Especially on a phone where you pay for every transmitted MB. Not to mention necessity for always active internet connection.
wqcr, 07 Oct 2017Let's see here. No microSD slot and no 3.5mm socket. PassWell Google phones never had micro SD cards so i don't know why even bring it up. Plus unlimited storage on the could is pretty sweet.
As far as 3.5mm jack goes, that i agree with you. Unnecessary omition to say the least.
Had nexus 5x ,first display went off replaced it under warranty,then came the dooms day after the update "boot loop",warranty lapsed on july , lg not bothered to repair the mobile. guess i just paid a hefty sum of money to a valuable paper weight. now again google has teamed up with lg for pixel 2 xl ... may god be with the pixel 2 xl customers.
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2017The Design is ugly. And look at those bezels they are largeYour forgot to add "in my opinion".....! Jeez, those bezels are large, seriously..? Where did you think those speakers should be placed? I don't see anyone forcing you to buy it, there is always the iPhone X with those bezels all around the edges.....wow, those bezels are also too large!
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2017The Design is ugly. And look at those bezels they are largeIf you look the pixel 2 then the bezels are huge. Especially as the Pixel 2 is (145.7 x 69.7 x 7.8 mm) and Pixel 2 XL is (157.9 x 76.7 x 7.9 mm). But well i don't care much as i don't have a need to buy my self a phone that cost more then 250 euro anyways.
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2017not a single mainstream consumer would choose this over a galaxy S8... only reason i can see your comment being valid is if by "mainstream consumer", you mean the iSheep that are Apple die-hards and believe everything they say is true and that their phones are always miles ahead of (instead of behind) any Android phone.

Release Oct 2017, Camera is of 2015 model phones, and still has NO SD slot.
IMHO - Still a crap phone, considering all available Hardware options.

I was eligible in August for an upgrade, but I waited for the Google Pixel XL 2. I am now severely disappointed. I do not want a 2 color phone, I want a white phone. I do not understand why it is so difficult o get a white phone. I considered the black and white but then it had that hideous orange button. I thought get a case to cover the button, but if I do that I will see only the black top and the front that is black. What is the point of what they have done with the colors? Why is the xl 2 only offered in black or black and white? It should be in offered at least in the same colors as the pixel 2. Why did they randomly decide to put an orange button the phone? Some thing make sense for logistics but color choices are not one of those for me.

AnonD-500649, 06 Oct 2017I agree 100%, that's one of the reasons I'll to using my iPhone.It is pointless and useless to make the camera good when your first impression when u look at the smartphone makes u cringe. Some will say "Discover the inner beauty". Yes, it is true, but most consumers would not want to use and hold a smartphone that looks like a cyborg from the back. I wonder who they hire for the designer this year, because its predecessor even though there are bigger bezels, the design is more pleasing, with no cyborg look from the back
