LOL, this is a joke? :) I'm afraid I won't buy this product. Time to say goodbye to Google's platform and change to more reliable one like SailfishOS, Ubuntu, Tizen or any other I believe much more promising. Even MIUI is better even if it is based on this crap from Google.
I knew the prices will be higher as HTC is the manufacturer, every HTC phone launched in India is overpriced. The price is $649 in US and $855 in India, why so much difference.
What innovation is in PIXEL ? Making a phone look like iPhone doesn't mean imitate the pricing too. Sad that BOM for pixel will be far less than iPhone and pricing is on par :( Bye Bye Pixel.
Is rather go for the Moto Z play or OP3. Pixel is totally out of budget, waited to long for this phone
When you have mi5, Op3 in option who will buy this insanely overpriced product. In this price, will anyone choose pixel over iphone 7 or note 7??
Next year OCTOBER,
I'll buy it at INR45000/- (PIXEL XL).
Cause every after 6 months from launching DATE,
google's phone gets lost in the sea & google hardly gets any buyer for their over priced products.
Till then super happy with my NEXUS 6 (bought@19999/-last year).
With this pricing, I could see following happening over next 6 months:
- Xiaomi and ONE+ latest phones with SD 820+ and above shall be one of most sought-after in Android. Reason being simple - affordable price tag and dual sim options.
- Nexus 5x and 6p will go out of stock , as prices will drop.
- iPhone sales will see rise too. IPhone 6 family will be preferred first. Then 6s and last will be 7.
56000, 66000, 67000 and 76000. Great. Google has officially gone out of its mind. Even HTC's own flagship costs less than that. Bring Nexus Line up back and kill Pixel or bring down the iPhone like price.
On yesterday's live revealing program Google officials said pixel xl will available @649$? Maybe huge taxes added by the government
Wikipedia says average income per person in India is about $1500. So, an average indian can buy less than 2 Pixels a year.
