    Word processing and voice recognition SUCK! Otherwise, a good phone

    I got this phone to replace a Samsung Galaxy 5. I find it’s easy to use and for the most part I’m satisfied.BUT! The main thing I use my phone for is chatting with friends on Facebook, Whatsapp, Telegram and Google chat and probably the feature I use most is voice recognition. I HATE the word processing program and I can’t understand how the programmers can be such idiots. The one thing I would like is the microphone icon handy for voice dictation, but it often disappears once you start writing and where it was is populated by a bunch of useless type-ahead word suggestions or emoji. I almost NEVER use these but if I want to voice dictate, I have to go to the keyboard icon and choose the voice dictation. Also the program inserts a period, question mark, or exclamation any time they would fit within the sentence structure. This is super irritating.So overall this is a decent phone EXCEPT it sucks at the main thing I want a phone for!

    Don’t believe the hype, it’s just ok

    Coming from a 4 and a half year old Samsung S9+, I expected to be blown away by half a decade of technological improvements. Sadly, that isn’t the case here. It’s actually been kind of a step backwards.Battery life is average. I get better battery life than my last phone at the end of its life, but it isn’t as good as when I first got my S9+. The adaptive brightness is very bright, the phone has gestures turned on by default that keep it on almost non-stop (these features can be turned off), and the 5G radio probably drains more juice than a 4G radio. If you’re a heavy phone user, you’ll need a charger. All in all, I expected better battery life.The features of the phone are top notch. The camera is great, vanilla Android with no bloatware is nice, and not having to fight with other voice assistants (i.e. Bixby) is simply amazing. There’s no lag when using the phone. Looking forward to near instant Android updates. The E-sim was easy enough to set up through T-Mobile’s website without needing a representative. So that was nice as well.What’s not so great? The under screen fingerprint scanner is absolute trash. It works maybe 5% of the time. The phone isn’t defective, and I don’t use a screen protector. It’s the quality of my skin, which is probably too dry. I can literally lick my finger and it’ll work. I did not have this problem with any Samsung phone, going all the way back to my S7. With that said, it’s difficult to transition back to PIN numbers and copying and pasting from a password manager because of the way the fingerprint scanner works. And I’d rather not be licking my finger, especially in public, in this day and age.I haven’t really noticed any huge differences in speed for WiFi 6E or 5G. That was an important selling point for me, so I’ve been disappointed by real world speeds.Transferring phone info (photos, videos, apps, data in general) was a breeze. The USB-C to USB-C cable made it super simple and it took about 20 minutes. You can choose what to transfer.A phone charger isn’t included. Your old charger will work, but if you want the fastest charging you’ll probably need a new charger. I picked up a Google 30W charger for another $30.I’m hopeful Google steps up and fixes some issues through software, especially the fingerprint scanner, but I don’t expect it. This phone could have been a real iPhone competitor, but Google dropped the ball.

    Works on boost mobile great phone former galaxy S user

    Update: 1/10/23 I have had this phone for a month and half now the phone is great especially after the December update still waiting on January update. Battery has gotten a lot better since Ibought phone but the battery is not going be on par with the Pixel 7 pro or Galaxy S22 ultra those phones have bigger batteries. I come home from work after 8 hours with 40 to 55 percent with moderate use and when I go to bed im at 30 to 35 percent. If I use fanduel or apps that update live data battery drains faster that was also the case on my Galaxy S20. The fingerprint and face recognition have always worked even before December update even better than my S20. Only con if it is a con the phone is slow charging the phone but one could argue that by not fast charging the life of the battery will greatly increased due to less heat. I have not experience any heat issues unless I’m using high CPU apps and the phone does not get hot but warm nothing extreme. I will update in about 2 to 3 months for now my 5 star stands.Initial review I only had this phone for a few days but I really like it so far. I used galaxy S series since the S3 but rising price, the removal of MST, and micro SD card slot I couldn’t justify the price I was paying Galaxy S phones. Boost mobile does not sell pixel so I wondered if I could use an unlock phone and with mixed info online I decided to take the chance. To activate phone you have to call so boost can register the phone on their network it won’t work by online swap. The phone is still learning how to I use the phone for battery optimization, but I am getting 12 hours with moderate use. I live in metro area and I am getting blazing fast speeds but when indoors speeds drops off but not enough where you can’t use the phone unless you are in a dense structure with thick walls. Only issue I had and not due to the phone itself is moving my Samsung calendar to Google calendar but overall this is a great phone especially at the price point. I will update after I have had the phone for awhile.

    Google Pixel 7 was a touch less than the Pixel 7 Pro

    The price was right for the Google Pixel 7 phone and I used it for a few weeks before upgrading to the Pixel 7 Pro. I do like the Pixel 7 Pro better, but the price of the Pixel 7 was decent compared to the 7 Pro. Either would make me happy but I did find that the touch sensitivity on the 7 Pro seemed better than the Pixel 7. The 7 Pro touch was as good as the touch sensitivity on my old Pixel 4 XL. The Pixel 7 didn’t seem to be as sensitive as either the 4 XL or the 7 Pro and that was with the 7s touch sensitivity turned up as high as it would go. The 5G on the 7 was better than my old 4 XL though, so I would have been better off with either the 7 or the 7 Pro compared to my last phone.

    Google 7 nice ph

    I bought this a yr ago. Voice quality is excellent,pictures very nice, fully charges up in like 30 minutes. It has a very good battery time. You will have to use online tutorials to learn what it does or doesn’t. Overall good ph. Price I paid was high I still have my Samsung A 51 I use as alternative. It’s price was 1/3 , truthfully because of the price and quality I would stay with Samsung but I do enjoy the Google.

    Worth the Investment

    I have owned the phone for about three weeks now. Reliable…good signal with AT&T and can’t say enough about the phoneProCamera is stellarSound quality is superbGreat screenFingerprint reader is reliable. Takes awhile to set up but once done…worksBluetooth is solid…paired with 5 different bluetooth items I have including 2 carsOverall performance is fastNewest Gorilla glass-Victus5 years of security updates…three years of OS updatesStereo speakers have good volume without distortingConOnly 256 GB of space…wish it had 512 or moreCan’t add a Micro SD cardDoesn’t come with a battery chargerOverall, the Google Tensor G2 is a pretty fast chip. I am not a big gamer, so it does more than enough for me. For gamers…you should be OK.I get two days out of the battery…keep my screen brightness at 66% and disable apps I don’t use.Purchased the 30W Google battery charger separately…charges the phone in about an hour (ran down to 5% battery remaining). Chatted for better than 4 hours in one day and only consumed about 12% of the battery…The photo quality of this phone is excellent. I have owned other brands of phones that were good, but this phone camera is amongst the best. Zooming with any camera causes pixelation, but the cameras on this phone cause minimal. Colors are rich and sharp.If you want a top line phone without breaking the bank…the Google Pixel 7 is a GREAT option. Google has become a great competitor for top line phones that cost twice as much.

    Nice upgrade

    Had a Pixel 3XL – this is vastly betterExcept for the front screen fingerprint readerLeft thumb works half the time, right thumb never worksHave captured thumbprints for both more than once – not sure why one works and the never hasAlso affected by wet handsOverall, I’d give the fingerprint reader an “F”, shame on Google!Battery life is great – sometimes a couple of daysCamera seems OK, but I’m not a great picture taker, so it might be me (I hate the trigger button position, very awkward for me to reach comfortably)I do wish they would make a much smaller/lighter (iPhone Mini) version of this – that’s what I really wanted

    Excelente telefono

    Nada que envidiarle a los samsung o iphone. Estoy feliz con mi google pixel aunque el unico problema es que en chile no reconoce la red 5G, pero es porque al no venderlo directo aca en Chile las empresas no estan “activandolo” para estos equipos. Asi que si necesitas 5G te recomiendo comprar equipos solo que vendan directo en Chile.Lo bueno es que android siempre se mantiene actualizado y lo otro bueno es la pantalla. Desde que lo compre lo tengo sin mica y se me ha caido un millon de veces incluido golpe contra una esquina de una mesa de vidrio. 0 raya o trizadura.

    I’ll Keep this One a While

    So I can afford a new device more frequently, I avoid those expensive flagship phones. I usually settle for phones costing about $350 or less. Sometimes I go too cheap, and, as the saying goes, you get what you paid for. Considering what goes into a phone these days–and I’m strictly an Android user–I figured a smart, economic buy would be the latest Pixel. Considering Google is designing the software anyway, they’re an entire enterprise based on successful software and AI. These will be the innovators of cellphone software.Well, this did not disappoint. It’s 5G, with WiFi calling, and the camera is excellent. If there’s one complaint, it’s that the fingerprint reader seems to fail a lot–and I do mean a LOT–and I think that’s because the screen protector on it distorts the imprint. I checked other settings on it that allot for the screen cover, but it didn’t seem to work on the level I was hoping for. I have mixed feelings about that. I would prefer that it had a fingerprint pad, like others phones I’ve had. Whatever the issue is, it’s not at all a dealbreaker. If it bothers me too much, I’ll just remove the screen protector.However, depending on how you feel about the fingerprint issue, I’d recommend this phone if you’re looking for a phone that has the features of a higher-end device, but you don’t feel like paying a thousand bucks for it. I think I’ll keep this phone for a couple of years, instead of my usual pattern, to buy a new one every few months.

