Everyones getting a special sneak preview of exactly how Googles new phone works, and its all thanks toone lucky customer.
The Google Pixel was shipped a week earlyto Australian RedditWooparse, who is now sharing all the details with us in one long thread.
When asked to give an initial summary of the phone, Mr. Wooparse told a commenter,
Coming from a N5 [Nexus 5]? Worth it, definitely. Didnt think the switch to USB C would be such a hassle though.
Do I think it could/should have been better for the overall cost? Yes, I think so. The metal body and glass is amazing build wise but the buttons still have that loose wobble. The upper and lower bezel are ~15mm in size. No wireless charging. Single speaker.
All things that arent the end of the world by any means but its hard to say hey, now heres a phone thats a little different.
That was just a general overview.Throughout the thread, Mr. Wooparse continued to answer a whole bunch of questions everything from the feel of the phone and the battery life to the packaging of the Pixel.
But of course, everyone knows the camera is the flashiest feature of a phone (no pun intended), and it looks like the Pixel really succeeded in this area.
Mr. Wooparses pictures look really good, even when theyre taken without the best of lighting.
