    Who cares how it rolls off the tongue? It's a forum. We type, not speak.
    How about Princess? Less to type. ;)

    I am going to have to say the Galaxy S7 Edge is the best phone of 2016. My vote would have gone to the Note 7 if not for the recall situation. The Pixel XL is my second choice, but there is too much I would have changed about the phone to call it the best phone of the year, and I still can't justify the price.

    Yeah, I can't help but think had Google either kept the Nexus pricing, had a middle ground 64GB edition, or even added in a bottom speaker this phone would have ran away with it with the Note 7 being out of commission.

    I think this is the case of Alphabet deciding to make money now vs trying to continue to build its brand off of the people who made the nexus phone where it is (was) at.

    I'm rather bummed that the latest Nexus 7 tablet has been axed all because Google couldn't get their way. I intended on purchasing one for the SO for Christmas.... but instead, she'll be getting a Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (s pen edition)
    Ya snooze ya loose Google!

    I'm abstaining from voting in these polls until someone makes a phone under 5" again with top-tier specs.

    You didn't like the pixel?

    Yeah it's technically 5.66 but has a 5 inch display.

    It's not under 5 inches but neither was the Nexus 5 which was 5.43 with a 4.95 inch display.

    I was being a bit lazy saying 5".....IMO, a near bezeless screen might push 4.9" in overall dimensions that would satisfy me. Practically speaking more like 4.7" in the 16/10 perspective without starting to get too wide.

    Prefer something with dimensions close to my Rezound, which was 5.08" by 2.58"....was ideal size, IMO (not the 4.3" screen, obviously).

    Also would like to see minimum 4GB of ram and interested in dual micro SD slots.

    Despite the price I liked the Pixel size wise. It was an awesome phone to hold.
