Google Pixel 4A vs Google Pixel 4 Comparison

Google Pixel 4A vs 4

Launched by Google in 2019 and 2020, these two smartphones have proven themselves as efficient and pleasant-to-use devices. They are similar in terms of functionality, but differ on a few points, including price. Here are a few key differences to help you decide between them.

Google Pixel 4: the compact premium smartphone

Most manufacturers today offer very large smartphones. With the Google Pixel 4, Google has gone against the grain, offering a rather compact premium model. It measures 147.1 × 68.8 × 8.2 mm. Its competitor, the Google Pixel 4A, also follows this trend with a size of 144 × 69.4 × 8.2 mm. The size of their screen is thus unsurprisingly similar. The Pixel 4 has a 5.7-inch screen and the Pixel 4A has a 5.81-inch screen, both using OLED technology. When it comes to photography, the Pixel 4 takes the lead. Unlike the Google Pixel 4A, it has a 16MP optical zoom lens. It performs well in all situations, including at night.

Google Pixel 4A: more battery life, less power

Anyway you put it, the Pixel 4A is less powerful than the Pixel 4. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, compared to the Snapdragon 855 in the Pixel 4. However, this slight decrease in processing power is made up for with a huge gain in battery life. It has a 3,120mAh battery, exceeding the 2,800mAh battery of the PiXel 4. It is also cheaper, commonly by several hundred pounds.

Very similar, these two smartphones are perfect for normal use. If you are looking for the best price or long battery life, the Pixel 4A is the most suitable. If you're looking for photos or power, the Pixel 4 is the best choice.
