I absolutely love the Google pixel just
Perfect for 1 hand operation.if I was Google I would let Qualcomm keep making those Snapdragon processors(they do a great job at them, not only that but u get to keep people from losing jobs, & keep letting adrena make the GPUs). & keep letting Google make all the software, & design of the frame of the pH.

You want apps, you need to go to the app store and if needed, purchase them. On Android however, you can download the desired apps externally and transfer them to your phone without the unnecessary need to spend money from your bank account. iPhone, in terms of storage, gives you either 32GB, 64GB or 128GB, which the bigger the storage, the more you pay. Android on the other hand, you can easily buy a 200GB micro SD and insert into your android phone, and you ultimately have even more storage than the iPhone has
Aman338, 17 Nov 2016Nothing special in pixel. The software is special, the hardware is just on par with other flagships.
all perfect. but design? i dont like it at all... and fingerprint on back of the phone its annoying to me
It seems that a lot of the negative comments here seem to come from people who have not tried this device. I switched to this device from a Galaxy S7 edge, I am also issued an Apple iPhone 6 from work. I also had the newest Motorola MotoZ for a few days, it under-impressed. This is hands down the best phone I have used. The UI is blazingly fast, the resolution is insane, the features they advertise work even better than I expected even though they advertised the heck out of them. The fingerprint scanner is the easiest and fastest I have ever used. The charging is insanely fast, that would be expected with their own charger and cable given that they advertised it so much, but I have used 3rd party fast chargers and cables and found it to be ridiculously fast even when using those. The camera is a great as they claim it is, and it is also very fast, but the one criticism I would give it is that it allows too much low light before engaging the flash. One of the major differences I have found between it and the other phones mentioned above is it's ability to operate for hours while using the screen and sound without getting so warm it is uncomfortable. On that topic, I do also see a marked difference in battery usage. Where I used to play a game for a couple of hours and need to recharge, this phone only hits about 60% at the same time spent. I do not have the XL, it is just the standard Pixel. I can only imagine the XL would be even better, but that would be larger than I like.
To summarize, this is the best phone I have ever used. I have used android based phones since they were first released. I have also used several Apple based phones as a requirement of work. None of them can compare to the pixel in terms of display, resolution, camera, general design (they even thought to groove the power button so you can tell it from the volume with a touch), fingerprint reader, or speed. On a personal note, I really do like the interface as well. Hands down, the best phone I have ever used.
Features are copied from iPhone 6. Siri is copied from iPhone. Shame for google. Why pixel is copying iPhone features
Dave Granger, 10 Nov 2016Boring iPhone knock-off. Please review the Xiaomi Mi Mix.Speaking of iPhone knockoffs......
sahil sekh, 12 Nov 2016Google fone is very good smartfone cemera is is very good Display is vesy very very goodSd821 & nougat can win speed against motorola z? Seriously week
Anonymous, 10 Nov 2016V20 is better.And the LG G5. Picked one up for $400 cdn and I'm simply amazed at how fast and smooth this phone is. Benchmarks just under the Pixel in real life testing (I got 139634 in Antutu), it won the camera shoot-out on this site, expandable storage, great screen with higher brightness than this site states (goes up to 800 nits outdoors according to phone arena, and I've had no issues with outdoor legibility), and is already getting Nougat in some regions.

I can understand you guys being upset that Google did not make this phone waterproof and include stereo speakers....but why wouldn't they charge as much as Apple? The average person believes that a higher price means higher quality...and do you guys think Google wants people to think that the Pixel is lower quality than an iPhone? Even if you think it is, you can't understand that from their perspective, they want people to think it's as good? And what's wrong with companies wanting to make money...we live in a consumerist world..that's how we make money!
It's still Android, so it still has issues.
Worst security, outdated user interface (static icons), random bugs and app crashes, missing important features, slow and inefficient when compared to Windows and iOS, poor battery management when having loads of apps installed, poor memory management, messy filesystem, etc.
Thanks, but no thanks! I'll stick to my 950XL until something better comes out.
So glad I've switched from the OnePlus 2 to the Lumia. Everything just works now.
