Google Pixel 5 needs the Pixel 4’s most maligned feature, because of Covid-19 | May 23, 2020 at 11:00 AM
  • One of the Google Pixel 4’s most unpopular features – other than its lacking battery life – was Motion Sense.
  • Using Motion Sense in the Google Pixel 5 to swipe between home screen menus seems an obvious function that would really improve hands-free navigation – this would let you scroll through your app screens without dragging your finger across the display.
  • We can’t think of an easy way to use the Motion Sense radar to select specific apps on a home screen, or entries on a list – but a quick tap of the screen to select an option is still a lot less touching time than actually swiping your finger along a portion of the screen, so this would still reduce the risk of dirtying your device.
