    Tempting for such a low price but seems like the only real "upgrade" is 5G capability. From what I read the camera hardware is identical to the 4/4xl and so any camera software updates would be ported to my 4xl as well.

    Anyone going from a 4 or 4xl to the 5?

    The only other true upgrade to Pixel 5 would be reverse wireless charging if you care about that.

    Looks like Google left out the Neural chip also on the 5

    Yep yep I was really about that as well on mine to fight Google this morning. Well, Google just saying that the Pixel 5 will take very similar photos versus the 4 XL.I mean honestly how I have no doubt that it won't take beautiful pictures... But only time will tell!

    I'm sure it will, what I hear is a significant bump in the video department, should trickle to older devices

    you think that'll also trickle down to older pixel devices? I mean that night shot with portrait effect is going to be awesome! Would I honestly do is when I take a night shot mode of myself or someone else, I edit it after the fact with portrait effects with the bokeh effect anyways but having a built into the camera would be nice!

    Well, I got to love Pixel feature drops! Just like the pixel buds! Got to love software enhancements and tweaking! Anything to Make our phones feel new again, and refresh our phones a little bit with added functionality!

    Well since their video is terrible, even a slight improvement would be welcome. Hope they fix the audio portion of the video too but that might be a hardware limitation.

    I mean one plus phones are great don't get me wrong, but the camera still is descent. With the g cam mod it's better, but still not the greatest.

    if they continue to plan on not being the high in the flagship experience and the high-end mid-range space for phones that's a great plan a strategy for them.

    I think the 3XL and 4XL was their last attempt at competing at the high end. Google dabbled in the phone market with the start of the Nexus as a hobby with no real direction and different OEMs. That evolved to the Pixel and eventually designing their own product by Gen 3. They tried but it didn't work out so well and they have bigger fish to fry.

    The pixel introduction was being a high end device, then market changed and they needed a midrange phone , I think they should stick to that both versions , its rough times i understand but listen more to what customers want .

    You know you're absolutely right. I mean the Nexus/ pixel on the phone is always represented in Google's own thing on Android without any software skins. That's Los Angeles to offer pure editions of their Galaxy phones at no carrier reduced price. The problem is that no one really bought them.

    Except that many didn't regard them as high end in the hardware department, just high priced. Only Apple seems to be able get away with that.
