If you subscribe to MrMobile, you probably already know that the Pixel 6a is a mid-range version of a well-received smartphone from one of the biggest companies on the planet. But in the week since most reviewers rendered their verdicts, it’s become more than that: now it’s the focal point of a debate about what really matters in smartphones. How you feel about a product will always depend on your particular priorities, but that’s never been more true than it is with this new phone, which is fantastic (as long as you take it for what it is). I’m Michael Fisher and if what you want is a review that doesn’t harp on screen refresh rates for a midrange phone – you may find this video “refreshing” as well. Join me for MrMobile’s Google Pixel 6a Review!



MrMobile’s Google Pixel 6a Review was produced following twelve days with a Google Pixel 6a review sample provided by Google. An earlier review sample provided by Google was defective and returned to the company. Pre-production devices running pre-release software. Tested on Google Fi in New York City and two other markets.

MrMobile does not accept compensation from the manufacturers of the products he reviews in exchange for producing content. No payment was provided and no manufacturer or carrier was afforded a preview, editorial input or copy approval rights concerning this review. The lone sponsor of this video is HelloFresh.
