    Awesome. Battery life is better than ever, still just as fast as when I opened the box. Best Android phone I've ever owned.

    Day one pixel user here. My pixel has been nothing short of exactly what I expected: rock solid performance and risk/worry free user experience with stock Android. Updates on the day they are released (Verizon) and 100% stability in day to day use.

    I've had a case on this black standard pixel for the entire time. I have two cases, both spigen, one clear and one solid black. I switch between the two regularily. Recently put a dbrand skin on it and it looks wonderful. Very pleased. I basically have zero wear and tear on my phone due to case use and physically it is in mint condition. Software wise, well, let's just say I handled an s8 in stores multiple times and wouldn't trade two pixels for a Samsung. Out of 6, hands down a runaway winner for best phone I've owned.

    I bought the pixel about 2 months ago.
    Performance is as good as day one.
    Battery is decent. The camera is maybe the sweetest part of it. Couldn't be happier

    Mine has been working near flawlessly. I still think it's the best phone to date.

    Got mine on day 2.

    Looks like it did when I got it.

    And more importantly I RUNS EXACTLY LIKE THE DAY I GOT IT.

    This is the first smart phone I have ever had that did not start to get lag after a month or two. I have only rebooted a few times, and that was only because I thought it was time.

    Let's see all of those S8 people say that after 6 or 7 months...

    Still a great phone but I kind of agree with another thread saying 2016 phones look a bit old now when compared to this new generation of S8-like.

    My Pixel XL arrived the night before Verizon launched. Always cased so it's still in perfect condition. I have really enjoyed this phone. Prior to buying Pixel I had owned four Galaxy Notes, 2, 3, 5, & 7.
    I enjoy larger screens so I hope Pixel 2 screen will grow a bit. Perhaps 6"

    I'm very happy with it this far. Battery life is excellent, everything is fast and smooth, camera is great, and the display is amazing. The speaker is a bit lackluster but I can deal with that. So far I haven't wanted to try any other phone

    I have to say Pixel is the smoothest Android phone I've owned. I thought Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were smooth until I tried a Pixel. Both S7's are great phones but they just aren't as smooth as a Pixel. My Pixel has never stuttered, frozen, or glitched since I bought it. Great phone.

    Best phone I've ever owned.

    Phone is still extremely fast, as fast as the first day I got it, battery life still great and camera still excellent.

    I used to be the type of person that would go through multiple phones a year, but this is the first time I'll be keeping one phone for a whole year and only plan on upgrading to the Pixel 2 this year. I'm that happy with it.

    I've used the LG G6 and Galaxy S8+ and neither of them impressed me much. The user experience on the Pixel is just too far ahead for me to consider anything else.

    Had my XL since launch day, replacing my Note 7. I loved it then, and love it now. It has been what I expected and more. The timely updates from Google while using Verizon have been as promised, in fact, I am on a preview of O.

    In addition to timely updates, the fluidity and camera stand out to me.

    I don't feel any pull to new phones this first half of the year. We will see what Q3 brings, but I can see being very happy with this phone well into 18.

    I've also been one to switch phones often during the year. Always trying to find the best. I thought I found it in my S7 but it then started to stutter and freeze. I reluctantly went back to my iphone 7. Then came the Pixel. Has never stuttered, frozen, or glitched in any way. I think the Pixel may finally be the phone to get me 100% off IOS. I haven't found anything the iphone 7 can do that the Pixel can't do. Except imessage and I usually have that turned off due to switching from Android to IOS. Apple may finally be on its last leg in my life. I just think I prefer Android and definitely prefer Pixel.

    That is exactly where I'm at. Go back and forth with both because iOS is usually smoother and the apps are usually more efficient. That being said I like Android as a whole a lot more and just want to stick with it.
    I told myself to watch wwdc and see what they do with iOS 11 and decide. iOS 11 didn't anything I was hoping for and Android O looks great. So just sold my 7 plus. Have a pixel XL coming in this Friday from swappa and I'm getting away from crapple. Well I might get a MacBook pro lol. But I don't like all the handoff crap anyways so I don't need an iPhone with it.
    Here's to hoping the pixel 2 steps up the hardware game because the software is 👌🏼

    Make sure you get some warranty with that phone. I hear the warranty on the pixels don't transfer like they do on iPhones. Unless someone has heard differently?

    Hmm that is no bueno. I've never had to deal with warranty for Android because I've never kept a device long enough lol. I'll only need this to last until fall or so for the next pixel or note though. Thanks for the heads up though

    I just switched back to my Pixel XL, could not take the lag or the tallness of the S8+ anymore. I will only be upgrading to new Pixels every year from now on.
