More than one year after the launch, Google Pixel XL is still an excellent phone. I have been using Android Oreo without problems; the battery can last easily 2 days on light usage. ;)

You can easily do it yourself by flashing the factory images through ADB. You may not even need to factory reset it. Go to XDA forums, best info for phones
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2017Which is better iphone 7 or pixel xl Google Pixel has a sony 12.3 mega pixel its rated highest in camera. It has an extra gig of ram and excellent ram management. No slow downs with this device. I love the rear mounted finger print scanner. The speakers are very soft i have to put the volume at 2/3 to hear it. Google assistant is 10/10 better than siri. I love google integration with the phone. If i had to recommend a phone either this or 1 plus 3t or 5
I abhore my Pixel phone...the dealer wants to reset it from scratch..might take them on it...battery life is terrible...pressing symbols can mean absolutely nothing..it calls people at 3am while in the charger...completely unresponsive at times...much too slippery to hold onto...I use the waterproof case frequently but that limits the typing area...I've got very little to say about the original Pixel other than I can't wait until the program expires in 16 months..I had good success with Motorola units and will go back...also the Pixel is WAY overpriced.
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2017Which is better iphone 7 or pixel xl Personally ive been with apple for a long time and i think the pixel is better. Fast charging, better screen resolution, Etc. Plus its android, you can customize everything about the OS.

rajesh, 01 Oct 2017why all copy apple design...iPhone present design was copied from HTC.
I've had all the nexus phones previously and the pixel XL is the best phone I've ever had. Fast, smooth, great battery life, great camera. Google are very helpful if contacted with an issue. All in all - fantastic phone, pricey but worth the extra.
In the camera section of the specs it says - EIS (gyro) which is contradictory.
OIS uses gyro whereas EIS doesn't

The best phone I have ever owned without a shadow of a doubt! Charging is brilliant, the camera is fantastic, the software is so smooth and has almost no lag. And I left the house with 70% charge this morning and still have more than 40% left! That is with a long period of use as I use it for work also.
I don't like it for a couple of reasons. It seems more difficult to type on. It's not as responsive and snappy as an iPhone. There are no internal settings to stop the volume control from adjusting the ringer so that I can't hear my calls coming in. That really pisses me off. I have had 3 Android phones since the iPhone and I miss it. It never lagged and was always easy to use. Except a Siri used to drive me around in circles and navigation and that really pissed me off haha.

Anyway, just download adobe or any app that has pdf in the name if you see this.
