I have family in Australia and visit fairly regularly, so asked JB Hi-Fi Australia if I purchased a Pixel 3a from them whether I could obtain warranty service in New Zealand. Unfortunately, the answer is no.

 

Warranty service is only available in the countries Google sells the device:

Unfortunately Google thinks of NZ as a part of the tech 3rd world.

I bought mine from JB HiFi Aus, and interestingly the warranty card inside the box refers to "Australia & New Zealand" throughout, not sure if that changes things?

I think the issue is there aren't any authorised service agents in New Zealand. You'd have to ship it back to Australia for repair.

Update, successfully picked up my parcel in Singapore
Found a screen protector and hard case at a local IT mall ... seperated the phone from the box and had no issues with customs.

 

Currently setting the phone up, but so far very happy with the device

So what does everyone think of the 3a who've used it?? In Aussie and I'm tempted.

I think it's a fantastic phone at this price point. Camera and Android experience being the big positives. It's fairly slippery so if you're prone to dropping things I'd recommend a case.

Currently using one. Overall experience and feel of the thing is very similar to a nexus.just a simple, affordable pure Android experience with good camera.

Having said that I'm getting a mi 9 se from banggood for 406nzd shipped for my wife as spec wise it is an upgrade in every single way. (I just don't like MIUI)
