Any time a new phone is released, we wait with bated breath for JerryRigEverything to try to destroy it for our viewing pleasure. Google's new Pixel 3a was his latest victim — and despite its plastic build, the phone passed Zack's durability test with flying colors.

Pixel 3a and 3a XL review: They make almost any phone under $500 look bad

The Pixel 3a, Google’s new entry-level smartphone starts at an attractive $399, and comes in only two configurations: regular and extra large. The 3a XL is the phone I’ve been using for over a week now, and it costs a bit more, at $479. But that seems eminently reasonable for the larger 6” screen and 3700mAh battery the extra $80 net you. Otherwise, there really aren’t any noteworthy differences: both phones have 64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM (yes, yes, I know), Snapdragon 670 processors, and identical cameras. And no doubt, many people’s first question with a cheaper version of any phone will be “what am I giving up?” To be sure, that’s important - and you can find the answers over here.

Pixel 3a: Everything new, different, or removed compared to the Pixel 3 and 3 XL

The Pixel 3a and 3a XL are finally official, and many of you will likely be asking the same question: what's different? Given they come in at just half the price of their premium forebears - $399 and $479, respectively - Google's obviously nipped and tucked a few features, materials, and components in order to shave four-hundred-plus dollars off these phones. So, let's get to it.

The LG G8 is a good phone that can't escape some of the bad ideas behind it

Right now, the dominant trend in flagship smartphone design is one of refinement. Instead of aiming to sell shoppers on the appeal of tricks like modular hardware, or overloading a handset with gimmicky sensors, successful phones are instead trying to achieve the platonic ideal of basically existing as little more than one big screen. That's driven recent efforts like the proliferation of in-display fingerprint sensors, pop-out selfie cams, and the evolution of the notch to hole-punch designs. But you wouldn't know much of that, to look at the LG G8 ThinQ.

With the Moto G7, Lenovo finally killed the G-series magic

Motorola started the trend of cheap phones that aren't junk with the original Moto G back in 2013. That was the first time you could buy a phone for a couple hundred bucks that would get you through a day without making you want to hurl it through the nearest window. The success of that phone led other OEMs to target lower prices, and the battle rages to this day. However, Motorola has moved the Moto G a bit more up-market. Each successive generation has been a little more expensive, but some premium smartphone features are still missing.

Redmi 7 arrives with Snapdragon 632, 4,000mAh battery, and gradient hues for around $105

Xiaomi announced in January that it would be turning Redmi into an independent brand, if only for the sake of appearances. The first Redmi phone to launch thereafter was the unfortunately-named Note 7, with a 48MP camera and beefy 4,000mAh battery. The ultra-budget Redmi Go came next, and the company has just unveiled yet another affordable device.
