EE have been excellent for me.

I'm on that Eu roaming, and I used my phone abroad and didn't incur any horrible extra charges. Coverage seems good everywhere for me and I'm in the Highlands.

Cant speak much for the phone, its an s7 edge I have, Which is an excellent bit of kit.

Phone is suppose to be amazing, might be worth waiting a little longer to see what the proper user experiences are as at the moment we just have reviews of people who have handled the device for a day or so.

I bought one last week

Here's my super condensed review.
Hardware, is nothing special compared to other phones out in the current market. However, the main feature point of this phone, is pure android user experience. Fantastic to use overall. Android runs seamlessly with the phone. It's quick and clever with Google Assistant.
Camera quality is amongst the top heavy weight contenders, brilliant pictures. Also bonus of having unlimited, max quality storage space with cloud.
Battery decent enough with fast charge.

Quality, discreet, powerful phone

Worth 719? No fucking phone is... oh well, phone market is there for a reason.

Thought the hardware was top of the line??
I'll be keeping the Nexus 5 for a month or two. See what deals are about by then

Hardware is top of the line. But it's nothing special that say an iphone7, or a Samsung Edge doesn't have.
Overall, the phone is a premium model, which is just another option for anybody to splash their cash on.

Was trying to convince the missus to get one, but she opted for a S7 Edge instead.

Photos do look impressive on the Pixel, here's a completely unedited shot!

I ended up getting a Pixel XL 128Gb in December.

Last phone was a N5 so happy still on the vanilla android experience.

Coming from cheap sub 400 quid phones this was quite a leap, phone retailed at 819 from CPW (sim free) which sounds expensive but would of been about 300 more on contract over 3/4 years. Not to mention its still cheaper than a iphone 7 fully loaded (i think)
