DEFINITE BUYERÂ’S REMORSE!
I purchased a Google Pixel XL Oct. 2018 and I am on my 4th phone!
Long story Â– short: My phones have had hardware issues that created cases to have the phones replaced. I have looked up these issues and they seem to be common with this phone: 1) The microphone quits working and people canÂ’t hear you talking and 2) The phone freezes up and dies.
The WORST problem is that I chronically canÂ’t receive or send most of my texts messages as well as calls with all of the phones that i have had! I have to continually restart my phone no matter where I am.
There is NO Google help and I have spent a stupid amount of money for a phone that doesnÂ’t work!
The longer story: My other family members have iPhones and Samsung Droids and they donÂ’t have those problems. I have dealt with Best Buy (where I purchased my phone) as well as Verizon (my provider) and, at the end of the day, they are telling me that it has to be a hardware problem and that I need to go straight to Google to get the phone fixed.
Dealing with Google has been a pure nightmare! I spent over an hour on the phone with them and they ran all sorts of tests and then they had me return the phone with the promise of a new, NOT refurbished phone. SO Â– I had to send the phone in first and THEN they will send me a phone so IÂ’m out of a phone for over a week! GRRR! I just go an email stating that I will get a REFURBISHED phone sometime NEXT WEEK!
Trying to get a hold of Google support is another issue! You canÂ’t get a number or name to call since the page just flips back and forth to the same page. Then, I tried to do an online chat and that was EXHAUSTING! After being online, for over an hour, and dealing with 3 different people, I finally figured out that they just keep giving you the run around until you just give up! Their conversations were totally ridiculous and it was clear that they werenÂ’t reading my chats as well as they were not going to be able to help me out.
Salaam to all..

I have had this phone for about 15 months. It started with Android 7, and I recently got 9. I haven't had any issues from the phone. I don't notice it heating up a lot, but I do not typically use those fast chargers. I plug my phone in at night, and unplug in the morning. That is usually enough of a charge to easily get me through the day. I don't care as much for 9 as I did 8.1, but I'll get used to it.
I haven't noticed any slowing down of the phone, even after two major OS upgrades. Previous androids (motorola, htc, etc) I was lucky to get one OS update, and might get the patches every 6-9 months or so. But with my Pixel I get the OS upgrades the day they are released, and any security patches typically arrive on the 5th of the month. Plus not having bloatware is reason enough for me to stick with Google phones for the foreseeable future.
David09, 27 Aug 2018Android PieI just updated mine to 9.0 nothing wrong until now ...I had a pixel (small version) a month ago...came with 8.0 and wanted update to 8.1 ...I returned it...I was getting the same problems as you described you have on pie.
DealBreaker, 24 Aug 2018What version of android are you on ? ...8.1?Android Pie
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2018Anyone got the 32gb version? Do you quickly run out of storage?I only use half so far
Bad, 14 Aug 2018U tell me that s7 edge work better than Google xlYes, I used both phones and of course XL is better than s7 edge in my opinion. But, it depends upon your preference what you like. For me I prefer XL over s7 edge.
this is such a good phone when u off to diving and alaska..
very much recommended.. it will warm you hot enough..
don't trust me? get 1 pigcel and open instagram, facebook and twitter..
then your cake will be well baked :)
and if u want to boom your ex, open some more few apps for half an hour then your pigcel now is a hand bomb :)
i don't mind bout spending money.. i am rich.. but i need a phone not a hot square bricks on my hands
Guys, it depends on your phone but my Pixel XL runs very smoothly even after Android P update. Comparing with Samsung phones released in the same year, performance wise, my Pixel XL outperforms S7 edge which I used last year. Appearance wise, Samsung phones may look more stylish.
Agreed with some opinions here, you can experience with clean Android no bloatware.
I've had this phone for over a year now, and it works like a champ. Never had any of the issues some people mention in the comments. 2 years after it's release and it's still a very reliable phone with great battery life. I'm sold on Google phone. It will give you a clean Android experience. I've had Samsung phones (Note 2 & 4) in the past, but both of them started lagging within a year, not to mention all the useless bloatware.
Who's dumb and dumber, better choose another smartphone that is better than Samsung and Google Pixel. Outside there must be something extraordinary. Once again there is no perfect smartphone.
If you don't like this phone...you're dumb. Go ahead and drop that money for Samsung S/Note Series phones that are not only filled with bloatware (seriously, who uses Samsung apps other than smartswitch anyway?), but will also kill your wallet up front and for any subsequent repairs. Or, go with LG, who has unabashedly admitted to having known problems with the logic board that bricks your phone. OR, go with the all-so-sexy iPhone which is known for being problem-free and oh-so innovative. Google makes Android- period. Pound-for-pound, with the unlimited google storage, first to get android updates, amazing camera, and competitive price and repair cost- this line of phones is the best out there. If you are having problems with your phone (and I know you will only comment to this part) you probably don't take care of your things properly! Or, you have a million apps running all the time, or you have some BS like an AV or "Booster" app installed and/or a crap-ton of garbage apps loaded with ads or any other number of things done improperly that would otherwise kill any other phone. Pixels are all I'll buy from now on!
Google pixel XL _ The waste product I have ever used. ItÂ’s just been 7 months since I have purchased google already motherboard issue , microphone issue , and phone is getting heated too much. Now from customer care service they are not ready to replace the mobile. Never ever think to get this mobile.