    Bad Connectivity

    I’ve had a few pixels in the past, so when my Pixel 6 Pro died (my fault as I shattered the screen and it wouldn’t work with 2 after market replacements), I bought this one. Phone signal is decent, but connection to WiFi is terrible. My laptop will be streaming movies with no lags, while my phone will struggle to load an app (this one included). I also could be connected to WiFi and my phone will randomly disconnect from it (my laptop remains connected), so I have to go in and manually reconnect. I live out of the US and had this sent to my friend to bring me when they were coming back, so I can’t return it. It has a good camera and I enjoy the phone well enough, but having connectivity problems defeats the purpose of a phone.

    disappointed

    I just got the phone yesterday and I’ll return it.My last phone was the Samsung A51 brought in April 2020. This phone had a broken camera and battery after about 6 months for no reason – I treat my phone carefully.Before we get into the negative stuff I do have to praise two aspects.- The camera of the phone works really well. I have taken a few shots at night yesterday in my room and I was quite surprised. Compared to my broken Samsung gallery a perfect upgrade.- I like how the phone lies in my hand. It is really easy to type for me.However, I started setting up my new phone today and got only trouble. First, I got the 256GB version because my gallery is about 60GB big, yet my backup in google photos tries to make a backup and is now full so nothing works. (I don’t need a backup – I just need a separate gallery.Second, overnight – my phone was done with all updates yet it lost over 20% battery and I also noticed that the battery percentage was reducing quite fast even after the setup. Regarding the fact that my old phone’s battery was broken so fast, I still felt the googles battery was going away even faster.Third, for some reason, I cannot set the system’s color to white. I always have the nightlight feature activated on all my devices but even without the nightlight activated on my google pixel, it still looks more orange or green (whichever color you choose) than other devices.Fourth, the fingerprint sensor rarely recognizes my fingers. Before the A51 I used the A5 and there the fingerprint sensor wasn’t the best but that was over 6 years ago and I have the same problem again.Fifth, restoring my WhatsApp backup didn’t work. I made a backup of my chats the day before I got the new phone, yet it said there was none available. So I don’t know if this is a phone problem or WhatsApp, yet it drives me crazy.Sixth, the phone’s speed works fine however I don’t see a real improvement in the 8GB compared to my almost 3-year-old Samsung. Yes of course it is slower after these years but the pixel didn’t impress me.Last but not least, the features to personalize your phone seem very limited. I can’t change the lock screen clock, I can’t get rid of the news page left to the first home screen when opening my phone it always shows the day and date on top – which I absolutely don’t need. I would rather have more space on the first page.Overall, I am pretty sad. The google pixel seemed very promising and there wasn’t really another phone competing again it so now I am on the lookout for another option to replace my old phone.

    Works great

    I’ve had this phone for a few months now and it works great. I had a Motorola Moto Stylus before this which I liked a lot but this has much better camera quality which has become more important to me now that I am a parent

    So far so good! The camera quality is absolutely incredible, finally got all the “iphone groupies” off my back about a bad camera! One of my favorite features is the adaptive charging for overnight. It seems what time your alarm is set for and slowly charges to 100% at your alarm time. This will in theory help with overall life of the battery. The only 2 knocks on it (and the reason for the 4 stars), is I cannot always get a full day of use on a full charge. The other issue is the face unlock isn’t very intuitive and doesn’t always work too well, but the fingerprint sensor works fine. I’m willing to live with these issue because I enjoy everything else about the device!

    Satisfying enough

    Overall this is a great phone and gets the job done. I have ran into a few quirks that are a bit disappointing though. The first is sometimes calls will just not come through to my phone from regular contacts, i believe this is a bug with the spam filtering feature google has for their phone calls but im not sure. It can be really annoying to not even know when you have missed calls until that caller mentions trying to contact you. Secondly, if you do any mobile gaming this phone has a weird aspect ratio that cuts the screen a bit too much for most games. It’s not the worst but can be annoying how much extra screen space could be used. Lastly, i was missing the quick switch adapter when i received this phone and while it isn’t a huge deal, it made transferring content from my S9+ so much more of a hassle than it needed to be.

    Opinion from a former iPhone user

    Before into the Pixel 7, I have been using an iPhone12 mini for 2 years. And a Samsung Note 9 before that. Why I chose the iPhone12 mini? Because I wanted a real compact phone. And Why I bought the Pixel 7 now? Well, 1. I want better battery life. 2. I want bigger screen for games and for navigation. 3. IOS just bored me.So, I got the Pixel 7 lemongrass 256g for 599$ and have been using it for a week now. And here are my opinions.In short words, if you have been using Android and want an upgrade now, I really recommend Pixel 7, mainly because it gives you good software experience and decent camera at a very fair price.Exterior & comfort:The color lemon grass is special and I like it. The visor camera bump looks unique and kinda cool in my opinion. The rounded edge makes the phone comfortable to hold. HOWEVER, there are some cons. 1. The bump and the glass back make it awkward to place on any flat surface. 2. The bump is a huge dust collector. 3. Although the edge of the flat screen has a bit of curve, the transition to the metal frame is not good, which means the touch of the edge areas feels a bit cheap, definitely not comparable to Note 9. Overall, I think the look is unique but comes with some sacrifices, and the build quality is fairly good for the price.Operating System:This is the first time I use the so called “pure” Android. Compared to Samsung’s OneUI, the OS on Pixel 7 feels more like Apple’s iOS actually. It doesn’t have as many customization functions as OneUI and is simpler to use. Kinda like iOS, but in a different style, well, the kinda nerdy Google style. If you like it you like it. Some special Google AI features are cool, but should not be the only reason for anyone to buy this phone in my opinion. I haven’t experienced many bugs. Actually, only one when switching between bluetooth audio devices that really bothers me a bit. Overall, I like the system, and I think it is good for anyone but people who have only used iPhone before.Camera:Pixel has always been famous for its camera capabilities. I must say it is true on Pixel 7. It takes very decent photos no matter the light conditions, and the shoot experience is simple and natural. Is it as good or better as flagship phones like iPhone 14 pro? I don’t know, maybe not. But as someone who uses a dedicated camera for street photography, I think the camera on Pixel 7 is more than capable to take nice looking daily photos and capture those little moments into good memories. When it comes to video, it is also good, especially considering the price, but iPhone is better. And I mean iPhone 12 mini. So overall, the camera is very good.Battery life:Not much to say here since I don’t bother to do any “tests” and have no numbers. But based on my feeling, it is good, but not as good as I expected considering the battery capacity. It will last you a full day (8 hours) or more if you use it lightly. But it is no way a two-day or 1.5 day battery life.Gaming:Gaming is trash. At least for pubg mobile. It is probably due to software issue (not optimized for Tensor chip) rather than lack of raw performance. But if you play a lot of 3D mobile games, avoid this one.Conclusion:Decent phone for the price. Actually, even for the normal price ($100 more than what I spent), it is still more than decent. If you don’t want to spend that much on a phone (which is a terribly stupid trend in my opinion), this is the phone for you. Don’t look at iPhone SE, that thing is a joke.

    No bloatware, nice camera, but battery life is short

    I’ve had this Google Pixel 7 phone now for about 8 months, after having used Samsung phones for years. The #1 best thing if you switch from Samsung is the absence of all that bloatware, those apps you never use and can’t uninstall either. This phone saves so much memory by just not having those apps, and it makes it easier to sort through the apps you do have and find the one you need quickly and efficiently. Huge relief, and that’s probably the #1 reason I wouldn’t go back to Samsung. Photography is my hobby and for the first time this year, I did not use my SLR camera at all. I feel bad but the camera on this phone was versatile enough for my purposes! Picture quality is excellent. The magic eraser feature in editing is quite a game changer. The fact that the phone saves photos directly to your Google drive is also nice though sharing pics to social media from there isn’t that straightforward. I do it all the time but I haven’t figured out how to post multiple pics without them appearing in backward order. The biggest negative for the Google Pixel 7 phone is that I need to charge it just about every day. Keep in mind that I don’t use it for gaming or listening to music or watching videos. I literally just use it to text, call, google stuff, occasionally for social media, and maps if I’m driving which isn’t every day. Even so, I have to charge it approximately every 30 hours. This is the one thing they need to change on this phone. I have a 2022 model and it looks like I’ll be getting updates until 2026 which gives them enough time to work on that! The other thing is that fingerprint recognition rarely works. When it does seem to work, I think it’s actually the facial recognition thing that comes on at the same time that’s opening the phone. Facial recognition works great fortunately. Oh, and just for kicks: the feature I like best that the phone comes with is “Now Playing” that identifies what song is currently playing. I put it on my home screen so that I don’t have to switch on my phone to activate it. Just a light touch and it tells me what the mystery song I’m hearing in a cafe or on the radio is. My 20-yr-old nephew who is an iPhone user was actually envious of this feature! It’s not an app — it’s just a feature that appears in Settings>Sound. To summarize: do I like this phone and would I recommend it? A resounding yes. Should battery life be improved? Also a resounding yes.

