I made the switch today from my Mate 20 Pro to the Pixel 5. I can't rely on the Huawei to continue to get updates and I don't want the worry or hassle dealing with it. I am really enjoying the Pixel 5 so far, no gap with my Sage Green. The standard Android is really nice.

There are ways to add your own music to Spotify but not with music purchased through other vendors. You can do it with files ripped from CD's or the like. I will see if I can dig out the steps I used but it essentially comes down to adding the files from your computer or server to a playlist and then uploading the playlist. I was then able to have my songs that were originally at home on Spotify. It worked great.

Try following this https://support.spotify.com/uk/using...s-from-itunes/

Import playlists from iTunesYou can import your iTunes playlists to Spotify easily:
First, make sure your playlists have been shared from iTunes. To do this:
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Head to Preferences.
  3. Select Advanced.
  4. Tick Share iTunes Library XML with other applications.
Then, open Spotify and import your playlists:
  1. Click on File in the menu bar.
  2. Select Import Playlists from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click iTunes.
Now you’ll see all your iTunes playlists added in a playlist folder called iTunes.
Note: Spotify supports .mp3, .mp4, and .m4p files. If QuickTime is installed on your computer then .m4a files are also supported. We’ll do our best to match any unsupported local files with songs from the Spotify catalog.

Have had my Pixel 5 for a week or so and so far it's been great. I mean I can't seem to think of a drawback - the screen is nice, the battery is great (went a day and a half with over 6hrs of screen time), the camera is still outstanding, price point is great and of course, pure android.

Coming from the Oneplus 7T, which has the higher specs, I don't notice a slow down but it doesn't have all the annoying glitches my 7T did.

It's taken me sometime to go back to a smaller phone and tbh, I am not sure I love it. I never thought of myself as a big phone type, but at times, I definitely miss a larger screen.

Highly recommended though. I suspect you'd get a similar experience with the 4a only without the nice 90Hz screen. Although the 4a has a bigger screen so maybe that will offset it a bit.

Edit - I am trying to test the 5g. I have found a 5g map of Calgary, but I am not sure it's accurate. Are there places in Calgary to pick up 5g signal yet?

I'm a bit disappointed with the call quality tbh. No issues when plugged into headphone jack or speaker phone but when using the actual handset, I find it a bit muffled or distant sounding? Amusing as most calls usually display an HD icon.

Maybe my previous phone was unusually loud but internal speaker is mounted under the glass and makes it sound a bit off.

Everything else, top shelf. LOVE having a good camera.

Hmmm. Haven't really noticed that. I'll pay more attention.

But yes, the camera and pure android experience sure is worth it.

Keep an eye on the Google store on Black Friday. We got one on boxing day, but you have to be fairly quick. I'm not sure what time it goes on sale, but I think we got it about 7am. It was about 20% off, so worth it.
