Pixel XL vs Pixel 5


Swappasaurus says...

Upgrading from the Pixel XL to the Pixel 5 means getting an overall performance boost, along with a bigger display packed in a smaller overall form factor. The Pixel XL has a 5.5-inch display and measures in at 6.2 (H) by 3.0 (W), and the Pixel 5 has a 6-inch display and measures in at 5.7 (H) by 2.8 (W). The display is also of higher quality on the Pixel 5. You would be getting an FHD+ OLED (2340 x 1080) display with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 that supports HDR and has a refresh rate of up to 90Hz. This upgrade path also means gaining support for 5G networks. Some of the other features of the Pixel 5 include an 8MP selfie camera, a 12.2MP dual-pixel and 16MP telephoto camera setup on the back, an IP68 rating, 128GB of storage space, and a 4,080 mAh battery with fast wireless charging and Battery Share, which allows you to wirelessly charge other devices.
