Pixel phones now have call screening where Google Assistant answers the phone and asks the person why they are calling, then tells you, and you can decide to pick up. I've used the button, but...

To clarify, they do use both T-mobile and Sprint if you use a fully supported phone (X4, v20?, Pixel, or Nexus 6P/5X). If you use a data only SIM in any device, you can only use T-mobile.

This. They added support for Samsung phones which is a huge portion of the market. Not sure if that gets it to a majority or not. I probably would have used another word than "most."

I think the combo flip screen and a 15" screen is going to be a very tough find, if you can find it at all. If you need a large touchscreen, you'll probably need to go all-in-one which will not be...

Depends on the carrier, is my guess. If it is AT&T, T-mobile, or Sprint, it is probably locked. Verizon is required to unlock all their phones, though they've been trying to sneak some through and...

$799 with 64gb, $899 with 128gb. XL is +$100 on each.

I'm very surprised the extra $100 doesn't get you 256gb.
