Anonymous, 27 Oct 2020But if there is nothing wrong with it, how do you return it under the warranty?It's a customer protection "thing". You do not even have to give a reason why you return it - just send it back, not damaged ofc., and you get all your money back.
It seems you do not have this law in your country, that's a huge bummer dude.
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2020It's refreshing to see grass and foliage realistic color and detail after all the Chinese... moreThe colour reproduction is nothing to do with the computational imaging itself as it's all tweaked in post processing lol. I would also say many high end Chinese flagships nowadays have overall better balance between noise and details than Pixel mostly thanks to the sheer size of their sensors. This generation's offering from Google doesn't boost up the saturation level high but definitely applies a lot of dehaze filter and sharpening to achieve the typical "GCam look" which I'm not really a fan of.
Just returned mine, totally underwhelmed and I'm a Google phone owner since the first Nexus. I'm going back to my 2XL for now, might consider the Oneplus 8 Pro, it would be my very first non Google phone ever. Bitterly disappointed.
Fearghast, 27 Oct 2020There is a standard "warranty" in the EU to return practically any goods you bought ... moreWhat will the store do with the returned phone will they sell it as refurbished? Because they will lose money if they do so
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2020How do you return something you bought and used?There is a standard "warranty" in the EU to return practically any goods you bought in 14 days.
There are certainly similar rules outside the EU as well + many stores have their own rules that often benefits a customer even more (some even extend it to 90 days for some products - usually sound equipment).
Javierech, 27 Oct 2020I'm sorry but at least in my country is 250 usd more expensiveOh, you are right. It's around €200 more expensive here as well + you do not get headphones any more (compared to Pixel 5).
Un, 26 Oct 2020You can get xperia 5 II for this price. Jesus... Is this some kind of a joke? Way overpriced f... moreI know right? But I bought Pixel 5 instead.
Night and day difference compared to my Xperia 5 - it actually works, imagine that - I take the photo, it's not underexposed - my dog is not a black blob, message comes in and the phone beeps (it does not kill the process), idle battery life is pretty great, connection to a PC via Whatsup or Google messages did not drop so far, my smartwatch syncs instantly - I do not have to force close the application, fingerprint sensor works every time.
IMHO Xperia 5 II is an excellent device - it takes incredible photos when you use proper app and settings, but I am fed up with Sony software bugs. I hope Xperia 5 II wins me back over time, so next year Xperia 5 III will be one of my candidates.
+ TBH Pixel 5 is more compact. I know it the same 6" screen, it could be the uncomfortable 21:9 (not sure).
I have just returned mine. Had it a week and found it wasn't worth the money. Technically it might be a great build etc, but it felt cheap, the speaker didn't resonate so well and when taking a call, the ear speaker was as loud to other people around me than myself.
Want to love this phone as I. Don't like apple but this one is a letdown. Gone back to my pixel 3 XL with a cracked screen rather than pay for this phone!!
765G will age very very badly. I assure you by seeing Quallcomm habits in the past 3 years. $1000 phone that will slow down heavily after one year of usage. Shame on you, google.
Reefknot, 26 Oct 2020I can attest to the pixel 5 real world water resistance, having just accidentally swam 35m wit... moreWhy would you do something like that? Water damage is not covered by warranty despite the IP rating.
ANuttyMonkey, 26 Oct 2020I really hope Google is waiting to roll out a Flagship Pixel 5 XL with a new Snapdragon proces... moreiOS is the leader in the clubhouse. Android for five years has thrown their best punch and made no inroads in the market share. Always an update away, always a bug/flaw in design, always a flat rollout with little enthusiasm. All of the cash and marketing power .... and all we get are meh specs with meh design and good software. At least Apple gives you premium power and build quality (same design/premium components) with that premium price. I personally think Android had 2 more iterations left to start taking market share before they for up and leave in disgrace. Stepping down from the premium smartphone market was step one ... Pretty soon it will be - we only do mid to low phones - to the hard goodbye. Time to relaunch and revamp before you go under.
It's refreshing to see grass and foliage realistic color and detail after all the Chinese flagship reviews with crazy greens and overprocessed watercolor texture.
Google really knows computational photography.
Thx for review, but plz explain battery results. Why were you able to run battery tests on two Hz settings for Galaxy s20 FE but not Pixel 5?
Based on your reviews of both phones, how confident are you that s20 FE battery will last longer and age better?
Plz let me know. Thx
