Suggested March 2024 Huawei P40 Vs Pro Vs Pro+: What’s The Difference?

P40 series of smartphones, but with three different models to choose from at different prices, specs and features it’s probably hard to know which is the best one for you.

Well don’t worry because here we’re going to compare the three P40 phones across key areas highlighting the differences so you can buy the right one. We won’t be going into every tiny bit of detail to avoid this turning into a lengthy essay, but rather looking at what will be most important when deciding on a P40.

We’ve been briefed ahead of the launch but Huawei likes to keep things like the prices until the presentation so we’ll add this when we can. For now let’s look at how the P40, P40 Pro and P40+ compare when it comes to things like cameras, screens and more. 

See what we think in our Huawei P40 review and how the

P40 Cameras

Let’s kick off with the most important comparison, since the camera tech you get is different across all three phones.

There’s one camera that all three P40 phones get which is 50Mp ‘Ultra Vision Wide Lens’. The P40 then comes with a 16Mp ultra wide angle camera and an 8Mp telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom.

The Pro Pro swaps those two additional cameras for a 40Mp ultra wide angle ‘cine lens’ and a 12Mp 5x Optical Periscope Telephoto lens. Then there’s a time of flight (ToF) sensor, too.

The Huawei P40 Pro+ camera module

Finally, the P40 Pro+ has the same 50- and 40Mp cameras, joined by an 8Mp 3x Optical Telephoto, 8Mp 10x Optical Super Periscope Telephoto and the ToF sensor.

Here’s a more detailed look at each phone’s rear camera array

When it comes to the front facing camera, all the P40 models have a 32Mp sensor but the Pro models have autofocus and Depth IR, in part for improved facial recognition.

We think photographers should buy the P40 Pro+. Here are some more photography details for the P40 phones:

P40 Screens

As is typical, the regular P40 has a smaller screen at 6.1in. It also has a slightly shorter aspect ratio and resolution at 19.5:9 2340×1080.

Getting a Pro or Pro+ gets you a larger 6.58in display and a taller 19.8:9 aspect ratio. The resolution is then higher at 2640×1200.

The regular Huawei P40 screen

All three phones have OLED technology with a punch-hole camera arrangement at the top-left but the ‘overflow display’ – where it curves over the edges – is limited to the Pro models.

Then there’s also the fact that Pro/+ gets you a 90Hz refresh rate where the regular P40 is lower at 60Hz. The Pros certainly have the better display then if you are ok with the larger size.

P40 Battery life & Charging

This is another area where the regular P40 lags behind the Pro models as it has a smaller 3800mAh battery and both wired charging is limited to 22.5W. The phone doesn’t have wireless charging.

Meanwhile, getting either the Pro or the Pro+ bumps you to 4200mAh and both wired and wireless charging is able to supply up to 40W and the adapter is supplied in the box. Note that the Pro is limited to 27W on wireless.

P40 Colours & Waterproofing

This might not be as important as the things above but will still be critical to some people’s buying decision.

The P40 comes in a range of colours, depending on where you live, including Ice White, Black, DeepSea Blue, Silver Frost and Blush Gold.

Although most flagship phones come with top waterproofing, the P40 is a little lower at IP53 (dust protected but not tight, and able to cope with spraying water). Meanwhile the Pro models are fully dust and waterproof at IP68.

P40 Common Specs

To finish things off, here’s a list of specs that all the P40 models share:

Kirin 990 processor

Wi-Fi 6





In-screen fingerprint scanner


P40 Price & Availability

The P40 and P40 Pro will be available from 7 April, while the Pro+ will be released later in June. Here are the details for the prices along with the memory and storage you get.

Which P40 should I buy?

Taking an objective look at the phones, the regular P40 isn’t overly attractive due to all the specs and features that it doesn’t get.

Namely a fancier screen, additional photography skills, wireless charging and faster wired charging. However, those wanting a smaller size and wanting to spend less will need to opt for it.

Chossing between the Pro models is harder since they are pretty similar across the board. We’d say the P40 Pro is the sweet spot unless you really want the ceramic finish of the Pro+, extra storage and will make use of its superior cameras.

Iphone 14 Pro Vs Iphone 13 Pro: What’s New?

