    Not sure whether to keep hold of it and hope for the best or return it and get something else.

    yeah that's what I'm thinking as well. And I'm not even by the pixel 5 just yet. Hopefully there's nothing worrisome or a serious issue here though!

    Not a fun choice to make.

    As of now I don't have a P5 pre-ordered. I think I'll wait until 10/29, release day, and see how I feel then. I'm only 15 minutes from the local Best Buy so I can still get one on release day. Should I still not be comfortable getting one, I'll wait for Black Friday and see how the pricing goes.

    This is the 1st Pixel I have not gotten on "Day 1", at least not through pre-order. I am not at all excited about the P5, this is not good. I'm old, I need something exciting to give me the will to live -

    I wish I was as patient as you sir. Although I am excited for it. I'm old as well if you consider 51 old. I've had them all starting with the 6P.

    With new phones, I'm getting to the point that I'm asking myself "what am i going to do on this phone that I can't do on my current phone." Considering i have the 4xl, there really isn't anything other than the battery life.

    This is the first pixel I'm not excited about.... and that's a shame because I was going to upgrade this year I think it's going to be a solid phone for the money, and a great seller for Google..... and I think this was the direction they needed to go to keep the pixel line relevant. But honestly it's boring me stiff. I guess I should've got a pixel 4xl There goes my will to live lol.

    Sounds like auto brightness is enabled. I’ve never had good results using that on any phone and just turn it off and manually adjust brightness.
    Yeah, auto brightness leaves a lot to be desired on the Pixel 5

    I'd agree with this, I both really like my P5 and am a little bored by it. Despite all the issues and inferior camera my S20+ sitting in my draw currently does look more exciting!

    Factory reset worked, Google Pay all good, crisis averted.

    And I have no issues with the auto brightness, I haven't had to adjust it once yet.
    I lied, still getting the annoying camera message a few times a day. (Google pay still ok I assume)
