Wow 2020 phone with these specs...not good totally underwhelming
Feragoth, 15 Oct 2020Now that the first reviews are in its obvious that the phone is more than the sum of its parts... moresee above your comment what Tom pogo said,and then may be you will understand something.
I just had mine delivered. All I can really say is disappointed. I’ve been a nexus and pixel fan from the start but this year really is the worst phone they decided to bring to the masses.
The photos still have to processed after the photo is taken because of the lack of the pixel core neural engines missing. This meaning that when you take a photo of what you think looks good, the phone then processes it and it comes back like a different photo more often than not blurry or darker than what you shoot.
STEER WELL CLEAR OF THIS ONE! The
Now that the first reviews are in its obvious that the phone is more than the sum of its parts.
I havent seen a single review where people complained about the processor unless you are heavily involved in gaming, which means the phone will perform just fine for 90% of the user base out there.
Couple that with a camera that is sill among the best even in 2020, a clean UI with timely updates, a great screen, compact size, wireless charging, an extremely good battery life and an aluminium build its actually an absolute no brainer especially if you factor in the Bose headset that you got when preordering the device. Overall the price drops to 400 Euro that way.
Sure you get the likes of Xiaomi, One Plus etc for a similar or better price but none of them will offer the package the Google can offer.
Stop comparing phones based on Antutu scores and check out the phone yourself especially if you are looking for a phone with a compact size.

Google wants to focus on user experience for a descent price. Google understands that people don't want a good looking specsheet but a satisfying user experience.

The Pixel line is about simplicity. Google have started going back to their roots with everything they make. By making an affordable phone that still has water resistance, insanely good cameras for photo or video, easy software, great build quality and real updates, you get a phone that will absolutely make anything else feel overpriced and not worth it.
The best phones to date have been the ones with less tech than others. The Nexus line and even OnePlus line as an example prove big tech doesn't always mean the best. The Nord as an example does almost anything the Note 20 does but costs half.
I am not a Google fan but I would give 100, even 200 Euro more for this device to get it with Snapdragon 865 or even 855. What a pity, that Google didn't want to choose a better solution for it. In this case I have to think about Pixel 5 or iPhone 12 (mini).
Short story I had both pixel 2XL and 3XL my 3 xl got crashed literally then I got oneplus 7 pro, Now my father's Samsung s7 edge just died and I gave him the oneplus and I'm using the pixel 2XL.
After returning to the pixel I got how it's not about the hardware (even that I love how the Google design look and feel different than anything else) it's the most useful phone every thing I do is faster and easier with the pixel as for doing it not the refresh rate of the oneplus not the speed it's beautiful to use a pixel and the 6 inch XL is not small not big just comfortable.
So I pre-ordered the pixel 5 it doesn't have everything but its everything I need flagship camera perfectly sized good hardware with no gimmicks that I don't use, clean fast software with alot of useful day to day stuff I don't play games on my phone thats the Xbox series X I pre-ordered job.
I guess if it had sn865 alot of hate this phone is getting will be gone but the sn765g is not bad is just as if Intel made an i6 processor to be between the i5 and i7.
Poco X2 User, 12 Oct 2020You make a flag ship phone but you don't provide 120Hz display. Great.Get another phone then?
all that phones: pixel samsung huawei is sooo bad compare to oneplus devices. and pixel 5 not an exception
In the UK:
The Pixel 5 is £599 and the Pixel 4a 5G is £499 both with SD765 + 128GB
The OnePlus 8 is £549 with SD865 + 128GB + £599 with 256GB
The OnePlus Nord is £379 with SD765 + 128GB
So really the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G are competing with the OnePlus Nord and the Nord is £120 cheaper than the 4a 5G and £220 cheaper than the Pixel 5,
The Pixel 5s only significant advantage over the OnePlus 8 being wireless charging
The Pixel 4a is £349 with SD730 + 128GB so the Nord is in that price category
If Google are ever going to be truly successful with there Pixel phones they need to start be ultra aggressive with there prices and specifications
The comments on here are gold
Comparing Pixel 5 to other cheaper/similar priced Androids - show me one that will get immediate OS and security updates, guaranteed for the next 3 years? That's what you're paying for.
Comparing to unreleased iPhone 12 mini - 12 mini is £100 more expensive in the UK, and I believe down to personal choice as different OS.
And people saying the Pixel 5 camera is trash before seeing reviews...what makes you think that Google has dropped the ball here? They have all of the photo and camera data from all the Pixels that have been sold and taken photos, as well as phones that use Google Photos: they know what the people actually want and use, not what fanboys claim, and as such I'm sure it will be fire.
Pixel 5 is a ridiculous phone, priced well above its worth, the Nord and many others with similar or better specs are half its price. As for screen size, bring on the iphone mini 5.4" and will cost less than the Pixel 5 and has a better HDR and AI camera software ecology than the Pixel 5 Gcam update. Google pick your socks up and release an up to date phone/camera if you going to charge twice the price of its competitors. The Iphone Mini screen, camera, A14 SoC (5nm) and overall quality feel just put the Pixel 5 to shame, its an embarrassment. No wonder they cant crack the top sales figures. Release your industrial designers and native droid is worse than Oxygen OS so release your UX designers too.
small >>>> Pixel 5
smaller + super lighter(135gr)>>>> Iphone 12 mini
both almost same price
both ip68 + wireless charger (sony xperia 5 ll doesn't have it)
the behind camera of 12mini have more details
+ selfie is so much better than pixel 5
12mini have WIFI 6....that pixel5 with no Wifi6
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2020Well wait for iphone 12 5.2 size then it will be war on between that and this. and ipone price will be just bigger than this, not cheaper
Move to Pixel 4 XL.
anonymous, 12 Oct 2020Please compare all specs of pixel 5 with pixel 2XL. The latter is better in all sense. Pixel 2XL has ram issues so the device constantly restarts itself tho.
Return of the metal unibody!
I need help: As amazon removes access to links to out-of-stock products, I cannot find the link on Amazon France or Amazon Germany. Please, someone has the out of stock links especially from Germany... I am also interested in the one from France, even if they only sell the "Just Black" version. Here I only see the links to UK and USA.
