I don't see too many reviewers with facial hair or not much at least. Just wanted to differentiate myself with others a little. Hope you guys like the video.

So, keeping the pixel for now as daily driver? S7 is a paper weight?
Yeah I kept flip flopping but after using the Pixel for a few days while working on the review I couldn't help but hang onto it. I'll miss the water resistance and Samsung Pay (though I do have the Gear S3 for that) but the speed difference and Android 7.1 is incredible.

Yeah I hear ya. I keep switching back and forth too. Each have different pros and cons it is a tough decision. See I have an s2 ( s3 is way too big for my small girly wrists) so while I have Samsung pay on it, it will only work on NFC terminals. How can you manage your Samsung rewards and stuff? I don't think the Samsung pay apps is compatible on the pixel

I got my husband the s3 and it's one stunning watch. Now they made it usable with iOS. Why would anyone with an iPhone buy an Apple watch?!

@Jtshurtleff : Excellent review! I would have never guessed that it was your first one. Watching the second video now.

Thank you so much! I did a ton of research. Hoping to get some notoriety I tweeted at JerryRigEverything and he not only watched and commented but gave me a thumbs up and tweeted me back! It was awesome as a start-up to get someone like him to check it out.

Good first review, for sure. I'll have to watch the second video now.

I have a Pixel Jr. on the way, and I'm hopeful it will pull me away from iOS.

Nice review! :)

I always like to see reviews by regular users, not just tech bloggers, since I feel that regular users provide better feedback about devices that I would also be a regular user of.
