This is my last stand for Android. I'll definitely swicth to iOS in the near future and never come back.
In the begining, this product'd bee quite amazing actually but it was getting worse with the update of Android. The heat problem, Bluetooth connection issue, and other lots of bugs are annoying enough to drive me crazy. I don't appreciate a buggy phone with a premium price. Nevertheless, as the premium phone from Google in 2020, why the operating system update is only 2 years?
In summary, the hardware and the pixel team have been doing a great job but the Android OS sucks!
Anybody facing overheating issue, even during web searching and facebook, for only 15 min about?

- use Bluetooth headset
- not like the cord because of ... something :)
- not one other place where can water go in
- want potentially thinner phone
and maybe not good for you, if:
- not has Bluetooth headset
- not want to worry because of the headset battery
- you have a lot very good headset with cord
Otherwise in the quality not has difference if you use BT headset with aptX or other loseless technology.
By the way I use the Pixel 5 a time now (and like it a lot:) ) and not was problem the missing jack. I bought a BT headset and I like it. Old times I used headset with cord, but the BT headset has a big freedom. I can put somewhere my phone and move freely. Or I can put my phone to a backpack and can listen music and accept any calls. So yes I think it has good sides and as well bad sides and this will be the feature because of the bigger freedom in usage. :)

. Lightning Jack audio jack
. Micro jack 2.5
. 3.5 mm mini-jack
. 6.3 mm jack
. USB audio jack
I think the charging port also serves as the earphone port, just like iPhone

Worse - every company followed suit and no one has them now. Why? I see people walking down the street all the time with headphones on - so how are they doing it if all the phones have no jacks? why would the manufacturers stop making headphone jacks when EVERYONE USES THEM?? It makes zero sense to me
You buy a Pixel phone because you are a fan of Pixel and you want to have a good phone, you do not buy a phone that you do not know and then complain I am from Bulgaria for a year used Pixel 5 phone is amazing to have only 4G because no operator certified it or maybe google didn't bother to certify it but that doesn't mean the phone is rotten the phone is amazing. Everything in it is at a level that other companies simply cannot afford.
Tomi, 01 Jun 2022No VoLTE, proximity sensor not working well... My last Pixel... If you live in a country in which Google has not officially launched its product, you complain for nothing. This device has VoLTE but not in your country...you buy this device for what it stands not for a feature; buy a device supported buy your country's mobile operators and you'll have VoLTE
No VoLTE, proximity sensor not working well...
My last Pixel...
Anonymous, 10 May 2022Is the camera better than the 4a? Is the refresh rate that big of a difference? 4a Camera is the same as pixel 5 but Video pixel 5 is a bit better.

W, 21 Apr 2022GSMARENA list it as "avaible", but it's not possible to purchase in my country ... moreYou ask why is it so expensive, well that's what the Pixel 5 was all along. You see these videos from 2 years ago, all saying the Pixel 5 is overpriced as hell. Even if it was available at a retailer, the price would be high.
The Pixel 5 and the Google service is a disaster. As I was switching sim card to get a passcode for my company's login. The top of the sim card tray broke. Not being able to get a sim card in my phone any more and having my phone for less than 2 years, I contacted Google about the issue. After chatting with 3 individuals repeating my stories for 3 times, they asked me for a phone number for contact, which I no longer had because I was not able to put a sim card in the phone any more. Then they asked me to send the phone back for repair that I'll have to pay for. This would be my last Google phone and should be everyone else's as well.
The Google service is a disaster.
W, 21 Apr 2022GSMARENA list it as "avaible", but it's not possible to purchase in my country ... moreI don't know what GSMARENA is listing but for your information, this device has been withdrawn from production and cannot be found anywhere else (except perhaps Ebay). If you can get your hands on a 5a that would be awesome since it's almost the same device (minus ip68 and 8gb ram); if not you can easily get a Pixel 6.
If I am to speculate regarding "available" on this website it would be that this device is currently receiving updates.
Best of luck
GSMARENA list it as "avaible", but it's not possible to purchase in my country (Sweden). Why? And why is it still so expensive at Ebay?
The best device I've ever had. Absolutely no remarks on software and hardware. Google's operating system is unique. I've been using it for 10 months - no frost, absolutely everything is super greasy. Working as a fitter-welder said the most durable so far. I use a SPIGEN Ultra Hybrid case. The fact that there is no headphone jack is great. The camera is excellent in all conditions. No remarks, the phone is a pleasure to use. I will keep it for a very long time. Rating 10/10.
Good phone (superb camera). No 5G in the majority of countries, though: 5G only works on few selected countries because of software issues.
