Holy cow people are a bunch of whiners around the internet. Have a Pixel on preorder? Excited for a top notch Google phone?? This is the start of an awesome line of phones. I miss the Nexus but there is no competing with OPO and the Chinese phone makers. Google sees that. Hell IBM got out of the PC business long ago for the same reason. It is a failed business model with no profits. So here is to the new life for Google hardware. I really think they hit it out of the park here and can't wait to get imine in a couple of weeks!! --- Post Merged, Oct 4, 2016 --- Reading more about this, especially the AP article, there is no doubt Google is changing what the Android experience means. They have tuned this device in every way to be the perfect compliment to their OS and services. Beyond what the Nexus ever did in the past. This is where Samsung and Google divide. They are now direct competitors. Very exciting day for all phone fans. --- Post Merged, Oct 4, 2016 --- Google claiming the lowest touch latency on any Android device and fastest HDR processing. Tall order but given the specs certainly possible. Basically they really can't put many of these features on the 6p because the phone couldn't handle it. Better memory, SOC, and GPU and most likely just far better comments throughout.
