Before I read this, I just have to comment on what is almost certainly the best review title I’ve seen on The Verge. Perfection.
I see what they’re trying to say, though, and I’m inclined to agree somewhat. The major thing that has held previous Pixel phones back is that Google didn’t have the supplier or capability to manufacture the highest of high end phones, both from the internals and the fit and finish. While Samsung certainly didn’t design this phone, the fact that they are manufacturing it means that Google isn’t limited by manufacturing prowess this time around.
I couldn’t be more excited for this device: Great design, top tier manufacturing, best software.

The chart for the Pixel 5a should probably be updated to be Android 12, since the OTA update has begun rolling out for Pixel phones.
Keep trying every so often. At about 2 hours after the announcement started, I was able to buy that exact model with no issues at all. (Now that first 90 minutes was hell)
