I've been considering something new myself. Have a note 8 now and like so many phones in the past, it starts out great and then after a year or so, battery life goes down the toilet. Not a fan of Google and their privacy/security concerns. I absolutely detest Apple and the company mindset. Wish I didn't have to carry this leash around at all. But if I must carry one, I want it to work. Several comments on the Pixel have my interest piqued. How has the history of battery life been on the Pixel phones?
