Am I the only one that finds the natural materials cases a bit odd? I mean to take such an advanced piece of technology and cover it with wood or leather doesn't seem right.

...well luxury cars have wood trim :/

I always found wood trim in cars a bit odd too.

Although it is often covered by so much finish that it is really only wood in appearance at that point...

Taking modern cold technology and mixing them in use with natural materials is a contrast I find highly appealing. I've always been drawn towards tech that makes use of natural materials like wood and leather.

Just woke up and saw this: http://www.macrumors.com/2016/10/11/apple-shares-high-samsung-scrapping-note-7-brand/

I guess (as you alluded to earlier) thinking beating the iPhone 7 to the market because it seemed like low hanging fruit was the dumbest thing they could've done - doubling down on that - well...

Judging from this thread and reputable review sites like Ars Technica, people are loving the iPhone 7.

I wonder how many people are going to turn in their Samsungs for non-exploding iPhones. Although, I suspect they're more likely to try a Pixel. 

post #3024 of 3200
Unless they need a non exploding phone today. Are we at the point where you can walk in to any store and get a 7+ without waiting?

Pixel XL would be several weeks out, especially if you didn't preorder. And the marketing for it is a little confusing... Makes it sound like the pixel is Verizon only.
post #3025 of 3200
Yeah, it looks to be VZ only. However, where I live, AT&T sucks. I've had them since 1999, interned there, and my dad worked there for more than a decade. I switched to VZ for the iPhone 7 and like it - not love it, but like it more than AT&T.
post #3026 of 3200

Oh, right. They just announced it not released it :x

post #3027 of 3200
But it is not vz only. Your can buy it straight from Google for the same price (and with financing and a free vr headset). Works on every US carrier.

Verizon is the only carrier currently selling it directly, but if you buy from them, you get a locked phone and probably some Verizon bloat software...

Verizon must have paid for all of the marketing... Otherwise why wouldn't Google want direct sales?
post #3028 of 3200
I really don't think the axing of the note 7 is going to majorly boost iPhone 7 sales as the stock action seems to suggest. Maybe they'll get a couple hundred thousand more but to the tune of million(s)? Doubtful.

Feels more like a boon to the pixel more than anything.
post #3029 of 3200
I'm a moron that didn't realize the Pixel was fully unlocked. Does it work on all bands? As you know, the various iPhone 7 models don't work across all bands - well the AT&T one anyway, which makes no sense why they did that.
post #3030 of 3200
Yeah, pixel just works
