What you need to know
- Google's Pixel 3a device is the best selling unlocked smartphone on Amazon in the U.S.
- It beat out other smartphones from companies like Samsung, BLU, and Apple.
- This proves that Google made the right choice by moving into the mid-range smartphone market.
Google's smartphone fortunes appear to be changing with the new Pixel 3a. Its new price friendly smartphone has now become the best selling unlocked phone on Amazon in the U.S.
That is a major breakthrough for Google, which has continually struggled to break through with its Pixel line of smartphones. Be it their limited availability (it was only offered through one major carrier) or their expensive price tag ($700-plus), previous Pixel devices never quite convinced consumers to shun iPhone or Galaxy devices.
However, Google went with a different approach with the Pixel 3a and offer a device that came in at under $500. The move was a stroke of genius as the Pixel line is beginning to pick up some traction. For as great as smartphones are nowadays, people are looking for more value given how prices have skyrocketed over the past couple of years.
It seems Google wasn't the only manufacturer to get the memo, though. Samsung comes in a second place with its Galaxy A10. Rounding out the top of is the BLU Studio Mega, iPhone 6, and BLU Advance A4.
We'll see how the Pixel 3a holds up as the novelty wears off, but something tells us it's here to stay. Google has a major hit on its hands. It would be wise of the company to keep it going moving forward.
