Horrible experience in the two weeks I've had the Google Pixel. 24/24 phone and chat support is friendly and polite, but useless. I will go back to my iPhone 4, on which I never had to download any app, whether to read an MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint or PDF (etc.) attachment, which converted MS Outlook calendar event automatically into the built in calendar and which allowed me so much more customization. Who would have thought that Mac OS would be more compatible with Microsoft OS than Android is? Who wants to buy that Pixel from me?

This might be my new favorite smartphone ever over my G5 and V20 mainly because it is rarely given me issues. My G5 has ghosting and Sprint is awful. My V20 is too bulky and kinda lags. My Pixel is the smoothest phone I ever experienced.
The Pixel's software experience is what I wanted the Nexus One to be 7.5 years ago. See I plan to be loyal to one carrier, Verizon + Pixel is the only way for me going forward. Android is the ecosystem I want to stay in. Nomore Samsung or LG for me.
Google Phones, ftw!
It's quad core phone. Nothing special in it then why price is too much high..?
Its price should be in 400$
'Play Services has stopped', 'Phone has stopped', 'Gboard has stopped', 'Clock has stopped'. etc. etc. I've stopped caring now, the phone is in the bin!

I can see a lot of trolls in here, this phone is amazing, maybe one of the best cameras on the market with unlimited storage for photo and video, you cant ask for more. Go on Youtube see all the tech geeks talk about how they always going back to the pixel. Battery is one of the best in any smartphone. If you all had so much problems with this phone you guys must be very unlucky or have a fake product. There is alot of good phones out there but no one this clean and fast.
Would not recommend because of the price tho. But if you are like me an entusiast and want to be on a journey to see how this phone evolve with time you should buy it :)
Phones Ive used this year:
Samsung S8 plus
Pixel is hands down best android phone on the market, no other phone will guarantee you with new OS and security updates fast until 2019, maybe longer who knows.
Thats a main board failure, happened to my sony XZ. They fix stuff like that on warranty.
serious questions everyone!!
I'm reading a lot of negative stuff on here about the Pixel, do i press go and get one or will i regret it?
And do i go Pixel or Pixel XL?
DenisXD, 08 Jul 2017best? right you are an apple user.. So yeah, you make senseWTF? i had iphones before and using this is a totaly different thing! i would NEVER go back to IOS after this phone.

HW: GPS failed on International version within 6 months. On a phone that cost over AU$1000. Google replaced it with a refurbished US version. This is not what I wanted and not what they said they would do. I'm having to take it to small claims court.
Support: Horrible. They have not done a single thing they said they would. Slow. And this is for a former employee and current shareholder.
Android: random restarts, crashes, oddness. As a shareholder wanting a "pure android" experience on something remotely competitive with an iPhone, I'm stuck with the Pixel.
PS: my Pixel C also failed. Half screen died.
Both devices with be replaced with Apple devices. iPad Pro 2 and upcoming iPhone 8.

I bought it because Google advertises this phone as having LTE B7 support, but I can't use 4G because of a famous bug. Remember: for Google we are all beta testers for a product that may or may not ever get a correction to work like it should on day 1. Don't advertise all LTE bands if you cannot deliver. Simple as that.
Wanted to know is there a way to find out the manufacture date of the phone on the phone?
I just received my pixel 6 days back. It was from an online store in India. The box mentions manufacture month as April 2017. But I read somewhere online that HTC codes its serial number to the date of manufacture. Mine shows that date as 2016 October. So am wondering how is it mentioned April on the box, and shows October on the phone? Is it refurbished? Because I purchased a new device, paid for a new device. HTC service centre is very far from my place to go there. Any idea or does anyone else have a similar problem?

Now it just continues with the loading screen until the battery goes flat and there is nothing you can do about it. It's a common problem, just Google 'Google pixel boot loop' to see how many people are suffering with the same problem. All is not lost though; because the phone is wedge shaped I can use it as a door stop to keep the door open!
I am on my fourth refurbished Pixel phone since I purchased it on December 18, 2016. I have had so many issues with phone. One of the main issues is the keyboard "sticks" or "hangs up" when I am trying to text. Other times, I cannot even use my 4-digit unlock code pin to get into my Pixel. The screen freezes, I get error messages when I am at the Home Screen. Google technicians are so incompetent. One technician asked me what a "Factory Data Reset" was. Another technician wanted the last four numbers of the credit card that I used to pay my email account with every month. Seriously? Since when does having an email account cost money. I have tried to resolve my issues directly with Google. All attempts have been unsuccessful. I was told that I would have to send my phone to Google for a minimum of 15 business days so their technicians could "figure out what the problem was". I was told by Google that the issues are hardware issues, not software. I finally went to the new media with my complaints as Google advised me to contact my cell carrier to assist me with any further problems with the Pixel. I will never purchase another product made by Google.
