My Pixel 1 I bought at launch was perfect, never a problem. Well, I mean, the battery aged, but I replaced it. Then it suddenly was just dead. Woke up one morning and it would not power on. Black screen, nothing.
Gave me just over 3 years of trouble free use though, which is the longest I've kept a cellphone as long as I've had a cellphone, so I guess I can't complain.
I replaced it with a Pixel 3 when they were selling off the last ones at a discount after the 4 launched in October.
I'll with all likelihood keep this one until support ends, and then poke around at whats available. That should be Pixel 5a time. I hope they keep up the trend of keeping the fingerprint sensor and analog audio jack with the 5a.
In fairness, I got $350 for the microphone glitch from the class action lawsuit so I can't really complain since I used the phone for over a year, traded it in for ~$100 toward my pixel 3a, and still got $350 from the lawsuit.
I kind of like the Pixel 2 the best. I wish they made that screen ratio with smaller bezels for the "a" phones.
