I hope it's gonna cost somewhere around the current price of a Galaxy S7 in my country. This looks like one hell of a phone I'd like to spend my monies on. But the only downside of this phone is that it has a lithium ion battery. They should have sticked to the lithium-polymer ones that the Nexus phones had. Those are the best!
NECo, 23 Oct 2016Can someone tell how the battery life of the pixel is ? i have an galaxy s6 and i have to cha... moreIt has 100mah lesser battery power than the S6 on paper. Having said that, it will last more than the S6 does because of much much better hardware software integration. Hence it should last you an entire day.
Max, 23 Oct 2016You're welcome. Those are nice devices hands down but I'm still stuck with my Xperia Z3 :)Funny story I actually left my z3 for the pixel (regular) so far its been a good experience.
Can someone tell how the battery life of the pixel is ?
i have an galaxy s6 and i have to charged it in the middle of the day most often to last until midnight.
can someone tell from their experience ? ( if someone own it here ) ?
SPACE SHORT, 13 Oct 2016The cost is too much than the i phone 7 . can reduce the price or add some features like SD ca... moreIt has unlimited cloud storage for photos and 4K videos and you get 7hrs of battery life with just a 15min charge. So . That should take care of the lack of Sd card and small battery.

Max, 23 Oct 2016Excuse me sir, what is your current phone in use?Thanks for your interest dude! I use iPhone 6s as my daily driver and a Nexus 6P as a backup device.
I went yesterday to a store near my home .. the google pixel xl costs 1600$ ( factory unlocked version) oh what the hell !! Are u kidding me google ???!!! The last month i bought alienware 15 oled laptop and galaxy s7 for only 1700$ .. thank u google i will never buy it even if it cost 600$!!!!
Purchased the phone few days back and have been using it. I have too say this is the most pleasing android experience ever. I have used many cellphones including nexus 4 and S6 edge, but I have to say the way the software has been integrated with the hardware - its tremendous! Camera is excellent, memory doesn't matter anymore because all photos are stored in cloud from the beginning. And the design is really aesthetic and feels extremely pleasant in hand. Battery life is good for one day. Overall it really is the (Iphone) android customers have been waiting for.
And the price? Iphone doesnt have excessive features yet always has been priced the most and people bought it anyways! Pixel is for premium users and there is no denying that fact. Its a phone which is made to advertise google as a premium phone maker and not some brand with multiple variants! One thing is for sure, this is a start to something great!
Premium users! Its your time :)
aatif khan, 22 Oct 2016I did read your explanation before I replied to the person (faizy).
Yours is a genuine case ... morePeople don't need to justify their reasons for wanting an SD Card. Just because you don't need one, doesn't mean others don't. Also, why should it be "valid" in your eyes?
Maybe someone puts a lot of work in something you may not find valid or justified. Buy nevertheless that person cares.
Personally I do so many things with my 32GB Cass 10 card:
- Over 20.000 photos (im into graphics, photoshop)
- APK kits and backups (in case there's no light, no Internet)
- Usually I download torrents straight on my phone
- Some videos, clips
- Music and e-books
- Documents, pdfs
- And the most important thing, I keep my ROMs on my SD Card. Whenever I feel like, I get in recovery, erase everything and flahs a new ROM without the need of cables.
I won't tell you how many files I've lost for having them on the internal memory. I'm into extreme de-bloating, playing with the OS, changing it how I want it and many times when something goes wrong you get bootloops, which basically means you lost everything on the internal memory and you need to reflash the ROM.
ALSO, you can drop your phone, get it wet, render it useless, BUT you can always get the SD Card out and all your data si safe.
The cloud thing isn't for everyone. For one I barely use it. What happens if you have no Internet? Ups!
Also, I don't want my data on fuggle's hard drives.
The bottom line is people still use them, still need them and we are many. When I pay a lot of cash on a HIGH-END smartphone there are some features that I demand. This is how the market goes. People ask and others provide. I always want waterproof and SD Card or I'm not interested from the start, no matter how gorgeous or shiny or GOOD the phone is.
A highend smartphone on Android without SD Card is not highend in my eyes and many others that are into IT, graphics, photography and the list goes on.
Maybe it's your who should not buy a highend phone and go for a midrange device or a Fixel :)) and let the nerds properly use a SMARTphone.
SD card, IR, Dual Sim Variant, Waterproofing are the most important features that any modern flagship must have in order to be a really great phone! I dropped both Pixel and XZ for not having the IR and honor 8 for not having the dual-sim variant in my country.
Give me a phone with no more than 5" with a unibody design, IR, waterproofing, SD, dual-sim, USB C and take my efin money!
aatif khan, 22 Oct 2016Don't buy it and make your life simple.Dont comment on that and make your life even simpler!
Chirp, 22 Oct 2016Scroll down a bit, I explained why.I did read your explanation before I replied to the person (faizy).
Yours is a genuine case and you have a valid reason and that is the why I didn't reply on your comment.
But most of people on here demand SD card, coz they fear they will run out of storage and other reason being - costly phone and no SD card ( other demand is of FM tuner and IR blaster for costly phone).
Hardly few will have genuine reasons like yours.my comment was not for you, but for those whi demand SD card slot with out a justification.
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.
