Don't!

Why not?

 

I don't see any on Lazada site yet, none on Gearbest either.

On Amazon they are for sale from the UK but very expensive, over 1000$ and then comes shipping/import fee's on the top.

 

I think you will have to wait a bit longer.

 

I bought my last phone (Poco F1) from Lazada and never had any problems.

 

I am also interested in the Google5 but I want the XL, the 5 is a bit on the small size for me.

 

Please keep us updated if you find a place to buy one, thanks.

its same spec as oppo a9, (8GB RAM 128GB ROM) which cost 6800 baht on lazada,

but oppo has 25% bigger battery, 5k vs 4k mAh, so it depend how long you are willing to wait on an inferior phone, and possibly how much the total cost is for that phone,

and how much of a stink it raises for you to run out of battery juice

Well the Google has very good cameras with very good AI technology.

 

Further Google phones are very safe to use, they will get updated as soon as Goggle release an update, other brands are much slower to get it, depending on brand.

 

Oh yes, 5G as well.

 

Both reviews below gives it a 4 star rating.

Uh?

- First you compare a 5G phone with a 4G one. If you need 5G in next years it makes a big difference.

- The screen of the Pixel is far better than the Oppo one. The Pixel get an Oled 430ppi x2340 against only on Oppo an IPS 270ppi x1600.

- The Cpu of Pixel is one generation newer and faster 2.4 against 2.0 MHz

- Etc.

Main point for me is that it's a Google phone. That means quick updates on Android and Google Apps taking the best of this phone. Also no hassle with the many Apps that you can't remove from most other brands.

I already got an older Pixel before, and think in buying another one  🙂

Wait a few weeks until it's actually available, currently it's difficult to get even in USA or Europe, or only for a significant mark up.

thanks for the replies.

 

about the phone itself, I know it is expensive. the poco 3 nfc has MUCH better specs but lacks EIS.

lot of < THB 7k phones can be flashed with Pixel Experience ROM too, but as @Pattaya46 pointed, having Google support is a huge thing.

 

about the logistics; is it possible to buy it -for instance- on google AU? is there a recommended PO Box?

 

thanks!
