Google unveiled the Pixel 6a last week at its I/O developer conference, delivering a mid-range phone that’s powered by the same Tensor processor seen in the Pixel 6 series. Between this level of horsepower, the solid battery size, Google’s software and the IP67 rating, there’s a lot to like here.

Nevertheless, our own Rob Triggs wrote an opinion post suggesting that the Pixel 6a was still a little too expensive at $449. It comes in at $150 cheaper than the standard Pixel 6, so we asked you whether you’d buy the Pixel 6a or splash out a little extra on the vanilla Pixel 6. Here’s how you voted.
