Both the Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30 have major benefits over the Pixel 2... this is a pretty misfortunate device considering everything... especially for the price...
Why no Micro SD...
Why no headphone jack?
Why not ip68 certification like the rest of its competition or even MIL STD 810g like the v30?
Why not a dual camera like other flagships?
Why not further future proofed CAT 16 LTE like its competition?
Worse body screen to bezel ratio than its rivals...
It's not that it's a total disappointment it's still a great phone but... it should be leading the pack not following. They could have done even better.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2017It's worth bringing up the sd card , sure cloud is fine for the odd happy snap , However... moreIt's also worth noting that googles "unlimited" storage for photos and videos limits the quality... if you are storing 4K video it will use up your free gb's of cloud storage fairly quickly... unlimited is only for their "optimized" i.e. Degraded quality versions of your photos and videos and It limits photos to 16 megapixels and videos to 1080p anything larger uses actual storage and will require payment to expand your personal clouds storage.
Better than the original Pixel XL: bigger battery, better internal storage options, better processor. However, ugly elongated 18:9 aspect ratio, and lost the headphone jack.
Still lacks dual sim, dedicated sd card support, slimport support, IR blaster, FM radio (requires the headphone jack as antenna). Therefore, it still does not stand out from among all other SD 835 flagships. No unique selling proposition other than stock Android updates and that Google logo.
Like the original Pixel phones, this Pixel 2 XL and the smaller Pixel 2 will both repeat the miserable sales of the original Pixel phones. Google never learns that it cannot be like Apple. Good luck, Google. Hope you can reach 1 million Pixel 2 XL phones before the Pixel 3 XL arrives.
Just waiting far qulcome quick charge 4+ charging speed test from 0-100%

Google really played themselves by mocking the headphone jack removal last year. But everything's heading to wireless in 2 years time every thing will be Bluetooth so it's not too much of an issue more just an early inconvenience.
R.I.P headphone jack Probably next year all Company's will ditch the headphone jack soit will extinct in 2k18. 2019 for sure there will be none left lol.
I think the price it pretty high.
google product is good but considering the price it's not good.
Krishna Chandel, 12 Oct 2017Which company made Google pixel 2 xl and Google pixel 2?HTC did the first pixel line and this one too.
I've got a USB C thumb drive that rotates around into a USB A. Transfers files quite fast and reliably. It would be awkward to leave in 24/7, but it certainly comes in handy and works well with my Nexus 6P, Pixel C, Chromebook Pixel, and should work well with my Pixel XL 2 once it arrives.
