Nearly six months after the release of Pixel 5, Google improved the way the GPU works, making the phone reach the level expected by the Snapdragon 765G phone. The Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G) security updates released in April 2021
We don’t have the Pixel 5 that will be tested, but Andreas Proschofsky of Der Standard revealed Internet news that he believes that the performance of 3DMark has improved by 30% to 50% after the update.Andrei Frumusanu from Anandtech confirmed: “Compared to the published score, its performance has substantially doubled [in Anandtech’s review], And compared with other 765G mobile phones, the performance is still better. “He added: “However, the fact that it took 6 months is sad. “
It seems impossible to increase the performance by 50% only through software updates, but Google is only repairing the bad condition of starting the phone. Compared with other mobile phones, there is still a lot of room for improvement. When we reviewed the device, we called it “the slowest Snapdragon 765G phone in the world” and pointed out that other Snapdragon 765G smartphones (such as OnePlus Nord) can use the device to wipe the floor in a head-to-head GPU benchmark test. The appearance of Pixel 5 is not very good, because it has already faced the transition to mid-range hardware, which means it will be slower than Pixel 4. Benchmarking skills; these numbers reflect the real performance of 3D games, which is very bad on Pixel 5.
Google said that the April 2021 security update also includes camera quality improvements for third-party applications, fixes for problems that may cause startup freezes, and fixes for some missing home screen settings. The update should now be released to Pixel phones, just mix and match the update button.
