Everything we've seen of the Pixel 5 so far looks quite promising. Google's latest smartphone addresses the battery complaints of last year's model, adds an ultra-wide camera to the mix, ditches a glass back in favor of an aluminum one, and does all of this with a super-competitive price.
There's certainly a lot going for the Pixel 5, but for owners of a Pixel 3 or 4, is there any real reason to upgrade? It should be a quality handset, but given how similar it is in so many ways, it may be worth holding off one more year for the Pixel 6. Furthermore, with Prime Day giving us discounts on the Pixel 4 and 4 XL for $350 off, maybe it makes more sense to just get last year's model.

Now, we want to hear from you — Are you going to skip the Pixel 5 and wait for the Pixel 6?
