Haswell, 15 Aug 2017Those Bezels are so damn ugly! I'll skip this & wait for Pixel 3 XL :)Why wait that long lets wait and see what the Pixel XL2 will look like.
I can see Samsung making a traditional Galaxy phone with squeezable frame on its edges.

This seems to be based on the U11, squeeze feature and all. The U11 is currently one of the prettiest smartphones out there, especially the Solar Red version.
It's plain disturbing how Google took one of the prettiest smartphones and turned it into one of the most ugly smartphones, the Pixel 2.
TORNADO, 16 Aug 2017the squeeze option works perfectly fine with any tpu cases so do not worry , just think before... moreI doubt it will work on hard cases, or ottorbox or lifeproof cases. Those use materials that are too stiff to squeeze. maybe just think before you comment too
Since it's not the main/important feature (it's just additional), so I think it's not worth making a fuss about. It's not that you can't receive a call or can't turn on your screen if the squeeze feature is worthless or stupid for you. Just don't use it. Simple, isn't it? It won't make your phone useless or decreasing your productivity in using your phone.
If you're saying "hey it's a feature so maybe they should make a useful one instead of making one that is so useless", then I'm also thinking the same. It's not so useful but again it's not a feature that sacrifices other feature to work. For example, the bixby button. If we don't like to use bixby, it can't be remapped to be used for other apps so that's a wasted button. But in this squeeze case, If we don't like it, we are not forced to use it, right? So just disable it.

TORNADO, 16 Aug 2017the squeeze option works perfectly fine with any tpu cases so do not worry , just think before... moreHow about hard cases? Some people love using rugged cases too. Some even use metal cases. Squeeze feature is the strangest thing manufacturer ever invented. Feels like a bad 60's tv commercial trying to sell a gimmicky product. It will eventually failed and forgotten. Look at pressure sensitive display. Did that really kick off very well? Is it even adopted by every single major manufacturer yet? 3D touch my butt. Not even useful much.
hmmm..., 16 Aug 2017Still not sold on the squeeze function that HTC is trying to shove down our throats. they didn... morethe squeeze option works perfectly fine with any tpu cases so do not worry , just think before comment!!!
Leeon, 16 Aug 2017Very disappointing with no dual camera set up Dual cameras are gimmick
Still not sold on the squeeze function that HTC is trying to shove down our throats. they didn't take into consideration that most people will have a case on their phone.
Hopefully they (mostly the XL) will be of the highest level (as specs, features, etc), and so that they can compete for the highest spot with the Note 8, V30 and so on.
ithehappy, 16 Aug 2017One by LG another by HTC! WTF Google! Pull yourselves together! I would rather both the Pixels... more Is it just me, or do LG models lose their resale value quickly?
Regardless, at least they add cool quad DAC chipsets to their
flagship's. HTC is known for above average dual speaker setups on their handsets. Looks like the Pixel 2 won't be an exception to their typical rule of thumb. To the trolls and/or haters: relax! Enjoy your lives! ^_~ .
I think it may surprise us quite nice actually. Last years looked absolutely beautiful in store, so will be keen to see this years. Renders of any phone and non refined presentations of images don't do any phone justice, so lets wait and see Googles new product.
