Nothing special except improved rear camera.
Even the design of 1st generation pixel is much more better than pixel 2.
The undisputed winners for best android phones this year are s8,s8+,note 8 and lgv30. This highly anticipated phone proved to be a joke. Go take pictures of where the sun doesn't shine and shove it to your dxo rating.
Statutory Ape, 05 Oct 2017If it doesn't have a headphone jack, I don't want it. Just use USB-C headphones, holy crap. ItÂ’s battery will be good enough so you wonÂ’t have to charge and use headphones at the same time. Losing the headphone jack is not that big of a damn deal
6ymu, 05 Oct 2017Please, someone, hang designer and people responsible for bezelsAt least you have really good speakers where those bezels are. Better than IPhone
Yet another phone wihout audio jack. I'd rather pass all Google and HTC ideas. Waht next? No microphone? No volume control?
its too pricey in india if any one has to spend 61k then why would not he go with i phone 8 ....even apple has excellent after sale service !! come on google you are not apple

But I am telling you put same software in a more practical device and see the magic. They lost it completely. They had all the ingredients to make the best and still they are not doing so well. Just have a look at the design of moto x 2nd gen which was also made under google. A bigger screen in smaller size. Amoled display which saved battery like anything. 2300 mah battery would last almost a day. And was one of the fastest android devices even though it was not having the best processor. Front facing speakers, ring flash which looked good around the camera and most advanced voice commands which worked like breeze. Wont you like it if your phone is constantly listening to your voice without losing any battery while the mic receiver is on all the time. It was hell of a phone. I dont know what all the professionals are thinking.?
It isn't all about design you gotta look at all other stuff It surely outperforms all other smartphone either it be the camera software and reliability.I simply love it except for it could put in a 3.5mm headphone jack in it.
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.
AGReklaw, 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
