Why you shouldn't buy a Pixel 5 in the UK this Black Friday

Image
Caught between killer UK deals for the Galaxy S20 FE and OnePlus 8 Pro, Google's flagship is a tough sell. The Google Pixel 5 is a great phone. In fact, there's one in my pocket right now. But if you're shopping for a new handset this Black Friday in the UK, you should probably steer clear of Google's flagship right now. That's because the Pixel 5, which stands at its undiscounted UK price of £599, has some serious competition from two of the best Android phones out there. Right now, both the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G and OnePlus 8 Pro have been discounted to £599, makaing them the same price as Google's offering. The problem for the Pixel? Both Samsung and OnePlus can boast faster processors, smoother 120Hz refresh rates and more versatile camera systems. They're both just higher-end phones than the Pixel. The Pixel 5 unfortunately isn't among the new Google phones discounted for Black Friday, unlike the Pixel 4 (cut to £319) and Pixel 4a 5G (£449)

Don't miss the Google Pixel 5's new low price for Black Friday

The Google Pixel 5 may be brand new, but you can already score some savings on one for Black Friday . Right now, the unlocked phone is discounted to just $649 at Amazon which is the lowest price we've seen on it since its release as well as the best Pixel 5 Black Friday deal so far. The Google Pixel 5 offers a number of solid improvements upon the Pixel 4. Though its predecessor received some flak for its bad battery life, the Pixel 5 includes a 4080mAh battery that's miles better than the 2800mAh battery found in the Pixel 4. The cameras are receiving an upgrade as well; the telephoto lens from the Pixel 4 has been replaced with a standard and ultra-wide camera, along with a new motion blur mode and an audio zoom feature. The Pixel 5 is also equipped with a Snapdragon 765G chipset, similar to the one found in devices like the LG Velvet and Motorola Edge, along with 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, and a 6-inch OLED Full HD+ display with 90Hz refresh rate. There's even an integ

Affordable flagship Google Pixel 5 $700 at Amazon Pros Aluminum unibody 90Hz refresh rate Qi wireless charging More compact size Slightly larger battery Cons More expensive for similar internals The Pixel 5 is Google's latest high-end flagship, and it's a lot different from its predecessors.

Google Pixel 5: Everything you need to know before buying

Google's latest flagship is here (and green). Following last year's controversial Pixel 4 , Google is ready to right some wrongs with the all-new Pixel 5. The Pixel 4 introduced new ideas like a telephoto camera, face unlock system, and unique gestures, but it did so at the expense of battery life. This time around, Google's trying something a bit different. Rather than be concerned about having the highest-end processor or five cameras, Google designed the Pixel 5 to be a meat and potatoes Android phone that does everything you need it to do, has all of the core features you could ask for, and comes in at a much lower price than the latest flagships from Samsung and Apple. Whether you want to learn more about its price, release date, specs, or anything else, here's everything you need to know about the Google Pixel 5!
