Google Pixel 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S20

Samsung Galaxy S20 has been one of the best phones on the market since its launch. Now, it faces competition from Google Pixel 5, which is the latest phone from Google.

Google Pixel 4 and 4XL had a lot of smart features and specs. They also had some flaws, due to which they weren’t sold much, despite getting some solid reviews. Now, it seems that Google has rethought the new phone and came up with Pixel 5, which is quite cheaper compared to other flagships available in the market. It has some compromises too, though.
