iPhone 12 vs. Pixel 5
Pricewise, this is not a really fair fight. While the $699 Pixel 5 (£599, AU$999) is Google’s current flagship, it lacks many of the premium features we’ve come to expect from brands like Samsung and Apple.
The iPhone 12 price structure may be a bit more complicated because Apple released four models and costs vary between unlocked and carrier models.
And the bottom iPhone 12 model starts at $799 (£799 and AU$1,349) with carrier discounts, which $100 price difference to the Pixel 5 is nothing to smell at, especially as belts tighten during the coronavirus pandemic.
As far because the software package goes, people who are plugged in to Apple’s iOS ecosystem are unlikely to even look twice at a Google phone. And also, the same goes for Android users.
Apple iPhone 12
With 5G support, a sleek vogue, major camera upgrades, a ceramic shield screen and an overall zippy performance, Apple’s newest flagship could be a force to be reckoned with.

Google Pixel 5
Pixel 3 is listed among the best Android phone of 2018. But our impression of the subsequent year’s Pixel 4 and now the Pixel 5 were very similar: cool camera, but not for that price. Still, Google devotees will appreciate the bevy of goodies included within the latest Pixel, sort of a 90Hz display, a bigger battery and a few neat computational photography tricks. And if you wish 5G for $100 less, the Pixel 5 has you covered.
The iPhone 12 made a splash with its throwback design. Apple brought back the flat, squared-off edges. Which differentiates the iPhone 12 from rivals that favor curved sides.
The new flagship also comes in new blue hues, blue for the iPhone 12 and Pacific blue for the 12 Pro. The Pixel 5 contains a more minimalist design, with a hole-punch camera, thin bezels, and a flush rear camera setup.
One area where the Pixel 5 beats the iPhone 12, a minimum of on paper, is its 90Hz screen refresh rate. Apple’s flagship contains a 60Hz display. Having a 90Hz display means the screen refreshes 90 frames a second, making scrolling smoother.
Confine mind that the Pixel 5’s refresh rate is dynamic, very like many other 90 or 120Hz phones. The phone will revert to 60Hz when the upper refresh rate isn’t needed, like when the screen is static, to assist save battery.

As a trailblazer in computational photography, Google’s phone cameras really shine in their software. But as competitors like Apple have improved their software offerings, Google’s hardware has didn’t sustain. The Pixel 5’s camera setup remains pretty terrific though and it’s some exciting new tricks up its sleeve.
Just like the marriage of Night Sight and Portrait Mode for blurred-background shots in low lighting. Other upgrades to the Pixel 5’s camera include a replacement editing mode for light and portrait photos and an ultrawide camera for landscape and group shots.
Processor, battery and performance
The iPhone 12 is provided with Apple’s Bionic 14 processor, while the Pixel 5 has the Snapdragon 765G chipset from Qualcomm. The Pixel 5’s processor is truly slower than the Pixel 4’s Snapdragon 855.
But Google said it went with this chipset as an attempt to stay costs down. We didn’t notice any prevent, but our Pixel 5 benchmark tests did yield lower scores than last year’s iPhone 11.
The Pixel 5 boasts a 4,000-mAh battery, the best capacity of any of the Pixel phones. While Apple doesn’t release battery specs, a recent teardown video showed a 2,815-mAh battery capacity.
Because 5G connectivity will be a serious battery drain, both Google and Apple have introduced some unique solutions to the battery life problem. Additionally, to throttling between 60Hz and 90Hz refresh rates.
The Pixel 5 features an extreme battery saver mode which will severely limit app usage to increase battery life. iPhone 12 introduces a feature called Smart Data mode, which can similarly throttle 5G (down to 4G, or between different bands of 5G). So as to balance performance with battery.
Both phones offer wireless charging (though only the iPhone 12 lineup includes a cool new MagSafe charger option), but only the Pixel 5 includes reverse charging, meaning it can charge other phones and accessories. Spec-wise the Pixel 5 wins in all accept but at the last point, it’s all up to individual prefrence.
