    1. Mrwhosetheboss

      Do you think Google flopped with the Pixel 5? or do you think it still has merit? Slight correction, the OnePlus selfie camera is 16MP not 32! To see my brutally honest opinion about the iPhone 12:

      1. Oliver-Nation

        Wirelss charging (useless) ip rating (useless) 200 dollars less without that shit pls yes

      2. Charles Mathieu

        I still think that there is a market for the Pixel 5. Especially in a number of countries where the OnePlus 8T is either not available or can’t be purchased on a phone plan. The 2 things that would have made the Pixel 5 a more attractive phone is if it had a 6.5inch display and a $100 less price tag

      3. CuriouSteve

        Which one of these are loaded with state run communist spyware software? I can't remember

      5. muntaseer mashek

        Yes and obviously Google flopped with the Pixel 5 because you can buy iPhone 11 before trade in at that price. A13 vs snapdragon 7xx. and look more like a larger version of the first ever iPhone. Plus you are comparing the devise with the wrong one. Try comparing with with iPhone 11 and you don't have to ask other whether pixel 5 is a disaster.

    2. Artur

      I'm going to see if the Pixel 5 Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 4A come in Spain. I do not understand why in Spain they do not sell these models, anyway the Pixel 4A (without 5G) is very expensive in Spain it costs € 389: very expensive the Pixel 5 seems expensive to me € 629, it should cost around € 400 if so a reasonable price for the hardware that carries the same Pixel 4A a price of 280 € would be fair.

    3. Giwan Verveen

      On my last two phones (both just outside the 2 year warranty) my USB-C ports broke, making charging a real hassle, having to position it just right. So for me personally the wireless charging actually nudged me towards buying the Pixel 5 (got a deal for €480,-).

    4. JulesCovers&Originals

      Everytime I try watching this review, I always stop halfway. You always have buts after saying nice with pixel 5 🤣. Love your content tho. BUT, i love my pixel 5 more ❤️

    5. Always Creative

      Mr who set he boss is becoming trending

    6. Ero Otaku

      Pixel 4a 5g is the best value out of the whole pixel lineup this year.

      1. DynamicDuo

        Also with stupid chipset

    7. Ciara Johannessen

      I got a 8 t last week and before I had a pixel 2 and I love my new phone! Highly recommend 🥰

    8. Seun Alabi

      Thank you, PAprom, for recommending this to me 2 days after I upgrade my One Plus 5 to the Pixel 5 🙃

    9. Zsolt Lauter

      Did they really promise 3 years of updates? I bought a OnePlus 2 once, when it was their latest model. A few months later they released their next model and in less than a year their last update arrived. I had support for a year, far below my expectations. After all security is essential. About their new phones, fast charging is useless 99% of the time. Wireless charging is way more comfortable than messing with cables. I would expect a waterproof phone for the 8T's price and there is no excuse they still didn't make one.

    10. S k A

      LOL _"Goggle has gone Rogue"_ , Found this funny for some reason.

    11. M PM

      In times of poco x3, poco x2, k30 5g and many having the possibility of gam mod and pixel experience with OTA rom as an example, I strongly disagree about the pixel 5 beeing a good value. 8T in europe yes! Pixel 5 no!

    13. Adithya K M

      You didn,t. Say. About iPhone. Costly. Level. But but when come to pixel. You. Have. All. Negative. Point. Same on you

    14. Mrs. Frugal

      Wow, what a thorough video! Outperforming Marques, that's a big one 😅

    15. guus .p.h

      if the pixel 4 is amazing value, take a look at what redmi does

    16. durden0

      "I don't like making videos about specs.. but here's me complaining about old hardware that has nothing to do with it's actual performance or experience cause the software is so good".

    17. Bin Jaleel Almanza

      why not have both?

    18. blue sky

      Go ahead to use ONEPLUS 8T, so that CCP will CLEARLY tracks and records ALL YOUR PERSONAL DATA!!!!! YEAH!!!!!! CONTRETS TO YOU, MAN!!!!!!!

      1. somofomo

        Google doing the same thing bro.


