Last year's Pixel was a bit of a let down in the fact that for the price it was kind of plain in the features department. Last year's Pixel was more about the software experience and less about the premium features. The Pixel lacked wireless charging, and waterproofing which are both becoming standard features in flagship devices.

It looks like the Pixel 2 will pick up a few flashy features including an Always On Display and IP68 dust and water resistance. We will likely still not see wireless charging and it looks like the phone will be ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack. Which features do you value most in a new flagship device? Are waterproofing and an Always On Display justification for Google's recent upward pricing trend?

I was heavily considering getting the next iteration of the Pixel as a replacement device of my Nexus 6P. But without wireless charging I will likely hold on to my device or look else where. Glad to see they are adding waterproofing at least though

Headphone jack > always on
Headphone jack > wireless charger
I get why you say it I just cannot bring myself to agree.

my LG g6 has a headphone jack, guess how much I've used it.

yeah... not once, same with my V20... I use BT for everything now. and a small adapter is better if I absolutely needed one...

unlike the rumor, it will not board a Snapdragon 836 processor, enhanced version of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835.
