Google Pixel 4a 5G review: unboxing and first impression

A good month ago, Google placed next to the Pixel 5 also the somewhat cheaper Google Pixel 4a 5G. Contrary to what the name suggests, this is not just one Pixel 4a with 5G, but a better smartphone in many respects.

Whether the Pixel 4a 5G is really worth it, or whether you shouldn't go for a Pixel 4a or Pixel 5, I'll clarify in a few weeks in a detailed review. In this article, I'll first unpack the smartphone and get a first impression.

Google Pixel 4a 5G unboxing

From the outside, the box looks quite valuable, pretty and smaller than almost all other packaging from the competitors. On the front is the smartphone and the Prosee product name. After removing the cover, the smartphone, which is still in a film to protect it from scratches, comes towards you. Underneath is the usual paperwork and a SIM needle for the dual SIM slot. So that you can recharge your Pixel 4a 5G relatively quickly, Google supplies an 18W power supply and the corresponding USB-C cable. Other smartphones in this price range offer significantly faster adapters, but I think that's still okay. In addition, an adapter from USB-C to USB-A is included for file transfer during the first setup. Unfortunately, there is no cover or protective film here, which I think is a shame for the price.

First impression of the Google Pixel 4a 5G

I've been testing the Pixel 4a 5G for a week now and here are my first impressions.

So far, the Google Pixel 4a 5G has definitely convinced me. The design, the performance, which surprised me extremely positively despite the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, the battery life and, above all, the cameras, really appealed to me after a week. The Google phone definitely doesn't have to hide from the other competitors in this price range.

For the price of 486 euros, I would have expected a little more from the display overall, which is not only due to the lack of 90 Hertz, but also to the viewing angle stability and the colors. But I'll have to take a closer look at all of this over the next few days and compare it with other smartphones.

I will take a closer look at the Google Pixel 4a 5G in the next few days and then a detailed review will follow here very soon TechnikNews.