Apple yesterday released the new iPhone 14 Pro, and though it looks almost exactly identical to the iPhone 13 Pro (at least from the back), there are some huge upgrades all around the device. In fact, the iPhone 14 Pro might just be the most exciting iPhone in a long time. So, if you’re wondering whether the new smartphone is worth the $999 asking price, here is a detailed comparison between the iPhone 13 Pro vs iPhone 12 Pro.

iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Compared

We’ve compared the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro across a variety of categories, including the design, specs, cameras, and the user interface elements (you’ll see why). As always, you can use the table of contents below to navigate around this article.

iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone 13 Pro: Quick Specs Comparison Design

Starting off with the design, the iPhone 14 Pro carries forward the same rear design as the iPhone 13 Pro. You get the same frosted matte finish on the rear glass, and a glossy finish around the camera module, along with the stainless steel frame that looks good, but is a fingerprint magnet.

There are three cameras on the rear on both the phones, although this year, Apple has upgraded the primary camera to a 48MP shooter. The camera bump is bigger as well.

There’s still the same Lightning port at the bottom, along with the speaker and microphone grilles. Button placement remains the same, and there are no surprises with the power button, volume buttons, or the alert slider. It’s all exactly the same as the previous iPhones.


The display of the iPhone 14 Pro is fairly similar to the iPhone 13 Pro as well, with only some very minor differences as far as the hardware itself goes. You get the same 6.1-inch screen on both phones (6.7-inch if you get the Pro Max models), and the pixel density remains the same at 460 ppi. Although the resolution of the two phones are different, due to the slightly larger screen on the 14 Pro.

The difference between the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro is noticeable in the brightness levels of the screen. While the iPhone 13 Pro supported a typical display brightness of 1000 nits and an HDR brightness of 1200 nits, the iPhone 14 Pro has an HDR brightness of 1600 nits. Moreover, the iPhone 14 Pro display can go up to 2000 nits in outdoor conditions for better visibility.

Both displays support the 120Hz ProMotion technology. However, the iPhone 14 Pro uses a new LTPO panel, which allows the display to run as low as 1Hz, thereby enabling the long awaited Always on Display feature as well. The new phone will dim the screen and lower the refresh rate down to 1Hz to ensure that you can see notifications and the time without waking the phone completely. Apple also says that the AOD on the iPhone 14 Pro will work with live notifications as well, so if you have a timer running or the score of a game on your lock screen, it will continue updating in real time.

Performance Differences between iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro

The A16 Bionic has a 6 core CPU, with the same set up as the A15 Bionic. There are 2 high-performance cores and 4 high-efficiency cores to go with them. Alongside this is a 5 core GPU to power all the graphical needs of the iPhone 14 Pro. There’s also a 16-core Neural Engine that enables features such as the new Photonic engine for better photography, and other machine learning and AI features on the iPhone.

Apart from these (and the ISP), the A16 Bionic also has a Display Engine that enables features like the 1Hz refresh rate for the Always On Display, the higher (2000 nits) brightness, and even the anti-aliasing and other animations that run all through the system, and especially on the Dynamic Island.

Though we are yet to see the real-world performance of the new A16 Bionic, it’s a safe bet that it will be one of the fastest smartphone processors, and should be considerably better than the A15 Bionic that it replaces. That said, it must be noted that the A15 Bionic is no slouch by any stretch of the imagination, and it will be a solid smartphone chipset for a few more years to come.

iPhone 14 Pro’s Dynamic Island

We’ve been talking about it all through this article, so what is Dynamic Island after all? Well, thanks to the new pill + hole cut out in the iPhone 14 Pro’s display, Apple has come up with a whole new set of UI elements and user interactions that make the iPhone appear a lot more intuitive, user-friendly, and in my opinion, makes the pill not only acceptable, but downright desirable.

What’s more, the Dynamic Island will allow users to tap and hold to access a quick widget of sorts to control the app that’s running in the island. This means you can easily control things like music, podcasts, timers, etc., without having to leave the app you’re working in. The Dynamic Island takes different shapes depending on the information being displayed in it.

It also appears to replace pop-downs such as the ones that come when you move the alert slider, connect AirPods, etc. These prompts will now show up in the Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro, which should make them feel less intrusive than they are right now.


Moving on to the cameras, the iPhone 14 Pro brings improvements on this front as well. The primary camera set up in the new iPhone features a 48MP main camera, paired with a 12MP + 12MP ultra wide and telephoto lens. This 48MP main camera does quad-pixel binning, so by default you’ll get 12MP photos, but it will capture more light. Also, the phone uses a crop of the same sensor to get a 2x zoom option as well.

