    Here you go, Pixel by our "beloved" Google. I say they know how to advertise. What do you think?

    To me its just a bit like - hmm iphone is the best phone on the market, lets just copy it, put our name on it and sell it. Absolutely zero creative thinking from Google. Its like Google plus all over again. Rubbish.

    Looks cool to me. Although I highly doubt it's worth $800 - I heard that's the price. Regarding ad, yeah, they really now how to advertise.

    I prefer the One+ phones personally. Although I may check out the Pixel.

    But iPhones are shit. They are made for little girls and sexually confused closet boys.

    Each day, I'm more disappointed by Google and Android. The early phones all had something different going for them.
    • The G1 had a physical keyboard (it made the transition to touchscreen phones a bit easier)
    • The MyTouch 3G was a real upgrade to the G1 (more RAM, a better screen, a better battery).
    • The Nexus One was the first Android phone to come with interactive backgrounds and multi-touch out of the box.
    These days, they've run out of ideas, so they've been repackaging the same phone and calling it "new".

    Anyway, here's an article comparing the specs, which suggests my S7 is better.
    https://www.cnet.com/news/google-pixel-vs-apple-iphone-7-samsung-galaxy-s7/

    The S7 has a bigger screen, a larger pixel density, expandable storage, a better battery (non-removable), VR capabilities, and it's cheaper. In fact, if you want to save even more money, just get the S6, which I heard was slightly better than the S7 despite being older.

    I would never pay more than $300 for a phone.
    OT: Looks like an iPhone. I'll stick with LG.

    I would say my S6 is the same as my S7 apart from the S7 has a far better camera, better battery and memory card slot.

    Any phone without a memory card is just a scam imho. 256GB microsd prices will drop faster than the price of the 256GB iphone 7.

    Yes. Take something basic out of a phone, then add it back on the new "updated" version. But still, the s7 camera is really good.

    No idea. Never had an earlier model. My S7 lasts longer than iPhone 6, a lot longer.

    Well I could leave my S2 on standby for about 5-6 hours before needing a recharge. Ending up ditching it for an iPhone 4s. Regretting moving to iPhone though and looking for something decent.

    Might get an S6, (I never go for the latest until they've been out a while)
