The Pixel 5 is Google’s latest flagship phone. With this phone Google is not trying to compete with high end Samsung Phones or iPhones but focusing on mid-range phones. After they saw their Pixel 3a and 4a blow up in markets this is a smart move by Google. And their previous high-end phones like Pixel 3, Pixel 4 were easily under the radar because of iPhones and Samsung Phones.

This $699 phone packs a Snapdragon 765G like the Pixel 4a 5G with same 5G capabilities. But it has many things that Pixel 4a 5G don’t have like an IP X8 rating, reverse wireless charging, 8 GB RAM, Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

It has a USB-C port for 18W fast charging but no headphone jack. It is available in 2 colors: Sorta Sage and Just Black
