• Buying a Pixel 2 today? You might want to skip Google's pop-up stores

    1 month ago - By SlashGear

    Today is a day the Google faithful have been waiting a couple of weeks for. The Pixel 2 officially goes on sale across the US today, though unfortunately, your options are limited if you're looking to buy, thanks to an exclusivity deal the big G has struck with Verizon. At least Google's got those pop-up stores in Manhattan and Los...

    The Pixel 2 is $30 more expensive at Google's own stores

    1 month ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    I'm starting to think that Google really doesn't understand how to sell a phone. Not only does the new Pixel XL come with a laundry list of problems that shouldn't be in a cheap Chinese knockoff, let alone a $850, but Google's charging extra if you want to buy the phone at Google's own retail stores.
    The Verge visited Google's pop-up store in NYC, and found that the phones had all been marked up by $30. That's right: Go to Google, rather than Best Buy, and Google itself will charge you $30 for the privilege of buying its brand-new phone. That's not how this works. That's not how any of...

    The Pixel 2 costs more at Google's own pop-up stores

    1 month ago - By The Verge

    I spent a good amount of time at Google's New York City pop-up shop this morning, and while the product demo areas were great - and felt true to what you'd imagine a Google retail store to be - the actual buying process was anything but.
    Most of the staffers spread around the Flatiron location definitely seem to be Google employees, as they're all fairly knowledgeable about the Pixel 2, Home speakers, Pixel Buds, and other new products on display. But when it comes time to buy a phone, you're handed off to people working on behalf of an authorized Verizon reseller. Specifically, it's this...

  • Google Pixel Buds Available for Pre-Order at Verizon

    1 month ago - By Android Headlines

    Google's first pair of headphones, the Pixel Buds, were announced earlier this month along with the Pixel 2 , Pixel 2 XL and a few other products from the search giant, and now they are available for pre-order at Verizon. Now, it does appear that Verizon has these backordered right now, so you likely won't be getting them in the next few days, but luckily, Verizon is allowing you to go ahead and still make your order and it'll ship once it's available.
    The Google Pixel Buds are available for $159, which is about the price of most wireless earbuds these days, although they do venture into...

  • Google's new cases for its Pixel 2 phone put Apple's iPhone cases to shame

    Google's new cases for its Pixel 2 phone put Apple's iPhone cases to shame

    1 month ago - By Business Insider

    The Google Pixel 2 has a lot of great features. It's waterproof, the camera is fantastic, and it runs a simple, easy-to-use version of Android.
    But one of the things I like most about the Pixel 2 has nothing to do with the phone itself, but rather with the new phone cases.
    Of course, case options are not a good enough reason to buy a phone. There are hundreds of thousands of companies that make cases, and chances are you can find something you like from a third party.
    Still, there's something comforting about buying a case from the company that made your smartphone. Apple's cases are great...

  • Google Pixel 2 Review: Performance

    1 month ago - By Liliputing

    Most high-end smartphones shipping in 2017 have Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processors and at least 4GB of RAM. So it's not surprising that Google's new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones follow suit. The phones score very well on benchmarks and feel pretty zippy when performing most tasks. But benchmarks only tell part of the...
