Let me now discuss the Pixel 5A 5G device. This mid-range device from Google brings great features with a very good price. The device is very similar to that of the Pixel 5 device. Similar to the high-end version, it comes with a punch hole front facing camera, rear fingerprint sensor and cameras.
The screen size is 6.3″ with 85% screen to body ratio, it comes with 2400×1080 resolution and has 415ppi density, it is a great screen, and it supports AOD feature. The device runs Android 11 and it’ll get the Android 12 as soon it is available for it. Pixel devices are the best to try the stock Android experience from Google.
The OS is very simple and clear and it is a direct competitor to iOS. Samsung, for example, add a UI on top of Android. The device’s performance is very good, it performed with the Geekbench 5 platform, which is great. 🤡 Here are some samples of the cameras. ❤❤😍
The Pixel cameras are the best thing about the device. The device comes with 2 rear cameras: the first one is the 12MP Wide, and the second is 16MP Ultra Wide. The front facing camera is 8MP. On paper, the numbers are low, but the results that these cameras provide are amazing.
Google excels in photo processing and software. The results are always very beautiful, even when compared with other competitors. The cameras do a great job with the sharpness and contrast. If you want a mid-ranger with a great camera, then this Pixel 5A is a great option for you. But let me remind you that Google isn’t officially available in Africa! 🤔.
Also, the device won’t work with 5G networks. If you face a problem with the device, you’ll have to send it back to the country you bought it from. 5G bands are supported, but sometimes, they don »t fully work. The price of the device varies, but in general, it costs 580 USD 🇺🇲
The device comes with a great screen, excellent cameras and excellent battery. But the stock Android experience lacks some of the shortcuts provided by other manufacturers. It is not a flaw, though.
🙏 Google isn’t officially available in Africa and Middle east! 🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺
