I don't think the head is large. It looks to be the same body as the OP3 and OP3T just with a different camera sensor and the bezels on the OP3 are small. Of course these might be fake leaks as well. OnePlus has been known to do that before.

Pixel Blue doesn't look as good as that red. Looks so good. Wasn't there a neon green yellow tennis ball color?

I couldn't agree more. I still love my red Nexus 5 every time I look at it and it's a damn shame that it's unusable due to the battery and old age. My white Galaxy S7 is obviously an upgrade hardware-wise, but the design puts me to sleep every time I look at it. It's even worse that Google and LG screwed up the 5X in every way.

I'm seeing the Nextbit Robin for 179€ on Amazon and I'd love to buy it, but I can't justify it. There's no need for me to own one, but it's just so... pretty.

I really hope Razer lets the team put out a proper successor.

I doubt they will. The Nextbit Robin is a gem in a world of same ol. Shame it ended up like this.

I ended up giving mine to a family member and they love it. It's just so much fun to look at.

My mom needs a new phone for 150-160 bucks. She only needs it for WhatsApp, taking photos (point and shoot) and calling, but I don't want that she gets some cheap Chinese spyware phone that breaks after 6 months.

Any recommendations in that price category?

I'm considering the Samsung Galaxy J5, LG K8 (2017), Honor 5C, Xperia XA and ZTE Blade V7.

Out of these, the Honor 5C and Blade V7 seem like the best picks, but I have no experience with them. The LG is only in there, because it has double-tap to wake and my mom likes it on her current Lumia.

e: I just saw the Moto G4 for 149€ on ebay, which I'm also considering now.

Wonder if they will change up the material again. I still miss the sandstone look and feel of the og. At least have that as an option vs a case.

Fuchsia is Google's new still in development OS that is supposedly destined to pretty much any kind of computing device from phones to pcs.
Unlike Android or ChromeOS its kernel is not Linux but a brand new one called Magenta.

So I took a Google pixel xl overseas due to project fi, and I am liking it more than my 7plus. I love the camera shortcut.

The one thing I can't deal with is the battery life. I'm struggling to get past 3hrs of SoT. Any suggestions to improve it? I basically have everything off too (Google assistant, location)

Weird. Was getting like 4.5 on the pixel small. Is it only during travels or at home as well?

Installing now.

But lol at the changelog on the pixel C it says it's a Nexus 6P xD

Gonna be a while before feedback on the pixel XL...this whole background installing thing takes ages but the pixel C is currently booting up the update.

Google weren't kidding about the boot time it's really fast!

PiP mode doesn't seem to work yet and the custom lock screen apps also don't work.

New ambient display though just a small update though.
