This year’s upgrade cycle is disappointing to spec peepers as Google installed middling spec processor, a bit faster that the Poco X3‘s processor but nothing that’ll win benchmarks. On the flip side, Google bumps the base specs from 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage to 8GB RAM and 128GB respectively — no option for something bigger.
Camera wise we see a dual camera setup that may disappoint those that prefer zoom to an ultrawide.
Another welcome spec bump is the battery, which is now at 4,080mAh, way bigger than the Pixel 4’s 2800mAh.
Oh and you also get a fingerprint scanner back instead of face unlock.
Is the Snapdragon 765G fast enough?
It should be enough for daily tasks and most games but for anything more demanding, it’s slower.
The Pixel 5 will be available for $699 and can now be pre-ordered from the Google Store with shipments starting in October.
