Pixel 5 and 4a 5G get their first monthly updates with plenty of fixes in tow

November updates are rolling out now for Google's Pixels, and that includes the brand-new Pixel 5 and 4a 5G. Functional patch notes mention a whole pile of fixes for both new phones, as well as older Pixels. That includes fixes for the screen waking at certain times when it shouldn't, inadvertently hidden system navigation during full-screen playback, issues with ringer audio for starred contacts in DND mode, and resolutions for a handful of Android Auto bugs. As expected, the Pixel 2 and 2 XL have no update this month.

Upgrade your phone's wardrobe with 50% off Google's fabric cases for the Pixel 4 and 3a

Google tends to play it safe when it comes to the design of its Pixel lineup, but that doesn't mean Pixel owners have to settle for a boring look. While most folks wouldn't consider Google's hardware design very exciting, there's no denying that the company's official fabric cases look a lot more fetching. And right now, the Google Store is offering 50% off Pixel 4 and Pixel 3a fabric cases, dropping the price to just $20.

Pixel 4a vs. Pixel 3a: What's new in Google's 2020 budget phone?

Pixel 4a vs. Pixel 3a: What's new in Google's 2020 budget phone?

The Pixel 3a was our phone of the year in 2019, and for a lot of very good reasons. At $400, it offered a camera experience that many phones costing twice as much couldn't, and an update policy no other Android OEM could match. With the Pixel 4a, then, Google had a lot to live up to, and we weren't sure they could outdo the 3a without compromising on price (and you should read our review of it). It turns out, we were wrong: the 4a makes a few notable changes to the formula Google introduced with the 3a, but their collective impact results in an objectively better smartphone at a lower price.

With the announcement of the new Pixel 4a, the Google Store is cutting prices on fabric case options for the Pixel 3a/3a XL and Pixel 4/4 XL down to just $20, a savings of 50%.

Killer deals: Pixel 3a and 3a XL are down to $279 and $319 (up to $160 off)

Rumors of this year's Pixel 4a abound, but the device's release date is still up for question. In the meantime, the 2019 Pixel 3a is still sitting tight in a quickly emptying field of decent midrange phones with excellent cameras. When it launched, it was a tremendous value at $399 and even gained our smartphone of the year award, but discounts have made its appeal even more undeniable. Today, it has dropped to its lowest ever price: $279 for the 3a and $319 for the 3aXL.
