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.

I have a Pixel XL 128GB. It's fast, sharp, takes great pictures, opens PDFs (really... you couldn't open a PDF?) and runs all of the 20+ apps I have installed. I think other readers would do well to ignore your post(s).

Every interaction I've had with Google has been outstanding. See my other posts on the topic. They don't hesitate to replace the phone if it can't be sorted out in short order.
AnonD-702115, 21 Sep 2017What are the ups and downs? Someone who owns the Google pixel XL tell me, please.You'll want to get a Speck case, or something grippy. The phone is very slick. It wants to jump out of your hand. Why can't these manufacturers make phones less slick... The Speck case works great and my Nexus 6P case protected that phone despite several drops. I expect the Pixel XL case to do the same.
The 6P had its issues, but Google customer service was beyond outstanding. I have no complaints at all with how they treat me as a customer. When the camera glass cracked, they sent a new phone, no questions asked. Software update caused an unrecoverable bricking, new phone in two days. Battery not charging? Free upgrade to Pixel XL. Maybe I get better service because I also pay for 2TB of storage, but they are always pleasant and cal me within a couple of minutes of requesting support.
I also find it's a lot easier to get help from people when you don't treat them like they caused the problem. All of these support people are there to help. They didn't make the device, they didn't cause the problem, they are just there to try to fix it. Most are very nice, humble people who want to solve your issue(s).
Is it annoying that the device has failed to live up to our expectations? Sure. Can you change the fact that the device in your hands has decided to not work as expected? Not without help. Are people you don't know more or less likely to help a person who is berating them for something they had no control over? In the case of Google support, I think they'll do their level best, even if you're a jerk to them.
After the disastrous two years I've had with the Nexus 6p I'd never buy a Google phone again. They have completely ignored their customers and to make it worse, the Oreo update has killed the battery and caused the phone to crash.
Ishu, 21 Sep 2017This phone is pathetic I am using since 2 months and believe me It's worst phone I ever used... moreI fully agree with this. Google should concentrate on software rather than hardware. Google pixel XL is example of abject failure of Google. Hanging frequently, no good ringtone no good camera no good back button. Very highly priced. No shop to fix the problem only online support available and that also very worst. During warranty period replacement is with refurbished model which may be older than your phone. So please do not buy Google phone

The first started of with loss of headphone sound, then all sound, then charging port before it died in it's sleep! Now this Pixel XL is having problems with the playstore and requires multiple restarts to get the playstore to finish updates! Definitely upgrading back to a Samsung!

The phone is very fast, there is absolutely no buffering when loading photos, and the battery goes for about 20 hours when using facebook, instagram, browsing, etc.
AnonD-702115, 21 Sep 2017What are the ups and downs? Someone who owns the Google pixel XL tell me, please.Best android phone I've ever had and I have had every Nexus since the beginning. Really fast, vibrant, clear screen and the first "Nexus" camera to rival and iPhone.

This phone is pathetic I am using since 2 months and believe me
It's worst phone I ever used
I must say Samsung is very promising brand in terms of cellphones
But Google !!!!you guys failed
I wish Google phones should be discontinued as soon as possible so ppls don't get cheated
Low battery life
Hangs too much
Every thing goes taking time for buffering even to see photos
No good reason to buy
And Google company will not be responsible for any complain you have regarding phone problem
They don't respond
I hate Google pixel XL
Hate Google phones
Good phone, I love it, simple and easy to use. No problem with the battery. Cool Camera.
Very satisfied overall.
I was very excited to get the new Pixel XL. Love the size, the picture quality. Using the speaker on a call is something to be desired. Everyone says I sound like I'm underwater. Also battery life hype is a joke.

I have one, and I am REALLY enjoying it !
And for the battery, if you are the kind of guy who sees "200 hours", and thinks that it will actually last 200 hours, you're totally lost.
