Should I buy a used Google Pixel 5?
The 6.0-inch display featured on the Pixel 5 is a standout feature, with a bright, crisp, OLED panel that is full of contrast and a high definition 1080 x 2340 resolution. The refresh rate of the screen is 60Hz, the industry standard sure to deliver an optimum level of smoothness when using the device.
The battery in the Pixel 5 is an impressive 4080mAh, which is certain to last through a full day of intensive use, even with the high-tech specs included in the Pixel 5. Plus, with fast-charging capabilities, the Pixel 5 can go from 0% battery to a full charge in just under an hour.
Another standout feature of the Google Pixel 5 is the camera, featuring two separate cameras on the rear camera array to choose from: an ultra-wide and wide lens. Ensuring that, no matter the subject, you are ready to capture it. A smart camera app will also scan your scene and recommend settings to use, including a new and improved Night Mode which ensures that even in less than optimum light settings you are certain to capture an impressive image.
Is the Google Pixel 5 waterproof?
The Google Pixel 5, even a refurbished Google Pixel 5, is not waterproof but it is -IP68 dust/water resistant, meaning that the device can be submerged in water up to 1.5m for 30 mins, meaning that any spillages or unwanted accidents will not result in a completely destroyed device.
Saving money on your Google Pixel 5 through buying refurbished
When purchasing a device graded as ‘Like New’, you can expect to pay more than the same device in ‘Good’ condition, as a ‘Like New’ device will display much less cosmetic wear and appear exactly as new, just without the box. Every Google Pixel device that we sell is fully tested and expertly refurbished; our grading system only refers to the cosmetic condition of the device, and has zero impact on system performance. Those who are seeking out savings, then, must choose the device in a condition fitting for their price range.
Our grading system works as follows:
Fully tested with no visible signs of use, for all intents and purposes a new device with perfect functionality.
Potential for small amounts of cosmetic wear such as scratches while still in perfect working order.
Used product with moderate signs of use/ wear and tear. In perfect working order.
May have cracks, dents, chips and heavy signs of usage, though still operating to an acceptable standard (perfect working order.)
If looking to maximise your savings even further, you have only one storage option with a refurbished Google Pixel 5. 128GB. Opting for a smaller amount of physical storage in your device can be economical as the device itself will be cheaper and cloud services can more than make up for the deficit at a fraction of the price. Google offers a cloud service that provides users with 200GB storage space for just £2.60 per month.
Will my Google Pixel 5 come with a charger?
When purchased from us, your device will come with a genuine Google charging cable as standard. We provide a range of USB plugs for purchase if required.
The Google Pixel 5 is also compatible with Fast Qi/PMA wireless charging, 12W, as well as reverse wireless charging 5W, if the wireless lifestyle is a little more your speed.
