Google partners with uBreakiFix to provide walk-in screen replacements for Pixel phones
Google is making Pixel and Pixel XL screen replacements rather straightforward for customers by partnering up with uBreakiFix, a chain of over 250 locations across the United States and Canada.

Owners of the smartphone will be able to have their screens replaced on the spot, with the service priced $130 for the Pixel and $150 for the Pixel XL. Google will be supplying uBreakiFix with original parts, so you know that only the right stuff goes inside the device being repaired.

In addition to screen replacements, the chain will also offer water damage diagnostics, battery replacements, charge port repair, and a general diagnostic service. The services are available by mail-in order as well, in case you aren't able to take your device to a location.

The partnership presents a convenient alternative to dealing with customer service, which might take longer to pick up your device, investigate the problem, fix it, and mail it back.

It's kinda weird that you keep posting that same link in several Google Pixel articles, talking about some reasons not to buy the Pixel phones. Are you seeking to prevent someone, anyone to purchase it? From that very same website from your link, here are 7 reasons to buy these Pixel phones: http://techpathy.com/7-reasons-buy-google-pixel-xl/ Deal with it.

I think everyone reading here is aware of the downsides, and some of them apply to a lot of phones out there, not just isolated to the Pixel (nonremovable battery, water resistance, etc.)

Quote: "No I don't wanna prevent someone..." Alright. But, in order to be fair and neutral in telling people to check both aspects before puchasing, you should not only link to an article stating the cons, but you should as well link to an article stating it's pros in the same comment. But, as per my notice, you only post the link to that website stating the cons of the Pixel phones. I haven't seen you post a link to a website stating it's pros, - or have you? If you only post links about it's cons, and do not link to it's pros too, then it seems like you're only trying to draw people's attention to the cons of these Pixel phones, thus giving the impression that you're aiming to somehow prevent someone, anyone from puchasing those Pixel phones. But it's alright, I understand your point, though you could as well take my suggestion into consideration, if you indeed want to "tell people to check both aspects before buying".

I was on a few other sites today and saw similar posts with a link to the same article as he did here. They were all on Android sites, and most other commentors took his message for what it was. The only thing I can figure is he's paid to post this to sites by a competitor, like Samsung or LG. Regardless, I agree if he really wanted to show the whole argument, he'd link to both articles with pros and cons.

Cool. Better than having to send it in and possibly be without a device for a few days.
