Anonymous, 18 Aug 2021There are way better device than a52sI don't consider Chinese phones. After import fees they cost around the same as A52s 5G. After considering their warranty (in short: not reliable), I'd rather pay a bit more and get a polished experience with a decent warranty.

The only reasonably polished competitor I know of is Apple, but their phones are more expensive. And Google phones aren't sold in Europe.

Why the ugly notch and why the pointless rear fingerprint scanner. And when Pixel 6 will have modern under display fingerprint scanner, the ugly notch is still there. In phone business, Google have no innovation at all, just old and ugly tech.

Anonymous, 17 Aug 2021Covered in plastic againReally? In pixel 5 metal body was wrapped in plastic to support wireless charging. This one doesn't have one and it has different size , thus isn't 5 with disabled features either. So I hope , plastc wrap isn't a thing on this one.

Pixel 3 remains one of the best Pixels. I wish to god that with the new chipset in the 6 and hardware that they would have released a version choice of around the same size. There's no 5 and the 5a is a downgrade. Geez, ill hold onto the 3 another year

UD readers are a two-hand affair and an ergonomic nightmare.

Vic, 18 Aug 2021Just another phone from Google nobody is going to buy. Not ... moreWhat a stupid comment. How is the rear fingerprint reader outdated if it's still twice as reliable as the under display reader?

I really don't care about screen refresh rates. But not updating the chipset makes this phone obsolete before it ships. Almost the entire point of yearly phone upgrades is for the new chipsets, for the speed and efficiency. I wish they would just put a Snapdragon 888 in this. That, plus aluminum unibody (I hate glass backs), plus 3.5mm jack would almost make this phone perfect. The only thing really missing would be a new in-house chipset, like in the Pixel 6, so that there could be longer security updates.

Yuri84, 18 Aug 2021Samsung A52s 5G seems like a better choice now. Not sure ho... moreThere are way better device than a52s

Cost way too much realme master and master explorer cost aproximetely same and are way better in every aspect.

For around this price, there's a lot of good alternatives like the A52s 5G, Mi 11i, Nord 2 5G or even the Moto Edge 20 for a bit more. Some of these have much better specs and equally good Android skins.
Google only has a positive in software support with pure Android version, that's very little. Fingerprint in the back, 60hz screen, gorilla glass 3, 18W fast charge?...c'mon Google keep up with the tech...

Samsung A52s 5G seems like a better choice now. Not sure how cameras compare, though.
