Google Pixel 5a in for review

Google unexpectedly released the Pixel 5a this Tuesday morning and sent out units to reviewers for early testing. Even though Google has been slowly turning up the hype dial in anticipation of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, the wallet-friendlier Pixel 5a was due any day now.

The Pixel 5a is very close in appearance to the Pixel 4a 5G that launched secondary to the Pixel 5 last year and even on paper, the cold hard truth is that this phone is basically the same. The most significant difference is the 22% higher battery capacity on the Pixel 5a.
