Google makes fun of iPhones by teasing this Pixel 3a feature

All hail the plastic Pixel

It doesn't appear to be limited to a single carrier. The issue was still present when the phone was in Safe Mode, eliminating any third-party apps as the cause.

Users realtimeanalytics, Ravoz, Nfuzzy, gold_bull, Deazyl, migeul35, Zephyrical16, and EnragedAardvark reported in to a pair of Reddit threads about the issue in the past 24 hours. However, the Pixel 3a and the 3a XL seem to be randomly shutting down completely. Google is yet to publicly acknowledge the problem, and this isn't the first time Pixel devices have been released with flaws.

Google has unveiled new hardware and services at its annual I/O developer's conference, including a more affordable Pixel smartphone, a new generation of the Google Assistant and a beta version of the latest version of Android Q.

Some users have speculated if this issue is caused by a Wi-Fi bug since the shutdown seems to happen only when connected to a network.

As previously reported, some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL owners were also affected by a "reboot bug", which Google acknowledged and pledged to fix. Every time, the user has to restart the phone by pressing the power button for a fairly long duration of up to 30 seconds. In addition to the random shutdowns problem, some users also had to face various display problems. Early bugs in the Pixel 3 were fixed with a security update. On the other hand, there is also a significant number of Reddit users who own these handsets and shared their entirely positive experience on the same page.

However, we have tested the smartphone and havent experienced the same with our unit, but if you have recently bought the new afordable pixels and are facing any issues, let us know in comments section.
