India Is Not Pre-Ordering the Pixel Like Expected

Browse This Page

The Google Pixel is a successor to the successful Nexus line of phones which started to dwindle in popularity towards the end of their cycle. Google’s new Pixel and Pixel XL are what iPhone and iPhone Plus are to Apple, proprietary phones, designed to work perfectly well with their software. The Google Pixel and Pixel XL also break the traditional price barrier for Nexus devices pricing them upwards of US$ 649 and in India starting at a Rs. 57000 slightly short of the iPhone 7 price tag. pixel-colors However, the Google Pixel has failed to excite the Indian consumers like the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus did, according to our source at Flipkart. The company has received little pre-orders and are falling short of expectations the sales teams had. Google has also started pushing advertisements  in India for the Pixel in order to excite potential customers. However general expectations of price have been off from he users and the pricing seems high despite the specifications on the Pixel handsets. The most expensive Pixel Xl with 128 GB storage is expected to sell the least and is priced at Rs. 76000.

Presently the Very Silver and Quite Black colours of the phone are on sale and the Really Blue colour is not expected in India. Are you waiting to buy the Pixel or the Pixel XL or would you rather buy something else?

When they ask for 57k it should also look like that. It had a bad design. One plus had a better design.

Lol there are many good phones compared to it. The worst company i thought was Apple for over pricing but Google proved that it was no. 1 in every thing even in overpricing

nexus 5 was a huge success because it was available with a affordable price. Once successors launched with a higher price the sales fallen.

Obviously! What is the incentive for getting a #Pixel over S7 Edge / S7 /HTC 10/LG G5?

Google software, regular updates, best camera, unlimited cloud storage for photos and best developer support.

Android Flagships get same 3 year support with "extra" features, that is yet to come in stock. Vanilla #Android is much behind the curve and barely catching up. #Nougat added something like Split Screen after ages (already in Touchwiz n iOS) Pixel would be big flop coz previous #Nexus phones were meant for the price conscious buyers.

If you consider what the Indian "middle class" earns, then it makes sense I guess. Rather pay the kids tuition fees than let the sweet Google Pixel assistant take him to the bus stop or send some emails :) Ok they targeted the premium sector for flaunt value, then why does the phone look so terribly boring and cheap?!

Overpriced. Just like the Nexus 6 was. Take my word, the prices will dwindle very fast for these phones just like it happened with the Nexus 6.

They should grow up and pay attention to the customers and trends If someone has to flaunt they will buy an iphone not an over-priced piece of Android

Over pricing is the main factor.. One shld make product like this within the budget of max 35k.. Atleast for India.

With such a steep pricing for the phone just after the nexus line. Pretty much no. Would rather buy a nexus 6p or would actually wait for Google to come down on price revision
