    I am a researcher who plows through volumes of information in making decisions, such as purchasing a new phone. While I cannot compare it to other phones on the market, this $400 phone has done everything I needed it too at a try-me-price! So far, I found it a good size for my hand; the battery lasts about two days with moderate use; and it includes some neat features. I mostly use my phone for communicating via voice and text, but I also read the news, listen to music, and play a game here and there. This amount of use would kill the battery in my old phone quickly, but the Pixel 3a keeps on going! I have only had it just over a week, but it does everything I need my phone to do. I have only taken a few photos, but the quality has been good, and the lighting adjustments worked well. The phone seems durable using it throughout the day in different locations. I like the squeeze feature as well! All Google means everything plays well together too!! So why only four stars, you ask? Well, one feature that seemed normal was voicemail. In every previous smartphone, I had the ability to select a voicemail and listen to it - i.e., there was an app for that. However, there is no way to access your voicemail on the Pixel 3a, so the only way to get your voicemail is to call your voicemail number... And, there does not seem to be a decent app in the Google Play Store. Being able to see your voicemail messages was a handy feature that seems to have disappeared. Please provide a simple app that allows you to see voicemail messages and play/pause/delete them OR similar to how I can see a transcript of a Google Assistant call's message by selecting the call, create a link to voicemail feature. Fix this and it is a 5-Star phone!

    Really like the longer, more narrow size of the Pixel 3a. Easier to hold and handle. Google phone has many less useless-built-in apps than my previous Samsung. I'm told that phone calls are much clearer and I agree that sound is very clear. There is a learning curve as far as swiping, settings, and location of items. Saving and sending attachments is also different from Samsung. Just takes some experimenting and practice. In addition, the Pixel 3a takes great pictures. Overall, a really good upgrade. I ordered a Spigen Rugged Armor case and Tauri glass screen protector and they are a perfect fit.

    Good budget phone with all of the perks and specs I wanted and more! The screen pops in colors, it functions smoothly, it charges fast and keeps a good charge all day and it takes fantastic pictures! Plus, it has the headphone jack and it isn't breaking my bank. I've went from Samsung, to a Moto to now a Pixel and so far the Pixel is my favorite!

    I purchased this phone as a gift for a friend that has a 3 year old phone. He's not the techiest person, so I wanted to get him something simple that he could easily use with no learning curve. So far the 3a is just that phone. He's basically becoming an amateur photographer and does nothing but take pictures of his newborn and new puppy. The battery life has been great and overall he has definitely enjoyed the upgrade.

    After 10 days of use, the phone seemingly hits all of my needs. Manual transfer of files and apps was quick and complete. Functions seamlessly and is comfortable to use. Now my experience with Best Buy is a different issue, but this is about the phone and not my buying experience

    I'm very pleased with this phone. Was expecting cheap plastic,but this is a pretty solid phone. Weight is about same as my pixel (original) just as fast. Android auto actually works better with both my cars now. And what a great price

    Was looking for a phone that would not cost an arm and a leg that had an excellent camera and did not force me to use Apples increasingly restrictive App Store. The photos from this phone are really nice and I have no complaints.

    Upgraded from a original pixel. Good value for the money. Technically I think this phone is slower, but the pixel's battery wasn't holding much of a charge anymore and it was starting to exhibit the microphone issue.

    For the what they are charging for this phone I almost feel bad. This is just as good if not better than any high end phone and half the price. Buying anything else would be head scratching.

    The Pixel 3A is an incredible phone and a great upgrade after years with my Galaxy s7. It doesn't even feel like a middle priced phone, it has all the speed and power of a flagship product!

    Purchased a Google Pixel 3a and had it activated on my Verizon account. Associate transferred everything from my old Droid phone in a few minutes and it works great.

    Solid phone with a great camera. My wife had a s9 which has a solid camera, but it's not close to the quality of the camera on the pixel 3.

    Good price for a very good phone. Just be careful Verizon doesn't charge you for an upgrade if you buy it at Best Buy.
