i have owned two pixel xl.
Owner of pixel 2 LX.
Recent charging issues with my unit. Resulted in warranty replacement.
My issue is google pixel is a premium phone, at a premium price and purchased directly from Google store. The replacement unit is a refurbished unit? humm should i feel let down do i expect too much? next question is will the refurbished unit only a 90 day warranty, or continue the reminder of 2 year hardware warranty?
After iOS 11 and my IPhone x and Oreo issues on the Samsung note 8, both are horrible flagship, the Google pixel 2 xl looks for me..
Think I'm going to get rid of my IPhone x 256 gb silver and my Samsung note 8 for the Google pixel 2 xl
Hope Google improve their QC with the Pixel 3 XL. Keep the panda design but use a better display panel!
I have the Pixel XL and my work phone is an iPhone 8. I only use the iPhone to FaceTime my wife and kids since they all have iPhones. This is hands down the best phone ever. It's so easy to use and the camera is out of this world. But the fact that it's a Google phone and it interacts with Google so well sets it apart from everyone

And trust me, phones are excellent at doing, what people use them for. The only problem is manufacturers not providing updates after a while, so we have to rely on the community to release updates.

Anonymous, 27 Mar 2018If only Google used the Samsung panel for this one instead of LG. It would be a 10/10 phone.would have made this device even pricier than it is now.

AnonD-747844, 28 Mar 2018sorry but to add i currently have this phone and love it there has been no problems with it at allYou have the Pixel 2 XL right? I'm excited for it! I was able to qualify for the financing which was running a deal for $200 back in credit and a free charger so $750 for the phone after everything which is a lot easier to stomach.

I would've have wanted the p20 pro with 128 and with it being $1100+ is too much for me. I guess for now both phones won't be available in the US anyway so it's out of reach for me. However thanks for letting me know about your reception experience!

I'm choosing between this and the just-announced Huawei P20 Pro. The only thing I hate about Huawei is EMUI but their cameras sound like beasts! I've used pure Android in the past and thought it was too plain and boring but that was in the Galaxy S4 era so it's been a while. Coming from mostly Samsung phones I guess I've grown accustomed to everything but the kitchen sink approach. Would you guys recommend the Pixel 2 XL for me? I also want the 128GB version which $950 seems like such a crazy price!
Soon, smartphone buyers will realize that phone upgrades every year or two is absolutely a waste of money and expensive smartphones do not deserve their price. Smartphone development has reached a plateau. Most people really only use phones for photo/video capture, Facebook, YouTube and some online browsing and gaming in addition to calling and texting. Any improvement in photo/video quality, processor speed, screen technology, phone unlock method, etc, doesn't add anymore significant improvement to the phone's usability, convenience and overall user experience. There is no reason smartphones should not have the same upgrade cycle as PC's (5-6 years) and more so, no reason why phones should cost more than good desktop PC's. Consumers/phone buyers are led to believe by phone manufacturers that phones need to be replaced every year or two when in reality, new flagship phones of today have nothing significant anymore to offer to improve the user experience than flagship phones from a year or two ago. In the final analysis, only 2 things will require a regular upgrade/change: 1. increase in storage needs as the years go by and as you consume more and more GB of storage data, and 2. battery replacement as the battery deteriorates through frequent charging and discharging. Apple and Google are really clever for not providing expandable storage and removable batteries in their phones. Those are the two components that will rapidly render even a properly cared for phone useless (storage full or rapidly discharging battery) in much shorter time. These tech industries need to be regulated. They are coming up with with more and more features that guarantee rapid obsolescence for a more frequent upgrade cycle.
