Google Pixel 5's SD765G chipset is a serious underperformer

There might be a very good reason behind this decision.

Bodygard, 02 Nov 2020Fail... There's better alternatives to pixel 5. Stock... moreStock Android is the least intuitive and most feature poor version of Android I know of. It's simply years behind every other version of Android in my experience.

The Pixel is a garbage phone. I wouldn't touch it with a surgical glove or even a ten foot pole.

Pixel = 💩🤢🤮 🤮🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮 🤮

So according to these stats the redmi note 10 pro will be better than the pixel 5 except for single core... Funny

Fearghast, 02 Nov 2020TBH It wierd how much faster it feels compared to Xperia 5 ... moreI think it's the refresh rate, and anyway the Xperia 5 II is the best overall phone imo, tho a tad expensive

I'm sure it isn't as bad as they say

Of course it's slower

TBH It wierd how much faster it feels compared to Xperia 5 with Snapdragon 855.

Fail...
There's better alternatives to pixel 5. Stock clean android and good camera are appreciated but are not everything in a smartphone. They should bring down the price, it's overpriced for a midrange SoC that's downclocked or something...

You want pixel 5 for $400?

This isnt even mid range anymore . Its gpu is slower than snapdragon 710. For the price i can buy ROG phone 3 . The build arent even premium. Remember it has redmi note 3 like back fingerprint that are meant for budget phone.

Will this also be the case then for the 4a 5G?

lpl, 02 Nov 2020Who cares?! Stop hating!!! yeah, who cares right? Even if they reduce battery size, even if they downgrade hardware, no one cares as long as its stock android. haha

Who cares?! Stop hating!!!

Where’s the video review

Still stock Android will perform well

I doubt most Pixel 5 users will notice the nerfed GPU performance but that is SERIOUSLY bad. They cut almost half of it, making it on par with Adreno 616 in Snapdragon 710. Battery life and temperature still remains consistent with other devices (source: Youtube) so there's no reason to do it on a midrange chipset when they hardly throttle unlike flagship chipsets. Or maybe it only performs as such in benchmarks? If not, paying $700 for this...meh.

Google ripping off it's weird fanboys. Nothing new here. Enjoy your crap
