I was eligible in August for an upgrade, but I waited for the Google Pixel XL 2. I am now severely disappointed. I do not want a 2 color phone, I want a white phone. I do not understand why it is so difficult o get a white phone. I considered the black and white but then it had that hideous orange button. I thought get a case to cover the button, but if I do that I will see only the black top and the front that is black. What is the point of what they have done with the colors? Why is the xl 2 only offered in black or black and white? It should be in offered at least in the same colors as the pixel 2. Why did they randomly decide to put an orange button the phone? Some thing make sense for logistics but color choices are not one of those for me.

BaconFace McGee, 06 Oct 2017I agree 100%, that's one of the reasons I'll to using my iPhone.It is pointless and useless to make the camera good when your first impression when u look at the smartphone makes u cringe. Some will say "Discover the inner beauty". Yes, it is true, but most consumers would not want to use and hold a smartphone that looks like a cyborg from the back. I wonder who they hire for the designer this year, because its predecessor even though there are bigger bezels, the design is more pleasing, with no cyborg look from the back
When all the phones will look like S8, V30, Iphone X, and so on..all the hipsters will buy this kind of phones.
Because human mentality.. at some point in the future everybody will say, looking at an infinity display phone: "What an ugly looking phone".
So, welcome to the world where everybody is pleased with nothing..
Disappointed, 05 Oct 2017What did Google think!!?? The designs are truly uglyI agree 100%, that's one of the reasons I'll to using my iPhone.

I think the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are silly and pointless.

Apart from these: super high price, lack of SD card or 3.5mm Jack headphones and... I don't like back panel
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2017Both phones don't have a SD Card slot.Probably do not need the slot. plenty storage on board and you get unlimited google storage
m1aman, 05 Oct 2017According to wired.com in an article printed yesterday October 4th if you buy the 64GB version... moreDid you not see "(there's no SD card slot for later expansion)" on the article?
Siddic, 05 Oct 2017That is one ugly looking phone, it's like a fridge. LOL!!!hahaha i totally agree!!!!
According to wired.com in an article printed yesterday October 4th if you buy the 64GB version you get an SD slot. For the 128GB, no. I admit it sounds like an odd thing to make two designs of the same model but that is what the writer claimed.
Many reviews are claiming a great phone with a lot of new, coolish features. True, no headphone jack and that sucks for those that like one. I like the aluminum case. I think the phone is ugly but I always buy a case for my phones and they are usually even uglier. Ha.
I don't give a hoot about whether a phone has skinny bezels or not. Actually, I prefer a bezel so I can hold my phone without fingerprinting the screen or opening an app.
But there is no way I will buy this phone. Not even for $400. I hate this new trend towards skinny phones. They are not practical for someone who surfs the web through a browser in the desktop mode. And I hate side scrolling to see an entire page. Nor do I give a crap about being able to use a phone with one hand. I wonder if that is why so many people drop their phones?
These things are not phablets they are just tall skinny phones. My next phone will be something from Xiaomi or Huawei. They know what a phablet really is. Something to replace your phone and tablet leaving you with one device.
