Google’s latest flagship smartphone has landed, and just in time for this year’s Cyber Monday sales going on today. That means that if you’re looking to get your mitts on the excellent new Google Pixel 5, now might be your only chance before 2021 to grab it at a worthy discount, as it marked down right now to $649 ($50 off) for it Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals. And if you’re still curious to learn what makes this 5G phone one of the best buys of 2020, then read on.
While the Google Pixel 5 might not be as physically impressive as other — and much more expensive — flagships such as the iPhone 12 Pro or Galaxy S20+, these phones have always been popular for three main reasons: Their value, their great camera modules, and their unrivaled Android experience (which only makes sense considering Google is the name behind this market-dominant mobile OS). The Pixel 5 delivers all three of these in spades, making it a great handset to consider if you want an Android flagship without paying close to $1,000 or more.
Our review team gave the Google Pixel 5 a glowing review and strong recommendation thanks to its sleek and compact (if not somewhat boring) design, excellent camera module, and sharp 90Hz display. We also liked the fact that it’s 5G-capable; this isn’t exactly a rare feature now — it’s pretty much standard on new flagships — but it’s still nice to see on a phone at this price point. It also features wireless charging and water resistance, and we’re thankful that Google didn’t cut too many corners to keep the price down.
The Google Pixel 5 retails for $699, and even at that price, it’s one of the most affordable brand-name Android flagships that money can buy. However, Amazon Cyber Monday deals are already letting you score this brand new release at a $50 discount that knocks this carrier-unlocked 5G-capable smartphone with 128GB of storage down to $649 for both the black and sage green colors. There are also a few case bundle offers available for the same discount.