      Man you just hate Google ( ͡🔥 ͜ʖ ͡🔥)

    20. MadeAUsername

      I've been debating on the 4A and 5 and definitely the 5 isn't worth almost 2x the money. The battery is bigger but it's to compensate for the refresh and processor, some tests show that it has significantly less battery life (the 5 and 4A 5G compared to the 4A). I almost went for the Pixel 5 before I read and watched all that. If the 5 had better camera, better battery that will also overcompensate for the mentioned above, then I would do it! But it didn't :( . I want the 1440p option with 120 refresh on the pro oneplus as well so I might splurge for it. End of the world buy. I'm disappointed with the 5, I was wanting a "okay wow definitely getting it now" but instead got a "ehhhhh now I'm more confused at which to choose".

    21. Ak1ra F

      You know One thing pixel has over oneplus and many other phones Design and size

      1. S

        not many people care about design since you gonan be putting a case on it. Size is subjective

    22. Comparison Khan

      Google is all another game . Their main business is all the way search engine ,their main source of income . They are just maintaining presence in electronics. Hence they always focus on features as they have android (their another source of income ) Pixels really doesnt gives fuck about the look and outer feel and body and all .

    23. Lucifer

      The one plus 7 and 8 phones are just ultra fast simply the best phones on the market

    24. VINNY SEED

      What if I can get the pixel 5 for free with a plan 🤔 also I've been using a galaxy s9 since it came out.

    25. Dare to do. Motivation

      just ordered the oneplus 8t. current phone is iphone I'm curious if ill like it

      1. Coconut panda

        @Dontai C agree

      2. Dontai C

        @Lucifer iphone are far from junk, they’re amazing phones, but they are overpriced.

      3. Lucifer

        Iphone is over prized junk

    26. hdoesYT

      *Laughs in 8t*

    27. CuriouSteve

      Which one of these phones have massive Chinese surveillance software? I can't remember

    28. Fezza Manezza

      Give me an American/Japanese/Korean/Finnish brand over a Chinese brand any day

    29. Guilherme Leal

      compares several smartphones with the pixel in astrophotography mode please

      1. Ak1ra F

    30. Daniel Arroyo

      One of the worst review ever. Truth be told, OP phones have gotten flagship expensive, no wireless charging, no IP rating and OP update for there phones has gotten worst YoY. Pixel has a better camera, better updates, it cost less than the OP 8 series, and much better customer support. This is the reality not a fake, I got sponsored review

    31. Greyson Powell

      4:02 omggg skyyy

    32. Vëňøm_なに

      I swear I've watched this about 15 times

        Dude same

    33. Ella Ocean

      Ugh the 80s😭

    34. StratoPL

      I would go for oneplus, but Im fed up with how big phones are this days. I cant fit phone in my pants anymore :) Pixel has perfect size, but not for this price. I would go for 4a for half of the price.

      1. Ak1ra F

        Fax bro phones are too big

    35. Not_ Ieafy

      High-end phone cameras are just pre-edited pictures because you can edit this picture of the google (7:14) and make it look like the OnePlus

    36. Upd Late

      $200 cheaper for the 4a 5g? Hahaha... only if you didn't wait until Black Friday when it's $350 cheaper.

    37. Tapas Nath

      Maybe a review video of the pixel 5 😀😀

    38. Lin Mao

      Pixcel phone is not competive at all in front of oneplus. The only advantage is it's camera software. Pixel is still too expensive considering it's actual medium-end hardware. I just don't understand why everyone is talking about pixel, I think it's just because it's from Google and everyone talk without thinking at all.

    39. Dean Wilson A.

      Can't get Oneplus on a good deal, so I got a Pixel for half price. I'm satisfied and enjoy a smaller phone. I'm also not a power mobile user.

    40. Boy Dolomite

      the pixel 5 is just boring. you can buy 2 or 3 midrangers at that price; the device doesnt offer much to justify its price.

    41. sebastian ballensky

      dont give a dam what u say the google pixel 5 is the phone im about to buy soon because i just love it so far from hearing about it

    42. jojohaj1087

      The pixel in general is supposed to be a minimalist phone... As someone who is a retailer of phones, I'm told to sell it as a minimalist phone with a great camera. It's the basic stripped down version of Android and makes it easy to learn and everything is all connected to the cloud so you never lose anything. Basically everything is based on the software overall not the hardware.

