Google Pixel 5 is my favorite phone of 2020 — here’s why

Since the first Pixel, I’ve used every generation of Google’s in-house designed smartphones. As part of my job I’ll use each new generation of Pixel phone for a few weeks then swap back to whatever swanky flagship I have to hand; usually a Samsung phone or more recently the excellent, if over-the-top, Oppo Find X2 Pro. 

At that point my Pixel will be kept as my backup handset and as the smartphone to take pictures with at events when I can’t be bothered to lug a DSLR around. Whatever faults the Pixel phones might have, they’ve consistently delivered very impressive smartphone camera performance. But I recently swapped over to the $699 Google Pixel 5 and don’t feel like swapping back to a high-end $1,000 plus flagship. No, I haven’t taken a blow to the head, just allow me to explain.
