The Google Pixel 5a is a first-of-its-kind affordable Pixel smartphone released by the brand, which brings the Pixel experience to the mid-range segment. You get the same stylish design and robust build quality, as well as a new OLED display which is both vibrant and more responsive than the previous generation models. In order to keep the cost down, the company has decided to stick to the mid-tier Snapdragon 765G processor, which is a bit of a downgrade from the 4 XL but does offer decent performance thanks to all the software optimizations done to the stock Android OS.
