Dom unboxes the latest Google Pixel phone, the Pixel 4a. The race to be mid-range King has never been more keenly contested with OnePlus, Samsung and now Google all having compelling mid-range devices. The Google Pixel 4a looks to bring the smooth software experience and stunning imager post-processing technology that defines the Pixel line, to more pockets thanks to a cut down price.
It’s the end of 2020 Q3, and it’s time for companies to start showing their tech-wares for the holiday season. 2020, despite being a wholly disturbing year for a number of reasons, has changed the smartphone market somewhat also. Whilst flagships still remain to covet those with bulging wallets and a flair for the dramatic, the mid-range is where the marketshare war rages.
There has never been a bigger delta between high-end flagship devices (Samsung’s recently announced Galaxy Z Fold 2 for example) and mid-rangers which seek to deliver all the performance one might need, whilst keeping the cost lower.
