The XL will do particularly well as it will pick up a lot of the Note 7 buyers, who now will not touch a Note 7. The reason they have moved away from the Nexus name to to get away from the good value association the Nexus handsets have. So don't complain about how expensive it is...
BEST buy have it for 399. But it's on a plan. I'll look around in a month nor best unlocked price. Won't change from my beauty of an A9 just yet. But admittedlIy I would like a Pixel.

Base price 1400 up. Pixel is less cost all round in most cases. I shop smart and research more than most but that was not the point. It was mostly on perspective of the complaints. While some have a good point and taken on board, it's a matter of perspective. I work in retail and marketing and it's incredible how you can put something at a price and people complain. In some instances for argument sake you test and put it at half the price without listing it as marked half, but just as if normal or shown for that matter to see and some still want more or whinge. It's just the way it is. 1St world problem. Gee, everyone was happy with the powers and value for phones years ago but today's powers and they not mega intergalactic time machines in their pockets. I'm relation to price here, you see so may say billions to apple for what has been over past years not the best spec but they lined up overnight to clasp at their idols. I like them too but pixel is a more than capable phone and if you watched the detailed live stream, one can appreciate what their getting in this classy unit. It is not a spec war and is still cheaper than iPhone. In Oz and Toronto unlocked.

Android phones are plenty . Your statement makes no sense. Plus the iphone 7 plus optical zoom is a killer with no detail loss.
AnonD-35392, 06 Oct 2016Given the prices of the pixels compared to similarly specced competitors like the oneplus 3 I ... moreIn my country the lg g5 is currently selling at 410 usd with 2 years warranty and for extra 30 usd you get a special warranty in case it breaks and they do not repair it 5 days and you get full refund. This pixel is a joke. The price is just ridiculous. Some peeps say that this is fine because iphones are also expensive but they forget the fact of the os exclusiveness. 4m units is just too optimistic.
70% of the units will be sold in the US,the rest in Europe.It's great progress but i don't know if it will make a good influence on the Chinese and Indian market that are major influence in smartphone industry.Still,great news.
People complain about price. Well complain about iPhone being $1500-2000 in Australia. It is a wonder their is not a revolt. I like iPhone, but no, not at that level. I would rather the AI, camera, specs of pixel.
so google is trying to help htc. good, but bring the NEXUS back! made by LG.
That's all good news. Let's just be happy with those positives. Great for market, HTC and Google. It is the beginning of big things. Stay away from negative people, they have a problem for every answer
AnonD-35392, 06 Oct 2016Given the prices of the pixels compared to similarly specced competitors like the oneplus 3 I ... moregood point..even if one one plus breaks...you can get 2 more at the price of this.....
on the other hand all flagships are at around this cost now, and probably google removed the nexus name because ppl expect nexus devices to cost like mid rangers with top specs...
additionally..these phones are a vanilla htc flagship??? hmm that may explain the price
Given the prices of the pixels compared to similarly specced competitors like the oneplus 3 I think you have to be mad to buy the pixel.
that's a nice figure! hope they get there, still i wonder how much % will the phones that they "sell" to their own company workers and people in the enviorment would be (guessing around 7% of total) still wish them the best luck since there're a lot of hatred for the devices being either the price or the bezzels (bottom)
