Pixel vs Pixel 5

Swappasaurus says...

Upgrading from the Pixel to the Pixel 5 means going from the original Pixel to the most recent (as of September 2020). Essentially, this means you will see a big boost in terms of performance and specs. The Pixel 5 feature set includes a 6.0-inch (2340 x 1080) Smooth Display with up to 90Hz refresh rate, HDR support, and Corning Gorilla Glass 6. And due to the slim bezels around the display, the phone measures in at just 5.7-inches high by 2.8-inches wide. The Pixel 5 has a 100% recycled aluminum encasing, an IP68 rating for water-resistance, 128GB of internal storage, a 4,080 mAh battery with fast wireless charging, and is powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor with 8GB of RAM, Pixel Imprint, and the Titan M security module. Also, as we’ve come to expect with Pixel smartphones, the camera is top-notch with the Pixel 5 sporting an 8MP (f/2.0) camera on the front, and a 12.2MP (f/1.7) dual-pixel and 16MP (f/2.2) ultrawide camera setup on the back.
