Is the Google Pixel truly a "dull phone" as some commentators suggest? I got mine in the silver variant and I've come to think of it as being elegant in an understated sort of way. Its snappy pocketable & clean - the only real thing lacking is probably water resistance. What does the forum think?

- Andrew MModerator I've not bought the p2 for its audio prowess and i wouldn't buy the z play specifically for audio either. The p2 is fine for audiobooks and podcasts (on earphones and the phone's speakers. I've got another audio orientated device with me if i get desperate for high quality music.
The p2 is more about the battery life and screen. It's just gone 3pm. I've had GPS on all day, have brightness set reasonably high and I'm at 75% battery life. It's a relaxing feeling knowing i don't have to think about battery Iife at all.
Also, it seems to be working fine with a 125gb SD card (so far).2w
- yes but see you, Tayo & Xerxes with the p2.
You have an extra audio only device.
Tayo wants a separate camera.
And Xerxes wants another compact good camera phone.
With a flagship you have just one device unless you don't mind carrying extra, all the time.
It isn't so obvious that choosing the p2 over the S7 or other equivalent flagship is as clear cut2w
- Andrew MModerator i want excellent battery life, excellent audio, a smaller device for one handed use and a larger device for things like onenote, PowerPoint... The different sizes are hard to get in one device (at the moment). Which leads me to 2 devices, getting a better mix of features in two devices than a compromise with one.
The p2 gives me battery life and is more than good enough for podcasts and audiobooks. The s7 wouldn't help me significantly in the areas that I'm after and would give me worse battery life. It would be an easy choice between the p2 and s7 for me - the p2's battery life gives it the edge, and is half the price ☺
If i want to listen to excellent quality music i have a dedicated music player which blows most phones out of the water including the s7.
The main problem with the p2, for me, is its size. It's too big for comfortable one handed use and too small for what i want as a mini tablet (where 6"-6.6" is better). The s7 wouldn't help much in this size area (and costs twice the price of the p2).
A shame that there aren't "flagships" that hit the p2 battery life!2w
- john doe+1That's the question people are asking, how come lenovo manages as big a battery in a similar form factor and the others cannot. Have yet to see a p2 disassembly video. How serviceable is a phone when you cram that much battery in

- Yes it is, boring as sin unfortunately.2w
