Should you still buy the Google Pixel 4a in 2021? A VERY long term Review!

Support the channel ►►

I’ve been wanting to try a Google Pixel since 2016, as I felt it was the Android answer to Apple’s iPhone line, however, I only got round to it this year. Back in August 2020 when the Pixel 4a was released, it was an immediate success due the the features it provided for the money, but almost a year later in 2021, should you still buy the Google Pixel 4a? Or should you look elsewhere?

  1. I have nothing good to say about any android cell phone. Why? Who wants to pay a lot of money for a cell phone whose operating system is going to be obsolete in no more than 3 years? Not I! Imagine buying a new computer with an OS the will become obsolete in 3 or fewer years. That's obscene! Apple's OS lasts longer, but there is so much to dislike about Apple in general that I don't even consider their cell phones as an option.

  2. Have had mine for about 3 or 4 months and while I love almost everything about it, I hate the battery life and I think the sound quality is rubbish and not nearly as loud as it should be.

  3. Had an iPhone 12 and bought a Pixel 4a, for pure Android use. Sold the iPhone. Will be upgrading to the Pixel 6 as soon as pre-orders hit. The 4a is a great phone for the price!

  4. I have the Pixel 4a 5G. (USA) and love the phone. Previous phone was a Samsung Note 5. The Pixel is so much better. I love the ability to take pictures of the night sky as well and the built in photo editing. When I switched phones in January I realized I could do without many apps that I had to download on the old phone. The price is right and it works beautifully. Thanks for the great review!

  5. This Fone is worth the penny. Worth a million fones out in market till date. From a simple design to a brilliant performance.. This device just cant be ignored.

  6. I've had all the flagships and switched from my iPhone 11 to the Pixel 4a, barely blue. It's a wonderful phone I took on holiday it was simple to use, fast, brilliant camera, I use a clear case, and kept me well connected. The barely blue is not plastics it's a matte. The battery easily lasted all day. Love!

  7. Watching on my Nord, because the single colour choice of the 4a plus the delays in UK launch made me purchase the OnePlus Nord.
    Both phones are good, the 4a now £319 on Amazon, but for a tenner more the Nord is also available new on Amazon.
    Pixel plus points are the camera, updates, stereo speakers and headphone jack.
    The Nord loses the stereo speakers and headphone jack but adds 5g, bigger brighter screen, 90hz refresh rate, near stock experience, better battery life, decent camera (main) and solid build quality with premium looks.

  8. I have a pixel 4a. Great phone! I used iphones for years and switched to the pixel 2 a few years back. Pixel 2 was amazing! Upgraded to the 4a and it's even better than the pixel 2

  9. I was already leaning towards making this purchase as I think the pixel 6 in the fall will be very expensive…
    I want to say that you did an excellent 👌 analysis and pro/cons mentioned. I love an all things considered perspective and you did quite well while being truly enthusiastic about this phone. I am concerned about only two years of support but who knows… Maybe they will do another update? Probably worth the money 🤑💰 and you have help me and my wife decide to make this investment. Cheers 🥂

  10. Totally love your vids sir! Is it possible for you to take sample pics of toy figures id you have one? I am a collector myself and I am only relying on my phone so watching your phone reviews will help me what to buy next time. 🙌🏻🙌🏻
