The Pixel 3a looks effectively identical to the regular Pixel 3 at a glance, with the same kind of two-tone backing effect and oversized bezels around the screen.

While the Pixel 3 has glass and aluminum within its flagship build, the Pixel 3a swaps to cheaper plastic to cut down on the price tag.

Both phones come in Just Black and Clearly White options, while the Pixel 3 has Not Pink as its third color and the Pixel 3a introduces the new Purple-ish choice.

Also, the Pixel 3a reinstates the 3.5mm headphone port that is missing from the Pixel 3.

The Pixel 3 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, a flagship-class Android processor (even if it is last year’s model). The Pixel 3A has a Snapdragon 670 chipset — it’s good, but it’s not the best, and the Pixel 3 will be faster to launch apps, load webpages, and process more effect-laden pictures.

The screens on the more expensive Pixels are also better, using Corning’s higher-quality Gorilla Glass instead of the Dragontrail glass on the Pixel 3A.

Camera

The camera is nearly the same for the Pixel 3A as the Pixel 3, including ’s much vaunted Night Sight feature — probably the Pixel 3A’s biggest sell, and undoubtedly the best smartphone camera on a phone in this price range.

Thankfully, kept the same hardware intact for the cheaper phone, with a single rear 12.2-megapixel shooter at f/1.8 aperture with optical image stabilization and dual-pixel autofocus. It pulls in loads of detail and delivers great contrast, and even has the great Night Sight mode from the standard Pixel 3. The Pixel 3a doesn’t have the Pixel Visual Core chip from the pricier models, but we still saw great results from the camera.

On the front, the Pixel 3a sacrifices the wide-angle “group selfie” secondary camera from the Pixel 3, and the primary fixed-focus camera is a less powerful than the one on the Pixel 3. It won’t give you mind-blowing selfies, but they’ll be just fine.

Battery

In a new smartphone, you’ll get a slightly larger battery here at 3,000mAh, compared to 2,915mAh on the Pixel 3.

Chalk that up to the slight size difference on the screen, but with a lower-end processor in the Pixel 3a, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a smidge more battery life in everyday use.

With plastic on the back instead of glass, though, the Pixel 3a sheds wireless charging. Still, it’ll do wired fast charging, and it’s incredibly swift.
