Egash Josh, 05 Apr 2017So according to your statement Chinese phones can't be trusted!? Don't be such a hater!! Remember my friend! Chinese phones are now on par rather better. They are ruling the world economy. Now they make class leading products depending upon price. Samsung has fallen into a ditch by going edge. People want practical phones. So it's either iphone or Huawei in future. Its only a matter of time.
Looks good but doesn't work good. Lots of problems. First, it overheats. Next, the assistant starts operating without any actions on my part. Next, apps open and can start operating without my starting them. EG, the torch comes on for no reason. Brightness will dim to zero without any reason. The phone is not easy to answer and it is easy to make mistakes in trying to swipe up or press the answer button - depending on which way it decides it wants to be answered - and you can miss the call. The phone likes to make pocket calls - just touching the phone in your pocket can cause a call. Typing in apps can encounter annoying delays.
Possibly not Google's fault but Contacts cant be edited.
The main thing that got me to take the chance on Google's first high end phone was the expectation that Google would continue to improve it and any glitches would be quickly addressed. I have been using it for five months and am not impressed with the way it works.
As soon as Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is out, I am going to switch.

Anonymous, 27 Mar 2017Can anyone please tell me why I should buy the google pixel xl instead of the Oneplus 3T it w... moreBecause this isn't some Chinese stuff with messed up inconsistent software! Jeez! Its a trend of nowadays, most of these Chinese stuffs look absolutely gorgeous, on paper.

The same thing happened to me but i did some research and found out my phone has a noise cancelling microphone at the back of the phone, its a small hole. If it is covered, you sound muffled and people will say you sound far away etc.
SOLUTION : Take off your phone case.
ANDROIDLOVER, 25 Apr 2017for the next PIXEL(s), Google should re-think about the price, we can get better/similar phone... moreAgree, their price is over if you check it in specs but i guess their OS is more updated and Direct like apple OS, than other phone. but they dont think the marketing.
google pixle XL in Amazon
sony xperia XZ in Amazon
the worse part of this phone is..
It has no OIS (Optical Image Stabilization)
Rest is perfect... Best phone of 2017.. but bit expensive one..
no uSD == no sale - a cloud that you can't connect to may as well have precipitated. we dont all live in the city.
People can't hear me and say I cut out all the time! I can't hear the ring tones and notifications very well. I even installed a volume booster that didn't help. I googled this and found many others having same problems. Google, fix these issues!!!!!!!!!!
for the next PIXEL(s), Google should re-think about the price, we can get better/similar phones with cheaper price.
Jess, 10 Apr 2017Please help. Does Google Pixel XL MHL capable? Wanted to use Android Auto. Thank youIt does work with android auto. I use mine with a kenwood 893s.
This phone is brilliant. Previously I had note 3 that i've bought when it was all-the-way best but now it falls back slightly so I had to choose new phone. My wife's Galaxy S7 Edge is pretty damn good but it's slower, has worse camera, unresponsive fingerprint sensor and will take much time to upgrade to android O and probably will never get this android 9 update so this wans't really a choice. I love everything about that phone.
Please help. Does Google Pixel XL MHL capable? Wanted to use Android Auto. Thank you
One recurring problem, on all 4 Pixel XL phones.
Google assistant keeps talking without any prompt at all, even if the room is completely silent, with no television on, or even anyone in the room.
April 6th / 2017 i received a fix from Google, after installing the fix, there's no difference, if anything, it "may" be worse, (i doubt that the fix made it worse) I only say that because, before I went out today, April 8th, she spoke out once, after i returned, she spoke out 3 times, in 5 minutes, that's a first.
Does anyone else have a problem with the Google Pixel XL assistant, speaking out without​ any prompt ?
Don't use your phone if it getting very hot. Master reset and if no change then return phone under its warranty.