On the other hand, the iPhone 13 Pro featured a 12MP triple rear camera set up, and no 2x zoom button (though you could digitally zoom in with the zoom dial).

Dual SIM and eSIM

iPhones have had dual SIM support for a while, with a nano SIM + eSIM configuration in most countries. However, with the iPhone 14 Pro, Apple is removing the SIM tray from US models of the iPhone. This means that US customers will only be able to use an eSIM in the iPhone 14 Pro.

The iPhone 13 Pro, on the other hand, had a SIM tray which could hold a nano SIM card, and support for an additional eSIM as well.


The iPhone 14 Pro has been launched at $999 for the base 128GB variant, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max is priced at $1099 for the base 128GB variant. This is good, because Apple has kept the pricing for the new iPhones the same as last year, even though there were some rumours that the price of the new iPhone 14 Pro might go up by a slight margin.

In India, the iPhone 14 Pro is priced at Rs. 1,29,900 while the iPhone 14 Pro Max is priced at Rs. 1,39,900. The iPhone 13 Pro last year, was launched in India at Rs. 1,19,900 while the iPhone 13 Pro Max was launched at Rs. 1,29,900.

iPhone 14 Pro: Should You Upgrade?

On the other hand, if you’re using an older iPhone, like I am (iPhone XR), upgrading to the iPhone 14 Pro might very well be a no brainer for you. After all, you will get a much faster processor, hugely improved cameras, a better display with higher brightness and ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate.

iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone 13 Pro: Which One Will You Pick?

Huawei P20 Vs P20 Pro: Do You Need The Triple Camera?

Virtually identical specs

Starting with the display, there’s a 6.1-inch panel in the Pro model and a slightly smaller 5.8-inch display in the regular P20. Both feature the contentious notch and a FullHD+ (2244 x 1080) resolution with an 18.7:9 aspect ratio. In terms of sharpness, the viewing experience is pretty much the same, clocking in at a PPI of 408 and 429 respectively. However, the two phones utilize different display technologies — AMOLED for the Pro and LCD for the smaller variant.

Side by side, the AMOLED panel has a slightly greener tint, which is typical of OLED display types, while the P20’s LCD panel appears a little less blue. In terms of vibrancy and colors, both look perfectly good to the naked eye and there’s very little difference between them. It’s only once we run the two panels through our testing suite that we begin to see a notable difference. The AMOLED panel offers up a higher peak brightness at 527 nits, versus the LCD’s 459, making it better for outdoor viewing. AMOLED technology also boasts essentially an infinite contrast ratio, we clocked it at around 10,370:1, compared to just 627:1 for the LCD variant.

HUAWEI P20 Pro default Vivid profile

Switching over to the Normal profile generally worsens the color results. The AMOLED panel’s average deltaE increased to 5.9 and its max hit 10.1. The P20’s LCD panel did better, with just a 3.8 average deltaE. Its 8.6 max deltaE was due to some poor reds. However, in this mode, both phones exhibited much better white points, suggesting a tradeoff between stretching for a wider, more vibrant color gamut and maintaining white accuracy.

HUAWEI P20 Normal profile

HUAWEI P20 Pro Normal profile

Overall, the two panels are incredibly close. HUAWEI has clearly gone to some lengths to calibrate the two. The AMOLED panel is slightly more saturated and offers better peak brightness and contrast ratios, as we’ve come to expect from the technology. The LCD panel isn’t any better or worse at color reproduction. Both are about equally inaccurate compared to the industry-leading Galaxy S9, just in slightly different ways. If you’re after the technically most accurate display out of either of the two models, the regular P20’s LCD panel set to Normal mode is slightly better. I honestly wouldn’t worry about it, though.

The AMOLED and LCD panels show only small differences in color and are surprisingly similar to the naked eye.

As has become the norm with regular and plus sized variations, the HUAWEI P20 and P20 Pro pack in the same processing package: the HiSilicon Kirin 970. They’ve got the same high-end CPU and graphics performance, as well machine learning perks using the chip’s dedicated NPU. We benchmarked the chipset and found it marginally outperforms existing Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 powered handsets, but isn’t quite as fast as newer handsets with the Snapdragon 845 like the Galaxy S9. Even so, you can expect top-tier performance with both models.

