    Google Pixel delivers an experience good enough to be my Top Android Phone of 2016!

    It is your prerogative!!! This phone is selling out all over the place!!! Delayed and on Back order!!! I going for it just waiting for it to get delivered!!! I have friends that already have it that are Nexus heads and they love it. No issues except for the Halo affect! No problems on Verizon LTE!

    Some Google Pixel users are having issues with LTE connectivity

    It's only sold out because carriers can finally sell it.

    I have to slightly agree with Mustang. The only reason this phone is getting the love it is getting is because of the Note 7 going "fire bomb"


    Look I loved the look of the pixel/pixel XL and will likely buy a pixel later down the line. But I just feel like Google did what they did 2 years ago by trying to go premium but lacking in a few areas to command premium pricing. To me that phone screams Nexus pricing. If that phone was priced at 649 for the 128version it would have been a winner.

    In fact @Preach2k if the Note 7 was still available (say Samsung had a solid fix) which would you choose?

    PC747 The Note Series will always be my first choice. Then the Pixel ,followed by the V-20. I had hands on with the Pixel and I liked it over the LG-V20.

    I think its performance is obviously it's biggest plus to the phone ...no phone is perfect and there are always some things you don't like but end of day you have to be happy with it as your daily driver ... I truly believe next year will be a big upgrade for the Pixel !
