    Google is trying force everyone to Google cloud storage, eliminating the unlimited backup of photos and maxing out at 128G= FAIL.
    Sony Xperia 1 ii offer 265GB on board, SD expansion support up to 1TB, & 8 GB Ram. ontop of all that Xperia is almost stock android.

    You said you've never seen letters "burned into the screen. My iPhone would literally do it 30 times a day. Watch a AR-plus video? When I close app I still see pause and all the other buttons. Same with tons of other apps.

    My perfect Android would be a Pixel with the right specs.
    For example - a Pixel 5 XL (Ultra?) with: all 16 MP cameras for even better stills (including ultrawide and frontfacing),video recording that rivals or exceeds that of the iPhone pro, 5000 mA battery (or however much would give us all day battery and excellent standby time), 120Hz oled display (2k res, at least 600 nits max brightness), effective Soli sensors (probably in top n bottom bezels), and a fingerprint sensor (in addition to their excellent face unlock tech) on the back so I can unlock the phone in my pocket before I take it out, or if it's facedown.
    So, really, just 6 major changes to the 4XL.... If only.

    I went into this event hoping I'd be excited for this phone.
    I was very, very, *very* disappointed.
    And afterwards, I was more excited for the next gen Pixel buds, and now that the reviews are out, I was right. It's a great set of earbuds, and the true wireless earbuds that the android market needed.

    You didn't seriously say you missed the notch at the beginning of the video, did you? Notches are BY FAR the worst thing that has happened in the mobile device world. Manufactures need to get rid of notches, hole punches, or anything that disrupts the display.

    I know one thing for certain, there's alot to be said for machine learned portrait shots. I saw the single hairs in that one photo? If your a camera nut job the pixels are heads above the competition. I just wish they had better prices for what's offered. Very good review. Can you imagine if the XL had 8gigs and 256gb's of storage. Then you get your monies worth!

    Face unlock is a fad that can't pass fast enough, if you ask me. Sometimes I just want to access my phone quickly and discreetly - can't do that when you have to put it to your face. What's more, having wet hands or gloves on is not a good use case: if your hands are too wet or too covered up to unlock your phone... then they're too wet or covered to use it!
