Google's most affordable Pixel phone is now down to an all-new record low price – as long as you have an existing phone to trade in. Despite its budget-friendly characteristics, you benefit from a super-fast processor and an amazing camera for the cost, plus the slick Android interface is easy to use.

You can read more about it in our Google Pixel 7a review but Google's most affordable Pixel is "faster than it should be and looks great in photos." The performance results from the phone having the same powerful processor as the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. This power will keep things moving, even if you're a keen multi-tasker.

The other big win with the Pixel 7a is its photo capabilities. With its 64 MP camera, smart AI functionality and a Tensor G2 chip behind it, the 7a shoots some excellent photos. This phone will produce great results, whether for holiday snaps, family photos, or for work purposes where something more professional is needed.
