Google undoubtedly pushes the best camera in a smartphone. Every year, the Pixels set the benchmark for smartphone photo quality. This year is no different, the Pixel 4a undoubtedly is the best camera for price in Indian market. But, is this the smartphone you should buy? And can you buy it?

Pixel 4a as usual is a plastic phone with a clean matte finish to it. But though its plastic, it does not look cheap when you hold it in your hand. The soft matte finish along with a solid build makes it a pretty good. This is not a big smartphone. It comes with a 5.8-inch OLED display with a hole cut on its side for front camera. And yea, the phone has a headphone jack – if you are not into dongles or wireless music.

Specifications 

The phone is powered by Snapdragon 730G coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. Not a powerful processor, true. One Plus Nord is equipped with processor which is more powerful than the one in Pixel. But at a lower price. But it’s not the specs that makes this smartphone unique. It’s the software. Google’s software magic which we would see cover in detail. The phone has a single 12 MP camera. No quad camera marketing stuffs. A single sensor, which on paper looks bad when compared with other smartphones like the One Plus Nord. But how can this single camera produce one of the best pictures? Pictures that look better than the one iPhone XR’s and iPhone SE’s can’t shoot?

Software Experience 

It all comes to image processing optimization that Google does the best than any other smartphone manufacturer in the market. Ever since Google announced its Pixel lineup, it did not have the best camera sensors in the market. It did not have a quad sensor array to produce the kind of images it takes. It does it through something called “Computational Photography”. Something that every manufacturer is trying to do, but can’t. HDR+, Smart HDR, in the names the brands use for computational photography – Google does it best.

Google is a software company, and the thing that it does the best is Software. And that’s evident from its smartphones. Even though the Pixel has a less powerful processor, Google has optimized the software in a way that the phone is smooth and fluid. This software optimization is what makes an iPhone, an iPhone. Apple’s software – hardware optimization. In Android – Google has it. 

If you are looking a person who takes a lot of photos, and is not ready to spend a ton to get a better camera smartphone? Then Pixel 4a is undoubtedly the smartphone you should buy. Period.

Pixel 4a starts at INR 31,999 and is exclusive on Flipkart. The phone released in August took two whole months before Google announced that it would come to sale on Indian market. But after its announcement, Pixel 4a has been plagued with unavailability on Flipkart.
