This is more of a budget phone than anything else and, like any other budget phone people are always concerned about performance. Can i use my apps on this phone? Can i play any games on it, so that's what we are gon na find out in today's video? So inside this phone we have the snapdragon 730 that's paired with six gigs of ram and 128 gigs of internal storage and if you run the antutu benchmark on it, you're going to get a score of about 248 000.. Now, personally, i got to try a bunch of cheaper phones, and i typically know that when i get an amplitude score of about 150, 000 or higher, the phone will do really good, and this is also the case with a pixel 4a. So in today's video we are going to open and use a bunch of apps. We are also going to see how the phone does for multitasking and after that um we are going to do some gaming. So you can see how the phone does for gaming as well, and that being said, let me turn the camera around, so you can see all those apps on the phone, alright, so we're gon na start by opening um, some of the most popular apps that everyone Um uses these days, so we have facebook, twitter, instagram, youtube and snapseed. So we'll start by opening facebook. First, i wan na shoot. I don't have any apps running in the background this, so you can see how quick the apps open.
So this is um facebook so that one works good. Let that run in the background. We have twitter here so after it loads it does uh scroll all right. Maybe there is a bit of lag when scrolling up and down, but i think that had to do with the initial loading, but because now on it does work on really good, as you can probably see so we'll close this, but to let it run. In the background, next, we have instagram once again we're going to give it a couple of seconds for it to load and scrolling up and down works, pretty decent as well just um as you've seen with the other apps too. So we'll close this well we'll. Let it run in the background. Next, we have the youtube app, so we'll give it a second till it loads, so once again it loads, and then you can scroll up and down pretty quickly. So no issues with that. We also have snapseed here, let's, just open a random picture. We'Ll choose let's, see what we have let's choose this one here: we'll go to tools, we'll tune the image a bit; let's um let's! Just do this, for example, and this so we'll just um leave that running in the background as well and of course we have google photos so once it loads uh everything works. Fine now, let's see what happened to all those apps. So facebook is still running the background.
Twitter is still running the background. Instagram the same the youtube app the same snapseed the same and google photos is the same. So, as you can probably see for yourself, the phone performs really good for um the regular apps that you're gon na use every single day. So no issues with that next we're gon na play some games and i have call of duty. I have dead, trigger two injustice asphalt, extreme pubg, so i'm gon na show you like um a minute of each game, so i guess we'll start with call of duty all right. So, as i said earlier, we are starting with the call of duty and uh just in case you're wondering all the games that i'm gon na play will be at the maximum graphics settings. So this is call of duty, and i guess we'll – do some multiplayer let's start with this one confirm and start all right, so let's see how i do with the call of duty some days. I do really good some days, not oh! No! This is not one of those good days from the looks of it, but, as you can probably see the oh look at that, as you can probably see, the phone does perform really good for a game like this. Oh no, so we'll try one more time. Just i can show you how the game performs. Of course. Oh there is someone wrong here so at the bottom, yeah call of duty does work um, really good on this um device.
So next uh, i guess we'll exit this game and we'll try some pubg all right so pubg, as you can probably see for yourself uh. The phone performs really good for this game. Um as well. Let'S switch to one of those guns um, as i had the game set before i'm, using this one at the maximum graphics settings. So let's do a bit of running so, as you can probably see for yourself, no lag for this game on as well, but that was kind of to be expected because when you typically get uh an android score of over 150 000 well, most phones perform pretty Decent, so since this phone is getting an antutu score of over 240 000 yeah, it was to be expected that it would work good so for call of duty and pubg. The pixel 4a will do really good all right. So next we have asphalt extreme and um. Just as you'd expect, this game will perform on extremely good as well. Just like the other two uh, i have the game set: uh the maximum graphic settings, of course, and i'm just going to try to win this race. Oh no, so i have to to play the game uh having the controls on the on the screen, because otherwise, if i move the phone left and right, um you're not gon na be able to see it on the camera. But, as you can probably see, this game will do extremely good as well on the pixel 4a okay.
So this game is called dead trigger 2.. I played it a bit earlier. We'Ll see Music and just as you'd expect uh after seeing how the other games performed. This one does uh does work extremely good. This game is almost too easy, so yeah this game will um work great as well. Next we're gon na move on to another game called the injustice 2. I believe so. Let'S uh see how that one performs all right and we're moving on to our next game here, uh with this one i'm, not the not the best, i don't even know how to play it, but uh let's try this chick here, yeah definitely confusing, but, as you Can see this game does perform pretty good as well so i'm. Pretty sure that any game that you're gon na find in uh the google play store will uh work good uh on the pixel 4a. So let's see this game because i don't know how to play it, but um yeah. So all apps games pretty much everything that you're gon na do on this device does uh does work really well, if you do have any questions feel free to leave a comment.
