Apple called, they said, "Thanks for the new customers suckas."
Whichever head signed off on this Pixel 2 package for release with this price tag needs to tender in his/her resignation papers. I was waiting for 2nd gen Pixels, now I will only wait longer or purchase another brand instead.
I sense some Massive price drops coming in as soon as Christmas time (or even sooner depending on how badly this bombs). Its a decent phone though, just not at this price mark.
LG-manufactured Pixel 2 XL is definitely the one to get over the two. Just hate the size. I'm selling my V20 because the size is getting annoying and holster case strap broke.
Being an Android fan for six years, I paid to unlock my iPhone SE yesterday and it will be my daily driver over my unlocked LG G5 which won't arrive until tomorrow. Only two iPhone designs ever appealed to me. Original and space gray 5s/SE. I only want black front and metal backs Perhaps matte black 7 is #3 but no headphone jack and inferior of 7 duo.
I will return to the Pixel line once they start being on par with other devices in features, better design, better value, etc. Also if I have another Windows device again. One reason I sold my Pixel was because my MacBook Air couldn't recognize it using Android File Transfer.
Looks like my 32gb space gray iPhone SE and silver LG G5 will be my duo for the foreseeable future. I'm starting to like small phones again and I consider myself a phone connoisseur who is very particular. G5 is my all-time favorite phone ever and iPhone SE is the greatest iPhone ever made.
kevin97, 04 Oct 2017The design of both phones simply makes me puke...Fully agree. Google wants to get the "Ugliest smartphone 2017" award, no matter the cost. It's even hard to tell what's uglier, the "2013 called and want their bezels back" front of the Pixel 2, or the just plain horrible back. Even after assimilating HTC like the Borg, Google still couldn't design their way out of a bag of cornflakes.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2017V30 is still the phone of the year.by seeing this phone ahm ahm by google i must say Samsung is way ahead and advanced then this only stock Android is not important no one cares for that we need features on ui ..note 8 is damn good phone out there after seeing this iphone x,iphone8,mate 10,v30 i proudly going to order samsung galaxy note 8...
It fits the market of: dull, always the same, the full package, average designed, way too expensive phones. And it will hit the same way apple does. Why? Ask yourself. Will you buy it? No, but you are nerds, will none-nerds care about "all the same again"? Well yes, and they will buy into it no matter what. This is a sad world.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2017So these are the phones made by team for which Google paid one billion american dollars.One was made by HTC and the other by LG.....duh! Dismissed! Next........!!
AI ? Seriously ?? Why waste so much on that ? How many people shout or ask AI to play **** for me ? Instead they type and get through it. If AI works then its amazing, if it fails then AI is learning your words - Wonderful excuse.
They should have just taken the LG V30, slapped stock Android in it, and volia for the new Pixel XL 2.
Instead this phone is missing features that both the V30 and Galaxy S8 have like headphone jack and wireless charging, and doesn't really bring anything special or new to the table except stock Android. What is the point of it?
So these are the phones made by team for which Google paid one billion american dollars.
The first Portrait image looks extremely fake. And no words for the killing of the 3.5 mm headphone jack...... :'(
They seriously need to stop this stupid trend of making black only shade front smartphones. Ugly and boring!
Kevin Good, 05 Oct 2017no doubt, it is fuglyWell,
looks are always subjective and it's "only" your opinion.
Kevin Good, 05 Oct 2017no doubt, it is fuglythe pixel xl looks good tho