    43. azatecas

      once oneplus started charging over 500 i stopped payong attention, xiaomi has bevomed the enthusiast brand

    44. Ger Morgan

      Had both, kept the Pixel 5. Its just much better to use size wise and the battery and cameras are way WAY better.

    45. Chosen One 203

      To be fair google is known for much more than their phones. Oneplus is basically only known for their phones. So it makes sense that OP would spend more time talking about their phones compared to google. Oh and the thing Google has over OP is SOFTWARE. I was a OP user and Oxygen OS is pretty good. But I feel like you get the purest Android experience on a pixel.

    46. Ashik Aliyar

      Everyone is just praising pixel for nothing.. is that primium, no never. Yeah it has the best camara processing But the hardware is shit and overpriced..

      1. Ak1ra F

        Overpriced? Yeah ig But despite having cheap hardware it utilizes it far better then any phone to the point where it feels like a flagship

    47. RAY NL

      What you get is a nice 6" form factor. Not everybody is looking for a phablet. I've had some huge OnePlus phones. But now I'm ready for something small.

    48. Docteur Poulet

      Mr Aaron, you should only do on apple products since you use iphone and its products, not Android

    49. 1Up Man

      Funny. I got an ad for the google pixel 5 just a second ago

    50. Marius Mocanu

      Quick question: oneplus 7t pro or 8T?

      1. Ak1ra F


    51. Ethan J

      Wach this video on oneplus 6.

    52. Mr A

      One Plus phones break very easily with the glass back, I have been through multiple. I went the Pixel 5 recently purely because it is plastic backed

    53. Sourav Saha

      Brother i need a phone .. please.. I have no money I love you

    54. MB

      Happy with my pixel 4a 5g

    55. RegularEverydayNormalGuy

      The camera in the 8T is really bad. I have the 8T now, I compared it to my old oneplus 3 and my old phone taking way more detailed photos with better colors (same results with gcam).

    56. Mohammad Rehan

      Google pixel 5 is a flagship phone?????!!!!! Google sucks

    57. GTS Alpha

      LMAO my dad bought a google pixel 5 but he doesnt play games as much.

    58. Ardis Hobart

      Why do people still care about curved edges? Phones are thin enough that they don't need the illusion of thinness anymore and flat glass plays much more nicely with screen protectors. Far as I know, edge gestures have been figured out so you don't actually have to go right from the edge either like you used to.

    59. Aaron Sherrill

      Why is your skin so shiny? Cmon man. Video quality is on point, care for your skin.

    61. Tamil News World

      What I feel is Google paid well for u... hope next time oneplus will.

    62. iMadAboutTech

      Nice Comparison as always. I have both at the moment but will be getting rid of the Pixel 5 as OnePlus is better all round. By the way the OnePlus 8T is £100 off at the moment on John Lewis website just incase anyone is thinking of getting it. Save yourself £100 and get it from John Lewis instead of OnePlus website £449 is a sweet price for a phone like this 😀

    63. A Rasol

      Pixel 5 looks cheap

      1. Ak1ra F

        It's supposed to be simplistic. It may look cheap but there's also a black color that looks better. It feels pretty nice in the hand ngl

    64. dontmindme

      But.... My hands are so small I would prefer a 6" phone 😅

      1. Ignas

        Mine's too ,5.5 - 6.2 is maximum , you can still use it with one hand

    65. Abuzada 훃

      2.6k unlikes from iOS users 😂

    66. Anmol

      Only thing i hate about OP nowadays is the fact they're "settling down". All their recent launches suggest exactly that. And the useless extra camera ? Smh

    67. Sean Bennett

      @Mrwhosetheboss A store in my area is running a promo where I can trade my Pixel XL to get half off the Pixel 4a 5G, bringing the price down to $250. I'm still debating between the Pixel 4a and the OnePlus 8T Pro for $750. It's a big price difference, but the OnePlus 8T Pro seems like a significantly better phone. If I can afford it, is it worth the extra money for the OnePlus?

      1. Ak1ra F

        Pixel 4a is equal to OnePlus Nord Pixel 4a 5g is equal to the OnePlus 8 Pixel 5 is equal to the OnePlus 8t Hope this helps If you have any questions feel free to ask me.

    68. dayman

      Google looks more premium and more good looking in general. They're pretty much the same. I just prefer the hand feel and looks of Google.

