Wait if You're Worried About Problems
If you're concerned about hardware or software problems, you might want to hang back and wait.
The Pixel 4a runs Android 10 out of the box. Google has made significant improvements to the software in 2020, but we could see some issues popup after the Pixel 4a's release later on this month.
Google will push bug fix updates to the Pixel 4a in the weeks ahead and some of you might want to hang back and wait for the company to iron out initial issues with the phone.
New Pixel devices sometimes debut with hardware issues as well. We haven't heard about any widespread problems, but the phones aren't on shelves yet.
If you're concerned, you might want to wait and see what kinds of problems early adopters run into in the early going.
