I'm trying to comb through all the fluff to determine why these phones cost so much....
You won't find an answer. Not worth it honestly.
Because such large bezels make it more expensive. Duh.
Wow. Good luck, Google.
Holy crap! Am I looking at the correct pricing. Are you sure this is not from an iPhone or Galaxy launch?
Google put this at iPhone pricing - even in the US. :(
UFF bye bye google, You had a nexus fan here. I will try with a chinese phone (with day dream support) when my current nexus dies.
No doubt. Price is absurd. Not a chance.
I guess I'm sticking with an android BlackBerry for a lot longer. Now way will I shell out that $ on this phone. So I don't know much about VR but will my PRIV work with daydream?
Not until we get nougat.
Thanks. So WHEN I get Nougat I get daydream. Sweet! Hopefully BlackBerry pushes it out sooner than most others.
The Priv won't get Daydream. AFAIK, only phones with SD820/821+ will be Daydream ready.
Not true - back at Google I/O, they said current phones won't be compatible with Daydream. Has nothing to do with the phone running Marshmallow vs Nougat.
I could buy a completely new PC with that amount of money
*takes one look at prices*
It's like Google wants this not to sell. They better have some crazy marketing campaign of such magnitude it will make Apple blush if they want people to consider shelling out more than $800 for it
Sticking with my Samsung s6 edge plus. I was ready to switch and buy the phone out right but those are ridiculous prices. Parts of Canada are in a major recession. Everything is always over priced due to the US dollar.
Wow. I was so looking forward to the pixel xl but they have priced it beyond the reasonable expectation. Nothing has convinced me the high price is necessary other than another billion dollar corporation being greedy. Next phone unveiling please.
Wife's contract is up next month, so I might get the 32gb Pixel for her. I think the Pixel XL would be too excessive for her tiny hands.
You can't even buy these outright from ROBELUS.. SO I only pay attention to the 2year price... I'd never buy anything carrier provided at full price. Every 2years I'll tske my new flagship at subsidized pricing..
Or is that just best buy? I was in last week asking about buying outright all they had was polorioid phones
Holy cow, $1179! That's insane for a phone
That won't receive Apple/Windows upgrade support.
Eh, nevermind. I like that phone (I think), but sure as hell not at that price.
Pixel = Premium.
Damn, I was so excited about the Pixel XL and seriously considering upgrading from my Nexus 6P if they were close to last year's pricing. But at these prices? No freaking way.
I see no good reason for such a huge jump.
What an insane pricing plan. At that price, people will just keep buying what they know, Apple and Samsung.
The rumored BlackBerry Dtek60 sounds good just about now. Posted via Android Central App
Indeed. I am digging my DTEK50 and it is an even better price. There is no need to pay exorbitant prices for mobile phones or tablets any longer.
Its on all these Canadian carriers but only Verizon in US?! I guess Verizon must have said "Okay, we will sell it at our stores, but only if you make it a carrier exclusive here in US" Verizon has been bleeding customers to T-Mobile (but not as much as Sprint). So this must have been Verizon taking a punch at T-Mobile's gut. By getting a big phone that they don't have. Oh well, doesn't matter really to me. Pixel I a bit too expensive and personally I think it's ugly. Funny if it backfires of Verizon and Google for doing that by having low sales since it seems most pure Google fans don't like it.
FOR SALE : perfectly functional kidney in original packaging, gently used. Need moola buy this stupid phone.
Write me ( I don't have a phone) at Ex-Google User, 123 No Innovation drive, Lala land.
Do you guys know if this will be compatible with either moblicity or chat? It's what I'm currently on and wouldn't want to go through the extra hassle of switching
Does anybody have a good sense of how long the wait list is from the google store? The xl was sold out within an hour or so on tues. The live chat rep said "soon"... that could mean anything ffs. I'd almost think google canada's inventory is being dictated by the canadian carriers.
Additionally, will the blue ever come to canada? If I'm going to wait a few months, I might as well get the blue one. Cheers!
Does anybody know if the Bell Pixels would be unlocked and therefore usable in the UK on one of our carriers?
