    Yeah, it's a good phone and I had one, but my S8 runs circles around it. Time for the price to drop. The Pixel 2 will be very similar. Bezels-R-Us.

    The price will drop when people are no longer willing to pay the higher price.

    It's called the "law of supply and demand" or, if you prefer, simple economics.

    Bezels have no correlation with price. Also, lol @ the S8 "running circles" around the Pixel.

    I will say that Google seemed to keep an artificially low supply of Pixels. That probably helped with the secondary market.

    I got an S8 for family's emergency backup. The wife used it for 2 weeks and HATED IT. She went right back to her pixel within minutes of it arriving. She hates technology and buttons. She won't even use the radio in my Accord

    We always joke about her being an old lady.

    I married one of those also. I had to finally pry the iPhone 4 from her hands. I was afraid she'd kill me in my sleep those first couple weeks without it.

    You could at least let her stay with Apple. The iPhone 7 should only be different in size anyway. Lol.

    I bought my Pixel (silver, 32gb, VZW) for $425 3 month ago.

    It's now $400. That's a little slow, but not too bad. The prices will crash in late Sept.

    Got a refurb 32GB XL for $450 this week. First phone that I have had in a long time that I feel like I will be happy with for at least a year. Maybe 2.

    It wasn't artificially low supply. The fact is that Google doesn't actually care how many pixels they sell. They just want the pixel to exist as a rival to further spur innovation and pressure android manufacturers to continue to push the limits. Google is a software company, manufacturing isn't their game.

    Lol. Just my luck. Still $100 more than I paid but brand new, with Warranty with a Daydream too. Good deal. But, glad I got the Pixel XL.

    As tempting as that deal is, I'd rather wait for the P2 and put the money towards that. Or, keep the Pixel I have, which is working just as well as it did when I got it.

    I got the Daydream with my first-day order of the Pixel XL (well, a month or so later, anyway). Played with it a few times and, frankly, I have better ways to waste my limited free time.

    Perhaps just not enough quality Daydream apps yet to make it worthwhile.

    As a father of a toddler, I completely agree!

    I picked up a used Pixel XL 32gb w/ charger, tgsp and an otterbox case for $380 on ebay at the end of June. I also picked up a Pixel 32gb w/ charger and case for $300 for my wife. She had a nextbit Robin before this but loves everything about her pixel.

    Anyone want to get rid of their Daydream?

    Funny, all of these people "whining" and complaining that the price of a used Pixel is too high. That only means that demand is high and the quality makes people want to keep it. Look at the price of iPhones.... they have ALWAYS been, and remain high. I've seen posts in various places of people selling their iPhone 4s for $150! Seriously? I have a Galaxy S3 in good condition that I can't get rid of for $50. I am glad that the Pixel is keeping its value.

    is it still low on supply?? i dont think so. most of low supply was due to component shortage. its not like they dont want to sell it at all

    That may well be. I'm not impressed by companies that have supply issues because their product is so "popular." I'm not a Samsung fan, but they generally don't have that issue, unlike Apple and Google.

    Right, the "popular" issue was only half the issue. They doubled their sales expectations in the first 6 weeks AND were having trouble getting extra components on time.
