Updated to 7.1.2 through Verizon earlier and it fixed the double tap to wake. I was having issues with it on 7.1.1 that I also had to turn on the raise to wake feature. Now it is probably more accurate than my LG phones and even wakes up under a blanket with no lighting. Good job, Google.
I will say that the camera on the Pixel is more overrated than the S7 edge. I had a shootout and the surprise winner was the G5 even in low light. Very sharp and I like its colors even if it comes off a little fake. S7e was only a little better and sharper than the Pixel.
While Pixel has the worst for still photos, it excels in video recording followed by Samsung. LG has the worst video recording of the trio. S7e has the best front cam thanks to wide angle. G5 is best overall thanks to still photos and wide angle on the rear. They all have their strengths and weaknesses over each other.
Pixel is my favorite to use overall thanks to the fluid software and more one-handed friendly size. G5 is my favorite phone to do everything overall though. S7e is clearly 3rd for me personally but still a solid bronze winner with a beautiful design, VR, GIF maker, and water-resistance that the other two lack. Software just bogs down the usability along with the annoying curves.
It is definitely one of the best phones I have ever had. I am just a phone user. I like the size, screen resolution, speed, camera, etc. even when my camera turns red/yellow when is a little dark and I don't know how to fix it. The other problem is the app communication with the system apps; by example I use windows exchange, Contacts and calendar, don't sync properly; like, when I create a new contact. I save it in my exchange. minutes after look in my contacts and is not there. Battery is another problem, it does not last the whole day, definitely better than any Iphone and a Windows 10 though.

This is the best mobile I have ever had, my first in 1991. It is quick, takes great pictures. Cannot comment on the music facilities as I do not download, but the phone works well
I had purchased a Google Pixel a month ago and even though it's a fantastic phone the service that Google provide in India is atrocious. Within 2 weeks of buying the phone the bottom facing speaker conked off! Even though Google admitted that it was a manufacturing defect on the phone they wouldn't take any responsibility for it. How they treat their customers in India is truly disappointing. I would disuade anyone to buy this phone for the shear lack of support on their part.
Very disappointed customer.
Do durability w class. I shifted from OnePlus 3 to Google pixel. And I am impressed. Build Quality, software Experience, performance, battery backup w w a palm i pre w i xdxdxdxdxd hahahahah hahaha
I'm really confused between Google Pixel and Galaxy s7.In India,Pixel is available for 45k and GS7 for 39k.Can any one comment about the battery performance of Pixel?
Best in class. I shifted from OnePlus 3 to Google pixel. And I am impressed. Build Quality, software Experience, performance, battery backup every thing is impressive. Camera is truly the best. Yes the price is bit high. But the phone is awesome.
If the often maligned but underrated LG G5 is my #1 favorite smartphone ever because it has every feature I want, then the Pixel is like my #1A. I really do prefer using this phone right now. I also like that Verizon didn't brand the phone on the back. I see no boot up animation from Verizon or any of their bloat. Works wonderfully with T-Mobile.
I just updated to 7.1.1 and love the double tap to wake. My lockscreen wallpaper says Google with a black background and the home screen says Android in black as well. I want it black since OLED. Even my SwiftKey is a black theme. The effort of waking it while seeing Google and then Android, sliding up for my app drawer, and locking it is just so SEAMLESS. Smoother and quicker than any iPhone I ever used too.
I also didn't expect to use Google Assistant alot but I do especially to make calls, open my Gmail, check weather, or find addresses. Believe the hype. It might look ugly with a weird back and too much top and bottom bezel, but it delivers in daily performance. Will probably go XL with a Pixel 3 since typing on 5" can feel cramped after using 5.3-5.5".
This is a great phone, folks. Don't judge a book by its cover. The price might be a bit steep but it isn't like every Nexus device was inexpensive. Nexus One was priced originally at $530. Nexus 6 and 6P were $650+. A 32gb iPhone 7 is priced similarly. Google doesn't want to associate Android as a poor man's iOS and wants to show it fast ajd fluid unlike Samsung's skin.
The quality is there especially inside the Pixel where it truly counts. People who judge this phone based on design or price but never actually owned it yet is similar to Luke Skywalker prejudging and underestimated Yoda early in The Empire Strikes Back. That is why THEY FAIL.
