So dual sim means that instead of ONE overpriced service plan, you get to pay for TWO.
And FM radio, which nobody in the whole world actually USES.
Add in two useless features and it will sell better? Who'd of guessed?

Yeah, that "glass rectangle" really is getting old. After all, everything has looked *exactly* the same since around 2008. Maybe its time for a TRIANGLE?
tomstone123, 10 Oct 2016well the official Nexus line never had SD slot. So this just the norm. "well the official Nexus line never had SD slot. So this just the norm."
Nexus One had an sdcard slot.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2016Which are desirable brands. Google is not a desirable brand and can't command that high a priceHow are fruity or samdung "desirable" brands? Fruity doesn't actually do anything, so it is worthless, and nobody is better at samdung at insulting/attacking/not supporting their customers.
Banutu, 10 Oct 2016No SD slot
No stereo speakers
No water proof
No 6 GB ram
No 4000+mah battery
... more-->No SD slot
Just like everything else
-->No stereo speakers
Yes stereo speakers, look on the bottom edge
-->No water proof
-->No 6 GB ram
6 seems like a very random number. Its not even a power of 2. From 4 GB, the next logical step is to 8 GB.
-->No 4000+mah battery
Well, you could also argue that it doesn't have a 10,000Ah battery. What's your point?
Not only does it DEFINITELY have MULTIPLE DACs, it also has multiple ADCs.
OIS is a complete gimmick. Take it from me, my phone DOES have OIS, it does NOTHING AT ALL.
-->But huge price, go buy it, have fun with it people.
Like many that came before it.
Google ADP1 was $400 in 2008, that was a huge price at the time.
Then the next year Nexus One was $530.
The Nexus S stayed the same, at $530.
Following that was the Galaxy Nexus at $650 back in 2011.
Then there were a couple of years of "cheap" phones, the Nexus 4 and 5, both LG, were $350 and $400 respectively.
Then it went back to CRAZY prices with the Nexus 6 at $650/$700
The year after the 6 was a mediocre year with mediocre prices
But now back up to premium with premium prices -- $650/$750/$770/$870, which really isnt that far out of line compared to ADP1/NOne/NS/GNex/N6.
Maybe next year they'll make a cheaper pixel?
Or you could just go buy an apple, they cost all the way up to $970.

Anonymous, 11 Oct 2016Which are desirable brands. Google is not a desirable brand and can't command that high a priceLol seems like you never had/owned a google smartphone not ever had a custom aosp rom in your phone. If you had it, you would finally realize why google is the only iphone competitor and why we need google phone against apple. Even nexus 6p puts 2016 flagships in a shame when it comes to performance speed test.
does any one know the camera focal length of rear and front camera of this phone?
Killing Nexus line for this mediocre garbage? Why couldn't they co-exist if Google wanted in-house smartphone? All those years building the Nexus bloatware free smartphone line and they come up with this? Not okay google...
Nom Nom, 10 Oct 2016No SD slot
---> apple and samsung have tried this, so it's not new, 128 internal is enough... more-->No, 128gb is not enough, maybe for you, and microsd is swappable easy to access files.
-->yes I'm listening to music on my phones and I want great media experience, and I hate earphones, damages your hearing over time
-->not particularly but for these exorbitant prices these companies are asking, I'm a bit pretentious
-->No, 4gb ram is certainly not enough, OP3 embarrasses note 7 in speed.
-->we don't have 4000 mAh batteries because people are not demanding, they go and sleep in lines for a overpriced phone.
-->again for that price I want everything and more
-->I could give 2 craps about dx0mark, if i recall correctly it was giving HTC 10 Max score and s7 camera is clearly better
-->reply from you and people like this are the reason Apple is no1 and sells a phone where you pay 40% for the brand, why? Because you and others have no demandings, and even more, question desires, "why have that, go buy x for that" etc.

Thank God there is no SD Slot. . . (it is not NEEDED)
Thank God the battery is not removable. . . Why would you want to remove the battery?
Thank God this is one of the best Android phones out there until Yandex begins there adventure first ever secure Smartphone.
We have too many NO in GP.xl :
Radio => No
Dual stereo speakers => No
Dolby Atmos => No
4500 mAh battery capacity => No
Less than 500 OyrO => No
Surely! SD card slot => Biggest No
Left 4us : lovely big bezels & 820 euro!
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2016Too costly Actually, the price is about the same as similar smartphones (like the iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7).
No SD card slot = no go!
No removable battery = no go!
No IP68 = no go!
NO NO NO.
I find it funny how people say it is too expensive... It is a less than $700 phone with twice the specs of an iPhone 7 of the same price... but somehow the iPhone does not look pricey... Humans, so easy to control.