      1. Ak1ra F

        I agree. Pixel has optimised the 765g very well so it's fast. I'm so tired of this bigger is better trend. Even as someone who is 5'11 this is getting out of hand

    69. Billy The Butcher

      Whenever I try to get out of the apple wormhole, like i am right now, I end up bumping into things like... promisse of 3 years of updates... like it was a good thing... come on man. I want at least four, which apple grants me.

      1. Ak1ra F

        @Billy The Butcher if I'm being honest comparing to an iphone battery would be like playground bullying ngl bcz they have the worst batteries by far. But I can understand selling a phone after your done

      2. Billy The Butcher

        @Ak1ra F plus, I wanna be able to sell my 3-year-old phone, and because it still receives updates and the battery is still fine, the Iphone is pretty much the only phone that has a preowned market after 3 years.

      3. Billy The Butcher

        @Ak1ra F well, not my iphone's battery at least. I'm currently rocking an Iphone 7 and the battery is as shitty as it was when brand new LMAO jokes aside, the battery shouldn't deteriorate to the point where it's unusable after 2 years. I had a galaxy note 8 and it did, but it was the exynos version. The Iphone 7 is even older and it's still usable -- and with IOS 14. I usually replace my phone every 3 years, but I'm confident that an Iphone 12, for example, would last me at least 4.

      4. Ak1ra F

        @Billy The Butcher if we're being honest though you should replace your phone every 2 years anyways as the batter deteriorates by then. Imo 3 years is generous and 2 years is fine.

      5. Billy The Butcher

        @Ak1ra F Yes, but I don't wanna count with demand. I don't want to deal with that minimum. It can get even worse. Samsung's usual is 2 years.

    70. silverisss

      While the OP phone might look better in terms of specs, you kind of have to see what Google is doing. They realized that phones are so good now, that even the cheap ones are much much more than anyone would actually need. So they shifted their focus from "high end" phones to low-mid range ones, so they could sell more. Because lets be honest, if you spend more than like $500 on a phone, youre kind of a dumbass. And big companies are praying on those kinds of people. Noone needs phones that powerful. Most of the reviewers show things that dont actually matter for a normal user. Its just a mess. The worst thing is the american mentality "$1000 phone that i will replace next year? Sure, sounds like a good deal! A console costs more than $500 and i will keep it for many years? No thanks, too expensive". Its not that hard to see why phones cost so much, especially when the loudest part of the world keeps spending insane amounts of money on things they dont need

    71. Gregg Smith

      One plus bloat no thanks

      1. Ak1ra F

        You can delete it easily though

    72. David Gray

      Why do people still care about curved edges? Phones are thin enough that they don't need the illusion of thinness anymore and flat glass plays much more nicely with screen protectors. Far as I know, edge gestures have been figured out so you don't actually have to go right from the edge either like you used to.

    73. Justin20006

      Clearly, a one plus promotion video. I was one of the first to buy a one plus one, and that left a terrible taste in my mouth especially how they handled the software updates, continued glitches, etc. I swear never again to buy a phone with terrible software/ bloat ware in their OS. After i swapped that for the pixel 2 XL, life is simple, enjoying the free updates, security, and great experience.

      1. Ak1ra F

        @Justin20006 I definitely feel like this "review" was not very positive towards the pixel 5 and felt structured as if it was trying to make the phone look bad. He bashes on the packaging despite saying in a prior video that pixel is all about simplicity. He also says this is a bad chipset but I'm pretty sure pixel chose the 765g over the 865 because the chip is less heating overall. I understand pixel 5 is overpriced but honestly it's better then walking around with a whole ass tablet in your pocket like oneplus

      2. Justin20006

        @Ak1ra F that's not comparing the hardware, that's comparing the experience. It's still flawless user experience on the pixel to this day.

