I puked when they showcased this monstrousity, and shat when the backside showed up....
Apart from these: super high price, lack of SD card or 3.5mm Jack headphones and... I don't like back panel

AnonD-661928, 05 Oct 2017That is one ugly looking phone, it's like a fridge. LOL!!!hahaha i totally agree!!!!
According to wired.com in an article printed yesterday October 4th if you buy the 64GB version you get an SD slot. For the 128GB, no. I admit it sounds like an odd thing to make two designs of the same model but that is what the writer claimed.
Many reviews are claiming a great phone with a lot of new, coolish features. True, no headphone jack and that sucks for those that like one. I like the aluminum case. I think the phone is ugly but I always buy a case for my phones and they are usually even uglier. Ha.
I don't give a hoot about whether a phone has skinny bezels or not. Actually, I prefer a bezel so I can hold my phone without fingerprinting the screen or opening an app.
But there is no way I will buy this phone. Not even for $400. I hate this new trend towards skinny phones. They are not practical for someone who surfs the web through a browser in the desktop mode. And I hate side scrolling to see an entire page. Nor do I give a crap about being able to use a phone with one hand. I wonder if that is why so many people drop their phones?
These things are not phablets they are just tall skinny phones. My next phone will be something from Xiaomi or Huawei. They know what a phablet really is. Something to replace your phone and tablet leaving you with one device.
The pixel 2 xl design is an improvement from the previous one. What is clear is Google designers ignored competition. If the didn't they would pushed further boundaries. This phone falls short compared to S8, G6, Mi mix 2 from design perspective. Otherwise well done
xXENDER FREAKXx, 05 Oct 2017Idk why other people say the design improved, but for me, it got worse. Its predecessor design... moreTrue, the back body on Pixel 2 is really looks like cheap phone design like ehem Redmi 3.
The spec of pixel 2 xl seems not so attractive to me. Oneplus 5 still good in term of spec except the camera
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2017no 3.5mm jack? yes no 3.5mm jack, there is only one usbC port you will also get a dongle out of the box for connecting aux or regular headphones

Its predecessor design is much better and beautiful. I like the front of this phone, but the back? It disappoints me, if I have my first look on the smartphone without using it, the first question I will ask is "Why is the back uglier?" And if I look at the smaller variant it definitely got worse. Its predecessor design is more rounder than this successor's small variant, which looks better. I know the camera is "top-class" level for me, but for the looks it is a no no. They did better with its predecessor, and I have no idea how they made such a design this year
