Anyone using Pixel 5? If so, are there any issues using it with your model 3? Looking to buy one and checking to see that it works fine before I do so. Wanting to know if it:
-Fits fine in the console without issues?
-Wireless charges fine on a charge pad?
-Phone key works properly?
- Can hear "OK Google" voice commands well when in console?
- Any other issues

TIA

Same here...well, except my older Model 3 doesn't have wireless charging. But phone and car work great together.

The Taptes wireless charger for the Model 3 worked great with my Pixel4XL until the wireless charging broke on the Pixel. Going to get the extended warranty for the Pixel 6 when it comes out, Google seems to have a problem with building reliable QI chargers. My Nexus 5 did the same thing as the 4XL, wireless charging stopped working after a year. BTW I agree that the Pixel 5 should be skipped and that you should wait for the 6 this fall. They cheaped out on the 5 and used a weak processor. I think the reason that they did that wasn't cost, the mid range Snapdragon last year had integrated 5G but the high end Snapdragon didn't. This year they are using they are using their own processor.
