And make no mi... moreEspecially once you have the screen burn, no amount of software updates will rectify it. It then becomes a hardware issue. All this new fix does is dim the three bottom keys. Well what about the bar itself ? and the notification bar at the top. That will burn after some time.
Dragon, 09 Nov 2017Is it dual sim or single sim only? Single removable sim only.

Anonymous, 14 Oct 2017Better than the original Pixel XL: bigger battery, better internal storage options, better pro... moreI agree on the aspect ratio. Would have been nice if it was a wee bit wider, at least as wide as a Nexus 6.
However, it does have headphone jack, built into the USB C plug. And it does have dual sim, one is an "eSim". Your carrier probably doesn't support it *yet* (only google "Fi" does right now), but it shouldn't take too long before you see more supported. For instance, apple uses the same kind of thing in a watch -- the one with the "leave your phone at home" advertising.
Aircrackng, 14 Oct 2017Both the Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30 have major benefits over the Pixel 2... this is a pretty mis... moreNo microsd because.... we've moved WAY beyond that. Its not 2005 any more, there is enough flash built in to overcome. Sdcards are also hella slow compared to internal storage.
No headphone jack... except the one in the USBC port, so your statement is very misleading.
IP68 and 810G drop protection... well that's actually the most interesting question you asked. Fact is, this phone is essentially the same as the LG V30, which DOES have those. So why isn't it listed? Probably because the 5" Pixel 2 (HTC) didn't reach those levels. They're marketing the two phones as "the same" outside of the size, so the lesser of the two phones' specifications is the one that is advertised. Now regardless of those two characteristics, you are probably best off not TESTING them, but I think you can be very confident in the XL2 in case you do end up pushing the specifications.
Why no dual camera? Because that is a complete gimmick.
Why no CAT 16 LTE? Actually, it DOES have that. Its a feature of the Qualcomm MSM8998 (Snapdragon 835).
Worse body screen to bezel ratio... Huh? The only thing I see with less bezel is eyeFoneX, which pays the price by adding in DUAL BLEMISHES. One realllllllly nasty one up at the top, and one not *as* terrible at the bottom.

Guessing... moreSpeaking as someone who *has owned a samsung*, I will NEVER own one again.
Normally, I would be willing to give a manufacturer a second chance, since glitches happen, but the amount of INTENTIONAL sabotage that I found with the samsung is simply unacceptable. The most obvious is that they disabled a heap of security checks in the kernel build scripts to coerce their out-of-tree junk drivers to compile. It took us MONTHS to rewrite their junk drivers. Never again, they are off my list *forever*.

Good phone ... moresdcards made sense when you had phones with only 256 MB flash *total* (including OS), in fact, they were downright essential. But I think that people just got used to thinking of sdcards as essential because of low-storage phones, rather than it being an actual necessity any longer. I was a bit worried about this myself when switching to a Nexus 6 when all my previous phones had sdcards, but what I realized, is that in each of those previous phones, I stuffed the sdcard into it the day I bought it, and never removed or changed it for the life of the phone, and now with 64 GB or more, I just don't have any need for additional storage. Sure, if I wanted to, I *could* fill more space, but I'm not left *wanting* more.
I think that anyone who really thinks about it will realize that its just not a critical feature any longer, and in fact, the more robust water resistance you get from reducing the number of possible points of ingress is worth more than the added utility of the card.
