I will hope the prices drop again like the Nexus otherwise i better have a Samsung Galaxy S7 or an iPhone 6s cause the price of a Samsung Galaxy S7 is 579,- and an iPhone 6s is worth the price of 625,-
I'm very disappointed. Maybe OnePlus should take place as the Android Flagship cause Android stands now for affordable and Good not lower specs and higher prices.
Carlos Miguel, 20 Sep 2016And you may want to go to Oneplus forums and see for yourself how many people are happy with c... morePoint taken, it's the luck of the draw what kind of phone you get. Personally, you stated that your 3 friends got troublesome OnePlus 3's, that's also the other aspect of OP's repertoire - a 50-50 (give or take) chance of getting a trouble free device.
I hope that it's true that their CS is improving, as of what I've read so far (not an OnePlus device owner myself) that is debatable.
.DeadPool., 19 Sep 2016At least Iphone is actually worth the money.That's debatable..
With those prices... I'm priceless now. It looks like those smartphone manufacturers started increasing the cost now! APPLE - SAMESUNG - SONY and now GOOGLE PIXEL! All are nothing but one word "OVERPRICE"!
Wolf359, 20 Sep 2016You may want to google "OnePlus customer support reviews" first...And you may want to go to Oneplus forums and see for yourself how many people are happy with customer support and happy with the phone.
Personally have 3 friends which already had problems with oneplus and they fixed the phones fast.
Of course it only comes to the light and have much impact the controversial cases, but it seems you don't know that. The cases in which the customer are having problems with Oneplus not solving are minimal now. It's becoming one of the best customer support.
You might search google for "HTC customer support reviews" or "Samsung customer support reviews" and see for yourself.
So, if nexus 5x is 350$ in US and 625$ in europe and nexus 6P is 449$ in US and 747$ in europe, we can expect pixel to start at 1000$ in europe?
I think everybody will fit an iPhone in their Pocket or Samsung and Google will lower the price again to 300$ or 250$ and the Pixel XL down to 400$. Just like they did with the Nexus 5x and 6p.
The only thing is that the screen size and the storage. Memory same, camera same, name same, almost everything the same.
I'll wondering what they will do with the Nexus 5x and 6p because i still want to buy one.
Everyone is catching up to apple in terms of price.
Thus better profit margins.
649$ for pixel, if it is true then I'm definitely going with iPhone 7
1. Positioning. Pixel is a premium brand (just look at the Chromebook Pixel). Google wants more margin, thus the brand switch to Pixel from Nexus.
2. If this is US prices, expect non US prices to reach $800-$1000 or so, especially in countries with no Google devices presence (which is a lot of countries).
3. Giving some money for HTC. Let's face it, HTC is not doing well, with their latest flagships being under the radar. They need some cash, and Google will help them.
