This is written by someone who hasn't used the Pixel 5 at all but just heard some things about it and even those were very vague. The battery on this thing is insane. I got 8h15m SOT yesterday and I charged the phone the day before in the morning. The usage was medium to high and it's undoubtedly the best battery I've ever had on a phone. The previous charge lasted me ~17h with 7h45m SOT cause more gaming was involved. My previous Oneplus 6 was giving me maximum 3h SOT with the same usage. So do the math.
