What is the difference between the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a 5G?

Don't be fooled - there's more to the differences between the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a 5G models than simply being compatible with the fifth generation of mobile connectivity. While the Pixel 4a 5G will offer a stronger and faster performance than the Pixel 4a when you're not connected to Wi-Fi, the Pixel 4a 5G also has a bigger blueprint with its 6.2-inch FHD+ OLED display, versus the Pixel 4a's 5.5 FHD+ AMOLED display with the former offering a more superior display.

The Pixel 4a 5G also trumps with its rear camera set-up, boasting two sensors with increased pixels - a 12MP and 16MP dual lens camera. Meanwhile the Pixel 4a's rear camera compiles of a dual 12.2MP lens. The former takes the lead in shooting versatility, adding Cinematic Pan and its ultrawide lens to its repertoire alongside Night Sight, Live HDR+ and Portrait Light features.

That being said, Google's smartphones have always impressed due to the processing software of its cameras. In that sense, it's all about what happens after the shutter closes, with both cameras capturing vivid images, performing particularly well in low lighting conditions with its Night Sight mode.

The differences continue under the hood with the Pixel 4a powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, while the Pixel 4a 5G is equipped with the Qualcomm Snadragon 765G. In terms of battery cells, the former houses a 3140mAh cell. Keeping up with its 5G functionality, the Pixel 4a 5G receives a slight advantage with its 3885mAH cell.

While it may seem like there's a lot in it, these are still both decent handsets. Need more help deciding which is the one for you. Why not check out our reviews for the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a 5G to help you make up your mind?
