Google Changed EVERYTHING With The Pixel 5

Is Google making a misstep with the Google Pixel 5 and 4a 5G? It looks like they're changing their strategy by making phones cheaper without the high-end specs. Does it make sense?

      @withadancenumber just keep in mind though, I lot of phones including the 4a 5g are sealed just as well as phones with IP68 ratings, the only difference is they don't have to pay for expensive equipment to test it. I'm sure a 4a 5g is probably the same if not almost the same amount of water resistance

    The adsence of the image processing chip and the only option of storage (128gb) are a big no no for me. I mean the phone is just great and the general road that they choose to follow for this phone is correct, but those two things will keep me away from buying the pixel 5... Specially the storage is stupid as hell...

    I like your use humor and your personality in your review! I was going to get the pixel 4a 5g bit Verizon was not selling it and I had some Vzw device credits that lowered the cost of the pixel 5. Also, I'm concerned that the 6gb of RAM would not have been enough to keep the 4a 5g sufficiently 'future proofed' with the 765G SoC.

    I had to return the Pixel 5 as the camera was just so bad. I took portrait photos side by side with my Pixel 4 and 5 and the 5 was terrible quality and would not take pics like the 4. The other issue was portrait in 4 takes 2 images so you can see an un-blurred version and the bokeh one. But this is missing in the 5.

    I always use a case on my phones. I would break it almost immediately if I didn't. So to me, the build feel does not matter all that much. Personally I would base my decision on the Headphone jack. I love its simplicity and that it just works without needing to charge or pair anything.

    I will say, as someone who doesn't have the chance to buy new tech a lot, when I got my 3a, it was the only type C device I owned. So having a way to connect it to my laptop and desktop, which both don't have type C ports, without needing to buy another cable was nice. And since it seems I will be getting the 4a once the 3a dies, I still think the little adapter is useful for some of us.

    I would honestly rather a punch hole than an under-screen camera I would even prefer a notch because for some ob seen reason I like having the top bit of the screen taken up by some sort of camera array as the notification tray would be there anyway and I would honestly rather have it taken up by some physical feature than just being empty as for some reason that make me uncomfortable and I also prefer a bit more of a chonky phone as it give me something to really hold onto for example when I am skating and need to quickly check a message or something like that it really helps and it just feels more solid. Personally I thought the IPhone x (apart from not having and audio jack and the now outdated processor) was perfect if not having an ever so slightly larger notch than I would like. The Pixel 4 and 5's bezels both look great to me and I would go as far to say I think the pixel 5 is my new favorite phone

    The radar is working as it should. I use it all the time. Honestly the biggest drawback for me is actually missing the soilRadar. For me it works at least 49 out of 50 times. Yes it was rough in the beginning but it seems that the algorithm uses AI and it learned after some time (or with the monthly updates). Honestly it is a must have if you are a daily driver. Please don't say nobody uses it when massive amount of people are actually in love of it. I honestly don't know how I would get use to not using it. And fingerprint... c'mon are we 2015... last year it was proved how easily hackable are fingerprint sensors. At least for 3D face you would need some kind of 3d molding equipment in contrast to fingerprint where you can actually hack it with pretty common tools(not to mention unlock while you sleep). Do I also need to say how many times I needed and used it without the need to actually touch the phone(at least 3-4 time per day). Just reach for it and look at it and it's unlock with the text(video or app) you are needing and the assistant is in full working mode. For me Pixel 5 is the biggest disappointment of google lineup ever (all of their devices)! And all that without saying how ugly is the punch hole for the camera(because that is really more of a personal preference of the design then an actual usage).

    9:04 Sry is it only in Europe? But the 4a has no wide angle camera and a SD 730G versus a SD 765G. And by the way the 4 had two OIS, for tele and wide angle camerea, what is not mendatory in any phone. Edit: never mind, I did not know that the 4a (5G ) is so different to the 4a. Why are all tech companys doing so stupid naming schemes ?

    Do you think the pixel 5xl will come later as a way to spread revenue through the year, keep the pixel name on the RADAR by making it audible twice a year and maybe slightly update it as a way to guarantee that in case the new strategy doesn't work, the pixel doesn't get a failed reputation for an entire year? Personally I don't think it would necessarily be the case but I'd like to hear your opinion.