The phones differ slightly with RAM. The P20 Pro has a larger 6GB pool of LPDDR4 compared to the smaller model’s 4GB configuration. However, both of these amounts are more than big enough for stutter-free multitasking, so this certainly shouldn’t be a deciding factor in your purchasing decision. Both phones also come with 128GB of internal storage, large enough for a major portable music and video collection. Neither have a microSD card slot for expanding storage which is a disappointment.

Maximum megapixels

Pixel peeping isn’t going to be the easiest here, as we’re looking at images at 10, 12, 20, and 40 megapixels from each possible camera configuration, so frames aren’t going to line-up exactly. That said, we took a look at the 100 percent crops to see how much detail they offered and also to show the whole frame (compressed here but look Drive for the full image) to look at color and white balance.

Low light proves a very different game. The P20 Pro performed surprisingly well, while the P20 struggled to even focus on anything but the background wall. There’s a lot more noise in this low light environment for both phones than in the first gallery, but the P20 Pro does a much better at exposing the image and capturing enough light. Compare this to the Pro’s 40MP shot, which is incredibly noisy. The 40-to-10-megapixel pixel binning employed in this camera clearly works wonders in dark shots. The regular P20’s 20MP mode isn’t as noisy, as it uses the monochrome sensor, but the color balance takes a notable red hue compared to the standard shot and it is even more underexposed.

Pixel binning helps the P20 Pro’s 10MP camera capture more light and detail.

I’ve also included samples from Huawei’s Night Mode, which captures multiple images at different exposures to create a low-noise nighttime image. There’s a clear improvement for both cameras when using this mode, so I’d certainly recommend using it when shooting at night. Again the P20 Pro offers the better exposure, lower noise, and superior color balance. If you look at the full picture, you’d be forgiven for thinking I cheated and switched the light on (don’t worry I didn’t).

2x zoom compared

Given the curious look of the HUAWEI P20’s 20MP shot, it’s worth comparing the native shot to the handset’s 2x lossless zoom effect to compare the quality. I’ve used a favorite example of mine, the record player, as we can compare groove details, noise, and the text to see how the zoom effect alters the picture. For this comparison, I scaled up the un-zoomed pictures in post to compare to the 2x zoom for both handsets. There’s a lot to look at here!

There’s very little, if any difference, between the regular P20’s 12MP and 20MP cropped images when we digitally zoom into 2x in post. It likely goes back to the same reason as the so-so quality in our first gallery looking at the 20MP shooting option — the color detail is only ever resolved at 12MP, so zooming in on the two shots produces very similar looking results. By comparison, there’s a lot less pixelation when we digitally zoom in on the P20 Pro’s 40MP image compared with the 10MP shot.

Comparing the 2x hybrid zoom shots from the P20 and P20 Pro again reveals some interesting differences between the cameras. The algorithm results in almost identical color balance, detail retention, and lack of pixelation when compared to the digital zoom, suggesting that it’s the same super-resolution technique being applied on both handsets. However, the superior noise performance of the P20 Pro’s pixel binned 10MP image produces a notably cleaner presentation than the regular P20 at both 1x and 2x.

Huawei’s 2x hybrid zoom can’t keep pace with a cropped 40MP landscape shot from the Pro.

Overall at 2x there isn’t a lot to tell between the two in terms of zoom capabilities. Both employ some interesting software that looks better than a regular digital zoom. I’d hesitate to call it anything close to lossless, as the quality varies substantially depending on the textures of the scene.

There are some more noticeable exposure, color, and noise differences between the two. The P20 Pro consistently provides a cleaner presentation when pixel peeping. The addition of the Pro’s 40MP shooting option also bests the company’s own software in some situations, making it by far the better choice for those who can master the flexibility.

Pixel peeping at 5x zoom

When it comes to 5x zoom we should expect the P20 Pro to pull away more meaningfully, given its telephoto lens and OIS capabilities.

Router Mode Vs Bridge Mode – What’s The Difference

You’ve probably seen the setting that lets you choose whether to run the device as a bridge or a router while navigating through the network configurations. The purpose for both of these modes is the same, i.e, to offer network connectivity over a larger coverage area. 

However, some minor technical intricacies make these two modes totally different in how they operate. In this context, we’ll compare these two networking modes today and recommend the best option to get the most out of your internet experience.

In router mode, IPs of devices connected are stored in tables and most viable route is selected to transfer data. The IPs can be given dynamically by the device or defined by user.

