Google is Pricing Fairly with Pixel 4a & Pixel 5

by birtanpublished on February 9, 2021

I am actually really excited for this you know Google you kicked me out of team pixel completely justified not even mad because I don't know how I got in team pixel in the first place but even though you don't want to send me free phones anymore you're still taking my advice which deep down means you still love me thank you google but today we're talking a little bit about what Google is doing with the rest of the pixel lineup and if you've been watching my vids for a while it's good moves it's things I thought they should have been doing for a while now let's begin so before we get into the pixel 5 which

A lot of people seem to have forgot exists let's briefly talk about the pixel 4a again which is still not launched it's funny though because when the iPhone se came out there were a lot of comments on my videos about house a lot of people thought the pixel 4a was a better deal that made me believe it was out just because so many people were comparing it to the 4a it's still not out you know I've seen pictures of it I've seen specs for it I've seen advertisements for it somehow and yet at the same time it's not been announced it's been pushed back several times

Apparently now it's not gonna get launched until mid July why are they waiting so long I don't know but anyway the rumored price point of the pixel for a I think is extremely competitive because more recent reports are saying it's gonna start at $350 I think that's a real good deal for what you're getting I mean the CPU obviously is not gonna be great it's only gonna have one camera the battery life probably won't be great you likely won't be getting things like water resistance or wireless charging but it's kind of the polar opposite of the iPhone se instead of dumbing down

The display and just focusing on the CPU software support wireless charging water resistance Google's kind of prioritizing everything that s ii did not prioritize while still coming in at a lower starting price so i don't even think the markets compete that much because it really will just come down to iOS versus android for most people but the display on the foray looks like the best display on any pixel phone almost ever just looking at years past with notches and bezels and chins and I think the pixel for a Inc will be a hot seller once it finally launches in July but 350 dollars

If that price point is accurate I think a lot of people are going to buy that because I'm sure the computational side of its photography is still going to wow everyone with their portrait mode and they're super accurate colors and everything it's not a phone for me but I think a lot of people will enjoy it so good on you Google I think a lot of people are gonna be happy about that and now let's talk about the pixel 5 which appears to not be doing what previous pixel flagships have been doing so thanks to some early developer code a lot of people have been reporting that

The pixel 5 this year will not be rocking the snapdragon 865 which is kind of the default everyone expects your flagship from Android who be rocking the highest performing chip that 865 because that's what oneplus has that's what Samsung has sounds like Google might be opting out of the flagship market this year which is what I've been saying they should be doing it ever since the pixel 3a launch and I reviewed that thing I thought it was pretty good for the price you know you get what you pay for but if Google's saying you know what we can't really compete with the iPhone and

Samsung and oneplus maybe we should just prioritize on making more affordable Hardware yes Google this is where you shine you know it's the Google home Mini that does well not the Google home max it's the pixel 3a that everyone loved not the pixel 3 so hearing this makes me very excited now we got a early design league from from page tech of the triple camera set up on the pixel 5 but that was a long time ago and I'm pretty sure it's not gonna end up looking like that but I think just if they're able to rock a triple camera setup and okay they Rock a snapdragon 765 instead of 865 that's

Leading a lot of people to believe it could be around a hundred dollars cheaper than what the pixel 4 started at and my favorite part of the news they're ditching the solely at radar chip oh my god who could have saw that coming the gimmicky finicky air gestures that everyone was convinced was going to be way better than Samsung's air gestures for some reason and then it didn't end up being that way at all it was just a stupid decision that resulted in the phone not being able to be sold in many markets because of the radio frequencies that solely tip used a horrible idea on

Multitudes of levels they're ditching that with the pixel 5 hallelujah Thank You Google I'm hoping that means that they can shrink down the bezels on the pixel 5 a little bit more and especially if you're shipping a phone like the pixel for a you need your higher priced higher tier it's not flagship necessarily but your more expensive phone should look better than the pixel for a or at least as good because if you're doing that hole-punch out on your 350 dollar phone I think people are going to expect that on the pixel 5 as well but I guess it

Kind of depends on if Google wants to keep around their fancy face unlock they might go in favor of ultrasonic fingerprint readers or a dumbed down face unlock like Samsung has maybe a combination of the two or something like that but if the pixel 5 starts out at $700 this year I think that positions the pixel line up a lot better than they have in previous years because people will not be comparing them to the flagships of our time like oneplus phones and samsung s 20 series although I guess the regular one plus 8 is at $700 play pretty sure regular one plus

Eight would slaughter the pixel 5 no matter what it has on it even if the cameras on the oneplus aren't that great but I think Google needs to slowly make their way down and the pixel 5 sounds like it could be the first step towards that in just making Google's hardware at the affordable Hardware that has really really great computational features and by not having to ship such premium hardware they're able to save money because that was always the hypocrisy to me watching the pixel lineup over time was that they always lacked a lot of hardware features that we expected on

Other androids or even on the iPhone in favor of well you don't need all that hardware when you have the smarts because this phone is smart and it's got Google assisted and it's got great computational features for photography but it would still cost the same amount as Apple's hardware or Samsung's hardware and it was like if you're not going to have the hardware there it should be for money-saving purposes it should not just be because you don't need it and then you charge the same amount because having a dedicated telephoto lens is always going to be

Better than AI zoom which you know Google eventually came around on the telephoto lens but they insisted for so many years that they did not need one and they always changed their mind on things later once again with the soli chip but if this means that by next year all Google phones will start at around $500 or less I think that's better for everyone because that's where Google belongs with the pixel lineup in the mid-range category and they may still do some stupid things and yeah I'll rant about them if they do but from what I'm hearing so far it seems like Google is

Following my advice and I'm very happy to see that because that's where pixel phones belong what do you guys think of the pixel foray in pixel 5 coming up feel free to hit me up over on Twitter join my discord we can chat more about it there this is your up trip here and please check out the Talos a podcast channel we've been uploading all kinds of new video content to that I may not be uploading for the next couple days so there's plenty of content to catch-up on over there I'll see you in the next one
