I have the pixel 2 XL also the Galaxy S8 plus, I have the xiaomi mi 6,(yes I'm a geek) there is not that much between the S8 plus and Pixel (in my humble opinion) both have their strengths, the pixel just works.

Looking at getting a Pixel XL, want to know if it has a file manager already built in (like Samsung does). I don't like to use 3rd party if I don't have to.

Anonymous, 01 Dec 2017second on this opinion...I also agree that back is the ugliest design ever seen...
AnonD-515875, 07 Nov 2017its difficult to choose, Google Pixel 2 XL or HTC U11+ ??? Please help meeWell go with phone what has smaller bezels, headphone jack and SD slot...
my opinion is that this phone is way overpriced: so much better in the nexus era!
The screen is a real problem. No its not more true color there is very little red. For example I took photos of red leaves and they show red on my other phone as well computer but on the XL it looks brown. There is no fix and they tell you the phone is working as expected
The blue tint really kills this phone. You donÂ’t even have to tilt the screen that much to see it. I also found the text quite blurry when scrolling, gave me a headache. ItÂ’s a shame because the performance and camera are top-notch.
Had my XL for a week. Seems very fast. Really starting to like Oreo. Very nice display although the touchscreen seems a bit sensitive and I wish it was as big and wide as my V20. I'm a large guy and I don't care for the tall, skinny look like the new Galaxy's. I like big and wide like the V20. Wish the V30 was the same size.
Still haven't tried everything on it. But did try the squeeze/google thing last night. Kind of cool but then when I looked at my white text screen it had some black areas along the left side. I saw this before on an old Droid X that I had years ago after I dropped it face down on concrete. I had several black spots that never went away. Anyway, this phone has not been dropped. In fact, for $850, it gets extremely babied. When I got up this morning the black was mostly gone but I'm still gonna take it in and get a replacement. Hope this is a one time occurrence.
The thing I am always disappointed about is it's back. Instead of rubber, they could use metal or even glass which some people don't prefer. The partly glass doesn't make sense. I like it's camera though, amazing camera. Sadly, Mate 10 Pro and V30 could do slightly better in some places. It's headphone jack missing is fine as many companies are starting to remove them... Can't blame Apple or Google about this.
handyfan, 30 Nov 2017It is unfortunate that Google did not give this wonderful phone a 3.5 mm headphone jack. There... moreI use the headphone jack quite a lot. But recently i have found that wireless is much more convenient. Even if you dont want to use wireless you can always keep the adapter attached to the earphones. That way you wont lose them.
