Weekly poll: if you could, would you buy a Pixel 5a 5G?

22 August 2021
Availability is limited to the US and Japan, so either Google knows its audience or those are the only markets that might care for a $450 mid-ranger.

If a company can't even continue manufacturing products for even one year, Why should we trust their products... No use if this pixel 5a if 5 is discontinued...

Good phone but too big. Screen needs to be less than 6 inches

NO, but as usual I can't vote in your broken polls - trying to force people to install a pointless app just to vote in polls is cheap.

i would have bought if it was released in my country...!

Cameras run hot probably taxing the CPU too much.

Nope I'll buy pixel 5b, or maybe 5c

Now pixel devices would be counted a common phones as they changed thier compact side to bigger where they have competition
I liking lat pixel phones because that was compact from factor but I am not interested in compering as this year pixel turned to larger because we have lots of choices in this segment

I love Pixel phones. But somehow India has never been a market to focus for Google.No idea if these would be launched in India.
I would rather spend some more amount and go for an iPhone.
And other options for me now are - Micromax and Lava. Both are Indian brands and have re-entered the market with stock Android offerings. Of course they may not be seasoned like Google phones but are always better than customized bloated OS offerings.

For that price I can get a much better spec'd phone from other Major Manufacturers or at a much less price with the same spec + more features.

The only problem with the Google Pixel 5G phones is the 5G connectivity. It is useless here In the Philippines, due to compatibility. I hope Google makes a version that is compatible with the Philippines 5G bands. 5G is vital to me now since there’s a 5G signal in my location. 4G LTE seems slower to me now. My iPhone 12 Pro Max and Poco F3 5G internet speed is wow. I am looking forward to the Pixel 6 5G bands to work here in my country so that I can buy it soon.

This is a clear sign for exploitation, it's like you are doing give away to a multinational cooperation with your hard earned money, for that price I am not doing give away.

I prefer my zf2 and the coming soon zf3 on this horrible phone

The only thing that made me envious about this phone is that it has a Gorilla Glass 3 display protection. My phone has a Gorilla Glass 6 and it can be dented and scratched easily in just 2 month of use. I don't like to use a screen protector but current phone forced me to use one.

I would buy for sure, what makes a smartphone great is the software and camera, and pixels have best android and best camera. (If it was hardware nobody would buy iphones :), everybody is buying iphones because there is nothing else working in ios) . Unfortunately google does not sell it in my country.

If they sold one in EU, then probably yes (they don't even sell them in my country, so even if they sold it in EU I would need to import one)

Considering they don't sell it, ZenFone 8 is my only other recent small non iPhone option.

A plastic build, old Gorilla Glass 3, an ancient IMX363, a 60Hz display and Google's horrible new Android 12 UI. My Nord 2 has a more premium build, Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides, a superior IMX766 (with Gcam available), a 90Hz display, a more powerful chip and an awesome UI, for less money.
