Anonymous, 05 Dec 2020Doubt anybody bought the pixel this year. Seems to be selling well in the UK, especially the green model.

    Mediatek sux, 05 Dec 2020If you bothered to watch this new video, you would see that... moreSorry, you're right. I thought it was the earlier video.

      Of course the display is easy to replace, some of them are shipping with it half out of the frame.
      Relying on just glue to hold anything in is a bit dodgy in my thinking, I like to see proper fixings.
      Not that I plan on buying a Pixel 5, Google always find a way to ruin them - last year it was leaving out the fingerprint sensor, this year they've taken away the zoom lens and fitted a weaker processor - a hard pass for me.

        Lasuto, 05 Dec 2020"Even after inadvertently piercing the back of the Pix... moreIf you bothered to watch this new video, you would see that its actually alive.

          Not an Android sheep, 05 Dec 2020Google should get fined for advertising a plastic back, as ... moreThat's like saying car bodywork isn't metal because it has paint on it...it's a metal phone with a thick outer skin

          Stop crying and move on

            Loyalist, 05 Dec 2020Nice phone by Google but sadly very underrated. I wouldn't say that Pixel 5 is underrated but it is certainly overpriced even having mid range chipset. Last year Pixel 4 has much faster processor, outstanding Face Unlock, very good stereo speakers, proper Zoom camera, dedicated neuro-core chip for image processing, just okay battery life after Android 11 update and.... it's much cheaper by now than Pixel 5. So the choice is obvious.

                Google should get fined for advertising a plastic back, as "metal". Similar to Samsung with their UTG.
                Remember, the thing that you touch and feel matters, no one gives a f*** about the beneath layer.

                      Is this an ad? We knew about the easy screen replacement the first time it was tore down on video.

                        "Even after inadvertently piercing the back of the Pixel 5’s battery (which caused a few sparks to fly) and after an hour batch in acetone, the Pixel 5 still powered back on."

                        No it doesn't. It's dead after he punctured the battery.
