Using this phone now for around 4 day and so far it seems to be performing well. (don't want to jinx it). Screen looks exceptional and the tint that many others are experiencing is not bad on mine at all. I would say for those of you that have this phone with severe tint issues and are able to exchange for another unit, I would do so. As there are others out there with the normal levels of tint that you would find in other phones with this screen.
Now to compare this to my regular size Pixel 2. They both have the same specs except for the larger screen...Well first off, the dual front firing speakers on my Pixel 2xl sound much more punchier with the base than the regular Pixel 2 and just sounds much more high quality on the xl. Battery is fantastic and both my regular Pixel 2 and this XL hold up really well. Yesterday I played alot of music and browsed you tube and browsed Chrome and in hours I still had around 50% battery left.

I like the idea of this long-term review, and I am looking forward to more. The reason I value user opinions alongside authority reviews is that the user has the benefit of long-term exposure to a product that the reviewers don't. The format that this long-term review adopts by immersing reviewers in the shoes of a long-term owner brings greater context and objectivity to the review, giving potential customers the benefit of both worlds. Great idea, excellent value! Looking forward to Mate 10 Pro and V30.
So far I can't comment about any screen burn as I've swapped from Pixel 2 to the XL and only been using it less than a day. What I can tell you is that the blue tint on my device is hardly there, but no where near as bad as some of xl's I've tried in store. I'd say Google could have fixed the issue with newer batches.
The phones camera is awesome. I made a short video using the newly released AR camera... I think the possibilities are endless.... Can't wait for more...
AllHailAndroid, 28 Dec 2017Samsung is better man. Samsung is the big boy in da market whether we like it or notBigger doesn't always mean better, I would rather have something properly made from a small company than something made carelessly from a large company, hoping your logic is upto standard you can figure which is which.

Sony does the same, Samsung is mere marketing success, nothing innovative, everything copied. Look at the Note 8 already having problems..still a fail after all these years.

Amazing as it is, what I love the most about this phone is the accent color power button. Hope this becomes a trend for future smartphones.
I wish it could have the Dual sim Variant. The only thing lacking in pixel 2 .

S8 is for people who prefer overall deisgn and screen quality.
Pixel is for people who care about the software and regular updates.

Those bezels ( same as pixel 2 ) in my opinion ruins the design..... The camera is to say the least dire.
