Google Pixel review: Advanced simplicity

07 November 2016
HTC and Google have come full circle twice since the original HTC Dream, which released on T-Mobile as the T-Mobile G1. Then a few years later with the release of the Google Nexus One, yet another phone is made by HTC for Google. And now, with the Nexus lineup seemingly discontinued, the (HTC-made, as well) Google Pixel takes its rightful place as Google’s own flagship offering.

Non-removable battery is a huge deal breaker for me. Other than that, I would have bought this phone.

A device that proves the point that the device is smarter than it's users..
Make the most of it kiddies,the next gen of Google cash grabbers will be locked up solid,you will not be able to opt out of a anything,all your data etc will be used by alphabet to generate real data about real people..
If you think Apple is bad now,wait two years for what alphabet and device makers are going to roll out..

This is an appalling phone IMO.
Look at the frickin battery endurance. That's disappointing.
Also no wireless charging, no proper waterproofing a God awful design with bezels stretching from Tokyo to Timbuktu at an exorbitant price.

"Unfortunately, there is no theme chooser. Even though Android once did support it back in Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the decision to remove it is somewhat strange. But perhaps Google had its reasons to get rid of it."

This is one of the reasons why I've gone with HTC and Sony over stock Google. For me, stock uses way too many colors and cartoonish-looking elements without a native theme chooser to change them. Like the reviewer, I'm curious to know why the Pixel doesn't have theme capabilities out of the box.
