I really hope Google is waiting to roll out a Flagship Pixel 5 XL with a new Snapdragon processor. Google needs to be on the cutting edge to drive android. If they wait for Samsung or LG to do it IOS is going to start taking back market share.
malikalamgirian, 26 Oct 2020The phone has a terrible speaker for calling and music playing. Don't buy it - especially... moreTook a few calls with regular and loudspeaker but the call quality was IHMO really good.
The other site noted the mics are not as sensitive as Sony or LG, but on my site everything was good sound wise.
I do like that the area that emits the sound is quite wide.
One of the worst reviews I've ever seen. "Speakers are loud", that's it, with that said. It doesn't even say that you hear one speaker more than the other (really true are loud? I think not). Examples of zoom up to x2... And the x7 for example or x10? Let me see which blurry image is at x7! Don't be afraid to try it. I only see portraits of the guy who did the review. We already know that he must like to appear in the photos. It seems that a good score has been given yes or yes.
I can attest to the pixel 5 real world water resistance, having just accidentally swam 35m with it in my pocket.
What is best?
Note 10 almost same small size,same decent battery life,no 5g, 500 eur
Pixel 5 900 eur
i like the size, i definitely want to return to "small" phones, but i will wait for camera under display. Fingerprint in the back isn't really exciting, it's one of the first changes that i hated in recent years, besides disgusting punchholes and notches. It's already 3-4 years with no good mobile on the market (light, notchless, physical fingerprint) besides Xperia 1/5.2..

Anonymous, 26 Oct 2020The Summary needs correcting:
Pixel-only features like Hold for Me and Robo Call-screening ... moreExactly.
I'm in HK and I have a Pixel 4 which I imported. No motion sense and none of those Duplex features etc either.
Very annoying that Google can't roll out phones whose features are universal.
The best Pixel since 3. Yeah, I'm biased because I own it and the OG. Three things I like about it.
- Longest battery life
- Metal back
Wide-angle cam and maintaining a small size is just gravy. Google went back to the basics. I already own the 3 which has a stronger GPU, so I don't need it. But for folks who never own a Pixel, this is a good buy. I personally think the 4 is the worst Pixel of all-time. While the 5 is the best within the exception of stepping back on its SoC.
Great performance, 2xl camera ?! kkk continues to be the best in the world, beating all iPhones and samsungs and xiaomis of life, it is no wonder that this whole group uses gcam, apart from pure Android, faster, more performance, and no trash installed uselessly, it comes clean, you put what you want, pixel is too top, who is crying or doesn't have money for one or doesn't know anything.
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2020I've listened to both and prefer the sound of QC II. Yes, they are an excellent freebie ... moreCan hardly blame you - 700s are, for Bose, surprisingly flat sounding, BUT with very narrow soundstage. QC are mostly V shaped with decent soundstage.
If I am not mistaken they even started manufacturing QC as a gaming headset :-D
I am buying the Pixel 5 partly for the size although it could have been a bit bigger but mainly for the rear fingerprint scanner, so much more convenient to use than the awkward under display scanners - which are a deal breaker for me. Too many new phones are crazy huge, no thanks.
in the pros section you say speakers are loud,but you did not test them!and in relaity we all know that they aren't great at all!!how about that?
Fearghast, 26 Oct 2020It's older gen. It's still decent, but it's still typical Bose - their new line... moreI've listened to both and prefer the sound of QC II. Yes, they are an excellent freebie despite being previous gen headphones.
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2020Stock ROM skips practically all the useful features that are more likely to be present on othe... moreBlame MKBHD, he's always going on about stock android as if it's the best Android out there and thinks Pixels are the best Android phones.
