No interest in the Google Pixel, not even if it was half the price. Perferfectly happy the Honor 5C, I have been using for two weeks. It only cost £149.99 and is perfect for my modest needs.
Perhaps the slump in the pound since UK voted to leave EU is a significant factor in setting the price point but it will need to be a-may-zing to sell well in UK at those sort of prices. Remains to be seen how well it can differentiate itself from cheaper phones (e.g. the aforementioned oneplus 3) and flagship (iPhone 7, Samsung S7 edge etc) but the Pixel needs to have some smart tricks up its sleeve...
Absolutely not. OnePlus have many examples of failing customer service and customer support. God forbid you have a hardware fault with one of their devices. From stories of them losing devices to having no record of even issuing an RMA to charging for jobs that should have been covered under warranty... it's an absolute nightmare.
I was a really big fan and avid supporter of OnePlus when the One came out. It was a great device at a great price, but unfortunately they haven't got the back-office support necessary to keep pace with customer demand.
I moved from a OnePlus One on Vodafone to a Nexus6P on GiffGaff and I've been extremely happy as a result.
I certainly don't miss all the "when are we getting the update to [current version of Android]? It's been promised for months".
Android 7. Day of release. Security updates every month. Sorted.
That being said, I'm supremely disappointed to see the Pixel and Pixel XL pricing in line with iPhone 7 of similar spec. The move from Nexus to Pixel branding was also an ideal opportunity for Google to include microSD storage and I was genuinely disappointed to find out that Carphone Warehouse's earlier leak misrepresented both handsets as offering it.
As the new handsets offer only a very slight upgrade from my Nexus 6P, there's nothing compelling me to spend way over the perceptible market value for such a device.
Ultimately I will probably get one, but gone are my plans to sell my 6P now in order to upgrade as soon as possible.
