The truth is that Google will never sell as many phones as Samsung or Apple. The article does go in detail to say why this is the case, but one of the biggest reasons is carrier support and marketing. Here in Canada all the carriers sell the phone, but in the large market that is US, you can only see the phone in person at Verizon or order it online from Google. Most people still go to carrier stores and walk away with whatever device the sales person is being pressured to support that week, and Apple & Samsung spend far more in marketing and PR to make their phones the ones to push.

That's what I'm thinking too. I'm ok with the edge not being protected. So what are some good options?bigsky2 wrote: ↑Jan 29th, 2018 6:30 pmI think the only solution is to get a non-full screen / non edge to edge screen protector to keep a majority of the screen protected.
It seems like the protectors with the adhesive edges suffer from application issues after installation, or excessive glare or reflection since the Pixel's screen is not completely flush with the underside of the screen protector.

I went with a wet application protector. Uses water and soap to apply the protector, so any fudge ups can be corrected easily.

Are there any that doesn't require a wet installation?bigsky2 wrote: ↑Feb 23rd, 2018 1:11 amI went with a wet application protector. Uses water and soap to apply the protector, so any fudge ups can be corrected easily.
Inexpensive, decent coverage - about 2mm away from the extreme edge of the screen where it meets the phone's body.
I'm happy with the results and I haven't thought about looking for an alternate protector.
I have read great reviews on the Whitestone Dome Glass, which is currently the best screen protector for the P2XL as it feels like tempered glass and has excellent coverage including the curved edges.
Installation requires patience as it uses a LOCA based adhesive liquid solution.
Mind you it's quite expensive, but it might be worthwhile if you want the clarity and silkiness of glass.

That's pretty good...I might try that...moh2010 wrote: ↑Feb 28th, 2018 8:38 amHola
If you are not the type to attempt installing any TPU based screen protector, you could consider the clear plex protector that is sold by BestBuy. For $35 they will install the screen protector for you and should the protector ever come off or have any faults they will replace it at no cost for the life of the phone. I have already replaced my protector 2 times so far. I changed phone cases several times and this caused the edges to raise a little so I had it changed. You can replace the screen protector at any BestBuy or BestBuy Mobile store.
The main constraint of there screen protector is that it does attract fingerprint smudges but you can simply wipe it off with a microfiber cloth... Still a pain to deal with though.
