I love my nexus 6p and 5x. . . But for this pixel and XL, its a pass. . . A bit sad coz i loved what google always comes out with for the past years. . .
the software would be fine, fun, easy, and comprehensive, but I don't really like the design. for the camera cut out, this is a new good design; however, the body of the phone looks indifferent from others, esp iPhone which i don't really like.
yeah u can view the comparison here http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=8346&idPhone2=8345&idPhone3=6604 and BTW pixel has really huge bezels
AnonD-190141, 05 Oct 2016Can't compete with what? You must be kidding. Think you're using the SG Nexus, right? Can't compete with other phones with that price tag. If it'd be £100 cheaper than the competition (Sammy, HTC and so on...) It's way too overpriced. We'll see how Google will manage to keep up the prices like Apple does. Apple pays up, I wonder if they'll do the same which I doubt, but since this is an 'All new' flagship, we'll see...
With these expensive products, it's always a good thing to think about the price it'll cost in 6 months.
DonAlduck, 05 Oct 2016I'm disappointed in Google. Although, i like the design and the features that are included...t... morePrecisely...
But its good to see HTC claiming back their antenna lines...
The price tag is another issue...
It is overpriced, does not have micro SD card (shame!!!) And has low fhd resolution. Seriously, what's up with pricing in 2016???
With the device not supposed to have any water proofing then there is no need to use glue for assembly thus the device should be easy to disassemble to replace the battery tho not explicitly user replaceable.
HTC ruined it again! look at that thickness but small battery? camera is still 2.0 aperture? Here comes the era where google will slowly fall down

I'm disappointed in Google. Although, i like the design and the features that are included...the lack of any IP certification (for me, it is a huge plus to at least withstand rain, this may lack the certification and may have it...but still) and the huge price tag does not make up to its name. It sure is premium, but it just can't compete with others.
Google tried hard to hit on Apple, but i have a feeling that they're not going to get any close to their expectations. (in terms of sales with those prices) - well, we'll see.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2016But didn't Apple copy HTC in the first place? Good question. HTC is da bomb
At first i was horrified about all the poorly made decisions regarding the Pixel phone, but then it dawned on my this is a phone for casuals, not for geeks. I just hope google realizes they will need SERIOUS marketing to make a dent into Apple's and Samsung's mind share, and are prepared for several years of losses.
Lol this phone is quite ugly and very bland looking.
Loving my Axon 7 even more after seeing this phone.
Bmwdrvr, 04 Oct 2016The One Plus 3 has 6gb RAM AS WELL AS dash charging, however Tate a look at the AXON 7 before ... moreThanks mate true that :) I would love to get the Axon 7 but unfortunately i'm in one of those regions where it isn't sold :( also there's a strange shortage of Motorola devices in my area... i figured i'd get the OP3 since aside from being light-years better than the google pixel the retailer is also offering 2 years warranty.
WOW, i saw the photos and the specs and thought it wasn't too bad given it was a cheap device.....WRONG.
In Australia the Pixel XL is $1419 for a 128GB version.... the GN7 was only $1300 odd with 64GB+ 256GB memory card.
I don't know what google is thinking but this is an epic fail.... whats with those massive bezels and the looks???
