[PIXEL 4A CAMERA TEST WEEKEND]
I used to really like smartphones with complicated cameras labeled "professional grade," because with all their features, they urged me to rise to the occasion and become a photographer that was worthy of them. But ever since 2016, I've started to value the opposite: phone cameras so consistently reliable that I can just spray and pray, and more often than not it's going to innately understand the shot I wanted and produce it.
The phone that led to that sea change … was the first-generation Google Pixel launched four years ago, and since that time a Pixel of some form has always populated one of my Peak Design pockets. As someone who spends so much of his time capturing content, the Pixel camera is just too good not to own.
Yet despite its picture-taking prowess and the other benefits I’ll touch on, the Pixel has never sold well - in part because its misses are big enough to counteract its hits. The Pixel 4 had atrocious battery life for a mainstream smartphone, and its launch price started at $799.
Well, *this* phone packs solid battery life for its size, it includes the most important features that make a Pixel a Pixel … and it only costs $350. I’m Michael Fisher; join me for a weekend with the Google Pixel 4a in MrMobile's "Real Weekend Test!"
