Do not buy

I have had a good pixel for less than a year. In that time I have been send two replacement phones because my original and the first replace have had so many issues. I picked up my third pixel today and it had more problems than the last two. I contacted support and they told me the phone I received today is out of warranty and left the support chat.

Can only hear callers on audio

Reviewed on Sunday September 9, 2018 by , London
I have had the Pixle for just under a year and experienced the same problem with the audio, at first I could only hear calls on loud speaker, this was fixed after spending 40 minutes on the phone to customer services and clearing caches. The next day callers couldn't hear me or I then even if on loud speaker. I have never dropped the phone so am wondering how this has happened? Google have confirmed that they will exchange it (probably for a refurbished one) but I'm still quite disappointed that this is a well known problem that retailers are choosing to ignore. I purchased the phone through Dixon Currys who sent me from pillar to post and finally agreed to repair if I was happy to wait over 4 weeks for a diagnostic test.

Audio problem can't make basic calls or listen to music

Reviewed on Friday August 24, 2018 by , OH
I've been having problems with my phone with the audio/mic not working for the past couple months and already contacted customer support. The problem will fix after clearing my cache and restarting my phone very often but won't work again. I haven't even tomake calls for the past months so whenever someone calls me I answer the phone but the other line won't hear me and vise versa. I usually just end up txtng them. A couplsonths have passed and I thought it will be fixed with a new software release of some sort but still not working. I had enough and ended up buying a new one (I don't know why I should stick with pixel again despite of the bad experience I had and frustration). Perhaps because I didn't want to switch to another carrier and content with project fi and the convenience that I can contact customer support anytime I want and don't have to deal with waiting in queue for hrs. The only good thing about the phone is the camera and the unlimited storage I get but other than that I can't use the basic thing of contacting people or listening to music or videos through my apps. Can't even take videos with my phone anymore. It's very frustrating!
