Google Pixel 5 Review

Score: 89 / 100

Google Pixel 5 is a breath-taking cellphone released in 2020, with a 6" screen, a high speed Octa-Core processor ticking at 2400 megahertz, and 2 cameras, a 12.2 MP back side camera and an 8 MP front camera.

Google is offering this phone in two color options: just black and sorta sage. This device construction combines Aluminum and Aluminum . Google did an excellent design job making the Google Pixel 5 weight just 5.33 ounces. Although this cellphone is just 5.7 inches long and 2.77 inches wide, it's still able to fit a a 6 inches display. This phone is very slim and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.31".

Google equipped this cellphone with an awesome 6" screen, and a 1080 x 2340 resolution, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels that compose the screen.

Google decided to sell this phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SM7250-AB system chip, packing an extremely powerful 2.4 gigahertz Octa-Core processor with a big 8 GB RAM memory. This phone comes with an amazing 128 GB internal storage memory and though it doesn't have an external SD slot, it is still enough to store tons of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without worrying about running out of space at all.

This cellphone provides wi-fi capability (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G blazing fast data connection, LTE-A (4G) , a really fast data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a lower speed 4G type) and 3G fast connection type, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Google Pixel 5 comes with 2 Nano SIM cards to be able to to use two different phone numbers and even different carriers.

This device is equipped with two cameras, a 12.2 MP back side camera and an 8 megapixels front camera. this device's back side camera lens has an aperture of 1.7 so it can take detailed photographs even in low lighting situations. It is capable of filming videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 60 fps, and 1920x1080 Full HD slow-motion videos up to 240 fps. The camera also has time lapse video.

The Google Pixel 5 also includes a wide range of cool features like Fingerprint Reader, Wireless charging system, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth and GPS Localization, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Google Pixel 5 features a big capacity 4080 mAh non-replaceable battery providing this cellphone an impressive battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery isn't removable so you can't change it when it begins to live shorter, though with such a big battery you will probably buy a new cellphone before it happens.

The Google Pixel 5 is being sold for about 548 dollars, rather expensive for a device this level. No matter if you will use this phone for work, want it to take tons of photos, want a cellphone to mostly use social networks or will use it as a gamer phone, this cellphone is definitely a very good choice for you. If you buy this cellphone you will also receive Quick Start Guide, 18W USB-C power adapter, 1 m USB-C to USB-C cable (USB 2.0), SIM tool and Quick Switch Adapter.
