That excuse we used to use about being so invested in the Apple ecosystem...

We can't use that excuse anymore because we're already using Google's third-party keyboard on the iPhone.

We're already using the Google YouTube app, we're already using the Google Chrome app rather than Apple's Safari.

We use Google Maps over any other Map. Especially Apple's Maps.

We're using Google Play Music... while we delete the iPhone's Music app.

And now with Allo, Google beat them, one mo gain!

Google's apps are better than Apple's apps.

Now they have the perfect phone.

I would never use it just because it is from Google. AND, if you will check the specs it is a SLUG!

Reviews have indicated it is not that great and already outdated. Enjoy your pixie google phone, I no longer would ever use anything they have to do with!

But you already are using Google. How can you say you would never use Google products when you use it every day. I know you STAY on YouTube.

You know nothing about me. I have not used YouTube in maybe 5 years. I do not use Google products, period. You are wasting your breath on such a POS outdated phone.
You don't use YouTube?

How do you watch videos on the internet?

I'm trying to wake y'all up
At least it's clearer that you're evangelizing the Pixel.

However, I don't feel that Google apps are better on Android. I think they're perfectly fine on iOS.

If you want to promote the Pixel, you're better off talking about Google Assistant. There are some pretty good reviews out there that emphasize that point, along with the fact that you're talking about a pure Android experience:

* http://www.theverge.com/2016/10/18/13304090/google-pixel-phone-review-pixel-xl
* https://www.engadget.com/2016/10/18/google-pixel-and-pixel-xl-review/

I don't disagree that the Pixel is a good alternative to the iPhone, I just don't think much of your argument. There are better reasons to choose the Pixel over the iPhone.

Google Apps are the worst! Their apps run in the background forever for no reason, just to drain your battery.

Their iOS apps don't follow any iOS design guidelines- rather selfishly ported over Android apps! They use their own icons rather than the iOS ones so you just don't know where anything is on google apps! Selfish horrible company.

And they say Apple is bad!

It's not a google phone its made by HTC and HTC worked with google on the software skin. Google bought this product and calls it there own at least apple admits they don't make the phone and just do the software. Google would have you think they do more than marketing. They don't own one aspect of the phone except it's name.
