AnonD-673370, 04 Oct 2017Things I like : Screen Camera Ui / OS ( Stock Android ) Things I don't like No Headph... moreThing is google will never adopt SD because they firmly believe Onboard storage alone is better for performance which i kinda agree with honestly
Bad pricing, missing headphone jack, perennial issue of not having SD card slot, Using DxO mark to create camera hype even before it starts shipping..... almost every DxO mark phone review came after the phone started shipping but for last year's and this year's pixel, which went live with announcements of the phone which has a good month to hit the shelves..... Extremely dubious tactics by google. Can't believe they killed jack for stereo speakers, you can't listen using those at work or in commute, at home most have regular speakers, as long a single speaker is loud and clear enough to let me know about incoming call, wake me up in the morning, and i can clearly hear on speakerphone during call, it's fine, end of utility of speakers on a mobile phone right there for most of us. Wonder What's next innovation?? Ohh let's remove usb slot for a sub woofer in a phone now, coz you know we can use wireless charging anyways why the h e ll you need usb port will be the rant by these companies?? I d i o t s!!! all of them....
Things I like :
Ui / OS ( Stock Android )
Things I don't like
No Headphone jack
No Sd card
Google could've donne better I actually considered the 'old' Pixel but I wanted an Processor from this year. So LG V30 here I come !
Terrible screen to body ratio for a tall display. Why are the bezels so much thicker than the LG V30? Side bezels are thicker than last years Pixel XL...
Oh boy, this is huge! Why Google, why?? :( The Pixel 2 has small display, yet it is a big device.
Singh, 04 Oct 2017i m sure camera quality of pixel XL 2 is same like other dual camera flagship devices ????It's the best, top of the line
AnonD-562549, 03 Oct 2017lol? xddddddddddddddBefore Google unveiled the Pixel 2 this page said it had a headphone jack, that's why I was hyped but not anymore.
Such an unoriginal design in regards to the display. Everyone seems to love the "bezel-less" tall display and the rounded corners, but I'm already sick of it. Also why is the software getting more and more disoriented looking? This new "pixel" look is just so appalling compared to good ol' Material Design.
And seriously, we consumers need to do something about companies removing the headphone jack. We need to create an online petition, or even go to Google headquarters and protest.
LG V30 beats these specs in my opinion. Things the V30 has but the Pixel 2 (XL) doesn't.
-SD card slot
-Headphone jack (+Quad dac)
-IP68 (Pixel 2 is IP67)
- 13 MP camera with wide angle camera lense (The normal lense is 16 MP instead of 12 on the pixel 2)
-Thinner and ligher than the pixel 2 XL
Things that are a little better on the Pixel 2 is launch with Oreo, V30 will get that later. Front facing camera is only 5 MP on the V30, 8MP on the pixel 2. Stereo front facing speakers, just mono on the V30. Pixel 2 XL 3520 mAh, V30 3300 mAh. Otherwise the performance specs should be pretty similar, also take into account that the V30 is $/Â€/£ 40 Cheaper at launch compared with the Pixel XL.
AnonD-705508, 04 Oct 2017No sd card SMH. The only thing missing is the SD card. you can use google drive
Luke5119, 04 Oct 2017My only discrepancy is no Micro SD, only 4GB of RAM, plus 64GB and 128GB storage options, seri... moreas an android app developer I have just one question - do you really think you need 6 GB RAM? I know you don't. even my computer during app debugging and testing use only 2 GB and you can use only one app per time (yes, since nougat you can split screen and use two apps, but it's not the same) and apps in background don't need so much RAM as you think. I haven't seen apps that use more than 2 GB at time, never even made it. phone is great and it has enough of RAM.
Since it supports nano sim & eSIM, does it technically make it a dual sim phone?
Singh, 04 Oct 2017i m sure camera quality of pixel XL 2 is same like other dual camera flagship devices ????No, it's quite better judging by the photo samples and DxOMark.
Even now last year pixel has one of the best cameras atm, and this one claims to be much better.
No 3.5mm jack? I really dont understand why everyone is skipping it. Is there any real technical explanation why they are doing it?
Some will debate why cant you get a bluetooth headset. Have already tried out many of them and none of them can come close to a good wired headset. If they come out with a bluetooth version of the Sennheisser HD650 which sounds as good as the wired one, maybe I will look - still I will have to shell out hundreds of dollars to get the same experience I already have with me.
V30, here I come.
I am glad I haven't waited for this phone and bought something else. Google made a huge mistake by abandoning nexus line and its f/p policy. This phone is by far the ugliest in the market when compared to the other new devices. Not to mention crazy price tag too. I know google won't read this but they should undo their mistake of abandoning nexus philosophy and at least decrease that insane price for the start. Otherwise, I am sure they were in loss with pixel sales and I am sure it will be the same picture with the pixel 2. Not that they are in need of money ofc. Just an ex-nexus user giving humble opinions.
