iPhone 12 Pro Vs Google Pixel 5! (Comparison) (Review)

by birtanpublished on November 23, 2020

Welcome back everyone time to do another comparison this time around between the iphone 12 pro newly released and the google pixel 5. now both these phones are pretty new they came out around the same month and i can definitely tell you what's very interesting about both of these is that they're kind of fighting for the same demographic but not really the pixel 5 is kind of the flagship from google but it doesn't cost that you know 8.99 or 999 whatever it was this is a 699 phone and it's probably gonna get even cheaper in my opinion and very soon

The iphone 12 pro on the other hand cost a thousand dollars and it's definitely more of a flagship device in my opinion this phone feels better and if you want to pick up either one of these i'll find the cheapest ones on amazon link them down in the description you can get them from there and help support the channel at the same time now side by side you can see that i think the iphone 12 pro is pretty much the bigger phone in pretty much every single dimension

And you kind of get an idea of basically how both phones kind of look like side by side now on the pixel 5 we have a six inch oled panel and it's 1080p and that's actually not a bad panel at all so google did a really good job i think it's better than even like the 1440p panels they made in the past i think as a whole it's definitely not bad you have you know very little bezel around the whole entire panel you have a hole punch display which looks really really good and

For like a phone that's not even technically a flagship but it is it looks pretty good now the biggest asset for this panel as i said before is that 90 hertz refresh rate by having that in this phone that really added a lot more character to this device if it was just the panel itself i think it would have still been okay but the fact that it has that 90 hertz refresh rate makes this phone and that much better of a pickup in my opinion now on the iphone 12 pro on the other

Hand we have a 6.1 inch super retina xdr oled panel and this is 1170 by 2532 so a higher resolution more pixels per inch and definitely i think a probably a better looking display i really do like the 90 hertz refresh rate on the pixel 5 but even with that i still think the panel on the iphone 12 pro just kind of looks better overall that's not to say the pixel 5's panel doesn't look good or you know that it's not good i think it's a good panel but i think the iphone 12 pro probably

Wins in terms of just the overall panel layout so in terms of the front i probably end up giving it to the 12 pro but also when you look at the sides you kind of start to see one of my i guess not my biggest complaint about the pixel 5 but something i really don't like the iphone 12 pro has the flat sides which i really don't care like it's okay it just feels so much better when you fill in the hand like this phone feels really really good the pixel 5 it just doesn't feel that great in the hand you know and

If you own a pixel 5 if you use one you'll kind of know what i'm saying it just kind of feels even though this is aluminum it kind of feels like plastic and even on the back i mean you're getting the frosted glass back on the iphone 12 pro which feels really good this aluminum it kind of feels like cardboard you know so i don't want to hate on the pixel 5 i think there's a lot of you know value in it but there's that was just one thing that i really didn't like the build quality is great

On the front the rest of the phone kind of feels very average triple camera setup with the lidar sensor on the 12 pro dual camera setup on the pixel 5 and you're also getting ip certification on both phones but it is better on the iphone 12 pro you're getting wireless charging on both you're getting reverse charging on the pixel 5 which is kind of cool and in terms of the outside that really pretty much covers it up in terms of software though one is running android wonders

Wondering ios i can't even talk today and obviously you know i've said before like the google pixel lineup is basically the iphones of androids you know stock android it's very you know day one updates pretty much for the most part and it's a very good experience and for android this is like the cream of the crop basically this and i think one plus but this is probably even better than one plus the iphone 12 pro on the other hand is going to be lasting for many many more years on the pixel 5

Natively but there is always going to be custom roms and stuff for the pixel 5 if you want to go that route but i think for now the 12 pro is probably the realistic choice when it comes down to software longevity but the google pixel 5 is still going to be lasting for an extremely long amount of time too so in terms of the software that pretty much covers it up now we'll go and do a speed test between both of them the pixel 5 has that qualcomm snapdragon 765 g chipset an autocore cpu with 8 gigabytes of ram

