Headline, August 09 2020/ ''' ''GOOGLE PIXEL 4A'' : SMARTPHONE '''




The exclusive ownership of every student in the world, rises to give this master, genius undertaking -Google, a standing ovation.

MOTHER GOOGLE : THE STUDENTS of the entire world generally adore and thank Google for bringing useful technology to the masses at an aggressively low price, if not free.

For those, who like that, I have happy news :

Google is getting really, really good at the price cutting, while still bringing quality, with its smartphone. The evidence? The Pixel 4A smartphone, which the company introduced just days ago.

With this latest device, Google took the best stuff from its $800 high-end Pixel 4 - specifically, an excellent camera system and a large, bright screen - and squeezed it into the body of a $350 device. That's $50 less than last year's Pixel 3A, which was Google's first budget phone.

The Pixel 4A is cheaper than high-end devices largely because it lacks the frills found in fancy phones, like wireless charging and a face scanner.

But for what you pay, it's a great value. The camera quality and bright screen are on par with many of the best smartphones out there.

Like the $300 phone SE, which Apple released in April, the Pixel 4A is a sign that you no longer need to pay through the nose for a great smartphone with a nice camera.

I tested the Pixel 4A for two weeks and compared it with the budget iPhone. Here's what I found.

WHAT THE STUDENTS CARE ABOUT : Google, which prides itself on being driven by data , surveyed its customers to find out what they wanted in a smartphone.

A large screen, long battery life, lots of storage and great camera quality were among the features that  people cared most about. For the most part, that is what you get with Pixel 4A. Let's run through its features.

The screen measured 5.81 diagonal inches and relies on OLED [organic light emitting diode] technology, a newer type of display that can be made thinner, lighter and brighter with better color accuracy and contrast than its predecessor, LCD, or liquid crystal display.

For a device in this price range, this is a very roomy, attractive display with nice colors and deep shadow detail. Its colors aren't as accurate as the screen on Apple's $999 iPhone 11 Pro, which is nearly identical in size.

The 4A has a reasonable long battery life, though your mileage may depend on what you do. On a typical workday of juggling emails, calls and texts, I had more than 30 percent battery life left in the evening.

But on weekends, when I had downtime, playing games and watching videos the 4A drained the battery in a few hours. This is typical of smartphones.

The 4A comes in only one model with a generous amount of storage: 128 gigabytes, which is enough for most casual users to store thousands of photos and lots of apps and games.

This was a wise decision by Google. Whenever I talk to people about their tech problems, running out of storage on their phone is a frequent complaint.

Pixel phones are famous for their camera system, which has software features powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The Pixel 4A has Google's most important camera features, including Portrait mode, also known as the bokeh effect, which puts a picture's main subject in sharp focus while gently blurring the background.

It also offers Night Sight, which makes photos taken in low light look as if they had been shot in normal conditions, without a flash.

The 4A lacks some features that were in the Pixel 4 - such as wireless charging and a face scanner for unlocking the phone.

That's not a dealbreaker for a device in this price range. But Google left out one big feature that does matter : water resistance.

The company left out water resistance because it put priority on other features while reducing the  price from last year's Pixel 3A, a Google spokesman said.

What's gradually getting clear is that the tech giants are now aggressively competing to offer bang -for-the-buck phones. For several years, especially after the introduction of the $999 iPhone X in 2017, it felt as if phone prices were only going up.

It's a relief that Pixel 4A is not only better than its predecessor but also much cheaper.

So why would you spend $800 for the Pixel 4 if the Pixel 4A, for less than half the price, is also very good minus some superfluous features?

The clear answer : Only gadget enthusiasts should have to pay a premium for cutting-edge tech.

The students and the world now have an option to save. Google provides the frills you want.
