Back in August, unveiled the () 4A, an affordable $349 (£349, AU$599) phone with an excellent . Fast-forward to October and the company launched its main flagship, the Pixel 5, and a version of the Pixel 4A, aptly called the Pixel 4A 5G. This phone not only connects to the next-gen network; it also has a second, ultrawide camera, a bigger display and battery and a slightly more powerful processor than the 4A. Naturally, the extra hardware goodies mean the phone costs more, at $499 (£499, AU$799).

But the price bump is worth it, especially if 5G is available in your area or you’re preparing for its arrival. The Pixel 4A 5G’s solid battery life, fantastic dual rear cameras, reliable performance and robust software support from Google also make it a worthy choice among other 5G phones, like the Motorola One 5G, which will receive only one major OS update. Because of these features and its competitive price, it’s one of our favorite of the year, and it has earned CNET’s Editor’s Choice.


Google Pixel 4A 5G


  • 5G-enabled
  • Affordable price
  • Great battery life so far
  • Headphone jack

Don’t Like

  • No wireless charging

And while it’s easy to be tempted by the $699 (£599, AU$999) Pixel 5, I’d still lean toward the Pixel 4A 5G. True, Google’s marquee handset does have attractive features like a 90Hz display, wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. But outside of those differences (plus a few more that I’ll describe below), the two Pixel phones share the same cameras, processor and general look and feel. If you’re looking to save money, the Pixel 5 isn’t quite worth that extra $200.

Because of the similarities between the Pixel 4A 5G and the Pixel 5, be sure to check out CNET’s for more details on both phones’ cameras and Android 11 software. Otherwise, read on to know about the Pixel 4A’s key spec differences, design and performance.
