Google just rolled out the budget edition of its Pixel 3 XL smart phone, the 3a XL.
Leaving her iPhone behind, Arie Judner of UrAvgConsumer uses the Pixel 3a XL for the day to see how she navigates with a bigger phone with lesser bells and whistles.
Testing everything from the ease of answering emails to battery life on the Android, Arie loves the camera features, but notices the degradation of pixels for video and gaming. The 3a XL processes slower than its costlier sister-phone, but it has a long battery life.
While she prefers smaller phones that type faster, and notices that the budget version has a little more weight, she appreciates that you do not have to sacrifice the features that you love to enjoy a lesser ($400) price tag.
