So Google launched its highly-anticipated Pixel range of smartphones, yesterday. And it turned out too be a damp squib. Not the launch, but the device!

For one, what's with the hefty price tag and unflattering design? And secondly, what the heck is 'Really Blue'?
As soon as Google Pixel and Pixel XL were launched, obviously, people took to Twitter (because, where else?) and started bashing the devices for being ridiculously overpriced and failing to meet expectations.
Take a look at what the Pixel devices pack:
Google tried every bit to troll Apple but Twitter had something else in mind. Take a look at these mean tweets:

I haven't gone through my notifications on my phone since before the #MadeByGoogle because I'm afraid of that endless list— Justin Duino (@jaduino) October 4, 2016
