In our Google Pixel 7a review, we praise its bright, vivid 90Hz display, excellent image capturing, and Pixel-exclusive features. We rate the Pixel 5 out of 5 stars for these impressive attributes and its sub-$500 sticker price. Don't let the price fool you, the Pixel 7a is by no means a paltry device. In fact, it's a tremendous value since you're getting premium phone features at a budget price. The Pixel 7a packs a 6.1-inch (1080 x 2400) 90Hz OLED display, Google Tensor G2 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
In our lab's Geekbench 5.4 performance test, the phone scored 3,065 which beats the Pixel 7 (3,021). Although it's below the category average for smartphones, we had hiccups during real world daily use. Even when jumping in and out of apps while running a YouTube video in the background, the Pixel 7a showed no signs of slowing down. Even when our reviewer played Call of Duty: Mobile, it ran smoothly without stutter or lag.
Google engineers outfitted the Pixel 7a with a 64MP ultrawide main camera with video recording capabilities of up to 4K @ 60fps. For selfies, group photos, video calls and streaming up to 4K @ 30fps, there's a 13MP ultrawide camera on the front.
Overall, the Pixel 7 is the best phone for most people whether you're a Pixie or making the switch from Apple.