A router is involved in receiving the packets with the destination address attached to them and, forwards the packets to the receiver in the most convenient route. This process of forwarding the data is called dynamic routing.

It connects the LAN with the WAN. The router Converts an IP from one class to another using a process called Network Address Translation (NAT). 

Router Mode is just to make the networking device function as a Router. Generally, the Modem/Router combo offered by the ISPs is, by default, set to the Router mode. However, if you use multiple routers for Wi-Fi range expansion, a private set of IPs created by the router generates conflict and can cause issues on the network. This is what is known as the Double NAT.

Router Mode

The router mode also supports multiple authentication methods, making it a more flexible option while setting up a connection. 


Ideal for connecting  Remote Networks

Brings the benefits of NAT

Enables more security Layers

Supports Multiple connection types (Dynamic IP/Static IP/PPPoE)


Dynamic Routing can consume Bandwidth

Double NAT becomes imminent when multiple devices are connected in router mode

Bridges use source and destination MAC before forwarding packets, contributing to less network congestion. Bridging essentially is the process of connecting two networks and making them function as one.

Now, getting into Bridge mode, is a setting that can be configured to make networking devices work simultaneously and extend the port access to a wider area. This configuration will disable the Network Access Translation (NAT) on one of the routers and turn it into a layer 2 device (On OSI) and extends the LAN. 

Bridge Mode

With the IP assigning or NAT turned off, the router will not work as a DHCP server, which reduces the IP address conversion time. This can also be said as the latency of transferring the data between two points is relatively faster because of reduced data hops. 

Traceroute Command

Enabling the bridge mode on a primary networking device will take away the routing capability from the device, if present. Configuring a device to work on the bridge mode renders the WAN port useless since the device is typically non-existent apart from extending the primary connection.


Extends network coverage over a larger area

Negates the possibility of Double NAT

Can work Between Firewalls

Offers high network reliability


Service providers might not support the device

Cannot Configure Source or Destination NAT 

Limited IP pools and devices

From an OSI model perspective, the router is a Level three device that performs the routing of traffic in an extended network. Routers are referred to as the network’s gateway as they forward the packets from one network to another. This is the normal modus operandi when a networking device is set to run on a Router mode. 

Router With OSI Layer

A bridge is a network framework segregating the LAN into segments and dividing the traffic into those segments. On an OSI Model, it works on the Data Link layer. Bridges are used to overcome the limitations of the bus topology by reducing network traffic and limiting bandwidth usage. Thus, enabling the Bridge mode does this function by converting the networking device into a bridge. 

Bridge with OSI Layer

Getting into other differences between these two modes, we can find some major divergences in their performance, security, usage, and specialization. 

When it comes to the packet transfer process, a router mode works efficiently by directing them to just the necessary destination. This helps in reducing traffic and boosts the overall performance of the network. However, Bridge mode provides flexibility to connect many devices, extend the range of the Network and improve the network speed. 

When two routers are connected to each other, there is the possibility of Double NAT in the routing mode. The issue can become prominent while using VoIP service or port forwarding rules. 

The main purpose of the bridge mode is not to function as a security layer  but to reduce traffic using segmentation. To make things simple, if you are planning to use bridge mode for a home network, it provides equal amount of security as a router.

On the other hand, since routers are primarily used to connect two remote devices or networks, routers can help to create a secure network. Under router mode, different security protocols are adopted, including encryption, to secure the data. This makes the router safer than using it as a bridge.

If a networking device is operating on a bridge mode, it will not have the routing capabilities and can be used to extend the range of  LANs. And hence, the bridge mode is seen as easier to operate for LANs. 

Router mode is required when you need to move back and forth between multiple networks. For instance, between your ISP and your home network. Also, a router mode enabled in a networking device can distribute a single wired Internet connection to multiple clients. These are the reasons for the router mode being suitable for both LAN and WAN environments. 

Enabling bridge mode can be useful in those places where the number of devices trying to connect to the network is large and network coverage needs expansion. 

The Routers support a limited number of devices connected at a time and also do not cater to the requirement of wider network coverage. Thus, router mode is suitable for home use. 

Except for the fact that both are router/modem configurations, there are only a few similarities between Bridge mode and Router mode. However, when viewed closely, both of these modes of networking can be used to extend network connectivity. 

