    What's your favorite feature? What is the first thing you show another person about your phone?

    I'd gave to say the fast camera and the single lense portrait mode with using ML is awesome...

    You can't really say battery performance I guess... I'd go with AOD... I came to really like it on the G6 and V30.

    Though I think the visual core will ultimately be my choice. But we ain't seen what she can do yet.

    I'm digging so many features, it's hard for me to pick one.

    i guess the active edge, I use that all the time. But if you ask me again I might pick a different one.

    I'm still learning the simplest things. For example, I can ask Google to remind me to buy bread when I'm at Walmart. And then when I walk into Walmart I get a reminder on my phone

    Google Assistant. I went from a Motorola and " Hey Moto x" to an iPhone and wondered why Siri was so stupid to Google Assistant. I use Google Assistant several times a day.
    Portrait mode is definitely second!

    I also really like the Now Playing. It's such a simple thing, but the cool factor is really large.

    Get the "Now Playing History" app. It will complete your life.

    It has to have heard a song that's in its database. Remember, this is not going out onto the Internet to try to find out what the song is, it's all done with an onboard database.

    BTW, you can use assistant to find out what a song is like you would use Shazam or SoundHound...

    Definitely the camera, I keep getting amazed how this takes amazing pics at any light compared to my other phones. I started using even portrait selfie more because this thing takes some great portraits.

    The camera and just the overall smoothness. Even the Note 8 just didn't seem as polished and refined. You can't put a price on hardware/software optimization. Oh and that stormtrooper paint job is pretty cool too

    Maaan... This is a tough one for me. I love so much about the device...

    I want to say Active Edge is what I use the most and love because I use GA... However, this camera is damn HEAVENLY!! Then again, I'm really looking forward to Lens and Visual Core getting up to full speed!

    I CAN'T DECIDE!!!

    I don't know why you can't say battery life. With only a 2700mAh battery it's out performed phones I've had with 3900mAh batteries. I know they always say that this new chip will increase battery efficiency by 15% or whatever, but I never really saw it until now. I know a lot of it has to do with a smaller screen and a lower resolution, but it makes a difference! My original Pixel got better battery life than previous phones as well, but this took that performance and almost doubled it. It is the first thing I tell people about, and also the most often.

    But, if we're talking about features designed for the Pixel specifically, that's a hard one. Active Edge, which I never thought I'd use, is something I use frequently. The camera is obviously excellent, but portrait mode takes it to another level. AOD and Now Playing are extremely useful as well. The return of front facing speakers is definitely a boost over the original Pixel for me, as I was always covering the speaker when watching videos. Then there's better water resistance for peace of mind. Timely updates is of course there as well as it was on the original Pixel. But if I had to pick just one....sorry, I just can't.

    I think it's actually great that we're having a hard time deciding which features we like the best. To me that's a sign of a good purchase and a satisfied customer.

    But I thought the Pixel doesn't have any features?! Google's "problem" is that they included features that add to a user's experience without screaming 'look at me Ima the awesome!', so some just straight up forget about them, in particular people who don't have the phone. This was exactly what Sundar meant back last year when he was speaking at a conference. I'm a function over form kind of person, so I'm more than happy with that approach.

    As for the battery performance, I'll just leave this here:



    (Yes, it's crazy good)

    I had the OG Moto X and the 2014 Moto X up until now. I am loving the Pixel 2 (small version). The bezels are stupid but I got over it, everything else is better....but I miss the chop chop gesture for flashlight
