First up - the Specs
The latest flagship from Google, the Pixel 5 is also one that has broken the flagship mould in many ways and has instantly become one of the most interesting phones being released this year. Featuring a 6 inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, the Pixel 5 stands out from its predecessors in multiple ways. It still features a physical fingerprint reader in the back, has a 40% larger battery, in a body that is actually smaller than the Pixel 4, has 8GB of RAM and 128 GBs of storage and is 5G compatible. It also features IP 68 rating for water and dust resistance as well as wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. And at just $799 CAD, the Pixel 5 makes a good claim to be the premium Android phone of choice for most people.
- Excellent cameras: The Pixel line has always been known for its cameras and the Pixel 5 is no exception. The Pixel 5 features for the first time an ultra-wide 16 MP rear camera with advanced video stabilisation for enhanced video performance. For the rest, it continues the excellent work that we have come to expect from Pixel’s cameras.
- Good battery life: With a 4000 mAh battery, the Pixel 5 manages to cram a 40% larger battery within a frame that is smaller than last year’s Google Pixel 4. With a slightly lower powered Snapdragon 765G processor to power and some smart battery adaptive technology, the Pixel 5 promises an easy full day battery life and in fact suggests being able to push into 2-day battery life category when necessary!
- Excellent overall package: Google seems to have listened to user feedback and has fixed all the most common complaints that Pixel users had - insufficient RAM and a less than average battery life. By fixing those two issues as well as including welcome perks like wireless charging and water resistance, in an aesthetically pleasing package, it is hard to see what is lacking in the Pixel 5.
- Snapdragon 765G processor: While it is hard to think of too many negatives which could be deal breakers for the Pixel 5, it is worth mentioning that while most premium flagships today feature a Snapdragon 865 processor, the Pixel 5 features merely a Snapdragon 765G processor. However, multiple reports suggest that the 765G offers very little real-world disadvantages than the 865 chipsets and has the added advantage of helping the phone cost less. The only time the 765G chip is said to show its weakness is when playing GPU intensive 3D games. So if you are an avid mobile gamer, this is something to keep in mind, but if not, then most likely you will never notice the difference in the chipset.