Users can extend the existing network without using the NAT feature while using Bridge mode. Network range extensions are possible while in router mode, but IP address conflicts also can arise with it.

Bridge Mode helps you to utilize the networking devices you have to extend the network coverage across a larger area. If you are setting a Mesh system, you must operate your primary networking device on bridge mode.

As already discussed, having the bridge mode on eliminates the possibility of Double NAT. If any network-based activity you are performing is getting affected by Double NAT, you can try using this mode on your router. Operating on Bridge mode also can be a good option if the device provided by your ISP lacks wireless strength. 

For an average home user, running on the Router mode is relatively easy and caters all the home requirements. If you have multiple networks, you can use the router mode to separate them by creating multiple SSIDs. On a home network, you can also operate the primary networking device on a Router mode and connect a spare router as an extender. 

After all of the discussion, here is a quick summary of the major differences between Router Mode and Bridge Mode. 

Netflix Usa Vs Netflix India – What’s The Difference?

When this content streaming giant started out in the 90s, it has a simple and effective selling point to deliver premium entertainment directly to home users. Thanks to the infinitely rapid spread of the internet in the past decade, Netflix was able to take its model not just online across the United States, but open its wings and go international. Spanning across the entire world except for Syria, North Korea, and Crimea due to US sanctions, Netflix has become synonymous with premium online entertainment.

Despite the service being a worldwide phenomenon, the amount of content available across the service is region-specific. You’ve already seen true Netflix fans discuss the possibility of unlocking Netflix USA in India, and there’s a good reason to do so. Let’s find out what makes Netflix USA and Netflix India so different in the first place.

Related: Netflix vs Hotstar vs Amazon Prime

While it is almost impossible to put the content of Netflix under a microscope with thousands of movies and TV shows, there is some number-crunching we can do. To start off with movie titles, the Netflix movies library in the United States consists of 4500+ movies at an average, with the number growing and even declining sometimes.

The catalog of Netflix movies for the Indian region is restricted to just 500+ movies in comparison to the massive catalog of Netflix USA. There are multiple reasons for this, which includes copyright and language restrictions, content exclusivity and others. But you have to take into account what Netflix India offers that Netflix USA simply doesn’t.

Best streaming services in India

Thanks to its in-house production of Netflix Original content, the entertainment streaming service rules the chart with 1150+ TV shows on the Netflix USA roster at the moment. In comparison, you would expect an equal amount of TV shows to be available on Netflix India, since there aren’t too many regional TV shows available, with the exception of some Pakistani soap dramas of course.

However, there is also a stark difference in the number of Netflix USA TV shows that are available for viewing in India, with the figure being just around 530+ at the moment. This means that as a Netflix India user, you miss out on some of the best TV shows of all time like F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Modern Family, The Flash and many others.

Price: Netflix USA = Netflix India

Considering the massive currency divide between the two nations, you’d expect the streaming service subscription to be cheaper in India, especially when you look at the difference in the content library. With the Netflix USA Standard subscription costing $7.99 and the same on the Indian Netflix platform costing 500 INR (approximately $7.70), there isn’t much of a price gap between the two.

Winner: Netflix USA

As a Netflix user in India, users hoped to enjoy the best of western entertainment with top Netflix Original movies and TV shows at a fairly premium price. While it is quite pleasant that Netflix is keen on offering regional-specific content to woo the local viewership, it comes as a sacrifice of thousands of movies and TV shows that are offered on Netflix USA. Though, there is a trick to let you watch Neflix USA content from India.

On average, Netflix India has less than 12% of the streaming content available on Netflix USA, despite costing almost the same. Since this ratio isn’t going to change anytime soon, it might be time to take things into your hands and fire up a VPN to unblock Netflix USA through your Netflix India subscription.

Pixel 4A 5G Vs Pixel 5: What’s The Difference?

Google took the wraps off its newest Pixel smartphones, the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, at its hardware event earlier this week. These are the company’s first-ever 5G phones and bring along a major shift in Google’s hardware strategy. It hasn’t really unveiled a true $1,000 flagship smartphone with Pixel 5. Instead, it’s closer to the Pixel 4a 5G in terms of both design and internal specifications.

Pixel 4a 5G vs Pixel 5: Features


Starting off with the design, both the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 look identical on the front and the rear. It will not be easy to discern between the phones because they both have a square camera module and a fingerprint sensor on the rear, and a punch-hole cutout at the top left on the front. A dead giveaway will, however, be the presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack (just look at the top edge) aboard the Pixel 4a 5G.

