Like you, I owned one of the original Pixel phones. It worked fine for the first four months but then began rebooting for no apparent reason. That problem grew worse until it finally went into a constant bootloop that couldn't be stopped. I contacted Google who advised me to put the phone into Recovery mode and perform a Factory Reset. I did that and got the 'screen of death' where the screen is black with a red triangle and the message 'This device is corrupt'. Because I live alone and have a heart problem I needed a phone that I could rely on 100%, and this phone wasn't it, so it went in the rubbish bin.

And now I'm just waiting for Xiaomi fan to tell you how you could save money by buying chinese phone... because I doubt they even read comments properly before replying xD
Main features of Google phones are issues. Hardware issues, and thanks to frequent updates - software issues aswell.
If you ever feel something just works right on your Pixel 2 - report it immediatley to Google and they will make sure to make it stopo working.
Also, you might be one of the lucky guys who got their Pixel 2 without OS.
This is why I use Motorola. Used to be a Nexus user but you're Google's lab rat with it. With Moto you're getting fast and fluid stock Android without having to be a beta tester and plus some nice extra features.

Sounds like fanboy BS to me
Pixel users = betatesters
No such issues in my og pixel XL, running 8.1 over a month
This is why I went for Nokia 3310. Just got Android Peppermint and the phone is as fluid as water. The phone also got IP69 certification through a software update. The camera performance has gotten much better. 100 MP front camera and 200 MP rear camera is working just fine. Love it! :)
I am a nexus user but I will buy s9 next time because I prefer Samsung stable updates to google fast and buggy updates
Answering an incoming call also, on Nexus 6p. You have to do multiple swipes...
Consumers buying pixel devices because of faster updates and stable OS, and Google provide these stabilities to their costumers, other manufacturers are slow regarding the software update but at least they provide a proper stable software update. Samsung done a great job and the only King of Android Kingdom

Since Android's first days, I used 10 different android phones, 6-7 were Samsung, a few HTCs and Motorolas, and now after using a Pixel for a year I couldn't be more happy, literally the first phone where even after one year I don't feel to upgrade the device to anything else. So save your nonsense for elsewhere.
Even with all the childish, deliberately injected bugs by Google this phone is far and beyond in terms of software experience than any skinned android device out there. In fact I just insulted the Pixel lineup just by comparing with other devices.
And as for this issue, of course its true. I often have to swipe up 2-3 times just to unlock from lock screen, and this started from 8.1 release obviously.
Another week, another problem for the Pixel. I actually feel sorry for the people who got conned into buying this.
Better than an update that will slow the phone down.