With the iphone 12 pro has that apple a14 bionic chip inside of it with six gigabytes over him so let's go and see which one is the faster phone between both of these so actually okay i clear all the apps in the background let me go ahead and load up their app stores three two one and you can actually see i've seen this time and time again the pixel 5 did kind of do better in that case i don't think it was like you know perfect or anything it kind of glitched up a little bit but i think the pixel 5

Was actually faster in this case than the iphone 12 pro but the 12 pro as you can see is overall smoother scrolling through than the pixel 5. so that's something that's very important the 12 pro is going to get you a smoother experience right now even though the pixel 5 has that 90 hertz refresh rate now as always i have a bunch of these third-party apps that we can go and get into let's do stack three two one and i think the pixel 5 was faster in

That case the iphone 12 pro a little bit behind it scrolling through and kind of going in and out you can see i think d12 pros i think the pixel 5 was faster there snake burst blocks 321 and again the pixel 5 faster iphone 12 pro shortly behind it and again i don't know why it always glitches up randomly like that i'm clicking going here but i i think this one is probably a clear one or two that one was very very weird in my opinion let's do crossy road three two one

Hopefully it opens up on both i don't have to do something really random on and i guess both of them worked and you can see here and now i did have to put in my age so whatever but i think the iphone 12 pro was probably the fastest one in that case gameplay-wise and it was kind of artists since this one died but let me go ahead and turn down the volume on this phone because it's very very annoying let's do temple run two three two one and you can see iphone 12 pro is faster there the pixel 5

Shortly behind it and definitely the iphone 12 pro is the faster one the google pixel 5 it was behind it by a little bit i think in terms of the bigger games the pixel 5 kind of does a little bit of a portrait job and then the iphone 12 pro from what i've seen and from what i've tested from even the pixel 5 i've been testing this against a bunch of iphones too and gameplay-wise i think this that one pretty much covers that it's pretty much the same exact thing

We do netflix three two one and pixel five actually faster there iphone 12 pro shortly behind it let's do paper i don't have this model of three two one and i think uploading is probably faster on the iphone 12 probably smoother even though the pixel 5 is still doing a really good job we can do fruit ninja three two one and the pixel 5 has been having a weird issue where you can't open it properly and it still has the issue so i really don't understand it we do tank you three two one

And again actually pixel 5 was faster than i was i thought the iphone 12 pro is going to be faster that is not necessarily the case the pixel 5 was faster there quizlet three two one twelve pro is faster pixel five shortly behind it you do really racing three three two one now hopefully it opens it up on both and uh it would be really awkward if it didn't because i don't know what else i'm gonna do and the pixel 5 actually was faster there and the iphone 12 pro shortly

Behind it now i read this report and i wanted to hit on this right after this that the pixel 5 was slower than a lot of other phones or slower than we thought i read this article i think the pixel 5 is actually much faster than we thought in my opinion i thought it was gonna be horrible it's actually not that bad the pixel 4a was slower than i thought in my opinion this one is actually faster than i thought it handled pretty well against the

You know iphone 12 pro now when you went ahead and compared it to the galaxy s20 that i've showed it before yeah the 12 pro the galaxy s20 was faster than the pixel 5 by quite a bit but in terms of the iphones it's actually been doing a pretty decent job i'm actually really surprised and really proud of it actually and the rain management may actually be better on the pixel 5 as you can see it restarted here it's going across the road both of them able to keep it up i think for the most part

There's a little tiny glitch on the iphone 12 pro i think getting into this one okay both of them were able to keep this one in the background so i think i don't really think there's like a winner here i think both of them are probably really really close and i don't really think i would you know pick up one over the other just based off the performance but i will say that pixel 5 did a better job than what i was thinking it was going to do so in terms of speed comparison that pretty

Much covers it up now let's go and hit on the cameras now as stated before triple camera setup on the 12 pro 12 megapixel wide 12 megapixel ultrawide 12 megapixel telephoto with that lighter sensor the pixel 5 on the other hand has that 12.2 megapixel wide angle lens then a 16 megapixel ultrawide sensor now you can do 4k 60 on the both of both these phones which is really cool however i will tell you i think the overall ui looks and kind of feels and performs better on the iphone 12 pro but you are getting a couple of more

