Pixel 6 / 6 Pro leaks came out yesterday. Looks like a decent phone to hang out for.
Yep hopefully we aren't let down like every other year 😬
You're telling me. It's been getting harder to stick with them :(
I got the 5 and gave up. iPhone now.
@onlinepred: What was wrong with the 5?
@lukefl: Wasn't a true flagship in terms of hardware and Google really stepped back on improving a lot of the phones traditional selling points for example the camera is not of flagship quality and most now beat it. It was also subject to a lot of manufacturing defects.
@Importmonster: I thought google made it pretty clear that it wasn't a flagship phone but sure.
@universe: Yes, i never said they didn't? My point was that it's a pixel and it's frankly supposed to be a flagship…
@Importmonster: but it wasnt
@lukefl: It was slower at taking and processing photos/videos than my 4xl, speaker while on call was the worst of any phone I’ve used in the last few years, literally a downgrade from 4xl, no depth sensor face unlock, no motion, expensive, slower to load web pages than even iPhone XS.
@onlinepred: Those reasons are understandable, although it really depends on the person. Slower image processing honestly doesn't seem like a big deal, unless you really must see your finalised photos instantly. I rarely use the speakers instead of headphones for media or calls, so the speaker quality isn't a big issue. Face unlock is another debatable one, because many people would say that the fingerprint sensor is better. Motion sensing is verging on gimmick, although I can see it being helpful for some people. Expensive yes, but so was the 4 XL (more so), and the 5 is good value with deals.
@onlinepred: Isn't it a huge pain switching over to the iPhone ecosystem, re-purchasing apps, having to use iTunes and iCloud, etc?
@Diji: Only reason I Havant, FKn iTunes and The ecosystem, you're commited for life then
@G-rig: Had an iPhone for a while. Never used iTunes. Why would you use it? Same goes for google right? I’m using Spotify and google products on iPhone. Super freaking easy.
@onlinepred: iTunes is necessary if you want to transfer files locally, AFAIK, not just for music.
@Diji: I transferred photos using windows file explorer. Never installed iTunes.
@Diji: Never really purchased apps. I use google products which work perfectly on iPhone. I use Spotify for music. I use google drive for storage. I use google photos for photo backups.
@onlinepred: Ah ok. I use local file transfers a lot (and find iTunes to be a terrible program) and I also have a fair amount of purchased apps so it always sounded like a nightmare to change over.
It is getting a bit disappointing but overall the pixel 5 is a good device, wouldn't really pay over ~$800 for one. Most people know it's not meant to be a flagship phone anymore life the previous pixels with a price tag of $1500. Not sure why they can't improve the quality a bit more (similar to iPhones) but no doubt they will sell more in the low to medium price handset category. Not everyone wants to spend 1500-2000$ on a phone though.
Was kind of thinking I could have kept the pixel 3 XL and waited for the 6 also, but no guarantee of free full quality photo storage and there wouldn't be any discounts for a while. I usually skip a model and sell the old one whole they are still worth something. The 6 will probably be very similar anyway.
Agree with the comments above, the earpiece and loud speaker are a bit crap, sound quality is weird with the speaker under the screen, hard to hear people in noisy places. CPU is a bit slower than my 3, microphone can't hear me as well with assistant. On the plus side, don't mind the smaller form factor, battery lasts ages more.
Pretty great phone, but isn't the Pixel 6 about to launch?
This or 4a?
wait for the pixel 6, it was leaked yesterday and looks like will be an iphone killer once again…
Not really a bargain price..
Google I/O event is in a few days - new pixel phones to be announced.
Please don't pay this price. If you're not happy with another brand and need a Pixel 5, look on Gumtree.
