As a prime example: I purchased the Pixel 3 about a year ago, when it's price temporarily dropped to $399 for Project Fi customers. For that price, it's an awesome phone and I've been completely happy. Yeah, longer battery life would be icing on the case, but the size, speed, and always-captures-a-good-photo camera make it worthwhile tradeoff. That said, would I have paid $799 for it? No way!
If google sold these at $599 MSRP and included a 'normal' sized battery, reviews of this phone would be completely different. It's not rocket science. Either offer a phone that competes *on all levels* with other flagships or lower the price to make it a good value. Plus, everybody appreciates good battery life! Even budget phones are offering great battery life these days, so what's your excuse Google?
