    This Galaxy S7 should be a backup phone soon. Have to try the Pixel!

    Pixel sounds great, but I can't justify replacing my Nexus 6P this time 'round. Waiting till next year… or a super-sale :)

    Placed my order shortly after the event. Expected delivery is the end of the month! Took less time to get my wife's iPhone 7.

    If Pixels are a success perhaps next time they'll have a bigger inventory at launch. Apple knows there are going to be a few million devices sold at launch. Google probably has no idea whether it'll sell 1,000 or 10,000 Pixels :) And almost everybody I know who has a 2015 Nexus is sitting the Pixels out.

    I have a Nexus 5X. It's an OK phone, but frankly it feels cheap. Maybe 6P owners feel differently. Don't know as I've never used a 6P. I'll see how the Pixel feels soon (not soon enough).

    My wife has the 5X and I have the 6P. I was going to get my wife the Pixel XL for Christmas, but the price is pretty steep, even for the 32GB model. If they knock $100 off on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, I'll get it for her

    A lot of people will say that 6P feels more "Premium" than 5X but I'll tell you it only feels more slippery :)

    We all know that you can't have the best of both worlds (hardware & software) on Android. Your S7 Edge sure is a beautiful piece of equipment, tons better than my Nexus. And remember, AT&T takes its own file to that cutting edge of yours, dulling it to the best of their abilities.

    Yes, but they still had to cut some corners, such as water resistance. I'm having high hopes for the next year's model :)

    I think Marshmallow is a good version. It's probably the newest version available for that device.

    My Moto X Pure Edition from the Lenovo factory earlier this year, is on Android 6.0. It has received two updates.

    Husband got a Pixel on Black Friday weekend deals. He wanted the XL - I wanted to stay small. Ordered the XL on my line - swapped with him when it came in on Dec 28th. I LOVE the battery life even in the small one - and it is so awesome to not have to unlock/root my phone to eliminate all the pre-loaded crap from a carrier. The camera - A-mazing!

    Samsung, the biggest lying company in the world, continues promising Android 7. (Like so many other unkept promises). My S7-Edge phone is (still) on 6.0.1

    Wanna bet the AT&T version will be the very last to receive the update? Although I did see something about them halting the rollout that they have started a few days ago, so maybe non-AT&T flavors are going to be on hold for a while as well.

    Just read this article on Android Police. I checked to see if update was available. It was. I'm now (finally) on Nougat! But it is not 7.1 (as promised by Samsung), it is 7.0
