Digging your content. On the subject of Google pixel, wanted to get your thoughts. With pixel 6 being redesigned and having a new in-house processor I was thinking about going with pixel 5A until the pixel 7 comes out. Thoughts?
ChromaFox
ChromaFox חודש לפני
@Timothy Hull yeah I ended up buying the 6 Pro. I intend to use the phone for years as the last phone I bought is the Pixel 2 and the iPhone 6 before that, so I wanted to go all out. For the UK Google didn't give me a choice tbh, I was considering the 5 and they said they were going to get more in stock, but then discontinued it along with the 5a and the 4a 5G, so they were only selling the regular 4a just before the 6 dropped.
Timothy Hull
Timothy Hull חודש לפני
@ChromaFoxI've been running the same phone since 2017 a Moto z Droid Force. I was really looking forward to the Kyocera new ultra but they seem to have had nothing but problems. The 5A or the 6 is probably going to blow me away with features and build quality. It's not that I haven't wanted a new phone or can afford it I'm E-Waste conscious and if something is serving the purpose I prefer to just wear it out then buy new. if it was you would you go for the 5A or jump to the six pro which is twice the price?
ChromaFox
ChromaFox חודש לפני
Definitely sounds like a valid option, with Google promising about 5 years of security updates for the 6 and doing so much work redesigning, and also focusing even more on sustainability with recycled materials, I'm wondering if they'll lengthen the release schedules between phones to cut down on e-waste and focus more on supporting existing phones for longer and focus on selling services rather than trying to scratch a profit out of actual device sales, would make sense why the regular Pixel 6 price is such a good deal.

Did you ever think maybe they just had left over silicon from before they made tensor a thing so rather than lose money on that hardware they just pushed something to get what they could out of it and grab a bit more cash before they gamble on their new chip. Which seems to be paying off nicely.

Love the budget cost of 5a, but I love deals. You think 5a price will drop on Black Friday/Cyber Monday? Wait one month, or just click 'buy' now?

ChromaFox
ChromaFox חודש לפני
They quietly discontinued the 5, 5A and even the 4A with 5G here in the UK a while before the Pixel 6 got properly announced, seems like they don't want any 5G competition cannibalising their sales.

contemplating getting a pixel 5 before they run out of stock since all we get is 6gb unless we get a phone that's all ridiculous looking like most new phones.

Rock solid software experience, amazing camera, waterproof, metal unibody, large OLED screen, 3 years of OS support, headphone jack and insanely good battery life. All for under $500. This is THE best bang for the buck, hands down!

Would have bought a Pixel 5A if it was available in Denmark! It's not. So I'm going with a OnePlus Nord 2. It's frustrating when you want a specific phone but you can't buy it in your region.

i've watched alot of your reviews and for some reason, when your talking about android phones, you're very critical about everything....but your iphone reviews are not the same....your very forgiving of apple and their overpriced, boring phones....which you reviewers seem to love......i keep hearing reviewers say that things just work on iphones....well things just work on my pixel but you wont hear reviewers mention that.....just my opinion ........

If they want to make Pixel 6 sell more, it's time for them to expand to other markets. I'd definitely buy a 6a with Tensor chip though, that'll be the dopest budget phone.

The 5a 5g release was perfectly timed for me. I wanted (well needed honestly, I've been running off a gifted obsolete s7 for two years now, ugh) a phone with a great camera that does the essentials and will have support as long as possible as up till now I'd largely used hand-me-downs with limited future update support. I'm not interested in paying extra for the pixel 6 due to my own budget and even a pixel 6a I imagine is going to be around a 600-700 dollar device at a low estimate. I'm very excited for their success though and I hope the pixel 6 manages to compete with the devices it's trying to compete with so that google can keep putting out better and better budget and mid-ranged models for us normies and people who don't want to rely on financing and credit for phones. I see the pixel 5a 5g lasting me 4-5 years with how I treat devices and with the proposed EOL and the care program, but I'd love for them to be successful enough with the Pixel 6 and their own cpu architecture to have tempting budget friendly upgrades to offer me before then.

Well, I just ordered one. The second I saw it was available, I ordered it. I have an old 3a XL that is starting to get tired. One thing I have to say is that even though the specs are just like the 4A that's partly because the 4A was packed with features. For that cost, the RAM and everything is just incredible.

I'm currently using the Pixel 4a 5G and there are things that are frustrating about it. Especially the overheating issue when livestreaming or just living in California during the summer. So the Pixel 6 sounds really tempting. Even this 5a sounds tempting cuz of the bigger battery and waterproofing. But I'm wondering if I should just wait until the Pixel 6a that will hopefully be running on the Tensor chip as well. Thanks for the informative video once again!!!
