Google Pixel 7a Price, Offers, And Specifications

This latest phone has the potential to polarize the internet, similar to the launch of the Pixel 6a last year. Despite its hefty price tag, the Pixel 6a was criticized for lacking various features such as a high refresh rate display, outdated IMX 363 sensor, no wireless charging, no face unlock, and no 4K in the front camera.

However, Google has now released the Pixel 7A, which addresses all the previous issues and introduces groundbreaking innovations.

Changed Design

The Pixel 7A looks more like the Pixel 7 with an aluminum frame and camera bar, while the back remains plastic but is hard to differentiate from glass. It’s slightly thicker and heavier than the 7, but still handy with a 6.1-inch screen.

The bezels are symmetrical but thicker than typical Android phones. It’s IP67 rated and can be submerged up to 1 meter for 30 mins. It has a fast USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port, dual speakers, dual SIM support, and a reliable in-screen fingerprint scanner with good haptics.

Facelock

The Pixel 7A now supports Face Unlock, which is a basic feature in most Android phones but was missing in the Pixel 6A. It works as expected and I’m glad Google brought it back.

Wireless Charging

The Pixel 7A now has wireless charging, a feature missing in the 6A. It’s rare to find a phone that combines an IP67 rating with wireless charging, so it’s great that the Pixel 7A offers these flagship features.

Improved Display

The Pixel 7 addresses a major issue with the 6A’s display by offering a 90Hz OLED screen. While it’s not as good as the 120Hz display on most phones, it’s an improvement over 60Hz.

Scrolling and animations feel smoother, and the colors are punchy and bright with HDR support. The boosted option in colors is no longer available, and the display has a slightly warmer tone, but it’s not a significant concern.

Tensor G2

The 7 features Google’s tensor G2 chipset, upgraded from the previous version, along with 8 GB lpddr5 RAM and 128GB UFS 3.1 storage. While it doesn’t have the most powerful chipset, it still feels fast and snappy, with responsive performance and smooth gameplay.

Asphalt and Cod both ran well, with no frame drops or lag, although Gentian Impact didn’t run as smoothly as other games on this phone.

Software Experience And Updates

The 7A now features Google’s Tensor G2 chipset with 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB UFS 3.1 storage, which feels fast and responsive for everyday tasks and gaming.

The phone runs on the latest Android 13, and Google promises five years of security updates. However, there is no information about OS updates, but it is expected to receive three OS updates like Pixel 7 and 6A.

The Pixel Experience comes with unique features such as Material You theming, voice message transcription in Google Messages, and quick phrases that don’t need Hey Google. Overall, it provides a smooth and enjoyable user experience.

Camera

New Features In Camera

The Pixel 7A also comes with a range of camera features, including a new long exposure mode that wasn’t available on the 6A. This feature can be used on both the front and rear cameras and produces some impressive photos.

Additionally, the Night Sight feature has been improved and now offers an option to match colors for even better results. You can also turn this feature off if you prefer. Overall, the camera features on the 7A work very well.

New Camera Setup

The camera features on the Pixel 7A have received significant upgrades from its predecessor, the Pixel 6A. It boasts a new 64-megapixel primary camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) and a new 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera.

Even with the old sensor, the Pixel 6A was the best camera phone in the 30-40k price range, and the Pixel 7A, which is now priced under 30k, is even better. The photos taken with the 7A are stunning, with natural colors, sharp details, and excellent dynamic range. The difference in quality is noticeable, even in low light conditions where the 7A photos have better colors and lower noise.

The video quality is also impressive, with fast focusing, good dynamic range, and stability due to OIS. The front camera has also been upgraded to a 13-megapixel camera that captures sharp selfies with good exposure, and it can now shoot 4K 30 FPS videos, which is a great feature.

Battery

Regarding the battery, there has been a slight reduction of 25 mAh from the 6A, making it a 4385 mAh battery. Additionally, there is no charger included and the fast charging is not as quick as other Android devices.

In terms of battery life, there is a bug with the screen on time that causes it to get stuck at a certain number, so it is difficult to accurately gauge. However, I would rate the battery life as decent as it is capable of lasting a day, but I wouldn’t expect much more than that.

Conclusion

Moving on to other features, the Pixel 7A supports all the 5G bands in India, along with NFC and Bluetooth 5.3. As for the pricing, it is set at Rs. 43,999, which is the same as the Pixel 6A launched last year.

This pricing has divided the internet into two groups. Group one feels that it’s overpriced and not really value for money, while group two thinks that it’s a solid package for a Pixel phone. Personally, with the Pixel 6A launched last year, I was in group one, but with the Pixel 7A, I am in group two.

In my opinion, the 7A offers a more premium software experience, probably the best cameras, and a lot of flagship features that are not available on phones like the OnePlus 11R.
