Google’s latest mid-range smartphone, the Pixel 6a has earned the PCMag Editors’ Choice seal of approval thanks to its solid performance, incredible battery life and distinctive design. Powered by the manufacturer’s Tensor processor, the phone comes with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a 4,410mAh battery that lasts around 29 hours.
What the 6-inch handset lacks in microSD slot and 3.5mm headphone jack, it makes up for with a vibrant OLED display and compact cameras. A punch-hole selfie shooter sits on the front display, behind a slab of Corning Gorilla Glass 3, while a 12.2MP dual-pixel rear camera and ultra-wide-angle sensor are housed in a unique horizontal line on the back.
Users can count on an IP67 rating, making the device completely dustproof and able to withstand temporary submersion in water at depths of up to 3.3 feet for 30 minutes. Instead of a face unlock option, the phone has an under-display fingerprint scanner, as well as a pair of speakers and a USB-C port on the bottom edge.
