Google is about to introduce the Pixel 7a, a new affordable smartphone to its Android portfolio. The Pixel 6a made excellent profits for the OEM, which is benefiting fruitful upgrades on its sequel, however, Samsung Galaxy A54 is still a great choice over the Google Pixel 7a.

Samsung Galaxy A54 is way better than Google Pixel 7a, let’s compare key specs.


Google’s upcoming Pixel 7a reportedly brings a 6.1 inches OLED display, with a 90Hz refresh rate, up from 6a’s 60Hz. While the Pixel 7a is getting an upgrade to a 90Hz panel, Samsung’s Galaxy A54 is already equipped with a pro-grade 6.4 inches 120Hz Super AMOLED screen.


Pixel 7a is also getting upgrade in the main camera as a new 64-megapixel sensor, which features optical image stabilization and phase detection autofocus technology. On the flip side, the Galaxy A54 brings a 50-megapixel primary camera, which delivers stunning images anytime, anywhere.

Moreover, both smartphones come with a 12-megapixel ultrawide image sensor with the same f/2.2. While Google’s upcoming phone is capped at two sensors for imaging, the Galaxy A54 features a 5-megapixel macro lens so you can capture close-up shots, such as nature, too.

Samsung’s best 2023 mid-range phone is equipped with a 32-megapixel front camera, while Pixel 7a reportedly brings a 10.8-megapixel lens for selfies and video calling. Notably, both phones promise great AI capabilities to let you shoot in the nighttime too.


Both phones feature matching designs as Samsung and Google’s flagship portfolios. The Pixel 7a brings a horizontal bar on the camera lenses, which expands from the left to right end, which seems thin compared to Pixel 7. Meanwhile, the Galaxy A54 has the same design as the Galaxy S23 flagship.


The Galaxy A54 runs One UI 5.1 out of the box, while the Pixel 7a runs Android 13 in its purest form. Google owns Android, but the real and longest support provider is Samsung. With A54, you will get OS upgrades up to Android 17, while Pixel 7a will stick to Android 16.

Performance & Battery

Samsung’s own-made Exynos 1380 5nm processor powers the Galaxy A54, which is an octa-core chip featuring 4×2.4 GHz Cortex-A78 & 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 and a Mali-G68 MP5 GPU.

Battery Widget Android 13 One UI 5.1

Battery Widget: One UI 5.1 Vs Android 13

Showcased at the SDC 2023, Samsung’s Battery Widget arrive on Galaxy devices with the One UI 5.1 update in February. Galaxy users after upgrading their phone to the One UI 5.1 version can use the feature to get updated with info about how much juice is left in their devices.

One UI 5.1’s battery status widget introduces two different styles including a “Circles” 4×1 and a “List” 4×2. You can expand the area by two times vertically, while it’s not possible to reduce the occupation area, which is the worst thing I noticed.

On the other hand, the Android 13 battery widget has just a single choice but it’s way too advance, as compared to the One UI 5.1. The widget takes size as per the number of devices paired with the smartphone, if you don’t have any, it will remain single-linear.

One UI vs Android

Not that all, the widget is interactive as the system Settings’ battery tab gets opened as soon as you tap the widget. Similar to One UI 5.1, the Android 13’s widget adapts to system settings whether it’s in Light mode or Dark mode for a well-optimized home screen appearance.

Earlier, we compared the Battery widget of One UI 5.1 and Apple iOS 16, which was a tough fight between both. However, the One UI requires work on optimization and usability improvements are necessary to make it better than rivals including Android and iOS.

Since One UI 5.1’s battery widget is just the initial version, we believe Samsung will work on it and make notable improvements. The One UI 6.0 will be the next major version for Galaxy devices, likely to release later this year, you can check our features wishlist below.

The second column consists of a laser autofocus, an LED flash, and a secondary telephoto camera, capable of 3x zoom. Actually, the S22 Ultra resembles the S21 Ultra but without that large camera bump.

If you look closely at the S23 Ultra, the difference between the camera structure and the aesthetics is barely noticeable. Because the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra willfully carries the camera design and layout from the S22 Ultra. Specifically, the first and second columns are identical in both devices. This is causing a variation in opinion among consumers who were expecting a major makeover.

Speaking of major, this flagship stands as a 200MP camera powerhouse. Using a super-resolution sensor, Samsung promises high-quality photography and robust optical image stabilization in videos.
