    I am impressed with this phone. I just picked one up on Swappa and got it Friday and I love this thing. The build quality is amazing and I love the stock experience as well. I also love the screen quality and software is very smooth. This is like a third Pixel phone without the camera quality (maybe that's a stretch). Anyway, I got this as a secondary to my iPhone X for weekend use and now I don't want to touch the iPhone. Amazing what a sub $500 phone can do and I would never have guessed it with this one. I avoided it after launch because of all the bad press and now I feel like it's one of my favorite Android phones of the last year.

    It is, built and design is amazing.

    Now I realize how important weight in a phone is. It feels great. One issue I had with the LG V30 & G6.

    Having said that I wouldn't pay the original asking price for it. I only picked it up yesterday because I couldn't resist the $360 price tag.

    I agree with all the above points. Essential team knocked it out of the park with the hardware design... so much so that I gave up my s8+ and came back to the ph1. If they can nail the lil QC issues (multiple finger registers, speaker grill from first batch, camera processing) and MAYBE switch to a wide angle/regular lens set up for the PH2, I would gladly pay the 600+

    This phone is aging really well. i had to Port the pixel camera but other than that, updates have been quick and consistent, and the design and craftsmanship is holding up really well.

    picked one up on a Black Friday sale as a backup phone on a impulse. it's since become my daily driver.

    Just picked up a halo gray for 250 on prime day deal, sounds like you all are happy with it now? A little nervous with all the bad press and all . . hoping I love it and that it will work fine on Verizon 🙄

    Mine came Friday from the prime day deal. Love the look and feel of the phone. Works well, I like that there's no bloat, and its cool being on 8.1 with the July security patch. Side-loaded the pixel camera which is a definite improvement. Only thing I'm not really digging is I love the in-hand feel and form factor but felt like I needed a case for protection; now that the case is here I hate the feel, like it completely nullifies the uniqueness of the phone. So I'll probably be back and forth going with/without the case. Maybe I'll try one of those 'bags' I've heard some people use . . . Anyway, this will hold me over till Pixel 3 😉

    I use dbrand skin on the back of mine, because I also prefer it without a case. Obviously still taking a risk, but at least I've got a little texture for grip on the back that way.

    I really dig this phone and want to run naked as much as possible because of its feel.

    I'm not a fan of the choppy scrolling though. It's somewhat disorienting

    Hmm, I don't doubt your experience, but I guess I haven't encountered that issue yet . . .

    Mine is running really smooth using the lawnchair launcher. Coming from an iPhone 7plus it took a couple days to get used to the size but I'm increasingly a fan.

    Did you unlock the developer options? If not, do so and there's an option to increase scrolling sensitivity.

    Was nice to see phone and camera we're updated today. Strong support, timely updates. I'm sure we'll see Android 9.0 early in ~2 months time.

    Just got my PH-1 yesterday and I'm loving it! The build quality is excellent and the single firing bottom speaker is much louder than the one in my LG V20. Haven't played with the camera yet. Android 9 though is awesome with the gestures. Considering I only paid $100 for it with the OEM charger, 360 camera and extra usb-c cables, I'd say it's my steal deal of the year🤩

    So you're the guy in Palo Alto that beat me out? I was the first to respond to the CL ad, but live in Marin. The owner agreed to sell it to me for over $100 and ship USPS but then sold it to you instead. Oh well
