Google Pixel 5 is not coming to India but if you want, you want to import from US or Dubai but you have to pay customs duty which could make this phone expensive then ever because no one knows, how much customs duty you have to pay. Pixel 5 is priced at $699 which is about Rs 51,610. I know, it’s an expensive phone, so let’s see is Pixel 5 worth the $699 price tag?
By the way, it looks premium smartphone but it’s not because it’s powered by Snapdragon 765G which budget centric processor. Now if you forget about Snapdragon 765G chip then everything else on Pixel 5 is premium.
Is it Worth Buying Google Pixel 5?
Yes, Google Pixel 5 is worth buying because the phone has the best cameras, solid build, and pure stock UI experience. Everything on Pixel 5 looks amazing but when you look at the processor, thing changes a little bit. If you want the fastest phone at $699 then Pixel 5 is not the one you want, Pixel 5 is a camera-centric smartphone with the best Android UI. So if you’re okay with above good performance then yes, Pixel 5 is worth buying but if you want the fastest phone then Pixel 5 is not for you.
As you know, Pixel 5 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor which has 5G support. This not bad processor, it can run every single game and it will give you the best possible result but it’s not the powerful processor at $699 price tag. You can get OnePlus 8T or even iPhone 12 Min or last years iPhone 11.
It depend on you whether you want balanced smartphone or best cameras with good performance.
I don’t have to talk about cameras, it has the best cameras. I know it can very old 12MP sensor but hey, Google is a software company, so they have given their all in. There is nothing to worry about cameras but when you compare 12MP sensor with 64MP or 108MP sensor, there will be a difference because more pixels will give better details in low light. Yet, I would say, Pixel 5 camera is the best.
Pixel 5 doesn’t have the massive battery life but still, 4,080mAh will give 1.5 days of battery backup. In the end, it depends on how you use the phone everyone.
Pixel 5: Conclusion
Pixel 5 is value for money device but if you’re from India then try not to import. The phone has the best camera, great looking design, fast charging support, best Android UI in the world with Google optimization and it’s priced at $699. You can buy Pixel 5 without any doubt, you will love this phone, I mean, it’s beauty.
