Geezz. all you d1psh1ts forget that buying any google phone essentially means you're part of a Beta program s**t wont work 100% of the time, so its user beta tested - In exchange for bleeding edge latest Android and top notch hardware...

PhoneArena trying way too hard to defame Google, even though they know that this is part of beta software (which will have some bugs). Not all users are affected. Only those who opted for beta program. Why that is not mentioned in this article?

Pixel is dead to me now that they start at an absurd $799. At least that version doesn't have that notch, but still too expensive. I would rather have a One Plus or a Galaxy phone and save money in the process.
