53% of Americans Want to Buy the Google Pixel After Tuesday’s Announcement
According to a post-announcement flash poll conducted by Pollfish —a real-time mobile survey platform—tech enthusiasts were so impressed by the new Google phone that Samsung might have something to worry about.
The survey, which polled 1,000 Android users on October 4-5, 2016, provides exclusive insights on initial reactions
1. IN THE RACE FOR FIRST, THE GOOGLE PIXEL TRUMPS IPHONE
With The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 embroiled in controversy, the Google Pixel was great news for Android lovers. 53% of Americans polled said they would be interested in buying the new device, while 76% said they would choose the Google Pixel over the iPhone 7.
2. VIRTUAL REALITY IS BECOMING A REALITY—AND PEOPLE ARE EXCITED
61% of respondents are excited about the DayDream View VR, and intend to purchase the headset when it hits store shelves next month.
3. SCREEN SIZE MATTERS—THE BIGGER, THE BETTER
According to the Pollfish survey, over 49% of Americans prefer the larger Pixel XL (5.5-inch Quad HD) over the regular 5-inch Pixel with a 1080p screen (just 18%). That’s no surprise, given the new VR headset that allows you to use Daydream View on your smartphone screen.
4. …BUT THERE’S ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT
While tech enthusiasts are excited about the new gadget, the Google Pixel is far from perfect—25% of Pollfish’s respondents were disappointed that the device isn’t waterproof (water resistant).
