I Got Myself A Google ‘Pixel 5’ To Replace My 13-Month Old ‘Pixel 4’ & I Continue Using ‘Google Fi’ As My Carrier.

First & so far ONLY Picture With My Google Pixel 5.
Straight out of my ‘office’ window.


Though I still take as many pictures as ever, & post at least 7-a-day, I have basically stopped using a dedicated camera — though I still have two ‘new’ Panasonics.

So, if my phone has become my camera THEN I have to stay on top of camera technology. While I appreciate that the Pixel 5 did NOT offer much of an upgrade re. the camera, it is still new camera hardware & software. Plus, Google gives me a 24-month, 0% APR deal.

PLUS, I wanted to go back to a fingerprint reader!

2020 was a REAL bad year to have ‘face recognition‘! Why? Masks!

After saying that setting up the fingerprint reader was one of the few hiccups with the new phone. I finally managed but it took quite a few tries.

I also had trouble downloading the ‘Google Fi‘ APP from the ‘Google Play Store’. Other than that, it was a breeze.

Impressed.

So far, so good.

Actually bought TWO Pixel 5s — one for one of my daughters too.

    Looks sharp and nice dynamic range. With a glass screen protector on, the Galaxy S20 fingerprint reader is useless :/ It got an update to Android 11 a few days ago.

      Got some better pictures today. The fingerprint reader on Pixel’s are on the back & the cases have a hole for it. I see you are a Galaxy fan. Our household is split 50-50. 2 Samsungs & 2 Pixels (both 5s). I am a HUGE Google fan (& yes, as with Amazon, a shareholder. I think the Samsung camera might be better but I like unadulterated Android. We got 11 a few months ago. All the best.
