    Bring on the reviews

    I wonder who The Verge tapped for their review?

    My guess is Lauren and second guess is Dieter.

    This might actually be for the V20, but I hope I'm wrong.

    I'm pretty certain his "ok Google" mention was a hint it was for the Pixel. Sometime tweeted to him jokingly that it made their phone go off and he replied that they should expect it to a few times during the new video.

    So far reviews look good. The 2 area that I care the most are camera and battery life, and they both look good from the review. Google assistance seems to be great also. I am glad I went with pre ordering the pixel xl instead of keeping my Nexus 6P.

    I still don't know if I want it. The camera isn't quite as good as the Samsungs per several reviews and the battery is average, but when they show their screen on times they're always low with no explanation of how long the phone went between charges. One reviewer said the video image quality isn't as good as the iPhone 7. Several reviews complained about the price for the hardware you're getting with one review saying you can do better with other phones for the price. Reviews were supposed to clear this up for me and instead they only muddied the waters.

    I am still on the fence about this phone, worried it will have bluetooth issues like the 6P. Reviews are still not giving a clear indication of battery life

    Sounds like it might not be for you then.

    That is kind of what most reviews do for me as well. Though you do have the return window to factor in. Aside from going to Verizon you cannot get the phone right now from what I have seen. So by then there will be many more reviews & comparisons.

    The Verge review was really impressed with the battery life saying it was better than iP7 & nexus 6p.

    Very very happy to see all the glowing reviews of the phone. Honestly, only the Note 7 was reviewed as well as I am seeing here today (other than iPhone reviews, of course - no comment).

    The Verge: Home Run
    "This is Google's first phone, and for a first effort it is remarkably good. By almost every metric I can think of — speed, power, camera, smart assistant, you name it — it matches or exceeds the best phones available on the market today. "

    Mossberg: Google's first phone is first rate
    "If you’re an Android fan, willing to buy a premium phone, the Pixel is your answer. To repeat: it’s simply the best Android phone I’ve tested."


    A/C review:
    "The Google Pixel XL is my new daily driver. As for the smaller Pixel, I know it's going to take a lot to tear Daniel Bader away from this compact Android powerhouse. (Ed: True.) Both are excellent smartphones which we can wholeheartedly recommend

    Engadget
    "Everyone else making Android phones should be a little worried"



    Most of the rest have the same theme. Really good camera, really good software. Fast, fast , fast. We'll see on battery life (most seem OK to good).

    I am excited now!

    That's a good review, but the camera review made no sense. It's the fastest smartphone camera even though it is only faster than a Samsung in burst mode and slower than a Samsung in auto focus? It's a better photographers camera than the LG V20 which has more extensive manual controls? It's the best smartphone camera even though it has wonky autofocus and doesn't excel in low light? Those comments don't really make sense.

    I feel like Google gave OEMs enough opportunity to do it...and none have really done it right. Google is done with reference devices and is a real OEM now.

    "It’s a fine phone, sure, but there are plenty of devices that offer similar performance and, in some cases, more features, for the same price or less.

    You want an Android phone? Buy a Galaxy S7 Edge. You want an Android phone that doesn’t break the bank? Buy a OnePlus 3. You want an Android Phone with Google Assistant? Buy a Nexus 6P and hack it on. Want something unique? Buy a Moto Z. You want an expensive Android phone with 24/7 support, unlimited Google Photo backup and the chance at getting the latest software first? Then get the Pixel. I suggest waiting to see what Google’s grander plan for the Pixel is before diving in, however. With the glaring hole left by the Galaxy Note 7 in my arsenal, I’ll personally be switching over to the Moto Z."

    Consensus seems to be best camera, best battery life, great build quality and we already know best software and best security, etc. Still waiting to see the display analysis. And also waiting for noon tomorrow so I can talk about mine.

    LOL at someone switching to Moto after saying "I suggest waiting to see what Google's grander plan for the Pixel is before diving in".

    That's hilarious. Moto has been shuffled around and changed plans so often in the past two years that I'm not sure I believe that they actually have a plan. I do hope they stick with the Mods though, but only because they already promised to and I don't want people to get hosed.

    You're trying to find reasons to not like the Pixel, and that's fine. Maybe just own up to that and skip it. Stick with the S7/Edge until the S8 is a real thing that you can buy. That might sound mean, but it's literally my honest advice to you (I'm also someone that always wants the newest thing out).

    There is no consensus on the camera. In the reviews I've seen, two reviews said it was the best smartphone camera, three said it wasn't as good as the Samsungs. It doesn't offer the best battery life either - just average - along the lines of an S7 Edge.