    Better Value than a Galaxy S23

    I’m coming off a Galaxy S10 and before that an LG G6. I’ve also purchased Samsung A51 and S20 FE’s for my parents. To get the negatives out of way. Side or rear mounted finger print sensors are so much more consistent. Samsung also provides a lot of applications that can be pretty nice like their SoundAssistant app where I can change how the volume button increments/decrements.Using the Firefox app, I can do screenshots that scroll the page on the Samsungs while on this Pixel Mozilla needs to update their app to implement the Google API to support scrolling screenshots and there are probably other apps that I would be able to do scrolling+stitched screenshots on the Samsungs but not this Pixel. There are other things like more options in the long press context menus that make doing things faster on the Samsung compared to the Google Pixels.Default launcher on the Pixel has this full width data/weather/info widget that you can’t remove. It only takes up a little less than a third of the width of the screen. It is a waste of space. If I need the date, I just swipe open the notification menu. Weather, I used the Google weather widget on my Samsung Galaxy but the smallest one that takes up like 2 horizontal app icon widths so I can fit 2 more icons on the row. The button to clear all in the task switcher, you have to swipe all the way to left end rather than just having it always there as a lower row under the application windows. AnnoyingEvery default launcher these days do gestures for going back and opening the app/multitasking switcher. I’ve tried for years and always go back to enabling the bottom menu with the back, home, and task switcher buttons.Gaming and emulation performance on the Qualcomm based Samsungs are a lot better. Samsung provides 1 more year of support compared to Google. Honestly almost everything is better with a Samsung phone than a Pixel. But they are expensive. If I do get into phone games and emulation more though, I’ll probably go back to a Qualcomm based Samsung device unless the future AMD GPU Exynos Tensor have drivers as mature and with application developer support like Qualcomm chipsets do.Outside of all that, aesthetically it looks really nice. They made the buttons in the notification menu way bigger (slower to use than the industrial looking small icons in the Samsung default launcher). Only fits 4 quick actions before having to swipe down fully to get 8 quick actions – swipe left/right for more. For some reason google combined the wi-fi and mobile networks toggle into one so you have to click it, then click the radio button to turn off the wi-fi. Some of the notification collapsing into applications make some app notification utilities more annoying to use toThe fingerprint reader. You may have to redo your fingerprints a couple times to get it well responsive. It’s good for me now. Still fails far more often than my previous phones. End up having to use pattern unlock.Google lens is nice. Fast to get to do the camera point at stuff and it translates. Could already do that with the Google Translate app on any phone. I’m happy with the battery life. I know it’s better on the S23. I’ve gotten used to this 6.3″ disaplay. Not sure if I’d prefer a 6.1″ display. Phone is real smooth besides games. Tried DraStic, Citra, and Tower of Fantasy. Tower of Fantasy performance is not great. DraStic and Citra have surprisingly crashed on me.I was thinking I would hype this phone up compared to Samsung phones but it hasn’t worked out that way. The main thing is really the aesthetics of the phone. I suppose the camera is nice and faster but I have Sony A7III and for photos compositions matter more than gear. I’m not blown away by camera performance compared to a S10E or what I see from people with iPhones and newer Galaxy phones. Low light performance is definitely miles of an upgrade over an S10E. Still, photography is all about composition and lighting and what you do in Darktable/Lightroom.I miss the 3.5mm port. I use bluetooth in the car for a different device so I needed 3.5mm adapter to connect audio to my car. At home my bluetooth audio is a class D amplifier and over ear Sony noice cancelling headphones. Sometimes I’m laying down and just want to put on some 3.5mm earbuds. I need another USB-C to 3.5mm adapter so I don’t have to keep remembering to carry the one in my car everywhere. I don’t think I’ll get over the loss of 3.5mm jacks because of how much audio equipment I have. I’m never buying those Google Airpod knockoffs nor the Samsung ones.After having this phone for a month and then writing this review, I don’t notice the visual UI aesthetics anymore. It’s not truly a plus for me anymore. I’ve gotten over it. It’s a good phone but Samsung does an extra year of major OS and security updates over Google. The Google Tensor is already not as good as Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 let alone the 8 Gen 2. I can wait one year and potentially buy the 1 year old Galaxy phone with a better chipset for the price of a new Pixel. Buying this 256GB version for $600 when the Samsung S23 was going for $800 is nice thoughWanted to overall positive with the review. Still really good phone because modern phones are all overall hit all the basics – even the cheap phones. If the future Tensor processors with AMD GPUs aren’t competitive with Samsungs in gaming/emulation support, the only reason I’d be buying a Pixel is the price.

    Snappy performance, fluid screen, great cameras, excellent value for the money

    I got my Pixel 7 a few days ago from Amazon and I have to say I’m impressed. I’m upgrading from a OnePlus 6T, so keep that in mind when reading my review. I haven’t had any problems. powering it up the first time and transferring all my data from my old phone worked like a charm (better than on my wife’s Pixel 6A, which had a couple of glitches during the process). Setup took a while, mainly because I have a ton of apps that I needed to sign on to. I’ve got almost everything done now, except for the most annoying apps (Okta verify, I’m looking at you). The only issue I had during setup was turning WiFi calling on–it failed twice, then I realized the bad reception in my basement was to blame. When I did it from my living room, where reception is good, it turned on without a problem.In daily use, the phone has worked flawlessly. Face unlock is fast (albeit not as secure as a fingerprint because it only uses the regular camera, unlike on the iPhone). The fingerprint reader has yet to fail to recognize my finger, and it’s faster than the one on my old OnePlus. The phone feels snappier than my old one, particularly when running certain apps that slowed down my old phone (Instacart, for example).The screen is a beauty–coming from a 60Hz screen, 90Hz is a noticeable upgrade and feels buttery smooth. It’s bright enough to use easily in direct sunlight.The camera is very good, from what I can tell. Definitely way better than my old phone’s. I haven’t taken many night or low-light shots yet, but everything else has come out looking great.I know the Pixel 6 was glitchy and, in some cases, got buggier as time went on. Fingers crossed this won’t happen with the 7, but so far so good.Overall, I can’t believe the amount of stuff the phone has to offer for the price, particularly with the $100 gift card pre-order offer. It’s a flagship phone for a mid-tier price. I was considering getting an iPhone 13, but opted for the Pixel 7 because of the lower price. I’m glad I made that choice, as that extra $$$ comes in handy these days.Edit to add that the battery life is good, but not great. It lasts through a whole day of moderate to heavy use and has about 20% left at the end of the day.

    Good Value

    Waited to make this review till I had a reasonable time period of use behind me. I purchased this phone to replace a near four year old one and I have not been disappointed since. Key positives for me thus far -1. Best battery life of any phone I have ever owned. A full day is normal with moderate use (I only charge up to 80% as well). I can probably get 2 days of use with light use.2. Camera is very good. I am not a photophile by an means but the picture quality, colour depth, etc are all quite exceptional. There are also useful pic edit tools available via Google that makes editing easy.3. Despite not having the flagship Snapdragon chip like all my previous handsets I am not noticing any lag or performance issues. The phone is responsive and quite fast.4. The speech recorder to text function has bee na godsend in a few meetings I have been in and needed notes done. Works very wellI have not activated the face recognition feature as I never liked it as a security access so I can’t speak to it but the underscreen fingerprint sensor works well. I had to remove the tempered glass protector for it to work well though.At the price paid I am happy with the phone.

    How could Google go this wrong?

    I previously had the Google Pixel 3XL and loved it. I constantly gushed about how great their phones were. So how, in just a couple years, has Google managed to completely screw up a good thing?The first issue, which seems to be problematic for many users, is the fingerprint sensor. It used to be on the back of the phone and worked flawlessly. Someone decided to put it on the front screen and it doesn’t work at all. The phone rarely to never recognizes that I have even picked it up – so I need to hit the power button just to get my sign on screen. Once there it gives me the fingerprint sensor. I touch it. It recognizes the touch ( I can feel the phone vibrate), but it will NOT unlock. I touch it again. Nada. AGAIN. Still NOTHING. After trying the sensor at least 3 times (getting the vibration each time) it then simply gives me a PIN screen and then I need to manually enter my PIN (with my old phone I would already be browsing the internet or speaking to whomever I was calling). Once I have the screen open, the active edge is gone, so I can no longer squeeze the phone and request to call someone. I set up the voice command “Google assistant” to help shorten the frustration. I give the command “Hey Google” and then have to wait for the assistant. When it finally responds and I give my command, it tells me it cannot find that person in my contacts (even though they are there). So then I have to fiddle with that. By the time I deal with all of this and get a call through, I would have already had a conversation and hung up with my 3XL. Yes, I have adjusted the sensitivity settings. Additionally, when I am browsing websites, I have to repeatedly touch links, commands, etc. You can tell that the phone is recognizing the touch (by either vibration or it highlights whatever I am clicking on), but it doesn’t “launch” anything (for lack of proper terminology). So, I end up sitting on a page, repeatedly trying to click on things to open it, all to no avail. By the time I fight the fingerprint sensor and manage to get to a website, it’s nearly impossible to navigate the website. It also takes longer for pages to open or respond (whether I am on wi-fi or data). The extra time it takes to do the simplest tasks is absolutely maddening.I also set up the face recognition so that I could just skip the darn fingerprint sensor, but that works maybe 10-20% of the time (if I am lucky).Scrolling between windows was also nearly impossible. Just like the fingerprint sensor, it rarely to never recognized my attempts to slide up to scroll my windows/pages. Most of the time it wouldn’t recognize the request to scroll. I finally found a setting that gave me a “three button navigation” (back arrow, home button and to scroll windows). I can’t say I love it, but at least I can navigate.It has multiple other glitches that make me crazy. I was listening to Pandora and closed it. The music continued to play. I tried mutiple way to close it. I ended up closing ALL windows (even though I didn’t want to and shouldn’t have had to) and the music was still playing. WTH?! I couldn’t find a way to turn it off. I finally told Google Assistant to “Close Pandora!” and it finally did. These are just a couple of issues, I’ve only had the phone for a couple of days so I suspect my list will grow longer each day. My dogs hate the phone more than I do because I spend most of my day yelling and cursing at my phone while my dogs run for cover. I’ve seriously come close to pitching this thing across the room.I was the biggest Google phone fan already, so this should have been a slam dunk – but Google laid an egg with this one. If you’re listening Google, here is a suggestion; “If it ain’t broke – don’t fix it.”****Adding more as I find more.I’m also finding it impossible to set a different notification sound for email and text messages. Why, for the love of God, would anyone from Google feel the need to do that? This is a major frustration for me. I don’t want ONE notification sound for ALL of my alerts.Opening pages takes longer than my old 3XL as well. My new.phone has twice the memory, so it’s certainly not that.Everything with this phone takes twice as long to accomplish with twice the frustration.I also use Google’s texting app (which I had on my 3XL as well). Now, on my 7, if you accidentally archive a chat, the “un-do” button at the bottom has disappeared and takes many more steps to retrieve it. If it sounds like I am venting all of my frustrations with Google, you would be correct. I’m hoping someone from Google reads this review, takes it to a developers meeting and revisits these poor decisions. Until then, I’ll be waiting for updates to resolve these issues and will update my review accordingly.

