Google’s Pixel 4a was launched not too long ago and it seems to herald Google’s return to the good old days of affordable Nexus handsets. The Pixel 4a is a more than capable smartphone if you’re not too fussed about performance and having the latest technology or features.

So now that you’re on board the Pixel 4a bandwagon and you’re holding the phone in your hands, what’s next? If you’re new to the Pixel smartphone lineup or to Android or simply want to know how to setup your phone for the best experience, you’ll definitely want to read on to find out.

Right out of the box, the Pixel 4a’s color profile is set to “Adaptive”. This means that the color (not the brightness) changes depending on the environment, apps, and so on. For the most part it’s not particularly noticeable when switching between colors, but in case you prefer a more consistent look, you can choose between two other options.

  1. Open Settings
  2. Go to Display
  3. Select Colors
  4. You can now choose between Natural and Boosted, or keep it at Adaptive
  5. Repeat the steps above to change the color profiles again
