It's "a breath of fresh air and a cool spring breeze".

I've had over 35 mobile devices since 2010 and only one has broken and it was broken by someone else, not myself. IMO it seems a little pointless to use a case when the companies work so hard to make the phones look attractive. Some of the phones are super ugly, but that's a deal breaker for me personally. Just don't drop the phone.

      I like this color way more than the blue personally. It's also a more historic color for Google.

          Anonymous, 26 Jan 2024The phone will run hot but in mint, it'll look coolStop being fresh, lol.

            It does not looks bad but they would do better if they makes real phones not china made nin ja turtles with some eye strap over camera.
            Never saw horrible design maybe apart Xelibri lines from siemens.

              Can we get bold or boring colors instead of years of pastel?

              I want a blood red phone, or a brushed steel phone, or a blacked out phone with no accent colors in the UI.

              If it's an MX-5 Special Edition color, I'd probably be okay with that as my phone color. I don't recall ever seeing a Mint-colored Miata... 🤢🤢

Yes the phone will get scratches and dents everywhere gradually, as it's impossible not to drop it now and then, but I don't care. I prefer to enjoy it than think of its resale value

The phone was designed a certain way aesthetically and I like that. no need to cover it up or ruin the design as intended.

                    Only 128GB in Europe 🤔

                        A worker puked in the paint for the white pixel and nobody noticed it.he got promoted.

                          And don't say there are clear cases...they would still diminish from the color.

                                "So, you can purchase a Google Pixel 8 or Pixel 8 Pro in the new color called Mint, exclusively from the Google online store and Google Fi in the US."

                                Kills almost all sales to be honest. 30000 sold at most. If it was given to carriers then a lot more would be sold to be honest.

                                "If you get a Pixel 8 or Pixel 8 Pro in Mint by February 3 at 11:59 pm PT, Google will throw in a free case with a matching color."

                                This is nice; most US companies don't throw in free cases. Just your handset and the cable. Being honest, just include the brick itself. If someone orders it online, it will have to be collected from the shelves, packaged, shipped from warehouse to warehouse (most cars and trucks on the road are GAS powered) and then delivered to your home. It does cut down on materials for each box but still.

                                    RIP dual tone pixels

                                      Mehhh it's just a color but 100% the same phone and brands make a big deal out of it. Jeez...

                                        it's a breath of fresh air and a cool spring breeze. It's serene, yet not boring

                                        does anyone faints in admiration at such bullshit?