    Great phone and cheap price!!!

    My 1-month review: If you are like me and watched a lot of tech reviews and read a lot of articles, then you probably already know this is a great phone for the price point. Truth be told, I was very skeptical of this phone because I saw a lot of reviews on the Pixel 6 mentioning that there were a lot of software bugs that made everyday use really inconvenient. However, with the Pixel 7, so far, I haven’t had too many issues with it besides initially, not being aware that you need very specific charging cables and blocks for it to actually charge. If you want tech video, you should already know this but the camera quality is AMAZING, though, it does sometimes struggle with low-light shots. The face and fingerprint unlock works great, though, this might change for you if you decide to get a screen protector. I am also a big fan of some of the new features such as live transcription during a phone call, auto-transcription for voicemails, live translation, and auto-ID songs. Just an FYI for people considering this phone, you can purchase this phone via the Google store, however, the return policy is 15 days compared to Amazon’s return policy of 30 days.Fair warning: The package ONLY comes with the phone and USB-C charger. You will need to buy the charging block separately. Also, only certain charging cables/charging blocks work with this phone, which is kind of annoying. Don’t be like me! When I first got the phone, I thought I had a faulty phone because it won’t charge so I had to temporarily use a USB-C laptop charger until the charging block came.

    First pixel, but not my last…

    I love my pixel. I was in the Android world long before I got this phone but this experience tops it all. Don’t be fooled thinking that this phone is perfect, because it is far from it and I’ll try to break down the pros and cons:Pros:-Android experience: no bloatware and updates directly from Google-Camera: the camera unit itself might not be the most powerful in terms of hardware, but the post-processing software that google has implemented makes it one of the best in the game.-Battery life: The phone learns from your usage habits and adapts the battery’s performance to adjust to your needs. The phone felt like it lacked the power the first couple of weeks, but now I get a day’s use easily.-Looks: The finish on the back is a fingerprint magnet, but you can’t deny that it looks amazing. The camera bump helps protect the back from scratches (I mean at least in the 5 seconds that you’ll have it out of the case for cleaning)Cons:-Fingerprint reader: No matter how you register the fingerprint, it will fail to recognize it in a sunny day or when you are in the dark. I’ve tried to register 2 or 3 times in different lighting conditions, but the sensor itself is lacking in recognition capabilities.-Screen: 90Hz is enough for the untrained eye, but I just wish the max brightness was a bit higher.-Facial recognition: I wish the phone was improved in the face unlock area. I mean if you are not going to use a good fingerprint reader, might as well add more facial reading capabilities or add IR sensors to make unlocking the phone more secure.Take this in consideration when buying and if the drawbacks are not a deal-breaker for you, you won’t regret getting this pixel.

    Pixel Phones are Still King but Mine Had Flaws

    As a longtime user of Pixel phones, I can’t help but keep coming back to them even when I try a different phone, except this time.While the Pixel 7 continues to be one of the best value options on the market, my Pixel arrived with a faint but noticeable screen defect in which there were three shadow-like gray areas in the top, middle, and bottom portions of the screen that were very noticeable on bright backgrounds. This annoyed me when scrolling through apps or webpages and seeing text fade through these “gray zones” that I couldn’t make go away- and this was from a brand new unit that I only had for a few days. Aside from my screen defect, the Pixel 7 was still a great phone.When it comes to the software experience, the clean Android experience is still one of the best that you can get, in addition to also being the first to get new Android updates as they roll out. The color themes that you can choose based on your wallpaper adds another level to customization, and you can even apply these colors to some app icons as well. The software is smooth, and I haven’t had any of the software bugs that some others have had. However, what really makes the Pixel experience great are some of the features you can’t get on other Android phones such as Google’s “screen call”, “hold for me”, photo unblur, and magic erase options. My favorite of these is definitely screen call, as when enabled you can have the Pixel automatically answer the call for you and give you a transcript based on the call to let you know whether you should pick up or not in case it is spam. I get a lot of Spam calls personally, so this has saved me the hassle of having to take a lot of unnecessary calls. When it comes to the photo modes, the magic eraser works great when there isn’t too much going on, but the photo unblur ability isn’t that great. I found that even photos that are only slightly blurred sometimes just get added sharpness from this mode, but without actually unblurring the parts of the photo I needed. My overall favorite part of the default android experience though, is the Google toolbar on the bottom of your homepage. While on the Pixel this bar is not removable, I found it to be the best implementation out of any android phone as it not only allows you to search Google whenever you need, but it also searches your device for apps, videos, and more that might be stored on it. Think of it as an all-in-one search that not only searches the web, but searches your device as well as giving you recommendations based on your recently used apps.Aside from software, the main reason why I have always used Pixel phones is the camera. While the Pixel 7 does have some improvements to the larger sensor, all of the magic still happens on the software processing side. Even photos that may not look like they will be good before pressing the shutter, will look like a professional photo as soon as it is captured and finished processing. This is what the Pixel does best. No matter what phone I use, whether Android-wise or iPhone, the photos produced by the Pixel series are still the best I’ve ever seen and used. Photos just pop with a well balanced blend of saturation, color, lighting, and sharpness that looks natural to real life. Selfies are the same as well. Despite the front selfie camera being a lower megapixel camera compared to the rear sensor, it still produces great photos and the portrait mode is one of the best on a smartphone. However, while the Pixel 7 captures great photos, it still needs some work on the video side. Videos are an improvement over previous generations, but videos still need a lot of light to look good. When in a well-lit room or outside on a sunny day, the videos are vivid, detailed, clear, and sharp, but as soon as the lights start to dim, the videos will return to a noisy mess. For videos, the iPhone still remains supreme, in my opinion, but the next gen Pixel just might close the gap on the video side.When it comes to battery life, it is a bit of a mixed bag. The Pixel 7 had very mediocre battery life in the first day or two that I had it, with it not lasting more than 4-5 hours on a full charge for me. However, by day 3, the battery life nearly doubled as the adaptive battery feature noticed the apps I was using and optimized itself for a better experience. The phone charges at an average rate and still doesn’t charge very fast over wired or wireless chargers, but it is still good enough to fully charge it in a bit over an hour when plugged in directly.When it comes to performance, the Tensor 2 is a powerhouse, but it still doesn’t even come close to the newer Snapdragon Flagship chips from the last couple of years. Games can still be a bit stuttery and laggy at times, and you may have to lower some settings for a smooth experience. However, it is still a very capable chip and I would still say it is 2nd best after the Snapdragon.The display is something that is still a mixed bag as although I received a defective unit with my “gray zones”, the OLED panel used on the non-Pro variants still continues to be much lower quality than the LTPO panels used on the Pro version. While the refresh rate can still go up to 90Hz and is a significant improvement over 60Hz panels, my primary complaint is actually about the fact that the brightness is significantly lower even at max levels and has way more noticeable color shifting when tilting the phone screen to the sides. While it is an OLED panel that still delivers vibrant colors and rich blacks, I just wish it had at least a 1st gen LTPO panel or a higher quality AMOLED than what is being used. While these complaints may seem unwarranted because my display was defective, this was an issue with the Pixel 6 as well when it came to using a lower quality panel compared to the Pro. As someone who has also used the A-series of Pixel phones, the displays on those budget options are nearly identical in quality to the Pixel 7, just with a faster refresh rate on 7 itself.Overall, while the phone itself is still the best value for the money, I was disappointed that my brand new unit had such a big flaw with the display. I’ve never had this issue with Pixel phones before and it really impacted my opinion of Google’s quality for the time being. Aside from that, I still highly recommend this phone to those who want a nearly full flagship phone experience but without spending more than is needed. In terms of photos and software, it is the best there is, but for gaming, productivity, and videos, it still needs some improvements.

    Amazon is excellent, Google customer service not so much.

