@Google_Fan, Google has provided illimited storage. that's true but the trick is that this illimited storage is for a limited time. i hope i am wrong so it is wise to check and confirm on it.
Man... Google actually had a real chance with Pixel phones. All they have to do is undercut Samsung and Apple and they have a real winner due to their superior software.
Thank you for the detailed review. I'm a regular reader of your site. Regarding pixel 2 xl review, I would like to highlight few things that I beleive the review lacks. As a professional reviewer, I believe the review should get behind things and should have depth which the common man lacks or doesnt have time to look into. Regarding battery life, there is the comment that the talk time of pixel 2 xl is 7hrs short of pixel xl, though it has fared better in other endurances. The question is why and it's here I find the review misleading. The talk time has comedown not due to any inherent shortcoming of the device rather due to Oreo. I've pixel xl and earlier with nougat, the battery usage for 1hr talk time was mere 75mAh, whereas after oreo it has increased to 300mAh!! yes 4 times more and this is what has brought the talk time crashing down. I'm sure if you are to test the previous pixel, you wont be getting the class leading 34hrs, rather it would be much less than the pixel 2 xl. Wonder if an update from google could restore the previous power consumption. The other thing is, since it has an always on screen, was the test done with always on or off? Earlier I remember GSM used to give both ratings to see the difference especially for galaxies, why did it miss for this? Such trivial things are the ones that make a review standout from an average review. Hope you would update this in your forthcoming reviews. Thanks.
loudspeaker for voice calls is way too low.. i dont think i need stereo speakers on a phone.. i have a sony and they have stereo speakers since forever and they are nothing great to have compared to speakers on other phones.. because its just a small phone.. not a soundsystem..
this is my only down point for the pixel.. waiting for the them to test the loudspeaker on the pixel 2
do you know that google pixel 2 and google pixel 2 XL
have feature that you can upload unlimited free google drive cloud
for all your photos and videos.
that mean why you need internal or external memory if you can now just walk and capture.
thank you google for this feature and we hope you continue.
your services and beat all other mobile phones
Next year google should launch Pixel 3 XL with Dual sim, 256/128inbuilt memory, latest chip, and Android P, 6inch bessless rounded Amold display, good performance camera and battery, then I will definitly buy it in next year because it having features I most like, #Dual sim#Amold 6inch display #latest fastest updates......Google to god sake you should build dual sim pixels to tame the other phone companies.........

My Pixel XL measures 5.5" diagonally. Where did you see a 6" Pixel XL?
No matter what they are keep saying about this phone, I am still not cancelling my order.
The same they said about the last year Pixel, the best phone still, comparing to "blowing your eyes colours from Samsung".
if you want crappy photos and 1000 apps from Samsung go for them,reality is totally different than the internet,still living with 3no. S8 fans though , and the pictures are still looking awfull(good for the ones used with make-up).
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2017Nope. People buy Samsung because that's all they know. Just like Apple fanboysYes, if all these people really know is amongst the best out there, then why not?
Guessing that you're probably an Apple Fanboy yourself from that one sentence you spit out without even giving a whim of any information - unfortunate.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2017Says the guy that can only operate a phone with one button...iOS is for you then......
some user report "black smear" issue in this ...... anyone facing this issue too?
If you wonder why pixel is on top in camera performance: https://www.forbes.com/sites/paulmonckton/2017/04/30/google-long-exposure-smartphone-shots-are-like-dslr/#7dc285bb32a9
kinda wish I had such app in my phone...
James, 22 Oct 2017Can't believe how ugly this pixel lime upThey were never pretty to begin with in my opinion. At least the first Pixel had very few issues. This one may need a higher quality screen.

Apple problem is they dont make mid range devices. Maybe Appart from Iphone 5C.
Any person with at least some brain would know that having a phone for 200-400 eur at most is more than enough for all it needs.
Anyway more than 95% of global population just use their phones for messaging dialing internet, gaming listening music or watching videos, making photos or using camera and thats it. But like 60% or more of people over 50 of age use phones just for calls.
Man 4000 mAh? Apple dont have 4000 mAh in any of their phones and they selling for 900-1300 + 150 for wireless charging. Apple just copy like they did when they make IP68, Amoled, Wireless charging, 4k resolution etc.
Motorola begun everything and it was first creator of cell phone.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2017Crafty manufacturers. They just say it's 6" with 18:9 aspect ratio but they don't say the scre... moreActually, since the diagonal measures on both the Pixel XL and the Pixel 2 XL are the same 6", the Pixel 2 XL's aspect ratio means the screen has to be smaller. Keep in mind that if the diagonal is the same 6 in, then a 16 : 9 screen has to have a greater area than an 18 : 9 screen, because the closer a rectangle gets to square, the greater its area. Since a square screen would be 9 : 9, and 16 : 9 is closer to that than 18 : 9, the 18 : 9 screen has to be smaller (in terms of area; in terms of dimension, it's longer and skinnier).
But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Given the same computing power and dot pitch, a phone would run relatively more slowly with a 16 : 9 display than an 18 : 9 display, since the greater area would stretch the phone's graphics power over more pixels.
