That was a very smooth delivery. Here are a few thoughts in no particular order:

Looking at all the "Made by Google" products, I think they need a Jony Ive to develop a design language.

Pixel XL and iPhone 7 Plus with 128GB both cost ¢819 if bought directly in the UK, certainly no price differentiation ;-)

Same here. Google matches Apple prices for 32 and 128 GB configurations of both iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

Wieder kein Dual-Sim Handy :( Und das obwohl sie nicht mal auf die Carrier Rücksicht nehmen müssen und Android längst offizielle Dual-Sim Unterstützung hat.

I'm tempted by the Pixel XL as my Nexus 5 is starting to get old and support is stopping. Only "problem" is that it is competing for the same pot of money which might be taken up by a DJI Osmo+.

Daydream could be a great VR set. If it catered for current phones. which it doesn't.

Well, Apples main business model is hardware and services and they charge for it. And don't underestimate to what "Nickel & Dime" sums up.

Googles main business model is data. That's why unlimited & free space sounds too good to be true. At the end nothing is really for free!

buying a dumb TV is not easy - especially if 'dumb' is not 'trying hard to be smart'

Sir Jony would probably suffer a heart attack from each and every of the Pixel cases.
