Is it worth buying this phone? I know that performance & camera are great but those screen issues are a deal-breaker. Some say they're "not that bad" but if I'm paying top dollar for a flagship I want better than tolerable. I don't know why Google didn't use Samsung for the 2XL screen instead of LG.
YasirJashami, 13 Jan 2018Does it support dual sim cards like Samsung note8???Nope. Just has the one nano SIM while the eSIM is only for Project Fi right now.
Koprakannan, 11 Jan 2018Smooth software with fast animation .(simple)I'm puzzled because the fingerprint sensor takes 1 to 2 seconds to unlock the phone and a lot of reviewers on youtube claim it's the fastest scanner which is just not true.

Is the Google Pixel 2 Xl a good phone?? ( comparing to the other)
Me, 05 Jan 2018Finger print sensor is better than any other phone out nowReally ! Why ?
Google we all have huge amount of love for your cameras without the exception, but we are all looking forward at much bigger camera sensor with bigger pixels. Your 1/2.6" camera sensor in pixel 2/XL with 1.4u is awesome but if you choose 1/2" or 3/4" sensor with same 12MP camera that will be a mile stone.
I'm looking forward for this to happen in my next pixel 3 XL.
AllHailAndroid, 28 Dec 2017Samsung is better man. Samsung is the big boy in da market whether we like it or notBullshits ...just say its your points of view ..too easy to include everyone in the world in your view
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...
