    We're starting an idea suggested by @sfoLAX. A simple thread that lists everyone's pros and cons about a specific device for the purpose of a potential buyer who wants a simplified look at current owner's opinions of it.

    Please do the following:
    1. Keep posts to a listing of pros and cons.
    2. You may list as many of either as you like.
    3. If you would like, you may add an overall purchase suggestion.

    Example:
    Pros:
    -Good battery life
    -Sleek design
    -Beautiful screen

    Cons:
    -Physical size too big

    Overall: I would recommend buying this device.

    Pros
    - great camera
    - pure Android experience
    - fast security updates
    - fingerprint reader
    - compatible with Google Fi
    - headphone jack

    Cons
    - expensive
    - rarely in stock (128GB model)
    - no expandable storage
    - not waterproof
    - no optical image stabilization
    - no wireless charging
    - large bezels

    Overall: best choice if you want a secure Android experience.

    Keep in mind that Google may come out with a significantly improved model this year.

    Pros
    - Strong radios for WiFi and cellular
    - Excellent for one handed usage (regular size Pixel)

    Cons
    - Can't silence ringer/notifications without having the phone vibrate instead or a Do Not Disturb Mode
    - Speaker is average

    Overall: I would recommend if you are seeking the best Android phone possible that is in a small package (regular Pixel).

    Pros:
    -Speed. Fastest phone I've ever used. Period.
    -Purest form of Android.
    -Excellent and super fast camera
    -Roomy (128GB model)

    Cons:
    -Camera May Be Somewhat Overrated.
    -Not enough "features" to warrant the high price.
    -Are the early Bluetooth problems really fixed?

    I go between this and a Moto Z Force Droid. If you want the fastest, purest Android experience, look no further than the Pixel. If you need a little more "bells and whistles", look for other "pure" or close to pure Android phones like what Moto overs.

    Wanted to add more cons to the Google Pixel XL. It doesn't tell you how many unread or new messages you have for each app. I had to buy another app to do this! Also, deleting multiple e-mail messages is way more complicated than it should be for a smartphone. You basically have to "press" on the body of the email to create a "check mark" on the left side and then delete several messages at one time. I miss pressing a home screen button at the bottom of the phone to activate the screen. All these features I would rather have than an awesome camera. SO disappointed in this phone!

    Re: email, wouldn't that be the case with all Android phones? Are you referring to the Gmail app?
