Pixel 4a to ditch Active Edge squeeze feature

Pixel 4a to ditch Active Edge squeeze feature

Google's Pixel "a" line is really all about compromises, practically asking how far users can go without high-end features just to get an affordable "pure" Android phone. Some might be fine without fancy radars but there are a few features that have become more or less a Pixel staple. One of those is the squeezable sides of the phone that has been around since 2017.

If this rumored Pixel 5 price is real, are you buying?

The next Google Pixel is rumored to roll with a premium tier, a device series with an "Ultra" Pixel of sorts. Details revealed by a real-deal Google survey suggest they're looking into pricing a Google Pixel smartphone well above what they've charged in the past.

Pixel 4a benchmarks hint it could save the day yet again

Pixel 4a benchmarks hint it could save the day yet again

It seems that history will be repeating itself this year. There have already been murmurs about how the Pixel 4's lackluster reception and sales are causing trouble inside Google. That may be a bit of a deja vu when the Pixel 3 duo also did so poorly last year. The Pixel's reputation was salvaged when it launched the Pixel 3a and 3a XL around this same time last year. It seems that the Pixel 4a (no 4a XL this time), could do the same, at least based on benchmarks of a pre-release device.

Pixel 4 XL prototype shows the gray option that never was

Google often has rather interesting names for its Pixel phone color options and last year's generation was no different. Not everyone, however, might be fond of the Oh So Orange, Clearly White, and Just Black choices for the Pixel 4 XL but one can always slap on a skin or a case that matches one's tastes better. Still, there's something to be said about a phone that comes in a buyer's color of choice out of the box, and for lovers of Gray, this Pixel 4 XL prototype taunts them with what could have been.
