    I gave it three stars for value for money because as we know phones tend to lower in price considerably from one month to another…

    I purchased this 6A to replace my beloved 2019 Motorola edge. I realized that waterfall screen phones may seem kind of a smirky passe gimmick these days…
    But if you have never held the ORIGINAL 2019 Motorola edge in hand you can’t truly appreciate how beautiful that phone really is… It is nearly 90% screen with no side bezels a tiny forehead and a minuscule’s chin.

    Specs wise, even though this 6A appears to be superior (barely)…in real world performance, this is not exactly the case…
    The moto edge’s 765g is a surprisingly competent mid-range chip that rarely disappoints and often impresses.
    If I were to compare it with Google’s own Tensor chip you’d be hard pressed to find any real world differences… In fact, as it’s well known, Google’s chip tends to run warmer and don’t seem to be as power efficient…

    I have to be really honest in a direct spec wise comparison even though Google’s pixel’s specs are superior DO to being latest technology they don’t seem to perform any better than the previous tech of other manufacturers.

    I have experienced the checklist of issues others have had with Google’s pixel 6 phones.

    If I were to pick a particularly annoying one it’s the infuriating poor fingerprint sensor, which is completely useless in full daylight and has trouble recognizing fingerprints from different angles… If I were to pick a percentage I would say that it fails 60% of the time… And as you can imagine that is abysmal compared to literally $150 phones that have more competent fingerprint readers.

    But it goes beyond that. I eventually decided to leave my beloved motto edge because I felt that it’s current specs were causing me app misbehavior. (As well as it having a slightly cracked screen)
    But in truth, it seems that these bugs and mishaps were really related more to the apps themselves than they were to the phone.
    As this phone seems to suffer the same or similar hiccups…
    Even more bizarre is that most of these hiccups appear to be suffered by Google’s own apps…

    It would take a book for me to describe all my dissatisfactions with the performance of this phone. So much so that I don’t really see it so much as an upgrade as merely a replacement for a phone that I loved that was unfortunately outdated by time and made no sense to repurchase even though it was available at a superior price to this one.

    Coming from a Moto G Power from 2020 – got water damaged, so I was really looking for a budget-friendly phone with waterproof rating and a good camera for some simple photography. Overall, 9.5/10 – extremely solid phone coming from something like a moto g power.

    CAMERA 10/10
    10/10, firstly has google camera – an instant boost in rating. While I cant really super-fine tune the pro/manual settings, the camera is good enough where I don’t really have to. All the major features are there – brightness/exposure, white balance, timed shots, etc. The camera modes included are actually amazing though – night mode was truly a shock to see in action (yes its that good). Google lens is on most modern androids now, and it works fine. the zoom is 5x max, 2x recommended, and it performs decent. the .7 mode is pretty damn good – especially for video. the stabilization on video is really sick and works surprisingly well. the phone’s low spec camera is more then made up for in google’s impressive post-processing capabilities. only thing wrong with the camera is the photo sphere – a feature I was really hyped to try. Dont get me wrong – it works – but not really that well, even with a tripod. Cant expect too much though for a $350 phone.

    PERFORMANCE – 9.5/10
    Absolutley flawless – no sudden restarts, no jitteriness, and any game I threw at it it performed well in. That’s expected, though, as you’re supposed to be getting the processor from google’s pixel 6 and 6 pro. overheating isn’t a problem, the phone has never alerted me yet, but it can get decently warm. without a case its noticeable and a bit unpleasant, nothing too bad though. with a case its barely noticeable. ill throw voice assistant in here too; nothing special with it – same quality as any other phone (this one at least seems to pick up me saying “hey google” though). The fingerprint sensor is shockingly good for an under-the-screen one (first imte I’ve had one like that). Yeah, it screws up sometimes, but nothing that my old phone wouldn’t have screwed up for either – oily skin, dust, smudges, etc.

    EXTERIOR & MISC – 9.9/10
    “glass” back is actually really well made, as I’m sure you’ve heard already. the plastic does really feel like glass, but has all the benefits of using plastic. the screen is gorilla glass 3, and has been fine with my one drop of it of like 3 feet. the waterproof rating I’ve been leery to test what with my old phone, but from YT reviewers it seems perfectly reasonable for its rating. as far as the internal storage goes, its not a problem for me – but might be for most people. I already back up all my photo/video to google photos (and it is nice to have auto deletion of backed up items on pixel phones), but if I didn’t i’d already be out of room, especially with the awesome camera. So be warned. If you’re not a gigabyte-guzzler, though, you should be fie.

    OVERALL – 9.5/10

    I picked two of these up for my parents, their “old” phones started acting up. I’ve had great luck with my Pixel 4a, so i decided to stick to that lineage and go with these 6as,

    Hardware is a quantum leap over their old phones, the under-screen fingerprint reader seems to work quite well, and the sim tray is easy to remove and install, even if you may need to pop the sim removal tool under an edge of the slide in order to get the tray out.

    So far it’s great, but there’s one big problem: No wall charger in the box anymore. It comes with the USB-C cable, and the adapter to transfer from your old phone to the new one, but if you’re upgrading from Micro-USB, Lightning, or older styles, you’re gonna have to pick up USB-A to USB-C adapters to re-use chargers with USB ports on them, or spend extra on a USB-C charger. Paying a couple of hundred dollars for a phone you cant charge out of the box is an added annoyance that i could really do without.

    If you’re upgrading from a USB-C phone, or have chargers already from newer laptops/tablets, the rest of the Pixel 6a is outstanding, especially the camera. But if you’re coming from something older, go and pick up a USB-C charger as well, along with a case.
