Best Pixel 5 deals of August 2021: Free Pixel Buds, $100 back, and more
Sure, the Google Pixel 5 will be soon upstaged by the Google Pixel 6, but that doesn't mean it's no longer worth purchasing. In fact, it's still one of our favorite devices on the market. Pixel 5 deals can be a bit tough to find at times, especially if you prefer unlocked deals rather than offers from carriers like Verizon or AT&T, but we're expecting to see more discounts as the next iteration of Google's Pixel is released.
The Google Pixel 5 offers a number of solid improvements upon the Pixel 4. Though its predecessor received some flak for its bad battery life, the Pixel 5 includes a 4080mAh battery that's miles better than the 2800mAh battery found in the Pixel 4. The cameras are receiving an upgrade as well; the telephoto lens from the Pixel 4 has been replaced with a standard and ultra-wide camera, along with a new motion blur mode and an audio zoom feature.
The Pixel 5 is also equipped with a Snapdragon 765G chipset, similar to the one found in devices like the LG Velvet and Motorola Edge, along with 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, and a 6-inch OLED Full HD+ display with 90Hz refresh rate. There's even an integrated fingerprint sensor for added security.
Of course, if the Pixel 5 is out of your price range, there are also some stellar Pixel 4a deals available right now.
