  1. Emersyn Kayle

    I broke my LG G8 Thinq that I have grown to love a lot. With LG out of the market, I was left with the options of switching carriers, refurb phone or a new brand. Tried renewed first and was sent bad phones, twice. Decided to make the leap and try Pixel 5 so I could keep Verizon.
    As we all know, the camera is pretty incredible. However, even after turning off every touch-up/filter feature, the camera automatically softens selfies. I am a No Filter kinda gal and every pic that wasn’t in great natural light looks edited, no bueno. I was also extremely underwhelmed by the capability for motion photos. I have a 3yr old that is a busy-body and this camera just couldn’t keep up with her. The night feature is pretty neat but I think Flash should still be the default and night mode should be just that, a mode. I HATE that there is no photo gallery, just Google. All of my 2500 photos were reorganized by date and lost all of their folders. Terrible. This was ultimately the grudge that I couldn’t let go of. I have learned Pixel makes privacy nearly impossible (yeah, yeah, I know that we don’t really have any but Google forces you to link things with your email)
    Specs are reasonable, more than I need. I think LG sounds better for audio. I also found the Pixel uncomfortable to hold. It is more box-y and the weight distribution isn’t comfortable even though it is a smaller/lighter phone. The G8 just balances in my hand better.
    I can knock to turn-off screen but not to turn it back on, which was frustrating after having that feature for the past 2yrs. The overheat feature is great but pretty sensitive. Ex. I can bring LG into sauna for 20min without triggering the overheat warning, Pixel shut down on me after 10 minutes. Battery was pretty good but I only used to browse not game/stream.
    This is Not a bad phone. There is a lot on par with Samsung and Apple, a lot to love about this phone. Honestly, I will, cough cough, try Apple first before I try another Pixel though, cough.
    I ended up buying renewed G8 and saved $300 returning this one. Hopefully the phone market drops a similar hidden gem before LG stops updating this one.

    Great phone. Really enjoying my first week with it.

    PROS:

    All the pros are fairly well documented online so I won’t dwell too much on them. Loving the 90hz refresh, the comfortable size, the small bezels, the 5G, the pure Android experience, the fast wireless charging, the super quick fingerprint scanner, and the excellent battery life.

    NON-ISSUES (FOR ME):

    I had a few concerns going in which turned out to be non-issues for me:

    1) Gap between screen and body: There were many reports online of an inconsistent gap between the screen and aluminum body of the phone, with an especially large gap near the corner with the camera. Maybe I got lucky, but did not have this issue. There’s a VERY small gap on my phone, but it’s consistent all the way around, appears to be by design, and doesn’t bother me at all.

    2) Speakers: I’m coming from a Pixel 2 which has stereo front firing speakers. While I do notice the lack of stereo sound on the Pixel 5, I found the overall volume and clarity of the Pixel 5 to be better actually. Does it compete with the best phones out there in terms of sound? Probably not. But for my purposes it is more than adequate. I also found the behind-screen speaker for phone calls to be fine. It’s a little weird for the whole phone to vibrate when someone’s talking, but I’ve already gotten used to it.

    3) Old camera hardware: Coming from a Pixel 2 which takes good photos, the Pixel 5 is incrementally better. It’s not going to compete with an iPhone 12 Pro in all departments, but it’s still good even though the main camera hardware is a couple years old. Wide-angle is nice to have.

    4) Midrange processor: I really haven’t noticed this being an issue yet. Granted, I don’t do a ton of photo processing or gaming on the phone. But for everyday tasks it’s totally fine. Definitely faster and snappier than my Pixel 2, and the 90hz makes it all look buttery smooth.

    5) Lack of squeeze-for-assistant: I’m already getting used to swiping up from the corner. Not really missing this feature as much as I thought I would.

    MINOR CONS:

    1) The bio-resin on edges near the screen seems a little rough, and the cutout for the USB-C port could have been rounded a bit so the edge wasn’t so “sharp”. Neither seem like defects, but I used to use my pinky as a ledge to sit the phone on, and now that’s a little uncomfortable. Just an adjustment I’ll need to make. I don’t use a case, so if you’re planning on using one this issue will be moot for you.

    2) Screen viewing angle seems slightly narrow. In normal use this is not an issue, but it it’s not quite as good as an iPhone XS or 11.

    3) No telephoto. I’ve never had one so I don’t know what I’m missing. I think I have more use for wide-angle so it’s an ok tradeoff for me, but it would have been nice to have telephoto too. If you have a Pixel 4 and use the telephoto a lot, this might not be the upgrade path for you.

    4) This is more of an Android 11/app developer issue, but a lot of apps, including some Google apps like Chrome, don’t do a good job of showing off the small uniform bezels on the Pixel 5. You still end up with black bars at the top and bottom in most cases behind the notification area at the top and the gesture line at the bottom. They should really be transparent, especially at the bottom. Maybe that’ll improve with time, but it’s hard to actually appreciate the nice bezels on the phone on anything but the home screen.

    All in all, this is a 5-star phone for me. Looks great, and it’s well rounded. Recommended.

    I’ve just started using my pixel 5, and i kove the camera and the Google android experience. But I’m still watching the battery to see how well it holds. When I’m done with my battery check maybe I’ll give this a five star.

    The best phone till date! Go for it 🙂

  5. Shruthi Sharma

    Great product!

    Phone arrived very quickly & arrived in a “sealed” box. The seals were not Google seals but everything appears new & unused. The box though is for the black variant but labeled Sorta Sage, which I ordered Sorta Sage. Just thought it was odd it came in the black phone box.

    I have TMobile & took the sim out of my old phone & got it in the pixel 5. Everything booted just fine, everything transferred easily & phone is working as you would expect a new phone would. Battery life is questionable though but may be it will take time for the phone OS to adjust to my usage. Phone size is great! Feels amazing not to have a huge phone in my pocket now, worth it with the smaller screen 👍

    Bought and using in India. My model is GD1YQ (US version with sub6 and mmwave 5G). Overall it’s a great phone to use except warranty may not be supported in India. Only glitch is my unit came with little screen gap (as it is already a common issue for many people).
    From usability in India, Jio and Airtel both are working great. Both are supporting VoWiFi and VoLTE. Only problem is Jio does not support Pixel 5 for eSIM (though they support 3, 3a, 4a), but Airtel supports it! But that’s a problem with Jio, not the phone itself.
    EDIT: Got esim working with Jio.

  8. Milan

    The package was in great condition, not damaged one bit.

    I was initially worried that I would get sent a brick, but it’s the real deal alright!

  9. Aman pandey

    Item seems defective or buggy. it’s 50% over priced in India. Doesn’t work as expected. there are many software issues. Camera is the only satisfactory thing in this device. Better go for Iphone 12 for this range.
