To better understand the offer
- What are the specifications of the Pixel 5?
The Pixel 5 has a beautiful OLED screen with infinite contrasts, with a refresh rate of 90 Hz for an exemplary fluidity. With a diagonal of only 6 inches, the compact format is very comfortable in the hand. Performance is also at the rendezvous with the powerful Snapdragon 765G compatible 5G. The 4,080 mAh battery lasts easily all day long, allowing the smartphone to be charged overnight – with your choice of cable or induction cradle.
- How long will it receive updates?
For Android smartphones, the rule is two years of major updates and three years of follow-up for security patches deployed every month. The Pixel 5 is no exception, but being a smartphone from Google, it has the distinction of being one of the first served. You will therefore receive the different updates in advance. Other advantages are to be listed, such as the simplicity of the interface, without frills, and the invitation to preview the next interfaces, as currently with the beta of Android 12.
- Is he really good at photography?
The Pixel 5 is one of the best in photography, especially at this price point. Its dual 12 + 16 megapixel sensor is very powerful. You’ll never miss a shot with it, day or night, even though it’s not the most versatile in its class. Above all, it excels at clearly capturing a moving target, which is ideal for taking pictures of your children or pets, for example. There are also some interesting features, such as the Night sight (night vision) for night portraits, or the mode Cinematic Pan, to produce a dramatic effect in slow motion in video.