      3. Ak1ra F

        You shouldnt be comparing the one plus one to the one plus 8t. They're two different phones from 2 different generations That's like saying androids still have bad cameras They don't Your stick in the past if you think that

    74. If You Are reading This You May Be Alive

      i bet he was sponsered by one plus

      1. If You Are reading This You May Be Alive

        ohh.. thx bud 😁

      2. Ak1ra F

        He wasn't. He explained it in another video

    75. Austin Devin

      The packaging means so much more then companys might think the box can be the last selling point as I bought the pixel 4a

    76. Berre Verhaegen

      If you are comparing the oneplus 8t with the pixel 5 and then suddenly you start comparing the oneplus 8t with the pixel 4a 5G what you really should be doing is comparing the pixel 4a5G with the oneplus nord

    77. vijayan kn

      One plus chineese

      Sir can you give me one testing phn? Iam using samsung galaxy grand prime 8 gb internal storage phone. Please give me one. Please sir

    79. LegendaryStars

      Oneplus better battery life gaming,fnatic mode,65watt and 120hz

    80. Chi-Giet Yu

      But, the Chinese market is not open to Pixel, so in China, 1+ 8T is much cheaper than Pixel 5, even cheaper than Pixel 4a 5G.🤣

    87. SOR23

      I had to agree with this guy that actually Chinese phone really putting the effort for the customer satisfaction

      1. bian丁丁

        @Yosaf Mehmet tdlr, manufacturers are typically not rewarded by producing better products and thus most do not (in the context of Chinese companies 1900~2000s). Now some do since now, economically, it may benefit them...

      2. Yosaf Mehmet

        @bian丁丁 your long paragraph actually didn’t say anything.

      3. bian丁丁

        Here is the thing... There are many reputable Chinese companies in china it is just the economic growth of china has caused many companies to mass produce. There are many good and there are many bad. Researching what is good and what is bad is very beneficial

    88. M FAYSAL CHOWDHURY (Student)

      To be honest the pixel 4a 5g is the sweet spot, It has a better chipset and battery then the 4a but its far better value then the 5. it's basically the pixel 5a that never existed.

    89. Hamlet Golucky

      Why did one plus had such good audio

    90. ayabeihere

      Pixel 5 looks like a bathroom tile. 😂☠️

    91. Abhyuday Jose

      1 plus 8t is better than google pixel 5

    92. AJNova

      OnePlus steals customers information and sells them to Chinese hackers !! I had OnePlus 7 pro and I received an email about a data leak from one plus since then I keep receiving spam emails and weird calls !! Don't be fooled OnePlus is sponsoring all of these videos !

    93. Eddie Harding

      i dont get why most people whinge about phone sizes.. want a big screen? get an Ipad!!! personally I like the size of my pixels as its easier for one handed use when taking calls or searching up information at work. just my two cents

    94. John

      You forgot pure android!!!! Pure!!! I can't stand any other phone

    95. ClumZyFinGerX

      I've been using OnePlus since its first phone. I'd One, 3T, 5T, 6T and 7T. Anyway over the years, I love and hate it. With its motto, "Never Settle". Let me do the complaints! 1) It's getting heavier and heavier, and longer and longer. This leads to the increase of difficulty in putting it in pocket. 2) From my rough statistics, I only charge my phone at WARP charge of 10-15% of my charging counts. I only charge it at WARP charge while I'm on the road. The reason why I don't use WARP charge is it's doing harm to the battery. Is it? 3) In low light, the photos taken from OnePlus weren't up to standard, IMHO. 4) Yes, it promised to have upgrades over 3 years, but it's slow and gets slower and slower than there're more and more newer models pop up into the market. 5) Over the years, there're often unwanted apps installed in the phone.

    96. Luke S.

      should i get the 8t or a samsung s20 fe

      1. azoz alawad

        @Luke S. Trust me I had OnePlus 8 pro and s20. Pixel all the way the pixel experience is such a big different. You will not care about the case very smooth phone battery is amazing, light weight,camera is amazing. I mean this phone higher than my expectation.more than this you will not wait for upgrade.

      2. Luke S.

        @azoz alawad I don't want google

      3. azoz alawad

        Get pixel 5 you will not regret.

    97. Mark Binder

      There is more to a phone than just "price of specs." In my opinion, Google's software far exceeds anything any other Android manufacturer can achieve, since Google actually codes Android. Google's optimization of Android to hardware is the reason Google can get the Pixels to perform as well or better than other Android manufacturers with lesser hardware. Also, Pixels receive updates more often and faster than other Android devices, and this software optimization and update frequency is also what you are paying for when you purchase a Pixel device, and is why I purchased the Pixel 5.

      Okay, not what I was expecting at all! Awesome video btw! Please make a full fledged camera comparison between these too, it would be awesome! 💜🙏🙏
