    I had a two day foray into the world of the Pixel XL.

    I don't know what possessed me. Was it the lure of that screen? bigger 'baddery' Just for a change? Pfft, I'm not sure, but hey, I'm back to my trusty old 7+ again.

    My name is Chris. I have a serious addiction to iPhones.

    Just thought I'd share this with you.

    That bad huh? I've never used an Android phone as a daily driver but I have messed with a few models here and there and I just have no temptation to switch away... just reinforce that feeling when I read testimonials like this!

    The Pixel was overhyped to the point of insanity. Sure, it has great software, but the hardware is really lacking.

    I have also played around with android phones and I found that I was constantly maintaining and rooting them to get them to run how I wanted.
    iOS is just so much less hassle.

    I tried it out about a month ago for two days just to try out the camera. Got it on a Friday, returned it the following Monday. Wasn't impressed. Much happier with Iphone.

    The pixel is no maintenance and no rooting needed to keep it to run smoothly. It's the best Android phone made to date. I find the hardware to be just fine...And the software is the best experience I've ever had on an Android device.

    The pixel is a fine phone. I've not experience with it myself - Samsungs mostly.

    Agreed, also overpriced for what it is

    I have the s7e as well and did away with it because the pixel is great. I love all the hardware on the s7e but the software for me on the pixel triumphs.

    The 6P wasn't a bad phone.

    It's overpriced how so? The iPhone 7 32GB is $700. Pixel is missing water resistance.

    Pixel is missing water resistance, OIS, wireless charging, expandable storage...yet google thinks the 128GB XL is worth almost $900.

    Wait a second. I am comparing the pixel 32GB to a iPhone 7 32GB.

    Pixel = $650
    iPhone 7 = $700

    Both have no wireless charging and no expandable storage so I am not sure what you are comparing but the pixel is perfectly priced. No OIS but it has EIS which used during video is quite amazing. Camera is better than the iPhone 7. No water resistance like I said with the pixel, so get a LifeProof. There are tons of people in the forum buying the nuud and fre for a water resistant iPhone so you can do the same with the pixel.

    Welcome back to the world of Apple Chris!

    Nothing wrong with trying out other brands and operating systems. It's actually a good thing. Sometimes it shows you what you are missing out on and sometimes it just reaffirms why you love the OS you are using. I would have suggested using the Pixel for 2 weeks to give it a chance at winning you over but the iPhone 7 Plus is definitely awesome and if you happy with it, then keep it

    Agreed! It's the best Android phone and biggest competition to the iPhone. Not sure why everyone knocks on it. It's still an Android device so if your stuck on iOS that's a different story.

    I just love the static crackle the mono speaker on the Pixel makes, maybe its the endless selection of accessories that I like the most about it, could be that I can accidentally drop it in water without issues, but most of all I like the piece of mind I get from knowing if I have an issue of any kind with the Pixel, a quick trip to my local Google Store brings a resolution almost always right there on the spot ...*Sarcasm*

    Almost all these apply to how I feel about my s7 .

    I had a brief obsession with trying out Android in the HTC One M7 back in early 2014. I bought the phone on eBay and gave it a whirl but never ditched my then daily driver (Nokia Lumia 920) in favor of it. I returned to iPhone in September 2015 after using Windows Phone for nearly three years. Definitely good to be back, so I feel you, OP. Welcome back!
