    Each year, they seem to be coming up with bigger and uglier camera bumps.



    https://www.slashgear.com/pixel-5-pr...pine-16609962/

    When the pixel 4 photos were first leaked, I was convinced that it was too ugly for me to buy one. I ended up tolerating it and got one.

    But the new camera bump on Pixel 5 is quite a bit more, too much in my opinion.

    What do you think?

    As of right now looking at that pic being a possible design . Im not wild over it.

    I would like to see the other 2 possible designs to compare. Too early to say which they will actually go with yet.

    I'm going to be very happy with my new 4XL. But yes, that camera bump is huge.

    I dislike that p5 camera bump as well, but I love the way the p4 looks small square and looks clean. However the more cameras manufactures add to s phone the uglier the rear gets and nothing we can do about it unless they made the phone as thick as the bump which I probably wouldn't mind "I think" as long as the battery would be super large. But that p5 render camera bump I'd terrible. They should keep it round, square or kind of like some older Samsung/huwaei phones.

    I love the 4 I think it looks great. I do hope they don't go with that shape for the 5.

    I don't understand why it has to drop from the top. Why can't it just be a big circle?

    If this is the real thing, I honestly don't see what the big deal is. "Ugly" is such a subjective term, and I don't get how one way of grouping multiple lenses and sensors together is any better or worse than another.

    I don't like it but I do like it better than the s20. I have a feeling the next pixel will get me to leave my pixel 3xl. But if not I'll be praying that the next note doesn't look like the s20 lol.

    Also....gotta distinguish somehow from all the long rectangles with small rectangles on the back.

    Google tends to follow the competing iPhone looks wise..... they have since the beginning. I guess they figure it somehow helps sales being the "iPhone" of the Android world. So the 5 will probably once again resemble an iPhone. Which means hopefully it won't be too ugly lol.

    I really hope this isn’t true.

    What’s wrong with the Google Pixel team? First they refuse to join the multi-camera trend with the Pixel 3, use a tiny battery and a 90hz display that doesn’t always work on the Pixel 4, and now this?

    Meh I'm never one to overreact and every phone I have had till now, Pixel or other I have no issues with how it looks. It'll be same with this if it turns out to look like this.

    I don't trust the rumor or the source of it. I don't think the phone will look like that.

    Pixel 5 leak photo-heres-what-google-pixel-5-xl-could-look-like.jpg

    I personally like the front of the Pixel 4 XL, so if they can get the Soli top bezel to be a bit smaller, great.

    But the back... oh dear. I sure hope the other competing designs are better than this...


    I also read this morning that Verizon may drop Pixel devices due to poor sales. To be honest, I hope there's some truth to that. Google needs to really wake up and stop pretending that hardware doesn't matter. They can champion software while still putting in good specs and an attractive design. They don't have to go all "Ultra" on us, but at least keep up with the competition
    UPDATE: Verizon debunked this.

    They just put the notch on the wrong side of the device.

    Everyone wants better cameras on these phones every year. If so, you have to deal with ugly. More sensors, more space needed. I’m not sure what you want them to do.

    I agree. I don't know what they want the back of the phone to look like.

    You bring up a valid point. Manufacturers are working hard to meet our needs - sometimes that may mean a bigger camera bump! I guess we'll see what happens with the Pixel 5.
