Did you pre-order the Pixel 4a?

Yesterday, August 3, was an exciting one in the Android space. After months and months of delays, Google finally unveiled the Pixel 4a and made the phone available for pre-order and there are even some Pixel 4a deals already.

The Pixel 4a already stands out as one of the best values the smartphone market has to offer, featuring an AMOLED display, excellent camera, good performance, and top-notch software for just $349. It's quite the value proposition if we've ever heard one, and it's something that seems to be resonating with a few of our AC forum members.

Some of them recently shared that they're already jumped aboard the Pixel 4a bandwagon, saying:

Ordered mine! I really hope Google keeps carving out the value niche by letting Apple/Samsung fight over the $$$ categories. I’m looking forward to the 2020 Nexus!


Ordered mine in Black just like my Coffee, and the Ford Model A I bought in '25....:D


I ordered too, but I may cancel before it ships. I need to decide if I can live without wireless charging. I'm excited to have the AptXHD BT audio codec again though so I can use my amazing Audio Technica HD audio headphones, which sound so much better than my Sony WH-1000XM3s. I'm so used to not having a headphone jack that I would gladly trade the headphone jack for wireless charging...


What about you? Did you pre-order the Pixel 4a?
