Google launched the Pixel 7a smartphone in India with notable improvements in cameras, chipset, display, and battery.
Performance for day-to-day tasks on the Pixel 7a is seamless, thanks to good software optimization, but it falls short in raw performance for gaming or resource-intense tasks
The charging speed of the Pixel 7a is slow compared to competing phones, with only 18W fast charging support.
The Pixel 7a features a 6.1-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, offering good visuals and vibrant colors.
The phone offers only a 128GB storage option, which may not be sufficient for heavy users who engage in gaming, photography, and video recording.
The Pixel 7a excels in photography with its upgraded 64MP primary sensor, impressive stills, and Google's computational algorithms enhancing the final shots.
The phone has a bloatware-free UI, running on Android 13, and guarantees major Android upgrades in the future.
The battery life of the Pixel 7a is decent, lasting about six hours on a full charge, and it also supports wireless charging for the first time.
The screen calibration and HDR10 playback support on OTT platforms like Netflix provide a premium experience while using the Pixel 7a.
