Google’s flagships have had slightly lower performance than their direct competitors before, although they’ve always used flagship platforms. This year, the Pixel 5 received a mid-range Snapdragon 765G SoC, but the tests have revealed that the smartphone is much slower than other models that use the same chip.
Google Pixel 5 multi-core and GPU test results are disappointing
In single-threaded mode, the Google Pixel 5 works fine, delivering the expected performance. However, the multi-core benchmark results and GPU performance are disappointing. Reviewers point out that in terms of performance, it is closer to smartphones based on the Snapdragon 710.
During the tests, the device was also tried to cool down to eliminate the possibility of the effect of overheating on the result, but nothing changed.
In the end, the reviewers noted that the Pixel 5 has excellent battery life against the background of not very high performance. Google probably thinks that for many this parameter is much more important than the maximum theoretical performance.
Google Pixel 5 DXOMARK scores are finally here!
When it comes to Pixel devices, the foremost attraction for the consumer has always been the camera performance. The secondary, on the other hand, has to be the stock Android experience with no bloatware. Unlike the previous year, Google this time decided to shuffle things a bit. The search engine giant launched an affordable Pixel 4a in both 4G and 5G variants and moved its top-end Pixel 5 offering to the mid-range segment.
In order to do that, the Pixel maker has indeed cut down on various aspects such as processor and camera. For the camera department, Pixel 5 comes with a dual setup on the rear featuring a 12.2MP primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture and a secondary 16MP ultrawide lens with f/2.2 aperture. The primary lens is the same one that can be found in the previous-gen Pixel 4. For the secondary sensor, Google this time went with the ultrawide lens instead of the telephoto one found in the predecessor.
You might be desperately waiting for DXOMARK’s take on the Pixel 5 smartphone. Well, the wait has finally over since the detailed camera review of the device is available.
