Wizaro, 04 Oct 2020No. Hardware needs a jump in specs. It's good for 2 years. Not more than that. Bro, this phone can last (at least) 4 years - both in software and hardware aspect. From Android 11 to Android 14 including - every single September... In Black Friday its price will drop to 550 EUR or even 500 EUR!!! So just stop all trolling the community here because I know most of you will buy one ;-)
pixel 5 is worth the £100 extra over the pixel 4a 5G in the uk? claim the headphones and sell for £200. the phone will cost £400 i see this as a win win.
I was pretty much dead set on the Pixel 4a 5G. Both of them are essentially made out of plastic, so the selling point of the Pixel 5 being made out of aluminium is out the door for me. 90Hz is nice but I'm going to stick with 60Hz anyways as I want a longer battery life. Then there's the fact that the Pixel 5 doesn't even offer an additional telephoto lens, which Google thought "is more important" last year, a stance I actually agree with now. Also, not that I really cared about it too much, but it also lost the 3.5mm audio jack. That leaves the IP68 rating, and the 2GB of additional RAM the only remaining selling point over the 4a 5G for me. All these factors combined for 120 CAD less than the Pixel 5 made it incredibly attractive to me, until I realized I really want to go back to using a smaller phone. I got my mom an iPhone SE (2020) earlier this year to replace her iPhone 6, I've since then started using her iPhone 6 daily coming from a Xiaomi Mi A1, and I realized how much more useful and intuitive using a smaller device could be. If the battery life proves to be sufficient for me (at least 34h custom endurance rating, 0h of calls, 4h of web browsing, and 4 hours of video playback), then I AM buying the Pixel 5.
geek-a-contra, 05 Oct 2020volume wise xperia 5II is app 5% larger, thus it does not take much more space in the pocket. ... moreThe 5 II is actually just a little too big for the pockets I keep my phone in, which is unfortunate. Also, glass back.I am very glad Google has abandoned glass for the 5, it was that put me off earlier ones.
lpl, 05 Oct 2020Xperia 5II is almost 2cms higher that the pixel 5?! Both compact? Seriously? volume wise xperia 5II is app 5% larger, thus it does not take much more space in the pocket. at the other hand xperia pack 3 cameras instead of 2, a 3.5mm plug, a sd slot, two face speakers, all the stuff related to a ip68 protection, a glass back cover, and the screen is 6.1" vs 6" for the p5. but no worry, i'm sure you can find all over the place phones with similar characteristics like the 5II but much, much, much smaller. like, for instance, pixel 5...
No money for pixel 5 :( so 4a basic is only choice for me but if I had 1159€ for smartphone I would take pixel 5 and for 459$ add some headphones an nexdec 3
The price is decent... ditch the headphones for 200 & that brings it down to 400. Worth upgrading from the pixel 1 / 2

Anonymous, 04 Oct 2020Oh. Makes sense. The Pixel is certainly more compact and stock Android appeals to many, includ... moreIf you want smaller phone, go for Pixel 4a. But be sure you don't play games a lot, otherwise you will find it a bit sluggish. I have this phone now and am happy so far. It is one of the smaller phones with good quality build. Some people say the look is a pass, but I really don't mind it and I like the black matte feel of it. It isn't slippery in hand, one of the gripes I have with the Google case designed for the phone.
ants, 04 Oct 2020i think im gonna Sony Xperia 5 ii instead of Pixel 5 .. what do you think?Good choice
4a 5G shouldn't exist, instead the P5 should've cost 599. That's it, it would've appeal to a lot more people imo and not confuse non tech-savvy people what the differences are between 4a5G & 5.
As a Pixel fan, I'm trying to get rid off my 4 XL while it's worth something as I've lost more than half the value in less than a second. Lost hope for Google
Joepublic, 04 Oct 2020The google pixel phones are good value in this present climate with lots of unemployment and u... moreThe only good thing about google are its updates and how clean its interface is, but its phones give a lot to be desired, and at this price you can find other better devices at this price, what quality-price or anything
Should have added another option - Pixel is not available in my country. Because very few countries will get it.
I was deadly sure that it would be my next cellphone but then I found out that there is no dedicated camera chip. I doubt it will be able to make the same photos as the previous generation. There is no appropriate review yet so let's wait and see what is capable of. 🤞

Screens are too small and the price to high for what they offer so it seems that I will skip this generation also. Long gone are the days of Nexus phones when you got the latest specs for an afforadable price.
