Titre Original: Google Pixel 6a | Unboxing & Three Day Review
Text of the video
So last year was a massive steaming pile of doggy dump for many reasons just one of which being that google didn't actually bother to release its affordable pixel the pixel 5a here in the uk but in 2022 google is making amends the pixel 6a is hit and blighty for 399 quid boston the same tents as smart as the pixel 6 flagship but in a more compact 6.1 inch form factor but of course to reach that lower price point some sacrifices have been made but anyway enough banging on let's whip the pixel 600 out the box test out the game and chops the camera all that good stuff and for more on the latest and greatest tech please do plug subscribe and dig that notifications bell cheers so first up what do you actually get in this delightfully dinky box i'm guessing not too much and indeed it's very tidily packed that's for sure you get one pixel 6a type c to type c usb cable as usual a usb type c to type here adapter you've got a quick start guide which basically tells you how to power the phone on if you've never actually used the smartphone before and a very cute wee porky pin to actually get your sim in there and that is it no adapters you will have to actually provide your own as usual but here better for the environment hey chaps so here in all of its splendor is the google pixel 6 here and i've got to say i really missed these a series smartphones because they're so pleasingly dinky here's the pixel 6a side by side with the original pixel 6 and it may not look like a massive difference 6.1 inches versus 6.4 inches but believe me when you've got it in your mids it does make a difference to the comfort and also just one-handed use is so much easier and although i still struggle to reach up to the top ends of this phone because i've got tiny stubby fingers at least you've got that one-handed mud if you really need it so yeah 6.1 inches still more than enough to satisfy and feels great in the hand phenolfna
now google is offering the pixel 6a and a choice of three different colors you've got charcoal chalk or sage so basically black white or kind of a pukey green that i'm not entirely sold on my favorite of the trio certainly this chalk model here i just love the clean crisp finish of it and as usual just like with the original pixel six series you've got a two-tone finish it's got this gray strip up top kind of reminds me of the new kia niro ev random car reference there for you once again you've got a 3d thermoformed composite back end oh very posh so i'm expecting the pixel six here to be pretty rugged and hardy as well just like the original pixel six just a simple bit of google branding right there in the middle apart from that nice clean design and at least the camera bump isn't quite as sticky outy as with the previous pixel so hopefully it should be easier to remove any cac that gets embedded in these sharp corners meanwhile up front it is the older gorilla glass 3 and you don't get a pre-installed screen protector on there but all the same i'm hoping the pixel 6 is displayed will remain scratch free for the foreseeable i'll certainly be abusing the ruddy eck out of it for my in-depth review so stay tuned to see more on that and in better durability news the pixel 6 is also ip67 water and dust resistant quite rare at this price point there's just a handful of other phones that likes the iphone se 2022 spit spit spit but also for that sort of level of protection so on to software and unsurprisingly the pixel 6a is running google's latest freshest android 12 and it will be one of the very first smartphones to get a bit of android 13 action later in 2022 plus on top of that you've got the added bonus of at least five years of guaranteed security updates because of course it's a google branded blower it certainly helps that google doesn't spaff out dozens of new smartphones every single year therefore it can keep the older ones bang up to date much more easily so you've got all those great android 12 features including quite a few pixel exclusives like that at a glance up top and i was never really a fan of acne glands back in the day but certainly in recent times it's become a lot more useful this can display all kinds of pertinent information including any upcoming events you've got particularly handy if you're about
now and projected wait times for the rest of the day if you decide you can't be bothered you're going to do it later on and if you do find that you are stuck on hold at any point well there's gonna be a new hold for me feature on the pixel 6a as well just give that a little tap and then you can get on with your day and then when an actual human being picks up the phone will vibrate and buzz and make all kinds of a fuss uh just to alert you to the fact unfortunately these features do not seem to be active right
now as i'm unboxing this pixel 68 ahead of the official release but hopefully they'll come in soon i'll be able to include them in my in-depth review and to actually unlock the pixel 6 here you once again have a row and in display fingerprint sensor it's just your basic optical effort and of course anyone who has used a pixel 6 for a pixel 6 pro has probably grappled with the display fingerprint sensor on that thing it wasn't the most responsive and it did bulk up pretty often but thankfully touchwood after a few days of use here on the pixel 6 here this in display fingerprint sensor seems to be an improvement even when my hands are a bit moist or a bit dry it doesn't seem to struggle to actually figure out who i am but of course the big question is will it continue to not suck well stay tuned for my in-depth review for a full answer on that one for your storage you've got 128 gigs of space packed into the pixel 6a and only about 14 gigs of that is used by system files of plenty of space for your media your apps whatever else you want to cram onto this thing unfortunately that's not expandable via microsd memory cards as usual and there's space in the pixel 6a sim tray for just a single sim but you can also download an e-sim if you want to go that way that's particularly handy if you happen to be traveling that your sim isn't supported in the country you're going to you can just get a temporary sim for a few days to last year
now not exactly much shock and surprise when it comes to the pixel 6s 6.1 inch oled display it's an absolute cracker as usual got a full hd plus resolution here 2400 by 1080 and that coupled with the fact that it's quite a dinky display compared with a lot of modern smartphones means that those visuals are super sharp you've got super wide viewing angles nice sharp contrast as well those blacks are perfectly black you got full hdr support of course when you're streaming a bit of video and on the default adaptive color mode visuals are really poppy and bright and punchy as well it's just pure eye candy the fact that the selfie cam orifice isn't
now as i say my in-depth camera review of the 6a it should be going live about the same sort of time you're watching this right
now let's go check that out for an in-depth look at the optics the photo and the video quality and all that shenanigans also hoping to do a full side-by-side with the pixel 6 and the pixel 6 pro if that'll float your boat i'm going to continue to use the pixel 6 here as my full-time smartphone as well so stay tuned for an in-depth review as well but what do you guys reckon this is what i'm very intrigued to hear are you tempted by the pixel 6 here certainly that 400 pound price point it has a lot to offer i'm loving that more compact form factor and the full ip rate and water and dust resistance as well a couple of features which are hard to find at this sort of price point of course you've got that slick camera tech you've got gorgeous all the displays strong media chops and that guaranteed software support too on the flip side not so hot when it comes to gaming certainly come over some rivals likes the poko f4 gt for instance and you've got the 60 hertz display a few little areas where it doesn't quite match up to its rivals so anyway that's
Unboxing Google's Pixel 6a mid-range smartphone, packing the same main camera sensor as the 5a but the fresh Tensor chipset from the 6 and 6 Pro. This early review covers the gaming smarts, battery life and best new Pixel 6a features after a few days of using as my full-time phone. My in-depth camera verdict should be live mere minutes after this video and stay tuned for a comparison vs those flagships!
So far I'm really enjoying my time with Google's budget-friendly 2022 blower. It's one of the best compact smartphones, with a 6.1-inch OLED screen that's still stunning. You've got a water resistant IP67 design, while battery life has also been good. I've managed to make it through every day with some juice still remaining, despite quite heavy use of the Pixel 6a.
Performance is good enough for everyday shenanigans, although gamers beware. Titles like Genshin Impact really hammer this phone, with frame rates really suffering when you boost the graphics. The Pixel 6a is better suited to games such as PubG and CODM.
As for the camera, well, it seems to be dependable in most conditions as usual despite the old sensor tech. Tensor's ISP helps to produce crisp, good looking pics even in quite low light, but my full Pixel 6a camera review is what you'll want for a closer look at the photo and video quality.
So that's my thoughts on this mid-range Google mobile, but are you tempted? It'll hit the UK soon for £399.
