Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro vs older Google phones: Should you upgrade? - Android Authority
Oct 24, 2021 1 min, 58 secs

Google made the jump to flagship pricing with the first Pixel back in 2016.

Google also changes its strategy last year with the Pixel 5, which was a premium mid-ranger more than a true flagship.

However, Google is back in the high-end territory this year with the latest Pixel 6 series.

Other flagships were priced similarly, so the Pixel 3 series pricing wasn’t too surprising, though.

As far as an upgrade is concerned, you could potentially hold off for another year if you have the Pixel 3 or 3 XL!

And in case you own an even older Google phone like the Pixel 2 or the original Pixel, an upgrade is obviously a no-brainer.

The Pixel 3a series was a response to the outrage surrounding the high price points of the Pixel 3 series.

However, the phones kept the best feature of the Pixel 3 series — the excellent camera — and the software experience remained the same across the board.

The Pixel 3a series is a couple of years old, and mid-rangers tend to struggle sooner than high-end devices.

However, the Pixel 6 series goes back into flagship pricing territory as well?

The Pixel 4 and 4 XL have a lot of issues, particularly when it comes to battery life.

The Pixel 4a 5G followed and brought 5G support with it, as the name suggests.

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are flagship smartphones, so it’s no surprise that they are better than the 4a series.

Instead of a true flagship, the Pixel 5 was a premium mid-ranger.

The Pixel 6 is $100 cheaper than the Pixel 5 at launch and has a few similarities like a 90Hz display refresh rate, wireless charging, and water resistance.

The Pixel 6 Pro brings even more to the table and is definitely a significant upgrade over the Pixel 5.

However, when it comes to whether you should upgrade, the Pixel 5 is a recent release, so it’s probably too soon.

The Pixel 5a is quite similar to the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 and essentially replaces them.

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are by far the better phones.

The new Tensor chip offers better performance, and the phones come with higher display refresh rates (90Hz for the Pixel 6 and 120Hz for the Pixel 6 Pro), water resistance, more RAM, and wireless charging.

That said, if you have a Pixel 5a, you bought in the last couple of months, so you likely aren’t looking for an upgrade anyway.
