The 4.2-star-rated Google Pixel 6a features the same Tensor chip found in the Pixel 6. The Pixel 6a has a 6-inch OLED screen, IP67 protection against dust and water and 24-hour battery life.

There are a few downsides to the Pixel 6a to note. Because it’s a budget phone, the Google Pixel 6a is not made of premium materials like the Google Pixel 6. (The Pixel 6a features thermoplastic construction and a more fragile Gorilla Glass 3 screen.) You’ll also be sacrificing camera quality with the Pixel 6a — its 12.2MP main camera pales in comparison to the 50MP camera on the Pixel 6.

The Pixel 6a is a great budget phone, but why not pay nearly $200 less for a Pixel 6 and get a better device?
