Also, what's wrong with plastic? It's lighter than glass or aluminum, won't break as easily as glass, won't turn into dangerous shards, and not as slippery... Plastic is a modern material. Remember when you could use a phone without anxiety of dropping it without a case?
Looks like an LG POLED crappy display. Hopefully Google will use Samsung OLED. Otherwise... pass.

Gsmarena is certainly one of the best but not the only best. Check MKBHD and other youtube videos and other media reports including users like you&me comments in the gsmarena pixel related articles.

Snapdragon 845: Octa-core (4)x(2.5) GHz Kryo (385) Gold & (4x1.6) GHz Kryo (385) Silver; GPU: Adreno (630)
Off course, it is inferior. and, Google processing is good only in picture quality but according to several media reports, all these machine learning and AI think made their app/phone significantly slower after few months of usage.
One more thing: Companies like Oppo sold devices with this processor last year (2018) and it is already halfway through 2019. How justified it is to charge that much money after 1.5 years!?!

It's for the average consumer who cares about camera quality more than chipset. So having a flagship grade camera for 450 will wipe the floor with any other phone in this price range.
LG Superfan, 28 Mar 2019Sony can charge $500 for SD636 why not Google and what more features pixel 3 has other than wi... moreBetter processor,= better back camera compared SD 6 series due to processing power, dual selfie camera, more premium... who knows what else? perhaps, bluetooth, LTE speed, wifi fast charging... might be inferior? super inferior video quality compared to pix 3.
SONY is drying up, does Google want to dry?
Similarly, if some random company can charge $200-250; is ti too difficult for Google to charge $300-350 for this lite version.
Man, the marketing and pricing team of google products is so freakin bad. They just think about profits blindly and forget that their product has nothing to attract customers.
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2019Just get an iPhone.. 7 or 8. Better deal.Will it last for the next 6 years?
Someone sitting near me in the bar said "These will sell like hot cakes"
and I spilled my Wine. hehe
LG Superfan, 28 Mar 2019I was expecting 32GB as base storage but 64 GB is great and if Sony can charge $500 for SD 636... moreAlmost, it's 430 for the 10 plus but I get what you mean. Still, without expandable storage it's a tough price to ask for
Roman, 28 Mar 2019Price is good (it's Google anyway) but what about release dates? I'm waiting for IPS device wi... moreIPS is 100% common on midrangers. Modern midrangers have good cameras too, so you have plenty of options to choose from.
Only flagships have switched to OLED & for a good reason too.
