Yep, ordered as soon as it went live during the event and much earlier than expected. Why?
The green looks cool and I am fine with the specs once the battery size was clear.
The form factor is exactly what I want (and sooooo very close to the Essential phone)
The BOSE headphone deal is almost ridiculous (even though I have Sony XM3s) making it a steal.
I have a problem with my wh900's and ordered the xm3 (overhead headphones so we both mean the frame thing) 2 days ago. I cancelled them this morning after ordering the pixel 5. I'll probably sell them on but I'm curious to hear the difference, meanwhile the xm3 might drop some more in price while I use my wh900 and wait for these Bose units.
Sony's naming convention confuses me, I think there's another one similar in name to xm3 but it's in ear.Yep, we mean the same Sony ones (apologies, I probably got it wrong). I guess the BOSE will drop heavily in price once a bunch of people get free ones and eBay gets busy with them.
I expected the headphone deal to be in-ears with wireless charging, but now I realise that the 4a5g (what a bad name) has the same deal it makes sense for the latest pixel buds.
To be fair, it's pretty typical El goog seemingly having no sense of narrative with their own products. Perhaps they can push that as "consistency in an ever changing situation". :silly:
