    Anyone moving to the p5? Last month I sold my pixel 4xl for $500 and have been using the pixel 3a for the time being "spare phone". I pre-ordered the green p5 and excited for the specs.

    The only non upgrade seems like the 765g chip in terms of speed, but the 128gb of storage, 8gb of ram, bigger 4k+ battery, reverse wireless, wireless charging, nice small bezels, finger print scanner, water proof etc got me excited and convinced me to pull the trigger.

    How does everyone feel about the phone + $699 price. Fyi after taxes cost $745.

    I'm definitely getting it, just debating if I want to wait for some discounts to kick in. I'm still using my 3xl but it's showing some age.

    I planned to get it - BUT - not willing to wait 4 or 5 weeks for it to arrive. Might as well wait for Black Friday, or Cyber Monday, or some other sale day.

    Yeah this year I didn't see any discounts for users preordering. So black friday deals will be sweet.

    Nope. Pass. The phone belongs in 2018/early 2019. What company sits down and thinks its a good idea to literally take and neuter last year's version. Worse processor, same 2 year old camera, worse PPI, no ip68 rating. Complete and utter garbage. Screw Google for this disaster. Give me a real damn flagship with stock Android. snapdragon 865+, 6.9" display, 120Hz, etc.

    IDC what their moronic surveys suggests. Look at how the S20 and Note20 lines are selling. There's obviously demand for that. Maybe reach out to Apple and learn how to ******* market correctly.

    Releasing these garbage phones just neuters the entire Android brand. What casuals will see with Android is that the creator of the platform is making cheap garbage phones thus the OS must be cheap garbage.

    Lol sheshhh your so angry. I'm happy with the trade off of the processor while the rest of the specs being awesome while keeping the price relatively low compared to other devices whole retaining the google experience.

    At least we have tons of choice this year so no matter what device people decide to get there is a device for every market. Looks like Google is not on the super high end expensive flagship market anymore.

    I do agree though they are always 1-2 years be behind the competition.

    There is no way I won't get a new Pixel

    They could have priced it at $599 for a much broader appeal. I'm pretty sure there will be at least $100 discount come black friday or few weeks/months later there will be lots of deals.

    Personally I don't care about price, I care more about getting it ASAP

    Because I was looking forward to a 5 XL or something more....idk....normal? Hell look at the S20 FE. The SAME price with an 865 Snapdragon, 120 Hz, and 6.5" screen. This pixel doesn't deserve being produced.

    Not everyone needs a flagship phone or wants to pay a flagship price. Personally I use my phone for calls, texting, camera and some social media. My pixel 4XL is perfect for that and it didn't cost an arm and a leg. I do plan on getting the 5 but I'm gonna wait and see if it goes on sale for the holiday season, if it does, count me in!

    Understandable.. I also wish it had the 865+ but for me it's still worth it especially since I sold the p4xl and in a p3a now and really don't want to move to another manufacture bc I like receiving google's AI updates to their phones such as all the call screening stuff, image processing, vanilla android etc. But at the same time a tiny bit disappointed with the chip but not as disappointing as the previous years and thank God for the ultra wide.

    Ok? Not everyone does, but some people like I do. So why can't we have the option to exactly? Samsung only has about 15 phones available and we're stuck with either a budget phone or a low tier phone.

    Lol "We" are not "stuck" with anything. I'm happy with the specs and the price and so we a lot of other people. If you want a flagship phone, go pay the flagship price. No one says your stuck to just a Google phone. Simply find what fits your needs and your budget cause it's sounding like the Pixel 5 doesn't.

    In Canada it is $799 Canadian dollars which converts to roughly $599 USD. Not sure why it's cheaper up here when you factor in exchange. Usually we get hosed up here.

    I stopped buying Pixels after the 3XL, however I totally disagree with your last paragraph. They may not be meeting your expectations, however they are not releasing garbage phones. Even if they were that's unrelational to how good or bad their software is.

    Very disappointed in the this phone. It seems like Google just can't make up their mind about the direction of the Pixel phone. Is it going to be budget or flagship? I vote flagship. I've always said the average Android user has never and will likely never hear/care about Pixel phones. They walk into a store and are told to decide between Apple and Samsung, nothing else matters. Users on here are a small majority that realize there are more than those two brands. Shame, dunno if I will stick with my P4XL and hopes next years is better or if I will need to find a new manufacture, NOT SAMSUNG.

    I read somewhere that Google want done with the soli tech, but it didn't align with the phone they wanted to make right now. Maybe this year they give us their something to tide us over, and next year we get a premium pixel with their own silicone, soli and a pixel watch to match. Not likely, but it would be nice!

    My current plan expires at the end of this month and my Pixel 3 is on its last legs.
    Looking at either the Pixel 5 or the Galaxy S20 FE for my next phone. Still a few weeks away for both, so i have time to research more, but I doubt I'll be disappointed with either - Tough choice, from what I've seen so far.
