The article doesn't mention an upgrade to the FPS. I thought I heard the 8 will be getting the faster ultrasonic type? I know the FPS has been a pain point for a lot of folks for the last couple of years and I know I often have to try twice to unlock my P6P.
Their presentation didn't mention the FPS at all, and I was disappointed about it. None of them have ever worked for me ... always have to use the PIN.

Yeah, I think it's the same fps as on the 7. Hopefully face unlock will work a little better? 9to5Google reported a few hours ago on a YT video that face unlock will now be secure enough to do app sign ins/financial transactions on the P8.

I forgot about the FPS. I hadn't been using my P7 pro much, but after some software updates, the FPS does seem to be improved. Hopefully, it's even better now on the P8

I think most of the people that were following leaks and information about Pixels didn't hear anything special today. From my side, there was no wow and I wanted go to sleep, but after some deep thinking there are some doubts that I have:

- I do not understand why do I have to pay 1099 EUR for Pixel 8 Pro when it costs 999$ in US,
- I am not sure if it is me but I think that most of the new video tricks are limited to 30 FPS only. I cannot find information about recording in "boosted mode" in 4K 60FPS. As an owner of Pixel 7 Pro, the cinematic video last year was also limited and I used it just to see how does it look like and then no more lol.
- my second phone is iPhone 13 mini and while checking trade-in on Google website I can get around 540 EUR for it and around 340 EUR for Pixel 7 Pro... This is ridiculous, Google!!!
- at the moment I see no reason to buy Pixel 8 (Pro). I will wait for first reviews to check how the cameras are.

Maybe around Blackfriday there will be better price and the phone itself will be updated as well. As ex-owner of Pixel Watch I would also recommend to go for Pixel Buds, unless someone needs a watch...
Don't forget, the Americans will have to add sales tax to that $1,000 price tag.

Pulled the pin on the obsidian pro. Free pixel watch 2 included. Now I just have to break it to the better half. Delivery Oct16 or 17th.
Just got an email. They moved it up to the 12th or 13th, weird.

Can't wait to get mine next Thursday. My 6 Pro has been a beast but I there are features I am missing like clear calling and face unblur. I am so looking forward to the enhanced cameras and video functions and full biometric face unlock. Plus I have coveted that beautiful blue colour since I saw it.

8 Pro in bay 256GB. Free watch in black WiFi. £1059 all in.

I was just curious if I did better ordering direct from Google vs. Best Buy and Google wins (at least for me, trading in a good condition 6 pro). The Google trade estimate was $400 vs $355 from BB and G lets you pick your watch color...BB just gives you the black one.

I always buy unlocked from the Google Store using Google Credit 0% interest. Sometimes the trade-in might be better at other places. Sometimes the Free stuff might be better but all in all I think I get the best deal from Google.
