With its Google Pixel, the web giant is struggling to offer smartphones as powerful as the Samsung, Huawei and company, but at an optimal price-quality ratio. The Google Pixel 6 range has been acclaimed by critics in particular thanks to its new Google Tensor chip and the photo component, the Google Pixel 6a has even been voted best photophone during a giant blind test in 2022. This smartphone is made of all the more want that its price goes from 459 euros to only 239 euros at Boulanger.
Even if it is a smartphone lite, or lighter, the Google Pixel 6a has great arguments that will satisfy even those who are not fans of this type of smartphone. Among other things, it allows you to take beautiful shots and take advantage of the performance of the Google Tensor chip and Android 13 without breaking your savings plan. At the moment, the Google Pixel 6a is showing an unprecedented reduction of almost 50%, which is unheard of for this smartphone.
The advantages of the Google Pixel 6a
- The image processing algorithm that enhances your photos
- Performance equivalent to that of the Google Pixel 6
- OLED screen in FHD+
Instead of the usual 459 euros, the Google Pixel 6a is now displayed at 339 euros at Boulanger, but a take-back bonus of 100 euros for an old device (smartphone, tablet, etc.) allows you to get it for only 239 euros. It is therefore necessary to choose in-store pickup to place your order.

Google Pixel 6a at the best price?
Best camera of the year 2022
The Google Pixel 6a is one of the most advanced compact smartphones on the market. It shows off a 6.1-inch OLED panel in Full HD+ resolution (1,080 x 2,400 pixels) but whose refresh rate does not exceed 60 Hz. Which is a first concession compared to the Pixel 6 which has a frame rate of 90 Hz. The brightness was measured at 755 cd / m² at its peak during our test and the OLED display technology allows you to enjoy excellent contrasts and ultra-deep blacks.
In terms of photo sensors, we are in the presence of two modules: a main sensor of 12.2 Mpx (f / 1.7) and an ultra wide-angle of 12 Mpx (f / 2.2) and 114 °. Nothing alluring, and yet… At the end of 2022, videographer Marques Brownlee organized a blind test giant to determine which smartphone took the best photos. Between the iPhone 14 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, Google Pixel 7 Pro and Huawei Mate 50 Pro, it was the Google Pixel 6a that emerged victorious in the competition.
A success due to the versatility of the Google Pixel 6a, in portrait, night or ultra wide-angle mode, it’s a big yes! Image processing algorithms also work wonders by enhancing skin tones or improving the sharpness of shots. Finally, you benefit from several features such as the magic eraser to “trick” your shots.
The performance of the Google Tensor chip in the spotlight
The Google Pixel 6 range also caused a stir thanks to its Google Tensor processor, announced as the first SoC entirely designed by the Mountain View company. In reality, this chip would be a derivative of the Exynos 2100 and would therefore come from a collaboration with Samsung. Nevertheless, the performance is up to what is expected of a mid-range smartphone, with enough power to navigate at ease and launch the software you want. However, it shows its limits on greedy games which can quickly increase the heat.
There is also 6 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB of storage, which is more than enough to store applications and photos in quantity. The biggest concession to accept for this Google Pixel 6a would be at the battery level, the autonomy measured at more than 10 hours is in the low range compared to what is found elsewhere on the market. As for the recharging limited to 18 W, it is anything but fast contrary to what the manufacturer indicates.
