I got my Pixel 7 a month ago and I'm very happy with it definitely the best phone I've owned. It's a very well balanced phone not great at any one thing (well except photos) but a good all around phone

If you care about any other aspect of the phone, BUT the camera...get a one plus instead.
Way better in any aspect.

Is there a way to not have bokeh all the time on the camera....I have the pixel 7 and find it annoying.

In the pic you can see that "chopper top" is nice and sharp but the further out you go from that, the blurrier it gets.

Do you have instructions on how to get it to Canada for that price? All the steps, I mean.

I used to have a oneplus. Is the software better than Pure Google OS now? Just curious. The integration and AI chip is hard to match I think?

Buy direct from Google! I got an upgrade to a better model when there was an issue with my earlier Pixel. They don't really question you. Not sure if that has changed since.

I got mine from the Virgin mobile BF deal where I pay $2 for 24 months, $150 in the source gift card so like a free phone.


Never had any of those issues so not sure how some do. Face works every time unless it's dark, fingerprint works 95 percent for me on both thumbs. What phone has better specs for the price? Oh right, none.

Honestly...is about the same...even maybe a small +1 for the One+.
Had no glitches on One+, compared to a few bugs/glitches on the P7P.
Hopefully they will fix them...but is annoying when they happen.

For those debating where to buy this, here are some thoughts:

Amazon (and others where it's on sale like Bestbuy?):
-You know the level of customer service your getting for the purchase from your other experiences.

Google
-You can earn credit for future purchases if you have a paid Google One subscription (2TB plan gets you 10%). You have to pay for two months since the credit is given 30 days after purchase, might not be worth it.
-Rakuten.com (US) has some cashback offers
-However some people report that there are serious concerns over customer service with Google, e.g. lost returns! More details can be found in the other thread.
-Not sure, but I hear they have the enhanced exchange option for warranty and stuff, i.e. you can put a hold on your Credit card and get a second phone, transfer data and return the first which releases the hold.

Personally I got lucky without a problem with Google Store but just something I thought I would share so you make an informed decision.

It's sold out right now on Mint website but that's a great deal for a P7Pro. Going to keep checking to see if it get back in stock ever.

For the sake of all that is holy, do NOT buy directly from Google Store if you have other options.

I don't even want to get into it, but if you have a problem with your purchase, returns and support from Amazon is far superior than the Canadian Google Store. Google's customer service is a nightmare.

This has definitely changed in the past year or so. Dealing with Google Store is an absolute nightmare. I will never buy anything from their store again. I have bought at least 2 dozen Google products from their Canadian online store, and the issues I have had in the past two years have been unbelievable.

Making a return has become a nightmare. Trying to get customer support is hours wild goose chase. With one of the purchases the return process had so many issues that I eventually gave up entirely on the return. It was a doorbell camera model that wasn't compatible our system. That thing is still sitting in a box. Getting my money back was not worth the stress it had become dealing with Google's customer service.

I have bought pretty much every other generation of Google phone starting from the original Nexus. The days of them sending a replacement or upgrade for phones with issues is long gone. I had a charging issue with my Pixel 6. After a solid hour and half of jumping through the loops of "troubleshooting" on the phone, they told me that "this issue needs to be escalated to our engineering team". Instead of them taking my phone back and running their own diagnostic to figure why the fffff it's not charging, they sent me a long list of procedures they wanted me to do first, followed by generation of a bug report to email them. Why is that a company worth $1.3 TRILLION f**KING DOLLARS making its customers do the job of their technicians? Anyways, I did what they asked me to do, which took a good few hours. Eventually they decided that the phone needs to be replaced - this was three weeks later. I said sure, please send a replacement. Their reply email: "we are sorry, the warranty for your phone run out last week, but here is a list of approved repair shops that can look into this for you." They did not give a shit that I have bought half a dozen Google phones in the past, or that I'm a Google One subscriber.

Never again. Google's phone OS is awesome. But their reliability and customer services has gone entirely to the shitter.

Hmm my Pixel 2XL's power button has finally started glitching, so this looked interesting, but the rampant reports of the camera glass shattering makes this look like a pass for me.. Not really sure what if anything is a worthy successor to the 2XL, so I'll probably be looking at repair to hopefully stretch this phone out another year or two.

I had quite a good experience with the Google Store when my Pixel C delivery was stolen. They shipped a replacement without question immediately without problem. That was a few years ago, so it's possible it's gotten worse.

I got one today to replace my Samsung S10. So far, so good and it is noticeably speedier. Even the fingerprint sensor works as expected.

Frankly, I really wanted another Samsung S21 FE or S22 but $250-400 more, no thanks.
