I think they did the chin like that b/c you need all that real estate for front facing speakers. Not gonna lie, going from a phone that has them to one that doesn't will be a tough thing to do. They are literally perfect.

If the Pixel goes to edge-to-edge, I'm heavily going to consider it. Everything is just rumors now so I'll patiently wait b/c I still love this 6P so I'm in no hurry to upgrade. Thing is still flawless after 1.5 years.


I thought they did away with the front speaking speakers after the 6P? Mine has been out of commission for over a year (RIP) but I loved the device for the most part.

First I think the back of the Pixel is actually really nice



I could never get over this top half. The 6P's looked so much better to me if a phone is going to go asymmetrical. To each their own obviously. I've heard that about the G6 too.

OnePlus 5 has underwhelmed so far. Haven't really heard of any phones taking the world by storm this year other than the S8. I would never go back to Samsung though. OnePlus or Pixel (with a skin or case) for me.

Anyone hear about the RED phone yet?

Honestly I'm just kind of stoked a camera company is putting out a phone

Yeah, it is the last one I believe and that is due to the large bezels you get as a result. I think I'll like edge to edge display but the front facing speakers are just so clutch. I do love this phone though. Still 1.5 years strong w/ it and I can see myself lasting another 1.5 if needed. I see why everyone wanted Nexus when it was a thing.

Samsung Galaxy S8 64gb Unlocked

Gear VR with Controller (2017 edition)

Wireless Charger with stand

$624


Seems like a good deal....I wish I didn't dislike my S7 Edge so much, my fear of having the same issues with the S8 is making me hesitant.

Bought the package above for $624

Purchased separately all that goes for around $885

Figure I can easily flip the bundle for $775-800


Profit goes to my next phone....I checked how much my 1 month old S7 Edge in mint condition would be worth trade in value and it's laughably bad ($186) Laughing

FWIW, every single person I know who has the S8 says it's the best phone they've ever had. A lot of them were iPhone holders previously as well. Hope it works out for you.

Thinking about it, it's kinda weird how many people I know w/ this device. Almost none of them were Sammy owners prior. Maybe their marketing team did something to get this to appeal to people especially after the fiasco which was the Note 7. I was worried Sammy would tank but it seems they've come back stronger than ever.

The new Pixel XL?

It has a 6" bezeless screen, 'squeezable' sides... and possibly no headphone jack. Not bad looking. I don't know about these squeezable sides but from first impressions I rather not have that. I don't like any give with my electronics, makes them feel cheaply made.

No headphone jack just kills it for me.

Also don't like how the stock google phones haven't had microSD slots.

I'm guessing it's gonna be more for grip purposes. Could be really cool if it's some grip surface like a nice case.

Dood, did you just complain about a Samsung phone, then said you didn't know about the mass complaints when you bought it, and now bought another one?

All I gotta say is look at this thread and the people who own stock Android devices. I don't hear many complaints, and we complain about everything.

This is what I was gathering also from the description. No headphone jack and no dual rear cameras = I won't buy it.

I said I heard about the complaints but I figured it was something that I myself (not as picky as some techies and not a power user) wouldn't be too put off by well taking into account the cheap price of the phone at the time.


The only reason I bought the bundle was to flip it and I already sold it for $790 on craigslist.

I get it in the mail from Amazon tomorrow and am meeting the guy friday.

Easiest $140 I ever made Laughing



I will admit though I am finding I am becoming one of those very nitpicky users since being the owner of nearly stock android phones for the past 4 years (OPO and Moto X Pure).

The camera and screens on the Samsung are obviously fantastic, however I'd much rather have a slightly lesser screen and an average camera if it comes with seamless functionality and minimal bloat.

Take for example the S7 Edge and S8 screen...looks amazing...but neither works with a good screen protector/case combination.

My S7 Edge looks fantastic, I just wish it worked as good as it looked.
