First hands on - never heard of this guy before but somehow he got a 5 from Vodafone UK.



He is replying to comments too!

Yes very very annoying! It works out more expensive on the UK store though.

It's expensive for a phone with a middle of the mark processor.

Preorder on Amazon UK also. £604 (€666) (extra £5 due to VAT difference I guess). They have black & green.

Only issue with Amazon in that you won't get the free Bose headphones because it's a UK only offer on Amazon.

In Ireland, headphones are available when purchased from either Vodafone or Google directly.

Could you not just use Parcel Motel/Wizard if you need a UK address and still claim them?

I’ve it preordered with Amazon and that’s what I was hoping to do if the Google Store doesn’t release more stock on the Irish site.

It would be nice to get clarity, but it does say "UK residents" only clearly. I expect these headphones will be sent out by an external provider (not Google or Amazon), so you might get stuck in a "computer says no" situation.

Honestly, you could give someone a phone with a SD 645 and the same phone with an 845 and they wouldn't tell the difference.

For me, it's perfect. I don't game on my phone, and even if I do it will be xcloud or Stadia which isn't processor intensive. The phone is still going to be smooth, and have better battery life than with a more powerful chip.

Should be ok. I just checked the terms from Google and it states:

“ This Promotion is only open to individuals with a shipping address in the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland over the age of 18 ("Participant"). Businesses are not eligible to participate in this Promotion.”

I couldn’t see anything that states you can’t purchase from a UK retailer once they’re on the list of approved retailers.

Is there a waiting list that I can join to receive notification when the pixel 5 becomes available again on the Irish google store?

Keep checking the buy now page, it seems to get a few eventually.

Like over a day eventually rather than minutes eventually

If you look on pixel-offers.com/bose it states that Vodafone and Google Store are the only qualified shops in Ireland. Whether they would reject an Amazon receipt I don't know.
