      I feel Google doesn't need to jump in hardware business....They should stick to what they are good at

        Android is the worst OS a phone could have. With powerful hardwares underlying, android is restricting the user, the experience the powerful hardware is slated to provide

          They are not buying hardware companies, they are buying user data. Your privacy, your future.

            Their products are very expensive don't have a fan following who will pay that much money
            They are not available anywhere and more
            If they make products like Moto G they will be successful again

                They also have crappy support. I have been without a phone for two days because my 3 xl stopped working. Google first referred me to my carrier who referred me back to google. After all that, they said they decide they will warranty replace it, but I had to send the phone in first then wait until they send my one back. When my note 8 stopped working, Samsung sent me to a repair partner who repaired the phone on the spot, covered by warranty. People I know who have apple phones got a replacement phone with a return package to return the device.

                            Despite the struggles I've had mostly good experiences with Google's hardware. Battery and price aside (and I personally have no problems with my battery life) but the Pixel 4 is a fantastic piece of hardware. Both of my Chromecast work as advertised and have been a fantastic addition to my home. The Google Home mini is also a nice touch.

                              Lots of legal issues here. We never consented and the acceptance the legality of any EULA is questionable. In effect these agreements are worded where you have no rights and they have all. In addition, no ads can be served to anyone without the explicit agreement in writing between both parties, and all terms and conditions must be viewable BEFORE a single ad is served - no contract no ads.

                              A magistrate from a court in Munich, Germany was dealing with Axel Springer vs Eyeo GmbH (maker of AdBlock Plus) and stated "The Süddeutsche Zeitung ruling came through in a Munich court. The judge said it is perfectly legal for people to install ad-blockers in their browsers as publishers have no contracts with their readers that insist they have to look at the ads."

                              The ‘implied contract’ theory that we’ve agreed to view ads in exchange for free content is void because we can’t review the terms first — as soon as we follow a link, our browsers load, execute, transfer, and track everything embedded by the publisher. Our data, battery life, time, and privacy are taken by a blank check with no recourse.” Every time you visit a website with an ad, it's an implied contract, but since you cannot view all the terms it's void and cannot be enforced. However under contract law, the only valid contracts are those signed in ink and both parties. Something you cannot do online, and these "bluff statements" like "by continuing to use this site you agree or our terms and conditions" are not legal either.

                              Oh BTW another 559 ads blocked during the writing of this comment.

                                  Microsoft and Apple also do hardware, Amazon tries, too. If you want to rely on third parties to build hardware for your platform, competing against them would not be so good, but setting an example would be. So, high quality, high price would make sense, but not direct money. The early Pixel Chromebook was certainly that.

                                    The hardware collection they have today is nothing compared to where it will be in 2030. Just one more decade to decade hardware cycle roll out as oppose to their dominance in decade to decade software cycles, and it will make more sense to everyone.

                                      When the pixel is at 2% of USA sales, there is no hope in asian markets. Where majority of the growth is happening

                                                Google isn't taking their phones serious, that's all. We, Android community, literally tell Google what we want on a phone and they give us something else. I still use Google products cause it already knows me. We live in the internet age and there's no point in running away or trying to delete everything you do. I don't mind them making money off of me just to give me better advertisements because I actually find them useful in things I want to try out and buy. I know it sounds bad or like I'm brainwashed but, I really would rather get ads that I can relate to instead of ads about back pain, medical pills, or gold coins...

                                                  The Pixel series of phones could be better. Google can either learn from their mistakes, enlist the aid from other companies, or stick to software. In an ever-competitive market for the latest tech, cross-shopping Samsung and Google for phones seems like a no brainer because Google undercuts Samsung. Then OnePlus comes along and all of a sudden, Google is overpriced.

Think about people on YouTube that had their entire Google accounts banned for something on YouTube. Now imagine Google leveraging their hardware in situations like this. No thanks. Google definitely does too much evil for my taste.

The only people who get Chromebooks are teenagers who got them as a gift from their grandparents who thought it was a normal laptop. No one who has a Chromebook is happy about it. It's definitely a stain on google's hardware business.

That is why their products are half baked and the quality is just not there. Including their software. If you think your money is worth an experiment for Google buy their products otherwise, not worth what they want to charge you. They should pay the users to use their products.
