Last year Google: lololololol we have a 3.5" jack!!!!111
This year Google: We remove it for a better audio experience 🤪
apertotes, 31 Oct 2017A fine phone, but no match (sadly) for Samsung's Galaxies and their unbelievable screen, micro... moreThey can offer the most iphone like experience with their update lifetime and schedule. Nothing like the bang for buck devices the nexi were. Many consumers think things are inferior if they're cheaper, but they need more advertising to sell many at these prices.
It does have a selling point of having small-ish bezels and stereo speakers, and a light and fast UI.
A fine phone, but no match (sadly) for Samsung's Galaxies and their unbelievable screen, micro-sd and wireless charging. And they are even cheaper.
I dislike the direction Google is trying to steer Android. The new Google Now is a disgrace to what once was leaps and bounds above the competition. Reminders are still half-baked and are not consistent in Inbox, Keep and Calendar. Don't get me started on the messaging apps travesty.
Google is trying to build the Android iPhone. But that is not what many of us want.
Daylight samples look more processed than Pixel :(. More contrast, more artifacts, and more noise reduction, sigh. It did need more noise reduction but they went too far. Pixel is more natural: https://www.gsmarena.com/piccmp.php3?idType=4&idPhone1=8720&idPhone2=8345
Daylight far grass is now mushy compared to the Pixel :(. That's sad. Bad direction Google.
Typical, every manufacturer is becoming worse with post-processing (cell phones only).
Why are there no mentions of the Nokia 8 or the potential of the Nokia 9?
Either way, I'd rather get either of those or maybe LG G6 or HTC U11 than this phone; nothing about it (just like with Samsung's and Apple's phones) makes me even want to consider it.
Oh, O.K. - if it was ~300e cheaper, sure, I'd consider it then!
