Samsung Galaxy A54 vs Google Pixel 7a

Looking ahead is necessary for a comparison between the Samsung Galaxy A54 and Google Pixel 7a. While the Pixel 7a hasn’t even been announced, Samsung is already accepting pre-orders for its new midrange phone. However, we anticipate that will soon change.

On May 10, Google I/O 2023 will be held, and in the past, Google has debuted its most recent A Series phones there. With Google showcasing the Pixel 7a and how it incorporates some of the best Pixel 7 features into a less expensive device, you’d think that history would repeat itself.

The Galaxy A54 will be ready for the Pixel 7a when it finally shows up. In their competition to be the best budget phone of the year, Samsung’s midrange Galaxy A lineup’s top model offers processor and camera upgrades that should make it a strong rival to the Pixel 7a.

Based on rumors about Google’s upcoming phone, our comparison of the Samsung Galaxy A54 and Google Pixel 7a requires some educated guesswork. However, there are enough rumors floating around that we can reasonably predict how this competition for low-cost smartphones will pan out.

Price and Availability:

Before the phone’s release on April 6, the Galaxy A54 is currently accepting preorders. The Galaxy A54 is available for $449/£449; preorder discounts can sometimes be combined with add-ons like discounted Galaxy Buds Live earbuds to further reduce the price.

Although we don’t know the exact price, we assume Google will work to keep the Pixel 7a’s price close to the $449 it charges for the Pixel 6a. Even if component costs and new features cause the Pixel 7a price to increase, we believe Google will keep it below $500, if only to differentiate it from the $599 Pixel 7.

Google I/O 2023 on May 10 is likely to feature a sneak peek of the Pixel 7a. The new phone would then go on sale sometime in the summer if Google follows the Pixel 6a’s launch schedule.

Design:

Even though Samsung phones are beginning to resemble one another, the Galaxy A54 benefits from this. A vertical row of cameras descends down the back of the Galaxy A54, much like the recently unveiled Galaxy S23 lineup. In fact, it would be difficult to tell the difference between an S23 and an A54 from a distance; however, once you hold the either device, the differences are more obvious. Additionally, the less durable Victus 2 is substituted by less expensive materials like Gorilla Glass 5 in the Galaxy A54.

We anticipate that the Pixel 7a will resemble its more expensive sibling quite a bit. After all, the Pixel 6a essentially copied the design of the Pixel 6, right down to the horizontal camera bar that runs the length of the phone’s back. That should return with the Pixel 7a, though we anticipate the new entry-level phone won’t make use of the matte-finish camera bar’s matte aluminum material.

Display:

If the Pixel 7a rumors are accurate, the Galaxy A54 should have a larger screen. Samsung’s device has a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, while the Pixel 7a is expected to have the same 6.1-inch OLED display as the 6a from a year ago.

Although you must access Settings to turn on this feature, the Galaxy A54 display has the ability to ramp up to a 120Hz refresh rate. The Pixel 7a could take a different path from the Pixel 6a, which had a more traditional 60Hz refresh rate. An alleged phone prototype showed a setting for a refresh rate of 90Hz.

As a result, the Galaxy A54 would still be capable of a faster refresh rate than the Pixel 7a, resulting in smoother scrolling and more lifelike graphics. However, Google’s newest phone would at least provide users with a faster refresh rate than before.

Cameras:

The Pixel 6a proved to be the best camera phone available for less than $500, demonstrating that Google’s usual advantage in cameras extends to its budget lineup. Samsung is unleashing its heavy artillery to compete with the Galaxy A54.

The Galaxy A54 will have the same 50MP sensor as the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus, specifically. This is significant because, when comparing photos taken with the Galaxy S23 and those taken with the Pixel 7, we found that Samsung’s work was generally superior. The Pixel 7a will have a tough rival if the Galaxy A54 offers the same image quality.

The 12MP ultrawide lens and the 5MP macro sensor are the other cameras on the Galaxy A54, in addition to the 50MP primary camera. You get a 32MP selfie camera up front.

Little rumors have been spread about the Pixel 7a cameras. The budget phone’s main and ultrawide cameras will most likely each have a 12MP sensor, which is the most likely scenario. However, there is a chance that the Pixel 7a’s primary camera will receive an upgraded 12MP sensor.

Performances:

Performance is another area where Samsung has been compelled to improve, as the Tensor in the Pixel 6a from last year outperformed the Exynos 1280 chip powering the Galaxy A53 in benchmark tests. That’s pretty embarrassing for Samsung considering Google’s Tensor chips are more well-known for their machine learning-fueled capabilities than their performance.

Samsung is using an updated Exynos 1380 chipset for the Galaxy A54, which should provide better performance than the previous model. In particular, Samsung claims a 20% CPU improvement and a 26% GPU improvement over the Exynos 1280.

However, Google is unlikely to remain silent about its low-cost phone. The same Tensor G2 silicon that powers the Pixel 7 should also power the Pixel 7a. The G2 is a little bit quicker than the original Tensor chipset, but once more, we’re not talking about a performance powerhouse.

The U.S. version of the Galaxy A54 comes with 128GB of storage, but you can increase the amount with a microSD card to 1TB. The Pixel 7a will likely only come in a single 128GB model without expandable storage if it follows the Pixel 6a’s lead.

Battery and Charger:

The Pixel 7a must significantly outperform the Pixel 6a’s mediocre 6.5-hour score on our battery test. (The typical smartphone uses 10 hours or less.) However, the 4,410 mAh battery that powered the Pixel 6a won’t see much of an increase in capacity, so perhaps the Tensor G2 can operate more effectively.

The Galaxy A54 has a 5.000 mAh battery, just like the Galaxy A53. If Google doesn’t spring a surprise on us, we’d assume that means the A54 will last longer than the Pixel 7a, though we’ll need to conduct battery tests to be certain.

Phones in this price range rarely have wireless charging. Neither the Pixel 6a nor the Galaxy A54 provided it. However, a rumor suggests that Google might give the Pixel 7a that feature.

Software:

The Pixel 7a, which runs Android 13 on both devices, will probably try to stand out with the AI-driven features made possible by its Tensor G2 silicon. Expect the Pixel 7a to include a lot of the features introduced with the Pixel 7 — the Photo Unblur editing tool, improved Direct My Call capabilities, and transcribed audio messages, to name a trio.

Meanwhile, Samsung will probably stake a claim to being the better long-term wager. Four years of software updates and an additional year of security updates are promised for the Galaxy A54. Unless something changes with the launch of the Pixel 7a, Google only promises three years of software updates for its phones.

Outlook:

The Samsung Galaxy A54 vs. Google Pixel 7a comparison won’t have a clear winner until we’ve tested both devices. We won’t be able to choose the better phone until the summer at the earliest, according to this.

What you get for $449 with Samsung’s new phone, including better cameras, a responsive display, and a faster processor, is confirmed by our initial Galaxy A54 impressions. If Google wants the Pixel 7a to succeed, it will need to rely heavily on Tensor-powered features and top-notch cameras.
