Not to mention the carriers pimp out android phones any way they please. Apple is strong enough to not allow that.

All good points, thanks. The phone is still available through the Google store. Not optimal for US customers who finance through their carriers mainly.

That I agree with you 100%. It's available to them, but maybe not in a manner that would not allow for them to purchase.

The Google Store has financing and protection plans according to Android Police, what would be the difference financing with Verizon or Google? And Google has the free Daydream VR if you preorder as well. If I were to buy one, I wouldn't go through Verizon. That version eliminates the main strengths of the Nexus/Pixel phones, unlocked across all carriers and updates straight from Google.

I normally stay out of this but we can't really compare the two companies, google has established data centers while apple is still building there's despite being Amazon's biggest customer , google and Microsoft. All that costs apple almost 1.5B a year on all the 3 providers and they are using the same supplier approach for getting low prices.
