Well I wasn't sure. I think the Pixel XL had an 821 in it. I keep hearing about how much better the 800 series of processors are than the 700. The 700 are a mid-range. Like I compared it in my head to the regular Intel versus the Celeron.
I really didn't know, so it was a serious question. I read a lot of posts of people pooping on the processor in the Pixel 5.
There are a ton of Pixel haters out there. I dunno why. Jealous? Paid shills by Apple and Samsung? All I know is that, if you told me that a 4 y.o. gen Core i7 (Kaby or Coffee Lake) ran better than a current gen Ryzen 5 (4500), I'd laugh. There might be room for debate, but not much. Here's a comparison I found of the ARM chips: https://gadgetversus.com/processor/...5g-vs-qualcomm-msm8996-pro-ab-snapdragon-821/
