These are my notes from the event. Not organized by any means!

Hey Google, find my phone. iPhone users get a phone call, Android buzzes your phone even if it is on silent.


Integration with Nest was impressive. Face recognition and announces who is at the door. Or show the front door on the TV. Sets alarm, etc.

I got the 64 this time.  Had 128 last time and never used it. Although was good for resale I opted to save up front.

I am really thinking about getting one. Investigating how much I can get for my new version 1 XL, both for trade in and selling. What was the site you have been using for selling phones? Is it better than eBay?

Did you look at trade in with Google?

I use swappa for used selling and buying.



Side note, check out the Preferred Care at $129. It's roughly the same cost but on Project Fi you have the choice of paying $5 a month for that protection. If you only have the phone a year like I do then it's a lot better deal though.