    Update 2/19/23. So last update Amazon graciously gave me a very fair partial refund even though it was outside the 2 month window. (I owned the phone for 4 mos and 2 days) And I have sent the pixel 7 back to them. Google customer service continues to be abysmal. Overall phone was not better than pixel 2 for me, but aside from all my issues still a decent value and I still like Pixel phones better than the competition. Read on if you desire to see my trials and tribulations with the Pixel 7. So I finally got around to working through the warranty process (for cracked rear camera lens) with Google and was put in touch with a local ubreakit/wefixit shop who promptly told me it wasn’t covered(incidental damage). I was quoted $249 to repair. I declined and contacted Amazon again who proceeded to offer me a very fair partial refund which I accepted and sent the phone back. I am back to using my pixel 2 which still works better for me, while I regroup and figure out what is next. Thanks Amazon you are absolutely fantastic you didn’t have to make this right and you did, so thanks, and if you make a smartphone I would love to buy it. Google customer service your lucky I still like the pixel because you are absolutely atrocious to work with.Update 1/14/23 on the plus side it appears that the USB c port issues were software related, it stopped having issues after the last update. So that is a win.I contacted Amazon about the broken camera lens it appears this is a common issue on Pixel 7s due to a manufacturing error in producing the glass. Apparently they shatter due to internal stress. Amazon told me that they couldn’t help me because it was outside the 2 month return window. But it has a one year warranty by Google. I reached out to Google for the warranty claim and I received an email from a company lawyer saying if I was sueing them about the issue they have received my information and would email me back. I haven’t heard anything since. I imagine I will have to contact them again. But only the wide angle camera is affected and I don’t use that. So overall I am actually pretty happy with this phone. And now that the USB c port works again it does everything I need. I hear pixel 8 is smaller so will see when that one comes out. Adding a star because everything I care about works now. Google customer service sucks, but still wouldn’t pay $1200 for a comparable iphone or Samsung.Update 12/3/22I have started having issues with the USB C port it doesn’t grab the cable tightly and causes issues with Android auto and often if I attempt to charge by cable it will appear to be charging and than won’t. I have cleaned it out, but no obvious debris. I bought this first day available and received it October 17, so not quite two months. I have worked around this using a wireless charger but still data xfer and android auto are a problem.Additionally I bought and use a Spigen case and screen protector, but I pulled it out of my pocket and found the glass shattered above the camera lens. I am guessing that I leaned against something with it in my pocket but I didn’t drop it or violate it in an obvious manner. I definitely need a phone that I can carry in my pocket and that is adequately protected with a case and screen protector although a nice phone maybe not durable enough for me. Never had an issue with pixel 2 on the durability front.Fortunately both the camera and phone still work but definitely not tracking for another four year performance.Original review -I have been using this phone for a little over a month. I upgraded from a pixel 2.Pros- Good battery life, updates and is supported for the next 3 years.Cons-Significantly larger than pixel 2, fingerprint scanner is almost unusable.There is a lot of reviews on the cameras and how great they are, I’m sure they are excellent for my uses the pixel 2 was more than adequate and this one is also more than adequate.The fingerprint reader is a problem, the pixel 2 worked almost flawlessly for the 4 years I used it every day. The pixel 7 might work 2 out of 10 times maybe 1 out of ten, it is so inconsistent that I really can’t use it for biometric authentication. I have read the fixes and troubleshooting, none of it really works, I’m not going to carry a fingerprint wetter around with me.I think a lot of the things that drove me to upgrade, were do to Google refusing to support the Pixel 2 it received its last update at the end of 2020 and it started a few months ago to experience buggy performance with connectivity and the GPS, with no real fixes due to being two revs behind on Android.For me the fingerprint scanner and size combined with a brand new pixel 2, makes it a better phone than the pixel 7. Unfortunately I can’t go back in time and can only hope that in four years pixel 12 is smaller and has a functional fingerprint scanner.The 7 is a good phone and at $500 it is an excellent value. They certainly have upgraded the cameras and the tensor system works well. I certainly am glad I went this route over the other options.I just think there is a point where some of the driving features, cameras, operating systems, weird swipe modes etc are really not noticeably better and drive up cost and size and lead to removal of things I would like such as a stand alone fingerprint scanner and 3.5 mm jack. Hope Google reads this

    Faster than my Pixel 4a5G – HATE the front screen fingerprint scanner

    I was forced to buy a new phone after my Pixel 4a5G suddenly, inexplicably died. The Pixel 7 was my logical choice (I could absolutely not justify spending nearly twice as much for the 7 Pro model!!!)AMAZON DELIVERED THE NEW PHONE IN LESS THAN 10 HOURS!!!!! They have an amazing system in place. What an excellent item to have available for delivery THAT quickly! When you have no cell phone – you feel completely lost! VERY much appreciated.The fingerprint scanner on my 5a5G is on the REAR, where it is an instant, no-brainer to simply touch it as you pick up the phone. It was also 100% accurate and WORKED EVERY TIME. Economics probably dictated that Google remove the rear scanner and install that functionality into the front screen instead. Even before I installed the excellent glass screen protector on my Pixel 7 it was quite obvious that it was not as good as that on my 4a5G. After I installed the protector the reliability became VERY poor. Sure, there are some protectors that are supposedly ‘classified’ to somehow be better qualified to work with front scanners…but I doubt it. I have found though that even with the protector installed, there is a very specific orientation and pressure that will correctly unlock the phone within two tries about 80-90% of the time. Good enough I guess.Also, I’m also not convinced that the Pixel phone screen needed to be made taller and narrower. I think I like the screen ratio of the 4a5G better.The Pixel 7 does appear to be significantly faster & more responsive than my 4a5G.NOTE:Nothing at all against the Pixel 7 hardware; Google’s software folks do a fantastic job of making it easy to transition to a new Pixel phone – IF YOUR PREVIOUS PHONE IS STILL WORKING – If your old phone is dead, like mine was – not so much! Though the transition software functionality is definitely in place – it is not well stated or described at all! It would go a VERY long way if Google would simply put up on the new phone’s screen a clear, precise, and in layman’s terms, an explanation that ‘EVEN IF YOUR PREVIOUS PHONE IS DEAD/UNAVAILABLE DATA/SETTINGS CAN BE RESTORED FROM THE CLOUD’ and provide details of the restoration process from Google’s cloud backup of your previous phone (assuming that feature was left turned on when the user originally purchased that).Google needs to take a close look at their instructions. Things that are obvious and self-explanatory to folks that write them and/or just deal with them on a regular basis doesn’t mean they will be clear to many other people.I had previously been EXTREMELY impressed a couple years ago when transitioning from my old Huawei phone to the Pixel 4a5g. The Huawei was still in working order and the transition process was incredibly easy and thorough. Google seems to have spent an incredible amount of time and effort into that situation/process … but skimped on the details of other scenarios. Room for improvement.

    Lots of limitations

    The Pixel 7 runs Android 13 and has a 5 year software update policy. This is great. However, the good things end there.1. T-Mobile wi-fi calling in the US does not work at all. If left enabled (the default setting), and the phone is connected to wi-fi, incoming calls go straight to voicemail, and SMS messages are not received. In the rare occasion that the phone does ring for an incoming call, you have one way audio until wi-fi is turned off. This makes this phone unsuitable as a phone where the signal is weak. T-mobile as well as google support went though several options, without any resolution yet. Both our Pixel 7s have the exact same issue. Web searches tell me that people have had similar issues on Pixel 6 for a year now, without any resolution as well. The same SIMs work fine when inserted into Oneplus phones on the same wi-fi network. Even if the oneplus cannot connect to wi-fi calling for any reason, calls are still routed over VOLTE. So, this is a pixel specific issue. Google support has taken a bug report for this, and says it is a T-mobile issue. Though there is also an 18+ month old bug on the one way audio on the T-mobile wi-fi calling on the pixel 6 as well, with lots of comments and no fix.2. You will need to buy all new chargers as many existing chargers do not work with the pixel 7. I do not expect fast charging speeds with non-USB PD charger. However, the issue is that chargers will not charge the pixel 7 at all. For Example: Oneplus dash chargers, both the home and car variety will not charge the pixel 7 at all. Neither will Apple iPad 10W/2A chargers charge the phone, or the charger bundled with a Roku Ultra. Qualcomm QC 3.0 compatible chargers are also finiky at times. But very old Nokia Lumia chargers work well with a microUSB to USB-C adapter. Newer 20W+ USB-C PD chargers do also work and charge the phone well. I have even turned off the adaptive charging and adaptive battery in the phone battery settings with the same results. So, be prepared to buy all new chargers even though you may have several USB-C chargers in the house.3. The pixel7 phone is also quite heavy compared to my old Oneplus which is about the same size.4. The fingerprint sensor is a hit or a miss as well. On my wife’s phone, my fingerprint registered and continued to work from the very first time. On my phone, I had to delete and register my fingerprint more than 20 times before it worked 90+% of the time. Both phones are running the same software and have the same screen protector. And I registered my same finger. Screen protector mode is on in settings as well. So, it looks like on some pixel 7s, the fingerprint sensor is less sensitive than others.5. The pixel 7 also lacks a hall sensor. So, magnetic flip covers will not turn off the display when closed, and turn on the display when opened. However, with the pixel supporting an always on display as well as lift and touch to turn on the display, this is not a big issue. Just something to be aware of.6. The earthquake alerts setting seems to be missing on one of our two pixels. And that phone did not alert us before the last quake as well. So, the earthquake alerts are not working on that pixel 7. Working with google support, a factory reset also did not help. Google support says the phone is faulty and needs to be replaced. Amazon was willing to refund the phone, but not replace it. Exploring other options with google for now since I got the phones at a promotional price, and have a few months to return. Besides, I find it hard to believe that this is a hardware issue. UPDATE: Google has fixed this issue with the Nov 2022 play services update.7. On wi-fi 6 networks, occasionally we get very low download speeds – less than 10Mbps. Other devices on the same wi-fi network have no issues. The network is 5GHz only. Several reports of this on the Pixel 6. So, this issue exists on the pixel 7 as well. Workaround is to turn off wi-fi and turn it back on.The main issue here is the wi-fi calling. An unlocked phone – US model ought to work with wi-fi calling on one of the three major carriers out of the box. I do not get a signal at work, or in many buildings I frequent. However, they all have wi-fi. So, without wi-fi calling, this phone cannot be used as a phone.

