Final Review of the Pixel 5 5G Google Phone
As we have seen the Pixel 5 5G Google Phone specifications, it comes with its few pros and cons. While it provides the best RAM that makes the phone execute multiple functions smoothly, the camera doesn’t seem promising, as reviewed by the buyers. Let’s discuss all of them and know whether it is worth it or not.
- The Pixel 5 5G works miracles when the apps downloaded through the Google Play Store are run in the background. Thanks to the huge 8 GB RAM that can handle multiple processes in the environment generously.
- The rich display of the phone makes it attractive to use, and that is one reason OLED screens are a blessing.
- The phone’s compactness doesn’t make it too big or small to be a fit in the user’s hand. Thus, the overall aesthetics of the phone seem to be easy to utilize.
- The camera seems to perform down the user’s expectations as it is just a dual camera, whereas other competitors in the market provide up to multiple cameras with high definition.
- No memory slot unit makes it a task for the user to backup all the data from the phone to the cloud or another mobile storage device to make sure that his phone has space for the other files.
- There is no headset input compatible with the 3.5mm jack. Thus, the user must have headphones that are compatible with C-type cable or Bluetooth connectivity to listen through ears.
- The battery life could have been improved on the Pixel 5 5G Google phone as other competitors provide quicker charging. Thus in terms of battery, the phone seems to disappoint a little.
Lastly, considering all the above factors, the phone sets apart from its features but is slightly on the side of overpriced when paying for the above specifications. If we compare the phone with its previous versions, those stood out to be worthy of the price. Hopefully, these specifications improve in the consequent versions of the Pixel 5 5G Google phone and are one of the best buys globally.
