its april 2018. ive had the galaxy s7 edge and more recently htc u11, i just bought the pixel xl this month and boy you weren’t wrong about its camera and software. its blazingly fast. i especially notice it when opening multiple apps, my homescreen icons would not disappear for s quick second unlike my htc u11 which refrshes the icons after several apps are open. the selfie camera is truly the one to beat! by far the best selfie camera ive ever tried. google camera algorithm beats iphones and other androids in the entire world not exaggerating one bit imo.

Samsung always have had the same problems, their software gets very laggy after time and their batteries are useless. Their adverts are nice though. Not sure im keen on the long edge screen either, I dont like big bezels but the phone been all screen, either doesn't work for me or i'm not ready for it

I got my 128GB XL today and I love it. Smooth as butter.

After about a year when your warranty is over, Google will send an update that will get your phone stuck in a bootloop. Recovery mode or factory resets won't work and you will have to change the motherboard. It just happened to me. I have completely changed my mind about Google phones. I have warned.

is there a reason to buy pixel now?
Carla Valeria (5 months ago)
I bought it and after exactky three weeks it started to restart randomly. I asked Google and Verizon about it and they told me because I left USA I can no longer get the warranty and now Im stucked with it, restarting almost a dozen times a day, at least. I started to research about it and its a pretty common problem. I guess is hardware? I really hate this phone, tbh
Magnum (5 months ago)
Not load apps as fast haha. Go check out the Pixel with Android 8.0 or .1 and see it just blazing through everything. Kids never trust theses video.

O.G. pixel XL 128 gig very silver! The only bad thing about this phone is almost a year later it is still way too good to get a new one! Oreo 8.1 Google lens, it's the gift that keeps on giving!

got a Pixel XL in an ebay bid for $250...now I'm just waiting patiently for it to come in the mail next week ~.~ I mean I liked my G4 and my current S7 edge but the Pixel XL stole my heart and I do not even have it in my hands yet :D

The S8 shits all over it, its hardware is completely inferior.

I hope they bring back the speakers. The Nexus 6p will always be the best phone.
Michael Newcomb (6 months ago)
I had a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge from Verizon and had it for a few months. Once Google released the Pixel I purchased the unlock version of the XL and always come back to the XL. The only reason I ever switch back and forth is because of the design of the S7 Edge and the water resistance. But I always come back to the XL because of the software experience as well as the camera and screen quality.

Skied phone like samsungs should always have 2gb more ram so it should come with 6gb just to stop the stutter.
Cameron Daniels (7 months ago)
I have a Pixel and it's by far the best and most usable phone I've ever had. I had Sony Xperia's going back to 2011 and there is no competition.

1:20 doesn't that degrade the call quality? I mean wasn't the intention of the glass back panel to improve cellular reception?

One of the main reasons I switched back from android to iPhone is because of Music. I absolutely hate the way Google Play Music is designed and Spotify looks amazing isn't as capable of everything I want in a music player. Apple Music provides everything I could ever need! Huge library that includes works from prog artists that Google and Spotify won't even touch, plus the ability to edit metadata once the music is in your library as well as the ability to upload your own personal library to fill in any gaps. Another thing is, I got a Mac recently and iPhones just connect so seemlessly with a mac. One feature I love to death is Air Drop. It's so quick and effortless. A friend of mine and I had macs set up. No Wifi, just next to each other. And Airdrop let me send a file to him instantly. Also, I originally didn't like the way Google organized my mail.... until I found a way to fix it. But still. I like Apple's mail app. Other than that, I love Google Calandar, Google Photos, Google Maps much better than Apple's default apps. But that's the thing. Apple has Google apps. But Google doesn't have any apple apps. I do remember seeing Apple Music on there, but I don't remember it being as good as the built in Music player for iPhones. Now. for a phone, it's a toss up. I love things about iPhones, I love things about Androids. But when it comes to tablets, there is still no comparison. iPad, is hands down the best tablet out there. So maybe, once I get my iPhone all paid off, I can get a budget Android Phone and switch between the two whenever I feel like it. Or use the iPhone for some things and the Android for others.
SHEHZAAD (7 months ago)
iPhones finally got a real worthy competitor. Now the battle is direct between Apple & Google. I'm an Apple fan but i think Pixel already destroyed iPhones in all aspects. Google really rocks and they should've come earlier in smartphone-making, there would be no chance for Apple & Samsung then. Pixel proved it.

I can't wait for the next pixel phone. I'm on the iphone 6 right now and I've grown to hate it mostly because of how boring it is, frame drops, and the screen is horrendous for media consumption when compared to OLED phones with much higher resolution. My favorite phone of all time is the google nexus I had years ago. I can't wait to go back to google.

I love that pixel phone
Nicole Foxen (7 months ago)
As a phone i love it and how it utilizes its hardware to power the software, but my biggest nose turn is the fact that android removed all option of any ui other than sun burning white after android 4.1. Apple now has theming support yet android has a staggering 98% of individuals (taken on 3 polls across different communities) that would love to see a dark theme and still resort to sony for a substratum fix for nonrooted devices as the pixel is a pain to root. Overall though i do love the phone, build quality leaves the simplest repairability in any phone ive ever owned, and with the integration of android 8.0 oreo, im hoping they will be quick to fix some of the bugs that have wiggled into some of googles apps along with that os.from google keep making you write in the tiniest boxes to phone restarts when entering a dead zone, my reliance in google has taken a turn in the more recent months. Hopefully things will look up in the future for this beautiful device.

That bullshit never was the best Android phone! Galaxy S8+

Stephen Gushev (7 months ago)
I have the Google Pixel, not the XL and its the best phone I've ever used. Mind you my only other phones have been the Blackberry Curve 9300, HTC One S and HTC One M8. The Pixel is just an amazing, smooth user experience. Easy to do things and get shit done. Amazing camera. Speaker could be a lot better. One thing I hate about the texting app though Android Messages is not being able to highlight specific words and letters instead of just the entire message in the convo. Otherwise totally love everything about this phone.
Nope not even close. Huge bezels. Boring stock android. Iphone look alike. Not to mention the back of phone the ugliest I've ever seen

I'm honestly stuck between waiting for the Pixel 2, or pulling the trigger on getting the OnePlus 5.

which video editor u use to edit ur videos?????
plummz (7 months ago)
Just bought a Pixel today. It was cheaper on a contract than buying one sim free. I already love it, I've owned 2 previous Nexus phone and I missed pure android. I love it already. Total integration, plug in your old phone and everything even music and podcasts is transferred over. Brilliant. I do need a case though!

This is the phone I would get if I were to switch from iOS. The back of the phone needs to be re-designed though.
Jacob Frank (9 months ago)
And then there's the people who don't always have phones on hand to switch between, and end up sticking to one phone...
