Google shakes up smart phone industry with lower cost Pixel 3a

Techstination feature for Friday, May 17, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   Google is shaking up the smart phone industry with the introduction of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL….with a price tag starting at 399 dollars.   The move combined with some more reasonably priced phones from Apple…is welcome news for consumers.   It proves you don’t need to spend a thousand dollars or more for a great device with full features.   Including, says Google’s Justin Burr…a top notch camera…

“Still got the great camera that has night sight which is great to take photos in low light when you don’t necessarily or can’t necessarily use the flash or don’t want to use the flash.   Makes the colors still pop even in that low light scenario.  Also still has the portrait mode on the front and back cameras.  Also got 30 hours of battery life, which is helpful and yes, it does have a headphone jack.”

It’s on sale now.   And look for big improvements coming to Google Assistant and a new version of Android as well.
