Last year, the Pixel 3a family was a surprise hit for Google’s struggling smartphone business. Can it duplicate that success in 2020?
Possibly. Based on many, many leaks, the upcoming Pixel 4a does bring forward most of what customers liked about its predecessor, and it even offers a nice improvement in a key area that was a problem for the Pixel 3a. But Google is also making one big mistake with this release. And it means that I won’t be buying one. I suspect I’m not alone.
