The Google Pixel 5a delivers the same experience as the Pixel 5 or Pixel 4a 5G, but for only $449. It’s also got the biggest battery ever in a Pixel, and it’s the first A-series Pixel to sport water resistance. The phone’s big OLED display, two rear cameras, and decent amount of power are great for the price.

The Google Pixel 5a is a revelation in the most boring sense of the word. After the incredibly good Pixel 4a last year, some of us were left wondering how the Mountain View-based company could one up itself. While we loved the Pixel 4a — with it regularly appearing in many of our best phone lists — it had some flaws.
