      Google would be better off doing what they do best - software. Leave the messy hardware business to hardware manufacturers.

      This is awesome. For me I don't have much time to watch this stuff but I love the way you guys do it and the commentary. Can i also say Brian Cooley and Lexy Savvides did such a wonderful job breaking down all the rumours and the products plus the conversation was so informative and very interesting. Well done you guys and Real respect tk you guys for these events. Could you maybe do the live coverage for One Plus and Xiaomi devices maybe. Go cnet!

      This was great. I liked the talk at the beginning with expectations and the breakdown afterwards. I haven't been on this channel much, but I liked how both speakers were decently knowledgeable about relevant tech in different directions. Helped process the event much better. Also great personalities 👍

      I have to say I am really disappointed, I was really hoping they would bring out a new and much more powerful, larger Google Speaker, pref hi-fi quality speaker that I can happily use one either side of my tv for great stereo sound, a speaker to rival or better Amazons offering but NO, they only release a slightly improved google mini :(

    • MaZEEZaM

    They say they think telephoto is more important than wide angle ... well this is a phone used to capture everyday life ... we want to photograph what we experience,sceneries and our family and friends... who are with us. Not strangers in the distance ...

    It’s cool how Google just gave us some brand new smartphone features 5 years before Apple will introduce them.

    • Churro Playz
      Churro Playz 2 months ago

      Christopher Finn Apple does that cause they first wanna see the results of how that turns out. They saw wireless charging became more useful since people complained about cables and so Apple capitalized on that. That’s marketing for you.

    • Christopher Finn
      Christopher Finn 3 months ago

      Jack Alope I was just kidding around. There’s really nothing great but what I mean is that Apple waits like 5 years to do what everyone else does even if it’s a good feature like 5 years to add wireless charging

    • Jack Alope
      Jack Alope 3 months ago +2

      Christopher Finn you mean the air swiping thing? I don’t see many manufacturers copying that and/or it actually being used for much of anything.

    • Paul k.
      Paul k. 3 months ago +1

      @SoundsoTheir consumer products and presentation feel similar to Microsofts consumer business of the last years. Googles design language constantly becomes more colorful, includes new materials, the videos show families and old people in overloaded apartments. They are talking about the way we use tech instead of beeing tech obsessed or nerdy about their products.

    • King of the Internet
      King of the Internet 3 months ago

      @Martin Palomares Are people not allowed to express critiques? Google releases sub par products at premium prices. The only way consumers will get a better Pixel is by not purchasing the phone and then giving Google feedback.

      @Martin Palomares I am definitely not buying it. The wide angle would have nice and needed as most people take pictures of thier friends and family in doors in small spaces. Just don't understand how the Google people seem to be soooo out of touch constantly.
