Could anyone please confirm if Nexus/Pixel phones will continue receiving Android OS upgrades even after 2 years? I thought that was indeed the case. Clarity appreciated.

Herodroid, 05 Oct 2016People are complaining here obviously dont know pure android feeling. Stop using android skin... moreHere's what I opine regarding Google Assistant: If so happens that the Pixel duo does not fly off the shelves, I would start to suspect or expect a better-late-than-never news (accompanied by better-late-than-never comments that goes with it) to appear at some later time saying how the feature could become available on mainstream Android devices via an update (major or minor) or something or how the implementation of the service could make its way to other OS

Stop using android skin... moreIf any one want to experience stock android they can use custom roms based on stock google android aokp cyanogen et, and why would any one will pal 57k just for software, i have been using custom roms for like 5 years thanks to cyanogen and i dont see a point in wasting large amount of money just for software.
Ironmann, 05 Oct 2016This shows that you are a noob as far as Android is concerned. Pixel camera has the highest dx... moreHow "way better"? As in scoring a 1-point lead or managing 3 points higher kind of "better" based on DxO? One could say "better" is a subjective term. If so, then tell me if any of the Pixel duo gets to garner at least a 15.432-point lead from the former highest rated set of mobiles. You might just convince me to purchase any of them sooner. At least, we know now that Pixel already only scored not higher than 1 point from the former highest rated and I could easily cross it off my list, in terms of my subjective definition of "way better" when it comes to DxO ratings. Now, I wonder what Pixel XL could be cooking at DxO. They could remain on my wishlist but not necessarily be transferred to my purchase cart. But hey, no matter how one calls out DxO on how accurate or consistent their results go, it is not the only specific aspect or rating I look for in a smartphone. DxO ratings aren't the sole figures or results I base my smartphone purchase on

People are complaining here obviously dont know pure android feeling. Stop using android skins like samsung touchwizz and chinese junk and give a try to stock android. You will see what you were missing the whole time. Pixel is about competition, yes, price is high, but look what you get: Stock android, Fast updates, Highest android performance ever, Ufs 2.0 storage, Very very good camera, might be the best atm, it has a decent amount of battery, Quick charge, Daydream support, unlimited photos/videos backups, fully implemented google assistant and so on. The main point witht these pixels will be PERFORMANCE which will be the best in 2017 year aswel compared to competition android skins. All these android skin company lacks of performance and updates which is the main thing in the phone. People should stop complaining about cameras... arent they good already? seariously...
Is it bundled with freebies like VRs, smartwatches, TVs, etc. to deserve such a price? Or is the 1-point lead from a set of mobiles which held the former highest rating on DxOMark enough to merit such a price? So long as one could speculate of HTC having a staked interest in the potential profit the Pixel duo makes, one could say HTC might have something to do with it. But at the moment no official sources nor the companies themselves (not HTC, not Google) could confirm or corroborate HTC's involvement with the Pixel duo's development. Who did what? Who contributed this most or that least? It could go down in history and be headlining as some "Google x HTC: The Untold Story" or "HTC x Google: A Story Never Told" article. To be honest, it is So Much Hell of a funny, I'm Shaking My Head!
Nexys, 05 Oct 2016No LED notification, they are imitating Apple, so no fancy led notification. wrong, pixel has rgb led built in the top speaker left corner, similiar like nexu 6p has, so notification led is not gone, google is not applr to remove important things.
i belive google is f____ing up because in the begining was smartphone for every one at zero cost now they are finishing this with smartphones like apple under construction in google "supposedly" they want to sell better than ios and much but their politicts has changed ... soo shame ....on you ... i feel sad because all this is for bussines .... im gona keep as a relique my nexus 4 ..
let's see if they provide the same 4-5 year OTA update update like apple as well, or it's just the beta test like every google product

Gibbs-kamhagh, 05 Oct 2016ehm... calm down dude. by poor I didn't mean not rich. even if you're all rich it's sad that ... moreOk...sorry then bro, i misunderstood. I want to say if any company launches any phone it should be sensibly priced. Customers should not be burdened with extra brand price.
