Qxdir, 20 Oct 2016And iPhone 7 will be updated until 2020. Get your act together Google. That's the saddest part of this, Google should really change that attitude.
And iPhone 7 will be updated until 2020. Get your act together Google.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2016Once Google starts including exclusive features like Google assistant only for pixels phones i... morewell you can get google assistant on other phones already I have it on my z5 premium
We paid so much for this phone and we get 2 years update only ? Seriously Google got to learn more from Apple iPhone.
super well done google!
unfortunately due to the price i wont be able to afford the phone till its 18 months old and still leaves me short on updates and support :-/
Google phones were meant to be affordable for the masses, these should be £400 & £500 each at launch date not £600 and £720 . . . .bad google.
With project Aria out the window there will be no reasonably priced google phone.
I might need to go back to Samsung or switch to Motorola
But I thought 2 years was standard for pretty much all high end Android devices? What's so special about that?
Stondec100, 20 Oct 2016This is a joke right, they should support the phone for at least 5 years. Indeed... i was like WTF when i read this. There is nothing special about these news! I'm not interested in Pixel phones but they should get at least 3 years of quaranteed updates because my Nexus 6 is now 2 years old and i just got Nougat update and my Nexus 7 (newer model) tablet was released in summer of 2013 but it still got up to MM 6.0.1 with August security level. Pixel vs Nexus updates=Nexus wins!
Pixel is a great phone, an also ironic because it is Google telling Android fans that Apple was right in EVERY. SINGLE. WAY. right down to design lol
Once Google starts including exclusive features like Google assistant only for pixels phones it's not called Google open project anymore
What adds to Apple's resell value & overall perception that people have is the fact that you'll still be able to get updates for 4 years, which is a value added service & this encourages more consumers to spend a bit more on 2 year old iPhones then on Android devices. I get that most people don't keep a phone for longer than 2 years, it is still a great idea to offer upgrades as long as the hardware can handle it.
Why all are making the copy (Design) of iPhone?
They can't design their own style?
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2016They should give update as long as the device can handle. Iphones allways get for 4 years whil... moreI think google try to use the same sistem like apple. They sell a expensive phone and they suport only for limited time because it's more important to sell the new model .
This is where apple is ahead. Apple phones keep getting updates till the hardware is able to handle them. If google is going head to head with apple then it must ensure such things. Unique selling point of pixel phones can't be assistant. The upcoming phones with other manufactures will have better hardware than pixel in every term like processor and camera modules. We have already seen lg v20 camera. Apple and google are going gaga over their low light capabilities but likes of lg g4 , samsung s7 already have them and they are not less in quality in anyway.

2 years for a device who's only opposition (in its price group) is the iPhone is not good enough by far.
To put it in perspective, the iPhone 7 range can realistically expect software support in terms of both firmware and security right up to 2020.
