The update incorporates a host of connectivity, camera, and dependability upgrades for the whole lineup, alongside performance optimizations for the Google Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G. These optimizations have fundamentally improved the gaming performance of Google’s most recent flagship, according to recent reports.
At the point when Google carried out the first stable Android 11 release for its Pixel gadgets, a few clients saw that the graphics benchmark numbers essentially declined following the update. According to HotHardware’s testing, the Pixel 4 XL and Pixel 4a took a major hit in graphical performance.
Since the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G launched with Android 11 pre-installed, we had no real way to verify if the phones additionally suffered a comparative issue.
Nonetheless, Anandtech noticed that the Pixel 5 vastly underperformed comparative gadgets featuring the Snapdragon 765G chip. This persuaded that the Android 11 update was the culprit.
