Pixel 4A (9/10, WIRED Advises) and more: It is the cheapest phone, the best cell phone, the best camera phone, and the best Android phone, time.
How much do you spend on all of this? Only $ 350. Yes. Our successor my favorite Android phone and $ 50 cheaper and better in every way. It has a great camera from the flagship Pixel 4, so you can take great pictures even at night with Google’s Night Sight feature. It runs very well, the battery lasts all day, and the 5.8-inch OLED display looks fantastic — especially since Google cut the bezels around it. It also sounds great, depending on the size of the window.
The $ 500 Pixel 4A 5G is another great option, unless you want a bigger phone. I’m a little down to work and has an extra camera, plus support for sub-6 5G (the most common type). Polycarbonate bodies make this one of the strongest of all phones. Not to mention that they have headphones on! They will have monthly security updates and Android version updates from Google for three years (most phones do not). The only downside: No water resistance, wireless charging, and no storage capacity, which is why you have to deal with 128 gigabytes of generous internal storage.

Upgrade April 2021: We still think you’d better get the Pixel 4A right now, but Google has confirmed that the Pixel 5A is coming to an end later this year. We do not know exactly when, but we do bet in August – September 2021.
