Google launched the Pixel 6a and delivered a good Android smartphone. Nevertheless, it should quickly become clear what Google needs to do better with the Pixel 7a. The Google Pixel 6a does not allow itself many weaknesses, except perhaps the RRP of 459 euros.
It’s okay but offers room for more modern features. I found almost nothing wrong with the Pixel 6a, but I would definitely like to see some improvements in the Pixel 7a. I would like to explain to you what these are in the following lines.
Google should install a faster display
In my opinion, there is no way around the 90 Hz display in this price range. Google gave the Pixel 6a the current Google Tensor, so there is enough system performance for the user to really have a visible advantage from a 90 Hz display. That’s not always the case, as I noticed with the Redmi Note 11.
Such a fast display simply makes a difference and brings the user more value for everyday life. Once you’ve had it, you don’t want to go down again. That just has to be in the Pixel 7a.
Charging technology: Google has to offer a little more
While the old camera technology doesn’t bother me because it still delivers top-notch recordings, I think it’s important to take a step into the present with the integrated charging technology.
Google still hasn’t integrated wireless charging despite an RRP of 459 euros, and that’s a real hindrance to my everyday life. I charge wirelessly in the car, at my desk and in bed. That’s good for the battery and it’s also comfortable.
Fast charging isn’t that important to me, but I’m sure other customers do. The maximum of 18 watts per cable is no longer befitting. You can already expect 30 watts in this price range.
