This is the phone I'll probably get in a year's time when it's £300 cheaper. More than happy to stay a generation behind and keep the cost of a new phone to £400-£500 where is should be

Very disappointing, what happened to Google manufacturing a phone for the masses - RIP Nexus 😖

I can't believe that Google's website for these things lists 64gb / 128gb 'memory'.

I thought it was only amateurs that made this mistake.

400-500 is your affordability, someone's affordability is 100 and others …400-500 is your affordability, someone's affordability is 100 and others 1000

Affordability is one thing, value for money is quite another, the difference between a £400 smart phone and a £1000 smartphone isn't in my opinion remotely good value for money. Google said it themselves in today's presentation. Technology advancement has slowed down, diferences between phones year to year is marginal yet price drop after a year is vast.

Pixel 2 XL or Note 8?

Note 8 no doubt. It's a beast.

Note 8 is stunning.

But the time to buy that was probably a few weeks ago when there were contract offers with a free Dex that were cheaper than the equivalent S8/S8+ deals.

Shame they aren’t doing interest free finance like they are in the USA. Looks like a great phone. Not sure about the home mini

I'll be buying sim free, got a sim only contract. Pixel XL 2 has dual front facing speakers, better battery life, better camera/video, cheaper. Note 8 has that bigger better screen, s pen. This is a hard decision.

Welcome to 2015

Got Pixel xl for 399.99 yesterday.
Will put extra money on holidays, not eating beans on toast or a house deposit.
No need to pay for being able to tell your mates you got pixel 2, and hardly use half the features lol

Some people like paying extra for better stuff. I have young kids and travel with work. I want the best camera I can. I want a big emerisive screen

If you are gonna buy older tech to save money why not go 2nd hand ?

Ah.

The Note 8 was the same price as Sim free with an unlimited sim for calls and texts (only 2gb data mind) plus the free Dex.

That's gone now mind. Forget I mentioned it!

ROM - read only memory

In a way yes, but it's not the terminology in general use.

When describing the specs of a phone, would it be right to say it has 4gb memory AND 64gb memory?

The acceptable term is storage, and Google should have that right on their site.

To be fair its a stock android phone, so not exactly any features to show off outside the hardware.

because a phone, a car etc. are designed to last the exact time it's in warranty

It's got 64 or 128gb of memory that can't be written to, only read?

Cheap enough compared to other recent flagships

The Home Mini is an odd one.

As far as I can tell you can't pair it to a Bluetooth speaker and it doesn't have an aux out.

Meh.

pre ordered the pixel 2. sick of my samsung s7- rubbish battery and touchwiz bloat

Quite misleading image for the post. That's Pixel 2 XL. Pixel 2 looks different.32176279-frZZQ.jpg

Looks like an amazing phone, shame I just got the iPhone 8 to be on the same ecosystem as my family.

It's not read only as you can write to it! It's flash memory.

Never mind.

I will miss the headphone socket. The official USB-C Digital to 3.5 mm headphone adapter costs £20 from Google.

I need a new phone (not sure about keeping my Force X for much outside of the JL warranty) but I just can't tie together my love of the bargain and a £700 phone... I want it, but I don't think I can... this makes me sad

RAM I would call it. Random Access Memory. Either way we all know what’s meant by it.

I am tempted to make the switch from iPhone 7+. Can’t decide between this 2 XL version or Samsung 8+. I like the fact this is a clean install with guaranteed updates. When are Samsung likely to give up updating the s8?

Correct, I was referring to Storage as flash memory, but you are correct in memory is RAM.

What is it then?

Carphone Warehouse have the same offer but, delivery lead times are shorter for the 2XL. I've ordered a 64GB Black & White 2XL from the Google Store and delivery is stated as 21st December. I ordered another from Carephone Warehouse and delivery is stated as by November 20th (November 15th for the black one). £10 cashback through TCB for the latter too.

What happen to GOOGLE' Hight specs and Low Price principles?

The quick end of updates is grossly exaggerated to be honest. you normally get long enough updates till the phone is outdated 3 years ish.

Apple on the other hand keep rolling updates out which slowly grinds the phone to a halt after a few years.

In my experience Google support longer than Samsung
