I have had this phone for 5 months; now it is dead.
1) Be aware that this phone is not water proof, not even water resistant. Get soaked when caught in heavy rain and your phone dies. And water damage invalidates the warranty.
2) This device has no expansion SD card; so you are limited to the in-phone memory.
3) You can get 32G (which is half of other modern high-end phones) or 128G (which is too expensive.)
4) This is a 4-core machine (4x2.2GHz) versus others which are 8-core (4x2.35GHz & 4x1.9 GHz). Less machine for more money.
5) No wireless charging
So think about getting this phone. It is sub-par on many levels.
That big ugly useless chin, that goes along with the big ugly body, reminds me of a television produced in the year 1955. Does the Pixel XL run on vacuum tubes? Do you have lug around a portable generator to power it?
Hi this is Aditya,
Google Pixel launched on 4th October 2016,
And today also it remains my personal favourite.
I want to present my views at first.
Before choosing a phone first decide ur needs.
If u want fastest processor
Go for an iPhone 7.
It has fastest processor any phone has ever had
If u want good display
Go for an Samsung's Galaxy S8.
My needs were:
Top class processor (though not best)
Super AMOLED Display
Great AI (GOOGLE ASSISTANT)
Fingerprint sensor which is back mounted
My these needs get full filled by Google Pixel
Iphone doesnt have
Back mounted Fingerprint sensor
Samsung doesnt have
Great camera (though it is good)
Top notch processor(it lags behind in antutu benchmark)
Solidness( it is fragile)
Repairabily capabilities (it ranks 30)
which one is better , pixel XL or huawei p10 plus guys ???
i need phone with fast charging n good battery life , n good performance no lagging n smooth .
AnonD-145316, 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.
FOE, 27 Apr 2017the worse part of this phone is.. It has no OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) Rest is perfec... moreIts a bummer that the didnt include optical stabilization but they did a good job with the digital stabilization, for me the worst part would be that the phone is not water resistant and the absence of stereo speakers especially at that price point.
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.
Scoutmom, 27 Apr 2017People can't hear me and say I cut out all the time! I can't hear the ring tones and notificat... moreI have a Nexus 6P. 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.
