    What are the improvements that you would like to see to the Pixel? Device of the highest quality though it set out to be, no device is perfect and there are several changes that could be made to its successor.

    I just wish they wouldn't have allowed the somewhat misleading advertising tag line 'Only at Verizon'.

    Yes, exclusive to the EE network in the UK.
    I've never actually seen a Pixel.

    Edit: Since posting the above, I've seen a used one for sale, EE-locked. That's all.

    More to set it apart from other phones. Especially with Google assistant no longer exclusive. Would be nice to have a really unique and striking design.

    I actually think the phone is fairly boring looking and nowhere near as solid as the reviews claim it is. The buttons have a lot of wiggle, the phone feels "hollow" when you idly tap the back or front (it'll even vibrate) and the glass back is meh. They need a flat metal slab or a flat glass slab. Not both.

    I would like to see the volume rocker moved down from it's current location. Tired of having the volume be either fully loud or muted just from holding it.

    I'd want stereo speakers back and more juice going to the headphone jack.

    Higher IP rating (67). Use the bezels for front facing speakers. 3000 mAh in the smaller phone ( though I am really happy with Pixel battery life so far).

    Yea, I'd prefer the volume on the left side instead.

    I have to say you're the first person I have ever seen judge a phone by how it sounds when tapped lol :P.

    • Stereo front-facing speakers
    • Bring back SlimPort (or other direct screen mirroring w/o WiFi/Chromecast)
    • 4x4 MIMO LTE compatibility
    • Tango support
    • Slimmer top/bottom bezels (but still enough to hold the phone without 'accidental' presses)
    • Dump the glass back shade, or actually use real GG instead of what they purport to be GG but scratches from items of hardness well below what GG is rated against. Heck, be innovative and make the back a solar charging panel
    • 4k resolution on Pixel XL2, 2k on Pixel2, both with software to adapt resolution scale for power conservation when not needed (would be dramatic improvement for VR)
    • OIS. EIS is doing a [/I]fantastic[/I] job with video, but OIS would further improve low-light performance
    • IP 68 rating (because anything less will be offensive to some)

    In addition to the IP68 and front speakers....

    MORE VIBRATION! This phone has the weakest vibration of any device I've used. If it weren't for my smartwatch, I'd never know I have a notification.

    At first I thought I had a dud, but many others have commented on this as well.

    There is actually not that much I'm unhappy about with the Pixel. There are however a couple things i would like to see improved on
    1) As with all smartphones, i think everyone would always love a little more battery life.
    2) Optical Image Stabilisation, now i know Google explained why it doesn't have it but it helps, like a lot. So i would like that to be in there for the next found.
    3) Slimmer bezels. It doesn't have to be drastically thinner. Just a little thinner to reduce the overall footprint... and... Google don't reduce the bezels and then increase the screen size lol.

    Thats my 3 things

    Pixel 2
    I would love to see

    1) IP68 rating
    2) Better vibration motor
    3) Slimmer bezels which leads to larger display. Start at 5.2 for reg Pixel 2 then 5.7 for the XL
    4) Start at 64GB storage or at least add the option
    5) Wireless charging
    6) bigger battery!
    7) Camera improvements like OIS, wide angle front and back
    8) SD Card I know Google will never do it but I still want to see it :-)

    Then release it on all carriers in the US not just Verizon.

    I agree with most of your list except for wireless charging. I like that feature, but so far no one has been willing to implement wireless charging with a metal body; it typically leads to glass. I'd much rather have a solid metal body rather than wireless charging, if that's the choice.

    it's not 4k, does have 4G RAM, 30 feet cable is a bad idea - charging and data speeds would be super slow.

    I think this is a perfect list! The only thing I would like to add to the list is a dual rear camera setupツ

    Mostly, I just want unlocked bigness, 6" worth of bigness in the display, so I'm hoping the Taimen model, if it exists, does not end up being a tablet. No.s 3, 6 & 8, I don't care about but wouldn't grumble about as long as there's either a good pair of front-facing speakers or a U-11-quality Boomsound setup on the phone. I would also really prefer a 16/9 form factor on the display, but I'm sure Google's gonna go 18/9. I'll resent the hell out of them for it, but if I get the right size and the speakers, I'll still pony up the coin.

    It'd be nice if Google made the Pixel launcher a bit more Nova-flexible and added a damn dark theme option, but now I know I sound crazy, so I'll move on.

    I'm also hoping they stick to 16:9 this year. Let the app community start putting out apps that scale great on 18:9 and then move to that if we have to... but I still want a flat display too.

    Not sure, less than 100 million out of 2 billion smartphones out there have curved displays, so something like 95% or more are still flat.

    I meant we are in the minority for hoping they stick with "flat" glass. I put that in quotes because even the current model has slightly curved glass.
