Pixel 8a: Is it worth buying?

Is the Pixel 8a worth buying?

The Google Pixel line is known for its incredible cameras and clean software experience, but sometimes those flagship features come with a flagship price tag. That's where the Pixel 8a comes in.



The Pixel 8a is the latest mid-range offering from Google, packing many of the same features as its more expensive siblings at a more wallet-friendly price of $849 AUD. Here's what you can expect:

Stunning Photos with Google AI

The Pixel 8a boasts a powerful dual rear camera system with a 64-megapixel main lens and a 13-megapixel ultrawide lens. But the real magic comes from Google's Tensor G3 chip. This powerful processor uses AI to enhance your photos in a variety of ways.

  • Best Take: Capture the perfect group shot, even if someone blinked or looked away. Best Take automatically chooses the frame where everyone looks their best.
  • Magic Eraser: Easily remove unwanted objects from your photos with a simple tap.
  • Night Sight: Capture clear and bright photos even in low-light conditions.


More than Just Cameras…

The Pixel 8a isn't just a camera phone. Here are some other highlights:

  • A bright and beautiful display: The 6.1-inch display features a smooth 2400 x 1080 resolution and reaches a peak brightness of 2,000 nits, making it perfect for watching videos or browsing the web outdoors.
  • All-day battery life: The Pixel 8a boasts a long-lasting battery that can keep you going from morning to night.
  • Circle to Search: Simply draw a circle around an image or text and Google AI finds it fast, directly from the app you’re in.
  • Colours: Blue (Bay), White (Porcelain), Black (Obsidian).


Is the Pixel 8a for you?

If you're looking for a phone with a fantastic camera, a clean software experience, and a price that won't break the bank, then the Pixel 8a is a great option. It offers many of the same features as Google's flagship Pixel 8 phones at a more affordable price.
