Performance, battery life and charge

Judging these phones always be difficult. A Pixel is always nice to use and these are no exception. However, there is a winner in terms of objective power, since the Pixel 3 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, which outperforms the Pixel 2 Snapdragon 835.

The capacity of the battery has increased constantly, with the Pixel 3a showing the best performance. Unlike the Pixel 3, the mid-range phone provides a good battery life for a whole day. The cargo is where the last flagship is fired: all three are characterized by fast loading, but only the Pixel 3 comes with the wireless Qi load.

While the performance of Pixel 3a vs. Pixel 3 vs. Pixel 2 is suitable, the most powerful processor and Qi wireless charging give Pixel 3 the victory.

Winner: Pixel 3

Design and durability

Google's designs for the Pixel range generate split opinions, even many rated them as ugly. Google took a long time to adopt the design trends of other manufacturers, so none is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S10 or the iPhone XS. The Pixel 2 is the worst due to its large bezels. Pixel 3 and 3a are the most attractive, with thinner bezels. The Pixel 3a is also the only one that includes a headphone jack.

Pixel 3a is made of polycarbonate, while Pixel 3 and Pixel 2 have more luxurious materials. The Pixel 3 is completely glass, while the Pixel 2 has an aluminum body with a glass panel. Of course, glass is fragile, so Pixel 2 aluminum and Pixel 3a polycarbonate are likely to be more durable. Still, a cover is recommended for all three. The Pixel 3 also has an advantage in waterproofing, thanks to an IP68 rating, slightly higher than the IP67 rating of Pixel 2. The Pixel 3a only has resistance to splashes and dust.

It is a difficult round, with many advantages for Pixel 3a vs.. Pixel 3 vs. Pixel 2. However, the most attractive design of Pixel 3 and strong waterproofing give it the victory.

Winner: Pixel 3


We compare the screens of the Pixel 3a vs. Pixel 3 vs. Pixel 2Julian Chokkattu / Digital Trends

Google has made sacrifices to reduce the price of the Pixel 3a to mid-range levels, but the screen does not appear to be one. It has a 5.6-inch OLED screen with an aspect ratio of 18.5: 9 with a resolution of 2,280 x 1,080 pixels. It is slightly larger than the 5.5-inch Pixel 3, and considerably larger than the 5-inch Pixel 2. The larger size implies that it is not as sharp, but as it is OLED, it comes with a wide range of colors and blacks well defined.

Although the Pixel 3a gives a great fight, the Pixel 3 screen has a better resolution of 443 pixels per inch.

Winner: Pixel 3
