    The Pixel 5 seems great, especially at that price. We don't have 5G at all in out area, so I'm not looking to buy one anytime soon. Plus, my 4XLnisnt even a year old yet. But next Spring, maybe.

    6" screen and 4000ma battery? Take my money! :D

    I'm on a Verizon plan, but I'm not sure going with the VZW model is worth it vs unlocked. the mmWave 5G just isn't available in enough areas.

    Yeah agree all these 5G phones really not useful now... If you keep them then future proof..

    Pixel 5: Aluminum back with a hole cutout for the Qi wireless charger, filled in with special "bio resin" plastic. Cool! No glass back, makes me want one.

    It's looking like there is a price to pay for fitting the 6" display into the small body of the Pixel 5. Early reports show that the under screen top speaker and down firing bottom speaker don't hold up well compared to dual front firing speakers of previous generation Pixels.

    Oh well, I guess you just can't get everything.

    I just ordered my wife a Sage Green Pixel 5. Expected delivery around November 5th. Her 3aXL has had some Bluetooth issues after upgrading to Android 11 (and several factory resets didn't help) so we decided it was time for a new phone. I'll come back later when we get it and post my thoughts after setting it all up and getting it running.

    Sweeeet!!! My wife's OnePlus 5T is showing its age and giving her fits. I'm trying to point her towards the P5 as well.

    I'm thinking it's a great phone, even with that 700 series chip. I think Google might be into something here. If it's as good as it seems, I might get one also. But no rush for me, my 4XL is running fine and as good as new.

    Definitely good enough with that 700 chip.. Your 4 XL is brand new still
