Phone help need
Asia tonymontana14 
I'm getting my first phone, and I'm thinking about getting Pixel 4a. (Budget anything under 400 usd) Things I prefer in phones: Small and compact, Good Camera and Battery, Decent Display, Longevity of around 4-5 years. Any suggestions or your experience with pixel 4a?

pixel 5a is out and it is good phone for just people who dont wanna mess with their phone much and good camera poco f3 is very good deal too but mi ui is very shit so you would have to learn how to put a custom rom on it but its not a small phone

Photos on poco are terrible, same could be say of xiaomi because of their AI blurring skin. For everything else, that poco is a steal for that price. Photos on pixel will be good, can't say the same about videos. Don't know if the latest op nord2 has good camera, but could be another option.

install gcam (app that makes pixel camera very good) 1+ nord good as well
2021-10-14 13:49
I was considering nord 2 until I saw the new color os update which will go on the 1+ phones from now on

In theory, new color os is gonna be a mix between color and oxygen, so I hope it's gonna be the best of both worlds.

5a costs around 650 here :( I hate mi ui and other os in general (like stock android or ios) , Also the reason not going for OnePlus since they are removing their os completely with oppo's color os with new updates.

wow 650 euro is overpriced.... the 4a is good phone but definitely doesnt have the specs of the poco, if you would learn how to install roms on it it would fix your issue.

I installed pixel experience on my 5 year old phone and liked it alot. But If I install on for eg. Nord 2, I will lose my phone warranty and considering I have to atleast go through 4 years with this one, Idk if I can take that risk.

You do have some insight about smartphones without owning one before.

Gotcha. I would recommend some Samsung model but you dislike Android.

No I love android, It's just I don't like the android offered by Mi phones or oppo phones with their wierd skins. My brother has a samsung phone and I honestly like it. I was considering A52 but the only issue is, its too big. I have used ios previously but haven't owned one so idk if its good or not. Its just Ios is clean with no bloatware ad crap
2021-10-14 14:17
Maybe some model of OnePlus.

yes, relatives decided to buy iphones (1 xr 1 se) and the guy with se complains about battery and it already says battery lifetime like 90% or smth but he is happy with the phone otherwise and the person with xr very happy with it, just the xr is more outdated then the se except the display

I have the SE now for a little bit over a year now. I must say i'm not a heavy user but my battery rests for at least 2 days. After coming home from work it has like 84% battery. 9hours work plus 1h travel.

Yeah but i really must say that i don't use it much during these 10hours. Maybe some chatting on WhatsApp.
2021-10-14 14:04
I had 2 SEs and the battery is trash... Even worse is the fact that both phones randomly stopped working. One lost its touchscreen and the other all signals...
2021-10-14 14:08
Just get xiaomi mi 11 or some shit

Huawai Mate 20. Super cheap, but such a good phone. Insane camera, battery and hardware for a cheap price. Don't get iPhone SE, it's trash.
2021-10-14 14:08
4a isn't good if you care about battery and longevity. I would suggest S20FE in this budget, but it is a pretty big phone. S21 is smaller but more expensive. Or just go iphone if you don't care.
2021-10-14 14:32
Pixel always had insane photos so you won't be disappointed imo
