mines arriving next few days and have these expectations so hope it lives up to them.I wanted 128gb but cannot afford that and this unit is used 32gb. I love the Nexus range but after Nexus 5 the 6 was too big,Nexus 6P too bighead 3 Nexus 5x all had failed cameras or just stuck and now this which is so expensive. I seems like years since had a Nexus even though I like them.
I want them to build a Pixel 2 made of polycarbonate perhaps 6xx series chip/6gb RAM and be £349 for 128gb model.

We really do not need massive GHz CPU even for gaming it is the GPU that matters. A 21MP camera could produce awful photo but 8 MP can be stunning.
A lot of these reviewers just get the phone, test it out for 1 day and return it. It is when you live with the phone after 1 month then 6 months then a year that counts.
What about using the phone in busy rush hour is it hard to handle?is ring loud enough?etc what about as you travel going between cell towers will drain battery faster, these reviewers have no true meaning of anything they just sit in office take a few photos that is it.
The best thing is as you say, real life.
What are the pros and cons of this phone... How's the battery? Cuz I'm a heavy user

This has been true for years. The original MotoG was smoother than the Samsung Galaxy of its day, and the Pixel is smoother than any other currently available Android device. Specsmanship is what lead to the megahertz race, the megapixel race, the core count race, etc. All that matters is the user experience.
Room temperature is around 35C usually, but my Google Pixel heats up to 41C when using camera or snapchat. Is this normal? I have updated to Android 7.1.2 and the issue still persists.
Oneplus 3T has better specs. 6gb RAM, with the same chipset. Fingerprint Scanner on the Home button. and has good camera too.
New google smartphone need to be new great desing like LG G6 or samsung s8, new clean display Super Amoled, and cheaper.....
1.Display.- 5.3 WQHD - Super Amoled - CGG 5 - IP68
2.Memory.- 4 GB RAM
3.Chipset.- Snapdragon 835
Anonymous, 22 Nov 2016I'm currently using Nokia 1600 and I'm planning to upgrade. So do guys think Google pixel is t... moreI do not recommend the Google pixel.
Multiple problems with it , poor battery life, Google commands very unreliable, phone software was working then failed, no service or support. EE the distributor refer you to Google and Google to EE!
Google don't care they just need your data.
I bought this phone because it was advertised as providing up to 7 hours charge in 15 minutes which is an outright lie. They get around the sale of goods act by stating "up to'. The EE shop where i bought it made it charge 1 hour after 1/2 charge.
Then the voice commands which are essential for hands free dialling only work about 20% of the time. So 1 minute it will take your instructions and dial the next minute not.
Finally having synced my phone to my outlook contacts which all worked fine suddenly it's lost all my contacts and i now have to call using outlook which means incoming calls are no longer identified.
Finally 24/7 support is another myth. No response even to emails. These people are just cheats who think they can ride roughshod over users.
Do not buy Pixel until they prove it works.
davk, 29 Apr 2017This phone looks like Chinese copy of iPhone But better :)
Best phone I've ever had. Works well, excellent photos, intuitive, does everything I want. I had a Google Nexus before. This is even better. Very glad I took the plunge.

I decided to g... moreStop trolling, Samsung fanboy.
The Pixel does not have an inferior camera to the iPhone 5. My $30 Lumia 640 has a camera as good as the iPhone 5. Pixel blows both away. S6? That's even worse to hold and laggier than the S7 duo. Stop it. Nice try though.
My only qualms with the Pixel beyond the boring design is it can't be recognized on my MacBook using Android File Transfer. My LG and Samsung could though. And when using ES File Explorer's app manager when I want to Bluetooth transfer an app apk to the Pixel, it won't accept it. Seems Google really closed this one out.
But other than that, still better to use than a Samsung. The Pixel has the newest SwiftKey update and no lag on this dialog box. Smoothest and most fluid Android smartphone I have ever owned. As fluid as iPhone.
Roda, 18 Apr 2017Try one plus 3T it is better then this phoneOne plus 3T what does it mean?
AnonD-564539, 04 Feb 2017I was expecting more than 12 megapixels but all other specs were good 4.9 StarsHow about the camera clarity of pixel bro
If the fingerprint is front mounted i can buy it, rear mounted is shit one. damm it.
So I done some research and not all was good but you get that with everything.
I decided to go with it anyway.
The design is great I love how it looks, I like the fingerprint sensor at the back too.
It's kind of iPhone looking but with android so if you're an iPhone fan but hate restrictions this could be the phone for you.
This however is where my opinion changes.
The volume button is on the wrong side and placed perfectly so when it's in an in car holder the volume gets pressed, very annoying.
The phone is not as fast as I expected.
The camera was disappointing compared to Samsung and even my iPhone 5.
The first thing that happened when I put my sim in and started downloading apps was a "force close" type thing.
It crashed everything I tried for the first hour.
Afterwards it improved long enough to have a play but still threw me out of apps and games randomly until day 4.
Performance was however quite slow considering.
Then when playing games my Internet was constantly dropping out on WiFi, I contacted my service provider 7 times and in the end had an engineer visit to fix my net but there was nothing wrong with it, he had an old Samsung like the first smart phone ever and he was streaming videos fine. it turns out the pixel has a WiFi connection issue since it was returning speeds of 30mbps and although stayed connected had no Internet connection, totally unreliable.
Mobile signal was strong though, where I would normally get no signal or very little I was picking up 2 bars + happily.
I got rid of the pixel after just 6 days of owning it, I'd had enough of the faults and quite honestly what I was led to believe was great performance camera etc etc.
All very disappointing.
Also the battery life wasn't that good considering the battery that's powering it.
I now have a galaxy S6 again I'm getting Internet speeds over WiFi of 130mbps and no connectivity issues.
Camera is very good.
Performance feels faster than the pixel.
It's the same size as the pixel well a little bigger.
Battery is about the same as the pixel.
And Web browsing is of ease where as the pixel some things were awkward to navigate and adverts with multiple pictures were where the pixel got stuck as it didn't give you the arrows or tap to change to see all the other pics.
Highly recommend staying away from this phone!!
Samsung is allot nicer to look at and hold.
Everything works well even apps feel like they were designed for the phone.
