Cheaper than buying directly from Google.

Few few screen issues with the majority being fixed. If you can put up with the off axis blue tint it looks a cracking phone.

Think it's the cheapest i've seen it! HOT
Heat, great find
This is a superb price for an excellent phone. Have had mine for weeks now. Is already on Android 8.1, the camera is absolutely stunning, battery life is excellent, it's blindingly fast and the blue tint is barely noticeable in day to day use.
Hmm the worst phone this year

I was supposed to receive mine from Google today but UKmail proved how rubbish we are. I will cancelled it and get it from CPW...
So £699 - £34 (Google Home Mini) - £10 CB = £655....

Really really tempted!!!!

Strange thing to say without backing it up. Why's that?

No 3.5mm port, not IP68 (I know it's IP67), no microSD slot, looks ugly, the price and better phone's for your money

Does backing up the phone fix the issues?

Do you mean 'Worst phone this year' or 'There's worse phones this year'. Either way an explanation would be beneficial.

For me the S8/+ is still the better buy even though this deal is hot, although I'd be lying if I said I wasn't jealous of 8.1.
Since when is £699 a deal for a phone?

Ordered, thanks OP
Now I need to sell my iPhone, iPhone battery case and all the lightning cables I have...don’t regret switching to Google, all my most used apps are made by google so looking forward to enjoying them in the google ecosystem(apple CarPlay was the biggest downside for me, Android Auto looks more polished, let’s see)
Any places that sell those original google cases

No 3.5mm port is great, they're a dead technology that people need to let go of. USB-C is far better, or even better, some top notch Bluetooth cans.

I'm not sure anyone has ever suffered because their handset was one ingress protection rating lower than another. I've used a few of these now and would certainly say this is a better handset than my Galaxy S8+ in every sense. The user experience is so much cleaner and the hardware feels much more solid.

It REALLY doesn't hurt to have both, my XZ Premium has a 3.5mm port and USB-C I have a choice of 3 ways of listening to music instead of 2.
And yes, a pure Android is nice and instant updates is brilliant but the versions of Android phone manufacturers make just makes the phone a bit more unique

Since the RRP is £100 more? Like it or not, the prices of flagships are on the rise. There's plenty of options if you'd rather spend less.
Hot. I'm waiting for christmas carphone warehouse deals on this phone to spread costs. As well rhinioshield crashguard and dbrand grip cases will be realase in january.
Does the handset lock to first sim inserted or is it fully unlocked

You can use Substratum to theme this phone and many other Android phones, without requiring root.

Better how? Give some details. Better camera than on this phone? Absolutely not. Better Android updates than this phone? Absolutely not. These are the important features which no phone does better in fact this phone is the best for those. So your statement that there's better depends on the functionality you require.

I bought this with such high hopes and returned a week later. At release is was just buggy. In my case it could not connect to the car Bluetooth. It was probably fixed by one of the patches but you couldn’t force the phone to download it and no one could give guarantees that it would actually come through in any reasonable time. Since connectivity in the car is somewhat essential, I had no choice but to return.

There were were a lot of reports of similar issues. Very poor from google as I had gone to the pix l rather than the iPhone only to have to go back on that
Great, it's £50 cheaper! My concern is... does CPWHouse offer refund if I opened the box and found some screen issue like my currently 2 XL? Since Google offers 15 days refund without asking anything.

I gave two examples where the competition can't be better and yet you say there's better phones that this. So define better or go look up a definition of the word better.

I didn't say that it did those things badly or anything, I said the things that I think that make it no so good is what I said

No you didn't. You said "the price and better phone's for your money". Exactly what you said. You used the word better. So how does anyone interpret that, so I want a phone with the best camera but there's better phones than this? Really tell me which one, I want a phone which gets updated before any other, which phone is better than this?
Ordered last night for store pick up,got a call this morning phone is ready to pick up..happy days and excellent from CPW..
So far setup was easy..looking forward to enjoying the phone, first impressions: phone is super smooth, really loud, camera awesome,no problem with the display..
Uploaded my receipt on CPW website and won a pair of JBL Bluetooth headphones
Ordered the standard Pixel 2 earlier, good deal with the Google Home Mini included.

Listen, I'm asking you why and you can't give a reasoned response then you have the gall to call me stupid. It's obviously not as it has the best camera and software updates. So how does that make it the worst and how are there better phones? You never said overall, you literally said worst phone this year and most people know that not to be true and now we find out that you can't give a reasoned reply and start being aggressive when questioned! I don't want to continue this debate with you. I'll let everyone else be the judge.

Online says if you buy sim free delivery of the speaker comes 14 days later, guessing this is due to returns period. I'm sure that will be fun to chase up when it doesn't.....

If you bought in store kinda feel they should have given you one on the spot? Worth giving them a ring.
