my coworker just asked me if i saw the keynote and then expressed some consternation that, because of the facial recognition software, no one would be able to unlock their phone on Halloween

Buying Motorola and improving their product line while continually undermining it with the Nexus program, then selling it off at a huge loss and now maybe buying HTC has got to be the dumbest of the many dumb Google product sagas.

none of those moves were intended to benefit the consumer at least short term

they made sense, people just read too much into them

right, but that's sort of what makes it all dumb and in line with Google changing their minds about everything every year or two

buy a company ostensibly for their patent portfolio (which turns out to be largely worthless), invest money in turning them around anyway, book a huge loss, and now suddenly decide to get in the consumer game

I mean the options for stock Android are bad now

I don't want my phone to be squeezable and I would like a 3.5mm jack instead of stereo speakers, but here we are

I don't give two shits about bezels

OnePlus 5 seems like a good phone with high-end specs.

Xiaomi Mi A1 looks like a great midrange/budget device, though not yet sure if it has the LTE bands to work well here.

i dont understand how someone with any interest in security or privacy can use a google phone

the level of analytics is so fine-grained that they track when you accept/decline autocorrect suggestions

I'd like a phone with a pixel-quality camera and no other modern features

that'd be ideal
