I don't reaaaaally want to say this but I feel less of an Apple fanboy now... I liked the look of this! Just waiting for some to be out in the wild and hear the feedback. Thoughts from others who also watched? (people obviously noticed some of the sly Apple digs right? 'no camera bump')

@bentossell I noticed the camera bump comment too. I think they forgot about Nexus 5X and 6P. I am still catching up but it looks incredible. I am sold on the initial looks and focus on photography.

@bentossell I want this phone. And I was refreshing the google store and not paying attention to the blog. Damn you @bentossell

@bentossell I've always liked the Google Camera app better than iOS. We've had Lens Blur for quite some time too, and the photo sphere is so fun when traveling. I love my Nexus 6P and I came from iPhone 6S+ and iPhone 5S

@erictwillis haha I had my eye on about 5 different things! The google store was not one of them!
Eric Willis@erictwillis · Working on something new
@bentossell I was checking some twitter accounts and some android blogs..even refreshing Verizon. Committed the rookie mistake and didn't check the official blog. Saw it on "newest" and was like.. damn it I bet that's Ben!

@bentossell Nearly every Google commercial makes digs at Apple...they can't just be original?
Jason Shultz@thehashrocket · Senior Software Engineer, 3form
@professorz @bentossell it goes both ways. Apple can't have a press conference without making a reference (however subtle) to Google. It's just how the game is played.

@bentossell I mean the spec is bonkers, but learning a new OS is my issue

I preordered. I've never had an android phone before. Honestly VR was the big selling point for me, it just seems fun. Cardboard is a massive pain to actually use, so I like the idea of a remote to guide everything in the interface without taking the headset off.

@eddietomalin @bentossell I feel you
Alexander Kehaya@afkehaya · Entrepreneur / ActionWins.co
@bentossell I felt the same way. The video makes this phone look awesome.

@nivo0o0 all being said... I just don't think I'll be going to Android. I'd feel dirty haha
Utkarsh Sinha@sinhautkarsh1 · Marketing, SpeakTribe
@nivo0o0 @bentossell Exactly! iPhone is exactly what Google is targeting. Their website a whole 'switching is easy' section. Adding a quick transfer cable is a nice, clever touch.

@bentossell I feel the exact same way. I am considering it when i need a new phone. I love my iphone but the thought of having to get a new case to enable me to have a headphone jack is annoying me let alone the fact that i wont have a normal headphone jack and will need to buy all these accessories to actually listen to music hence why I like the headphone … See more
