Wait they're releasing a phone now? Might look at it later.

Haven't owned an Android phone since 2011 beacuse I didn't like the UI, but it's probably much different now.

I don't really mind either OS on Android and apple. New Android versions are nicer than the previous ones.

Yea Google are trying to rival iphone 7 and Galaxy s7 with Pixel.

Unlimited photo storage should really make some of my Apple friends sit up and take notice of this phone.

#1 complaint from them about iPhones is they never have enough storage space. Apple will probably be forced to offer this now if Pixel ends up actually giving them a run for their money, I would imagine.

Apparently the camera is ranked as the best ever on a smartphone as well....although that seems a little sensational to me.

Not sure if it has a better camera than HTC desire 10. But Google seem pretty confident. Not sure about the motion blur though Laughing

89 rating on that test where iP 7 got 86 apparently. Not entirely convinced.

--

Pricing here in DE/EU seems to be 759 base for 32GB. 869 for 128GB, but with unlimited backup for photos and videos in original quality (they had another potshot at Apple with a iP pop-up space warning Laughing ) makes me wonder if 32 would already be a sufficient option.

They also took a dig at Pixels having 'no uncomfortable camera bump' rofl

--

Disappointed that there are no release dates on Home in DE/EU.

--

Also, Google Assistant blew Siri out of the water - them Google AI, machine learning, and contextual processing capabilities are jizzworthy!

Only natural Google Assistant will be more powerful than Siri. It has Google entire knowledge-base behind it. Siri doesn't. Foregone conclusion, that.

Pre-order on Verizon and they gift a Daydream VR free with it.

And not even available in Europe. FFS.

Got a pre-order link on email for Google Home, and it redirects me the DE store which says that it is unavilable.


---

With Amazon Echo launching in EU around now, it would have been really smart to get Home off the blocks quickly.

Alexa only works in German if I order in DE. No option to change language.

That's another aspect where Google can score points!

Lol. Its ridiculous the useless hype the pixels are getting. I mean, a phone that's almost $1,000 while offering considerable less than the competition. No wireless charging, no water resistance, no dual ff speakers, no ois, big bezels, probably one of the ugliest flagship designs of all time.. I lost all hope for DXO mark a long time ago, so saying the pixel the best camera of all time is completely crazy tbh. Infact isn't the timing of their rating suspicious to you guys?

The only thing google has going for it is the google assistance that's probably thesame as google now and fast updates. Yet have the balls to charge apple prices. Yes iphones are *bleep* expensive but they at least have the brand name, cult following and the fact that the IOS is exclusive and top notch to cover tim cooks ass

11. Fantastic design

All top Apple apps are on Android.

Theres bare bones to differentiate on the specs side. Would be interesting to see how many of the Pixel screens crack at the first fall (did someone mention amazeing design and build quality? Lol) or how many batteries start exploding - but sure, let us ignore these things.

Design is subjective - beauty in the eye of the beholder as the saying goes.

There are many features in Pixel that you have conveniently forgotten to list above. For me this phone is not about the hardware, it is about what the software brings to the table to leverage that hardware.

Unless conclusive benchmarks are conducted, it is rather hard to rate iPhone7 or Pixel. All we have now is previews and the first hands on reviews. But sure, let's jump the gun and start hating it already.

Or better still, lets all go spend on brand name, cult following and the fact that the IOS is exclusive - amazing reasons to spend 1k$.
