Just compare it with Samsung Galaxy S4.
The S4 is 300$ and launched 3 and a half years ago, on the other hand Pixel is 650$.
Is 350$ worth 2 Gb extra RAM and a better camera, but no card slot and non-changeable battery?
Too simple, too pricy, the Nexus line is dead and gone. Just stick to LG, who is always ahead of the competition and always innovating. Maybe they don't have the marketing capabilities of Samsung and Apple, but from Apple point of view, they will never lose their clients, as they represent a niche in the smartphone market. But as far as Samsung is concerned, they will slowly decrease in interest, the Note 7 and S7 scandal was something way too big to be ignored, especially because Samsung was seen as a top of the line phone. I have to admit that I always hated Samsung phones for their cheap build, ton of useless features, crappy software optimization, and above all, the price range. And always thought how can people fall into their marketing scheme. My LG V10 is the third LG phone I have, and honestly, even though I like this brand, I am not a fanboy or something like that, I just realised that this brand is really, but really underrated. I believe that the 3 LG Nexus versions so far speak the truth. Samsung, by the way, is on the verge of decaying as Nokia soon.
I can understand the quality and functions Google Pixel has and that the idea is to compete with IPhone7 and Samsung S7 but they could do that with a much lower prince tag... C'mon... Google has TONS of money, they could define a new standard in mobile phone scene internally but no... all they show is how greedy they are. I'm sure they will still sell tons of units, another mobile phone for the elitists, not for the common of mortals. tsc tsc. shame
its strange Google has made apparently high end phones with such thick bezels and very ordinary looks at least from front. I'm curious about camera performance though and how the experience differs from a nexus

Costs as much as an iPhone and looks like a poor man's iPhone, honestly. These devices are missteps by Google in my opinion. Time will tell.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2016Is this device supports 4G ?This phone does not have sim card slot
Why is it so expensive? It costs like an iPhone! Way too much nowadays!
This phone costs 56,000 in India. The xiaomi Mi 5s has the same Snapdragon 821 chipset and aluminum body but it will not cost more than 25,000. What was Google thinking?
