After I had a Pixel 2 for 3 week I ended up returning it. It would've been a great phone, if it wasn't plagued by issues that are seemingly ignored by Google. My Pixel 2 was randomly rebooting itself, despite resorting to the Pixel Community for help as per suggested by Google. I ran it in Safe Mode, did a Factory Reset, even wiped its Cache Partition, yet still, it randomly reboots. This is an issue that plagues hundreds of users, but since it's just hundreds of users, Google doesn't see it as a high priority.
On top of the random reboots, the device also makes a high pitched coil whine when making phone calls, this is also not a common issue, though affecting hundreds of devices.
Anyone looking to buy a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL should be aware that their device might be plagued with these issue as well. I would strongly recommend waiting for Google to fix these issues before dropping your money on these devices.
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2017Is there any versions that have dual sim or not? Its 'NO'Until now we don't have a dual sim version from Google i mean nexus and pixel ..
The pixel is fantastic. I would have got it had it had a smooth screen edge to frame feel like HTC A9 and others.
AnonD-623081, 21 Oct 2017actually i dont know a single person whos listening music from his phone via headphone jack.. ... moreso if it so yesterday why do cars still come with a audio jack....why do high end audio equipment still use the audio jack....even computers still come with a audio jack....so you can't say its yesterday tech when it is still every where
AnonD-628117, 15 Nov 2017With the same design as last year, a screen that doesn't get any brighter and a battery that i... moreThe Nokia 8 can compete with the pixel 2 in a number of area's sure. For camera quality though it isn't even close, the pixel 2 isn't just a league above its more like 3 league's.
But yes the Nokia 8 could be argued to be better value for money at £399, it's camera is bad though.
People like me, who reasonable treat a smartphone as simply a smartphone, need to justify paying £629 (at carphonewarehouse) for a phone. It'd be better to price it at £500 and give the rest to charity. But I'll wait a bit longer when carphonewarehouse slashes the price as it did with Pixel XL at reasonable £399.
With the same design as last year, a screen that doesn't get any brighter and a battery that is marginally better, Google has not really done enough IMO. IP67 is welcome though. Nokia 8 seems better value (now £399 in UK).
No headphone jack kills it for me. Don't tell me about Bluetooth, I've tried several versions and they just don't work consistently well. There are NO good USB-C earbuds yet. If either of those two ever come about, I'd go for it. My first gen Pixel works just fine. NO THANKS GOOGLE!
Since my last post about 10 days ago, I'm still having a good experience with the Pixel 2. The only issue I get is that I am unable to use the built in file Manager in the way that it will only let me move files to the Downloads folder. Can't transfer to any other folder. Thus I cant even move to an OTG connected sd card. The only solution is to use a third party File Manager App. Also, if you still haven't got the November 5th patch with the vivid colours, you need to manually search while connected to WIFI.
phone too big for the screen size. this thing should be made a compact
You should never buy a phone (2 XL) today based on the promise of a software tomorrow. And make no mistake: I do not believe that GoogleÂ’s software changes are going to alter the experience of this screen.
Camera is phenomenal, videos are like it's on rails, image stabilization is fantastic as is it's night cababilities. Recorded a video in a nightclub and it not only shows clearly in the dark it responds quickly to bright lights and doesn't over expose.
As close a phone camera to your own eyes as I've seen.
Too big for the phone with the fingerprint sensor on the back. Too expensive. Too small battery capacity. Typical HTC (& SONY, unfortunately) characteristic. Sorry guys, but you should look at Chinese and Korean friends, and learn how to make modern phones.
I think will take google pixel 2 because the dimension is very good for my hand