Features built in on the pixel 5 there's also a lot of different apps on both of these phones on the app stores where you can actually go and you know modify the camera a bit more but i think as a whole you're probably getting more features from a pixel 5 camera even though this one does have that telephoto lens on the 12 pro now i've already done a camera comparison between this so let's say i've filmed it i haven't really you know posted it yet i don't think and i pretty much found that i won't spoil it but i think the pixel 5's

Camera is pretty good you know there's a lot of capability i'm glad they put an ultra white sensor on here i'm glad they did 4k it's 60 and there's just not a lot to hate on it i mean it's a very basic camera it's a very good camera you know it takes really good photos really good videos um there's just not that much to hate on it however you are getting an 8 megapixel front-facing camera that can only do 1080p at 30 and that's probably a bigger deal in my opinion than the back camera between this

Because 1080p at 30 is definitely not my favorite in my opinion on the iphone 12 pro you're getting not only the 4k 60 on the back camera but you're also getting 4k 60 on this front camera so forgetting about the back camera for a second the front camera is also very very important and i don't think it's like as cool to have like a cool craig crazy front facing camera i think the back camera is something that's more visible so the fact that this has 4k 60 is really awesome you get the ultrawide

Sensor getting that telephoto lens so still a lot of capability and i'd probably say the iphone 12 pro has a better camera than the pixel 5 but i will be dropping my full comparison camera comparison i don't know when it's going to drop but i've already filmed it so whenever it happens i'll let you guys know now ending it off with the battery life you know the pixel 5 has that 4080 million power battery the iphone 12 pro has a 2815 million power battery and from what i was able to see the pixel 5 actually has far better battery

Life than the 12 pro i wasn't expecting it to go there because i you know the 90 hertz refresh rate and all that it's expecting it to maybe be better on the 12 pro but it was actually not the case the 12 pro in my opinion from my test that i've shown i don't know when i'm going to post that either but the pixel 5 actually had better battery life by quite a bit than the iphone 12 pro so to kind of sum up this video and to answer the question

Should you pick up the pixel 5 should you pick up the iphone 12 pro i will tell you starting off with the pixel 5 there are a lot of pros for this device it's 699 i'm pretty sure it's going to be cheaper in a lot of other places too it's not that expensive of a phone it has a very good screen very good cameras for the most part the front camera is a little off but other than that i mean it's a very solid phone battery life is better than the 12 pro performance was almost the same if not a little bit better in some cases than the

Iphone 12 pro and there's just not a lot to hate on it you're still getting ip certification you're still getting wireless charging and it's still going to be supported for a long time because you have that you know google still port it's a stock phone so that's something that's honestly very very important as well but the iphone 12 pro has a lot of pros too i mean you're getting i think a better looking phone a better looking screen you're getting a better camera on it overall

I think the phone is overall smoother even though it's not necessarily faster i think it's a smoother device you're getting better ip certification if you're getting things like face id which is something i really like too and like i said that better front facing camera is something that's very very important to me and you have more storage model options you know you only have one on the 128 gig of the pixel 5. you can go up to 512 on the iphone 12 pro so i don't think i would necessarily go from one device to the other i think the

Iphone 12 pro is the overall better phone but i think the one area that the pixel 5 lacks in the most in my opinion is probably the build quality maybe the front camera but the build quality just doesn't feel that amazing i think the galaxy s20 fe feels better than this phone and that one has like a plastic bag apparently this one's aluminum it doesn't feel like it you know and that's kind of unfortunate i feel like google could have done a little bit of

Better job in terms of the build quality on the pixel 5. that's why i kind of think the iphone 12 pro is the overall better phone i think this one feels better it feels more than like a flagship this is probably one of the most premium phones i've ever felt i think it's honestly probably the better phone but the pixel 5 still has a lot going for it too and if you pick up the pixel 5 i don't really think you're going to care too much about the things i've complained about but if i had to complain about something

Probably the build quality if i had a complaint about something on the 12 pro probably the ram management i don't know why it's you know as bad as it is and also going from the predecessor the 11 pro to this one there's not that many crazy things that's changed but other than that i think that pretty much covers it up like i said if you want to pick these up links are down in the description if you guys have any other questions or anything let me know in the comment section below
