    welllll........the pixel range of smartphones don't have an appealing look especially the half-glossy design back cover, the design team should make it more stunning to look at.

    Curious to see what can be done with the display on the back.

    The 5" form factor would something that would appeal to me,but I suspect it will cost silly money(for me at least).

    Once ground braking tech into their phones are now becoming a twist on vintage !

    No doubt a high price tag on them too.

    No headphone port = no sale for me. I had to shed all my hatred for over-zealous Android skins and get an S8 this time round. Never had to hack my HTCs as they were mostly bloat free and what there was generally was useful. Samsung make great phones but frankly their bloat is horrendous and they just don't seem to get the message. Luckily a little hack here and a little tweak there and the most annoying of it goes away. I think pure Android is a little daft as there are some features which both HTC and Samsung have added which are genuinely good. I would just like the skin to be as minimal as possible, have options to turn off things like Bixby and have certain features opt in rather than opt out - i.e. I'll install them if I want them, just let me know they exist not having to go to great lengths to stop them chewing through resources and nagging you all the time.

    Having just bought a OnePlus5, so being inherently biased, I wonder why you'd buy a Pixel?

    Why is the Yotaphone shoehorned into an article regarding the Google Pixel?! There is no connection whatsoever. Hope the pay was good.

    It does just suddenly appear and it's not even used as a comparator, it's just 'there' xD
