It's a great phone; just be sure to buy from the Google Store. The Verizon Variant on the PIXEL 2 XL is not OEM unlockable; LOCKED BOOTLOADER.
No rooting or factory re-imaging possible
Any recommendations on a screen protector? I'd shop on Amazon.ca as I'm in Canada Has anyone bought one that goes on smooth without bubbles or peeling? Do I need one? I'm pretty careful with my phone's. Thanks.
marko97sx, 08 Mar 2018This phone is embarrassing. Look at those bezels. Yes, they're smaller, but man, the Xperia XA... moreI love this phone and I¬ím glad I made the decision to buy it. Came from an s8 still running nugget not Oreo and don¬ít miss it at all. Your opinion is just that.
If you can afford this device then headphones are a fraction of the cost, who don¬ít own headphones anyway. I had both nexus 6 and 6p and they were nothing special the 6p was fragile, bent easy plus it had the snapdragon 810 with heat issues that throttled performance because the 810 was a bad soc. The nexus 6 was a good device but had a battery that needed charging at minimum of twice a day. How have google f!!ked up in making a better device!!!
Fare enough if it¬ís not your type of phone but at least give a better reason for trash talk.
LIRKER, 01 Mar 2018If Snapdragon 835 available to have 4K display with 60fps rate, it is possible to record 4K 60fps.Sorry, this information is wrong. Snapdragon 835 has an ability to render 4K display with 60fps rate but it can't record 4K display with 60fps, it's hardware limitation. But it can render 4K video playback with 60fps. Sorry again.
AnonD-744409, 13 Mar 2018What about the battery life, how is it compared to S7edgeIMO this phone is pretty good. Battery life is about above average, about 5h SoT on browsing, music & video playback. About 4h SoT for gaming. My S7e was about the same with this phone in terms of battery life but keep in mind that I owned P2XL and S7e and my S7e was about 2 years old. Thanks for the question :-D
I really would love this device if the screen was better. Just been into my local CW and also the EE shop. CW no longer have it turned on, and stutter and stammer when asked why. The one in EE, it sadly had burn in, which was highly distracting. A fat "G" in the centre of the screen. Quite obvious too. Shame, because their cameras are fantastic. Hopefully they add wireless charging in the next one, and improve the screen. Much of the rest is excellent.
I have Pixel 2 xl , i phone x and note 8... so If I will go woth camera quality I will rate pixel 2 xl as number one and as per display quality it is okay cause they are using lg display and we all know i phone displays are best cauae they are made by samsung and if I will rate over all from 10 I will rate 8 as per my usage...so I recomend to buy this handset
Upgraded from my Galaxy S7 to the Pixel 2 XL. I loved that phone, but I can 100% without a doubt say that the Pixel is gonna be the phone I use for years to come. It's fast, the camera is top notch, the battery life is insane, and there are so many other positives that outweigh any negatives, for me. 9/10 phone, would recommend to everybody

I owned this one and it doesn't satisfied me. Fast updates and camera is not enough. They give the fast update but full of bugs. Screen touches problem after Oreo update. I'm in way to sell this phone to my friend, and stick with my S7 edge.
This phone is embarrassing. Look at those bezels. Yes, they're smaller, but man, the Xperia XA2 Ultra has the same screen to body ratio and still looks prettier than this phone. The advantage of Nexus phones were that they were cheaper. This is $900. What? Big side bezels, no IP68, just 67, an 'all aluminium design' when it's clearly a plastic coating, a thick one mind you. NO HEADPHONES INCLUDED WITH A $900 SMARTPHONE! No SD card slot, no wireless charging. The Pixel is the last flagship of 2017 and still lacks features, and COSTS $900! I wish that Google wakes up and realize where they actually f*cked up and revive the Nexus line. Way too expensive, I wouldn't recommend this phone to almost anyone. I don't care what MKBHD and others say. The price is not justifiable.
This phone was so close to being perfect. Why oh why didn't Google use Samsung for the 2XL screen instead of LG?
AnonD-569198, 22 Feb 2018Note 8Pixel XL 2. The battery on the note 8 is pretty disappointing to be honest. If you say the pixel xl 2 has poor screen I'd say go with the mate 10 pro
Iam thinking to switch to the Pixel 2 XL from my Galaxy Note 8 or maybe wait until Pixel 3 arrives? hmmm
AnonD-457393, 01 Mar 2018Ok thank you. Are the pixel 2 xls screen problems that much of an issue and I have Bluetooth h... moreThe screen quality really isn¬ít acceptable for a flagship in this price-range. All of them have some degree of blue shift but some are a lot worse than others. There¬ís also graininess and black smearing. This is because Google used LG for the 2XL screen, while the regular model uses a Samsung screen without these issues.
