    Do you have wifi?
    Slow one.
    5 down, 1 up.

    If things go 5G
    Don't that mean my model and router need to be replaced

    No....your WiFi modem and router are separate from your cell service.

    I am the opposite . I tried Samsung once that was enough for me.
    While I can see that perspective, it depends on when "once" was. Back in 2014/15, the software was not great. I moved to the Pixels, but the Samsung software now is great IMO.

    I have the Pixel 2XL and the Note 9 and I prefer the Note software to be honest (on Pie now). YMMV of course. I'm just saying Samsung has been steadily and consistently improving their software over the years. The Pixel OS's seem more glitchy by comparison nowadays as well. In any case, YMMV of course.

    Google seems like they are out to lunch on designing a great phone.
    And like they don't really care.
    Don't understand what is up with them.

    OMG!!!! I go mad when I have 12 down. I couldn't cope with 5 down. Does the internet even work properly at that speed? I can't believe America is the number 1 country in the world and the internet is broken....

    I pay £25.50 a month for up to 70 down and 20 up. I get unlimited data for that price as well. That is home broadband.

    For mobile data I get LTE around 40-50 down unlimited data, unlimited calls and texts and I can use my allowances in 70 countries for free. I pay £20 a month.

    It is so expensive to live in America compared to the UK.

    If I wanted to pay a lot more money.
    And they will hang me with a land line, weather I want it or not
    I can get 25 down
    Lucky they don't own the rights
    Where I live,or it would be 100.00 for 5 down and 1 up with a land line.
    But FCC let's companies abuse us.
    We pay a franchise fee so competition can't come out in the country.

    Remind me again why the Pixel phones are not halo devices line the Pixel book. I keep struggling with why it seems like they build a phone that is slightly on par or below other flagship phones.
    I like to keep in mind that Google's core business is data. IMO Their devices must excel in only one area, and that's data collection. Building a flagship device would be great for the consumer if sold at an attainable price, but if a lower tier device continues to serve Google's purposes then why go down the road of competing with the other brands?

    I have a Pixel 2XL and love my phone. I've had Samsung in the past and it was okay. I like having a stock android. Samsung has too much bloatware for me that you can't uninstall. I don't really care about specs of the phones. I care about which one has the best camera on it. And right now the pixel phone line has the best camera. I will post pictures online and people are stunned to find out it's my cell phone, and not my DSLR. My husband has a Galaxy S9+ with work. I tried taking pictures with it, and they paled in comparison to my pixel. I love the fact that the day after Android Pie was released, my pixel was updated. When I had Samsung and LG. I would get it a year later when the next Android OS was released. I will stick with my Pixel line don't care if it's not the most feature rich phone. I love it anyway.
