Full Story

Oh boy, the Pixel 8a might just be sneaking up on us. Could it be priced the same as the Pixel 7a, which hits the wallet at $499? Well, if you’re in the market for a bargain that punches way above its weight, Google’s got something for you. Their current-gen mid-ranger is now a staggering 50% off. Yes, you read that right.

Best Buy’s slashing the Pixel 7a’s price from $499 all the way down to $249. Now, that’s a steal for anyone who thinks dropping a ton of cash on phones is just, well, silly.

But here’s the catch – you gotta activate the phone today. Doesn’t seem too much to ask, right? Especially considering the bang for your buck. And for those who aren’t keen on that, Best Buy’s throwing a bone with a $150 discount on the unlocked version. Not too shabby, eh?

Now, let’s gab about the Pixel 7a itself. This little gem is pretty much in the same fashion league as its pricier siblings, the Pixel 7 series. And guess what? It’s powered by the same brainy Tensor G2 chip. So, unlike other budget-friendly phones, this one’s smooth as butter.

Google didn’t skimp on the display either. The phone flaunts a 6.1-inch OLED screen, with a refresh rate that’s nothing to scoff at – 90Hz. And the camera? Let’s just say it could easily make other phones blush with envy. Paired with a 4,385mAh battery, this phone’s ready to go the distance, all day long.

But wait, there’s more. The Pixel 7a packs features you’d normally see in those high-end, wallet-busting phones. We’re talking Face Unlock, wireless charging, and then some.

And, oh, Google’s been playing with AI since before it was the cool thing to do. So, you get nifty tools like Direct My Call, which makes ringing up businesses a breeze. Not to mention, photography tricks up its sleeve like Magic Eraser and Photo Unblur to spruce up your snaps.

So, yeah. If you’re after a phone that’s easy on the pocket but doesn’t skimp on the goodies, the Pixel 7a might just be your next tech crush.
