Of course, not everyone can be attributed to Pixel 3a, and Google has not broken down what exactly pushed this growth. The more expensive Pixel 3 & # 39; s have been selling some times since launch, which could have helped increase numbers. But there are almost no brains: the company sells more units, simply by offering more options and at a lower price. But it's not just about affordability. Pixel 3a does not compromise too much for the reduced price, which may have helped it shake off some of the stigma that comes with cheaper phones.
3a has a smaller, lower maintained OLED display and slower processor than the 3, and lacks water resistance and a camera at the front. But compare it to the iPhone XR, which is fatter and has a less sharp LCD panel compared to XS & # 39; Retina OLED. XR also loses the second rear camera from the flagship siblings. It's not a big step down, but XR's $ 750 price makes its tradeoffs harder to take.
