You can now buy the Google Pixel 3a handset outright for well under its RRP, making this the perfect time to upgrade if you’re on a budget.
Already an affordable answer to Google’s previous flagship smartphone, the Pixel 3a was originally retailing for £399. For a while now, its Currys PC World listing had an already reduced price of £329, but with this further £30 discount, you can pick up the Pixel 3a smartphone for just £299, slipping beneath the ever tempting £300 mark.
With a total £100 saving on its original RRP, this is a fantastic deal – far more affordable than the Pixel 4 and, let’s admit it, you’ll be getting a better phone too.
The Pixel 3a still sits as one of Google’s best smartphones with the 2019 flagship, the Pixel 4, somewhat falling flat on its face with a terrible battery life that couldn’t keep up with the exciting new features it boasted. On the other hand, the Pixel 3a took a lot of the great qualities that featured in the Pixel 3 and packed it into a more affordable device.
In terms of its shortcomings, the Pixel 3a forgoes glass and metal for a polycarbonate unibody and is a slightly heftier device, though marginally. It still offers the familiar two-tone finish though and we didn’t think it felt cheap.
But where does it match in ticking all your Pixel 3 boxes? Well, the Pixel 3a has clung on to the Pixel 3’s most standout feature – its camera. The rear is home to its 12MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture, as well as the AI software that helps to achieve those fantastic snaps. It also has the industry-leading Night Sight and Top Shot features for low lighting and portrait shots respectively.
Of course, it also hosts the same 3000mAh battery, as well as featuring a 3.5mm headphone jack – a feature we haven’t seen on a Pixel phone since the original.
Summarised perfectly in our review: “If you want a handset with a great camera and decent screen but aren’t so fussed about sheer speed and performance, then you’ll be very happy with the Pixel 3a.”
Now down to just £299 at Currys PC World, pick up one of the best affordable smartphones on the market for £100 less than its original RRP.
