    ....and its smaaall compared to what I'm used to. But that is what I wanted. After the past 5 Samsung's looking forward to a pocketable phone, without bloatware and a glass back, and many other things flagships have become.

    Il be back with questions(first pixel) and to report back my experiences.

    I thought the exact same thing when I first got mine, man it's so small but after using it now for a month and putting a hard case on its the perfect size. Loving it no notch pure android with no bloatware. Give it time it will grow on you.

    One of the main reasons I got it was because of the smaller form factor, finally good battery for a small pixel (always got the xl model more because of battery). I've had mine since launch and so happy i decided to purchase it.

    My last phone was a Nokia Icon. I wanted something similar in size. My Pixel 5 hit every check mark of what I wanted. You'll love the "little" Pixel 5. The battery life on it will blow your mind.

    Seriously, I thought the Icon had a big battery. The Pixel 5 is nothing short of a beast. Off the charger since 7 am this morning with very light use today. Only checked my email a couple of times, text maybe 15-20 today and played with a ton of settings. I still have 2 FREAKIN days worth of battery left!

    They really hit it out of the park with the Pixel 5. It's one fantastic all round phone. Proof that the user experience is more important that just hardware specs.

    0 oh, I couldn't agree more with you! That's why Google has sold out a stock on the Pixel 5! It's a great great phone!

    Ok, so my worries were unfounded. I love the phone so far. There is a very small screen gap at the selfie camera corner, but not something I ever would have noticed if I wasn't looking. It's in a case anyway. The earpiece speaker is actually far better than I expected. Not great for music but I never listen to music without a bluetooth speaker. I didn't know some things couldn't be removed from a pixel homescreen though. I planned to use stock android launcher for the first time in many years, but this forced me to install nova like usual. I would prefer if the screen were a bit bigger 6.2-6.3 perhaps. I am getting used to it though and love the small form factor and weight. Battery life is pretty much what I was used to coming from the s20+ as it had pretty good battery life too. No disappointments. Camera is fantastic. So used to samsungs smoothing and everything, the pixel photos look so much more true to life.

    Anyway, just thought I would update and say, you were all right, it is a great phone! All of the important features and none of the fluff!
