Our Google Pixel 8a battery life test is ready

The Pixel 8a is powered by a 4,492mAh battery, a hair smaller capacity than the Pixel 8’s 4,575mAh cell. It also features a smaller display with a 6.1-inch diagonal instead of 6.2”.

And since the two phones use an identical chipset, it’s no surprise the Pixel 8a scored a similar Active Use Score as the original Pixel 8 – 11 hours and 25 minutes. It offers 23 hours of call time, over 10 hours of web browsing, over 13 hours of video streaming and over 7 hours of gaming. Not bad for a compact phone.

Still, there are quite a few other similarly sized competitors that post better Active Use scores – at least 13 hours or more.

Stay tuned for the full review where we take a deeper dive into the other aspects of the handset.
