It's fine to complain about the missing headphone jack and microSDcard slot because those are missing technology that most people actually "use", but to complain about "bezels"? darn. the item was a smartphone btw, not a piece of accessory just to show off the design.
xvi, 04 Oct 2017Terrible screen to body ratio for a tall display. Why are the bezels so much thicker than the ... moreC'mon man it is a fair trade-off for a stereo front-facing speaker. That extra mm of length to the bezel won't change the experience of using a pixel. Honestly IMO having no bezel is extremely uncomfortable since my fingers come into contact with the phone screen constantly, so having that "dead zone" is nice since I can relax my hand. In the end, it is still your opinion as it is your money and you should have 100% say in what phone you are getting. Still, try to understand why the needed the extra space around the screen.
What i like
Screen and Display
Fast update support
Good fingerprint placement
What i dont like
No dual sim or micro SD slot
Ugly back body design
What i dont care
3.5 mm jack
No SD card, no headphone jack and no dual camera for 900?! No thanks
so, the front facing stereo speakers only in the smaller one not in the XL, isn't it?
This is weird! This phone is very practical with couple of features which might be deal breakers for the others yet they didn't follow the last two year's tend:
Bezel less screen (small bezels for front facing speakers are forgiven)
I guess this is phone with great software optimization, the issue is that those who look at it that way are the ones who will eg install Lneage OS after 3 years, which may not be that optimised!
No 3.5mm audio jack? no FM? Google you hired 2000 HTC bitches ROFLMAO.
Pffft what a big lie out there
Its 157mlm body which is standard 2016 flagship size
well to me it's almost better than LG V30 because of that stereo speakers, but there is no 3.5mm audio plug neither FM radio. RIP.

Niclas, 04 Oct 2017Things I like : Screen Camera Ui / OS ( Stock Android ) Things I don't like No Headph... moreThing is google will never adopt SD because they firmly believe Onboard storage alone is better for performance which i kinda agree with honestly
Bad pricing, missing headphone jack, perennial issue of not having SD card slot, Using DxO mark to create camera hype even before it starts shipping..... almost every DxO mark phone review came after the phone started shipping but for last year's and this year's pixel, which went live with announcements of the phone which has a good month to hit the shelves..... Extremely dubious tactics by google. Can't believe they killed jack for stereo speakers, you can't listen using those at work or in commute, at home most have regular speakers, as long a single speaker is loud and clear enough to let me know about incoming call, wake me up in the morning, and i can clearly hear on speakerphone during call, it's fine, end of utility of speakers on a mobile phone right there for most of us. Wonder What's next innovation?? Ohh let's remove usb slot for a sub woofer in a phone now, coz you know we can use wireless charging anyways why the h e ll you need usb port will be the rant by these companies?? I d i o t s!!! all of them....
