While some of us (guilty, as charged) were sleeping last night, Google unleashed 2 of its smartphone offerings – Pixel and Pixel XL, at its “Made By Google” event.
Our previous article has already gone through the more technical aspects of the phone, but what does the internet think about it?
Other than taking the mickey out of the names of the colours available, most of the comments were centred around its hefty pricetag and likeness to competitor Apple’s iPhone.
Regardless, here are some responses we found which can only be described, in true Pixel style, as “quite, really, and very” hilarious.

That awkward moment when the 3.5 Jack invented in 1964 becomes a selling argument for a 2016 phone. #Pixel
