Also reading 7.1 will rely heavily on the cloud...but no real details.

Pixel camera scored 89 on dxomark. Iphone 7 was at 86. HDR+ is awesome.

50℅ increase in photo, voice and text translation and recognition.

7hr battery life in 15mins

Unlimited storage of video and pictures at full resolution for pixel owners on google cloud.

Same specs on both phones except screen size.

Every pixel comes with a cable for transferring from iphone to google. Everything gets transfered including imessages.

New duo messaging app will allow video chat across all OSs.(not sure about apple)

3 colors. Black, white and blue. They fucked up on the blue and have a white front....if it was black front with blue back I'd have that shit ordered today.

Fi network compatible. VR ready. Preorder starts today.

Google assistant will use on screen apps to determine what you want. For example if you had a restaurant name in a text message open on the phone, you could hold the home button and say "make a reservation" and it knows you are talking about the restaurant in the text

Duo isnt a big deal as its already available and isnt pixel related.

The pricing is ridiculous tho.

Well i highly prefer a sd card slot. But there are apps now to sync phone and my home cloud instantly so it may not be a big deal anymore. And honestly I don't know if I want to deal with the note 7 and wait until they crack the bootloader for full root and that is really the only new phone with a sd slot.

The pixel camera gave me a slight boner and I'd love to go back to pure android. I do hate that it looks so much like an iphone

Honestly when I replaced my 5x earlier this year, there only thing that didn't transfer to the new phone was texts, and I never back them up with anything.

I paid $399 for my OnePlus 3...it doesn't skimp on much compared to the $600+ phones (has Snapdragon 820, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of built in storage, etc.)

I really think $399 is the sweet spot for off contract phones.

Pictures are backed up in Google photos, can access all of them. Although, some apps only recognize what's on the phone, you can easily download from photos if you need to share or something.

Thats my second grjpe. I don't want to use google for backups. I don't want my data, pictures or videos on their services.

I would be ok with a price like that as well. But seems the cost of these phones is going up due to the hardware. And the retail prices are climbing. That is why the companies are pushing for leasing options with their contracts. But buying a phone outright with the right contract can be way cheaper over a two-year term. I am a year away from the end of my contract. I am interested to see what phone prices look like then. At least these phones are so good they are not changing by leaps and bounds where you feel the year old phone you have feels way outdated.

After I saw the price $649.... I just cant. Op3 is very high on my list even if I can't use quickcharge and no 7.0 confirmation.

But right now I'm back in love with my note 4. It does everything I need right now, but I wish it was the size of a s7.
