    If your current phone is chugging along why not.
    Except the Sony XZ (I did have the Z3C and Z3 briefly) I have used every single phone on the list and so far the Pixel has worked out really well.
    The only issue I have with the Pixel is price. If it wasn't ridiculous expensive I'd get it even though I'm not a fan of the way it looks.

    My criteria is pretty simple.

    Size - around 5"
    Good battery
    Good camera
    Prefer waterproof (I live in the UK...)
    As close to 'vanilla' Android as possible
    Decent looking

    After that I'm pretty easy
    I had a joke based on a conundrum, but I'll send it to Sahib for analysis...

    Wait to see what the new Sony looks like. I heard the XZ is really solid, but don't think it is better than anything in the Pixel/S7/V20/Mate 9 bracket. There are currently only 3 people in the water resistant game...Sony, Sammy and iFruit. If your Z3 still works, keep chugging along...If it doesn't work, then honestly get a flip phone as an intermezzo...

    I was in the same boat. I like the Pixel but the price is Trump immigration policy scary to my wallet. If you catch it on a sale or see if 99 has some insight, that's a good option.

    Get a Verizon version, relatively cheap and works just like the factory unlocked ones.

    No worries. I appreciate it just wanting a newer phone. The Z3 is a bit long in the tooth now. Still works but a bit tired.

    I think my issue with the XZ is I'm just not sure what I think of it. I like the look of it. It's a nice looking phone overall. But I'm just not sure. I don't know if I want to go with Sony again.

    Agreed. If they made the 'Standard' Pixel (5.0") around $499 i think it would outsell any iPhone or Samsung devices in 2017. The software on there is amazing! plus you get access to Beta updates which is a nice addition. It's all about price and the value you getting for it. I personally think the days of people purchasing devices for $800 + are slowly going away. It's just not worth the cash, especially when you have devices like the OnePlus 3T or the Axon 7 coming in at much lower prices. :)

    I'll agree with that.

    I'm hoping whatever Nokia plans to being out is reasonably priced but I'm not holding my breath...

    I don't expect to be impressed, really. The market is too saturated.

    Yeah, people are hung up on this Nokia "savior" idea and I'm indifferent, unless they decide to make a good small phone for someone like me who likes those.

    It's not so much the saviour thing it's more about if they'll make anything worth buying. Will they have the camera? Will their audio be better? What about design in general?

    Those are the questions I have. I'm not hung up on Nokia I'm just curious. Price will be the other deciding factor of course.

    I agree! I figured that you are curious, me too. From what I have seen around, it seems like some people are willing to give them a pass just because they are Nokia.
