Google Pixel 6a at the best price?
Best camera of the year 2022
The Google Pixel 6a is one of the most advanced compact smartphones on the market. It sports a 6.1-inch OLED panel in Full HD+ resolution (1,080 x 2,400 pixels) but whose refresh rate does not exceed 60 Hz. Which is a first concession compared to the Pixel 6 that has a frames per second of 90 Hz. Brightness was measured at 755 cd/m² at its peak during our test and the OLED screen technology allows you to enjoy excellent contrasts and ultra-deep blacks.
As for the photo sensors, we are in the presence of two modules: a 12.2 Mpx (f/1.7) main sensor and a 12 Mpx (f/2.2) and 114° ultra-wide angle. Not attractive, and yet… In late 2022, videographer Marques Brownlee organized a blind test giant to determine which smartphone took the best photos. Between the iPhone 14 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, Google Pixel 7 Pro and Huawei Mate 50 Pro, it was the Google Pixel 6a that emerged victorious from the competition.
A success for the versatility of the Google Pixel 6a, in portrait, night or ultra-wide angle mode, it is a big yes! Image processing algorithms also do wonders for enhancing skin tones or sharpening shots. Finally, you benefit from various features like the magic eraser to “cheat” your shots.
The performance of the Google Tensor chip in the spotlight
The Google Pixel 6 range also caused a stir thanks to its Google Tensor processor, announced as the first SoC designed entirely by the Mountain View company. Actually, this chip would be a derivative of the Exynos 2100 and therefore would come from a collaboration with Samsung. However, the performance is up to what is expected of a mid-range smartphone, with enough power to navigate calmly and launch the software you want. However, he shows his limits in greedy games that can quickly turn up the heat.
There is also 6 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB of storage, which is more than enough to store apps and photos in quantity. The biggest concession to accept for this Google Pixel 6a would be at the battery level, the autonomy measured in more than 10 hours is in the low range compared to what is found in other places on the market. As for the charging limited to 18 W, it is anything but fast contrary to what the manufacturer indicates.
