I have an interesting observation about this phone. Of course this may not be true every where, but I just can't ignore it too.
I was at local authorised retailer outlet of Pixel. They had put up demo handsets of Pixels,iPhones and Samsung next to each other. Most of People looking for good handset and willing to pay amount (specially Novo rich),first asked for iPhone. But after looking at Pixels next to iphones,they were curious. And after knowing that it runs Android ( though looking like iPhone) they were happy to buy it.
Interestingly though on-counter person explained about Samsung also, yet 80% preferred Pixels , specially Pixel XL.
In fact Samsung counter had all its current top end handsets ( S7,S7edge and all A to Z siblings with numbers) on display. Yet it was Pixels which attracted crowd.
Makes me feel that Google must have spent time on market research before freezing the Design of Pixels. Probably people want physical looks of iPhone but a soul of Android.
I doubt if any retailer would be able to confirm this observation,since they may never have such specific data in place.and their overall concern shall be more on overall sales rather than such pin point observation.
It will be great if someone has any such or some different observations.

Hence, they are unable to provide with detailed review.
The phone is released for more than a week now. Its strange that GSMARENA doesn't have any review yet. I have the phone for last two days. Its pretty early but i think google did a brilliant job. Yes its not waterproof, and the benchmarks are not what was expected. But when it counts it delivers. The camera is very very good and the performance is phenomenal.
Not goof enough camera..better I buy dtek 60..high end spec and most secure smartphone and good safety

Pixels are going to have tailor made software , optimised for minimal hardware. Same like... morePlus others add bloatware over vanilla android which needs higher ram than normal ones.
Samsungng,LG,one+, VIVO,are all examples of bloated Android.that is why your phones stst lagging in course of time,no matter ho high ram you have on board.
Motorola has nearly stock Android. SONY has minimal add one. Xiaomi modifies the Android but it is still lightweight compared to Samsung and others.
expert, 24 Oct 2016too late for google pixel
next year all ram will be at least 6gGB plus sd card.
in other wor... moreNo.

[deleted post]Everyone is not like you, most of them will opt for a cheap sd card and then they will blame the phone that it is "slow".

lmao. androidcentral just posted the most logic defying review in the history of phone reviews claiming pixel is "best overall android phone" even though its inferior to an S7 is EVERY SINGLE CATEGORY and has the same MSRP. Oh they are also subverting the comment section to make sure nobody exposes their stupidity.

too late for google pixel
next year all ram will be at least 6gGB plus sd card.
in other words google pixel will be out of date.
Guys this phone is not for previously Android users. This attempt of google is only and only targeted for iphone sheeps that to iphone 6s and previous versions... because iphone users just feel at home with price , no memory card, like siri google assistance, non removable battery,... I think lg v20 is the most complete Android powerhouse with extraordinary camera, audio and build.
SkyTechX, 21 Oct 2016Really google? Not having Micro SD slot, what a jokeMicroSD is nice-to-have feature, but is not necessary. I survive without it very well.

No more space! Please delete some files, because this greedy phone dont allow MICROSD and want everything from you in our clouds to keep you watched. LOL
Is GSM Arena going to do battery endurance tests on the Google Pixel?
i have 6p as daily driver. all my needs are met. i do not see any advantage to upgrade to pixel. using the pixel launcher on 6p running beta 7.1.1 i wouldnt notice a difference. possibly...
I hope it's gonna cost somewhere around the current price of a Galaxy S7 in my country. This looks like one hell of a phone I'd like to spend my monies on. But the only downside of this phone is that it has a lithium ion battery. They should have sticked to the lithium-polymer ones that the Nexus phones had. Those are the best!
NECo, 23 Oct 2016Can someone tell how the battery life of the pixel is ? i have an galaxy s6 and i have to cha... moreIt has 100mah lesser battery power than the S6 on paper. Having said that, it will last more than the S6 does because of much much better hardware software integration. Hence it should last you an entire day.
