The Pixel purchasing puzzle of 2020

It’s a weird year for Pixel phones.

I’ve been spending some time with Google’s current trio of homemade Android devices — the flagship Pixel 5, the budget-minded Pixel 4a, and the confusingly in-between Pixel 4a (5G) — and lemme tell ya: This isn’t your typical Pixel lineup.

Between Google’s pivot to a more value-minded approach and the midyear manufacturing delays caused by this lovely little pandemic of ours, the Pixel family of 2020 ended up looking pretty different than what we’ve grown accustomed to expecting. And if you’re thinking of picking up a new Pixel phone for yourself or your workplace, it’s more than a little difficult to sort out which model makes the most sense for any given purpose and whether it’s a worthwhile upgrade from an older Pixel model.

Having lived with all three 2020 Pixel phones now, I think I’ve sorted out what the lineup’s actually all about, why it’s so damn confusing, and how you can know which specific Pixel option is (or isn’t!) right for you.

Let’s break it all down, shall we?

Pixel 5, Pixel 4a, and Pixel 4a (5G): Reframing and renaming the phones

Part of the reason this Pixel lineup is so tricky to process, I think, is that the phones’ names don’t make much sense.
