    If nothing else the nexus 5x and 6p will be sold on the super cheap soon. The pixels are looking badass so far though. The goggle home could be pretty sweet too I'm geeking out ready to spend money :dance:

    Ive been using allo lately too and that shit is pretty baller even though it's not even close to done. I predict it will be the one-for-all messaging app. Desktop SMS integrated? Yes please.

    Sneak peek...

    Latest Pixel leaks give comprehensive look at the 'phone by Google'
    The big Google event isn't until tomorrow, but Google's phones are here to be gawked at today. The latest leak of the company's Pixel and Pixel XL handsets comes via UK retailer Carphone Warehouse (and 9to5Google), with the phone-seller accidentally publishing a clutch of photos, informative slides, and specs. They show the same devices we've seen in previous leaks, with Google's "G" logo branding, as well as a new tagline: "Phone by Google." We saw the same line in another recent leak from Canadian operator Bell this weekend, though whether or not it's official branding remains to be seen.

    [​IMG]
    Previous rumorshave said the handsets will be manufactured by HTC.

    Pulled slides from Carphone Warehouse also showcased a number of Google software features, including free photo storage on Google Photos, and the Duo video chat app and Allo messaging app (complete with built-in Google Assistant). Also mentioned is a quick charge feature (15 minutes of charging for seven hours' battery life) and the return of Live Cases — customized phone cases that were introduced earlier this year for the Nexus 6, 5X, and 6P for $35 a pop. Let's just hope there are at least some new information left for Google to announce tomorrow.

    I am...my Nexus 5 got wet last week. Sigh....I'm trying to fix it. If that doesn't work I'll need to upgrade.

    I use hangouts, which works great for me, does video conferencing, desktop SMS/MMS etc. I don't get what Google's game is with Hangouts, Messenger, Allo and Duo which all, more or less tread the same ground.

    Just got a new phone a couple of months ago when my Nexus 6 screen shattered the first time I dropped it(had it since launch :mad: ), so won't be in the market for a phone until late 17, early 18. Curious if the Pixel/XL fixes the Nexus line's biggest problem: the cameras and Google camera app have been pants. Also will Pixel abandon wireless charging, which I consider essential since I have a couple of charging pads, and plugging and unplugging the charge cord all the time is eventually going to weaken the phone's connector.

    Nexus 5 = my all time favorite phone. I told google keep that form factor and just keep making the guts better. I'd buy it for life.
