Why was pixel team in such a hurry?

I saw this phone and used it in a shop last weekend. How this is priced at £599, I don't know. The display is underwhelming, the phone lacked speed for it's price point, the build quality is cheap. It seems like Google are thinking, "we are not to fussed about our phones anymore, we'll just build cheap things and if anyone wants to buy them, good luck to them".

They should've let Moto make those phones for them, but they sold it *facepalm*. Modular phones from Google may have sold well, all the mods they could've made. R.I.P Motorola (the US company)

"You can buy just about any smartphones nowadays (from 500EUR up) and you will not get a bad camera. Some even with very good cameras"

Oneplus 8T : "Hold my beer"

This Pixel 5 with mid-range specs, some outdated features, average design and build, and now these structural issues make the iPhone 12 mini appear as a value proposition, although $699 is no small amount, but at least for that price, the iPhone has everything top-notch, (no pun intended)

Considering the best USP for this excuse of a launch was "it's the smallest Android to be anything like a flagship" I'm guessing this news just sold a few iPhone 12 minis.

Pixels are indeed made by the dreaded htc designers.
That's why not a single pixel phone to date looked good or felt good.
htc is dead for a good reason.
