Google has just announced the Pixel 7a, a lighter version of the Pixel 7 and successor to the Pixel 6a. It includes a lot of new features, but also suffers a price increase. Let's find out together what this new smartphone has to offer.
Design and handling
The Pixel 7a is a compact smartphone with a 6.1-inch screen. Its small size makes it very pleasant to handle and use with one hand. However, its wide bezels can be surprising, especially for a phone in this price range. Despite this, its design is well finished and is similar to that of the Pixel 7, with a plastic back and an aluminum photo block.
Screen and performance
One of the big new features of the Pixel 7a is its 90 Hz screen, which offers a smoother and more responsive browsing experience. That's a significant improvement over the Pixel 6a's 60Hz display. In terms of performance, the Pixel 7a is equipped with the same processor as the Pixel 7, ensuring a fast and smooth user experience.
The Pixel 7a is equipped with a 50-megapixel main sensor and an ultra-wide sensor. The first tests show that the quality of the photos is very good, with lots of detail and good color management. The Pixel 7a also includes Super Res Zoom, which allows you to zoom up to 8x with surprising image quality for digital zoom.
The Pixel 7a features wireless charging at 7.5 watts and benefits from regular updates from Google, providing an improved user experience. However, it is important to note that the price of the Pixel 7a has increased by 50 euros compared to the Pixel 6a, passing the psychological mark of 500 euros.
Despite the price hike, the Pixel 7a offers good value for money. It offers a smooth user experience, good photo quality and a compact and pleasant design. However, it's important to note that the Pixel 7, while slightly more expensive, offers superior features, including a glass back, faster wireless charging, and IP68 certification.