    Very Happy with the Phone

    In retrospect I would have gotten the Pro as I would like a bigger screen. The Camara lens broke. I’ve dropped phones before, but the lens never broke. Lens seems to work fine, even with the crack. Besides that I am very happy with the phone.

    So far, so good

    I didn’t want this phone. My Pixel5 died rather suddenly (likely bc I’d stated to someone aloud how much I liked it and wanted to keep it as long as possible) and I was forced to replace it. I read reviews on new Pixel phones even when I’m not planning to upgrade what I have so I was aware that the 7 still had some of the same annoying bugs as the 6 and was more or less prepared to be annoyed with this phone.So far, it’s been fine. It’s big. I don’t really need the extra screen size but whatever. I miss the dedicated fingerprint reader on the back of my 5 so much. It was perfect. It worked every time and was located right where your index finger rests anyway.I dislike screen based readers (I don’t like the one on my Samsung tablet either). And I was prepared to hate this one given the issues people have reported.It’s actually fine, if you DON’T use a screen protector. I didn’t bother with one on my 5 (Caseology cases have a nice lip on them that keeps the screen off most surfaces and I’m not generally hard on my phones) and wouldn’t have on this one except I couldn’t get a Caseology case for it fast enough and this phone is SLICK and I don’t mean visually (though I suppose it’s that, too, but I have it in a case so who cares?) there is literally NO traction at all when holding this thing. It’s downright slippery and will migrate down any surface you set it on that’s not flat. So, I feared I’d end up scratching the thing before I could get proper protection for it and got some screen protectors for it.Fingerprint reader became almost instantly unusable and that didn’t really improve even after a few weeks. I like using biometrics for lots of apps so I ended up removing the screen protector and it’s fine again. It still only likes the inside edge of my left thumb but will read that very consistently so I’m fine with it.Still annoyed I had to replace my 5 even if it was 2 years old, but this hasn’t been as annoying as I feared. That said, jury is still out on long-term stability and function.I’m firmly on Team Pixel (I had an original Pixel XL first) and likely will be as long as Google doesn’t royally mess something up, but it’s mostly because I love the pure, unadulterated Android OS experience and getting updates quickly, etc. I feel like any Pixel phone is a good choice for that reason alone.

    Great camera, surrounded by beta hardware… not ready for prime time.

    I’ve been in the Apple eco system since iPhone 1, but I’m also an avid *NIX user so a few years back I made the leap to Pixel (and specifically Pixel 7 last year). The Pixel 7 is a phone with lots of potential, but botched by poor execution of the basics. Here are some pro’s and con’s:Pro: Rapid software updates from Google. You get in front of the line of other Android phones.Con: Software is BUGGY. i.e., phone rings and the answer button disappears?! keeps ringing until the call ends with no way to answer it… WTH.Pro: Great camera. You get a flagship-worthy camera with great night shots..Con: Cinematic video/bokeh is still far behind Apple.Pro: Tensor flow… lots of potential on the new TPU.Con: Apple’s Bionic processor still comes up around 2x faster.Pro: Always-on display with better refresh rates.Con: Pain to use… notifications are wonky when display is always-on and don’t show up (Android bug)… and you won’t know (for example) when an email or text comes in when the display is always on… I just shut it off the always-on so I can get my notifications correctly/normally. poor execution/poorly thought out.Con: BATTERY/charging. This is the BIGGEST botch job on this phone. Even when you have a charger in hand, chances are it wont charge. Lots of BS workaround posted online like “cleaning the plug”, using a different cable, patching the OS, hard starting, factory reset, turning off adaptive charging, etc… it won’t charge. The phone goes into a mode that it acknowledges its connected to a charger but will refuse to charge. Be it USB-C PD, USB2, USB1, wireless charging, whatever. If you’re on travel, THIS IS THE WRONG PHONE TO BRING WITH YOU! Trust me on this. You will thank me later by following this advice.More on the battery: the charger is a proprietary charging circuit from Huawei I think, and it has bugs… lots of them. So far, I don’t think its thermal… and its definitely not mechanical. About 20% of the time, I wake up in the morning and pick my phone thats been in the charger all night to see it only has 5-10% after charging all night… no reason given. Next day, its fine.Even more on the battery: so… Android/Pixel does have a battery saver mode… sounds great! This is a good emergency countermeasure for a broken charge circuit, right? So you switch on Power Saver… then you plug into the charger (hoping to reduce usage if the charging fails)… but what happens is that Android now says “Connected, Not Charging” and since its “connected” it shuts off the power saver!!!! Yes… if that sounds ridiculous… thats because it is… So now your phone is not charging *AND* its burning through the battery twice as fast! If you had 5-6% on your phone, and you plug it in, your guaranteed to drain out the phone even faster!The claim that this phone can work 72 hours is almost laughable, and I would guess eventually legally actionable. 8-10 hours is a more realistic target.I can’t stress the battery issue enough… this phone is NOT ready for prime time because of this. The PIxel 8 should be considered as a hardware patch for this broken component, if they manage to fix it.Last bits of advice:The optical fingerprint sensor doesn’t work. It enrolls fingers most of the time… but then they won’t match. False-negative / FNIR is nearly 100%. If you add a finger, you can re-enroll the same finger again and the system won’t stop you… because it can’t match the first enrollment encounter to the second… LOL…. Some people I know have enrolled the same finger 4 times (limit of android) just to make that finger a bit more matchable. Apparently the Pixel 8 will have the Qualcomm piezoelectric scanner built in, which should be better… but the Pixel 7 fingerprint scanner is not usable.Face recognition is also beta-level software, and not well supported in the OS… so its nice to have… but high error rates, and mostly unsupported by various applications. I can’t estimate how bad FNIR is because its so poorly and inconsistently supported across the platform.My advice to Google: when the pixel 8 is released, I suggest making it a free swap-upgrade for Pixel 7 owners as an apology … and get the 7’s back and move them in a nice landfill somewhere. Google has been making phones for 14 years now… these rookie mistakes shouldn’t be happening.

    Good phone. Would have been a better value if I had been able to wait a month or two.

    So far, I’ve had OnePlus phones (last was a 7pro), a cheap Samsung and this one. The Pixel has a better UI to it and I like it almost as much as the One Plus 7pro I had. I will never get another cheap Samsung again. The UI was clearly a step down from the OnePlus and the Pixel 7. Yeah, it’s a cheaper phone and performance, camera, etc. wasn’t as good, but the UI was awful. Can’t help but extrapolate that to the whole Samsung line. Considering how expensive their flagship phones are, why try one if the UI on the cheap ones suck.The Pixel UI has been easy to use and easier to learn the quirks than the OnePlus and a lot easier than the Samsung. If I had to pick one word to describe learning the UI, I’d say quick. It went quick. Features on the cheap Samsung were often harder to find and sometimes hard to get set the way I wanted them.The Pixel’s camera is better than the OnePlus 7pro (known trade off) and way ahead of the cheap Samsung as would be expected. The camera is also easy to use so far. I haven’t found much in the way of complex settings to tweak. Nice zoom, but not spectacular. Color is great and focus works pretty well. Pixel count is high enough that it kind of makes up for the Nice but not spectacular zoom. With it zoomed in to max it’s relatively easy to crop down to the precise thing you want without losing so much detail everything starts looking fuzzy.Have not had the drop outs and coverage issues I had with both the OnePlus and Samsung. Reception is solid and the blue tooth range is great. Leaving the phone sit, I can get at least 40 feet away with a couple walls in between before my wireless earbuds (BBTek) start to loose the signal.Overall, I rate it as a great value compared to the latest flagship phones. If you’re thinking about the latest flagship but balking at the cost, the Pixel 7 is a great alternative. Google is an amoral entity and possibly somewhat evil, but compared to something that’s ultimately subject to the whims of the Chinese government (Oppo, OnePlus, etc.) and a crappy UI on the Samsung, I’ll go with them for now.

    It’s a good phone

    It’s a good phone for the price. I don’t go and spend a lot of money on phones ($thousand or more$). I search for the more so bargain phones. This one fit the bill.

    Great Hardware, Innovative Software, Buggy Mess

    I love several of the new software features like the photo editing and call screening. The hardware is powerful and capable of everything I throw at it. However, the fingerprint reader doesn’t work half the time, battery life is usually good but some days it just drains like nobody’s business despite similar day to day use, and there are a handful of glitches that just ruin the experience. Had this phone for about 9 months and I’m buying a competing product to replace it despite normally running a phone till it’s dead.

