    Personally hate the carriers and never buy anything from them, but this is horrible news for Google since 99% of the people only buy from carriers in the US. Supposedly Verizon is killing their deal with Google to sell Pixel phones.

    https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/0...4a-or-pixel-5/

    Update::

    Verizon tells @CNET this morning that it isn’t getting rid of Pixel. “It’s not true. We continue to work with Google and look forward to the new portfolio of devices.”

    Yep it's like getting kicked out, that's shameful for Google given the size of them compared to OnePlus.

    I do like my pixel phones and unfortunately this is very bad news in terms of Google continuing making phones couple of years down the line.

    I always prefer to buy unlocked whenever possible. If Google goes ahead with the pixel 5's since they've probably already started on them and Verizon doesn't get on board then I don't see a problem as long as they have Verizon system requirements in the phone, just buy unlocked. If I could get a pixel 5 I'd be happy for 2 or 3 years anyway.

    Nobody wants them because they do a terrible job at marketing. Verizon doesn't push them at all

    I thought the Pixel line was a decent seller. Guess I was wrong.

    I heard this too. The problem is that Google underwhelms at the same price point Samsung is overwhelming. This causes an issue with value for money. Google needs to price like OnePlus and take the hit, because they end up dropping the prices for Black Friday and Christmas anyway.

    Yeah I was just thinking that this morning! That would be a huge slap in the face to Google! Hello Verizon, I will buy an unlocked pixel phone and connect it to your network. Sincerely Eric! what, Verizon thinks that a OnePlus 8 phone will sell more so than a Pixel phone will? Yeah right!

    You're right. Samsung packs overly too many features in their phones, and Google puts in the status normal for phones. yet their prices don't reflect that this is why I hate flagship prices for phones in general!

    The only phones that Verizon pushes to sell is Galaxy phones and iPhones. That's also the frustrating part about it. I'm sure that's what they're told to push anyways.

    Well that's not good news, could this be a trend that leads to the Denise of the pixel? Hope not.

    I mean what's the stop anyone from buying unlocked phone from Google, and then just connecting it to Verizon network. That would actually get more money/business to Google anyways.

    I guess if true I will have a collectors item ...

    Go figure I always buy unlocked phones but jumped on Verizon version 4 XL ...start by handing out more deals and they might sell ...but I'm not too unhappy seeing OnePlus is coming to VZW..

    yeah, I'm just curious as to why Verizon would sell the OnePlus phone, not the Pixel phones... Let's just see what the future holds in store. But yes, what's stopping anyone from buying an unlocked pixel and connecting into Verizon network?

    Why would any carrier sell these? They are middle of the road phones with baffling stupid design dcsions (here's looking at you pitiful battery size and no ultra wide sensor).

    Google has been making bone headed decisions since they left nexus behind. Even I refused to buy the 4XL until it was on sale, as it was not worth the full price.

    I know when I was on TMobile I noticed plenty of interest on OnePlus phone ...I would like to see how they performed in sales ...end of the day you can get unlocked ...but it always hurts when you don't sell carrier stores...I'm also hearing they might just go with 4a type phones going forward ..might not be a bad idea ...bc plenty of us waited out for deals on the latest

    Well well well, that is what putting a 64gb base storage, charging $900, and offering insulting trade in deals does to you LOL

    if Google doesn't stop crappy stuff like that, pixels will be no more in the near future.

    Would serve them right as well.

    You know, I used to love the Nexus phones. The nexus 5 and 5X/6P was pinnacle for me. They were not high end specs, but middle specced, and priced to match. They got updated, and I loved them.

    The Pixel came out, it was priced well. All of these phones, I bought, loved them. The Pixel 2 dropped, I paused. The price was high, but I got it anyway.

    The Pixel 3XL was the ugliest piece of trash I had ever seen. I skipped it. The Pixel 4 dropped with a smaller batterry with a hungry screen, that cvost as much as a Galaxy?? Nope. I sat on the 2XL until the price dropped.

    My wife and I have a comboned 9 PGoogle phones at that point, and we wouldn't buy until the price came down. Why would nayone buy a Pixel at full price? The battery is a joke, the updates got screwed up, and lack of ultra wide camera is mind boggling. That price?????? What?

    Google had better get it's crap together. This looking bad.

    yeah I hear you. I mean as far as the flagship phone prices from every manufacturer, I've never agreed with it even with the higher chipsets and Rama man's things like that. As far as not selling and carry stores, yeah it's going to sting if the rumors are definitely true. There's no question about it. And I just like everyone else here and the die-hard Google lover. That being said, I've never tried one plus phone. My thinking is why I get a OnePlus phone when you can get a pixel phone... But yes, we'll have to see what happens in the near future!

    I think that it all may be an overreaction. They weren't selling Pixel phones through all carriers until recently. There was a time when Nexus phones couldn't be bought in carrier stores at all and people were still buying them. I'm also not convinced that sales are bad because the Pixel devices are under spec'd. The overall experience of the Pixel exceeds most flagships in my opinion. I believe people have brand loyalty. We have iPhone users who aren't going to entertain anything else. And then we have those who prefer Android that will always choose Samsung no matter what. Then you have the budget people who will flock to the cheaper handsets like Motorola.
