Can you share where you are seeing this?
mmWave refers to 5g which the pixel 5 is.

Wonder if I'd be crazy to buy this when I have an S10+? I just miss stock Android, man!

Also my OCD really likes the fact that the bezels are totally symmetrical.

Very inconsistent conversions. Seems like Europe is in particular being shafted with the Chromecast price.

The price difference on the 4a and 5 is all down to VAT. Ex-VAT pricing is actually cheaper in Europe.

Yep. All US pricing is before sales tax, which varies by state and county.

Would it be worth upgrading from a S9 to this?
My S9 is perfect, and I already have a pair of Bose QCII, so I suppose I could sell them on

Really just want a new toy

Pulled the trigger on preorder of a black Pixel 5. Was out of stock for a bit last night, but then managed to place the preorder.

Looking forward to November, with the Pixel 5 and Xbox Series X both coming to me around the same time.

Just went to order one, and it showed as out of stock.
I'll keep an eye on it throughout the day, but I can live without it

Also, stupid question, but I presume this phone will work on a 4G network initially.

There's just nothing really flashy or innovative about this device, perfect if you dont have the bose headphones as they are brilliant. Interesting that the Pixel 4 is still more expensive than the 5
