    If you have access to this AMEX statement credit offer, you could buy it from the Google store then use the OW price to immediately price match Google, making it $467.

      Officeworks won’t price match the AMEX offer.

    Not bad but you may be better off getting a 3XL from MobileCiti for $479.

      4a is supported 2 years longer and it's smaller. Camera wise they are pretty similar.

        3XL is not a good idea for this reason, unless you love custom ROMs…

        Go 4a, or better yet save for a 4a 5g.

            @Ronnnie: App support is only one piece of the puzzle. The major issue is security.

            You can minimise your risk by sticking to known apps, blocking ads(on device or via DNS) and sticking to known websites, avoiding email.

            Ultimately, you're still at risk. Most people wouldn't browse the net with an unpatched PC, browsing with an old mobile OS is basically the same.

            Especially for a phone, keeping it updated is strongly recommended.

                @Ronnnie: Security isn't something that should be downplayed. Sure, you may be a low risk target or you may be careful.
                The average user doesn't think about actions like browsing the web, reading email, opening files or downloading apps. One malicious link and your device could be compromised.

                Once a device stops being patched, risk increases. Android isn't magic. It's open source and is analysed for security defects. If you are compromised, it may not be obvious. It may be something subtle like advertising or theft of user details or contacts. Users may never know they were a victim.

                If you have the means to stay up to date with security, you should. If you don't, you should stay cautious.

      It's worth noting that there are no guaranteed upgrades after October.

    what is the difference between 5g version and 4g version except the 5g network because not good 5g coverrage in WA

    • +4 votes

      The 5g model is actually a fair bit different. From memory it has a larger screen and better processor.

      • +6 votes

        Ultrawide camera as well, better battery life.

          The battery life of the 5G version is worse, according to the tests here: compare the 4a with the 4a 5G.

          •  

            @PeterA07: Oh, my bad.
            I wonder if the availability of 5G coverage would make much of a difference, or even just forcing the phone to only use 4G or lower?

            • +2 votes

              @gamerkonks: I disable 5G on my Xiaomi because the battery life is awful with it turned on. If I leave it on, I can't get a day's worth of battery life, even with minimal use

        thanks

    I'd grab a 5g if I am after this. Extra $50 should not be an issue.

    • +5 votes

      OP nailed it. Some, including myself, prefer the smaller phone. Had the 5g before downsizing. Much happier with the 4a.

  •  

    Does this have the unlimited photo storage?
    I searched and gave different facts. But seem like 4a is the last model before the cut off for unlimited google storage? e.g. pixel 5 not eligible

    • +1 vote

      Unlimited high quality, not original quality like previous iterations. I'm not too sure about this since Google changed things up recently.

    •  

      Unlimited high quality Yes.

  •  

    Is this a wise investment to use as free photo backup machine for next few years? (so i can move my photos from galaxy to pixel for free google upload.)

    •  

      Is this proven to work?

    •  

      i wonder the same thing, is free backup only applicable to camera roll only.

      Currently using a Pixel4, but I bought a 2nd hand Pixel1XL for $80ish last year for this exact reason. The battery on it is completely shagged (turns off at 80%, only takes 5 mins to drop from 100 to 80), but it is permanently plugged into my home server. I've uploaded all my old DSLR raw files from it (>20k files) as well as any high quality shots that I take on my P4 or my wife's P5.

    Great price. Has the best camera around for that price point too. Couldn't believe the quality. Compared to my iPhone 12 Max Pro, I would find it hard to distinguish between them both on a simple point & click test, though I'm sure those with a finer eye in detail would, for most this would be a great choice.

    This or Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro for circa 400$?

    •  

      Also keen to know from OzMobile experts! :D

  •  

    this or Samsung A52? eBay sales have it at under $520.
    A52 has bigger screen and is waterproof
    but I kinda like smaller form factor of pixel

      A52 has expandable storage too

      Pixel any day. Especially if you use your camera- pixel will demolish a52

      • -1 vote

        Sounds like an uninformed comment. I thought the pixel 4a would demolish in the camera department too.Then I looked at reviews on the A52 and Samsung certainly have caught up in midrange phones in terms of cameras. Demolishing days are over for the pixel at this price point it seems. Maybe Google will start using more modern sensors and skip away again. Here hoping the next pixel offerings do improve things. Nowadays we have really hit the wall for phone camera tech.

        The A52 is a current gen midrange offering and the pixel 4a is last gen, so I don’t think it’s that fair comparison in the first place. With that being said if the choice is a smaller Android phone then pixel is probably one of your only options. I don’t see much value in the A52 when you can buy the S20 FE for a little extra with flagships type hardware. That’s just my 2 cents.

    Excellent, thank you! Bought Nov last year and just made a price protection claim on my Coles credit card

    •  

      Lucky you with the grandfathered policy :P

  •  

    For those wanting a custom de-Googled Android experience, is this the pick? (e.g. Lineage or Graphene OS)

    •  

      yes, the google phones have an unlockable bootloader and are well supported in the rom community

  •  

    Great if you after compact and light weight. Myself using S10e dual sim version which is almost identical in size (picked galaxy for better screen).

  •  

    Damn… Just bought this from them for $597 a couple of weeks ago. Do they do retrospective pricematch?
