Amazon sells Google’s Pixel 6a handset in charcoal(Opens in a new window)accompanied by a $50 voucher, for $449 – $50 off the retail price of $499.

Google’s latest mid-range smartphone, the Pixel 6a, earned the PCMag Editors’ Choice seal of approval, thanks to its solid performance, incredible battery life and outstanding design. Powered by the manufacturer’s Tensor processor, the phone comes with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a 4,410mAh battery that lasts around 29 hours.

What the 6-inch handset lacks in a microSD slot and 3.5mm headphone jack, it more than makes up for with a vivid OLED screen and solid cameras. A punch-hole selfie shooter sits atop the front display, behind a slab of Corning Gorilla Glass 3, while a 12.2MP dual-pixel rear camera and ultra-wide sensor are housed in a horizontal bar single at the back.

Users can count on an IP67 rating, making the device fully dustproof and able to withstand temporary immersion in water at depths of up to 3.3 feet for 30 minutes. Instead of a face unlock option, the phone comes with an under-display fingerprint scanner, along with a pair of speakers and a USB-C port along the bottom edge.
