  • Its bloody expensive. Period. Nexus phones are about being a mix of great hardware & stock software along with an affordable price tag. This shouldn't have been any different.
  • True. For that price, don't see anyone buying it over an S7 edge or the iPhone 7.
  • Exactly.
  • Is that an officially stated price, or from a source?
  • Official from Google. Wouldn't be writing it otherwise.
  • This is exactly the reason why google want to up it's game so that they don't hear such statements (IMHO). They don't want you to buy a phone just coz it has great specs and costs less instead they are trying to build a brand (I guess that is the sole reason they changed it from Nexus) that iPhone has built over the years. They are marketing it as a premium product and as is the case with other premium products; it has got a price tag to it!! That said, we will definitely have to see how this phone holds up to those promises and the initial impressions are really looking good.
    On a side note, the only plus I see for iPhone in this case is the water resistance, that's it, google has been quite competitive in rest of the fronts and if you take the battle of google assistant vs siri; google is closing in at a pretty darn good pace (basis the personal experience)
  • Premium product with a garbage design.
  • **** yeahh man. Someone should tell google to stop making bill gates ****..
  • The pricing ($649 vs $855) is as ridiculous as the iPhone pricing in India.
  • This will be the first significant setback to Google's otherwise rosy India story: Android does not have the platform pull iOS commands (and demands). And at that price, every user will by default swivel to the iPhone instead. Sorry, Google, you bungled this up.
  • I would buy a bike I think.
  • True That :)
  • With price drop of S7 edge and S7 most people rather buy that same specs better camera...water proofing and sd card slot
  • That's true. Or they'll consider the 6P.
  • I'll definitely be taking a look at the 64GB for next purchase. Especially if it gets a price drop.
  • The pricing is daft. They won't sell anything and then sink the business under the cost of those service centers.
  • Really a huge set back in a country like India. You really have to aim for a reasonable price aroung 40k-45k
  • It's expensive, but they're offering unlimited cloud storage dedicated toll free number in settings menu and of course android updates for may be 3 or more years so there are reasons for this phone to be expensive
  • Google simply lost their touch.
  • I'm waiting to see if people really buy that phone in India. I agree, it is a great phone but it is very expensive too and with India being one of the countries that is crazy about Samsung and Apple, I don't see this phone selling much.
  • Wow... That's a lot of Rupees... It's expensive everywhere, but it looks like Google really want to put India over a barrel.
  • Too expensive for Indian market. I agree Google wants to distinguish pixel as a branded technology like Apple or Samsung or HTC but its hard to see people buying this over Samsung galaxy s7 or even the new iPhone's or HTC 10. Both Samsung and HTC offers much more features at reduced price now. Also the only upside will be the software updates and tech support and apple's much ahead in those two departments compared to Google.
