I have verizon and I am thinking of upgrading to the Pixel 5. From everything I see, the same 5g bands are in all versions of the 5g in the US. Is there any reason to buy the "verizon version" as opposed to just getting the unlocked version? I know the verizon version will be "UW" certified… but wouldnt the general unlocked version carry the same certification, just without the marketing sticker?
I may drop verizon at some point in the future, so I dont want to be locked to them if for some reason the verizon version wouldnt work with other carriers, but I also dont want to buy the unlocked version if it wouldnt currently work on verizon.
