Ok the Pixel 2 XL was just leaked today, I am a major Nexus nerd, and super pumped for the new Pixel. But $850 for the base option starting price, and $950 for the good Pixel 2. !! Holy Cow, that's unbelievable for the stock Android phone; http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/0...wo-colors-will-cost-849-64gb-model-949-128gb/ And seems all flagships this year are just skyrocketing in price for no apparent reason; Pixel 2 = $950 !!! iPhone X = starting @ $999 Galaxy Note 8 = $950 Huawei Mate 10 leaked today, will be $900+ Am I in the Twilight Zone or something, when the fuk did smartphones jump up to the $1,000 range all of a sudden ? I recall the $649 to $700 price range being the main flagship pricing for years for most high end phones. Some creeping up to $750 or so. But BAM 2017 comes around and close to $1,000 is the new standard WTF ?
