It was either this or an iPhone. Double the price I know, but I'd rather longevity if that meant not upgrading every other year. I got a Pixel 2 when it was released in 2017 and that smartphone still sails with Android 11. It seems Google finally caught onto Apple's wisdom on how hardware and software optimizations really pay off in the long run. It's sad, but I had an S10+ and that same Pixel 2 still puts it to shame. RAM doesn't begin to matter (unless gaming, of course) when your launcher is eating that memory up in the background before one's own apps are launched. I wish Sammy would partner with Google and take some of their tips on optimizing.
Well this phone look good. I like the screen size and weight of phone. Unbeatable than other phone. I say other phone manufacturers they make brick. Compare to other this phone, i love it. Well what i dislike the value not very good, you can get better phone with better spec at same price. This pixel 5, You got slow 18 watt charge. slower 700 series sd. Back finger print not my style. Design a bit boring. Anyway this still good if you like to spend money for small phone for your lovely small hand.

Pixel 4a is an excellent deal, cheaper than the 3a was.
I have a Pixel 3a, an excellent product for value in my opinion. However the very fact that people in Germany, unlike people in the UK & Ireland, are offered Bose headphones (€200 plus on value) to purchase a Pixel 5 have caused me to reflect and change my attitude towards Google and their products & services. This different and apparently unfair treatment of customers makes me angry! I no longer intend to deal with Google. Money is money and fairness is fairness.....
Looking at the Oneplus 8 next to this makes this phone completely unpurchasable in my opinion. They cost the same after a recent permanent price reduction by Oneplus, however the Oneplus 8 demolishes the Pixel 5 in almost all aspects, despite releasing 6 months earlier.
What a downgrade, is 2020 and google releasing a phone with rear mounted fingerprint, and without 3d camera for face identification, and 699 bucks?, really google?, with that price i can go for a samsung s20 or a note 10, and is even better...

lilsam624, 01 Oct 2020An asking myself the very same thingWireless charging = electromagnetic waves. Aluminum is non magnetic (unlike metal) so it does not mess the EMG waves.

I never thught a company can beat apple in overpricing their products . Great job google .
Now they only need to sell an tv holder for 1100$ and they will be the undisputed chapions
it is nearly perfect and it is so cheap and affordable! just need a glass back to put it 100% perfect. I will definitely buy it.
Chrsjns, 01 Oct 2020Hi is the snapdragon 765G the best chipset among all other snapdragon midranger?yes.
but if you count the 768g from k30 racing edition (an exclusive overclocked version of 765g)
