Just like the Nexus 6P. Google donÂ’t make their own phones, so when they go wrong they canÂ’t fix them. My nexus has been a nightmare and after the Oreo update it turns off at anything below 50% charge.
AnonD-27765, 24 Oct 2017This is why you should not buy a Google product. Google products, be they software or hardware... moreExactly dude. Others call OEM apps as bloatware. For me these preinstalled useless google apps are the main bloatware. Samsung versions are so much stable and are better designed with clean UI rather than confusing google's UI in their apps.
Samsung email, browser, gallery, samsung pay are so much better than gmail, chrome, photos and most confusing app the android pay.
Just looking at the back of those phones.. they both look really terrible
Apple battery blow up
Samsung fragile glass and screen burn in (on some)
LG poor display (slight burn in and poor grayscale rendering)
HTC bend gate
Thanks manufacturers. These issues are all well-deserved for high end price tags.
I'll go with Sony. Camera distortion is just a software problem that can be fixed through software update or manually fixing it on editing tools.
This is why you should not buy a Google product. Google products, be they software or hardware, are nothing but betas/prototypes full of defects and bugs that will never be fixed. That's why on my Samsung Galaxy S7, I've disabled every Google app that cannot be uninstalled and replaced them with their Samsung app equivalents. Google apps are all buggy and laggy while Samsung apps are all smooth and fluid.
MKBHD did his best to defend pixel 2 but we all know for it's price and hardware issues pixel 2 is not worth it. Just but S8 or iPhone 7 plus and wait for pixel 3. I wouldn't recommend iPhone X coz if someone has that kind of money then what the hell, buy anything you want.
ZloiYuri, 24 Oct 2017They told about all family. Read what pixel 2xl users says. https://support.google.com/pixelph... moreOk then similarly you should blame HTC for this issue. Or you Cant blame any these two manufactures as its a software issue.
AnonD-526821, 24 Oct 2017Pixel 2 made by HTC not LG... Do some research before posting idiotic comment.They told about all family. Read what pixel 2xl users says. https://support.google.com/pixelphone/forum/AAAAb4-OgUsXuQgtm5dK8I/?hl=by
Read first, troll then.
Gunslinger777, 24 Oct 2017and that is coming from someone called note 7 owner lmao, your phone is so bad it got banned hahaAt least samsung could learn from mistakes and produce 3 excellent phones which are in top 5 phones this year ... lmao .. Google failed at hardware once again .. lol ... how many years do they need to learn from mistakes.
First gen pixel could not get basic features like bluetooth right and second gen cannot get basic hardware right which is display.
Their phones are as bad as their boring stock android which every time steals 2-3 year old touchwiz features .. lol
Samsung Wins Anyday in Android war
s4f786, 24 Oct 2017Lol please, make an effort before you post, HTC made the pixel 2 xl, the squeezable sides shou... moreThe regular Pixel 2 was made by HTC, but the XL was made by LG. Google rolled with two different OEMs this time around. It's clear as day on the official FCC filings: https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&RequestTimeout=500&calledFromFrame=N&application_id=weZxurzUIHK1fcxPS2B1%2Bg%3D%3D&fcc_id=ZNFG011C
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2017There is only one explanation....aliens....HTC aliens?
"Google Pixel 2 users reporting high-pitched and clicking sounds with their units"
It's almost like the phone itself is screaming and clicking it's tongue to express disagreement with the removal of the 3.5 mm headphone jack in Google's and HTC phones! :P
Need better pixel quality? Pixel xperia XZ premium, XZ1 or pixel motorola z2 force, both better than htc or LG
Everyone expects a premium phone to behave as such for a minimum of 2 years but what we are getting here are phones giving problems within a month of release. Google can escape if these are priced at Nexus 5 range but not at iPhone's level of crazy pricing. Seriously Google takeover htc or any hardware manufacturer you want and provide high quality products right out of box or make htc build quality phones for you just like how Apple makes other hardware companies to manufacture as per Apple's set of standards.
