everything has it's price. for some reason google put its effort and price on design and camera. also screen is more dense than chinese phones. so if it were not for interface(actually most important thing for me -I love htc sense) i would give a damn high score to it.

pixel is stupid expensive
Nick.B, 30 Oct 2016Hate both pixel and pixel xl honestly. 800$ for what ? You can get same performance in 600$ phoneCamera is the main selling point. And I am not sure whether this phone performs better than OnePlus 3 or not, maybe more snappier, smoother, don't know.

Anonymous, 29 Oct 2016Google has set the first nail in IPhone 's coffin with PixelIn other words, there's just enough stupid people to buy this overpriced junk, you know, like the iPhone?
Camera seem to have higher resolution than SGS6 despite declared 12 mp vs 16 mp. But a bit noisy.
Anyway, it's not a player for that price, thank to ugly design and because it won't be available worldwide, only on limited markets in limited quantities.
Selling android to others and also promoting pixel.. What a situation .. If they win android is selling .. If pixel wins still android is selling +hardware is selling
AnonD-448401, 30 Oct 2016you are right my friend but in low light and stills,eis is not that good like ois so.....Ehhhhh....maybe?
To test this we'd need to use a third party camera on the pixel (one that means use of the eis, assuming that is a feature Google is exposing) and see how high we can push the exposure. I'm not aware of any reviews that have attempted this.
As it is, it takes amazing low light photos, and if there's motion happening in that low light situation, there's no phone on the market that can match its results (surprisingly, it can push up its ISO to unexpectedly high levels before quality becomes crap).
You can, somewhat, fault the pixel for not going ALL OUT with the hardware, but the camera (even considering the lens flare issue) had really lived up to their hype (even if it's not THE BEST CAMERA, it's inarguably one of the best, and a nice step up from the 6p).

The videos coming from Pixel are robotic sort of stable, and it also has that jittery effect when the camera is panned, which won't be present on hardware OIS. I will take that over excessively smooth stabilisation.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2016Lumia 950XL has a better camera than the pixel. Your own comparison tools prove this GSMArena.Mobile phone cameras have their own limitations. Either they need to work like Moto Z Play/Force Hassleblad like accessories or with good software and image enhancements. With tiny sensor and questionable image quality photography in mobile phones cannot go beyond appoint. Even display size, resolution and AMOLED screens parking its spec. Processors and RAM reaching a point where further upgrades are becoming challenging. Google Pixel and XL though bit expensive like iPhone it is worth an attempt. These nit picking is applicable for all flagship models!! God Note 7 should have become a success!!
