Pixel XL vs Pixel 4a 5G

Swappasaurus says...

Opting to upgrade from the Pixel XL to the Pixel 4a 5G means skipping several generations. Typically, skipping several generations means you will see a big boost in performance and features, and that would certainly apply to this upgrade path. And, not only would you be getting a newer, better performing phone, but you would be getting support for 5G network connectivity. The Pixel 4a 5G is powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space. Key features of the Pixel 4a 5G include a 6.2-inch FHD+ OLED (2340 x 1080) display with HDR support and Corning Gorilla Glass 3, along with a 3,885 mAh battery with fast charging capabilities, and an 8MP selfie camera with an 83-degree field of view. The rear-camera setup includes a 12.2MP dual-pixel camera and a 16MP ultrawide camera with features that include Night Sight, Top Shot, Portrait Mode, and Portrait Light.
