The all new Google Pixel 5 has just landed and it is offering many more features than the 4a as expected with extras like wireless charging and reverse wireless charging which is certainly welcome in my book, the build quality also has improved here but the overall form factor remains the same and it feels really good in the hand and to top it off we also have the original Pixel 5 case to go with it adding extra grip and of course more protection for your device. I have been using this for the last few days but this is just a first impressions and walkthrough of the device and so far I am impressed and the camera yet again delivers exceptional results along with all the new features. If you have any questions feel free to ask in the usual places.. We will have a long term review soon as you cant review a device in a few days properly but check out the unboxing, images and videos so far below.. So far this is mighty impressive and Google have delivered yet again on first impressions over the last few days.
