Faizy_2k16, 22 Oct 2016very good phone at this price, but there is no SD-card slot makes me little unhappy.Why are you worried about SD card?
Basically SD card is external means of data storage.you have OTG option to connect other external storage devices. Plus use data cable for connecting it to computer.
And finally if you want lot of storage, go for 128/256 GB version.
I don't understand, people want to have SD card, high internal storage, OTG so that they can have good data storage.
It seems you are looking for a hard disk with calling options.
Now this is the real definition of overpriced junk. No microSD, No WaterProofing, Mono Speakers, Ugly design.....
very good phone at this price, but there is no SD-card slot makes me little unhappy.

Chirp, 21 Oct 2016It matters, yes. They're ran on a different pipeline, so if you want to copy data from the USB... moreYou are so right!
The phone has good specs but 3 MAJOR flaws:
- No SD Card
- No real waterproof
- UGLIER than most of the phones out there
I'm getting the XZ form Sony.
Can anyone tell me how many times digital zoom the Pixel and Pixel XL have?
I just paid $32.99 for SanDisk 128GB card from amazon. Seems to me like the cost to upgrade 32 to 128 should be less than the price I paid since the mass quantity discount of a phone production company.

They're ran on a different pipeline, so if you want to copy data from the USB port to the microSD, you actually get faster speeds than simply slitting the USB port. I use my phone to clone SD cards, for photography purposes.
Having data on the SD card also means it doesn't get uploaded to the cloud, which is good because I don't always want to upload things to the cloud. Most cloud services I know of have been compromised at some point or other.
SSDs also have limited write cycles, so if you're constantly writing data that you're obtaining from the cloud, it will lessen the lifespan of the phone considerably.
How does it negatively impact the customer? I understand from the manufacturers point of view it makes sense not to include a microSD card slot because they can sell the more expensive phone with more storage, but please remind me what your issue is against having a microSD card slot.
SkyTechX, 21 Oct 2016Really google? Not having Micro SD slot, what a jokeDoes it really matter when they give you unlimited cloud storage for images and videos (at full resolution)?
SkyTechX, 21 Oct 2016Really google? Not having Micro SD slot, what a jokeTransfer speed of SD memory its very slow... it's like difference between HDD and SSD. In the end someone like you, will blame the device because is too "slow"... it's not enough 128Gb?
some people has the stupid notion that having no removable memory is a feature of premium phone.
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2016Everyone is saying no one will buy them yet they are out of stock on pre-orders. lolThat doesn't always mean they are out of stock. Sales will definitely not be as good as the previous Nexus lines. Just sit back and watch the show lol
please Please PLEASE bring back the Mighty MicroSD!!!
I love having a 200Gb flexible reliable internal storage solution that WHEN my phone breaks I can simply pull out intact!
I don't care that the I/O is relatively slow. It's fine for anything I use it for!
whats so new beside the "words"
ok, so Apple and the rest did round the edges and now the rest is doing it, Apple started with the NON-removal battery, all is doing it, Apple started with NO extensible memory...and so on BUT how about a new phone like Pixel....with the rest of possibilitys and 2-3 more things; and y'all cant tell me that there is nothing else to add to a phone, please, all those geeks there and for what cause the system is the same
endy, 19 Oct 2016hate the tiny screen to size ratio... feels like an iphone.That is exactly what I was thinking.
The XL has a better screen to size ratio.
I was hoping it would be a little closer to the 72- 73%
