Ok.

Well you have fun with that. Personally I think you have to be really REALLY stupid to even consider buying a pixel 5.

Hell.. the pixel 4 is a much better phone lol

You have your opinion, I have mine. There's nothing wrong with the Pixel 5.

I disagree with all those points especially "Stock Android", the only thing I can agree on is it's kind of expensive.

You can disagree but you'd be wrong with the exception of some people liking stock Android for some reason. Everything else is a fact, not an opinion.

Banggood web site has so many 3rd party cookies. Can it be trusted?

If you're going to purchase this do so through your credit card not a visa debit
These Chinese sites are notorious for losing packages, sending defective units, sending wrong products, etc
At least with your credit card you have some recourse. With a visa debit your bank will just tell you to eat dirt.

Mediocre CPU, not bad. There's nothing wrong with the 765G.
But you're right when you say it is ridiculously expensive. Google makes poor quality hardware and then slap premium prices on them. Only enthusiasts can talk themselves into shelling out for thesm.

The Xiaomi on the other hand ... 6.67" display? and what is it about high camera pixel count that people find so intriguing?

Not a good deal. No band 13/66/71 support which means it's useless for Freedom. Only supports 5G NR band n78 which also means 5G is useless in Canada.

For another $100 plus tax with the SPC discount, the S20 FE is a much better buy.

The s20 Fe isn't $700

SPC discount is 10% which brings it to 719 so no not quite, but still the better buy.

Coupled with your comment that pixel 4 is a better phone makes it subjective.

Here is what I see...

Pixel 4 > Pixel 5:
- CPU

Pixel 5 > Pixel 4:
- Camera (most people prefer ultrawide, otherwise main camera is practically the same)
- Display (same 90hz, but forehead bezel < hole punchout)
- Bigger battery
- Cheaper than starting price for pixel 4

I would buy a pixel 5 any day over the pixel 4. The Xiaomi phone is speced nicely, but I would just pay for the Pixel 5 for the optimized Google experience. Yes, some people like the simple vanilla Android experience.

Once you get to that point you may as well just get a Mi 10.

Paying as low as $2 for duties and insurance covers that.
I was hit with duties, bit BG refunded the full amount.
