Disappointing about October anyway.
I’d watched his first but after watching a few others, he seemed to be the only one that found performance an issue. Any others I seen were positive on it.

Not flying colours 5 stars but gives warts and all: not a "review" from those glossy brochures in the service provider stores.

Once you’re not expecting 800 quids worth of a phone for under 400 then it sounds pretty much perfect. For my needs anyway.

I think someone said above it won’t be until October, which is a complete joke if true.

Ye especially is the 4a 5g is released then as well. Strange decision.

Although some reports that the pixel 5 will only be in an XL version so maybe google have done this on purpose where they will have 3 variations. Cheaper 4a, then the 4a 5g which will be similair to what a pixel 5 might be and then the bigger offering of a 5 XL.

Still a bit odd all the same

Apparently they’re putting a 3080mAh battery in the pixel 5, which will have a 6.6” 90Hz screen. For a company that’s so bad at optimising battery that’s pitiful.

Ordered mine this morning. Other phones of a similar price just don't come anywhere near camera performance of the Pixel.
Looking forward to it's arrival.

Possibly same shipping date as the 5 and 4a 5g.

Starting to lose patience with my LG V20's battery at this stage and tempted to order the 4a. I know it doesn't have wireless charging, but that's never been a feature that has interested me on any device. Dropped the LG this morning, fell out of the case, back fell off, as the did battery. Small crack in the screen. Mind you, there are new Xbox models on the way too, not that I'm a huge gamer.

Payment came out for my Pixel 4A pre-order today. No change in the order status, still says to be delivered between 9-12 October (I ordered September 10th)

PS: Not a fan of the stock cases but wanted a little colour so got this Spigen case off Amazon to arrive this week, you can change the side button colours.
