I can’t help but gush about the industrial design of these phones. The accented sleep/wake button is very charming. All the visual elements seem well-proportioned. Love the colors. The marketing material is fun and light, and it does a good job showing off the phone’s many good angles.
One thing that really struck me that was actually also a feature in the previous Pixel was the unlimited cloud storage for photos. I forgot how big of a USP that was last year, and now a year later, they bring it up again. While it goes to show how little the competition cared about it to begin with, it makes the concept of paid cloud storage – *cough* iCloud – a bit embarrassing, doesn’t it?
