This may be just the Pixel 2 XL design, not the simple 2 also.
Seriosly I preffer Ir blaster and headphone jack than micro sd. That's why I like s6 feat than s7.
Storage is not a problem at 64gb or 32gb. Also you can put pictures and videos on a computer.
Every company sooner or later will ditch the headphone jack. I have no problem with it. BUT GIVE US some adapters in order to use headphones while phone is charging. But no. They want more money...
Sd slot, headphone jack.... present or absent doesn't matter. The Pixel i am currently is a super duper phone. The fastest droid out there withthe cleanest launcher. The best camera. Its an absolute treat to use the Pixel
as much as I like the screen of S8 but it bothers me a lot, lets be honest that new trend aspect ratio is useless.

If I hadn't bought a pair o... morewhat the h*** on earth why people will keep saying that other manufacturer followed iphone? actually iphone copied or follow the trend the first one is Motorola ohh boy what a fan.
Another planned obsolescence move after the removal of removable battery and SD card.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2017have fun staying at 2012Yeah. I like my 3.5mm headphones, I also dislike adapters and I also like to charge my phone while listening to music. Also won't buy a phone with a useless 2:1 screen ratio. If that means I'll have to keep buying a Nexus 6 till the end of times, so be it. Feels like we're going backwards with phones. Shoving some bulls*** "features" down our throats and we're just expected to gobble it all down, no matter whether it's good or bad. If more users would be tech-savvy, or if at least they knew what they are buying, this wouldn't be happening.
Obi Wan Kenobi, 02 Aug 2017Google's Nexus/Pixels never had MicroSD card and a few other important features even in the ea... moreAnd just like HTC, Google will also kill the remaining selling point of their devices - great software, updates, and support, the same wag LG left their signature removable battery flagships this year.
While others are actually coming back this year, some are just going downhill.
I guess this is the beginning of turnover.
Those who are willing to pay $800 for this jackless flagship, just make sure to have an extra $50 for the repair of your USB C port. Using one port to do two things and be used frequently will loosen the tightness of the port, and worse is it can also get broken.
If you keep on clicking on and off the light switch of a light bulb, you know yourself that you can potentially damage or destroy it with that action.
Bye 3.5mm jack, Bye another phone manufacturer off my purchasing list!!
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2017have fun staying at 2012Licking the boots of billion dollar companies, pathetic... 3.5mm headphone jacks cost nothing and these phones have the room for them as seen in teardowns. Plenty of phones achieve waterproofing with the headphone jack.
There is no reason to remove the headphone jack. Its massively anti-consumer and anyone who defends the move is an idiot and a bigot
I do not want to charge a battery in my headphones, so I will never ever buy any phone without a 3.5 mm jack! Stop making phones worse!
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2017XZ1 may ditch too... Sony's a trendsetter, not a trendhopper.

Anonymous, 02 Aug 2017Just a recycled lg g6. No changes on the back except for a big sensor camera, no dual camNot bigger sensor, probably wider angle lenses...
Look at front cam of XZ and M5. Same sensor but they look different.
M5's front cam looks like a rear cam.
