Google Pixel 4a 5G
So, I've been holding off on getting a new phone for a long time. I said to myself that I wouldn't buy another phone until a decent sized 5G phone comes out that's not $1000 or more. I've been using the Nexus 6P since I bought it when it was released . The day It arrived in the mail I unlocked it, rooted it and started flashing all sorts of roms and mods until the last Resurrection Remix was released on Oreo and have hung with it since, going through 4 batteries, 3 displays, 2 charging ports and 1 fingerprint sensor. I picked up one inexpensive tablet in the meantime to entertain myself but have finally been able to order the new Google Pixel 4a 5G which should arrive around November 20th. It's going to be a huge difference in specs between the two devices and although from what I understand the software in the Pixel 4a 5G is really good, I'm definitely looking forward to getting the latest Resurrection Remix rom when it's available. I hear it's available for the Pixel 4a and it's excellent. Anyone else waiting to get their hands on this device to start running custom roms and modifying the crap out of it?

Hilarious that I read this, the 6P is still my all time favorite phone, hands down. The size, thin-ness (is that a word) and just overall loved the 6P more than anything. I just got my 4a 5G this week and need to activate it. I did find out today it won't fully work in the VZM 5G UWB band.... which is a bummer, but oh well.

I need to dust off my 6P and update it, just for the memories. ;)

I really liked the 6P myself. Wish I didn't crack the digitizer on it or I'd still use it as a backup. I have my original galaxy nexus as well. That was a good phone back in the day but I didn't realize just how slow it is until I fired it up about 6 months ago. First phone I ever unlocked and rooted. What a great phone the 4a 5G has been so far, I don't have any complaints about it. As far as I know there's no custom recovery for it yet so I'm still holding off on rooting it. There's not a lot of mods and only one custom ROM but I'm sure there are people working on it. Get yours activated, you'll like it.

    Who is buying the "4a XL" because of the bigger display?
    Bought 4a 5g for the price, and battery life, same camera as pixel apparently
