Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy Google has decided to release a "budget" version of the Pixel (£400 is still loads, but compared to the average £7-800 phones that are coming out it's a big improvement).
I've just spent a few minutes trying to compare the dimensions to my current phone (Honor Play, which was cheap, but slightly too big for me really), and discovered that consistency is fot other companies. Why the actual fuck do people still use imperial measurements? I mean, I love me a bit of base 12/14/16 (take your pick, swap randomly between them), but surely metric just works better. I can't even tell you my own weight in pounds/stones (or do any of the conversion maths).
