You proudly remove them and call it the future then make adapters for what you removed, what do you call that? Backwards thinking
I wonder if guy in black Audi did beat you up... Seems to be rather angry one.
Well, this phone has good camera, speakers and performance, but huge bezels, no 3.5 jack, mediocre battery life, and high price. No thanks.
Also you forgot to mention in conclusion:
Honor 9, XZ1C, Mi6, 1+5, Nokia 8. They are all cheaper than this pixel and can give you more.
i was waiting for this phone and review, but i'll pass.
no jack, meh design, meh battery, high price.
i can get a used S8 for less and get more phone, and a camera that isnt far off, plus you can install the modded version.
i can get a new XZ1C and get more phone, and you can also install the modded hdr cam, no wireless charging and fantastic battery life

okcnaline, 06 Nov 2017Alternative could have been an Xperia XZ1 Compact...This one has the size of XZ1.
Strange that GSMArena didn't include the Nokia 8 as an alternative. I think that would be a great comparison.
And to the GSMArena team, before you start complaining about bezels and rounded screen corners, please double-check the article's spelling and grammar before posting. That might be more important than nitpicking.
Good phone but no 3,5mm jack is a joke, especially with such bezels.
Adapters are not the solution, 3,5mm and BT live perfectly together.
