Google's 2017 Pixel Sales Amount To Less Than A Weeks Worth Of iPhone Sales
 

 
image

In the 16 months since its initial release in October 2016, Google’s Pixel family of phones has earned plenty of acclaim and scrutiny, but not very many sales. The latest update on Pixel sales comes from IDC’s Francisco Jeronimo, who notes that Google shipped 3.9 million Pixel and Pixel 2 devices in 2017. That’s no more than a rounding error when set against the global smartphone market that numbers 1.5 billion units, and it’s also less than a typical week’s worth of iPhone sales for Apple.

Though still comparatively tiny, Google’s Pixel sales are at least heading in the right direction. According to Jeronimo, the rate of sales has doubled in 2017, and the most recent data from Kantar Worldpanel agrees with this, indicating that Google’s share of the US phone market has gone up from 1.8 percent to 2.8 percent. Admittedly, these are still small figures increasing in small fragments — rather like watching the proliferation rate of the latest Android update, it requires a lot of patience — but Google’s commitment to being a hardware maker has never been greater. Having recently acquired HTC’s smartphone design team for $1.1 billion, Google will be hoping to build on the strength of its world-best Pixel camera technology by creating more appealing devices in 2018 and beyond.

Lower the price of the phone. Only Samsung and Apple can have phones priced that high and do numbers.

I actually agree with this from a consumer stand point. Specially when the nexus devices used to be a fraction of this. From a business stand point, they’re more or so selling the google family of products. So they figure the more you buy the better just like Apple.

You get 90% of that ecosystem with any Android phone you buy. Why would I spend that kind of money on a Pixel when I can spend damn near the same money on a Note and have a better, more feature rich phone? If it's a stock Android thing, just get the One Plus 5t. Half the price, damn near stock Android and it's a good phone. That camera and the unlimited photo storage is only going to go so far. They've got an uphill battle unless they make that phone the only one that runs Android.

Don't they only sell the pixel on 1 carrier at a time also? Like right now isn't it just Verizon or do they eventually expand to the other carriers also?

They're all unlocked. If you buy one from Verizon, you can put it on any carrier that allows unlocked phones. Im typing this reply on a Pixel 2 XL on T-Mobile.

They also sell them unlocked in the Play Store

I told y'all. Sales are not the Nexus/pixel game. Google is and will always be in the business of compiling information and selling it. The success of the pixel is measured by how the os affects the ecosystem of the other Android devices down the river.

Besides that you can download google photos on any phone so that unlimited storage they promote is a gimmick anyway

I agree

MOTO Z, One + 5t...hell even the essential phone.

You can get the galaxy s7 with the updated OS and its a better option than the pixel2 and even the s8 if you dont wanna pay the extra 300

It just depends on how you use your phone. All those features you mentioned come at a price. If you have a Samsung or a phone with a skin, you have no idea when you'll get the newest OS version because they have to reskin the OS. I prefer stock Android and I need the newest Android OS at all time for dev so I can't buy a Note. OnePlus 5 and 5t are both pieces of sh*t so the Pixel is the best choice for me.

That's the beauty of Android: There is a phone for everybody. You don't have to buy Google's phone if you want Android. You can buy Samsung, LG, Sony, etc...

This looks bad from a sales standpoint, but I don't think Google is really trying to do iPhone numbers with the Pixel. The Pixel/Nexus line has always just been the way to show off the newest features in the newest Android version.

The Pixel's slowly becoming a household name. It's a solid phone with a great camera and battery life. It's not that it's not flagship material, it's just not the most popular.


Just think about what factors into you paying premium price for a phone

Google priced themselves out when they released the nexus 6. They let companies like One Plus and Huawei catch up and give a better offering for a cheaper price.
