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.
Why not making a flat egde frame on coming Pixel 6
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.
-No XL Variant this year
IS THIS A CONS of PIXEL 5???
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?

Socalteknique, 26 Oct 2020How come Gsmarena doesn't take pictures of the usual buildings like in other phone review... moreMaybe because to review the Pixel 5 they traveled to the other side of the globe as stated in the review?
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2020Good job! There are better ANC headsets now. Don't need to be stuck with old Bose headsets.It's older gen. It's still decent, but it's still typical Bose - their new line like 700s are a lot different in terms of sound tuning, built quality, ANC was improved a lot + 700 mics are incredible for a headset without a boom mic.
QC 35 II are a decent freebie, 700 or Shure Aonic 50 would be much better :D
sumdumguy, 26 Oct 2020Except the OG Pixel had not only flagship processor, but the most recent flagship processor at... moreYeah, the price received a decent boost compared to OG Pixel.
But that is sadly common for many brands like Samsung, Apple, Sony etc. - they all are racing for that €1500 smartphone by 2022.
Pixel 5 is certainly not a champ when it comes to price / value ration in any way.
Socalteknique, 26 Oct 2020How come Gsmarena doesn't take pictures of the usual buildings like in other phone review... moreIt's like there is some pandemic going on or something ... :-/
It's really that hard to imagine not all activities can be done 100% same at this time? :D
I rather buy a Huawei P40 Lite 5G or even cheaper non-5G variant...

People who brag about stock ROM being better usually lack experience of using different Android skins (especially skins from 2020).
AnonD-945200, 26 Oct 2020stock android , good Camera and good battery life ... This is just perfect 😍 Midrange performance, Same old main sensor from the pixel 2.....Stock android is a joke coz smartphone manufacturers are increasingly developing better version of their respective android OS...Even MIUI 12 on my friend's MI 10 5G is smooth and but while there are still workarounds to disable ads, its worth the time....The only tempting thing on this phone for me is its compact screen and the camera software...But i know how to sideload GCAM for non pixel devices(my ASUS 6Z has one installed)...
