Earlier this month Google launched its new mid-range Pixel 3a and 3a XL that went official after lots of leaks. Google was offering impressive trade deals to get users to upgrade with up to $600 off for the trade in of a high-end iPhone on the mid-range Google offerings. Reports are now coming in that the Pixel 3a and 3a XL are both having issues that are causing the phones to shutdown for some users. Users seeing the issue are reporting that the shutdowns occur randomly during the day and night when the device isn't in use. When the devices shut down, the screen won't turn on, and the only way the devices can be used again is to do a hard reset by pressing and holding the power button for about... Read more...
Google has made a splash over the last month with the launch of the new mid-range Pixel 3a and 3a XL smartphones. The devices have up to $600 in incentives to get users to trade in iPhone and other devices to get the new smartphone. We've talked about Android Q before with its focus on privacy and a slew of other new features coming. Google is reportedly working on another new feature for Android Q that might not come to everyone. This feature is automatic car crash detection. References were found to the new feature in the Android Q Beta 3 Safety Hub app. A string in the app reads that the car crash detection function will "automatically launch an alert activity when the device detects you are...

The launch of the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL smartphones this week was no surprise. The devices had been leaked and rumored for months ahead of becoming official. The devices launched starting at $399 for the 3a and $479 for the Pixel 3a XL. Google wants to woo iPhone users to the Android side with these new smartphones, and is offering some trade-in deals on that could put some cash back in their pocket if they switch. It's hard to imagine owners of high-end devices like the iPhone XS Max moving to a mid-range device, but stranger things have happened. The trade deal for the iPhone XS Max is worth $610 if your device is in good shape. Traders with that deal could get a Pixel 3a XL... Read more...
This week, the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are the hottest talk of the internet, as they are the new mid-range smartphones from Google. With a starting price of $399 for the Pixel 3a and $479 for the Pixel 3a XL, both phones offer a nice balance of features, camera image quality, battery life... and actually include a 3.5mm headphone jack. Not surprisingly, it didn't take the folks at iFixit to take a scalpel to both the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL, and thankfully, both have modular components that are more readily accessible for replacement in case of failure. Unlike most smartphone which feature bodies made out of a combination of aluminum and glass, the new Pixel devices feature plastic... Read more...
Yesterday, Google announced its Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL mid-range smartphones which rock a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and the familiar two-tone design aesthetic (albeit with a plastic body). Best of all, the phones start at an incredibly reasonable $399 and $479 respectively, which has already been discounted by $100 thanks to a promotion running at Best Buy. For those that think that the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are just a stop-gap measure that will go by the wayside in the blink of an eye (think iPhone SE), Google is indicating that these more affordable Pixels are here to stay. Android Police was recently able to talk with members...

The ink is barely dry on the announcement for Google's brand-new Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL mid-range smartphones, but a hot deal has already presented itself. Google revealed the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL priced at $399 and $479 respectively, which is already pretty reasonable pricing for these mid-range Android Pie smartphones. However, Best Buy is currently running a promotion that gives you a free $100 gift card with the purchase of either smartphone -- even unlocked models with no strings attached to a wireless carrier. If you buy an unlocked Pixel 3a/Pixel 3a XL, you don't even have to activate the device to get your $100 gift card. However, if you do return the phone for any reason,... Read more...
After months of leaks, Google's Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL mid-range smartphone have officially been announced. As you might have guessed, there aren't any surprises given how much we've already learned about the devices so far, but we'll give a quick rundown of the all the goodies that come with each smartphone. The smallest (and cheapest) model is the Pixel 3a, which features a 5.6-inch FHD+ display with a resolution of 2220x1080. The Pixel 3a is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Google is including an 8MP selfie camera along with a single 12.2MP primary shooter on the back. To save money, Google doesn’t include the Pixel... Read more...
The annual Google I/O event is right around the corner, as in tomorrow, and Google is expected to announce a bunch of new stuff. One of those will be a beta of a new major build of Android, as is now customary at these events. But Google also has some new hardware on the horizon that we expect will be unveiled tomorrow. Here's what to expect. Android Q To start with, Android Q Beta 3 is bound for a launch at Google I/O 2019. Google rolled out the first beta for its Pixel phones in March, followed by a second beta in April. Those introduced things like better privacy controls, pop-up setting menus (similar to 3D Touch on iOS), and so forth. It's not clear what exactly the third beta of Android... Read more...
There have been a lot of rumors flying around about the upcoming mid-range smartphones from Google: the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. The cheaper devices are coming just in time for Google as its high-end Pixel devices have hit a sales wall. Best Buy locations are known for putting some devices out on shelves early giving a look at smartphones and other things we aren't supposed to see yet. The latest error comes from a Best Buy location in Springfield, Ohio. Someone at the store put three Google Pixel 3a XL smartphones into a cabinet early. The boxes show a smartphone design that looks just as we have seen in leaks in the past. Not much in the way of data on the smartphones can be gleaned from the... Read more...
At this point, there isn't much that we don't already know about the incoming Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL smartphones from Google. Rather than trying to push another flagship-level device at consumers, Google is solidly aiming at the mid-range market with the incoming Pixel 3a family. Up until now, one of the last unknowns about the phones was their starting price. However, today that information is finally coming to light thanks to rumored information from the This is Tech Today YouTube channel. According to the channel's M. Brandon Lee, the Pixel 3a will start at $399, while the Pixel 3a XL will be just $80 more at $479. For comparison's sake, the flagship Pixel 3... Read more...
If you’ve been following the headlines in the smartphone world, then you know that Google is nearing the release of its Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL smartphones. Unlike the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which are flagship Android phones, the Pixel 3a family uses more meager specs backed up by a [hopefully] much lower price tag. Some have questioned why Google would even bother with a cheaper family of Pixel phones given that 1) customers could just buy an older Pixel 2 with decent hardware specs, or 2) take advantage of the many promotional offers that have been available for the Pixel 3 since its release. However, Google explained on an earnings call this week that sales of its... Read more...
It was only a couple of weeks ago when Google accidentally (maybe) confirmed plans to launch new Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL handsets, as it plastered references to the phones in its online store. Those references have since been removed, but the cat is out of bag. As we get closer to launch, a fresh leak gives us a first real glimpse of the upcoming handsets. To be clear, there have been prior leaks, including one by a case maker. However, none of them have given a clean look at what the final products are likely to end up being. What we have here, though, are what appear to be official press renders of both the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, as obtained by Android Headlines. One of the things we notice... Read more...
We know that Google is working on new smartphones for the Pixel family; after all, the company leaked specs on the Pixel 3a and 3a XL on its website. Details of those devices have also leaked that show the mid-range smartphones will cost around $500 with the Pixel 3a XL naturally being the more expensive version. Google is now teasing the devices and has confirmed the unveil date for the smartphones. Google has a landing page celebrating Avengers: End Game and using footage from the film to tease the upcoming smartphones. The landing page for the video (which can be seen below) says "On May 7, something big is coming to the Pixel universe." May 7 is the same day that the Google I/O 2019... Read more...
