Imho pixel 7a is a good phone, but not a flagship killer or a best buy compared to others. I would like to prefer this one, but honestly A54 has better specs in camera and battery. The OS more or less is the same ( with the Samsung improvement.
Anonymous, 11 May 2023It's weird. So many hands on reviews on YouTube says that this phone is top for the price... moreMost of the youtubers are Americans who don't have other alternatives but the Galaxies and the Iphones; no BBKs no Xiaomis

I'm not sure what you mean by quad pixel and dual pixel. Dual pixel is only used in context with dual pixel autofocus where every pixel has two autofocus sensors.
Note that the main camera has a Quad Pixel sensor (similar to Dual Pixel sensor) and not a Quad Bayer sensor. It's surprising that certain smartphones can take decent high resolution photos with Quad Pixel sensors because this isn't possible with Dual Pixel sensors. Anyway, you can't expect that zoom photos or high resolution modes from a Quad Pixel sensor are as good as from a Quad Bayer sensor. They behave physically different due to the different size of the microlenses.
Mollisol, 12 May 2023Con: >Very slow charging I will only by a Google Pixel Phone when they improve charging... moreI have a google pixel 6a and I don't have any issues with its charging rate of 18w as long as the battery lasts longer, compared to something that charges at 67w (I also have a realme 9 pro plus 5G) but battery health depletes faster.
For the screen size not compact. I expected more..
Anonymous, 11 May 2023Really? So there's no Kirin 9000 or the upcoming 9100 beating snap gen 2 on antutu? it looks like you are confused between dimensity 9000 by MTK and kirin 9000 by huawei.
Kirin 9000 is dropped ... the actual P60 Pro uses SD 8+ gen 1
Tech companies pushing foldable phones to make money. My life complete without....foldable tablet makes more sense...oh well. Sure it weighs too much.
I find it hard to believe that this is much more manageable then the regular 7 when it's barely any smaller.
Seriously, half a mm narrower, 3mm shorter and a few grams lighter, smaller screen and worse screen to body ratio then the phone it replaces.
Google missed a trick here.
"and the camera doesn't automatically apply beauty filters to your face or the moon"
Ouch. With generative AI being so hot. I think they will start generating your face to make you look like a model. Instant Instagram wins.

radwind, 12 May 2023This heating issue seems to be reported way back from Pixel 4a, 5a and 5 too.They should pay BBK for proper cooling system too. Imo Google should just stick to software clearly hardware is not child's play 🧑⚖️
Anonymous, 10 May 2023charging time is a joke by today standard Better they pay BBK to have fast charging & pay the premium. I can't see myself buying a very slow charging phone 🤤 2 hours to charge a damn phone
Anonymous, 10 May 2023I wanted to know, since it heats up a lot, can I also fry an egg in it?Probably make an omelette
ashrobb, 10 May 2023So... You won't release a full review? There's no need to review Very slow charging phones.
>Very slow charging
I will only by a Google Pixel Phone when they improve charging speed. The reason why I still stick with BBK because of fast charging. Imo a phone should charge 0-80% in 30 minutes at least
It's weird. So many hands on reviews on YouTube says that this phone is top for the price and it works like a charm but here all comments are negative and I guess none has it.
