Google's Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL have been on the market for just a short while, and both are making an impression in the smartphone market. The Pixel 3a family might not be as powerful as their Pixel 3 counterparts, but they deliver incredible camera performance, "good enough" everyday performance and value pricing that is hard to ignore.
That value pricing for the Pixel 3a is part of the reason why Amazon is showing the Pixel 3a taking the top sales position for unlocked smartphones. Google priced the Pixel 3a at just $399, while the larger Pixel 3a XL can be had for $479.
Although the Pixel 3a is relatively inexpensive compared to other Android flagships -- including the Pixel 3 -- it's still priced much higher than the typical lot of unlocked phones that Amazon sells. The second-place phone is the Samsung Galaxy A10 priced at just $138.99. Third place goes to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 priced at $189.96. Scanning through the top sellers list, the majority of the phones are priced between $150 and $300.
So, either the Pixel 3a is simply enjoying some early sales success due to it being the latest shiny bobble on the market, or customers are willing to pay a little bit more to get a great all-around unlocked smartphone from Google that will have access to major Android updates for the foreseeable future.
The Pixel 3a is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It features a 5.7-inch FHD+ display.,12MP primary camera and an 8MP selfie camera. Power comes from a 3000 mAh battery, and the phone is available in Just Black, Clearly White, and Purple-ish.
