Google Pixel 5 has been officially released, however, there are some flaws. Pixel 5 is not a flagship model as people already anticipated.
Unlike Pixel 4, the Pixel 5 gets off to a bumpy start with potential design flaws and an unexpected “flashing dot.” The specs compared to last year’s Pixel 4 has shown a massive decline in Google’s benchmark.
For example, the Google Pixel 4 had face unlock, squeezable sides, and a literal radar chip. The Pixel 5, however, has a simple rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that harkens back to Android phones from 2017, not 2020.
The company did well by reintroducing the wide-angle feature that went missing in the pixel 4, but it isn’t enough to make up for all missing features from the Pixel 4.
Running Android 11 operating system, the Pixel 5 is powered by the Snapdragon 765G chip, which supports 5G, 8GB RAM, and 128GB storage. Google Pixel 5 houses a dual-camera setup and a fingerprint on the back.

It is equipped with a 6-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 8MP selfie camera in front. The Pixel 5 takes quality pictures especially in the dark, but image processing is very slow compared to last year’s Pixel. Google Pixel 5 is powered by a 4080mAh battery.
Google did not give an estimate for the expected number of full charge cycles from the Pixel 5 batteries. Nonetheless, the typical lifespan of a smartphone battery is at least 500 cycles while maintaining at least 80% capacity
The price of the phone is $700. The smartphone is 5G compatible, high screen-to-body ratio (86.75 %) and supports wireless charging.
