Google Pixel 5 teardown video offers a bit more context for the screen gap issue

31 October 2020
Overall, the inners of the Pixel 5 look nice and orderly and should make for good repairability.

There must be some magic these things have that just keep people coming back for more, and a lot of people who just wanna bash honestly haven't given a phone like this an actual thought because of paper specs, the operating system, or the fact it's not an iphone and will be quick to judge... Anyone who has an iphone is usually amazed how well a pixel points shoots and you're done. when an iphone sometimes you need 4-5 pictures to make sure it's right, and the quality between the two were so noticeable people were like what phone is that???? How do I get one?

The phone is snappy it last 1 day 8 hours at minimum usually and 48 in some cases. The one thing that really made the pixel 4 a not so great phone with a cell nearly half the size running too much tech. Yeah the 855 is faster but do I notice it being faster often? hardly. The only thing I notice any slight lag in is photos because the neural engine is gone and they're using the soc for rendering and processing photos.

that's like saying: Ferrari isn't a reputable brand, because Toyota sells more cars

Bb Tt, 31 Oct 2020Nothing about this hardware is "crappy". Maybe no... moreNo it doesn't, everyone has mentioned that the combination is slower than every SD865 device, even SD855 device.

That review wasn't full.
You didn't take any lightbox shots.

I've loved Pixel phones but I'm bummed about the crappy specs of the Pixel 5, and no white option. I'm sticking with my Pixel 4 for the foreseeable future.

I find it funny how every year there are these reviews bashing pixel phones yet my experience with them after coming over from OG iPhone user is that they're about the best phones I've ever owned. Never an issue and the most solid software bar none. I've had the Pixel 2xl and now the Pixel 4xl. I tried Samsung and they can keep the bloatware. The true news is that everyone who owns a Pixel phone knows they're great phones and that these reviews are bullshit.

DarK, 31 Oct 2020damn the vibration motor on Pixel 5 is not like the one on ... moreI got my pixel 5 yesterday (coming from 4XL) and I don't even notice a difference in vibration. The internet gets not picky.

Also to some other posts on here, hardware changes have been so incremental lately why bother with higher end and pricier when you can have more efficient, cooler, cheaper stuff. They have the 8GB ram and 128GB storage so that's good. Plus they have "old sensors" but yet still the best phone for pictures according to most reviews. They use software.
