As boring as the iphone. No dual sim. No sd card. No ir blaster. Chunky body that doesn't translate to marathon battery life. Overkill screen resolution that doesn't serve any purpose other than giving a marginally better VR experience that nobody is going to bother after a few nauseating experiences or after the novelty fades. Google assistant? You only talk to your phone at home or when driving unless you want to look silly in public talking loudly to a phone. For this, get an Amazon echo or Google's copycat version. And the price? Forget it. You can have the same or better specs and features at half the price elsewhere. Try oneplus or xiaomi or oppo or vivo. So what is the target market of this phone? Iphone switchers? Nope. Samsung flagship users? Nope. Nexus owners? Yes, but only a very small percentage as most Nexus owners value price:performance over prestige. In short, this phone is going to flop big time unless it captures if not all, at least most of the features android enthusiasts want in an android phone. High on the list for many android users aside from good camera and video (given) are sd card support, removable or large 4000mAh+ batteries, water resistance, ir blaster, wireless and/or fast charging, dual sim support, slimport or mhl support, option for larger (6.0"-6.8") screen sizes.
expressmobile, 05 Oct 2016look at that lower bezel...make me lolNot only lower bezel, but also upper one. I don't het an idea of such a bezels in 2016. Why isn't it obsolete? Why isn't it outdated? And still 71% s2b ratio, still better than iPhone ;/
Watch this wannabe iPhone drop in price just like the Nexus 6 which went from $650 to $250 in 1 year.
I was looking forward getting rid of my Samsung and buying the new Nexus phone. Then this happens... Now, I am not sure what I am going to do. Don't think I will be buying this thing, but I want a phone that gets the new OS within a reasonable time frame (not 2 years like AT&T Samsungs do). What to do, what to do?!...
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2016cuz the GG5 Glass that the note 7 uses scratches easy so they'd rather use the reliable GG4 it... moreLol nice joke, like, didnt the note 7 survive 50 face drops? While iphone 7 could survive just 6-7 drops. Also people uses screen protectors on their 1000$ devices obviously. Getting screen shattered is more fragilr and wayy more painful, people would prefer harambe glass 5 in any day.
nice try google but apple is getting even more customers from what yous are doing with your new pixel lol. A lot of things missing in this pixel phone besides i've always been an apple fan and will die an apple fan!

Rutgerus, 05 Oct 2016Shouldn't the colours be Quite Black and Very Silver?absolutely true
Hope better than Samsung and could be a counterpart of Android to Iphones. Specs wise I can say.
I can't do it. I've already compromised to a 5.7" screen with the Nexus 6P (from a Galaxy Mega 2 and a Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition prior). I can't do anything less than that! Why are American device screens getting smaller? And why does anything above 5.7" have to be relegated to 1080p here in the States? Please let this trend die!
A 3450 mAh battery? No OIS? Huge chin bezel, yet no capacitive buttons?
What the hell, Google. What the hell. *pass*
it is shame...
why everybody copy apple design.
there is no one in google to make a different design.?
