8MP (f/2.0) fixed focus camera on the front and a 12.2MP dual-pixel (f/1.7) camera on the rear.
