Pros and Cons

Pros2

They are on the level with any flagship device. The last pixel with a non-google processor.

Great phone. Great battery life. Qualcomm snapdragon. Very easy to recover apps and files from previous phone.

Cons3

Google has very poor customer service for phone. There is a known motherboard issue with dozens of people having seen the same catastrophic failure - which converts the phone to a useless brick. The only fix is to restart the phone and call the person...  Read More

Do not buy from google. Don't recommend. You have been warned. No warning; working one moment and then gone.

Pros3

Not a single scratch on it. There are a few minor nicks along the side edge near camera area which were not really noticeable from 12 inches away. Honestly the phone looks brand new.

Easy to use, easy transferring info. Fingerprint reader works perfect. User-friendly one ui.

All components were securely enclosed within the box. Using a samsung brand wireless charger from previous phone. The only quibble is it was delivered loose in the box.

Cons3

All 3 camera lenses on the product were obscured with grime, dirt, water, visible from the outside and unable to take a clear photo. Camera lense has scratch. The charger given is not for this phone.

The seller is not compassionate and doesn't care about my concerns. Obviously not inspected as advertised. This phone isn't much better.

I have asked respectfully for a refund or exchange, however seller wants to enforce their warranty policy instead of making a customer satisfied. Condition was supposed to be excellent, but was unusable.
