Danny, 09 Aug 2017Google should have let HTC keep make their Pixel phones or give Sony a go because LG is just a... moreHTC is still making a Pixel 2 but the smaller one. All the design cues come from Google. Not HTC or LG.
People so obsessed with the exterior like women doing Botox. But when they don't eat the right food, they die faster. It's the inside that counts. Need to take care of that foremost.
It's the same design as the 1st gen. What's the big deal? You people think is ugly like it is the first time you ever seen it. My Pixel is the greatest phone I ever had and on the greatest network I ever had, Verizon.
Could care less what the haters say about design, design, design, design. I'm not a shallow, insecure poseur like many of you here. Inside, baby. Inside is what matters like the inside of your body.
Software-wise: Pixel 2
I prefer software experience. I don't like Samsung jank. Ruins the experience. Pixels on Verizon is the only way for me to go to. I passed my fickle stage of switching brands, OSes, and networks. Stick to one. Loyalty.
Google should have let HTC keep make their Pixel phones or give Sony a go because LG is just adding more ugliness to the original Pixel than it already is.
Momo Simon, 09 Aug 2017*wrong You only had a different taste with others people (and the designer)The original Pixel was the ugliest phone ever, I think. If the renders are true of this one it looks slightly better but the bezels are too big for a flagship and I'm not a fan of the two colors on the back.
This is the stupidest and ugliest design I've ever seen on a smartphone. Why wouldn't they pay more attention to their design language? I really can't understand because if they know that their designers are stupid then this is a problem right there. And if they don't know that then the problem is even much more complicated.
I like the red-black option :D but that wide forehead chin distract me alot. Maybe it's gonna be cheaper than other flagship?

Marorun, 08 Aug 2017all i am looking for is clean android and the best camera.
i have a feeling this will deliver... moreI got my Pixel a few days ago and the camera really is amazing and very natural (except when it pushes HDR to the max). Thanks to the image stacking that it does to reduce noise and increase resolution/quality, and thanks to the low noise reduction and natural post processing, it's the best smartphone camera. They just need to push it to 16 MP, increase sensor size to 1/1.5, add OIS, and increase aperture to 1.7, then they'll beat even one inch dedicated cameras, thanks to HDR+.
I have a Sony RX100 (1 in. camera) and it also has a Multi frame noise reduction (image stacking). It takes like 6 or so pictures and combines them into one. Really nice image quality for a one inch sensor.
The Pixel does that and I looked at its exif in low light and it goes to 4000 ISO LOL.. in order to get Its shutter speed to around 1/15, yet there's rarely any blur happening from not having OIS. The final result is still better than other smartphone cameras, at 4000 ISO.
I had an iPhone 7 and at night it used OIS and shot at 1/6 shutter speed in order to reach ~200 ISO and the result were not as good as the Pixel's 2000-4000 ISO. Image stacking is the way to go! Can't wait to see the Pixel 2. Hope they don't increase its body size, but instead, make it smaller so that I can hold it better.
Apple iPhone SE has ugly top and bottom bezels too and people call that the best iPhone design ever.
You guys are hilarious. Have your opinion of what you want in a phone sure, but don't assume it is the same for everyone or going to have an impact on selling phones.
Check out the iPhone 7. It sells just fine with big bezels. And this year, although there will be an iPhone 8, there will be a 7s too. And that phone will have the same size bezels.
A great phone experience is far more valuable than the aesthetics. Yes, it should not look terrible. But thinking it must have the most cutting edge design styling is being totally ignorant of what is actually selling.
Marorun, 08 Aug 2017I disagree on all account.
Those bezel-less phone with easy to break glass build are crap. ... moreYou can get shatterproof glass like some motos have, but that increased impact resistance comes as a trade off with decreased scratch resistance.
Now if they could coat it with some self repairing coating...
I had higher hopes for the Pixel 2. Those bezels are very disappointing!!
Calmness. It is only a render. They never do justice to the actual.
Google Pixel phone 2 will be one ugly and very unattractive phone with extremely doll design and fat bezels #why
Does really nobody understands the dimension of aesthetics in whole Google mobile division
