I really love my big screens. Although the soft buttons are nice in many ways, i prefer separate buttons the way Samsung does it. Plus i do not like the fingerprint reader on back!!!!
I wish GSMarena would create a metric for phones with soft buttons called "Effective Screen size" to take into effect the amount of screen space lost by the buttons. I have never owned a phone with soft buttons so would be interested to know if you typically lose 0.2", 0.5", or some other amount of screen real estate by having soft buttons.
I am a dummy. After a minute of googling I found that you lose an average of around 0.36" of screen real estate with soft buttons. In other words, this is comparable to a 5.1" screen, which is too small for me since I am used to true 5.5" screens on my last three phones. And given how large the Pixel XL is, pretty pitiful that it's a 5.1" screen. They should have put hardware buttons on that giant bezel.

Has anybody tried to serve appetizers on the chin of the Pixel XL? After all, for the price and the aesthetics of this device it really should serve more purposes. :)
why Google put speaker in bottom like nexus 5 nd thats why sound is lower by finger when using rotate view.
Pixel XL is STILL a no-show in GSMArena's Top 10 by Daily Interest. :)

The read/write is nowhere near the internal memory. Not even at half. The funny thing? It's Androids fault (and Microsoft for not having native support for MTP on Windows), as soon as you put it into a card reader it aprox. gets the specified speeds.
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2016This is why you never pay full retail price for a phone.Are you working for Google ?;)
Really dude, this phone it's look like Note7 for Google ;))))
I bet, Google will return back to project "Nexus" next year !

Right now I have A galaxy note 4. I was going to get the Note 7 but after what happened I now don't know what to do. Im stuck between the pixel xl or the s7 edge. I might also wait for the s8. Your thoughts?
What is with android phone manufacturers not wanting to put sd card support on their devices?
I dont expect apple to put one on their phones because they're stupid really, but with android, you should not be limited to a fixed storage. Whats the point of utilizing the freedom android offers when you're bound by STORAGE?