If it wasn’t for the different finishes and colorways, it would be a little difficult to tell the two apart from each other. It should not really matter though as both the phones don’t only look the same but share a lot of hardware similarities as well.


Moving to the display, it is essentially the same for both phones but with really minor differences here and there. The Pixel 4a 5G features a slightly bigger 6.2-inch Full-HD+ (2340 x 1080) OLED display as compared to the 6-inch FHD+ OLED panel aboard the Pixel 5. The bezels around the display are minimal, even the bottom chin that’s usually a little thicker.

A major differentiating factor between the two phones has to be the refresh rate. The Pixel 5’s display boasts a high 90Hz refresh rate as opposed to the standard 60Hz refresh rate of the Pixel 4a 5G. Also, Pixel 5 has Gorilla Glass 6 protection on the front in comparison to Gorilla Glass 3 protection aboard the Pixel 4a 5G.


Google Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 are Google’s first-ever 5G-enabled phones. While it was initially rumored that the Pixel 4a might be powered by the Snapdragon 690 SoC, both the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G are backed by the same Snapdragon 765G chipset under the hood. It’s the same chipset found aboard the OnePlus Nord.

Both the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 arrive with 5G connectivity support out-of-the-box. If you are wondering, do they support both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G networks? The answer is yes but it differs with carrier availability and region. Verizon is even selling a Pixel 4a 5G UW for $599 to offer mmWave support to users.

Pixel 5 is no longer a true flagship with a flagship Snapdragon 800-series in tow. It is, instead, an attractive sub-$1,000 flagship with a 90Hz display, stellar cameras, and 5G support.

The only difference between the two phones under the hood is that the Pixel 4a 5G will come with 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM as opposed to 8GB RAM aboard the Pixel 5. Both of the phones include 128GB built-in storage, which is not expandable. The Pixel Neural Core chip is missing in action (and does not result in any lack of features) but the Titan M security chip is still present onboard.


Apart from the processor, Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 also feature the exact same camera system. You will find a square cutout with a 12.2MP (f/1.7) primary camera and a 16MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide camera with a 107-degree FOV on the rear. It’s great that Google finally listened to the feedback and swapped out the telephoto camera for an ultra-wide one.

The punch-hole cutout aboard both the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G have an 8MP (f/2.0) selfie camera with a wider 84-degree FOV. The phones also support the exact same camera features, including Live HDR+, Night Sight, Night Portrait (read more about this feature right here), Portrait Light, Cinematic Pan, and more.


Google has also decided to address another major issue, i.e appalling battery life, with its previous-gen flagship phone. Pixel 5 sports a huge 4,080mAh battery as compared to the measly 2,800mAh battery aboard the Pixel 4. The new Pixel 4a 5G, on the other hand, comes equipped with a 3,885mAh battery — bigger than the 3,140mAh battery pack of the standard Pixel 4a.

Wireless Charging

The mid-range Pixel 4a 5G does not support it but the flagship Pixel 5 does come with both wireless charging, as well as reverse wireless charging, support. This means you can use a Pixel 5 to charge your smartwatch or TWS earbuds on the move. Pixel 5 supports up to 12W Qi wireless charging, as per its official listing.

But wait, doesn’t the Pixel 5 has an aluminum rear panel? How does it support wireless charging then? Well, Google has made an innovative design choice and carved a hole in the aluminum chassis to fit in the wireless charging coil. You can read all about it right here.

Water Resistance

As you might guess, it’s the Pixel 5 that supports IP68 water and dust resistance. The Pixel 4a 5G does not carry an official IP rating but it does include a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is missing from the Pixel 5. This is good news for many users and so is the dual stereo sound experience.

Pixel 4a 5G vs Pixel 5: Which One Would You Buy?

The choice should be simple. If you are simply looking for a 5G-enabled smartphone with Google’s version of Android and some amazing cameras, then go for the Pixel 4a 5G for an attractive price of $499. It’s the go-to device for users who don’t care about an IP rating or wireless charging.

If you are someone who wants a more premium build, a high refresh rate display, and water resistance among other things, then be ready to shell out an additional $200 for the Pixel 5. It has been priced at $699 in the US. Also, do not expect to get your hands on either of the two in India as Google doesn’t plan on launching them here.
