This week, Pixel 5 shipments continued to reach people who pre-ordered the phones in the US. We’ve heard from many reviewers, but now that the Google Pixel 5 is out, we want to know what friend think.
Four weeks after being announced at Launch Night In and two weeks after arriving in Europe, Google Store finally started shipping Pixel 5 units to US customers on Tuesday. Those who opted for expedited shipping even started getting their gear the next day.
Even before its launch, the Pixel 5 was a controversial phone, leaving its predecessors’ top-of-the-line specs behind to find a compromise between premium and price. However, some argue that in the US, the Pixel 5 makes no compromises enough, which looks $ 100 more expensive than the European model, due to support for mmWave 5G.
Leaving aside the “value” argument, reviewers had initially contradicted aspects of the Pixel 5, especially the “bio-resin” coating. While our Damien Wilde says “it feels a lot like plastic but in a really good way,” our Abner Li compared texture to “construction paper”.
Now the phone is in the hands of real people, we want your Think about the Pixel 5, whether you’ve been using it for a few hours or weeks. If you have time, share a review with your initial thoughts on the latest Google smartphone.
