Google is favored Pixel 6a could be best budget flagship around but we’re in the middle of a global economic storm, so if you’ve been eyeing the phone but were held back by your wallet, you can get it without paying a dime through Verizon.
Now rocking a premium chip, Google’s 2022 a-series phone isn’t exactly mid-range anymore. The Pixel 6a even shares the same design as the flagship Pixel 6 phones. The phone has a sharp 6.1-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 and a pinhole 8MP front camera, which is the same as the Pixel 6. The size makes the device comfortable for one-handed use, and it is IP67 rated against water and dust.
The Tensor chip inside is powerful enough to handle anything you throw at it. It is paired with 6GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of storage.
The Pixel 6a keeps the Pixel 5’s 12.2MP main sensor, but gets a new 12MP ultra-wide camera. The phone is unique in taking pictures in daylight and also takes great night pictures. The Tensor chip enables features like Magic Eraser and Night Sight.
The phone is armed with a 4,410mAh battery that should be able to get you through the day.
The Pixel 6a was already worth more than the price tag but $449 is no small sum so if you want to get this phone, Verizon has an irresistible deal going on. All you have to do is sign up for a new line and a qualifying 5G plan, and the device will pay for itself over the next three years. Verizon has many 5G unlimited plans that come with free benefits so you should have no problem finding one that suits your needs.
