The Pixel 4a is the latest smartphone Google introduced at the beginning of last month. Like the Pixel 3a, this 4a is a shortened version of the high-end Pixel 4, but besides that, it also adds a few impressive highlights. Join us in opening the box and experiencing this product quickly.
The product box is still the same as the previous generations: the main white tone and printing part of the back of the device on top.
The stamp on the bottom of the box outside the configuration also has a very remarkable point: The phone is made in Vietnam and only the accessory is made in China. After many impacts of the US-China trade war and COVID-19 translation, there are many reports that Google has transferred the production line to Vietnam and the Pixel 4a that we hold in our hands has confirmed this.
Complete set of products: machine, USB-C cable, charger and OTG adapter.
Pixel 4a only has a single color version Black (Just Black), designed with plastic to save costs, coated with roughness to help fingerprints during use.
The initial feel when in the hand is that the machine is quite compact, thin, the frame borders are rounded so it is comfortable to hold. Especially though made of plastic, but when using your hands to press positions on the back, Google Pixel 4a is still very solid and not hollow or rickety.
The right side of the machine with the volume keys and press a bit of white “upside down” at the power key. In the opposite position, the device doesn’t have any keys, only the SIM slot.
The Pixel 4a retains a 3.5mm headphone port, which the Pixel 4 also doesn’t have.
Pixel 4a has removed Soli radar sensor undertaking 3D face unlock, in order to reduce costs as well as “clearance” in the screen area to be more borderless.
This is also considered the first Pixel home product to have a true bezel-less screen thanks to the 8 MP F / 2.0 punch-hole selfie camera design. For those who have complained about the “facade” being encroached on too much, now will definitely be satisfied with this Pixel 4a.
Pixel 4a screen has a size of 5.8 inch, FHD, 60Hz, using an OLED panel for very good display quality.
The camera cluster on the back is still designed in the familiar square shape from the previous generation, but this time there is only a single 12 MP camera with Sony IMX363 sensor, f / 1.7 aperture, Dual Pixel focus and optical image stabilization.
The camera cluster is made very thin, almost not stealing up from the back like most smartphone products today. In the price range of nearly 10 million VND, many products have 3-4 rear cameras, but Pixel 4a is still a single camera.
However, the Pixel 4a’s sensor is similar to the Pixel 4, so it still promises to produce very good quality, along with the Google image processing algorithm is not a “fit” class, so it even helps users. more secure.
The cafe where we worked on this article was running out of power, so I could not test the camera much, just a few comparison shots of normal shooting and Night Sight shooting in the space of the shop is out of power:
Pixel 4a is equipped with Snapdragon 730G processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal memory (UFS 2.1) and 3140mAh battery. This is only a mid-range level but of course completely acceptable at the price of less than 10 million VND. We also ran a few benchmarks for our readers to check out:
Since Google does not distribute Pixel products in Vietnam, currently users who want to own can only find portable stores. Currently, Pixel 4a in Vietnam is priced 9,990,000 VND.
