The Google Pixel 3a XL is the bigger sized brother of Google's first mid-range smartphone- The Google Pixel 3a. The Google Pixel 3a XL is virtually identical to the Google Pixel 3a in specs expect the screen size. Both the mobile phones try to keep the best aspect of the Google Pixel 3 series of phones- its camera, while compromising on other areas to cut costs. The Google Pixel 3a XL was released in July 2019. Pretty unanimously voted the Best Smartphone of 2018- the Google Pixel 3 was also my daily driver. Till I changed to the OnePlus 7 Pro in 2019 due to Google's security reasons.

The phone misses out on the IP68 water resistance and swaps Gorilla Glass protection for Dragontrail glass. The slightly lesser cousins of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL also miss out on the Snapdragon 845 and make do with the Snapdragon 670. Both, octa-core however. You also miss out on dual front firing speakers of the pixel 3 and 3 XL, and only get one stereo speaker. However, you get that 3.5mm jack for that good mid-range feel as an Indian consumer.
