I'm tempted to get the Pixel 3a XL and give my wife my iPhone 8 Plus...but the $650 entry price is just shy of what I'd have to pay to get a new iPhone XS Max on a 2 year plan, which makes it a hard pill to swallow.
It seems a good choice for most people. You don't really need a SD845 for normal things, it just chews up battery. Camera performance seems equivalent from what I've read and screen quality is about on-par too.
If I didn't buy the Pixel 3 at launch, stupidly since there was so many sales shortly after, I would likely grab the 3A.
It's probable the best Android experience for what you pay at the moment.
If my Pixel XL craps out anytime before xmas this year, I will be getting a 3a XL.
That CPU is fast enough, battery will likely last longer than on the 3 XL, while the camera is pretty much the same.
pretty much too pricey for my liking, not enough bang for the buck I have also heard of random reboots on the bigger model never really been a fan of Google-branded products. not that there bad really just not for me. I try to never spend more than 500 for a device that pretty much has a 2-year shelf life. all IMHO
FYI I am rocking a Huawei p10 lite and love it cost me just over 300 really like Huawei and Xiaomi models in the last few years for price and performance
