Very slow phone. Barely able to connect to Wi-Fi. Has an ultra rare charger cord..... Very disappointed for the $700.00++ dollars I spent on it......
I miss my Samsung

First off I think I should let me known I switch from an iPhone to the Pixel. That being said the Pixel seems to be the best Android forms to try first. There are features that would make things better tho.

1) Adding badges on apps installed on the phone. I've missed messages and missed calls because I didn't see I has missed anything.
2) Being able to add text shortcut would make texting much easier. Allowing users to add things like ty for thank you.
3) The back button being next to the send button ensures I send messages with too many errors.
4) the HD camera turns out pics with either great quality or back lighting.
5) having the battery percentage show right by the battery would a nice luxury.

1) The headphone jack being located on the top is too smart. It makes plugging aux cords less frustrating.
2) Talk to text is pretty spot on. Definitely a pro when it comes to times you can't dedicated time to proofreading before you send.

I was excited to get the Pixel. It has a really great camera. It's pretty fast functioning. I REALLY wanted this to be my next cell phone but it's not as I'm returning it. It's an EXPENSIVE cell phone. I paid $749.99 for the 128 GB Pixel. It's got ergonomics with using that I do not like. It takes more clicks to do a function that other, less costly droids, can do in one click. For example, to close all open apps, not only is that option top left screen, which is a pain but you have to swipe the multi-app down, which exposes the option to close all, THEN can close all, which is an extra step. Also, you can NOT hide apps at all and you can NOT hide photos/videos at all. If I'm going to pay TOP DOLLAR for a cell phone, I want cutting-edge stuff but, these things I'm writing about are just BASIC things. In some ways, I like the simplicity but it's TOO simple at the high cost. One positive thing is that it's easy to toggle between the two most recently used apps by double-clicking the multi-app button. I was surprised that there's actually Google support chat right on the cell but, it didn't do me any good b/c simple functions like hiding an app and photo just isn't a function the cell has. There are very few ring tones and they're frankly lame, and I can NOT differentiate ring tones for different messaging apps vs email, etc... Again, these things are BASIC things I would expect fro a cell that cost &750.00. I'm sadly returning it.
