Smartphone trend started by apple :
Ur phone is a Internet device + Music Player + Phone.
Later Nokia added camera to the equation.
Then Apple removed the Music aspect from Smartphone by removing 3.5mm headphone Jack. Reasons:
1. Camera aspect of smartphone is more emphasized in social media (instagram, twitter, facebook ...)
2. Buy our Ipods.
HTC followed it and Google followed it too...
They are fooling us with these quality terms. These ratings can be easily beaten by a $250 Sony Digicam(slimmest one's are produced by Sony).
Since music player aspect is removed from smartphone, we have to buy dedicated music players. Might as well we buy Digicams and used our laptops and buy a Nokia 3310.
Then these assholes will learn their lessons.
3yrs security and support !!! We are already getting 10 yrs support from Windows 10. Digicams doesn't need security and updates, as well as Music Player and Nokia basic phone. Well anyways Nokia basic phones has audio jacks.
Let's boycott this all in one smartphones and teach them a lesson.
This phone is more disappointing than it should actually be. It definitely won't be as popular as it's predecessor.
Google first ruined motorola by selling it to lenovo, now it is ruining itself by permanent collaboration with HTC. If anyone has used moto x will understand completely what it was and how it all ended. Even if today someone checks on youtube, most famous of reviewers had moto x as their personal device for a time longer than usual. That phone is one of the most practical phones to use even today when it has no updates. If it was hyped properly it would have become biggest success for google and motorola both. But, i believe its all about satisfaction of those white collared people who sit in top management and think they know better. Jim Wicks, (designer of moto razr v3i) had something in mind when he suggested moto x. People are hardly aware what that phone was like. But if i tell properly it easily puts most of the phones to shame even after 4 years of its launch. Being a product designer myself i can clearly tell where they lost it while they could have conquered the world with that design and proper strategy.
AnonD-705542, 05 Oct 2017You people act like HTC designed the phone... HTC made the phone, but GOOGLE designed it... ... moreAsus Zenfone 3... But it's no high end and might not be available in all countries
Guess what Google has remove the essential 3.5mm headphone jack from the phone. Looks like Google is an apple fanboy after all.
Obviously Google should start thinking seriously about their phone's design Especially when they're selling high end ones. Nowadays smartphone is more image device rather than just an all-in-one phone-mini-computer. And yes, Galaxy S8 is a great example. Currently it is the best phone I've ever hold in my hands. It looks fantastic, feels expensive and runs fast. Definitely worth money spent on it. Not sure that I will say the same about Pixel 2. And this is not good.
AnonD-244675, 04 Oct 2017Even Sony phones have less bezel size.My Sony Xperia Z5 is 146mm and it has a 5,2 screen. This pixel 2 is 145,7mm (which is 146, a hair difference) and it's 5 inches.
So yeah, obviously Google wants people to go for the xl. Maybe that's the reason it has such an ugly design.
Seriously are Google having a laugh with this one, Galaxy S8 is a much better phone at a cheaper asking price, No dual camera, Wireless charging, Still 1080p, Bezels are huge, design Look's stupid. By the Look's of thing's there's nothing Google can do for HTC by signing that contract.
67.9% screen to body ratio?!?! You gotta be kidding me, they're going backwards by making it even worse than last year's already huge bezels 😂 😂 😂
You people act like HTC designed the phone...
HTC made the phone, but GOOGLE designed it...
I like it except it doesn't have a headphone jack...
I've been holding out on a Google phone for too long, been using my Nexus One lately, since my HTC One (m7) won't hold a charge any more.
*NOTE: It has OIS and EIS... What other phone has this??
What a disappointment. The amoled looks much bluish than the previous one. I liked the previous pixels amoled since it is not as bluish as samsungs but not it seems to be the same plus the phone is bulkier than the previous pixel.
Hm, once again nice design is not the feature of this phone. But I can live with it (I wish it would similar to S8 look). I'm more concerned about hardware reliability and assembly quality. First Pixel has suffered with childish, not forgivable for highly priced phone issues like GPS and microphone / speakers failure. Also I had an opportunity to completely disassemble the first Pixel and wasn't impressed at all. It doesn't look like US$800 phone inside. Hope this time it will be better.
So disappointed, what only real differences.. stereo speakers and a gimmicky squeezable edge? pass..
Back to apple I go
