Did Google play it too safe with the Pixel 5?

Chatting with the AC forums.

On September 30, Google finally took the wraps off of the Pixel 5. It's the company's flagship smartphone offering for the year, and overall, it looks like a really solid device.

For just $699, you're getting a phone with a 90Hz OLED display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G processor, dual cameras, and a large battery with wireless charging. It's a great package for the price you're paying, but compared to what was offered last year with the Pixel 4 series, how much of an upgrade are we really getting?

A few of our AC forum members recently started sharing their initial concerns about the Pixel 5, saying:

Tempting for such a low price but seems like the only real "upgrade" is 5G capability. From what I read the camera hardware is identical to the 4/4xl and so any camera software updates would be ported to my 4xl as well. Anyone going from a 4 or 4xl to the 5?

The only other true upgrade to Pixel 5 would be reverse wireless charging if you care about that.

Same here. If Google doesn't bring the goods in Pix 6 I might look at one plus or the samsung note
