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.

The phone is fine, and I am TOTALLY satisfied with my Pixel XL.

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.
AnonD-687499, 03 Aug 2017Hi everyone Ive just taken a contract for a Pixel xl, I'm a week and have no problems at al... moreDO NOT BUY THIS PHONE OR THE NEW ONE THATS COMING OUT SOON. Youd think since google provides the platform for android devices that theyd have a better or atleast similar software quality but nooo. Its not just about the phone not having an ip68 rating for the price point that should give you that feature, its not just about shit hardware, its also about their software. Can you believe that. Cant even open a pdf file talked to their support for an hour to no avail. This shouldnt be classified as a smart phone, it should be called a DUMB PHONE. I wish i could have it refunded would rather get a samsung phone even an older version like an s7/s6 would still be better than this pretentious phone hyped up by google.
Battary charge in 15 minutes for one hours is totally false I am use it s
Jeff, 23 Aug 2017I bought two of these. My wife's display cracked after only one week. She did not drop it and ... moreBad to know it, I was thinking about buying one of them and now after your review am going to decide on another one.
It's strange that despite that Corning gorilla glass 4 they come with both were broken, poor materils quality imo.
I bought two of these. My wife's display cracked after only one week. She did not drop it and it was in a rubberized case. Google refused to fix or replace it because they stated "it was not damage covered under the warranty". Now, less than six months after buying them, my screen had cracked. Honestly, I did drop mine but only from about a foot high onto a carpeted floor. Poor quality and terrible customer service if you ask me.
Love it. Use camera for work slow mo video. voice recognition amazing with australian accent. everything so well integrated and does everything. like apple but can easily make adjustments.
had one replaced after 5 months, no questions asked. retailer told me only google do that, other makes, send it away to be repaired and you wait... mic stopped working well.
I'm a huge fan.
AnonD-687499, 08 Aug 2017Ummmm!! Think you misread the question..I basically asked if the bad reviews had any substance... moreThere are substance to people's opinion of the phone but I wouldn't take it as most people's experience. Every phone brand has their share of people who have issues.
Justsaying, 05 Aug 2017That's what we call ( buyer's remorse ) , forget what others are saying , that's just their op... moreUmmmm!! Think you misread the question..I basically asked if the bad reviews had any substance, no one wants a phone if it's known to have issues.
So your very wrong to suggest I have buyers regret
That's what we call ( buyer's remorse ) , forget what others are saying , that's just their opinion , f you don't experience any issues , keep it
Unless you are throwing money to the wind , keep moving n doing it
Can you imagine , if everyone changed phones just because some cons posted on line
The sales on every brand and model would be through the roof
AnonD-687499, 03 Aug 2017Hi everyone Ive just taken a contract for a Pixel xl, I'm a week and have no problems at al... moreIf you having no problems and you satisfied with the phone then keep it unless the s8 is what you really want. I personally wouldn't change a phone solely on online comments I read. If that's the case you'll be constantly changing phones.
AnonD-687499, 03 Aug 2017Hi everyone
Ive just taken a contract for a Pixel xl, I'm a week and have no problems at al... moreHey I can only give you one advise if you able to get rid of this crappy device just do it it will save you lots of hassle.
Google support is a joke.
I put my .02 cents in for you now it up to you what you do.
Ive just taken a contract for a Pixel xl, I'm a week and have no problems at all however I'm looking at the reviews and think i should change it for a s8 as people seem to be having a lot of problems with no help from google.
or do i keep it??
I am very excited to upgrade to Google Pixel XL. I have been using Samsung Note 4 and 5 till now. For the first 15 days great experience, however just after my 15 days return policy expired I started facing the following issues.
1. Bluetooth seems to disconnects from my car when a call ends. I cannot receive any calls or make calls till the time I don't restart the phone and re pair phone with my car Bluetooth.
2. I was advised to reset the phone. I ensured that all of my data, SMS and calling history is backed up from the phone. The phone indicated that these are backed up. Upon resetting I was told by Google CSR that it does indicate on the phone that it's backing up calling history and SMS, however it does not. I lost all my calling history and SMS.
3. Wifi does not turn on automatically when I arrive at home, I need to restart the phone or put in the password every time. You may be looking up HD videos and realise that all your mobile data is used up on a weekend.
4. the screen is reddish and I have been informed by the Google support that this is a hardware issue and cannot be fixed with software update.
I did buy an extended warranty from the retailer, however, all replacements are refurbished phones, essentially buying refurbished phone for the price of New Google Pixel XL.
Joji, 16 Jul 2017I agreed this phone is not worth at all I m having a same issues and there SO CALLED GOOGLE SU... moreCompletely agree Google support blames everyone. I had to prove to them it was their issue and then they said.... Oh I don't know what to do then. REALLY THANKS!
I have had this phone for over 8 months and I can't wait to get rid of it. Wifi calling shuts off randomly. When it is on it still breaks up when making phone calls. I live where there no service so wifi calling is important. Can't access visual voicemail while at home. Contacted Google and after 8 months of arguing with them they said if I mail them my phone they will send a replacement. I told them if they pay for that weeks worth of service that I won't have my phone I would do that. They refused. Really hopeful for this phone and it has been a slap in the face the while time I owned it. Never will buy a Google phone again.
Good phone. Issues with overheating with Daydream viewer are resolved by using an aluminum heat sink. I seem to have some issues with losing 4G on occasion, a better antennae is in order for the newer version. Love the phone otherwise.
