Many brands including some models of xiaomi, oneplus and samsung have ditched the sd slot, the only diferencie is that Google did It first on the Nexus series
Why tf are all these snowflakes crying about the ROM? ITS EFFIN 128GB. Don't you have external storage or maybe a PC or a lappy? If you can't afford the cloud storage, don't buy this phone. But yeah, great phone 10/10 would buy.

Low internal storage naturally means FASTER wear and tear of internal storage and faster fill up. Frequent read/write/erase on the same sectors, because if limited storage means you'll quickly degrade them and you'll suffer lags from near full storage and lags from worn out internal storage earlier. These lags from internal storage wear are permanent since no factory reset will revive a worn or bad storage sector.
This means, you're more likely to have to replace your Pixel phone before it even reaches end of software support.
Strategies above are both really good for Google's business model. Not only will you pay for Google's cloud storage forever, but you'll also be accelerating your Pixel phone replacement due to rapid internal storage wear. Add to that the small battery capacity of Pixel phones. Small battery capacity means frequent charging cycles and frequent deep discharge levels (battery level frequently going below 20% before recharging due to low battery capacity), both of which are very damaging to battery longevity.
In short, Google makes more money and as a bonus, can improve machine learning algorithms on face and object detection in your photos so Google can produce more relevant ads for you (based on the kind of photos/media you upload to its cloud servers).

Unless if your meeting room is still using analog projectors with acetate transparencies.
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2020Hi, I would like to hear you opinion about Pixel 4a vs. Huawei P30. My current phone just die... moreWe're having the same dilemma. In the end, I've decided to just wait for the Pixel 4a since I don't like the notch in the P30 and I'd really love to experience owning a Pixel phone. My wife has the P30 pro, it's nice and takes good pictures but it's too large for me. Even the P30 is slightly bigger than the Pixel 4a.
Can someone please explain why these phones are so expensive? I'm really really interested to know, maybe i'm missing something, because I don't understand and it does not make any sense.
For a phone just released it has at least 1 year old components, sub par specifications and price bigger than other phones.
I'm looking for a compact phone, but not at this price lol

You think they are typing notes and spreadsheets on their phones? You think they just pull out their phones when they have their laptops already at hand?
Hint: They don't
✍️,Pixel 4a camera performance is just awesome and unbeatable among all the existing phone under 45K.
I've had my 3a for 6 months or so. Did not consider the storage limitation. Now I feel some regret. Is it really cheaper for the company to limit the storage capacity? I do not get it. Maybe 128 would have to be some kind of minimum in my book.
