I'm quite amused that on the Google Play store right now the basic model Pixel 2 is actually cheaper than the Pixel (when you take into account that the £30 difference wouldn't get you an extra 32GB of storage).

My Nexus 5X froze today and won't come back on. I managed to get it to the boot menu by holding power+vol down, but after I selected 'start'...nothing.

Tried again, after selecting 'start' I got the Google logo, and then, nothing.

Now i can't even get to the boot menu.... I think it's toast, sadly. I've had it 16 months, which feels disappointing, moreso as my iphone 3G and 4S still work - and I was really quite pleased, battery life aside, with the phone.

So the Pixel 2 costs £629 which is about the going rate for premium smartphones, except crazy Apple ones, of course. Price wise it's acceptable.

Early impressions of the phone from review sites who've had a hands-on at the demo seem good, but no headphone jack (WHY?) and the fingerprint scanner is still on the back which is stupid.

I'm not even much of a listener to music or suchlike on my phone, but I do occasionally plug headphones into it to listen to something. I don't understand the logic of removing something as neutral as a headphone jack, unless it's just to sell you the £150 wireless bud thingies.

The fingerprint scanner on the back is a pain. Maybe it's something you get used to but it seems like a daft choice to me.

Still, it'll probably be my next phone, I'm fed up with third-party fucking with Android, and miss the 'clean' Android experience of my Nexus 5.

My OnePlus 5 is pretty 'clean', is well cheap for a high end device, and has a headphone socket

I lose headphones at least monthly. Find me £10 Bluetooth headphones and I'd agree with you.

As a regular headphone user, I’ve got through A LOT of wired headsets cause they always seem to break at that hard plastic but near the jack. It’s always the same, it feels like a loose wire or something and you’re turning the jack around in the socket or bending the wire to try and get it to pump sound out of both speakers instead of one; oh wait, no, now the sounds crackly; no, here goes, oh fuck, now Siri thinks I want to talk to her sporadically, nope, here goes, the sweet spot, and it’s back in my pocket with you Mr Phone, nope fucking lost sound in the left again.

Im not saying I’d pay eARPHONE money for a wireless pair but wired headsets are gash and I’d rather pay a bit more so I didn’t have to fork out more money in 3 months time.

I have 3 pairs of bluetooth headphones from China for less than a tenner, probably not your Audiophile standard, but absolutely fine for listening to music on your phone with, they are as good as the £45 Sennheiser's I had as a comparison - I have never bought anything more expensive. I bought them for the exact reason Sat said.

My issue with wireless earphones is the same one I have with wireless keyboards and mice. I don't want to worry about something fundamental to my interaction with the device running out of juice.

I've got some of these anker ones from Amazon for running and on the bike:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Anker-Headphon ... 01IUP89LS/

They're pretty good. A bit lacking in bass but ok for the most part and absolutely fine for audiobooks and whatnot. It is one more thing to remember to charge but because I don't have some stupid shitty phone with no headphone jack I know I could always use the pair of buds that are stuffed down in one of the pockets in my work bag.

Which is why most Bluetooth headphones come with a cable so you can connect them if you run out of battery. Just keep it in your bag or desk drawer. Not that it really affects me. Mine are amazing and last weeks on end.

"Most"? I've owned 5+ pairs and only one (the reeeaaalllyyy expensive ones) has that.

I got a pair as a Kickstarter backer. The sound quality is super bad, but they're nifty for wearing on the bike for instructions from Google maps, and have the benefit of not impairing your ability to hear road noise.

I guess at the cost of impairing your ability to actually see where you're going if it's dark.

A cost can't be placed on style.

I picked up my Nokia 8 today and have finally jumped on the Android bandwagon.

It's going to take a lot of getting used to but so far, it's very messy compared to the Windows Phone. I was quite heavily invested in Microsoft and as far as I can tell, this phone is finding it difficult to ignore my Google contacts and just use my Microsoft ones.

Also, the play store is quite an eye opener. Unless you know the name of the app you want to search for, I can see it being very hard to find something that isn't an ad infested pile of rubbish.

Yep.

I will fondle your phone this weekend.
