Although the positioning of the Pixel 5’s chip is a reversal compared to the Pixel 4, from using flagship chips to using mid-to-high-end chips, it is difficult for people to regard it as a high-end mobile phone except for the price.
However, the storage capacity of the basic version of Pixel 5 this time is directly double that of Pixel 4, which is 128GB, so for some users with fewer performance requirements, buying a large-capacity mobile phone can indeed be used for a long time. The camera performance of Pixel 5 will still be a big plus. In addition, the 90Hz display makes it keep up with the trend.
It is rumored that the main competitor of Pixel 5 will be Samsung’s just-launched Galaxy S20 fan version, which starts at only $599 and is also equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, which is still the flagship chip.
