I can buy a TV with this price,Are they kidding us,I am telling you it will be a major failure in india
They expect to sell at that price ? Nexus was never a good seller in India. To this date, general public mentality is that at premium prices above INR 50000, go for iPhone. Only Samsung Galaxy S series and Note series successfully fight that. iPhone 7 is available for INR 50000 after cash back offers and then there are 0% EMI options available easily. People prefer iPhone or Samsung's only. Even LG premium phones do not enjoy any value (no matter how many messages they send mocking Note 7 blast fiasco). India has many many intellectual IT population but terms like "pure Google" "geek phone" etc. do not resonate here !! Out of all, Google should have known that with their huge amount of market data !!
A wise man once said..."People are morons". So Google does think so too.! Google assistant is deeply integrated in the OS and will keep collecting the data of everything about you and your lifestyle. Equivalent to one is monitored by an invisible CCTV. Then Google will sell this information to businesses, and displays "targeted ads" and make lot of money. Yet, It wishes an ordinary people pay huge amount of price for the phone.
What is strange here it is, How Google thinks that they can be successful in Indian market? They failed miserably with "Android One" handsets which had the lowest price and guaranteed software update for 2 years than other manufacturers, yet they could not make it successful.
I well know that people spend money an apple phone, coz it is one of the status symbol for many and user friendly for lot. Pixel phones neither bring status and value. Since all the Google applications are available to other phones...I foresee a drastic failure of it.
Another wise man told...COVET ALL, LOSE ALL!
What have you done Google? For years, Nexus was known to offer top of the line specs at mid range prices. Value and ease of rooting were reasons people would go for Nexus phones. With this new strategy, you have alienated that audience. The 855$ price for base model of Pixel is ridiculous. even 650$ for base model is ridiculous. Why would one go for Pixel at 57000 INR when iPhones retail for the same price(knowing the 2 year support strategy of google). For rooting i'll go through some extra hassle and get OP3 or some thing in that class. The price premium simply isn't worth it even when you consider Camera quality. I think lack of sales would prompt the much needed price drop from google's end but that's gonna take a month or 2. Was so waiting for this year's Nexus and got, to quote sheldon cooper, 'Bazingaa' from google.
AnonD-593592, 05 Oct 2016This is not just a phone, I guess. Best Camera Phone ever. All Google products built in. Finge... moreSo pretty much an uglier OnePlus 3 with more storage...you can chat with the OP3 support staff via twitter/Reddit AMA btw so there's nothing special about google's support.
hoo should be 100,000 INR... What the hell is the pricing. This is too much.. release phones with 50K/ 60K etc.. then Drop the price after 3months.. cheap game by the companies.. Why the hell no genuinity in pricing... No value for money these days.. every company playing same game.. Now loosing interest in mobile phones :'(
google has lost its mind, need to fire sundar. since he came in there is no major innovation yet he wants to charge iphone price...time to fire sundar picchai
Best price for Pixel not more than USD 400.
In India not more than Rs 30,000
AnonD-593592, 05 Oct 2016It would be wise to buy it after six months when prices drop.... would be worth waiting.Don't know whether the price will be dropped or not but I think it's time to make my mind forget about this desired one... Let us see.. .
