I have a better marketing idea for this piece of overpriced, hyped junk. How about they charge $35 for the case and throw in the phone for free?
Instead of huge price cut due to its flop sale and loosing trend. they offered you a free case instead :) awesome strategy to convince average folks to buy. :)))
They'll have to offer me a free Galaxy Note 8 to get me to but a Pixel
Wow! What a reason to buy a phone. OK, Pixel is a great phone, and u may argue that deal is not a reason, it just add some extra value. But hey! Phone cases are not worth anything above 10$ and even the 35$free is meaningless with that price of phone.
The Pixel and Pixel XL are a joke.
I'd take the Nexus 6P with updated specs anytime (QSD 820+, IMX378).
The ZTE Axon 7 for instance is a decent alternative to the SGS7, HTC 10, Pixel XL, and LG G6.
I'm using Pixel without case cuz I'm planning change phone after 2-3 year's
