I expected a lot more from the pixel. It's very expensive yet after less than a year it's already playing up. It restarts itself at random times and then gets stuck on the start up screen for ages. I take it with me on holiday and my last holiday in the state was a revelation as the shortcomings of this phone. Didn't get network coverage even though it's supposed to go onto the local one. Couldn't make phone calls, connect to the internet when I had WiFi or send texts. If I wasn't still paying for it on my monthly contract I would have smashed it to pieces in anger and frustration. Many features are missing particularly in the settings. Very simple things that make life easier. Non existent here.
The camera is also temperamental and takes blurry photos whenever it wants to. Zoom not great. Nothing about this phone is as good as Google pretends. I regularly loose the sound so can't speak to my son and he can't hear me. The earphone jack works intermittently sometimes just stops mid song. I feel stupid for buying into it. I guess when you're such a big company you can buy any advertising you want. Overrated and underwhelming as far as I'm concerned. I'm going back to carphone Warehouse to tell them that it's faulty. If not faulty then it's definitely not fit for purpose and Google should refund. No way a phone lasts so little time. I even have my very first mobile and not a scratch on it, none of my previous phones performed so badly. Never again. I'm going back to the overall better performance of Samsung.