    CAVEAT EMPTOR for those just wishing to text, call & shoot pictures

    The reviews for the Google Pixel 7 are excellent and a wide number of highly respective sources including Wirecutter at The NYTs recommended it as the best Android hands down in 2022. Despite all sorts of conflicted feelings about Google and AI given my desire not to be spied on or commodified, I decided the great price Amazon offered when I made the purchase was incentive enough to move from an aging Motorola to this phone.Mind you, the transfer of data could not have been easier. Online resources are amazing in the number of tutorials you can follow to learn how to use your device.HOWEVER, I find that it is nigh impossible to use the phone without having Google nudge, record, transcribe and watch you even when you opt out of using Google Assistant.A week after setting up the phone, I freaked out when a transcript unrolled before my eyes, documenting everything an automated system was asking me to say or punch on my keypad during a call I had just placed. The mike light was on. After researching the issue online, I tried disabling Direct My Call which was a feat. I disconnected the mike from my Phone app (which unaffiliated online tech websites claim only needs to be connected to the Phone app if I wished to use the Assistant) and ultimately caved when my Phone kept telling me in pop-ups that I have to have the mike connected to the phone. As a result, I could not make a call until nearly 2 1/2 hours when a Google rep walked me through steps to resolve the issue, including resetting permissions for all apps.The plus? You CAN actually interact with Google agents regarding their products and get results.The minus? An utter lack of privacy. Google recommends keeping Google Assistant on, especially for those who enjoy playing with all the nifty bells and whistles that arrive with each new update. I prefer opting out.Regarding the physical attributes of the phone, please note it is pretty and sleek and heavy. It feels fragile and does not take kindly to plastic screen protectors (mine is VERY noticeable and not precisely scaled to the size of the glass screen). The elegant, compostable sleeve I bought to protect the back of the phone emphasizes what I consider a design flaw: the power button does not project enough. Pressing the volume and power button simultaneously is nearly impossible in order to take a screenshot [vs. turning off the phone, contrary to some online tutorials]. I need to remove the sleeve for that action.Full disclosure: this review has been edited once and its author is new to Pixels. I will edit it again in a few months should familiarity breed contentment.

    Peak Android Experience

    I’ve been using Pixel 7 since November and have to say this is a quality device. I use this for nearly everything and would describe myself as a power user. I game on this (CoD Mobile/Apex/Supercell games/Among Us/Ninja Turtles/etc..) and they have all worked great for me so far, no issues. I hadn’t been much of a mobile gamer for a while but playing on this has re-ignited that and made it enjoyable again. The pictures are amazing and the smart features/overall aesthetic of android 13 are as good as they’ve ever been.I use this thing for playing music and movies they all work great, casting to other devices is seamless (especially for youtube and apps that support it) and bluetooth has never had a single issue. It works great with Android auto (where you get to see just how amazing google assistant can be), google pay and wallet. I also have my full work profile setup and automated to turn on during the workday as well as a bedtime routine with customized DnD. The now playing feature showing what’s playing around you even while locked is amazing. I don’t see myself ever going back to another phone.The fingerprint scanner is not as good as previous versions and the battery life leave some to be desired. Other than that I have zero complaints about this thing.

    Problemas de red y llamadas

    En una semana de uso solo puedo decir que es una máquina increíble el Pixel 7, pero hay un detalle que no lo deja ser un teléfono perfecto, cuando quiero hacer llamadas se cortan o simplemente no las puedo hacer, igualmente cuando me llaman no puedo recibirlas y se van a buzón. Es una pena que Google no pueda corregir esta falla.

    Wonderful phone with great battery life and good wireless fast charging

    I had a pixel 5 I bought new in 2020 and it was stolen in early July of this year 2023. Google had even replaced the battery for free after the phone was out of warranty because it swelled and was failing. Also the pixel 5’s were the last to have unlimited photo storage. I knew I wanted another pixel to replace my stolen one. I first bought a pixel 7a because it had just came out in June. The phone charged wirelessly very slow and didn’t seem to have good battery life even compared to my 5. I decided to return it well within the return window from best buy and was charged a 50 dollar restock fee. I’ll never buy from them again. So I bought the pixel 7 from Amazon and I have zero regrets. It charges quickly wireless and I love the phone. It has better battery life than my 5, takes great pictures and the screen is a bit larger. I would recommend this phone.

    Poor phone call audio, connectivity

    I really, really, really tried to like the Pixel 7. Both my wife and I got Pixel 7s because of Google’s update promise, the cameras, the Google apps, etc. Got off to a rocky start when our phones were stuck on the Nov 2022 update and we were into Feb.The thing that bugged me most about the phone, though, was the call audio. It’s the worst call audio of any cell phone that I have owned. The problem was most noticeable when talking to someone on another Pixel 7 (like my wife has). The audio was distorted, with a sibilant hiss in the high frequencies. The microphone is extremely sensitive–my wife re-gripping the phone, swapping hands, changing her position while sitting down, etc would distort the audio. I was constantly having to ask her to repeat herself.The problem wasn’t limited to the Pixel 7s, but also caused issues when talking to people on other cell phones and land-lines. Multiple people told me (unsolicited) that call audio from me was poor on their end.Google had put out a ‘Clear Calling’ update in Dec (which our phones hadn’t gotten since we were stuck on the Nov updates). We were hoping that would clear up the audio issues. We finally got the update in Feb, but ‘Clear Calling’ didn’t fix the issues. I’ll probably return the Pixel and try another manufacturer.UPDATE: I returned the Pixel 7, and got a Samsung S22+, and have had no audio issues at all talking to my wife on her Pixel 7, which she kept. Driving to work, the Pixel would drop from 5G to 4G LTE in one area and the S22+ stays in 5G (at 3-bars out of 5).

    No wall charger included

    So when to list says charging cable it literally means the charging cable only. IT DOESN’T COME WITH THE WALL CHARGER. So you have to buy the wireless charger or the wall charger for c-type cable separately.I also miss phones having a headphone jack.Haven’t gotten use to many of the new features on the android 13, seems like a steep learning curve here.The fingerprint sensor is not as seamless as other devices I have used.Otherwise camer is good. Phone runs well. Great battery life.

    Quality Construction and Software

    Coming from the iPhone 7 Plus, this Pixel 7 was a huge upgrade in (almost) every way imaginable.The fingerprint reader gives me false negatives a lot. My iPhone never had this issue. The screen is tall and narrow compared to my iPhone, which makes it more annoying for watching YouTube videos.Despite these issues, I recommend this phone if you’re not going to be using it a lot. If I were an avid phone user (I’m not) I would pick something with a larger screen like the Pixel 8 Pro.As a side note, I would recommend this phone over the Samsung A54 because I have used Google’s Magic Eraser a lot to clean up my photos, and the Pixel looks nicer in my opinion.

    Defective Phone – Beware – Updated

    I spent two days trying to get this phone working with Tracfone Wireless. With new SIM card installed I could not get service. Tracfone sent another SIM, still no service. I finally went to Goggle tech support and found there is an issue with (Tracfone) Verizon and Pixel 7. This issue is being fixed but not until mid December.If you use Tracfone and or Verizon you will not get service signal.Update 12/6/22 – Today Pixel did a large update which fixed the issue of connecting to Verizon. Got good signal with Tracfone Verizon. I’ve updated the Star rating but not as good as it should be due to the initial inability to connect. Will follow up with reviews as I use this phone.Update 12/13/22 – No connection issues with usual good cell signal with Tracfone.This is turning out to be a great phone. Lots of features and across Goggle apps synchronization. Fantastic camera and flawless fingerprint access. Get a case and screen protector as it’s slippery.Why would you ever want an iPhone except to be a snob.

    Great value

    The phone is the most vanilla android phone you can get, the camera is great, guaranteed first round updates for 3 years. The Google processor is still early to the field though, it struggles with keeping tasks performing at their best abs drains the battery very quickly. You can’t beat it for the value, but I certainly wish the processor was as premium as the rest of the phone

    Not an impressive jump from a Pixel 3a

    After having used the Pixel 7 for a few weeks now, it hasn’t met my expectations coming from a Pixel 3a. The Pixel 7 is my third Pixel device and seems to lack a lot from previous jumps and the competition. Moving from the OG Pixel to the Pixel 3a was amazing; the finger printer reader worked great, the battery life was awesome, and the device just worked for about 4 years! The 7 seems quite weak in comparison with this latest upgrade. The fingerprint reader only works about 50% of the time even with the sensitively changed to compensate for a screen protector, the battery life isn’t great, and the camera, along with its features, leaves a lot to be desired when compared to something like an iPhone 14. I’ll keep the 7 for a while, but if the Pixel line doesn’t improve then I may have to look to an iPhone since the cost savings between the two devices doesn’t seem worth it. It feels like I should have just spent a few more hundred bucks and moved to the better-equipped iPhone.

    Great phone until it stopped working suddenly…

    After working hard in the Fall season, I finally treated myself to getting the Pixel 7. The phone was great, but it keep in mind when you first start using the phone, it’s gonna feel warmer than normal. Within a day or two, the throttling will stop because the phone will adjust to the needs that you’re giving it. Android 13 is buttery smooth, but you’re gonna see some glitches here and there. The display is also good, it can get plenty bright. One thing I don’t like is the color shift if you look at the phone from a certain angle. The battery life is good but could be better, this phone can last you all day if you’re using it lightly or moderately use. If you’re a heavy user, yeah this phone’s battery life ain’t for you. The cameras are class-leading. Great details all around, A+ Google HDR software processing… So, on Jan 8th, I was on YT, watching videos. My phone started to trip, so it reboot itself to correct itself. A few minutes later, I watched a bit of TV and came back to my phone. My phone was dead. Mind you, I still have a good amount of battery left. I tried to turn it on, but it won’t come on. I tried to hard factory reset it, but it won’t turn on. Pressed the power and volume buttons to get it into Recovery mode, but it won’t turn on. I even charged it, but it wasn’t charging. The phone just gave out. So, the Pixel 7 is being returned while I’m posting this review, on waiting refund as well. Overall, it’s not a bad phone. But be careful with the defective units out there. If you got a defective unit, take action immediately!

