Moving from a Pixel 4XL to a Pixel 5a 5G means moving to a newer phone, but this is an upgrade path with some improvements and some drawbacks. Getting the Pixel 5a 5G would result in 5G connectivity, an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance, and a bigger 4680 mAh battery with Extreme Battery Saver. But on the other hand, the Pixel 5a 5G doesn’t offer wireless charging, which is a feature of the Pixel 4 XL. Another drawback is the processor, which is a more powerful Snapdragon 855 on the Pixel 4 XL, and a Snapdragon 765G on the Pixel 5a 5G. Similarities include both models offering 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage space, and a 6.3” display with HDR support. However, the Pixel 4 XL also features a faster display (up to 90 Hz refresh rate) for smoother motion.
