    Again, no MicroSD slot. Google does not care what you want. The price for this phone is outrageous. No thanks, I think I will pickup a spare MotoX Pure for $299.00

    I couldn't care less about external storage. The world has moved on.

    Excited to get my hands on one on release day! preordered from CPW, hope they deliver, they are being very vague on what stock they will actually have on the 20th.

    Hold up. Like the Original Moto X? Released in 2013? They still sell those? I'm sure if you already had one it works ok, but don't kid yourself, it works just ok. Though, I feel you, the Moto X is my favorite phone that I've ever owned. Regret switching to the second gen Moto X a year later. It was good, but not as great as the OG Moto X.

    Well said, my friend. I don't know how people keep mourning over this. Everything is accessible in the cloud. Not to say that 32 GB is ok, lol. That's barely enough to hold my apps, but if you need more than 128, we may need to talk about living in 2016. Disclaimer: this post assumes easy access to data, and perhaps lots of it. I recognize that attitude comes from a place of privilege. But if you're in this thread discussing the possibility of getting a Pixel XL, then you probably enjoy quite the amount of privilege.

    With 128 GB internal storage, plus the cloud, I'm not concerned about the lack of an SD card slot. I'll be fine with that. ;)

    Note 7 user...until it blows up.

    Went to pre order an XL in 128 gb and now only a waiting list? Phones not even out and they've decided they can't keep up with demand? Kind of a dropped ball if you ask me.

    Access to the cloud isn't a given to me - I can't even stream my Play Music in some areas where I travel by car, let alone access any documents

    Google know what they are doing - not offering a 64Gb option is sticking 2 fingers up at their customers

    So patiently wait for google to call my number to order an XL while my note 7 tries to kill me....or suck it up and order one from VZW/Best Buy with associated bloatware?

    My suggestion:
    • Get rid of the Note 7 right away - not worth the risk.
    • If you want a Pixel, and don't want a locked bootloader, use your old phone (If you still have it). If you don't have it, consider buying a cheap/dumb-phone till you get a Pixel
    • If you want a Pixel, and can live with a locked bootloader, get the Verizon version - in the interim, use your old phone or get a cheap/dumb-phone
    • If you don't want a Pixel - get whatever phone you want

    Those keep coming in and out of stick You can set up alerts at http://www.nowinstock.net/electronics/mobilephones/unlocked/googlepixel/

    You may also want to explore the option of buying it from Project Fi instead (please double check to make sure you don't get billed for Fi Service - from what I've read, your phone arrives unactivated, and you start your service if/when you plug in your Fi SIM. But double check with Fi team before you order)

    The only XL that FI shows is a 32gb.

    I'm rather curious about production numbers for each model. Did they make a larger number of the 32gb models? Did the 128gb just have a higher demand? If so, I know I'd have HTC ripping them puppies apart and installing the 128gb hardware.
