    Can’t afford to buy new phone.

    $1000 phones are insane.

    How about a dependable phone that just makes phone calls and texts, that doesn’t require a mortgage?

    How do these companies get away with withholding software upgrades.

    Thanks for pointing that out! 5 years of support! How does Google Pixel support compare and contrast to Apple Iphone support?

    Pixel 6 main camera is 50 megapixels not 15. Good research, WP

    none of these features make me want to spent that much money – where are the reviews of the cheaper phones? The single feature I care most about is seamless compability with Android Auto

    Like I’d trust the WaPo for info.

    Huge internal memory storage, and longest lasting battery? Iphone 13 Pro Max – like $1500? (But, is it huge, as in, like the or one of the largest cell phones – largest screen too?)

    🇮🇱 ISRAEL is bulldozing Palestinian cemetery to build a park in Jerusalem.

    This is how Israel is erasing Palestinian history off the map.

    How will the actual performance of the battery life of the new Pixels match up with the most recent Iphones? If it can last the day, maybe that will suffice for people, but you might wonder, which has the actual longest lasting and best performing battery life, for those sticky situations people could get into in life and really need that extra bit of battery power and performance to get by?

    Turn off the damn music so we can hear you.
