    I'm really hoping it's not going to be a pain in the butt to purchase from the play store this time around.

    Pretty close to the same body size.
    Good news, thanks. I'm very happy with the size of my 5x and the Pixel XL seems manageable, but too much bigger and start thinking about the non-XL model.

    Surely.... Surely they won't make the same mistake again.

    Let's hope not. They do seem to have learned their lesson that they can't trust HTC to produce all the devices and they can't trust Samsung to be on time with all the displays, so now they have two different sets of factories and two different display makers. That addresses both of last year's issues, so hopefully it's enough.

    That's a Nexus, not a Pixel.

    Google's contact allows them to warranty the Nexus phones that they sold directly and leaves all others, sold by Not Google, to be handled by the OEM. In the case of the 6P that's Huawei.

    For Pixel devices, Google is the OEM so they can handle all devices, regardless of point of sale.

    Totally different relationships with very different implications for how Google is able to handle support.
    There's still some benefits to buying direct. Google will replace Verizon pixels but it won't be an advance replacement. You'll be without a phone while everything is shipped

    If you buy from Google you get an advance replacement?

    With Google's Device Protection Plan, which you can only purchase if the phone is purchased through them.

    Thanks - I guess I'll wait and see who offers what when the time comes - never had a phone issue with any of the phones I've had (knocking on wood)

    That's what they tell me. They will put a hold on your card and take it off when they get your old phone back. The only way for Verizon bought Pixels to get advanced replacement is through Verizon.

    The main problem with buying from anyone other than Google is the warrantee support. I might save a buck or two buying it from Verizon or Best Buy but I know I'll regret penny-pinching if I ever need to get it repaired or replaced. I'll just buy it from Google and get their extra-protection plan. It's was way cheaper when I got my N6P than paying the monthly cost at AT&T (I'm on Verizon now) or the up-front cost at Best Buy.

    Advanced replacement is new or refurb?
    Because Verizon has advance replacement but it's usually refurb
