The Google Pixel 5 vs. iPhone 12 rivalry builds up to one of the most severe smartphone face-offs of the year.
That will be a severe challenge to Google as it appears that Apple is planning to introduce the entry-level iPhone 12 for as low as $649.
Let’s have a quick comparison between the two smartphones!
The Pixel 5 costs $699, and there’s a single configuration available for the moment, with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.
Rumors suggest that the entry-level iPhone 12 will start as low as $649, in the 5.4-inch, 64GB variant, which significantly undercuts Google’s pricing.
The model is rumored to be known as the iPhone 12 Mini, though that’s not certain yet. Thankfully, we’ll get more information about that soon!
However, higher-spec models like the 6.1-inch model might cost about $749 or $799.
In terms of specifications, Google’s Pixel 5 looks undoubtedly superior.
However, that is often the case with Apple’s devices – Though they don’t seem impressive on paper, the level of optimization they feature result in top performance.
The screen of the Pixel 5 is notably superior thanks to its high resolution and 90Hz refresh rate.
However, the Snapdragon 765G is no match for the Apple A14 Bionic chipset.
The iPhone packs 4GB of RAM, while the Pixel 5 packs 8GB of RAM. Still, the level of optimization found on iPhones surely will compensate for the hardware limitations.
One of the most prominent problems in electronics is battery autonomy.
In this case, the Pixel 5 packs a more capable powerhouse of 4,000 mAh. Also, the energy-efficient Snapdragon 765G chip will improve autonomy significantly.
Leaks suggest that the 5.4-inch model will pack a 2,200 mAh battery, though nothing is official, as Apple never lists its devices’ battery capacities.
