The Pixel 7a finally launched a couple of weeks ago, and it looks like one of the more impressive mid-rangers of 2023. For $50 extra compared to the 6a, consumers are getting a high refresh rate screen, wireless charging, more RAM, and a new main camera.

This is in addition to welcome features like long-term update support, the great Pixel camera experience, and some exclusive software features. At its core, the phone also delivers a pretty powerful performance courtesy of the semi-custom Tensor G2, the same processor powering the flagship Pixel 7 series.
