If there's an Android phone from 2020 that sticks out as one of the best values, it has to be the Google Pixel 4a. Coming in at just $349, the Pixel 4a delivers an incredible camera, a great OLED display, reliable battery life, and more.

Here's a question, though: given how affordable the Pixel 4a is and all the good it brings to the table, how does its performance hold up? The Snapdragon 730 chipset and 6GB of RAM aren't the most technically impressive specs out there, so is it enough power for day-to-day use?

We thought so in Pixel 4a review, and taking a look through the AC forums, our community members seem to think the same.

I've not observed any performance issues on my Pixel 4a. I also don't game at all. I and my wife love these phones and all the features.


I haven't noticed any lag or performance issues as well. Very pleased.


Zero performance issues on mine.


Mine has been good so far.

  • actually yes. the only games I've played seriously on this phone have been Genshin impact and Minecraft but I've had the graphics settings sorta medium high on GI and I've been playing it at 60hz. there have been a few stutters but this has only happened while gaming in the bath. (yes, I play intensive games while in a steaming hot bath.) I've also played a few other games but I haven't invested as much time into them. (asphalt 9, pubg mobile, cod mobile, etc) so to conclude, it's good enough for pretty much any game on the play store, but it will be beaten by 865 phones.
  • Very happy with mine. A workhorse device and battery lasts for a long time too. No issues with performance either. Durable too. Dropped many times, no screen protector and still looks great.
