vinit, 23 Mar 2019I am really confused between pixel 2xl and I phone 8 plus....camera is my main concern...someb... moreif what you doing is just point and shoot and looking for the best camera quality especially in low-light, take this phone.
if you doing alot of videography and social media such as snapchat & insta stories, even iphone 7 is doing better than Pixel 2 XL and it's cheaper now, let alone iphone 8 plus.
and yes I own both Pixel 3 XL (not this phone, but there's hardly any difference) for my main phone & iphone 7+ for the purposes I explain above.
I am really confused between pixel 2xl and I phone 8 plus....camera is my main concern...somebody plz provide me a genuine suggestion
Leon, 14 Mar 2019so is this phone still worth buying in 2019? is the screen gonna be ok since Pixel 2 XL got so... morei got the phone nearly a year no issues whatsover here..battery life is okish tho depends on the usage..its a nice really fast phone....if u want great camera,fast updates and clean android for the pixel....the samsung on the other hand is a fantastic phone screen is brilliant the camera really good and it has pro mode...well the ui depends on ur liking and for the updates...well patience....security updates r good but os ones waiting list as it seems...i had samsung for years but for me the pixel wins for the more straightforward approach and no themes no clean ram buttons just works straight away and the camera is brilliant even tho there is no pro mode...
okay so I just bought this phone like 2 days ago when I wrote this, and uhh I'm still new with this stock android things cause I was Iphone users since the 5, and I want to ask... why did whenever I kept on clicking the android version the P logo won't show up like in others android devices? is that normal? is that how it works for pure android?
Leon, 14 Mar 2019so is this phone still worth buying in 2019? is the screen gonna be ok since Pixel 2 XL got so... moreThe screen is not bad as people make you think. I've been using the pixel 2 xl for a month now and never seen the blue tint unless i tilt the device like 90 degrees.
so is this phone still worth buying in 2019? is the screen gonna be ok since Pixel 2 XL got some serious issue with it. or should I get the S9+ instead?
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2019Pixel 2 xl or htc u12 plus? Forget about htc. It's dying my dear.
jack_daniels, 27 Dec 2018Awesome device. Previous Oneplus 3T user here. Dabbled a lot between OP 6T and Pixel2XL. Final... moreDid good I had 6t but in bright sun you cannot see anything now happy with pixel screen with no problem
My Pixel 2XL was good for about 10 months. Now it jams up. The response has become slow between apps and Google shuts down. I have reset it and cleaned it out and still jams up. I will not get another one. I am dissappointed
This phone is really god in fact. But I have some terrible experience l. First about software : gesture based navigation isn't as good as iphone x, neither not good as xiaomi implementation. I can't simple swipe down from center area to expand notification. Second, about hardware side : I already gave up searching best usb type c handsfree & jack audio adapter, the original one come from the box can't use for telephony. Google trying to follow apple in suck way. Better they back to nexus philosophy. Pixel is not all rounder phone like galaxy s9.
Guys, im from indonesia in southeast asia and i want to buy pixel 2xl but in here its not officially launch, if i bought pixel 2 xl and its broken, its must be hard to repair. Should i buy pixel 2 xl or s8 plus guys? Pixel 2xl camera is still beast right?

hxtr, 28 Jan 2019I just recently bend my Pixel 2 XL 128GB in half. It was a bit too easy to do so I tossed it i... moreCompletely Agree. Its a Fantastic phone. Great camera. Peoples and You tube experts are making unnecessary hype about the blue tint. its not affecting day to day performance and after some time you will forgot about this. Go and grab it Way better than I phone and Samsung.
NEW MOB, 16 Jan 2019Which should i get galaxy note 8 or google pixel 2 xl? Regarding all aspects Display camera ... moreNeither... Galaxy phones are filled with Bloatware. Pixel 2 XL screen is crap and annoying to look at. Check out the Essential PH-1 phone. Fantastic phone and a great price right now with zero bloatware just like the Pixel 2 XL with a much better screen that the Pixel 2 XL.
I just recently bend my Pixel 2 XL 128GB in half. It was a bit too easy to do so I tossed it in the trash. Last week I picked up a Essentials PH-1 and I'm kicking myself for not getting this phone before hand rather wasting my money on a Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 2 XL has a strange effect if you look at the screen with any slight tilt, it's like a polarization problem and you get a blue haze look to it. It is very annoying. The speed was fine and the camera was great but the Essential is almost just as good and the hardware feels premium from top to bottom unlike the Google Pixel 2. As for the screen on the Essential... night an day difference from the Pixel 2 XL. I really enjoy hold and looking at this phone.
Save your money and go get a used Essential PH-1 for just $220 dollars or a new one for $400 to $460 depending on the color you choose. Best phone I have ever put in my hands.
Using Pixel 2XL for last 5 months.
Was an iphone user for last 5 years changed to Pixel cause of camera features but found the Android 9 same as smooth as IOS 12 if not better.
Was thinking of buying the Samsung S9+ but the Smooth OS turned the game for me.
Also the Sudden discount in Pixel2XL played my mind into buying it.
An apple device containing Potrait mode is still costlier than Pixel 2XL.
1)Best Android OS user interface.
2) If not the Best Camera. Such a pure sight camera, beats High contrast Apple & Samsung cameras any time of the day.
3) The Night site Mode is Just WOW.
4) Unlimited Google Photo store for next 3 years.(Apple should learn from this 5GB icloud is nothing.)
5) I am not an heavy gamer so battery lasts more than a day with me with 4G on whole time but about 18-19 hours with Wifi connected.
6)Apps run smoothly as it runs in IOS.
7)No Stupid themes or skins to slow the phone down.
8)Gets Android updates easily. (Still Apple is better at this as they provide update untill 5 years, Google would do untill 3 years).
9) Portait mode with Single Cam is so SMARTer than Apple & Samsung.
10)Also premium looks way better than One Plus devices.
11) No lags untill now.
12) Trust me android 9 is smarter than IOS 12.
1) Display good but not top notch at this PRICE range.
2) Some things like that Apple book, Apple Pass etc feature missing in Android. Google should try to use that as it really become handly. You can store all ID cards soft copies without any trouble to find them over & over again.
3)IOS is much more user friendlier.(Depending upon how u use for phone.)
4)App syc with device still not at IOS level.
5) Screen touch quality is way worse than an Iphone 6.
In Short I m a Happy user, only migrated from Apple due to higher price for almost similar or less features.
Trust me the Camera in this device is just WOW.
I dnt trust the DXO mark scores for this device is much better. Iphone XR camera is worse than this.
Buy this you wnt regret. Except TOP shot it has all the Pixel 3Xl's rear cam features.
