I bought google pixel in Dec 2017.
It's just a six month. It's not durable at all. I dropped from a hight of 8-10 inch height and rear glass is shattered.
Software and updates are unmatched but hardware support is not pleasant at all.
Official service takes too much time. Your phone will be in their support process for almost 10 to 15 days.
They don't provide standby device if your phone's defect is not covered by in warranty.
They don't have support portal where you can see the support progress. Their service center is only at Mumbai location for India and so you have to wait until your phone transit there and come back after repair.
The last thing, Support charges are most premium. Rear glass will cost will be similar to your car's dent repair. It's just Adhesive but costs around INR 10k.

I think the main consideration though is that Google has only promised support for 2 years (or 3 years for security updates) - which means that by the end of next year, we probably can't expect any more security updates unless a custom ROM like LineageOS is flashed (but at this stage it doesn't appear there are any ROMs for the Pixel?). I'm not sure if doing that will mean you lose access to Google Pay though. Interestingly, Google has stopped selling the Pixel through their store, but Apple continues to sell the iPhone 7 so hmm.
While it's not perfect (nothing is), the camera remains great so long as you don't need to shoot a lot of low-light video. Even out of 2017 phones, there aren't too many with better cameras. I think the biggest selling points of the 2016 Pixel remain the camera and its ability to run stock Android well without fuss - what more do most users need?

Not sure if this is the case with most phones but I doubt the chip/magnet for the compass in this case is top-of-the-line.
Is this still a great phone? Prices dropped, and I'm looking to buy this. I don't use social media and I mainly use my phone for some casual gaming, youtube, and reddit browsing.
I have to recalibrate the compass on this thing anytime I'm in an unfamiliar area or it will send me in the wrong direction for like half a mile. It's infuriating.
I enjoyed the pixel for 7 months. Great assistant, excellent battery and charge time. Unfortunately the phone hard bricked out of the blue with oreo 8.1 & Google play updates running in background. Purchased as a new device but secondhand & without receipt. Google customer service was understanding and apologetic but failed to stand behind their product unless I could produce a reciept from play store. I can understand their position however its is their flagship product with Google written on the back. Buyer beware with respect to warranty.
Bob X, 23 Mar 2018Hi guys I can't pick between the goole pixel and the iPhone 7 please help Thank YouFirst use iOS and Android then compare bot the experience.I personally don't like iOS due to its limitations but it's a very good for someone.So OS requirement should be changed from person to person.

The implementation of Voice over LTE is faulty, ask your carrier to disable this feature for your personal service on their end and you will once again have a steady connection for your calls, albeit a less hi-fidelity one.
Hi guys :) need help pls.Do I need to buy a software protection and anti virus after the warranty finishes? And what is the worst thing of this phone? Thanks.