    No longer worth it

    2024 Update: Still using this phone, and it will be my last phone from Google. Never mind that the software experience has gone from bad to worse, it was not even eligible as a trade in for the Pixel 8 that directly replaced it. Then an update to the Pixel Camera app in November 2023 effectively broke its primary camera app for many users on all Pixel phones in hilarious ways (crashes on startup, can’t save photos, restarts phone, mistimed flash, etc.) despite months of 1-star reviews… Look for yourself on the Play Store! (An eventual update in January 2024 seemed to fix nothing.)Google Assistant works worse than ever. Notifications are late and only sometimes play a sound. Those cool calling features like Hold For Me rarely show up anymore in practice. Plus, the battery can no longer make it to the end of the day without having to charge with only medium use. If Google can’t be bothered with its own phones and the apps it makes for them, you probably shouldn’t either.Original Launch Review: Finally upgraded from a Pixel 3. Under-screen fingerprint reader is working much better than I expected, but still a design decision I disagree with strongly. Fingerprint (I should say thumbprint) unlocks are near instantaneous when they happen, but sometimes it does take a couple of tries. Multi-auth sessions (phone unlock + secure app unlock) do not usually take any longer than a dedicated fingerprint reader — at least so far.The actual device hardware is okay; the phone feels heavy and solid. The hard edge on the camera bump makes no sense to me, needlessly adding more areas for dust and lint to collect that feels unnatural and awkward in the hand. The official case does not solve this problem. Sound is well balanced for stereo but about what you expect without real front-facing speakers; there appears to be one speaker on the bottom-right edge of the device and another underscreen up top. Audio is too tinny to my taste for music, but I am impressed with that balance of sound from L to R between mismatched speaker types.Software-wise, the Pixel-to-Pixel transfer process was terrible, relative to recent experience with Samsung-to-Samsung. Some apps came through with their settings intact while others needed to be set up again from scratch or synced manually. A few old legacy apps I relied on were suddenly no longer supported despite using the same version of Android. System settings were a mess seconded only by another maze of broken menus for the Google Assistant. Scroll momentum felt actively bad on the device, although it was improved quite a bit by installing a ready software update. I expect this to continue to improve in time, although it again begs the question: Why didn’t someone try this before making a bunch of them?For $600 on the 128GB model this thing is a steal though, and I feel confident recommending it easily. I think Samsung’s doing a better job of maintaining consistency within their ecosystem, and Motorola is doing a better job at Android than Google, but for the hardware and camera you get here on a flagship device there is very little to complain about so long as you are comfortable waiting for Google to improve device performance and features via software updates.Would I rather see another Google-made device with a flush candy bar design, stereo front-facing speakers, and a dedicated fingerprint reader like my old Pixel 3? Definitely, take my money. But until that one shows up, this one will do just fine.

    Google pixel 7

    I purchased this phone and I think this phone has a lot of great potential going for it. My daily phone I use a lot is a pixel 4A and it’s useful it gets the job done the form factor is perfect for my hands. So after I got the pixel 7 for two days, I immediately liked it a lot the camera is awesome everything is smooth it runs fast but the more I held it it’s just to big.. I’m one with a pixel 4A where I can reach my thumb to pull down the notification easily. The pixel 7 you have to use two hands to pull down the notifications ?!!, I’m sure there is a option in the settings with one thumb functions but I didn’t find it.There is a lot of Pluses for the pixel 7 but I just think when you have your right thumb trying to reach the other side of the phone its really annoying. Bigger is not always better. I just like smaller phones easy to hold easier to put into your pocket… And lastly this phones back is so slippery placing it anywhere couch, table this dang thing slides so much you’ll think it has the cheapest back cover brakes known to man. And lastly…The sides of this phone is so very slippery too.. Yo it’s like a small child about to eat an ice cream cone as he grabs it lightly then suddenly the top of the vanilla ice cream pops out of his hands. Idk if it’s just to coating on it just felt heavy one handed use.

    Great Purchase!

    I’m very happy with my Google Pixel 7 256gb purchase. I have had it now for about 3 months and I couldn’t be more content with my purchase. I was dead set on getting the Iphone 14 but decided last minute to get the Pixel 7 because it was more economical and still had the features I was looking for. Not to mention the fact that in getting the Pixel, I was able to then use the other money I had set aside to get a GoPro Hero 11 creator addition, more accessories, and cases for both my phone and GoPro for the price I would have paid for the iphone and an otterbox alone.The interface is easy to use, and I like the android platform more than I thought I would. My previous phone was an Iphone and I was worried that I would loose the easy to use platform that I had become accustomed to.The cons – The fingerprint reader at times doesn’t recognize my fingerprint. I mostly attribute this to the fact that I work in a restaurant and after touching hot things for an extended period of time, my belief is that my fingerprint is just damaged enough to where the device has a harder time reading it, and the technology itself for reading fingerprints is a little outdated. The other thing I have noticed is that when I go from being on wifi to out and about, some times my device has a hard time connecting to my 5g smoothly which will make my IG or Pandora not want to work. When I have this issue, a quick restart seems to do the trick.With the cons in mind, I still think that the google phone is an excellent option and I am very glad I purchased it. I likely will stick with google phones in the future unless something else catches my eye enough to make me want to switch.

    Bought this at a great price.

    My pixel 3 was getting old and I wanted a newer phone. I waited till the pixel 8 was introduced and picked this up at a great price. Newer phones are starting to reach the point of diminishing returns. Staying 1 model behind the “bleeding edge” can save you tons of money and barely sacrifice features (if at all).

    The phone itself was not defective, but the service was.

    The phone itself worked and had some cool features, but BEWARE! I did a lot of research and weighed the pros and cons of switching from Samsung to a Google phone. The Google 6a still had more issues than I was willing to put up with so I waited for the Pixel 7 to see if those issues would be resolved. To my excitement, they were. I got this phone on Friday afternoon and by Saturday afternoon while out running errands, the phone was constantly dropping cell service. I was in a 5G area, and I’ve lived here for 4 years, so I know I should have had service. I got home, followed some online instructions to reset the network and hoped it would work. The next day, on Sunday, I went out for the day and again had no service off and on. I have Cricket service, so I went to the Cricket store and spent an hour troubleshooting and replacing the SIM card. I walked out hopeful and halfway home, I dropped service. I contacted Google support on Monday morning and after 2 hours, they told me that dropping service and having WiFi connection issues has been a problem since the phone launched in October of 2022. They assured me that they are trying very hard to have an update that will “hopefully” resolve the issue within the month, but they can’t guarantee it. They also told me that even if the update works, it’s only going out in batches, and it could still take another month before this phone gets the update. I work from my phone quite a bit and travel fairly frequently, so not having reliable service is a make or break for me. My phone is essentially a mobile computer and while there are some cool features, it’s not worth months of hassle waiting for an update. I would switch to the Pixel 7Pro, but Google informed me that it’s been an issue with that phone, as well. Hopefully in the future, Google will do a better job at making sure the basic features work instead of focusing on whether or not the home screen can rotate. Hope this helps in someone else’s decision on whether or not to purchase this phone, as I wish I had known this was an issue to begin with.

    It works well but fingerprint reader is iffy at times

    I’ve had this phone for a little over a month now so I thought I would give my thoughts on it.I upgraded this phone from a pixel 5 and so far I like it just fine. The one issue I have with it the most is the fingerprint reader. I have learned to register my finger from multiple angles multiple times so that it works better. If you register your finger once you will have a lot of problems. I actually have three profiles for one finger. Also, I have noticed that after I wash my hands, the fingerprint reader doesn’t pick up my fingerprint until my finger dries out all the way, which is annoying.The camera works well and I like taking photos with it. The phone is snappy and works well with the new version of Android. The screen is nice but has the same refresh rate as my old phone so nothing new there. The haptic feedback in this phone is much better than my Pixel 5. So far the phone is very stable and I am on the beta program so I get updates earlier. The battery life is good and I get over a day out of it but I am not a heavy phone user.Overall, I like the phone and it works well. I just wish the fingerprint reader was more accurate.

    Works fine but swipe actions not obvious

    After a year I still struggle with all the gesture motions needed to do something. The phone takes great photos.Going back to brand S after this breaks.

    Wonderful Photos

    I bought this phone for the reviewed photo quality and softwares behind the photos taken. As for that aspect, the phone is wonderful. All the photos are taken wonderfully and the software is easy to understand and use. However, some problems I do have with the phone are the touch screen sensors for unlocking the phone and the sound output when watching videos. The touch screen is really on and off, sometimes the phone unlocks sometimes the phone never unlocks, I’ve never used a touchscreen unlocking device but the incovience is mildly infuriating. Finally, the sound quality was weird when initially using since the phone is designed with a audio output on the top of the phone and one of the two outputs at the bottom, the sounds that comes out when watching a video with the phone horizontally felt really bad. Overall, I enjoy using the phone and I love the photos taken.

    1 day shipping is not accurate

    Seller’s listing was for 1 day shipping. Product was not delivered on promised date but the 2nd day. Good price bad delivery.
