If it is a smartphone, you would expect Samsung or one of the Chinese brands to be topping the sales charts. The last model in your mind might be the Google Pixel and or the Google Pixel 3a, the budget segment offering from Google. That is the reality though, with this device appearing in the list of bestselling unlocked smartphones sold on the Amazon platform. It’s actually topping the list, which must be pleasing to the ears as far as Google is concerned.
For the record, there two variants of the model, the Google Pixel 3a and the Google Pixel 3a XL. It is difficult to fathom if both the devices are bestsellers or just one of them; that may be immaterial as well. What’s more interesting is that the Amazon site is carrying reviews posted by buyers who had purchased the particular device and a majority of them had something good to say about the phone. There have been independent reviews of the Google Pixel devices in general and most have praised the camera and photography capabilities of the phones. The comments posted by the real customers are only endorsing those reviews. The other two areas the users were happy with are the battery and the price point they were able to pick the phones at.
In terms of the absolute numbers of the Google Pixel 3a and the Google Pixel 3a XL sold on the Amazon site, the figures are not available. It can, however, be imagined to be high since Amazon is one of the platforms that sells in huge quantities. Google has to take this message and put in better efforts in the devices that the company intends to release, going ahead.
The Google Pixel 3a XL comes with a 6-inch OLED display, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. There is one 12 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front sensor and a 3,700 mAh battery.
The Google Pixel 3a, on the other hand, sports a 5.6 inch OLED display. The processor is the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC and the RAM and storage too are the same 4 GB and 64 GB respectively. The battery is smaller at 3,000 mAh.
In terms of the prices, the Google Pixel 3a XL retails at $479 while the 3a is sold at $399.The value for the money proposition cannot be overlooked. It is worth every cent being paid for.
