    We bought this camera for my husband as his just flat out gave up the ghost. He loves the larger size as he can see the screen better. He uses it for a great deal of online researching, maintaining his eBay account, GPS for his work as he drives to different destinations on a regular basis and of course, and he likes the sound quality. He is happy about it's ease of use and long battery life. Caught it on sale so it was a good deal. He loves his new phone and shows it to everyone.

    1st salesperson didn't know the difference between the 3xl & the 3axl. Second they had no screen protectors or cases available for the 3a. I was told it charged wirelessly. It did not. Life is busy. Didn't manage to get screen protector or case. Day 14 screen cracked. Then it found a pool. I am the proud owner of a paperweight Pixel 3aXL. True story. Sad but true. The low rating is on Best Buy's lack of knowledge & availability of accessories. Phone seemed decent while it worked. Fragile, very fragile.

    I replaced a Moto Droid with the Pixel 3a xl. When looking for a phone it had to meet these requirements: -Unlocked so I would be able to continue with Verizon pre-pay -Under $500 -Good camera. My Droid did not take sharp pictures. -Highly rated The Pixel 3a xl meet all of these requirements. I was especially pleased with how easy the camera was to use. The only minor issue I have, the battery rarely lasts 24 hours, I'm definitely glad I made this purchase.

    I had the 1st pixel that came out and really loved it so when I needed to replace it I chose to go with Pixel again. This model 3A XL is a lot less expensive than the Model 3 Xl and has all the features I need. Best Buy did not have a case to fit it so I went to Amazon and got a case and a glass screen protector.

    The phone performs well; I am happy with the purchase. It was a little disappointing to discover that I was unable to cast phone to tv through our existing Roku box (not that I really need to do that) - I think you need Chromecast, but it only makes sense that Google would want you to use their products.

    Considering I'm moving from a Droid Max to the Pixel 3a XL, just the OS upgrade from Android 4 to 9 was a big improvement. Nice response from phone processor regardless of task, no waiting between gestures and/or operations being performed by processor. Have not used camera much, but when I have, it has worked properly.

    We purchased 3 of the Google Pixel 3a. So far, I can't think of anything negative to say! I give my phone a pretty good workout everyday and so does my teenage daughter! No glitches or hesitation at all. It was so easy to set up, too! This phone takes beautiful photos and is a great value for the price!

    People like to say things like, "for the price this phone can't be beat." I would say for 2x the price it could not be beat. I use my phone a lot for talking, texting and watching shows. The battery life is great, the camera is awesome and everything just works. I highly recommend it.

    I have finally upgraded to a real phone. My 'free' phone had no memory and the camera was always blurry. Now I can run lots of apps and the camera is great. I can't compare it with equal phones but I like it and the price was reasonable.

    Half the price of the Pixel 3 XL and does everything I need. If I were a gamer, I might go with the XL but, besides that I can see no reason to spend the extra money.

    I had the first generation pixel. Unfortunately started to not hold charge after 2 years. I did like my pixel so decided to upgrade to XL. So far so good

    My last phone was an LG G6 and the only thing I miss is the wide angle camera. Other than that, I couldn't be happier with this Pixel 3a XL.

    First "Smart" phone I have had. Love it and discover something new every day...whether I want to or not. Paired with my watch. That is fun.

    Voice mail seems "old fashioned". Nuisance to transfer photos to PC. Overall not a good phone for someone who needs a phone for business.

    I switched from a Galaxy S7 Edge and I absolutely love this Google phone. Wish the speakers were better, but the camera is pretty great!
