Google’s new Pixel 6a phone finally hit store shelves this week, and so far, the phone appears to be a huge hit. In addition, Google launched the premium Pixel Buds Pro, which are probably the company’s best wireless earbuds to date. Both devices offer the best of what Google has to offer in smartphones and audio, and are well worth a look if you’re considering buying a new smartphone or earbuds.
Pre-orders opened on July 21, so consumers had some time to make their decisions. However, we want to know if you have purchased the latest Google hardware.
The Pixel 6a is Google’s latest mid-range smartphone, and it competes with the likes of some of the best cheap Android phones from companies like Samsung and Motorola. While the hardware is a step down from its flagship counterparts, the Tensor chipset seems to make up for it, delivering flagship-level performance for the mid-range device.
There are indeed some hiccups that users have noticed with the new device, particularly with the fingerprint sensor, but the phone looks like a very solid option.
Meanwhile, the new Pixel Buds Pro are Google’s first wireless earbuds with Active Noise Canceling (ANC), taking the company’s audio efforts to another level. It offers a clear audio experience, useful features like Live Translate, and a voice switching feature that seamlessly switches devices depending on your usage.
Of course, these devices arrive just before the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event, as Samsung prepares to unveil its latest smartphones and earphones. Google also has a Pixel 7 launch later this year which could be more attractive to Pixel fans looking for a more flagship experience.
