Google Pixel 2

Dieter Bohn (MacRumors, Hacker News):

Of course, neither the Pixel 2 nor the Pixel 2 XL are made out of plastic. They're made out of Gorilla Glass and aluminum, just like every other high-end phone these days.

But Google coated all that aluminum with a textured finish that hides most of the antenna lines and also makes the phones easier to grip. Google took what could have been a visually impressive design and covered it up in the name of ergonomics. It literally made a metal phone feel like a plastic one. It chose function over form.

Cupertino, please start your photocopiers.

Sounds like a good phone and it's only going to get better once they enable the dedicated image processing hardware.
