dennis tennis: President Trump will put a wall around China. We can't trust China. Our only true friend is Russia. Don't ever use any electronics or apps from China, trust Russian, they have our backs.

Trump will do it his way. Refreshing to see someone who could care less about established doctrine. It's America first now baby!! No more Chinese dollar stores LOL!! And hopefully removal of all taxes and duties and Russian vodka!

newe: What is the purpose of a "selfie" anyway? I've never taken one nor do I intend to. I do not feel the need to show everyone what I'm eating for dinner or that I've arrived some place nobody cares about. I think I'll go get a sandwich now, does anybody care?

It is not just youth, tons of adults as well. Guess I'm not narcissistic enough. It just strikes me as odd to say "look at me...here I am...see what I am doing." Little kids do this...they stop...then start all over again once they start to go to school in this new selfie-world. It is totally bizarre. It is a shame that Social Media Disorder is so prevalent. Honestly, I don't care what your plate of food looks like.

usernamealreadyinuse: I wonder more about the implications of © infringement and image piracy, now that images can be up-sampled 400% above their original file size with apparently 'little loss' in quality. Thanks, AI?

In the internet age (including fake news ;-) ), most people have cared less about this. People will use it if they want to; its is a non sequitur.

ybizzle: Or just look in your bag before you leave to see if everything is there. You can also create a check list to be safe you don't miss anything. This product is DOA and anyone who funds this will pretty much be throwing money in the toilet.

Exactly!!! But this is crowd funding after all...toilet bombs away!

If you have a waterproof camera you can go full nude.

Samuel Jessop: Having had the Nexus 4 and currently Nexus 5, I'd been waiting eagerly for this to launch. The pricing is impossible to justify however, at up to £819 for the 128GB XL.

I'm now faced with a difficult decision:
1. Buy a OnePlus 3T and make do with a camera which is a step down from my Nexus 5. Sobering that the 3T and a Ricoh GR is a similar price to the XL.

2. Buy a Galaxy S7, which has an excellent camera, is more weatherproof than the Pixel, and has impressive build quality. However using TouchWiz is annoying and I want lighter, cleaner stock android, plus ideally 64GB or more on board storage. It also has OIS which is welcome.

If I was pushed I'd get the 3T, but for now I need to wait for either the price gouging to calm down or for someone like OnePlus to use a better camera module.

@Rhawi What is wrong with the battery life? I have not had it that long. Seems ok and certainly a step up from the Nexus 5. Let me know what to look for.

M Chambers: Still no expandable storage. Google wants to squeeze every last drop out the consumer making them pay more for larger internal storage.

You'd think they would have learned from the mistakes of others.

There's no hope for you if you don't have a backup during that 18 months time frame (LOL). I'll always take the external storage over the cloud, especially when I'm in Africa or other place with no service. Even with the cloud, there is no real excuse no to have external storage these days...none. And what did you do when there was no cloud?

@Samuel. I agree. Pricing is ridiculous. I went from a Nexus 4 to Nexus 5. Was hoping for a reasonably priced Pixel. Never happened. So I got a Nexus 6P from Best Buy for nothing (actually came out ahead by $40...long story there). I love the 6P. Never an issue with the Nexus line for me. I'm always ok to be one generation behind and getting those phones just after the new ones come out. Never have to add anything to a contract or pay cash up front....haven't for years and years. The 6P's screen is amazing and, from my perspective, blows away the smaller Pixel screen. The larger one, well, that is another issue.

@Lars...only where you have service, or a data plan. It is not about the cloud at all. It is about selling phones with more storage at inflated prices; don't fall into the "Google trap" of saying the cloud will set you free so you don't need additional easy to add features. The cloud is just a straw man. But then again, if I'm going somewhere where I will be taking lots of pics, I will bring the so-called "real" camera.

Who would give his real birthdate to any such site?

Doesn't matter...only 365 days in a year anyway....guessing is easy.

Be more worried about credit cards.

Good ole Marissa Mayer....she's the poster child now of what a Board of Directors should NOT do; hire because it "looks good." Yahoo has become a trash bin under her watch. Obviously she was not qualified for the position, but what does she care? She's made her millions upon millions and so on. What is worse is that the real culprits in all this, the Board of Directors, were so neutered and afraid of her and the media that they could not do the right thing and get rid of her ages ago. The Board deserves just as much of the blame in all this. All this while the "regular folk" at Yahoo get screwed over for doing their jobs. Another example of prime corporate gangsterism in America.
